Re: 13/32x16 Taps

So, why would you need this tap? I've rebuilt many T rear ends and I've never seen the spool bolt threads messed up on the differential, not to say there's not a rear end somewhere with messed up spool bolt threads. Perhaps, I've just been lucky.

Re: WTB 23-25 body

Can't put a 26/27 body on a 25 or earlier chassis. On the 26/27, the rear cross member is several inches wider to accommodate the wider 26/27 body and the 26/27 uses a completely different front fender brackets that mate to mount points on the frame that are unlike all previous years.

Re: Stevens Front Axle Tooling FS

So why to they need to be tapered? Today, they make Heli-coil taps and inserts that work great and ensure center at the bottom and for the top you can simply drill it out on a vertical mill an press in a bushing of the correct ID diameter of the kingpin bolt. I've seen this done many times with out ...

Re: Wood to wire wheel adapter

They also appear to be for the front. The rears are missing. I suspect someone must have used 26/27 hubs on the front and used the adapters on the rear, otherwise out of the set of 4 it makes no sense to have used just the rears.

Re: Bendix

This might be a Model A bendix. At first glance, they both look were very similar until you place them side-by-side.

To me, the collar is not as wide as Allan pointed out and of a larger diameter than the T, which is more in line with an A if I remember correctly.

Re: 6 volt battery dilemma

Let's face facts, the model T third-brush generator is the primary killer of the 6 volt lead acid battery in the T due to overcharging. When the engine is running the generator is outputting current to the battery whether it needs charging or not. I (and others) run our generators (that still have a...

Re: McLaren Wires and Universal T Drivers --- Years of Tire Trouble

Scottio, Just for the record, the Ford 21 inch wood spoke split rim and the wire wheels (first appearing in 1925) were not clincher style tires. These 21 inch tires, called "balloon tires" back then had a max PSI of 35. I run 30-32 PSI on my 27 Tudor. These are the same tires used on the 1928/29 Mod...

Re: 1915 fan bracket curve up or down?

Robert,

Keep in mind that the diameter of fan hub and the crank belt pulleys were different between 1915 and 1927, so if using a 1915 fan hub with 1927 crank pulley it will more than likely result in a nonstandard belt sizing.

It seems that the Words "Rebuilt" or "Remanufactured" Have Different Connotation to some folk!!!

The below link to a Model T engine on ebay is advertised as being “rebuilt,” but by my standards (and many others) this is not clearly not a rebuilt short block. Whomever buys this engine with the understanding that it was “rebuilt” will be greatly disappointed. At best, this might fall into the cat...

Overhead Cylinder Head Repro

Some years ago a guy was reproducing an overhead valve head, does anyone know who this guy is? He also made a dual overhead cam model T head too that I saw running at the 100th anniversary in Indiana.

Re: '27 Radiator Apron

To locate the hole, buy some Persian blue from the auto parts store. Smear some on surface of 1/4-20 hole on the engine mount and then fit the upon. The Persian blue will transfer to the apron marking where the hole should be drilled.
