  1. I am not posting any more images of this Model K. Jim
  2. I always find it interesting when folks who have apparently never actually seen a car - make comments. I have inspected this car closely last October ๐Ÿง Jim
  3. I have a hunch this person is in Florida. I believe this is the same person posting over on The MTFCA Forum: My good friend Will lives in Melbourne Florida and has had dealings with this person. Will loaned him a book that was never returned - spent a lot of time with him. It was NOT a good experience ๐Ÿ‘Žโš ๏ธ Jim
  4. That car - is not in Texas anymore ๐Ÿ˜‰ It is my personal favorite Ford Model K It is probably the closest Ford Model K to original condition that exists in the world. I was honored to view it Las Fall up close along with other spectacular early examples at an undisclosed location. Jim

  6. The OPโ€™s tow vehicle has a 5000 pound rated tow capacity - but that is probably with the larger engine and factory tow package. The absence of a factory auxiliary transmission cooler would indicate that Jeep model was not designed to tow. In addition to an auxiliary transmission cooler and perhaps a different transmission on the larger engine - there perhaps is also a larger radiator and suspension - rear differential differences between the models. I have a 1998 Jeep Laredo with a 5.2 liter V-8 and factory tow package. It has a 5000 pound tow ca
  7. I am on the road over 300 days a year towing and have been doing so since 2006. My cooling system and my transmission operate just fine with my set up. Jim
  8. On my truck now ๐Ÿ‘ After the factory radiator heat exchanger - installed on the return line to the transmission - I have two auxiliary coolers. One is a tube type: The other is a plate type: Both are mounted in front of the ac condenser and radiator where the front grill was ๐Ÿ˜‰ Jim
  9. If you ever have an automatic transmission failure & rebuild ... Remove & replace any aftermarket transmission coolers you have installed - donโ€™t attempt to flush them. You may have to be adamant on insisting the transmission repair shop replace them. Also be prepared to replace your radiator too if the heat exchanger is not thoroughly flushed - the only way you can tell is by the pressure of fluid that comes thru on the return - some shops just run a short flush and cal it a day. I service my own transmission. I al
  10. Talk to an experienced honest transmission repair shop. The heat exchanger in your radiator cools the transmission fluid in the summer and warms it in the winter. It is the best way to cool the transmission fluid as it leaves the pan and cycles through to return. Auxiliary coolers are not as efficient and are not a substitute. They are a supplemental cooling add on. I just learned this on my last transmission rebuild. The owner of the truck before me did not have the factory heat exchanger on the radiator thorou
  11. The heat exchanger in your radiator is your primary cooler for your transmission. It may be plugged. That is the best way to cool your transmission - make sure it is operating correctly. Then add supplemental coolers. Jim
  12. I guess this year is shaping up to be the same with COVID regarding live attendance at auctions. That may kick prices up .... ๐Ÿค” Saturday Auction Results @ https://www.hagerty.com/media/auctions/our-6-favorite-woody-wagons-at-worldwides-2021-scottsdale-sale/?utm_source=SFMC&utm_medium=email&utm_content=21_January_23_Newsletter_Weekend Jim

  14. The engines were not purchased to โ€ hotrod โ€œ. Edward Towe is still a significant figure in the car collecting community. I donโ€™t appreciate your ignorant comment ๐Ÿ‘Ž Jim
