Re: Crivitz Wisconsin and farther north

Re: High Gear

When I shift from low to high, I do it slowly so I can feel the change. Like Norm says, do not pop it. Once you feel it grab in high, then advance the throttle. The more you drive it the more you will get a feel for your car. Get in another one, and it will be completely different. They are not all ...

Would not a chassis be defined as a complete car that is just missing a body? Frame, axles, wheels, and motor.

Found 3 campgrounds starting at Crivitz, then Iron Mountain, then Houghton. Tent and RV sites, and hot showers. After OCF might be a bit chilly. When do the skeeters die off up there?

Crivitz Wisconsin and farther north

I am thinking of touring up through Crivitz and up to Iron Mountain and the north next summer. Maybe all the way to Copper Harbor. You could join me for a jaunt or tell me what is there to see. Should be a nice Model T drive. my e-mail is dlhort1955@juno.com

They added an inch or two of foam under my seat as well. You would never know it was there and it does make the seat a bit higher. I do not know if memory foam is the best type. I would suggest calling Classtique or going to a local upholstery shop and ask what they would do. I believe you were goin...

Re: Any ideas about removing a stubborn wheel key?

The wheel is suppose to be firmly attached to the axle so they turn together. If they are not attached to each other the axle will spin and the wheel does not move. The key and the nut hold the wheel and axle together so they essentially become one. The nut can loosen and then the axle turns inside ...

The wheel will spin around the axle damaging both the hub and the axle.
