Oil Filters

Not T related but wondering what people know. Back story - When I drove Audis I always used Mann filters because they were strong, did a good job of filtering the oil and hadn’t the correct pressure drain back valve in them. I now have a Chebby 4X4 with a 5.3 motor with active fuel management that i...

Re: ‘Matching Numbers’ Add any Monetary Value to a Model T?

The numbers on the motor of my 19 match the original registration for the car. In fact they match all the registrations I have from 1919 to today. The only thing that is different is the owner's name, air in the tires, gas in the tank, and oil in the motor. I think I can find the original oil if I g...

Re: Exhaust Nut Wrench

I got a large Harbor Freight (24 inch) adjustable wrench with a 20% off coupon a few years ago.
It is tight but fully open it fits the exhaust nut.
If the nut is rusty I use a flat file to clean it up before using the wrench.

Ken,
I got a replacement motor for my 19 from Bill Thompson.
He should be able to help.
He lives in Sudbury and I believe he works at Clematis Machine shop in Waltham.
He last logged onto the old site on Dec 31 -
If you do a search on his name, town, and MTFCA you may be able to send him an email.

My T leaked a lot of oil from the seam along the front of the hog's head and pan.
Since I am lazy and the oil is not under pressure, I cleaned the seam with carb cleaner and rubber black silicon into the seam.
