Re: Haven’t posted progress in a while

My basement is a gathering of sub-assemblies. I also have both front seat platforms, the cowl former, windshield header and a kit for the roof rails/bows. At least one other piece will need to be made and that’s the rear seat stringer. I may also need to rework the front header as it has a significa...

Re: What have you done to your Model T in January?

Rebuilding the wooden structure of my 22 center door sedan in my basement.

When it warms up, I'll start building it on its frame outside. (Still have to pick that up)

Re: Question on babbitting

I’m not wanting to do it for a living. I just want to be able to fix mine. I’m only 52 years old; I’ve owned my T since I was 29. I’ve worked on everything from a Model T to steam locomotives, so I’m not entirely stupid.

But make no mistake, I’m just wanting to add to my knowledge set.

Question on babbitting

Some day I hope to get someone to teach me how to Babbitt my own engine, as I would like to learn before I die. Anyway, I'm perusing the Service manual, the service bulletins and the KR Wilson catalog, and all three state that heating the block before pouring the Babbitt is not necessary. The servic...

Reading some of the complaints on line, it sounds like another story on the dad started the business and had a steller reputation and then the son took over and it went down hill from there.
That business you refer to had TWO sons who could not meet eye to eye and the business suffered.

1909 in Hemmings

There is a 1909 for sale on the Hemmings website.

One of the pictures in the add shows a two pedal/two lever set-up.

However the actual car for sale has three pedals and one lever.

Whoops.

Re: 23 Roadster needs wood repair: Any suggestions?

The 24-25 tourings have a steel pillar on the RH side. I bought one from someone on the forum 10 years ago and wound up not using it, and just opted for wood when I rewooded my car.

Original pair of rear sill covers. Pitted but salvageable. I would like $10 plus shipping CONUS to you. I will not have a way to ship these until late next week. I am taking a train to pick up a car I will be gone for a few days. I can get you a quote when I return and we can finalize the deal

Re: Leon Parker's rewooding plans

I am very good at organization and reprinting and cataloging, but the pricing would have to be insanely cheap and that would not be fair. Unless arrangement could be made to make payments to her in kind so she could benefit from the sale of the plans as well.

Don,

Will you be retrofitting a gas tank to go under the rear seat, or take the easy way and put it under the driver's seat? In 1915, it was under the rear.
