Re: Why do I keep wearing tires out?

I would guess it is a tow in-out, problem, your car is probably heaver on the driver side causing it to track better causing the other tire to do most of the skidding. Jack the tires off the ground and mark them while spinning them, this will give you a true alignment line regardless of wobble. Set ...

Re: Wheel bearing problem

You can set Loc-tite by heating it. I have used it on crusher shafts with .063 slop with great success. You could do as Hank suggested, you may have to put a small amount of sealer on the back side of the bearing so the Loc-tite won't leak out before you can heat it up. Heat it up to about 200 deg. ...

Re: Model A motor into a T?

Dave, you do remember that I broke down. I twisted off an axle. It was mostly because it was a bad axle. Please take lots of photos of your build and share. The big drum brakes work well, adding rocky mountains is a great move.

Re: trailer design

Craig, probably a 50/50 spacing would work well. If you find the balance point of your model T, it would probably help you make your decision. You already know what happens when you don't have enough tongue weight. Two jacks would probably answer your questions. I think a light weight trailer would ...

Re: Post Your 4th T Pictures

I watched the fireworks last night overlooking the Las Vegas Valley. I was amazed and very impressed and proud to see how many people were showing how patriotism. Never in my life have I seen so many fireworks at one time, and I grew up here. We did have a breakfast run.

Re: When nobody worried about scratching their T

Interesting to see people hauling the lumber under the car. At 16 just after getting my drivers license in 19 and 72, I went to the steel yard to pick up 100' of 1-1/4 .095 tubing for a Corvair sandrail that I was building. Dad told me how to do this and let me borrow his 1963 Mercury station wagon....

Re: Instead of pouring Babbitt...

Something that I wanted to add this post is, Most everyone that has had a model t engine apart will find that the rear main ( next to the flywheel) will have crap embedded into it. If you wonder why it, is usually the only one with the crap embedded in it, It is because it gets half of its oil from ...

Re: Oillevel in Oilpan

The only thing that the pan may be good for is a wheely clown car. Like said it will retain way too much oil. You would be lucky if it would run much more than an idle because of the crankshaft running in oil. Many problems will arise. Billy, the horse shoe/s are the u shaped metal pieces that the i...
