Re: Speedster to Coup conversion

I would like to eventually return the car to its original form, a coup. When my dad had it "restored" he expected it to be the coup he bought in 1938. Over the years while stored covered up outside, the body and glass was shot up, and it continued to rust. For that reason Dad was told it was beyond ...

Re: For Sale: A Really Nice Polished Brass Monocle Windshield w/ New Glass. Great for Speedsters, Racers, etc

How would you modify the mounting bracket to fit a Model T? I have a 1925 T Speedster and Monocle would look good. Just not sure how to modify the bracket to fit the steering column of the T.
Thanks,
Rick

Speedster to Coup conversion

Greetings to all, I have a question about converting/ restoring a Speedster to a coup, Let me explain; In 1938 my dad bought his first car, a 1925 Coup, and drove it to high school. At some point he quit driving it and it sat outside but covered for many years. In the mid '80's my dad wanted to rest...

Re: Coils not working

Mr. Hand, when I ground the wire to firewall does the other end of wire connect to point where connection goes thru firewall directly from each coil starting with coil #1?
Thank you.

Re: Coils not working

The #1 coil does not buzz....all others seem to be working in order. Can I put standard motor oil in the timer or should I put a specific weight or type in it. Does detergent or non-detergent oil need to be used? The fuel tank is not varnished, although it could be in the carb. Or fuel line. I have ...

Re: Coils not working

Yes, I am close to Detroit. There must be a lot of "T" owners in the area. I really do need to join one of the clubs. The Casual T's seemed to be the club to join in my area.

Re: Coils not working

I turned the hand crank, and all coils seemed to fire in sequence except coil #1 which did not buzz even after being pushed down to make sure it was tight in coil box. I did not reposition the coils to determine if another coil would buzz in that #1 position. I will try that later today. The timer h...

Re: Coils not working

Thank you for your input, and I didn't know the crank had to be turned 360 degrees but that makes perfect sense. Once I've cleaned and greased or oiled the timer, do I need a centering tool to replace the cover? Does the pin on the timer simply slide out with a pair of pliers? After reading about th...

Coils not working

I recently attempted to start my 1925 Model T after about 3 years of sitting. Only one coil buzzes, the other three (3) do not. What can I do to get the coils working again? Coils are original Ford wood coils. Can I sand the points with emery board to freshen the points or will I need to send them i...
