These are the adapter plates that are needed to adapt a model A transmission to fit behind the T transmission. I have never done this so I can't speak to the process. These seem very well made.

I can shed some light on these if someone has an interest. I made them 20-30 years ago.

Question: So this would be like adding a Warford transmission? but you need another clutch? trying to figure out how this would work...

I'm also curious how an A transmission compares to the Accessory T transmission in performance.

As I remember! The thick plate (1" thick) I welded two 1/2" plates together, replaces the main drive gear bearing (input shaft) retainer at the front of the Model A transmission. The input shaft of the Model A transmission needs a square machined on it to mate to the Model T transmission. The ring fastens to the bearing retainer at the rear of the Model A transmission. The intent was to use an extra half of the fourth main bearing that is found on the driveshaft of the Model T inside the rear bearing retainer, giving the ball on the driveshaft something to pivot against and then allowed the standard Model T driveshaft to bolt up as normal. A U joint needed to be made from the front of a Model A mated to the rear of the Model T. A support would be suggested under the Model A transmission to relieve some of the strain on the entire driveline. Making the adapters was the easy part. I never did the conversion, found a Jumbo!
