After what S/N did Ford start using the pinion support in 1909
You mean the Hyatt roller bearing housing? After #18000 march 17, 1910, according to Bruce: http://www.mtfca.com/encyclo/C-D.htm#ds1
I am asking about the rivited pinion support.My 1910 has a rivitrd clamshell rear,my friend has a 1909 with the same rear and he wants to know if it is correct.Thanks Phil
Philip, I think around #15,000-16,000. There were a lot of changes to the rear axle and drive shaft right around #15,000. I owned a 1910 touring which was a very original car , #17,565 that had the pinion support.
Kim,My friend has a S/N in the 8000s,he thought it was incorect. About what S/N did production move to highland park?Phil
When I toured the Piquette Plant, IIRC the guide told us that they made the first 12,000 T's there, in addition to the pre-T "letter cars," B through S Don't know the exact number of T's.
