Diagrams of early to late frames

Post by JTT3 » Wed Mar 18, 2020 10:21 pm

Forum a while back, I think before the new system, someone had drawn diagrams of frames by years with the measurements and hole locations. I’ve tried to search for it but as of yet have not located it. If anyone has the link or a saved file can you please post the information? Best Regards John

Thanks Steve haven’t see that one, the thread I was talking about wasn’t really about frames but somehow morphed into a frame discussion. I’ll be using this as a guide though. Again thanks.

It was Mark Herdman of Australia that provided a few excellent threads about the changes in the model T frames from the beginning into the '20s.

Try this one for some of the earliest frames

There were a couple other threads, but google didn't want to show them to me. Maybe someone better than I can find them?

Note, Mark's measurements are in metric! Shouldn't be much of a problem these days as most rulers and tape measures have both our archaic system and the metric system side-by-side.

Fantastic John and Wayne. Just what I was looking for.
To be correct Is there a rivet size guide for the cross members and running board brackets.
Are they all be the same size?
