Thanks! Oh yeah, it stops great with the properly adjusted and rebuilt original mechanical brakes. Of course if they get real hot they do tend to fade bad...

The trick with early brakes, Model T on is to get on them and off, never ride them down if you can avoid it. On, Off, On and so on.

Perfect setting too. No ugly modern cars on the road to spoil the video. I thought way more than 50 mph!

Thanks! Yes, it was fun and I learned a lot during the work on it. My first flathead V8 and I have to say Fordbarn was a big help with answers to questions, research and attaining parts as needed. Thanks again!

Wait’ll you drive it to your local car show and all the knuckleheads start telling you you “have” to put a chevy in it. Little do they know.....
