Got this timer with some T stuff. It's worn some but looks in fair shape. Appears like a New Day brush would work. Any comments?

Looks like a New Day inside for the most part. Wonder what the original brush or roller looked like?

Very neat looking timer!

From Art's research it appears Mr. Turner had some second thoughts about his original design?

Gary, A Turner Timer brush is the same as a New Day brush. I'll post a turner timer brush in it's original box for today's ACCESSORY OF THE DAY.

Interesting that Turner changed/revised the contact design of both timer and brush and that either was not interchangeable from each other. Appears one had the round contact and round brush and the other had "keystone" contacts (as stated on the brush box that Jay has posted) and the brush similiar to the New Day timer.

Thanks Guys. I thought it was pretty neat. Even has a screw to control cam end play. If it checks out with no shorts or opens I'll install it on Buster (my speedster).

Steve, The Tractor version had round contacts and the armored cable entered more at the bottom then the non- Tractor timer which had the armored cable entering near the control rod loop as in Gary's photo at the top of the thread.

G'day,

First posting, found reading interesting, sad some people get personal over trivial matters. Glad to see more are interested in "T"'s and history than calling names. Anyhow, I just saved a 26 engine and box from the scrappers and found one of these timers attached. Have not cleaned off the overgrowth yet, will now go and clean it off and investigate further. Have found other types on other engines, and now started a collection of various types. Not only can you have fun with the cars, the ammount of variety of components can keep you amused for hours and researching the history is also fun when not driving the T.
To all a Merry Christmas.
Peter.
