Re: Early top fasteners

I’ll post some great stuff I stole off the interweb. Keep in mind, different folks have different names for some of this stuff, so be careful. There were regional differences, nicknames, etc, it’s a good resource to identify a lot of neat hardware used on our old cars.

Soybean coils, what else?

Most have heard of the manufacture of the soybean based coils in the late teens. Think of the trees saved way back then( if hungry mice wouldn’t have made them impractical) I had a bunch of these NOS wiring blocks,likely made at the same time. This is the only one I saved. What else did FoMoCo make ...

Re: Photos of the 1916 coupelet I just bought.

For the coupelet guys, are these bodies Fisher body built? Rare isn’t used much in the model T world, but these early closed cars are, IMHO. I agree with John, black wheels look beautiful on her.

Re: Hayes Chevy 490 rim / superior K wheel rim

These can be easily modified to work well for a model T. Relocate the valve stem hole and weld the notch closed on the lug. T rims are getting hard to find and that looks like a swell one! Good luck with the sale.

Re: '19 Hays Wire Wheel Stuck on Car

Having owned and used those, they are bear to get off. If not confident using an axle knocker nut,( that’s the easiest and best way ). back the nut off a couple threads and drive around just a short bit. They usually will come unglued. Don’t overdo the driving. I always truly enjoyed installing cott...

Re: Oil Can accessory , Spring loaded holder $45ppd

One oil can on its side leaking is one too many! Spring loaded to eliminate one more rattle. Take care of the environment by installing a nice oil can holder on your car. You will never be without a handy source of lubricating oil, and more apt to oil the things on Lizzie that need oiling, and you w...

I was waiting for the God and Henry remark. If Henry had a decent varnish back in the day, they might would have been that way. Who knows? Back then varnish lasted a season, if that. Now, a good spar urethane can go 20 years or more before a touch up. 999 people out of a 1000 could care less, and pl...

Re: Help Wanted 2 cyl engine identification

Is there a make of the oiler, or might be good to research that. It’ll help pin down where the motor was made, if the oiler appears it’s always been aboard .
