Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2013: Oil Cans
Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Larry Smith on Tuesday, October 29, 2013 - 01:45 pm:

I received my Vintage Ford this morning, and enjoyed the oil can article. I did an article on Model T tools several years ago, and pictured in that article was one of two Maple City double script oil cans I have. I also have two double script Noera oil cans. I believe Mike Walker did an article too on oil cans a while back, and he had his re-copper plated and is beautiful. The thing that puzzles me is where did Ford suggest storing the oil cans? He didn't supply a bracket for the firewall. In a touring car, an oil can will fit under the back seat, but not all roadsters have a toolbox in back of the gastank for storage. Where was a roadster owner supposed to keep his oil can?

Are you asking for suggestions?? (G) Buy a bracket . I used to make them and those mounted on two upper bolts of steering column.

Larry -- You could always put stuff like that in the turtle. Isn't that what they're for? :-)

Larry,

Try this bracket from the vendors:

oil can bracket

It works with a 3" diameter oil can and mounts on the firewall under the hood. It keeps the can upright so the oil stays inside.

Larry,

I have wondered the same thing. Also have wondered if every car came with an oil can. If they did, I think there would be far more of them left. Even after the car was kaput, the oil can would be useful for the next 100 years or so.

Yes, but Larry's question was;

"...where did FORD suggest storing the oil cans?"

I'll bet the Chevy group could tell you where to put your Ford oil can!

Of all the 1920's Chevys made, I bet there's more of their oil cans remaining than the cars they came with.

Gentlemen, get you minds out of the gutter...I'm sure the Chevy group would tell you to put your oil can in the tool box!
