I don't believe those perches are 1915, in as much as they were still using the early style shackles with the oilers in them.
Smith, you might be right I am not on here to argue, I was not in the Denver assembly plant in 1915. I would like to give and example however I had one of the would be exerts who spent days and days in the Ford archives studying obscure ford history for some reason tell me that my center door front axle was wrong because The radius rods were on top of the axle. My 19 center door was very unmolested and I have a very early photo of it with the early front axle. Also I did a lot of work on another 19. Both the new owner and I knew the original owner and he never changed one thing on the car except to put locks on the hood so no on could mess with it when he drove to town. Horrors that 19 also had over the axle radius rods. IT LOOKS TO ME LIKE THE Denver ASSEMBLY PLANT WAS USING UP THEIR EARLY STOCK. I have 52 thousand mile on MY CENTERDOOR since I have owned it and how many mile before, who knows because it did not have a speedometer when I bought it, and you know what THE SKY DIDN'T FALL!!!
The perches are 1917 or later. Not an argument, just information.
Wow!! another expert, How long have you been working on Ts. You must have been working on Ts for a long time to be so sure of yourself to criticize some one else's post. The oilers on the perches are the Manhole type with the spring in the Center, NOT THE TOILET SET COVERS. I have only seen these on 15 and 16 Ts. But what do I know, I sure don't process to be an expert. Anyway surprise they are still for sale for some reason, want to make a guess WHY. You can call them any year you want.
Spring Perches still for sale.
Dave, it looks like you're right and I was wrong. I searched all the references I could think of, and all I found was this little bit in the encyclopedia. It seems early 1915 rear perches had no oilers and later ones did.
I'm sorry for assuming and not checking. I should have done my homework before commenting, not after.
