Re: 13T - Fouled plugs

I suppose fouling was a common problem, hence the development of all kinds of accessory gizmos that aid atomization of the fuel. Most of these gadgets look like a steel gasket with a fine mesh of swirling design cut in the center. http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/179374/201228.html?1301424727 8C...

Re: Engine splash pans

“The splash pans & hood are necessary to make a low pressure compartment and the louvers aid, not only as a method to expel the air but their shape also creates an external low pressure area pulling the air out of the engine compartment.”

How does that theory relate to early Ts with no hood louvers?

Re: Heinze coil box loose mounting bracket help

I believe they are attached by screws. If the screws have pulled loose, remove the brackets and glue a coupe of toothpicks in the holes to build up the bite for the screws. It should tighten up and hold fine. It’s a common issue that can be easily fixed.

Molasses will pit some cast iron surfaces, and engine blocks once removed from the molasses were pitted, needing resurfacing. Same with brake rotors, they come out derusted, but with severe pitting. Depends on the makeup of the cast iron I suppose.
