Here's another old FORD parts vendor catalog's from our collection. I thought some of you might enjoy looking through it. It's interesting to see what was available for the Model T 5 years after it hit the market.
The catalog is 40 pages long and each photo is around 1.2 mb in size. Here's the link to the catalog.
Wow Jay – That book is a Keeper – think of what their 1927 catalogue would have been like.
Looks like they have moved though . . .
What a great catalog....
On page 17 there is a mechanical starter for the Model T. I have a similar one on my 1917, except it is foot operated. Yes, there is room down there for a fourth pedal. It will start the engine but not from cold, but is very useful if I stall in traffic, don't have to jump out to restart. As for installing in less than one hour - it takes me that long just to remove the radiator...
Jay, another great catalogue!
What a huge number of parts and accessories after just 5 years.
On picture 19, that Mayo dash oil gauge. Does that get hooked to a mag post oiler or something? I can't see it being able to show the level in the sump.
Christopher, The Mayo type gauge was used on a number of T oil accessories. It shows oil flow passing by not sump level heights. Hence no flowing oil means low sump. I don't know if a mag post oiler has enough poop to make it through the gauge and up to the front bearing however a transmission cover plate oiler does work with one of these installed on the dash.
Here's the mayo ad Christopher is referring to
Here's a similar gauge from the Strong oil pump accessory I posted a while ago.
Here's the link to the ACCESSORY OF THE DAY POST on the Strong oiler from a while back.
