Re: Transporting new ‘27 chassis home

If the crankcase is connected to the frame, it would appear that all you have to do is support the torque tube and then put it on the trailer. Block the wheels on the trailer and drive slow. Then you can work on the car to your hearts content.

Re: Today's Social Distancing Video

At first it sounded like your muffler broke loose and was dragging on the road. Maybe a hubcap came off. Sounds like you lost something.

Some people I know do not even use a muffler. Model T's are not that loud.

Re: Muffler installation

I had mine clamped down and the muffler bracket broke. Dallas Landers helped me remove the broken bracket. Then we installed a muffler hanger (rubber type product) that gave it some flexibility. Maybe that and a clamp will work for you. The whole assembly requires some sort of flexibility since the ...

Here is a round barn we have in Wisconsin. It is really octagonal I think.

Isn't there a huge round barn on Route 66 in Oklahoma?

I bet if you drove your Model T up the driveway and asked them if you could get a picture next to the barn they would not say no.

Anton. Please send us pictures with a tape measure across the wheel. What you have is a mystery. Perhaps the wheels were made in Argentina to replace the originals and there are no replacements. Danke Schön.

Re: Airconditioning in Model T?

I have driven my Speedster in 100 degree heat and you barely notice it is hot until you stop. With my touring I put the top up to keep the sun off, and heat comes up through the floor from the exhaust, and it is not too bad. You can have that Florida heat and humidity. Almost as bad as Texas. I will...

If you google.maps Racine, WI you can see where Walker mfg used to be. Go to the Pugh Marina and look north, west of the Racine yacht club, and you will see all the squares of concrete where the factory was located.

Here is what mine looks like on my speedster. Just installed it. Holds a 23 inch clincher.
On your touring it will not stick out so much. Wire wheels or wood wheels?

Enough info to tell you you need a tracker in your trailer, maybe one in the car, and some type of anti-theft device built in to the trailer hitch. Might have saved a lot of anguish.

This is the support I have in my 1920 touring to hold the seat up.

Here is the lack of support in a friends 1919 touring.

Was there a change? Different manufacturer of body? Why does the 1920 have a support and the 1919 does not?
