Model t rear axle: Cad or detailed drawings

Hey all, I'm after a cad file or someone that has sketched up a detailed drawing for the rear drive axles. The only thing I have close to either is the image i've attached which I found on here.

Many thanks for any help

WTB headlight forks for smaller brass lights

Hey all,
I'm looking for a pair of headlight forks for a pair of Acetylene headlights I have.
The hole centres are about 12.5cm or 4.9inches give or take a bit.

Also looking for a pair of sidelight brackets.

Cheers

Looks like a fun, red time Davey !!
What’s the dark red car beside the T ?
It's a 194x Riley. The cars got a massive racing history in Australia and lots of the body panels used to be made of old signs! Was for sale too!

Re: Air Cooled Engine Question

Many air cooled engines actually have a sort of jacket around the fins so that the air from a fan at the front of the engine forces the air past all the fins.
Very cool to see, but problematic when in dirty muddy conditions or when fins start to break off.

Re: What have you done to your T in October?

Well I finally got my 1916 finished for the Red Dust Revival in Western Australia.
Unfortunately it appears to have snapped a triple gear shaft. But I had heaps of fun in other cars!

Can some help identify this brass item?

Alright everyone, it's time for what is this thing.
My thoughts are float bowl for a carburetor but not entirely sure. All I know is that it's missing a shaft inside and that some sort of tapered fitting goes into the side.
Could even be a filter??

Re: Filling gaps in wood bodys

Thanks for the replies guys,
I thought that might be the case with the gaps.
With the gap hiding did they use the eclipse metal/wood and then paint it or was it more of a flashy show piece?
I guess there is always a way to hide in perfections.
