Are most parts the same for tt if they say year and t.or do they have to say tt.
The engine, transmission, and front suspension are the same. The frame, rear suspension, and rear drive train are different. Look in the Ford parts book. The TT parts start on Page 51.
And the handbrake cross. The neutral cam is taller.
Steering column to frame bracket, front spring ( more leaves), front motor mount ( longer threaded part for the additional spring leaves)
this goes without saying but the rear leaf springs are different too.
where to get parts from
What parts are you in need of ? There are several of us around that handle parts.
Some parts are available new and used from Lang's and other parts dealers. Other parts are only available used and you have to get them from individuals and from dealers in used parts. See the catalogues.
front and rear shackles.front perchs,steering block that goes to frame etc....
If TT parts are in need I carry used, some NOS, and reprod. Have lots of TT parts firstname.lastname@example.org
looking for gas tank and wiring the same.
What year TT? The 26-27 TT continued to use the 25 style fenders, hood, hood shelves, gas tank, firewall and wiring. The only difference would be the tail light wire (longer).
The steering block is the same. The front perches and shackles are the same. The rears are different--Larger spring. Also, the front spring clips are larger (more leaves).
Ken, the steering block is not the same. The TT frame rail is taller, so the block needs to be taller, or make a shim for it. That's what I did, I think I made one from a piece of 3/16" steel flat bar if I remember correctly. That was easier than making a new block. It's been a few years, but that is how I remember it. I don't have my parts books handy, but I'm pretty sure there is a different number for the TT block. All of this is depending on my memory(scarey!) Dave
You may be right Dave. I just thought since the bracket mounted the same way, the block was the same. There's only a slight difference in the TT bracket and the car brackets. Come to think of it, the block may be thicker.
I think Layden B. is correct about the front leaf spring and front motor mount for later TT's, but I'm pretty sure the early TT's had the same parts as a regular T. (Like Dave, I'm depending on memory (scarey!)).
Another couple of things that are different if I remember correctly:
1. The hood latches are longer due to the frame difference.
2. The side chassis to engine blocks are taller (like the steering block).
Also note that some things TT changed over the production years, such as the running boards, the rear chassis cross member, and the addition of a battery box.
Just another comment about the front spring:
I checked and my TT (an '18 I believe) has a 7 leaf front spring, which I think is original and is what you'd expect in an '18 T. The TT parts book (Effective March 15, 1927) lists a nine leaf front spring and front bearing and spring clip, but only for 1926-27. There is no listing for earlier TT's in the book, which leads me to think (which is what I believed in the first place) that earlier TT's used the same front spring assembly as the T's.
I could surely be wrong, but this seems to be the case.
Henry, the hood latches are the same for both T and TT's. The bolts that secure the hood blocks (which the latches mount to) are longer because the frame is taller. Dave
That's what it is, David. I knew it was something in that vicinity. As said in another thread, gettin' old is a beach! CRS gas a firm grip!!
Henry, I know what you mean! Dave
One thing ya'll haven't mentioned is the sheet metal shroud below the radiator through which the crank handle inserts. Due to the thicker TT frame, the sides of the shroud are 'longer'. . .
And Henry, the 7 leaves of my '14 TT are TAPERED
George, your tricking us, right! a '14TT??
If you have a '14 TT you have a rare truck indeed!! In fact, I'd dare say it's one of a kind.
Yeah, fellows. . . .. I admit it
