What is this?

Post by TBones12 » Tue Oct 22, 2019 8:10 pm

I bought a Model T at Hershey and in some of the boxes were these items. Just curious, what are they and do they belong on a Model T.

The first is a nail. Don't know what it was for. Second and third pictures are of a magneto oiler. One end fits to the magneto post and the other end mounts to one of the bolts in front of the engine.Not sure about the last two. I don't think that ball joint would be strong enough for the steering drag link, but could be part of a shock absorber.

The ball is a clutch throw out arm ball from GM cars at least as early as 33.
