Re: WTB 35 x5 tire

Unfortunately I'm too far away in California. I could give you a usable tire but you'd have to pay shipping.

Re: Modern advances in the lubrication of the original roller type timer

I've been using lubriplate white grease, non conductor. for years. Roller type timer, pack it full and run it without any maintenance until the engine fails (many thousand miles) then replace the timer and repeat.

Re: Someone must have a good fender

I think I have one (not sure if it's right or left side) but I'm not sure if there's any original paint on it. It's old paint and black, I suspect very old repaint I may be able to see it tomorrow to verify right or left side and I'll shoot a couple of pictures if you're interested. Ed aka #4

Re: Fan Problema #4

You're running your fan belt way to tight. Scott hit the nail right on the head in his first paragraph. With the engine shut off I can reach in, put a finger on the fan blade and spin it and the blade will turn 3 or 4 inches. I just keep it tight enough to turn the pulley on the water pump (if it ha...

I'm a little reluctant to respond here because I'm so far off base compared to most of you with my attention to lubing my Model Ts. I'll stay strictly to lubing Old #4 because I drive it the most.

Harrah's Kampkar came from Piedmont/Oakland, CA.

Old school. You drive down a hill in the same gear that you would drive up it. And continually press hard on the low pedal so no band slippage! Problem solved!
