Re: Water Pump Leak

Not sure why a radiator flush would make your pump leak unless it was rusted up. The water that got on the car shouldn't have been rusty after a flush either. Start with just replacing the packing....

Re: Water return housing

The threads in the block are most likely stripped. You will need to find some type of thread repair. I always caution people not to disturb fasteners if not necessary. The model A should use studs &...

Re: 1927 Model T Touring, clutch pedal operation help

That is how it works. Before you start the car you should buy a few manuals concerning your car. The first should be an owners manual that is republished and sold by the shops that sell T parts.

Re: 1927 Touring carburetor help, new owner

Does anyone out there think this carb linkage is stock? I have a '20 and 23 and they are completely different with none of the extra do-dads, but maybe that is how the later Ts were built.

Re: 1927 Touring carburetor help, new owner

Does it have a foot accelerator pedal? The carb looks stock in the photo. Before you tear it apart try to use some penetrating oil on all the linkages to free things up, it could just be solidified...

Re: Help! how to attach wiring to switch head without damaging bakelite?

The original one doesn't look to be soldered. Is the slot in the new one for a spade?

Re: Help! how to attach wiring to switch head without damaging bakelite?

Yes a photo would help as I am confused also. Are you talking about the horn button?

Re: 1912/1913 Model T Steering Wheel restoration

A little sanding, some wood putty, maybe a bit of glue, black paint for the hub, stain and varnish for the wood and you are done.

Re: One Or All 4?

Push the dipstick fully in. Try a quart less for a while before you rebuild the engine.

Re: One Or All 4?

As long as you can cover the piston with solvent it will get to the rings, no need to find a specific position. After it soaks for a while and while the plugs are out crank the engine some, you want...

Re: One Or All 4?

I have freed stuck rings, and valves for that matter, with Marvel Mystery Oil, and trans fluid mix. Let it soak for a few days.

The late Ts had the gas tank under the cowl as a FORD better idea!

Re: One Or All 4?

You say the engine was rebuilt 1000 miles ago, but How many years ago? gummed up rings happen with time not miles.

Re: Need someone locally, just bought a model T Touring

If the oil is old and dirty, change it before you run the car. Even in neutral the car will have some resistance to rolling due to some normal drag on the bands.

Re: JAX vintage valve components

I had a model A adjustable lifter that liked to wander. I used some red LocTite when I re-adjusted it and it hasn't moved since.
