Re: UHaul open car hauler for a Model T?

The tire straps on Uhaul trailers do not fit or work on model T wheels. Trailered mine 2 weeks ago and had to use straps to the axles instead.

Re: Rad stuffing

After cleaning out the rad and refilling it there is no sign of any issues with it. I wasn't sure if this was an old trick to raise the water temp by slowing down flow through the rad.

Rad stuffing

Re: Noisy bumper brackets

Thank you for the help. I wasn't sure if I had to heat the rivet to get it to crush.

Noisy bumper brackets

I was wondering how to tighten up the rivets on the rear bumper brackets of a tudor?

Re: Wheel color

I'm curious to know how close the colour of the Tacoma Creme is. I just received my order from Modelawheelcolors today but won't be using it right away.

Re: 1928-29 Oval Face speedo calibrated for Kilometers

Every year when you buy plates you have to report the mileage on the car to MTO (Ministry of Transport Ontario). They hassled my friend one year because he only drove his car 7 miles. I'm not sure...

Re: inner tube...

A trick I saw somewhere was to partially inflate the tube inside the tire before installing the tire. I haven't tried it yet but it seems like it should work better than trying to force the flat tube...

Re: 1928-29 Oval Face speedo calibrated for Kilometers

My only concern would be getting the MTO to understand that a car that has had the mileage reported in miles for 87 years is all of a sudden in Kilometres.

Re: Red light

I just had the same problem and in my case the flasher unit had gone bad in only 3 months use. Waiting on a replacement now. Nobody near me stocks 6V flashers.

Re: Short in a new wiring harness

When my lights developed a dead short I eventually took the headlight switch apart and found a small blob of grease inside that would make contact when the switch was turned. Probably not a common...

Re: cleaning out a radiator

A local rad shop suggested leaving it filled with CLR cleaner overnight if it's off the car. Picture what ends up in a humidifier or dehumidifier.
