Would any of you happen to have a quick photo of the radiator mounting hardware as it is assembled onto the frame. I have new hardware and a new radiator. Just want to get the right the first time.
Check this link
Note, the above link is for a 26-27 T. If you have an earlier one, you need to state what year you want to put the radiator on, because there were several changes over the years.
Sorry...this is for a 16 touring. In the kit I have, there are leather mounting pads.
Found it..using Mike's lead to Lang's.
Here it is in case anyone else is doing a search..
Mike Vaughn, what years does your photo represent because that is exactly what I need?
Howard - 1918-1925
1917-19 still use the leather pads, and of course, the radiator shells are different too.
Make sure that leather is rather thick since some of the repro's are thin leather or thin rubber and that will let the brass radiator sit on the rivet heads along the top front edge of the frame. If that happens the nice brass apron will be bent up and dimpled because the underside will be sitting on the rivet heads rather than the leather pad. The correct pad should cover the entire top surface of the frame under the radiator for proper support.
I did some checking at the archives last year, and it appears the nut for the mid '13 and earlier T's were the standard castle nut, brass plated.
