Mislabeled as a Model T ? on EBAY located in Oklahoma ? Might be of interest to someone but my brief knowledge says this is NOT a Model T
1926 Ford Model T
1926 Willys Knight
Willys-Knight is an automobile that was produced between 1914 and 1933 by the Willys-Overland Company of Toledo, Ohio.
I think they said Model T to get it to show up in a search. This happens all the time.
Pretty weird choice of colors. No accounting for taste.
Just for my knowledge, look at the picture of the engine. It appears that a wrench plug was removable around the spark plugs ? What was that for ? Thanks go the original ebay listing to see a big picture of the engine small picture here
Maybe something to do with the slide valve engine. Knight's design had two cast-iron sleeves per cylinder, one sliding inside the other with the piston inside the inner sleeve. The sleeves were operated by small connected rods actuated by an eccentric shaft and had ports cut out at their upper ends.
What would, on any non-sleeve valve engine, look like a cylinder head really is not. It's an upper water jacket cover. Each cylinder essentially has its own unique cylinder head. The 4 big hexes you see are the nuts that fasten the upper water cover down to the tops of the heads and to the top of the engine block.
Thank you both for the education. So from what i have learned from the Forum is that Ford was one of the first to cast all four cylinders IN a block, while others basically bolted/attached cylinders TO a block
