Road trip in a 14

I'm planning a trip in a Model T from San Joaquin County, California, up through Sacramento County and Oroville, ultimately via Hwy 70 through Feather River Canyon into Plumas County (Crescent Mills, Greenville/Lake Almanor). Then after some sightseeing going around Lake Almanor to Chester and Senec...

Re: Identify this event please

Let's see if I can still do this.

Mark -
The rear curtain in the top on that 1917-style car is the three-light type, too.

I wish I remembered how to post pictures, I'd post some 1915ish Hupmobiles. You'd think after the hundreds of photos I posted here years ago I'd remember... :roll:

Re: Identify this event please

I think the pilot car is a Hupmobile. I can't tell what is behind it, maybe another Hup. The first two cars in the line appear to me to be 1915 - '16 tourings. The third car, #21, is not a Ford; the driver's door is open. The rest, from 22 back, look like Fords. Interestingly, all the Fords and the ...

Re: Buffalo Wire Wheels - New and Rebuilt

It looks sort of like an hourglass. One end is right-hand thread, the other is LHT for the other side. At the neck of the hourglass shape there is a tapped hole with a pushing bolt pointing at either the RHT or the LHT, depending which side hub you are pulling.

Re: Buffalo Wire Wheels - New and Rebuilt

I can vouch for the quality of Kevin's wheels; I bought a set of 5 and they are flawless. Works of art. I had mine done in gloss black powder coat and had the Buffalo hex-caps polished and nickel plated - they're perfect.

Re: Why won't T start but runs.

Whenever I've had a car that wouldn't start with the starter but would start after pushing or pulling a couple of feet, the condenser was bad.

Try this for good Stanley sights and sounds. It's from England and isn't cluttered up with dialogue. Several good hill climbing scenes.

Did you have to butter the sides of your rig to get it off the ferry and around the little roads to the airport?? I'll tell you, the basement would have been great with me, too. You probably got it during your winter visit because it stays warm; I got the 3rd floor in warm weather to catch the sea b...

We drove it around the island most of the day Monday and it behaved perfectly. The pilot was strong and blue all day without fussing and the main fire was clear and not smoky or stinky. It made wads of steam and had loads of power on the hills, even with a nearly full car. It seemed not to care if t...

10 hp car? Those are really good looking.
But unfortunately I will be tapped out for a long time to come.

Re: Start-up problems after lay-off.

I think if the vacuum tank is empty and is not remaining full and has to be re-primed, two things to check; first check that the line from the manifold to the vacuum tank is actually supplying a strong enough vacuum. If the vacuum tank is full of gas (about a quart), the engine will run for a while ...

are you sure the engine he's looking for has a head? I have a Series 16 (1916 model year) four cylinder engine, but it had the head integral with the block, but the block detaches from the crankcase.
