How low can you go?

Doubt all you want but it is a T transmission in front of the Warford

Inside that Model T Ruckstell housing is a 4.88 Model A ring and pinion on a spool

Our solution to get this thing to stop

The two SR Windfields & the Newport Hillclimb sticker

Inch and a half clearance under the T transmission housing

The stamping speaks for itself
