Got my wheels painted and my new 50 ford hub caps installed.
Hey your car looks pretty cool! What kind of steering gear you have there? Looks like a modified rack and pinion.
Yeah, very neat little bucket. Also curious how that r and p steering works turned that way. I'd cut the windshield in half, but I like looking over them.
Never seen a rack used in that configuration, intersting.
Those full height T windshields are a built in speed governor Don. You run it up till the windshield shakes and back off five and you are good to go.
That's a slick little bucket T Locb, it looks like a lot of fun to drive. The first rod I built was a steel bodied T that didn't look near that good and we had a blast in it.
Great lookin TV8!
An interesting steering box application. I don't see why it wouldn't work .
Neat little bucket.
How about a pic from behind? I'd like to see the tailights & gas tank. What are they from? Model T?
Man, that's a sweet ride - what kind of steering system is that - I still miss mine, but I really like my current ride too - have fun with your bucket.
Nice bucket! I've seen pics of that steering setup before. No reason why it wouldn't work, but then, you're driving around so it must be working.
Looks like a Uni-rack. Saw one a couple yrs ago done same way but on the right side. Very neat.
Yes, the steering is different. The rack only operates on one end. Some race car thing. It works very well. Precise and easy steering. Here is a photo of the rear end.
Wow. Nice job. You nailed it.
Looks good from Northwest Connecticut!
