Re: What have you done to your T in September?

Steve,
I am happy to see you started the rebuild of your coil ring.
Just keep in mind: "It was broken, you can't brake it harder just make it work again".
Take your time and do it easy one step at the time.

Good luck.

Johan,
To grade up the brakes on my 1926 Touring I used the brake Equalizer T-2565-X and new brake lining T-2566-D.
This works great for me also when it is wet. This set up use the original hand brake parts and isn't that expensive.

I use two 12V and two 6V battery (that is all I have in stock) in serial they give me 36V. What is impor...

If yours have some insulation gone or coils that seems to be out of working you only have the chioce between replace it or rebuild it.

The firewall and the water outlet are just for test running the engine. Normally I test run the engines on a special build stand but here, as it is mine, I build the engine directly in the frame.
