I am giving a talk on dating Model 'T's to the Veteran Car Club of South Australia and am seeking a decent photo of a pre-2500 water motor. Does anybody have a decent photo I an use in mu Powerpoint presentation?
Sorry for the spelling errors. I am seeking a decent photo of a pre-2500 water pump engine suitable to show non Ford 'T' people, but all old car people, some of the differences on these cars. A photo from the side with the bonnet up is more than OK. Any help would be very much appreciated.
When do you need the photos by?
What type of resolution are you looking for? I would guess a 600kb photo or better would give you a good presentation – but different screens / projectors can either use a lower resolution photo ok or some may need an even better resolution.
Below is a thread with some photos I posted in the past. I should be able to get you a higher resolution copy – but not before next week as my normal computer is not available at the moment.

A good picture is found in Tin Lizzie by Stern! Bud.
Got several from a car under number 300. Will have to wait till I'm home to get them on here.
There are some good photos of Mark Cameron's 1909 #1001 here: http://www.jonsmithers.com/1909ford/index16.html
Here is a link to many early T photos, in this group are some good shots of the type this thread is seeking.
Here is another one.
You can see why Henry redesigned the cooling system.
This is 904. It has a leaky water pump right now, I am going to engineer and install a modern shaft seal.
Thanks every one, a really big help. I can now "educate" some non-Ford people on our great cars.
Are those square headed, threaded, plugs on the underside of the head, like the square headed, threaded, "freeze plugs" that are on the side of the block on the early engines?
I know they are plugs from when they shook the sand out of the cores, but I guess I have never seen the underside of a waterpump head.
