Re: WTB Superior Fatman Steering Wheel Parts

Also, be sure to watch eBay auctions for parts wheels. The identifying ring is sometimes missing, and also on some, the rings were not stamped, or possibly stamped with some private label. Thus, the seller may have no idea who made it. These were made a half mile from where I was hatched.

Len, if you can source a damaged TT radius rod, they were used in the day to make a trailer hitch. Sure better than shipping heavy iron over there. The holes line up to the rear spring clamps. Cut to length needed. Probably a simple brace would be involved.

Re: Ford Model B - fact and fiction

Here is what little I have, Rob. These are pics of the discovery of B#1. I wish now I would have recorded the story. It was found in Missouri, and the tall old farmer was the owner. He was going to restore it one day. LD Porter convinced him that he’d rather have a couple hundred bucks. A couple sma...

Re: ARE THEY NUTS?

Read up on the Spanish Flu, Bob. It really wasn’t Spanish, they think it originated in China. They still don5 really know how many millions died from it. Poo poo it at your own peril. No crowds for me until it dies down.

Re: Substituting for a part: Is there a metallurgist in the room?

Chinese metallurgy is a crapshoot at best, IMHO. If I was in a hurry, I’d use the end of a drill that is snug ( drill rod) and still sleep at night. Grandpa would use a nail and sleep good at night, too.
