  • Biography
    Born July 6 1957. Raised in Oswegatchie NY in the foothills of the Adirondack mountains, Went to Clifton Fine central school. Served 6 years in the Army. After the army I worked at Ft Drum NY for 18 years as a Federal Police officer until 1999. Was released due to Reduction in Force and down sizing by that good for nothing President Clinton. Because of Clinton I was unemployed for a little while. Because of Clinton I was forced to leave my beautiful country home and moved to Trenton NJ in 2000 for work. In the end it wasn't all bad as I met my wife in New Jersey. Now retired and living in Melbourne, Florida. I enjoy helping others get there old cars running. A good day for me is a long drive with my 1919 Ford Model T Touring car.

    Can the car be driven without it without damaging the car? Is it easily replaceable? Where would I go to find one?
  2. I have a friend that is thinking about buying a 31 Caddy, The owner says it missing the valley pan and bolts, What is the valley pan?
  3. How do I tell the difference between the two model cars? I looked at the Filling Station and didnt see either the water pump or the fuel pump. I found a water pump on Kanter but the photo doesn't look anything like the one on the car. Are these two parts no longer available?
  4. I'm afraid I missed out on the car. I guess I waited to long. Thank you for all the information.
  5. Im helping a friend with his 33 chevy. It has a inline 6 engine. Its a 4 door but I don't know what model it is. At the moment it needs a fuel pump and a water pump and hoses. Where can I find these parts?
  6. Problem solved, Scrapped the cheap gauge and went with Auto Gauge.
  7. Well, I tried everything, Even a differant battery and the damn thing went really nuts then. I unhooked it and tossed it in the garbage pail. After talking to the Auto Meter folks and telling them what I was doing they assured me there gauge would do the job, So got the new Auto Meter gauge on its way. Now that said I did order it off Amazon so if I do need to return it I can send it back with no questions asked, Even got it a couple of dollars lower through them for the same gauge. I will try and find the shielded wire and that Zener. Thanks everyone for the help.
  8. I'm trying to install a digital water temp gauge in my 1919 Model T. The gauge works fine as long as the car is not running but as soon as I start the car it goes black. I do have an alternator system. The gauge is silmer to a Cobalt brand but a cheaper brand.( Which I'm starting to think this is the problem) My voltage with the car off is 13.48. With the car running its 14.85. I've tried running the power straight from the battery and also off my fuse block. Iv run the ground from the battery and I then tried running the ground to the block. Thinking that the problem may have been electrical noise from the coils I installed a electrical noise reducing capacitor from MSD but still did not help. Thinking that maybe it was getting to much amperage / power from the starter I installed a toggle switch to turn off the power to the gauge while starting the car and then turning back on after the car is running and still the same problem. I'm thinking that maybe the gauge is getting too much power/ amperage but I'm not smart enough to know how to reduce the amperage / voltage going to the gauge. So before I spend a bunch of money on an Auto Meter Cobalt brand gauge I want to make sure Iv covered all my bases on this one. Keep in mind that the electoral system in this car is of my own making. It's a modern fuse block with the power coming from the battery and all the lights and other wiring are now protected modern by fuses. Model T's did not have much of an electoral system to start with so if something should happen it would cook all the wiring in the system. Im stuck now, Not sure what else to do other than to either buy a new name brand meter or scrap the whole idea. I also tried installing an old school capillary / mechanical type gauge but the sending unit was too long to be installed into the gooseneck. What am I missing?
  9. Looking for right hand door for 1983 Chevy Camaro Berlinetta
  10. I dont know about that brand but I use Rotella 15-40 in my Model T and my 41 Plymouth because of the high zinc content. It costs a little more but I've had no problem in the 10 years I've used it.
  11. Ok guys, I guess I'll stick with Hagerty. Iv been with them for 7 years and no complaints. A model T is also referred to a Tin Lizzy. Shes a great 97 year old car and takes me to point A and brings me back to point B 99% of the time without any problem. I've only ever had to have it towed once when the old cork float in the carb crapped out for this ethanol fuel we are forced to use. There was a couple of times during the ride I had to tell the rollback driver to slow down on the bumps as he was bouncing the car around kinda bad.
