What about timing?? Did U install the timing gear to the correct match?

Basic timing:
Spark lever up, #1 cylendar just past top dead center on the compression stroke (remove #1 plug and with a wire feel the piston go just past TDC ) The #1 coil should start to buzz. (Fireing order:1,2,4,3)

Re: A new Model T road

Osage Orange would make excellent Model T spokes....if you could find some 8/4 Osage O lumber. I made a few pens of the stuff and they are bautiful.

Re: Battery Problem

Check to see if your generator charge is gettin to the battery ussing a volt/ohlm meter. Check the cable and the battery post. As mentioned, the problem could be corrosion between the battery post and the cable connectors.

Re: Commutator & Rotor

You will be surprised how much a new wire harness will improve the operation of the engine. As stated, with that cap U need a flapper, not a rotor. Make sure none of the wires or connectors are grounded because that would give you a backfire.

Re: Starting fluid. Yes or no

I almost never need it but when I flood my T, or whatever, I use carb or brake cleaner as starting fluid. It's not quite as explosive but works well. I used some today to set the bead on a garder tractor tire. A bit scary but it worked.

Re: Major engine problem

How close to me are you in California? I have parts that maybe I can help you with. (Little or maybe no $$) Without looking I know I have 3 sets of magnits, 7 mag rings (that either have no coils of would have to be rewound), a few blocks, a bunch of fly wheels etc.

IMHO: If good spokes are tight on a good hub they SHOULD NOT be taken apart.

Thanks Adam. Question: Why do the magnets crack or break in the first place?? Their only resistance is oil and they are secured against the fly wheel..

Re: Triple Gear Pin Wear

Just a heads up: It's been a long time since I did transmission work, but I know the pins have to come out in the correct direction. I don't remember if you push the pins out from on top or the bottom. The pins have a slight taper. PS. As of today I have had 87 birthdays and am still going strong.

Re: How Long Have You Owned Your Old Iron?

[image][/image]I retrieved my 23 runabout from a rock pile in Hamburg, Wisconsin, in 1945. I guess that makes it 74 years ago. I wore it out when I was a kid so I brought it home to Sacramento and revived it. It runs great!

As you pull on that wrench think about what's holding the manifold in place while you exert all that pressure.
