Here is an item that is often overlooked when installing the rear bow on a '13-14 touring. To my knowledge, Jon Anderson, Randalls brother is the only one that makes that piece.14 top14 top

That is a tapered wood strip that goes on the rear bow, also used on the early 1915's. May also be used on all T's with oval sockets. I have a 14 and a Feb of 15 touring with this wood strip.

They were also used in the 1917 model year so Leon Parker is probably right - they were used on all Ts with oval sockets.

My dad recovered the original top on 1917 touring 63 years ago. One time when I was having a conversation with him about tops he mentioned that the top on his '17 has a tapered shim on the rear bow.

Do the 1914 Roadsters have them also?

My 1911 had one originally, and now it does again.

The roadsters don't use it.

Larry,

Thank You. Now when I start work on my 14 I can restore something else correctly. I always enjoy you informative and definitive posts.

Dennis

Lang's used to sell this piece. I bought and installed it when I re-did my '15 top.

What was or is the purpose of this strip?

Thank you Larry, l was wondering how it was fixed to that bow, that small add on piece certainly makes a difference to the curved look , for the moment l will leave mine as it is, but in time will add that piece to finish the rear bow.

Thank you for sharing that set of pics.

David.

I like this kind of information, and I wish more people would post information like this. I personally enjoy technical information, and I have been constantly learning about T's for over 50 years, and don't intend to quit! A dozen or so years ago, and friend of mine and myself started a small Model T parts business. Why? Because of so many bad reproduction parts out there. We've expanded a bunch, and our motto is "If it isn't as good as Ford made it, we won't sell it" It has paid off too. We only sell to dealers, so don't go asking for a list!
Larry
