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.
