      Thank you for posting that information, but I have to tell you I have been thinking of going for fine point status, but now all this knowledge is scaring me.

          Articles and Sub-Forums FYI

          I posted up some extraordinary informational write up's submitted to me by Pluck. I placed these in our Articles area which i think was a better spot than the tech forum since they are very long and detailed. These articles are about the evolution of the engine block, oil pump, brake shoe and the junction box.
          Thanks Pluck for allowing these to be shared exclusively on the VFF.

          by Rob Patterson
          I've been a Model 'T'er for nearly 30 years.
          My wife and I have a very nice Canadian built '21 with an Australian built 3 door touring body on it, that we restored several years ago. Its been in our family since 1964....but that's another story. I am also nearing the completion of a 1915 T Speedster I've built from bits n pieces.....also another story, but at least now you'll get the...

          Brake Backing Plate Assembly 101

          Found this on UTube. For me an excellent tutorial about brakes and how they work, things to look for if repair/rebuilding. Is really good at showing how the guts work.

          Does not discuss adjustments, drums, champher linings, arcing linings, or the rest of the brake system. But for a quick idea of the parts and how they work is great for the uneducated like myself.

          One question...

          I didn't want to hijack dmdeaton's build thread

          I was recently asked about sidebars (slight modifications) being posted here on the VFF. There is a difference between performance up grades VS all out chops and hacks (it's really all common sense). Performance up grades have been around since the beginning of time. This was a huge issue that was never addressed on the and one of many...

          There was a nice basic how to spray painting article not long ago in the MAN by Ken Ehrenhofer. Does anyone know which edition it was in. I want to scan it into the technical forum here

          Cad plating look alike
          by wrndln
          I have had a lot of parts white cad plated and they look nice, however there are a few fasteners, mostly bolts that I forgot to have cad plated or discovered later that they needed to be plated. Does anyone know of a spray paint finish that mimics white cad plating? I was thinking of something like a white or off-white spray paint and then scuff it lightly.

          He suggested that I come on over here rather than hang out in the political site and the house with holes in it. Nice site.. 86, did 3 As with a Best of Show, wrote six how-to articles for the National magazines and know a small amount of how Model As work.

          Buyer Beware...Emergency Brake Linings...Where is the Quality Control?
          by Steve Plucker
          A few weeks ago I ordered from Bratton's a set of Emergency Brake Linings.

          After they arrived, I installed them onto the E-Brake Bands...They came up 5/16" to short.

          (Picture to follow)

          I contacted Bratton's and told them that this was unacceptable...that the linings must cover the entire band:
