Was Henry Ford a white supremacist?
The shiort answer is partially yes.
To be a white supremacist, a person must comply with two conditions.
First, he must fit the moden Diversity-defined profile of a white supremacist, which is
Henry Ford did in fact meet the first criteria.
Second, he must actively oppose freedom-privileges for Diversity people offered and guaranteed by a powerful central government.
Henry Ford partially met some of the second criteria, although most of the freedom-privileges that Diversity people enjoy today were non-existent in Henry's time frame. For example, there was no such thing as Affirmative Action or abortion rights or slavish government support for Israel before WW II. However, Henry did oppose some aspects of US involvement in WWII, which brought deep disfavor down upon him from nascent American Diversity leaders that were advocating strong US intervention into the European conflict. American Diversity leaders advocated strong US intervention in WW II era Europe in order to save their fellow Diversity brethren in imminent peril, and to combat German-style white supremacy.

How do you change a tire on a Model T?
You take it off the wheel while the wheel remains on the car. Then you repair the tube and put it back together on the car. Then you pump it up with a hand pump. The tools to do all this came with the car. If you took a long trip you might choose to carry several extra tires and tubes. All this remembered from conversations with my dad who owned a model t when it was just a car. Bill
The later cars had rims that look a lot like a giant bicycle rim missing its spokes, that could be removed from the main part of the wheel and replaced with a spare rim that has a tire already mounted. My 1925 has this setup and carries one spare tire/rim assembly.

Who was Henry Ford?
Henry Ford was the founder of the Ford Motor Company. He invented the Quadricycle, the first "horseless carriage" that he produced. Its popularity helped fund and launch Ford's business, and the new Ford Motor Company was founded 7 years later, on 16 June 1903.
Ford used the assembly line concept to build his cars relatively cheaply, and revolutionized transportation by making automobiles affordable to the common man, and not just to the rich, as had been the case previously. His mass production methods included the use of completely interchangeable parts. His massive River Rouge plant began with raw materials (e.g. iron) and produced finished cars. He was also credited with being among the first to use the so called conveyor belt method in the automotive industry where each worker specialized in working on a single part as it passed by his station on the conveyor belt. This made the work go a lot faster but it also became repetitive. Ford was a pioneer in applied time and motion studies and applied this widely in his car plants.
Ford's other innovation was to pay the then unheard of high wage of $5 a day. He believed that the producers of his automobiles should be able to afford to buy them.
Never heard of Hendry Ford. If you are asking about Henry Ford, Henry Ford was an American industrialist, the founder of the Ford Motor Company, and sponsor of the development of the assembly line technique of mass production. Ford did not invent the automobile, but he developed and manufactured the first automobile that many middle class Americans could afford to buy. His introduction of the Model T automobile revolutionized transportation and American industry. He was born in Greenfield Township, Michigan 1863.

What was the difference between the Ford Model T and Model B?
The Ford Model T (colloquially known as the Tin Lizzie and the Flivver) was an automobile produced by Henry Ford's Ford Motor Company from 1908 through 1927. It is generally regarded as the first affordable automobile, the car which "put America on wheels"; this was due to some of Ford's innovations, including assembly line production instead of individual hand crafting, as well as the concept of paying the workers a wage proportionate to the cost of the car, so that they would provide a ready made market. The first production Model T was built on September 27, 1908 at the Piquette Plant in Detroit, Michigan. The designation Ford Model B, like Ford Model A, was actually used for two different automobiles. The first was produced in 1904-05 and is among the earliest Ford Motor Company products. The second Model B was an improvement of the second Model A and entered production for the 1932 model year. Strictly speaking the Model B was a four-cylinder car, but it was at this time that Ford began producing a very similar car with Ford's new Flathead V8 engine. The V8 car was marketed as a Model 18, though it is commonly called the Ford V-8 today, and was virtually indistinguishable from the Model B. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
When i tell people this is a B-Ford engine, They always ask whats the difference is between an A and a B Ford engine. Well here it goes> The 1932 V-8 was introduced as the 'Ford Model 18.' The four cylinder model was designated the 'Model B.' Although the V-8 was a national sensation and sold very well, there were many four cylinder Model B's produced. Compression of the Model B engine was 4.8; the A was 4.2. The Model B engine produced 50 hp at 2800 rpm; the A produced 40 hp at 2200 rpm. The Model 'B' mains were 2" diameter; mains in the 'A' were 1-5/8". 'B' rods were 1-7/8"; A rods were 1-1/2". The 'B' camshaft provided an increase in valve timing duration which contributed to the 50 hp at 2800 rpm. A diaphragm type fuel pump was mounted to the lower right side of the engine block. The water pump mounted with three bolts instead of four. The oil pump forced oil directly to the main bearings under mild pressure. Along with other valve chamber modifications, the oil return pipe was eliminated. Model 'C;' The 1932-34 Ford four cylinder engine has been unofficially dubbed the Model 'C.' This designation cannot be found in Ford literature or correspondence. It is strictly a user connotation. Changes from the 'B' to the 'C' engine includeed: a crank shaft employing integrally forged counterbalances, a shortened three bolt water water pump housing and a 39 pound flywheel compared to a 62-1/2 pound flywheel provided with the Model 'A.' (The counterbalances make up the difference.) There were 263,765 Model 'B' (and 'C') engines produced between March 9, 1932 and late 1934
