Re: AC brakes and richard Baughmans setup

I have them installed on my small drum 1913 Speedster and the parking/emergency brake is not attached to this setup, it stays independent. Its very important to keep the pivot bolt on the AC shoes with a little space to prevent it from fatigue and breaking the shoe.

Re: Model T coil tester advice: HCCT, Strobo-Spark, ECCT

I have the ECCT and love it, easy to learn and use, it's a lot of fun to rebuild your own coils and have your car run fantastic and all accomplished by you. You can at your leisure, test and adjust your coils for maximum performance Here is a link to my Facebook page, showing some coils I'm setting ...

Re: Lower the Column for a Speedster or Anything Else

Hank,

I like the ways it looks under the dash, nice and very well hidden, so a larger person will be comfortable driving, lots of room for large shoes to work the pedals.
