Re: Hood Rods

I have found a real easy way to remover and replace rods. Lubrication and a drill motor. Apply lube. Clamp the end of the rod in the drill motor and slowly spin it. At the same time either pull out or push in to remove or reinstall.

Chris, did you mean a 30x3 1/2 non demountable rear wheel? Unless one has been modified by changing out the hubs, rear non demountable wheels were 30x3 1/2, fronts were 30x3. Dave
Being as I am an absolute no nothing newbie I will agree with you. :-)

Wanted. Usable non demountable rear wheel for my 1921.

I am in need of a usable non demountable rear wheel for my 1921. Improper storage and dry rot killed the one on it.
TIA

Re: My First Model T. 1921 roadster

It is your car, to do how you want it. But very few people today keep or restore Ts back to non-starter, and non-demountable. I would love to know you keep it that way as an example of how many Ts used to be. I am simply going to clean this survivor up and make it safe. Nothing will be added or upg...

Interior wood needed.

I am not having any luck finding replacement wood for my '21 Roadster. The Ohio guys only have the door wood and the Utah folks aren't making anything at this time.

Re: My First Model T. 1921 roadster

I agree with Allan, it might be a bit earlier than a '21. ;) Windshield brackets and front engine mount (front bearing and spring clip) have me wondering. You probably know this but in case, perhaps peruse the online encyclopedia at http://mtfca.com/encyclo/index.htm Much more info is available. I ...

Re: My First Model T. 1921 roadster

If you want to drive your T pretty much like it is it would be a good idea to get new battery cables and all new wiring. My car has no battery, starter, or generator. Next buy the fun projects coil box kit and rebuild your coil box. The coil box is in pretty good condition It’s pretty easy rewiring...

Re: My First Model T. 1921 roadster

I am a bit confused by your comment that the car needs all new wiring, but you don't want anything that looks new on the car. I would install a new harness. It's a lot less work and cheaper then redoing the car after a fire. The very first thing that I did on my T was to replace the harness. You al...

Re: My First Model T. 1921 roadster

I would ask if it has a round or oval gas tank in it. The original tank would be oval but they would get replaced at times with the earlier round tank. Neat! It is oval. I believe that this car has been sitting since before WWII. No proof, its just that things are in pretty good condition. Red inne...

Re: My First Model T. 1921 roadster

Chris, it may be a little earlier than 21. By then, on our Canadian sourced cars, the square wooden felloe wheels were long gone, as was the crank handle with the cast iron sleeve. Our 1919 models all came with starters ans generators as soon as they were available. The windscreen sidelight mounts ...

Re: My First Model T. 1921 roadster

Norm, North Hills is the the new name for the former Sepulveda, former Mission Acres. I don't know where they got the name, because it's in the Valley, between Van Nuys and San Fernando. I don't recall seeing any hills there. :) If you go South on Woodley between Lassen and Plummer you will see the...

My First Model T. 1921 roadster

The car interior burned decades ago. It had been in indoor storage. But 3 or 4 years ago a young man bought with the intention of building a street rod. Thankfully he didn't. What he did do is store it outside in the dirt under a walnut tree. Needless to say every square inch of the car was stuffed ...
