Noisy Generator Gear... I think....

Hey Guys! So for 3 years I've lived with a ting ting ting ting ting coming from the front of the engine. The noise has continued after a recent Texas T Distributor removal and E timer installation. I used to blame it on the distributor bouncing around up front, but alas that is not it. Took the fan ...

Re: Spokane National Tour Postponed to 2021

Thank you Dhort. My nursing career is now 12 days on, 2 days off. This virus is no joke and I will follow science before politics or media. When our old cars were new, death and suffering were at home or small hospitals. It was in your face and not hidden. You saw people (adults and children) suffer...

Re: New T Help Needed

Also, if your son wants a Texas T (still VW) dizzy to try let me know. It even has an electronic ignition. He can have it, as long as he doesn't sell it. If he doesn't want it, just pass it on.

Two three one four nine nine six two five eight

Thanks,
George

Re: New T Help Needed

I too have a 26 Tudor (and live in Michigan but that is not really relevant, but a fun fact nonetheless). When I got my Tudor 3 years ago it had a dizzy and a rebuilt motor. The mag was not reinstalled during the rebuild. Two weeks ago I removed the dizzy and went back to (rebuilt coils) and timer. ...

Re: COVID restriction and your Model T

In Michigan we are still allowed to recreate while social distancing. Today I took the T to the bike trail, because I had to get there somehow. I'm also a nurse, so my T has become my daily driver...70 miles round trip. I figure if I have to report, it's the perfect excuse to do so in style!

Re: Michigan UP Tour Idea

A couple years ago we did a solo trip to the UP in our 1926 Tudor the end of October. We rented a cabin in Mackinaw City and drove across the Mackinaw Bidge (for those not familiar with MI, this is the bridge that connects our state's two peninsulas). We drove over to Detour Village and then crossed...

Re: BRAKE EQUALIZER

Good call Andre! I forgot, but I too had to do a bit of grinding on the EZ adjuster. Nothing difficult, just burned a few minutes.

Re: BRAKE EQUALIZER

I put one on my 26 Tudor this spring and have been very satisfied with it. It took a while to get the equalizer set up to apply the brakes in conjunction with the transmission brake, but nothing too bad. I also have good linings on my brakes ( replaced those a year ago). In full disclosure I've only...

Re: Tire chains on my Roadster

I paid $40 for my good usable set of tires chains for 21 inch balloon tires. They were in the original canvas bags.... which certainly weren't display pieces! However, the chains work great! :D
