Re: Engine splash pans

Going from brass to taller "black" radiator in 1917 was as much about modernizing the car as it was for cooling. While there might have been some flat tube radiators late in production(?), the majority had round tube type. The information on the hood is on pages 211 and 212 of Bruce's book "Model T ...

Re: What have you done to your T this November

In getting the 21 ready to sell, pulled the engine and fixed clutch issue. Pins were below the outer surface of the drive plate. Installed plate with longer pins and added extra disk to the pack. Dry the pack came up a bit on the short side. Now seems to de-clutch better for shifting the Warford.
