FS Black Era Headlight Bucket

FS. This bucket is a black era bucket and has the "flat" sides where it fits into the fender brace/headlight mount. I don't recall the years, it is earlier than the ones with the tapered sides. It isn't one of the early ones with the focus screw on top. It is useable, but not perfect by any means. I...

Re: FOR SALE 1923 T-TOURING BODY PLUS

Dennis, is it a '23 or '24-'25? '23 is a low radiator, '24-'25 is a high radiator. Makes a difference, just a heads up. Dave

Jim, don't count on the condenser just because it is new. I've had new ones that were bad, they can drive you nuts. Dave

Re: Why won't T start but runs.

Not saying Dan H is correct or not, but I do know that a bad condenser can drive you nuts! I have had some and know of some others that went bad over the last 50 years, and every one of them had different symptoms. I even had a new one(made in Mexico) about twenty years ago that would work just fine...

FS "Escutcheon" Plates

Re: Firewall

Eric, there is no "early" and "late" '23. If it is a low firewall (radiator) it is a '23, if it is a high firewall (radiator) it is a '24. This myth has been debunked on here many times, kind of like the "commercial" and "car" front fenders, this myth has also been debunked. The vendors for some rea...

Our "mostly" original '25 coupe still has a lot of the 90 year old paint, grease and dirt on the running gear, and it's going to stay that way. Dave :)

Re: Langs

I still have a pair of TT hubcaps that I bought in 1964 from an add in Hemming's that were "NOS", and when I got them, the nickel plating was very ruff, even though they were brass. I was very disappointed. That being said, I kept them and in the mid '90's, I had them replated in nickel at a shop in...

Re: Langs

Rich, you sure did bring back some memories. I remember a lot of those guys advertising in Hemming's back in the mid '60's. I was in my early teen's back then and couldn't afford much, but me and my best friend for 53 years sure spent a lot of time reading and dreaming of things back then. :) Dave

Re: Jack Rabbit or Turbo 400?

What Stephen said. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. Contrary to what has been posted on here as gospel, the original clutch can be adjusted to achieve a free neutral, that has been posted on here many times, just do a search. If you want a robust/tuff clutch, stick with the original one. JMHO Dave
