Here you go buddy, where does this Model T part go?
Thru hole with 1/4" x 20 thrd.
Nice try, nope
Hint: The part is not on the chassis.
Bottom clip for radiator mounting stud. Slightly off center.
Not with that thread, Jack. And judging by the size, I'm guessing that's what holds the screws Tony was looking for.
The '23-'25 slant windshield stanchion to dash oval head screws are held with hex nuts below.
But the upper stanchion to dash screw is impossible to get a hex nut wrench there, so this rectangular nut is used in that upper space, against the inside of the upper cowl and behind the upper dash. It locks in place as you thread in the screw.
Hey, unfair. I'm crying foul on this one!
Oh, wait a minute, you specifically called out Steve Jelf.
You got it Dan. I was able to find some NOS ones when I put together my '25.
got a PM from a lurker... and he had found the same on his T.
didn't want to spoil the fun for Steve, so here is my answer via PM:
I don't know where that part is supposed to go, but on my 1924 touring / pickup conversion there was one on each side inside the upper cowl, it acted as a nut for the top screw that holds the windshield posts to the dash. The bottom screw just had a regular square nut. The long end kept it from turning when you turned the head of the screw.
And note my photo showed the sq. nut (which is correct part) used on the lower screw, but my earlier post stated hex nut in error
anybody got a couple of these they would like to part with?
I'll bet you could make some fakes that would pass for originals.
Yep, that would be an easy DIY project. It wouldn't have to be perfect. Some of Ford's parts were not precision items.
Like nuts with the hole off center.
Well, this was a very useful thread for me, as my '25 has the wrong (earlier) windshield on it, so I would have had a hard time trying to put those top screws in with regular nuts!
Check with Bob Bergstadt. He probably has a pile of them somewhere.
