What is this?

Post by TBones12 » Tue Oct 22, 2019 8:12 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.

I have not had a chance to check responses. I sent pictures from my "smart" phone and thought they went through. Anyway, here are the pictures:
I find the carriage head type nail intriguing.

Accessory magneto post oilers, for '26-'27 (threaded one) and earlier cars with the 3 bolt pattern. I've never seen that type of delivery end tho…

What size is the bolt and ball assembly?

Thanks for the pix Robert. Interesting stuff. Seems like the tubes are too stingy for an outside oiler, what does that cylindrical item do ?

As for the ball-end nut, is it possible the two pieces didn't originally go together ? I've seen hinge pin finials that were threaded to go in the body of the hinge . . .

The carriage head nail looks typical of fasteners used to trim horse drawn vehicles. Fun to see these things !
