I love it! Who is the maker of the wood cab? That will be fun. Some better photos are a must. We like photos so get good at it. What year? Auxilliary transmission?

Michael- you are going to have a ball with that truck!
This was a parade in Fayetteville, TN in 1998. We had fun and always drew a crowd. Notice Davey Crockett (Pappaw) on the end- Yes- That is a real antique muzzleloader. And yes, he walked the streets beside and ahead of the truck passing out candy to the kids. Nobody ever said anything negative about the gun- but then, that was in a previous century.





Here's another shot. We won the BIG trophy. A great day with the family.

gonna have to take some more tomorrow.1922(we will see) starter/generator looks like the shifter works what my untrained eye is a overdrive. Don't know who built the cab. Water pump is frozen, carb is a lawnmower replacement(on the floor of the cab nothing on the motor. some one has made an attempt at restoration a while ago but has been treated pretty well...will be at the tea party

And some of the tires hold air? That's just too cool.
Nice lookin' TT!
What Dallas and Bill both said. :-)
Shoot, your TT has paint on it.
My TT left most of its paint elsewhere. :-)
Anxious for you to have it running!

Moved house, planted garden, worked on a 1939 Wolseley (10 hp) I have had for 28 years, married off 2 kids, 'helping' daughter and son in law renovating house, and now I have started on a '24. Not sure what body it may have yet.

Adrian's truck does what a TT was meant to do. Makes me want to get back to my TT project.

and now I can say that I have tackled repairing a tube on the front split rim and the tube on the LR had sucked into the hole...Why? cause the wheel was 180 out and the index point was missed...wheel slipped. much larger wheels on the rear and a whole nuther level of Split ring wheels.

more later
Michael

Those split ring rears are the wheels that want to kill you. I took mine to a tire shop where they could mount the new tires in a cage.

okay so during the tire repair I found the wheel bolts and nuts on the rear were rounded making for a bit of work ...Question..the rear wheels have 5 sets and the front have 4 sets. are the bolts and nuts the same size? I cannot find anything that relates to the TT only sets of 4 for the T any help?
