Wheel skates...

Ordered these auto dolly's from Merrick, makes it easy moving the T around the garage. I could have gone with the cheapo's from other sources but these are heavy duty and made in the U.S.A. It's also nice to get something with free shipping.

Needing new tires....

Got the new Snyders 2020 the other day and noticed the 21" American classic radials available, wondering if any one here is currently running them on their T. If you are how were they to get on your rim and the overall ride quality, @ some point I have to remove the Sears Allstates :lol: Any input w...

Re: Coil ring sealant

Several years ago I made the mistake of spraying an exhaust manifold and "curing" it in the oven. We went out for dinner on numerous occasions to make up for that one :lol:

Re: Your special T....

While I like this subject, the first entry jarred me into the realization that 1981 was 39 years ago. 39!!!! Yikes, when/ how did that happen?? Let's see, 1981; we were just settling in from a move from my hometown to Oroville for a "temporary" 6 month job that I held for 25 years. Uh oh, it's star...

Your special T....

I like Wayne's license plate thread as a "T" activity and got me thinking with all these vehicles out there what is unique, survived or rare you have found with your vehicle. Sort of a MTFCA automotive memorabilia web show. After cleaning up and going over my fordor when I got it home I noticed the ...

Re: WHAT TO DO WHEN YOU CANT GO GALAVANTING

Hey with most of these Model T's over 100 years old they have been through a lot, seeing the highs and lows we have faced as a nation. A little "T" time in the garage to clear our thoughts for a while will be good. The next several week ends will be working on my 26 as well, hang in there fellas wer...

Re: spindle body braces, need info please.

Thanks for posting that add Dan, it is interesting someone designed this accessory and selling it back in the day for a whopping .68, I will probably keep them on now knowing what they do and avoid the "danger and embarrassment"

I have new upper and lower bushings installed.

spindle body braces, need info please.

Here are several pictures of these attachments on the upper spindle body when I was rebuilding the front axle parts, the last two are off the vehicle with some stamped info.

Was wondering they are and their purpose back in the day, any input would be great. Thanks
