Re: 1927 Coupe Gas Cap

Most likely an accessory "quick" open cap - the original is threaded so remove the remainder of that one & install an original style available at the vendors.

Re: Mirror

Bill Bohlen (Antique Motor Sports, I believe) produces a real nice mirror that bolts to the windshield hinge - brass or black.

Re: 1912 Touring on HCCA Classifieds

Appears in quite original condition other than added demountable rims & perhaps a battery box on running board - might also have added engine compartment venting through both side of the hood ?

Re: Adding alternator to 1917 T

This is one of T.T.P.'s kits - simple install - although I replaced the "hokey" belt adjuster !

Re: "EE" Crankshaft

Metal properties - EE cranks are marked either in the casting between the throws and/or stamped into the snout. Been known to be a superior crank compared to the earlier "diamond" throw crankshafts.

I have several installed on 3 of our T's - straight up - no padding - just occasional verification that all is still snug.

Re: Spare tire attachment

If the tire is a "modern" replacement, it's most likely an "oversize" tire resulting in a taller profile which would throw the original rim hold down geometry out of the window !

Do yourself a favor and ditch the "the ball bearing the float pushes up against" - Grose jets are notorious for sticking closed !
