Re: Please Id theses parts that I got along with T parts I purchased

While the spindle MIGHT be model T the steering arm might not even be Ford, might be Chevrolet as could be the spindle. Some of these parts mix and match. What size is the spindle bolt? The drag link kinda looks like Model A but not quite.

Re: Anyone know who made these outside brakes.

Great that is a place for me to start. I was thinking Chevrolet but thought maybe the band would be too narrow. 11/23; Did some checking, looks like at least in 25 the rear drums were 11" (id/od?) and would have had the rear mount point like most, not the clip like shown. Going to keep searching, ma...

Anyone know who made these outside brakes.

I don't think they are one offs. The lever is marked F7 and is the only markings I could find. If no adjustment was made when they were taken off, the ID is abut 10-1/4", too big for small drum too small for big drum. The brake band is just over 1-1/4". Looks to be passenger side. I only was able to...

Re: Loose rivets in brakedrum

I have seen the brake drum rivets staked to get tight, that is a very short term fix as is what you are suggesting. There is a lot of stress on that drum between using it for brakes and clutch. My suggestion is new over sized rivets if needed and re do, but depends on how wallowed out the holes are,...

Re: Differential axle assembly

You have to fit the spacer just like anything else. With or without the spider gears in place on the spider the axles have to be able to rotate in the housing. If the spacer is to thick it needs to be reduced in thickness. Fiber or bronze they are sold in X thickness for wear. With fiber, because of...

I don't think the pinion housing is chipped, looks to be a lead gasket that has slipped. I think the shim and ring are spacers used because of wear in the case where the thrust bearing and notch plate fit. While a howling rear end might happen with mixing gears like the Model A, I have mixed gears i...

Maybe more important then inflation, taking into consideration of the income level of the people that owned Model T's back then, how many hours did the person have to work to pay for the part? Chances are, the person buying the newly made parts today is going to be in a higher income bracket and may...

Re: Looking for,1924-1927 Door female dovetail assembly

Should be in the classifieds. there are people selling parts that may not even look at the general forum. Lang's and I am sure others list them new. If you are looking for weathered ones, simple matter of make new look old. Part number is 5052BX.

No seal same as car Ruckstell. The sliding clutch gear and notch plate should block and keep most of the lube in the rear end anyway.
For the outer seals this might help;

Re: Driving on "Battery"

You can drive just fine on battery. Many cars did for many years. If your normal top speed is under 40, you can still reach it but it will be a bit slower and may not seem to have the same power. You may have to pay a little more attention to adjusting the spark lever, but it will run fine.

Fantastic! Before you cut the slits, check the fit first. If they need to be driven on then the slits will not be necessary. RE the heat! Don't get too gung-ho with the heat, with all the grease and wood spokes, don't want to burn the spokes up!

The adapters front or rear would be the same. The only difference if any in the kit would be the length of the bolt to mount on the rear maybe being a little longer. The floating hub in the picture above would have been an extra cost item not part of the kit.
