Re: 1913 Widetrack Rear Fenders

Looks like I may have found the issue...with Wayne's help. What is the best way to re-adjust these spring clamps to re-position the spring in the right spot?
rear spring appears skewed to the passenger side (to the right), clamp on the left has obviously move since the paint job

Re: 1913 Widetrack Rear Fenders

Thank you for the responses. i have a lot to check out and compare. i don't think the tire was rubbing on the driver's side, but i take a look and get pictures of that side. i does not rub unless there are passengers in the rear seat and you hit a bump. more to come....thanks all for the help so far!

Re: 1913 Widetrack Rear Fenders

Would that be 2in wider than the standard 1913 fender? that might explain it if someone put a replacement standard fender on it.

1913 Widetrack Rear Fenders

Does anyone know if the rear fenders were different on the widetrack model T's? my family has a 1913 widetrack and recently changed the tires on it and the tire is rubbing the rear fender at the outer part on the lower side by the running board. The old tires were slightly different, still 30x3.5, a...

WTB Ford Coils for Rebuild

I am looking for some good core Ford coils to rebuild as spares for my family's Model T's. It would have been nice to pick some up at a swap meet, but, well, we know how that worked out this year! Please PM me if you have some laying around you would like to get rid of.

Thanks,

Re: 1915 Runabout Windshield

thanks to hank lee, i have a set of the correct windshield to body brackets on the way!

Steve Jelf, what kind of rivets are you using to attach the windshield frame pieces to the bracket? I really can't find anything on what to use, and am a novice with riveting.

Thanks,

'17 engine in a '15 car

Still learning the Model T. My '15 engine needs rebuilt so I plan to put a '17 engine in for a while. Are there any issues doing that i should be aware of? I heard the '17 had a higher head. Will that cause any issues connecting to my brass radiator?

Appreciate any experienced input.
