  1. Ed: It sounds like a depot hack which would have been a dodge frame with an aftermarket body probaby made by Cantrell or Martin Perry. See if you can find a body tag on it. Dodge made a screen side pickup but never a stock depot hack. Because it is aftermarket it is rarer and their are even clubs dedicated to the body manufacture. Dodges do not bring the same price as Model A. Fully restored the truck is worth between 10,000 and 15,000. It is a nice body style to have. Do you have pictures?
  2. The first problem is that it was not aluminum but a zinc material which is softer. I might have a spare on a set of floor boards and I will check this evening to see what I have. Have a nice day. Jan
  3. I used model a snaps on my moon.
  4. Paul: I would not put the fuel filter next to the carb. I would put it on the inlet side of the vac tank which is the suction side going to the fuel tank. Have a nice day
  5. Dave: Thank you the link arrived. I am going to bead blast it tonight and install this weekend.
  6. Gentleman: Thanks for the offers. Dave I sent you a PM. Have a nice day
  7. AJ: I would not worry about wearing out the tires as we get a lot of mileage on them. I have some cars with twenty years of service on them. My tires usualy dry rot before they wear out. I would get wheel dollys and paint them flat black and no one will notice them. I am sure your could make a subframe out of square tubing with castors om them and set the T on them. Hope this helps.
  8. The former owner used bailing wire to replace it. Original but not real safe. Thanks
  9. I am need of a service brake link for a 1923 screenside. This connects to the rod on the rear end and activates the outside brake. It has two removable clevis pins. One at each end. Thanks
  10. Let me throw my two cents into the discussion. I belong to the AACA, HCCA, MTCA, Model T International, Dodge Club and the Durant Club. I am a technical editor for the Durant club. I respond to questions on the AACA website, Dodge Forum, Model T forum, and Durant site. I do multiple sites because there are many common questions. It takes more time to write the article in the Durant Standard then answer questions on the forums and I get excellent ideas from the forum for my column. Writting a column does take a lot of time and creativity but to me it is worth it. Don't judge a club by its technical editors but the whole package. I think the Dodge techincal editors are top notch and will answer any question you have if you ask them. Have a nice evening.
  11. That work is being done on my back porch. If it were the living room I would have to have the beer in a beer mug.
  12. The only thing that ever breaks on a Model t are parts made by Dodge.
  13. Mike: Make sure your spare has air and your gas tank is full. Flush your cooling system to make sure you are clean and refill with a good coolant mix. Do an oil change and take a spare quart with you. Make sure your points are filed and your plugs are clean and gapped properly. Check your tire pressure. Check the grease level in the rear end and grease all grease fittings. Make sure you have a good set of basic tools under the seat and a roll of electrical tape and some wire ties along with rags. If you have a fuse block make sure you have extra fuses. You should have a fire exten. and a good cell phone. Take pleny of sun screen and a six pack and have fun.
