Re: Ford script TT cab

As Jeff said, this back panel with the Ford script was used on the earliest AA trucks, until February 1928.

Small difference in 1913 Victor 1 side lamps

Among the treasures I found at Hershey was the mate to my 1913 Victor “1” cowl lamp. Now I have a matching set. RSC Differences1.jpg Nope, not so fast! A close inspection revealed the spade mounting brackets were different. RSC Differences2.jpg I find the details to be interesting and know nobody wo...

Re: TT rear end question....

One other indicator of an early TT is the rear cross member. The early ones are shorter and have only one hole for mounting a bed instead of two. Your photo field of view didn't quite cover this area of the frame. Pictured below is what I'm describing.

Re: Winter is coming, time to cut wood. Model T buzz saw

I’m not trying to change the purpose of Matt G’s original post about his great Model T buzz saw – I love it. However, there was some interest regarding the aluminum hogshead on his late 1915 / early 1916 engine assembly. From an earlier post by Hap Tucker in July 2012 we get this mention of 1916 alu...

Re: Winter is coming, time to cut wood. Model T buzz saw

It looks like the transmission hogshead is aluminum. During early 1916 a few aluminum transmission covers were used alongside the newly introduced cast iron covers. These 1916 aluminum covers were more like the 1911-12 style covers in that did not have the reinforcing gussets at the bolts holes. Alu...

Re: Wishing You all well in the Mid West

The Arkansas River through Tulsa looked more like the Mississippi River for several days – wide and fast moving. It flooded numerous areas along its course as the waters rose due to increased output flow from the upstream Keystone Lake Dam. The river is now below flood stage and cleanup is going wel...

Re: What have you done with your T in March?

This block came out of a TT truck that looked like it was cobbled together at some time in the past, based on the mix of major pieces. My plan is to make a test stand using this engine to test carburetors, starters, and generators. It’s an Oct 1925 engine, in others words an early 1926 block. It loo...

Frame Anomaly

I found spool pieces inserted inside the frame rails on both sides of one frame while looking over some T frames I have. They’re at the rear portion of the frame. Instead of the three rivets being used for the corner bracket, one rivet was left out and this tubular support was in its place. There is...

Help ID’ing Body Brackets

I need to learn more about Model T bodies! Where do these brackets go, what do they do, and what years were they used? Thank you for your kind help.

Re: Dating Ruckstells

This Ruckstell plate is from my TT rear axle. Given the serial number, it most certainly is a later example.

Re: Model T Electrical Schematics Available

Would the later non-starter car, those with the firewall terminal block, have an electric tail light as shown in drawing #3? Or would it just be the oil tail lamp?
