A little shot of starting fluid in the carb, then crank should tell you if it's a spark or fuel problem. If the spark is good It will fire for about 2 seconds. Careful, only a 1-2 second shot of starting fluid.... a little goes a long way. If it doesn't fire the ignition probably needs some help.

Re: Can anyone recommend a nickel plater in Michigan

I was going to mention Craig.... but he's already been brought up. He only deals with antique / classic car plating, so they know how important it is to retain imprinted logos, numbers etc. He'll be at Hershey I believe the spots are CY26-28 (I go with him… ya think I'd remember), you could save shi...

Re: Ford Motor neon Porcelain sign

This spring I went to an auction just up the road from me. The guy had an extensive collection of restored Ford tractors with all of the tools, gasket boards etc. He had two of these signs and they sold in the $9,000 - $10,000 range.

Re: Model T club meeting entertainment ideas

We haven’t Done it for awhile, but we used to get old model T related movies from the library, Laurel and Hardy type movies to close our meetings with. They were short and fun to watch.

Re: AC brakes and richard Baughmans setup

What year is the speedster you are building? Axle housings are plentiful and inexpensive (I've seen a lot of FREE ones). How about using the guts from your 26-27 rear and getting 25 and earlier housings. That will get you the small drums you need for your brakes.

Re: Drain antifreeze and replace with distilled water for summer?

So...… is using distilled water straight the problem? Is it OK to use if you are adding anti-freeze? My uncle, who worked in the water treatment plant for Campbell Soups knew all the water chemical stuff. He always said to never use water from a dehumidifier, it was to acidic. The same theory as dis...

Re: Anyone driving to Homecoming from Michigan?

The "T" club in Toledo has a meeting next Wednesday, I'll bring it up to see if anyone wants to go on a road trip! Bob sure would be surprised the places his old T has seen the last coupe of years..... Don't you have Bob Barkers phone number? I think he drove his A down there a couple years ago.

Re: Engine rebuild needed.

Another vote for Joe Bell..... Here's what you do. Get in touch with Tim Morsher as he has a panel truck he's getting brought up from Ft Meyers to pretty close to Joe in Ohio in the next couple weeks. You would probably have to meet someone close to I-75 on their way north (or what ever way they're ...

Kennedy Space Center isn’t too far away. Between there and the Space Museum which you used to get in free with your ticket from Kennedy S. C. I spent a day and a half there.

Ultrasonic vs Vibratory Cleaner

Thinking of getting one or the other. Which one do you find most useful? What are both best used for? What media do you use? Since my use would be limited , how do the Harbor Freight units hold up for hobby use? Thanks, Dave
