As others have said, there is a wealth of Model T information locked up in this and earlier years' forum threads. So much, that it may seem daunting to find older threads that address your immediate question.

Fear not! You can easily find what you are looking for by using your favorite search engine, just add "mtfca" to your search string, and dozens of earlier threads on your subject of interest will appear!

OK, in the case of "which oil should I use", thousands of earlier threads will appear. :-O

I have found a wealth of information by doing just that. Still some subjects I know are there elude me. Perhaps I'm not using the right oil in my Search Engine. :-)
Thanks
Rich

If you are using a laptop, make sure your computer is plugged into the AC outlet "MAG" while searching. It works better than Battery.

You can also put the year in the search if you know when or who's post you are looking for then advance or retard the timing as necessary

Google keeps changing the secret handshakes (exact placement of quote, parenthesis, and other punctuation as well as order of restrictions). After fighting that sort of gamer mindset for thirty years at work, I have no tolerance to play those games any more. What used to take me right to wanted threads, now gives me literally thousands of threads that do not meet what I asked for at all. Maybe ten of the first thirty threads will be mtfca, half of those won't match the year. I might find what I am looking for after scanning through several hundred offerings that are completely wrong.
When I worked with engineering? That was what was called "designed to fail".

Wayne,

You're 100% correct. Google only gives the first 2 results from MTFCA, the rest is total, unrelated garbage!
