Re: Model T Transmission

When people drove their Model T's in their era the bands were constantly adjusted and relined. Best way to give longer life to the bands besides Kevlar is to engage the bands quickly, and not...

Re: Your thoughts and advice needed.

Might be a '14 but has a later body from the hood former back, and electric lights. It would be good to verify the year of the chassis. Depending on what is truly missing I see $2500 - $4000.

Re: Exhaust manifold glands

If they are installed properly they shouldn't migrate. The ones made of actual pipe would be more secure anyway. Ford wouldn't have spent the money to add them if they were unnecessary. They are used...

Re: Exhaust manifold glands

Do the machine work first and then measure. Some find cutting their own rings from steel pipe works better than the rings you can get nowadays as they would be solid round. Personally I would test...

Re: Safety or not

You could tap on it lightly and listen for a muffled clink due to the plastic in the middle of safty glass.

Re: 59A Flatty. A good candidate for rebuild? It's full of sludge!

Most often seen when water has entered the combustion chamber. It was an old time method to get rid of carbon if done on purpose.

Re: rubber boots

Maybe they need to be removed to show the condition of the item they were covering.

Re: rubber boots

They were a common after market accessory. used on many other cars also. I don't know if their presence would affect judging.
