Re: Model T Ford 1909-1912 Brass Bulb Horn Complete

Looks like a 1914 type horn, it looks nice but IMHO about 300 to much.

Re: Rear axle and drive shaft rebuild

When I did one of mine Mr. Regan told me to go with the non-adjustable set up, which I did. What I’ve experienced with the original Ford set up had me dreading the rebuild. I’m not saying the rebuild was simple but it was easier. I’m voting for the non adjustable too.

Re: Has anyone tried these tires?

That’s almost 194.00 USA per tyre. Add shipping on that and it’d be pretty expensive for a set of 5.

Re: Is my model T seized up?

Carson I can’t explain in words how wonderful it is to see your post. Many of us ole timers worry about our hobby and the love affair that we have with our model Ts. We need more young folks to have that same enthusiasm that you have to keep it going. I’m also impressed that you took it on yourself ...

Dog days

I’ve been recovering from some much needed surgery and was able to take a few trips to relax with my best friend. He really enjoys riding and exploring. If he’s around and I’m going for a drive in the T he’ll drop whatever he’s doing and ride along. He hops right in. He just loves it and his smile i...

I believe he may have the wrong size advance rod or not contoured to the appropriate bends for the commentator to be correctly retarded. Jelf’s video on timing is a simple & great example to follow when setting the timing and crank placement. Hopefully it will be that simple. Tony great job of triag...

Re: WTB: The Missing Water Valve This Carbide Generator

George that looks like a JB, could tell if I saw the base. I have a valve I can let you use to make one. It’s pretty simple. I think Mike Lebsack reproduces some generators but can’t be certain. He may have one already done.

Re: Running poorly.

You don’t have to do the pistons but if you did you’ll have to see what the bore is on each cylinder. That will tell you what you’ll need. To do that you’ll have to send it to a builder. Your still going to have to remove the engine because you’ll have to replace the lifters along with the valves. Y...

Re: Running poorly.

Ignacio, I think the coils might be a problem but I’m betting on your valves. Do a compression test to see if that’s the major issue. Remember you’re still running those old two piece valves. While your have it down you might want to go with aluminum pistons. It’s time you should replace the valves ...
