Re: tc window pockets

Nope Dick, original side curtains did not have pockets in them. Lower section of the front curtains had a 1/8" wire frame sewn inside to help with rigidity of the panel.

Pushrods and valve train geometry

I am putting one of Len Fanelli's cam and roller lifter setups in an XPAG and think I have misunderstood Len's directions on pushrod length. Can the experts help me clarify info? I think the valve train geometry is important and pushrod length affects this. Len sent a new set of nice pushrods that n...

Wing Piping Color on Sequoia Cream and Clipper Blue

On Sequoia Cream and Clipper Blue TCs – what color was the piping on the wing and front splash apron areas?
Typically I believe this was body color on red, green, and black cars, but never paid attention to the other two colors.

Re: Original Door Panels needed

Steve, photos won't help with what's needed right now. My next step will require originals to be disassembled (untacked, untied, unstitched, unsewn, unfolded, etc.).
It's a project worthy of donation, and the results will be of benefit to all - just like Doug Pelton has done for us.

Original Door Panels needed

In the midst of my research work for the forthcoming book about our T cars, I need original interior door panels from TCs (actually, all T cars, though TC is most important) to dissect and study. Panels have to be original with the pocket on them. Usable condition isn’t real important. Green and Red...

XPAG plumbing for heater

I would like some input on plumbing for a heater connection to an XPAG engine. Hot water source will be tapped from the water outlet - the piece attached to the front of the cylinder head that the thermostat sits on. Water flow needs to be maximized - in the proper direction - to the heater from thi...

TF1500 for sale

I’ve been made aware of a two owner TF1500 that’s for sale in California that will likely sell quickly. From the few photos I have it appears to be solid, mostly original and in okay condition. Red – probably repainted once in its lifetime, replacement vinyl seats and interior panels, fuel tank repa...

Re: Abingdon records

Bud, Jim, and others - The personnel records of Abingdon won't help to find out more about "Derek" whose name appeared on a scrap of paper in the seat back that Bud disassembled. All TC interiors were manufactured at Morris Bodies Branch in Coventry, the same place the tubs were manufactured. There ...

Re: Abingdon records

I have copies of some of these records. Give me as much info about the source of your info - from the photo it looks like a scrap of paper. Where did the paper come from? If in the car, exactly where?
