Re: Suggestions on who to send my wheels to????????

I used Mr Stutzman in Ohio. Could not have asked for better work. He arranged to have them painted for me as well. When I unwrapped them I thought about hanging them on the wall as art. I have a 15 with wood fellows. I had mine redone for safety more than aesthetics and now they are both safe and be...

Re: Crankshaft and pulley question

I have a follow up question. Once the pin is out is there an easy way to get the pulley off the shaft with the engine in the car? Specialty tool? Any one know the model/make of a puller that will fit nicely? I have a 15 touring with the narrow pan and my pulley appears to be wobbling and it throws t...

Re: Conversation starter...Oh the possibilities

Add an upper chamber and use it to brew coffee when you overheat. A nice cup to sip while you wait for it to cool down. No antifreeze.

Re: Good Statements for Our Well Being!

For me, there is nothing like the satisfaction of fixing something that most other people these days probably would have just discarded and gone out and bought a new one. I've got to make the attempt to fix the old one first. It's in my blood. If I spend fifty bucks on parts and twenty bucks on a to...

Re: Massacre (photo)

I'd like about 6 months to look through that pile. Does anyone know what the car/truck is in the bottom right hand corner. Five spoke wheel caught my eye. Maybe I haven't been paying close enough attention but I don't recall seeing a five spoke wheel before.

Chad,
Don't stop posting. I'm one of the guys who may need the info you and others can provide. Don't know any of the history here, don't care. I do know I don't want to miss out on any and all info on my Model T that I may need and someone else may have. Thanks

Re: WHat Have You Done To Your Model T In March?

Found and fixed an oil leak (imagine that, an oil leak in a Model-T). My external oil line was loose up front and was oiling down the front crankshaft pulley enough to make the belt jump off a few times.

Re: Head Gasket Replacement

The leak is at the front right corner of the engine where the head meets the block. It doesn't leak when cold but leaks when you run it and it gets to operating temp. It does not overheat with normal use. It would probably be fine for the next 20 years like it is but these kind of things bug me. Tha...
