Andrew, you better go over that route again. I think you lost your back seat. :)

Have a great time with that car.

Re: New to Forum and Model Ts

Lisa Sounds like Hap would like you to put together a trip from California to Richmond. 2028 is only 8 years away. Lincoln Highway will get you there if you have a speedster. Dave Coleman drove Nathan's speedster across the country on the Lincoln Highway and his passenger wrote a book about it. Migh...

I had a claim with Hagerty last summer that was considered 100% my fault. Only $700. My premium did not change. I will stay right where I am.

Upper Michigan is closed for the season - Covered Bridge?

I was hoping to make a trip all the way to the top of the UP in September. I called the museum in Iron Mountain and they are already closed for the year. They plan to open in 2021. I will assume all the other museums are closed as well. Next year. We did a tour yesterday in eastern Wisconsin and dis...

Re: Nice day for a ride!

Dallas. Recognize that car on the end? And the driver next to it?

It was a great day. Ice cream and cheese curds. Drive a little and stop for pizza. Drive some more and ice cream again. Made it home before the sun went down. 12 hour day 8AM-8PM.

Sorry, no Amish buggies.

Re: 26/27 Spare Wire Wheel Locking

I just used a padlock with a longer shaft so it goes around a spoke. Like Dan showed, if you just hang a padlock on the nut it does not look like you can turn the nut. Give it a try and let us know.

Re: 3-speed transmission questions

Never had the pleasure of hearing the razor strap or the belt tearing through the belt loops. I am sure I felt the jolt of leather on my backside, but then my big sister taught me how to laugh when it smacks. After that, just seeing the belt in his hands was enough.

Re: 26/27 Spare Wire Wheel Locking

The ford lock probably only works on the demountable rims in the Y shaped carrier. If youhave wire wheels you could trade the wheels and hubs to someone whohas wood wheels, and thenget the Y carrier and Ford lock to work.

Correct me if I am wrong, but I understand there is no gasket between the 4th main and #2576. Maybe in earlier cars it is used.

I have the lug on the bottom and I attach a master lock through the lug and around the spoke. I have also taped the lock with electricians tape to protect the paint on the spoke. It works so far.

I agree with you Don. I have more issues backing up. The bows are so high I do not see that little car parked behind me. No problem stopping with the cars in front of me, at least the ones that know how to drive.

You live in Detroit. There has to be a bunch of guys close to you who could come over and give you a second opinion. I would reach out and ask for help before I pulled the hogshead again. But then, you might have done that already.
