Re: Trolling Craigslist, Brass Model T lamp?

Yep on the T era but nope on the T...E&J furnished brass lamps for the early T s but they were 2 tier chimneys. The lamp in the 1 picture would be correct for an 09-10 EMF.

Re: Headlight rings

But isn’t there a difference in the Ford script used on the brass 1915 and the nickel plated brass runs of 1927 ? If Original Smith saw the smaller script (1927) with the nickel plating buffed off on your 1915..... he wouldn’t like it.

Re: exhaust cutout

Mack, I’ve always heard an exhaust cutout does away with back pressure created by a muffler thereby ridding the engine of exhaust gasses at higher RPMs quicker. It probably has as much HP increase as making a topless roadster’s upper windshield horizontal adds to MPH.

FS: Pat’d Oct 14 1902 Accelerator Gate Valve

....for you HCCA guys. This used a pipe thread to screw onto an intake manifold of a 1910 two cylinder car I bought years ago. And it utilized a Holly NH CARB. I have since acquired the correct carb thus making this lovely piece excess. $85 + USPS small flat rate. gwhouse731(at)gmail.com

Re: Pitman arm fit

I’m more concerned about you having the correct frame-to-steering column bracket. Ford made a half dozen different ones for Ts. What part number is on that bracket?

Re: two man top

Well, a top consists of sockets, bows and fabric. Assuming you only need the latter, the fabric consists of bow covers, padding and top material - usually long grain or copra vinyl. My recommendation is Classitique. Mark provides the entire kit for either touring or roadster. But the best time to ap...

Don’t know the answer to that Tom but I remember that the late and great John Danuser said later 20” Budd wheels can be used on the TT. Many rivets holding the center mounting steel need to be removed and that section scrapped leaving only the 1 piece rim part to be affixed to the wood spokes 20” TT...

Our centerdoor is my wife’s favorite. Think it’s the bud vases. And it’s the ‘peppiest’ T in my collection. Congratulations on your acquisition. Upholstery looks good. You sure you NEED to reword it?

Re: Sitting in our 14

Bud, You called your ‘14 a “survivor” and you also say it “binds up and is very hard to crank”. So nothing I’ve read implies a rebuilt engine (main bearings dialed tightly down on new 4X Babbitt).Norm’s advice on opening the hood and richen the mixture is good. Lifter-to-valve clearance comes to min...
