If this isn't the coolest thing on the planet right now... It even has all the trick accessories to go with it!
Won't let me see it unless I can sign in. One of the reasons I do not like facebook.
However, I am a disagreeable S O B.
Early type Roof Model A 16 valve head from around 1918 on a 1926-27 T engine with side drive mag and Winfield Model M carb. Way cool to hear it run.
I clicked the Link, a Popup does come up asking you to sign in to see more content, but if you just click the "not now" option in the popup, you can view the video.
So what car is that going in? Seems like it'd give a speedster a wicked top end. Heh, with my Chicago and 3:1 Ruckstell I bet it'd make my speedster bust 100 no problem.
I suggested to the Ranch hands that this would go well in my TT. I think
they are mulling it over .....
That is very inspirational (considering I have the similar one but with the spark plugs on the side). Is this where the valve covers are going? Thank you for the video
The valve covers are for another Roof 16 (my roof). This engine is from and going back to Polson, MT. I'm pretty jealous.
Is that the head you have been playing with for a couple years? It does look great with all the period accessories. I don't think it will pass the pre-race inspection on the 18th though.
Speed cost money as we all know. . .
I finally had a few minutes to try again to see the video. Thank you for the suggestion, but I still could not see it. Of course, part of the problem may be that where I live, the best I can get is only about twice the speed of dial-up (I am on DSL). Even though I am only two miles from downtown Grass Valley. Also one of the reasons I gave up on facebook a few years ago.
I am on Facebook and still could not watch it.
I gave up on facebook about a year ago. Their weapon policy was the final nail. Seems you could get reported for selling a squirt gun and as a builder of black powder weapons I decided to let it go.
On the other hand I still have access to my wifes profile and found a complete 1927 T (wires with near new tires) minus frame, body, and steering coloumn for a STEAL. All running and apparently the engine and rear have been gone thru. It almost make me rethink my facebook decision.
I have no connection to the listing, its just something I found
I like the later model Roof, but I am in love with the Model A. I love the spark plug set up. Almost like a Hemi. I love the way that the wires thread through those funky rockers. The 1 1/2 intake ports per cylinder is also pretty cool.
If the moderators are okay with it, please share a few pictures of your black powder weapons!
I spent 10 days hiking in New Mexico and had the opportunity to shoot a brand new .50 cal black powder smoothbore muzzleloader. It was an experience, to say the least.
Here is a Youtube Link for those of you who don't FB.
