Interesting. If I type in Steve, Steve Jelf is the second Steve that comes up. It appears that it searches by which Steve posted last. Since Steve posts almost every day, he comes up right away. If you do not post very often, you will be at the bottom of the list unless we know your last name. Have ...

Re: What have you done to your Model T in February?

In a couple weeks it might get up to 40, so I will have to go for a run. Roads are dry right now and not much salt on them. 4-6 inches of white stuff coming tomorrow.

A Model T does not really need a muffler. Just lengthen the tail pipe.

Re: Join or Renew

Stan and Mark, I believe you have to go to your profile and put your MTFCA number in the correct field. Once that field is filled in your handle will show up in BOLD print. Many members did not have their number handy when they first signed up, so until they update it they will show up as plain print.

Re: Wanted 26-27 wire wheel hub puller

I can't pull a picture over. I modified a Pittman Arm Puller and it works great. They come in 2 sizes and you need the larger one. You will need to grind off about 1/4 inch of the fingers so it will fit on the hub. Don't think you will find a Model T puller. You would have better luck finding a 2 ca...

Richard. Large print means you are shouting. It is also harder to read. You have a valid reason for using large printing due to your eyesight. Thank you for telling us why. Continue to do what you are doing.

Hopefully this works. Here is one of the early 1900 racers on the Milwaukee Mile, summer of 2019.

? re new pinion bearing

The instructions state to grind down the woodruff key so the top is only 3/4 inch long. This also removes a chunk of the key that fits in the slot in the drive shaft. This is so the key does not rub on the face of the bearing itself. IMG_20191230_161631743.jpg IMG_20191224_160526494.jpg It would app...

I would purchase new points and ask the club to help you redo your coils, or send them to Ron Patterson or Brent Mize. Remember to include a note that the coils have new capacitors. Do you know which capacitors were installed?
