Is it the "Model T Ford Service" book with 296 pages.
Yes. The vendors has it failed under #T1 for a good reason
Bruce McAlley's encyclopedia is also very valuable if you watts to know what difference year Model T's looked like from the factory.
Has it filed
(will I ever learn this phone's weird autocorrections?)
While yes both book could/can be refers to as the Model T Bible, I think I have seen as many if not more references to the "Model T Ford , The Car That Changed to World" as the "Bible".
Ether one will work depending on the need(s) of the flock!
Old testament and new testament?

Its the Model T Ford service manual.
Its amazing what you can learn about a Model T when you read and study the main instruction book for a 'T'.
If all else fails re-read the Bible (T-1) and then proceed.
You must have three or four copies. One next to your bed, for reference, one at your desk or easy chair where you might watch TV, one in the bathroom, next to the toilet and then one or two in the shop, nest to the "T" you are in question of having the problem you are trying to solve. NOW have I made my self clear, O.K. read it again
I have two copies an arm length from me, one of which is in new condition. Enough said!!!!!!!
And if you want a really good copy of the Bible, get a hard cover one. The pages are larger, the type is larger and easier to read, and the pictures are actually clear, not black like the paperbacks.
Anybody got a copy yet of the new larger version reprint? I think its soft bound. Somebody mentioned it on the forum a while back.
Bill, I have a (T1) in the bedroom, in the bathroom, in the car under the seat, and a very greasy one in the shop, as well as an original hard cover copy in the literature collection, is that enough or should I also get the one for the living room. I currently have my Langs and Macs catalogs by the recliner.
Jim, The T-1 book sold by the vendors is the "Bible" most people speak of. It is basically a step by step manual telling how to completely take a Model T apart and put it back together bolt by bolt and cotter pin by cotter pin. It gives all the specifications of the engine and how to overhaul every component of the T step by step. It was written in the day of the T as a manual for the "common man" to work on and fix his T. A must have.
Donnie: I believe it would be a good idea as you would not be far from a copy. Just an idea.
Have a great day. I have thought I might get another copy just for good measure, maybe one to take withe me at lunch time. Good Reference manual
In the words of the famous Steve Jelf "Get the book. Get the book! GET THE BOOK!!!"
Back when I first restored my T in 1970, the "Model T bible" was the T-1 Model T Service Manual. I have not looked at it in years as my new bible is the online version called the MTFCA Forum with plenty of disciples to guide me. Jim Patrick
