Re: Did all ts have generators?

Jonah,
Get your coils set up properly on a HCCT. Your coils are most probably set at too high a current draw and your mag is not generating enough voltage at hand cranking speed at say 60/100 rpm but fires the coils OK at idle and better at speed.....N.

Re: Wanted to Buy, 22 or 23 Coupe

Walt,
There was a 22 or advertised as a 22 coupe in Vaginnia {spelling} about this time last year. A lady was selling her late father's model T. I used to keep watching the sale but have lost contact with the new forum.

Re: Tire pressure, how low can I go?

Alan,
I have 30x3.1/2 oversize Universal tyres on a 1913 Crossley 5 seat touring and I run 90/100 psi to stop the tyres turning on the rims and cutting off the valve stems. I run hard tyres and lubricated springs and have had no problems with ride and or tyres.
Warm Regards...Neil.

Re: What are these holes in the cylinder wall of a Ford Special motor?

Rob, My take is that the four holes in the cylinder bore bleed off the blowby that has past the upper piston rings on the down power stroke. That exhaust gas would be near oil free (just like exhaust gas) and would not make a mess. You would then not need a crankcase breather. Regards....Neil M.

Re: OT Another Electrical Dummy Question

What I learned the first year of my trade(Electrical) 1954. R=e divided by i, P=e times i. Where V or E is voltage, R is the resistance, ohms. i is the current, amps. P is the power in Watts. This will act as my first new forum "Dummy Question" trial reply. Neil.
