Model T Front end
I'm working on a 24 TT truck. It's not original and not a rod either. I wanted the original look with a late model driveline. I am putting in a V6 and auto trans. It should fit under the T hood. So far all is good.
Then I thought I'd go with aluminum spoke wheels, MT disc brakes and keep the original front end. This is because I no longer have a brake in the trans as stock. I can't use the wishbone because it mounts to the T oil pan. So I'd add a 4 bar. Also the axle would twist with the disc brakes needing the 4 bar.
Someone just told me that a Model T axle/spindles has a zero degree camber. They said at more than Model T speed, it would be unsafe hitting a bump. Question...Didn't they used to race T's on tracks? Can anyone tell me if this is truely unsafe or is it just not the quality of a rod or later suspensions ride? If I go all rod suspension, I can't keep the orignal look of wood spoke wheels. Alumaspokes look just like wood. I'm not trying to go fast, just faster than a stock model T.
Thanks for any input.
