How do I "correctly" tighten a new top?

Hello fellow Model T-ers,

I just had my radiator repaired and flushed. I'm starting anew. I ordered a quart of water-soluble oil from Amazon. Can any of you tell me how much of it I need to put in my refreshed Model T radiator along with the garden hose water?

Thank you in advance.
Steven

I Found My Used Enclosed Trailer.

- Hello Fellow Model T-ers, I found one on Christmas Day. A 1999 aluminum 8x19 Pace Auto Hauler. It was unexpectedly difficult to find any suitable enclosed trailer (new or used) here in California.

Looking to Buy a Used Enclosed Trailer

Hello Fellow Model T-ers,

Would any of you know of an enclosed trailer in decent condition that might be for sale in California, Nevada, or Arizona? I can get by with interior dimensions of 7'x12', (it's to store a speedster), but larger will be OK.

If anyone out there has (or may know where one is) a "working" brass dash clock I sure would like one for my new 1912 speedster. I know about Ebay.

I found Royce and he is a really swell guy. Because of his expert advice I now have a beautiful period correct brass ended speedometer cable and its housing on its way to my 15 Touring. No more insults from Original Smith, at least surrounding this part of my car.

I went with the "Romona T.B." temporary-permanent fix. High temp gasket silicone. So far it's not leaking. I will fill the oil pan up to the upper petcock until such time I need to pull the engine for other reasons. Thank you all for your generous guidance.
