Just a few more ads. It sounds like it came with its own heavy duty hubcap.

Re: Accessory: Bayne B-B Auto Power Pulley

hub plate from a wooden spoke t wheel Good idea, Andrew. Be sure to post some pics. Like I mentioned above, I don't think using it will do a differential any favors, as the spider gears are having to constantly spin, but I do wonder if a light load for a short run would be fine. I'd be interested i...

Interesting photos of other pulleys. http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/179374/209649.html Hopefully someone will post photos (and dimensions ;) ) of an original adaptor. I have a pulley but no adaptor and, probably like you, would love to have one. I would think the hubcap wouldn't work that well...

Re: Accessory: Bayne Bushnell Auto Power Pulley

How does it attach to the hub? I'm assuming we are missing a piece. This does a pretty good job of describing the adaptor flange. I've seen a couple of the pulleys but never the adaptor flange. Patent https://patentimages.storage.googleapis.com/a5/d6/c6/8847087f97e8dc/US1262003.pdf bayne.JPG

It appears your spark ring might be grounded to the frame via the two mounting bolts. That needs to be isolated electrically, preferably by standoffs that don'...

Yeah my mistake, the "bill" in the front is on 1915 fenders. But interestingly the last of the 1914's and early 15's (which this car is) had the bill as well. There is a photo on page 180.
Yes, but I think the late '14 billed fenders still had 4 heads instead of 1915's 3.

Re: Mag Voltage vs RPM - 1911 t

The presence of loose/intermittent wire/terminal/connection is always a possibility too that might not be easily detected via voltage measurements. For sure. It's not going to run well on mag if there's a problem in the mag-to-coil box wiring or switch. Sometimes it's the simple thing that will cau...

Re: Mag Voltage vs RPM - 1911 t

fbergksi, I'm kind of surprised no one else has mentioned it, but those voltages don't look that bad imho if they are that good once you apply a load (like an 1156 bulb). I don't think I saw any loaded voltage results above, but I could have missed it. If you get similar voltages once you test with ...

Re: Fordson Assistance

George's photo shows the version of control rod that is dropped down along the head. The higher version has that rod up even with the head bolt heads (no drop). I'm not familiar with the radiator bolt leak problem, but I know what you mean. Perhaps some silicone smeared on the bolt threads?

Also, yes, 30 weight is fine. Rear end oil needs to be yellow metal compatible due to the worm wheel. Amazon has 5 gallon buckets of Mobil 600W Super Cylinder Oil for about $140 shipped.

Re: Spare Tire Carrier Bolt Sizes, Mounting?

Dan, thanks for these two photos. It clears up a question I've had for awhile. Most people are missing the clamp piece and they just align a lug to the hole on the frame and bolt through it. I've looked at factory photographs to see what was right but I hadn't seen what I was looking for.

Well, “best laid plans,” I guess. Time to order this online. I’ve been looking forward to reading it about as much as going to Chickasha, so I guess at least I’ll get to do one of the two this year.

Hmm, come to think of it, I'm not sure I can do that yet with the museum closed temporarily.

Please hold a few for those us who have planned to buy it at Chickasha like the above article says. It's probably not too late to get more made, either. Thanks.
