Re: Drive shaft rust?

Ignacio - you do realize that with that 13 tooth pinion, you have to assemble the driveshaft to the ring gear side of the axle assembly BEFORE you assemble the opposite housing ???? The pinion gear is too large to go through the opening when the halves are bolted together.

Re: Radiator repair--Neck loose

Remove it and get it to a competent radiator shop that is familiar with antique autos for proper re-soldering.

Re: WTB- RH Stop/Tail light 26 coupe

You're welcome !

The Ford accessory lamp is not being reproduced that I'm aware of BUT there is a repro early 1928 Model A drum lamp available from the vendors - it's not exactly like the T light but it's close.

Re: WTB- RH Stop/Tail light 26 coupe

The "drum" lamp is the Ford accessory combination tail/stop - the "can" light came out in '24 or thereabouts.

Re: Tricks from the Past, that work.

Nice repair Hank - you might check out "Belzona" epoxy - I've been using it for years on water jacket cracks & pitted exhaust ports.

NC Machinery/Caterpillar sells it.

Re: You Will Never Know What You May Find in a Model T Engine

That was a freshly rebuilt engine that sat a couple years in his garage - he wanted me to start it for him but I told him "not unless you agree for me to tear it down" - cleaned everything, installed new rings & re-lubed it and it ran perfect !
