Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2014: Timing gear covers
Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Tom Strickling on Tuesday, January 14, 2014 - 05:31 pm:

How many types of Model T timing gear covers are there after 1920. Just starter and non starter or are 26-27 different??


How about generator mounts are they all the same??
Thanks TOM

The 27 timing cover no longer had the fan bolt on it.

26 too, I believe. The fan was mounted on the water outlet and adjusted by an eccentric, so the timing cover no longer needed a fan adjusting bolt.


1919-1925 Tab & fan adjusting bolt above oil filler.


126-1927 No tab & bolt.

Okay,...I'll be the one to ask,......what does your photo of what looks like a valve spring compressor (???) have to do with Model T timing gear covers Dave?

That tool is a "Stevens" Model T exhaust manifold holder - holds the manifold so one can install the intake without having two people/four hands !

There were at least 6 unless the early water pump car had a different one and then there were 6. The factory number of 690 came later and the D suffix would indicate then 4 of those. 1910 used a coil spring fan tensioner, 1911 used a vertical bolt tensioner, early 1912 oiler timer used a cover with no oil filler hole, 1912 and later used the cover with no generator mounting, 1919 then had a generator mounting...not sure what happens in the middle... and then the last one had no adjuster for the fan at all since it used the eccentric.

I meant to say in total - not just after 1920 and I also mean there would be 7 at least of the early water pump car used a different one than 1910. Gotta pruf red beta.

Don't forget the change in them they made in '15. With these you can use a modern seal. In '17 they increased the length of the oil filler spout so you could pour oil in easier.
I'd love to have one of those manifold holders too, but don't know what that has to do with a timing gear cover!

Dave,

Nice Stevens tool. Wish I had one. I use a furniture clamp whenever I want to remove only the intake manifold.

Bill
