    I have been working on old cars since I was 14 which is a long time ago. I prefer cars pre 1930.

    1924/5 Dodge Brothers Business Sedan Wiper Motor

    Try Model A and Model T suppliers (Langs, MAC) or anyone in the UK for an electric wiper motor.

    What is your preferred degreasing technique?

    The dollar store has a great cleaner that works great in a spray bottle but nothing beats oven cleaner.

    Thinking about a 1927 "T"

    I assume any car pulled out of a barn or garage was left there for a reason which was usually mechanical and a Model T was no different. There are so many T's out there that finding someone to assist you is not a problem. Driving a Model T is different from all other cars in the transmission. Find some one who has one and is willing to let you take a test drive before you by one. If the one you are looking at has a Ruckstal and rocky mountain brakes they are nice accessories but not necessary. People buy Model T's as they look and sound like antique cars for a reasonable price and are fun.

    nothing ventured nothing gained. If you are not going to use it then you have nothing to lose by trying to rebuild yourself.

    Electric Oil Pump for antique cars

    If you are doing it to see if it can be done then go for it else fix the problem. Cont. parts are available as they made many different engines as has been pointed out. I have two cars with continential engines and several Durant blocks in the garage and converting them to electric oil pumps would be a challenge. Model T have had oil pumps added to them but they are a different design. If you want to see how model T's have oil pumps you might try the T forums or speedster forums.
  12. I do my best problem solving when I am asleep and I am obsessed over getting it right. Just my engineering and EMT training I guess.
  13. There is also a contential and Durant section on this Forum.
  14. Is he a member of the Durant Club?
