Hey Guys, looking for a picture of the correct right side (under the carb) engine dust pan for a 1925 coupe. I searched the forum but have not found anything. Any help would be much appreciated.
I believe the vendors catalogs have a pic of it.
The reproductions are generic for 19-27 and while they do fit the space, the opening for the carb drain bowl is also generic, a big long football oval.
The '23-'25 uses a depression like bowl centered under the NH carb so that the drain plug is reached. The '19-'22 has bowl positioned more forward, as those used the offset bowl drain carbs.
Here is only pic I have now, the pan is on the car. This view is under the car, but maybe you can see the depression 'round cup' for the drain hole.

The correct ones are NOT available. Recently, I took a NOS RH dust pan with two holes in it to Rootlieb, and told him I wanted the same exact thing with only one hole. I now have the correct one on my car. I told him he could keep the pattern for future use, but whether he did or not is not known. The last ones Ford made had two holes, to accomodate both the standard carburetor, and the vaporizer.
BTW, the picture that Dan Posted has the 1924 style engine pan on it. The '25-6 rh engine pan are all by themselves.
Thanks much Larry and Dan. I found a two hole pan so I'm assuming it will fit ok even though it's not original.
Is this the two hole pan that Tim is talking about? I saw this on T-bay, is it a reproduction, or original? If original, what years would it be correct for? Thanks.
Here are two pics of the engine pans (dust pans) that came off of the 24 Coupe oct serial no. that I inherited from my Granfather in 1958.
He bought it in 1942 so I am thinking they are original. You can see the carb side has the round bowl on it. Langs advertises the ones he has for this era are dupicates. But they arent like the carb side like this one is.
As I mentioned before, the engine pan posted above is 1924, and most likely 1923 too. I suppose a complete article could be written on these. The two hole one pictured above is the '27 version, which was made to accomodate the L-4, NH, and also the vaporizer.
Mark, that is the two hole pan I won on e-bay. I've been looking for 2 years (unsuccessfully) for the correct pan so I settled for this one.
