  1. I heard this news on Saturday at Hilton Head. We had just been to see the auction cars. There was a Marmon there and it made me think about Ron. 30 minutes later, I get the news of his passing. I have to say that I am deeply saddened.
  2. I'm in need of a good used Model T low speed drum. No cracks. No deep grooves. Good gear teeth. Worn bushings or minor grooving OK. Remove "nospam" from e-mail address. Thanks, Hal Davis haldavis2000nospam@yahoo.com
  3. I noticed more than one vehicle registered in the wrong class at Hershey. I was just wondering what happens to those vehicles when the judges come around? Do they judge them in the class they registered in? Do they refuse to judge them? Do they notify the correct team to come to their location and judge them? Just curious.
  4. I got the news from Rick Hoover yesterday. I was totally shocked. I never had the oportunity to meet Dan in person, but always wanted to. He was a friend noetheless. We both used to be a lot more active on the forum, back in the early days. Dan sold me a tail light for my TT a few weeks ago. It will always serve as a reminder to me of Dan.
  5. I can't give you a definitive answer, but here are some differences: Early '30 models had the oval speedometer Late '30 models had the round speedometer Late '31 models had the indented firewall with the fuel shutoff under the hood rather than inside under the tank. Don't know if that helps or not. Hopefully someone with more knowlege than myself can give more info.
  6. Mechanical Engineer. Currently employed by world's largest lawn mower manufacturer.
  7. Commercial vehicles was the assumption I was under. I don't think I could get away with Class 11. However, there were indeed T chassis as well as TT chassis. I'm certainly no expert, but I would think those would have to go in the Commercial class, too. The Huckster would be commercial in my opinion, but the Station Wagon does kinda blur the line, doesn't it?
  8. Does anyone have a front spring for a 1922 Ford TT Truck they would like to sell? Thanks, Hal Davis Lyons, GA
  9. <div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">I would think <span style="font-weight: bold">just the chassis</span> would not be accepted. That's my feelings on it. </div></div> The thing is, not only is that the way it left the factory, that is the way it left the dealer. That is how it was when you bought it. Cabs and beds were the owner's responsibility up until 1924. I think you could still get a chassis after that, but in '24 they started offering them with cabs.
  10. Thanks. Actually, it came from the factory with no cab either. Just a firewall, hood, front fenders and running boards. You had to sit on the gas tank to drive it.
  11. This is probably taking it to the extreme, but has anyone ever entered a chassis only into AACA judging? We are all familiar with "As it left the factory, not how it left the dealer." Specifically, I was thinking about my 1922 Ford TT truck. Ford did not offer cabs or bodies until 1924. All TT's before then left the factory as chassis only. Bodies were built by the the owners or coach builders, after the sale. Could I restore my chassis and enter it into AACA events? Almost sounds like a shoe in as there are few interior or exterior points to be taken. I suppose the downside is that the engine and undercarriage are much more visible, so more discrepancies are likely to be caught by the judges. What are your thoughts on this? Hal Davis
  12. How many leaves should there be in a 1922 Ford TT front spring? Mine has 6, but it is obvious there were more. The cars that year had 7. Were the trucks the same? I've heard as many as 11. 9 seems to be a common answer, although "From the firewall forward, it's the same as the car." is often heard. I know the '26 and '27 had 9 (Ford Parts Book), but I can find no data on earlier models. Even supplier catalogs have conflicting data. Hopefully some of you can help me determine the correct answer. Thanks, Hal Davis
