Would someone please post a photo of the correct carburetor stove for a late 1913.
I don't have time until next week, so if you still need a photo I'll post it then. It looks the same as a '15, but has a raised seam front and back.
The only ones that I know I've seen are the 1921-1924, and the 1924 and later style. I would greatly appreciate some photos.
They are not shown in either of Gail Rodda's books.
Charles, hopefully these will assist.
I am of the thought that numerous variations were available, some carry overs from the 1912 cast forms, this style is a folded thick tin.
Here are 3 images of a carb stove I believe is correct for my 1913 Ford. It's engine was assembled on August 13 of that year. Neil
I agree with David that there are minor variations among the stamped sheetmetal carb stoves that are correct for the 1913 year. The cast type to which he refers would be correct, if at all, only on very early 1913 Ford in my opinion.
...and one more comment: my stove has the raised metal seam that Larry mentioned. neil
Thanks, that helps. Now all I need to do is find one!
They are out there, why not try Don Lang, Glenn Chaffin, they generally have a pile of original bits and pieces ready for sale.
Nice intake manifold David.
Neil, thats a pretty 13 Touring you have in your profile.
Good morning Glenn, why thank you, l have one of yours on all of my T's, nice work.
The correct stoves for 1913 are out there, but I bought 3 of them on Ebay before I was satisfied that I had one that was truly functional without extensive sheetmetal repair. Beware of the sheetmetal portion of the stove that butts up against the exhaust manifold; it is often in poor condition or even near non-existent due to rust out.
Dave: I appreciate the compliment. I spent some time studying the images of your engine and am impressed...it is very authentic to 1913.
Thank you sir.
The photo that Neil posted is the correct one. So now I don't need to post a picture!
I guess you got off easy, huh?
Well, thanks for the original offer. Now I know what to look for!
A few more:
Gosh Randall, sometimes you really impress me! That is a beautiful hot air pipe. Wish it was mine!
Well, Larry, even a blind squirrel stumbles on an acorn now and then...
Yah , but MINE all seem to have worms in them ...
Bumped to the top for a friend to easily find and review.
David, Glad you are pleased with the manifolds. Keep the orders coming. Obama has killed my retiremunt fund and I need the income to survive. Forget retirement.
G'day Glen, have more in there with you and Dave right now, send them as soon as you can...
Merry Christmas ( happy holidays ) to you all.
Like many Model T items there were several manufacturers making similar but different parts. Here is another one from 1912 - 13:
