Re: 1917 Model T Ford Race Car Speedster Body

34 posts and all of them are eBay listings not for sale here. I would think the classified section is for what is available to purchase within the MTFCA.

Re: 1918 Model T Ford Coupelet Body Brass Era

This seller always has really valuable and rare items but like Hank I object that these postings on the classifieds are not for sale here but on e-bay. Shouldn't the classified section be for what is available to us and not a link to an auction site? Doesn't the classified mean what can be purchased...

Re: $5 Rigid shop vac!

Ignacio, look into Cimexa dust for bed bugs. Far superior to DE and still cheap. I have been a licensed exterminator for 27 years and while I don't do much bed bug work (by choice) when I do this is what I use.

unique split rim tool

Don't think this went through....folding split rim tool with adjustable sizes with removable U shaped pin. Probably NOS and never appears to have been on a rim. No rust or bends and not the normal gear / crank type. Stamped steel with cast handle. Patent date 1925. Much lighter and cleaner. $100 plu...

4 sale, unique govenor

No fly weights on the fan, no bent up linkage or throttle rods. Excellent aluminum case and everything is tight. The top knob lifts and twists to increase or lower spring tension that controls the butterfly in the intake. Never seen another and looks much better than all those rods and moving parts....

Re: Caution - Rutting season has started

Deer become what is called "crepuscular"" or active at dawn and dusk, some mammals are either nocturnal (active at night) or diurnal (active during the day) . Deer all over the page and crepuscular activity is triggered by many factors such as the breeding season but mostly by the amount of sunlight...

Re: Any ideas about removing a stubborn wheel key?

I would never use heat in this area. If a sharp punch or chisel up the taper won't knock it loose I would drill lots of small holes down into the key that is soft. That will release the bond and let it collapse. No way I would ever heat anything around a rear axle red hot.

Re: New pre 1920 Screwdrivers

If I was to make a guess as to the wood handle I would go with spoke material. It would seem logical that Ford would use what they had lots of scrap on hand.

Re: For Those Who Make Their Own Penetrant...

A short story; last fall I was rear ended in my Blazer at a stop sign after just getting rear ended in my Chevy Silverado at a stop sign by 2 separate idiots on cell phones. I put a hitch in both vehicles so the next one would take out their radiator. The Blazer got the good hitch with the 4" drop (...

Re: Two Piece Lug Nuts on Modern Vehicles

Just went through this doing brakes on my son's jeep 2 weekends ago. Spun the metal caps, chiseled them off, rounded lug nuts. Got off 9 of 10 then was stuck. Torch in the center of the last one and burned the stud and nut out. Luckily didn't burn the wheel with the sunken lug nut. Threw all that ju...

Funny stuff to read here year after year. Dance with the devil and pay the price. There is an obvious conclusion regarding kevlar that has been known for many years. It is "bullet proof" and used for helmets and vests but in a model t transmission not a wise choice. Regardless of adjustment or drivi...

Not really a razor but a razor sharpener. It flips the blade back and forth on each stroke to sharpen both edges.

Re: FJ - How to keep your trailer from being stolen

FJ, I like your target poster and the gun image but everybody does that and criminals have guns also. I had an uncle in Southern CA who owned a sign company and at the front of his ranch he had a sign with an image of a coiled rattle snake and it read "Warning, experimental rattle snake farm".

Re: OT - Ford Tractor (1) old man (0)

Ted, if that was the case to get a new tractor with a safety switch we should all sell our Model T's and get cars with air bags and seat belts! We are a group who likes a previous generation of equipment but along with that comes some risks. This is a good post of what was common and what can happen...

Holy crap Tim that is scary. I plow with the same tractor and blade and am surprised it stalled and didn't just sit and spin or go right over the fence. I also learned that when going backwards on those tractors you have to be sure to keep your feet well inside on the running boards. About a year ag...

Re: Differential oil leak

This doesn't sound right to me if you were able to place a "shim" (?) 1" long between the halves and seal the outside of it. One side has a ridge and the other has a recess and they should fit together tight. From what I read, the halves are not engaged together properly. If this is true one half co...

I am afraid one big bump on a turn or a curb and the axle will fold over to the side.

Re: Race Car Project

I am concerned with your front lowering system as it is like a step ladder with no steps. That is a big drop and even if the welds hold there will be constant stress with each bump and turn. Eventually it may fold over left or right. You could plate or box the lowering bracket in the rear or both fr...
