This isn't really a parts-for-sale-troll as much as maybe fishing for suggestions.
I have a few 'extra' parts that I might like to sell to fund repairs and updates... But, maybe some of these you might suggest I keep. Some I probably won't sell but thought are curiosities, and someone may have more information on them ...
Seems like the base ought to be magnetic, but it may have lost it's magnetism.... OR (haven't tried it yet) .. it's base might be an electromagnet, and energized when connected to battery.??
Gosh ... I HOPE I never break mine! Looks unused.
.. but this is the only part I have! I think it was 'set' to 1924 at one time :-) (the birth date of the car ...)
I converted the roadster to a pickup .. but might be worth keeping the turtle deck .. but I don't know if it is original or not. It's in nice shape, but kinda think it is a newer replacement.
One of the things I'd really like to do is get operational tail/stop/turn signals on the ol' girl .. I thought of electrifying this one, and adding one for the other side? I have a small round 'tuna can' tail light that was on the tire carrier also. I have it mounted, but is only a tail light... no brake light or signaling yet.
I also have a couple spare front axles, but those are probably 'local' pickup things.
If anything here is worth a bit ... please PM me .. or I'll just put on Ebay. I pretty much doubt if I will put the turtle deck back on, and therefor, likely not the spare tire carrier. If it's original to the car, then I probably 'should' keep it. How do I tell if it's at least period or not? The wood frame it was mounted to was wrapped in what I think is aluminum .. so I'm thinking it was re-done sometime way back, and they put a replacement deck on it. Who knows.
Thanks for looking, and any suggestions you might have!
Russ Furstnow's book shows the 160-D speedometer head. The colored mileage dials were introduced in 1923. The purpose was to tell you when lubrication was due.
Most of the Clymer spotlight is in nice condition. However the handle is broken and difficult to repair. It is also missing the mounting pieces that hold it in the windshield (it would require cutting a hole in the windshield). Maybe you have the mounting pieces? They may say "FYRAC" on them. The plating looks really nice and what you show would be great for parts to combine with another that is not so nice.
The other spotlight looks like a nice one. Ones with mirrors on them can be desirable for the mirror use.
The turtle deck looks like a 1924/25. I would think it should be kept for the car along with the spare tire carrier. But those are probably the most valuable parts there if you needed the money for the car.
It looks like a few nice pieces in the tool box. I don't know if that hubcap wrench fits a T or not. Some similar to that do, some do not.
It might be nice if you need that many radiator caps some day (lots of model Ts!). Hub caps don't look really nice, but may be desirable to someone with a brass T.
The Schrader tire gauge is a nice piece for show, but fairly common. And most of them do not work anymore.
The oil tail-lamp also has a fair value. But nice to have.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
The speedo look to have the numbers painted on the spools. This indicates that the spool are pot metal. These are usually un restorable because the spools 'grow'. I have three like it and on all of them the odometer is cactus. Russ sold me a nice one with the plastic engraved spools.
Hope this helps.
