Re: Interesting Model T Story

Jeff If there are 4 miles of tunnels, it makes one wonder where do the tunnels lead and under whose house is a tunnel? If they took sand out from under my house why did I not get paid for that, and how far down do my land rights go? What if I drilled a well and hit the tunnel right in the middle? Qu...

Where did Dodge brothers make parts for the Model T

I was looking at Detroit and the Dodge factory. That factory was made for them to make Dodges from what I could tell. If the Dodge Brothers were making parts for Henry to build the Model A, Model B, etc., were they building them in numerous small buildings all over town?

Re: Oily Rusty Paste in Cooling System

Vinegar is diluted glacial acetic acid. Do not use that like Adam states. You could try a mix of isopropyl alcohol and water with your muck and see if that mixes at all. Stir it up in a cup, not in your cooling system. Rubbing alcohol is isopropyl alcohol or ethyl alcohol. The isopropyl might work b...

How do you wait for the weather to warm up in Houston? Normally it is so damn hot and damp I do not understand how anyone could live there. Hopefully tonite I can go for a drive in the snow and make some donuts.

Re: Nov./Dec. Vintage Ford

Got a package on Sunday from USPS, so they must still be backed up. A friend at UPS who was hired for Xmas is now on call. Not the editor's fault. Maybe if you leave a fifth in your mailbox your mail will arrive sooner. It use to work for the garbage man.

Re: Stutzman

Now I just have to figure out how to get paint or sealer under the hub. Is there a way to do it without the wheel coming apart, or do you just leave it?

Re: Stutzman

You have only seen the touring. The speedster comes to Ohio next, with the new wheels. You need to get Hank up there to officiate the race. We can always hunker down in that new shop space you just put up. Better add a bathroom with toilet.

When I first saw this wheel I thought it had cracked. Wrong. Stutzman put this side of the spoke facing inward so if I did just stain the spokes you would not see it. I noticed other spokes were done the same way. The outward facing part of the spoke was always the best looking side.

I drove to Ohio in November to see the Klepingers and to visit Stutzmans. I dropped off 2 wheels and had a short visit with Arlin, Noah's son. They are the only 2 that work there. I asked him to please mail the wheels back to me. I had already taken them apart and cleaned them. I gave him 2 of my ol...

Sometimes you can use google and just include MTFCA or Model T ford in your search. You are not incompetant. You are just learning and re...

Flat rate is a set price for the box provided by the USPS. If you put it in your own cardboard box and ship flat rate it is usually a buck cheaper.

Just got a call from Noah Stutzman

I dropped off two wheels about Nov 19. They are now done and will be shipped soon. Very good turnaround. Metal felloes so he just put in new spokes. $160/wheel.
