Re: Very dark day. Howard is gone.

So sorry to here of Humble Howard's passing. He was certainly a legend in the model T community. His passing will most definitely leave a huge void not soon to be filled. It was nice to have seen him riding with Ed one last time at the SCVMTFC 50th anniversary endurance run this last June. Howard wi...

Boy! I thought our gas here was a good deal when it dropped from $4.29.9 to $3.79.9 this last month at the Chevron station for regular.

Re: Gas tank sediment bowl

Thanks to RV, Rich and Dan for their reply. As I mentioned I my first post I suspected that they were unpainted originally. I'm currently rebuilding three sediment bowls and always like to do things correct if at all possible, they will be buck naked!

I'm suprised that nobody out there can answer my inquiry about the original factory finish on the steel sediment bowls. This is kinda fun stumping the experts out there.

Gas tank sediment bowl

Can anyone tell me what the correct finish on the steel sediment bowls under the gas tank was? Most of the time these are painted black but is that correct? I'm just wondering if they were just left unpainted from the factory, I have never seen any evidence of paint on unrestored ones.

Re: Tons of parts for sale in California

I've dug through the pile quite a few times since June and always come home with a truck load. Lots of good parts there, wish I had more space. Doug is a nice guy to do business with. He has always been more than fair with his prices. What is left is worth much more than the current price being asked.

Re: 30/3-1/2 tire smaller than normal.

That is a standard 30 x 3 1/2 tire. As far as I know the modern made 30 x 3 1/2 tires are all oversize they are actually 31 x 4 in size. A word to the wise..... Never use an original tire as a spare regardless of how good it looks! Unless of course you enjoy being stranded on the side of a back road...

Back in 1971 when I started driving there was a self service gas station (one of the first I think) across the street from the high school that I attended. It was called "Easy Pickn's Gas" price was .19 per gallon for regular, .21 for supreme. Oh those were the days!

Re: Drive shafts

The stepped driveshaft torque tube came out in 1924 and was used till 1927. I'm not sure if it was used in all production, the earlier smooth tapered torque tube may have also been used during that time period.
