FS: Mae West Restored Rear Shackle...

.....I found 3 of these in my stash years ago when I began restoring the ‘14 runabout with incorrect shackles. So I had a friend weld up the shafts and machine them to 0.56” for a slip on bushing fit. Oil holes redrilled and 1/8” PT Oiler threads tapped. Guaranteed as presented. $40 + the ride. Geor...

Re: Texas Hill Country-magneto/flywheel gap gauge

Rob, you can use a dial indicator too. I’ve made a ‘transmission lift’ tool you can use. It’s essentially 3 chain lengths connected with a ring on the lift end and hooks for the flywheel end. When the engine is vertical-nose down- it makes it easier to lift the tranny numerous times

Re: 1909 Brush and Klep's garage

Definitely a flatearth car. Love the sound of that 1 cylinder exhaust! Reminds me of when I pushed a’09 Brush through about a dozen switchbacks up Pikes Peak in the 1976 Glidden Tour. Was only 26 years old then. I’d sure like to add one to my collection of little runabouts.

Re: FS: Totally Cute Solid Brass Engine Head Water Pimp

As an answer to many questions - yes, it IS for Model T s. The two bolt holes are same as T head water outlet bolt holes so pump pulley is perfectly above fan pulley. So a longer fan belt will be required to run all 3 pullies. The impeller is located where the hotter coolant gets ‘pushed’ to the upp...

Re: Post a photo of your antique Model T License Plate

Most Texas license plate collectors will swear that 1924 is the first full size Texas plate with the year on it. I have original small size Texas plates dated 1921 and 1922. But also have this rare 1923 set (rare because state issued to owners weren’t dated) The Key is the first letter ‘D’ for dealer.
