Re: Parts found at an old mine, are they Model T?

The box you are asking about is the keyed ignition switch and the opening next to it was where the large ammeter was installed. This box was used on T trucks back in the day.
Nice photos by the way

Re: Who Designed And Built The Ford 1904 Model B Car & Engine ?

Re: Sad day

Sold my restored '29 A 2-dr Sedan a couple of years ago to a young man (early 20's) from rural MN.. He saw my ad on craigslist and he asked a ton of questions. He wanted it in the worst way, and I...

Re: Cowl Width Dimension on Tudor or Coupe

Your photo is a little confusing. Where your arrows are located appears to be above the lowest part of the firewall. The sides are tapered in on that location. At the very bottom, the dimension on my...

Re: UHaul open car hauler for a Model T?

I have hauled many T's over the years with open trailers with no problems. Anything that is loose should be removed or wrapped. Now I wrap the entire car with 3 ft wide cling wrap material and cover...

Re: Vin number what year?

Whatever happened to just calling it "engine number" and "chassis number"? Before the chassis number was stamped onto the frame (1925 I believe), just the engine number was used to register your...

Re: What to do with this old '27 T?

Can't tell from the pics, but looks like a good start for a long project. I have a similar '26/27 coupe project and they are fun to work on. Do you have the right wheels? Can't tell what the axels...

Re: Spindels

Why do you want Model A rims instead of T rims? Both are available either new or used. A's have a 5-1/2" bolt circle and T's have a 5" bolt circle. My '27 has the late T style rims but all 5 rims use...

Re: Model T year id

Sometimes the serial number can be brought back by using a liquid dye penetrant used by piping contractors to detect cracks in piping systems. The slightest indentation will show up.
Just a thought.

Re: 1926-1927 closed car drip rails..

'26/'27 closed cars are coupes and sedans (2 and 4 dr.), where exactly are these drip rails?
I might be thinking of something in the roof area or possibly in a coupe trunk.
Thanks

Re: 26/27 Model T rear fenders.

Condition is everything. '26/'27 Coupe/Roadster rears are quite desirable and could be worth posting here, MTFCA site, and e-$$$. Check out gunman63 on e-bay, Mike sells '26/'27 parts all the time....

Re: Trailering Model T

I would totally wrap your auto with clear wrap and secure with rope all around the wrap. Use tie downs as described above and finish off with a good all weather tarp. I have heard of many trips down...

Re: Milwaukee,Wisconsin Ford Plant

There were 32 U.S. cities, and 12 foreign cities producing Model T autos in 1926. Milwaukee is listed in the production figures from 1921 to 1926 in McCalley's book. No mention of earlier cities,...

Re: Replacement 1926 Model T chrome radiator shell?

My '26 high radiator is 21" from the mounting flange to the top. On a high radiator the core or exposed part of the radiator is 18-3/4" roughly, and 17" on a low style radiator core.

Roadster62 has it right. Drill out the end of the crack. If you don't you can chase the crack until it becomes a longer and longer crack to repair. I am a welder and have done many of these. A good...

Re: How do you remove window garnish on a 27 Coupe door?

Remove the screws and slide straight up. Mine has a rubber cushion on the top rail that needs to be removed first, the sides have a bracket that the garnish slide over. These brackets are very hard...

Re: 1925 coupe garnish

I don't think so. '26 and '27 and early A doors are the same, but I believe that a '25 door has a smaller dimension.

Re: 1926 T roadster chassis question

I'd sell the '26 T and look for an A. It is a shame to destroy an original, when so many unfinished projects are out there.
