A big day at the T-party!
I got all the spark plugs out and the cylinder oiled.
I've started painting the split rims
and I've got baby powder for getting the tubes and tires mounted

Tomorrow I'll give the crank a spin and see if the rings are still good.

I removed the rags I used to keep debris out of the spark plug hole and gave the T's crank a spin.
It was beautiful, man! Beautiful!
As soon as I can get tires mounted I'll connect a battery and see if she'll start.

I have lots and lots of baby powder, and  am ready to start mounting the Model T tires on the split rims as soon as the rims are good and dry so I won't scratch them up too badly. This maybe the beginning of World War III when the satellites pick up an enormous white cloud suddenly materializing over Fresno.  Oops!
