Can someone post some pictures of a original tank or Ford Factory Photos and possibly the basket? I am missing the basket and do not know what to look for and will need pictures to make or duplicate one. Were there any changes in the tanks from 1910-14 other than the later ones were steel and brass. Thank You it is always appreciated the information shared on the Forum!
David, Here is a picture of the John Brown generator on my 10 touring and the original baskets. I made up some new baskets from my originals that i also pictured. I have a few extras if you want new ones. Kim
There are multiple styles of the brass tanks that were produced by Jno Brown. Another Brown version has the gas feed line extending up through and then exiting the water tank on it's top, versus exiting the side of the lower tank. Also produced by Brown was a scaled-down version that was used on some of the 1911 Torpedos. The tank shown here is rare for a couple of reasons, but especially in that it still has the Brown equipment tag on the lower tank. The tags were soldered in place, and apparently did not stay put. Unfortunate is that there exists no comprehensive booklet featuring the many brass lamp and accessories versions.
Thank You Kim for your great reference pictures, also Scott for the gas feed line information. Why are there several different gas line outlet locations? Is one more common? Where the John Brown Generators used by other companies and not a Ford only tank?
David, JB generators are not real common on T's, I have one other one and it is exactly the same as the one I pictured. I have seen E&J and Corcoran generators with the outlet out the top, but not the John Brown. I will send you the basket dimensions tomorrow.
