. Playin' with the project , which should end up as a 24 roadster. Can't locate a lid for the coil box amongst my rusty bits... (got plenty of lidless coil boxes however :-)
Anyhow , being the genius that I am, I thought I will fabricate one but can't source the actual dimensions of the rake on the lid. Any one got the dimensions to hand, I would appreciate it if you could share them. I realise I can obtain one from aftermarket suppliers, but will have a go at this idea first..
I don't think anyone reproduces the 1918 - 27 coil box lids. Used ones sell in the $15 - $20 range so I can't imagine making one is a good use of your time. Here are some pictures, the ends with the integral latch parts would be most difficult.
This is a 1915 - 1917 lid compared to 1918 - 1927:
Most the vendors carry repros - :http://www.modeltford.com/item/5004.aspx,
I probably have an extra or two, if you need one.
"This is a 1915 - 1917 lid compared to 1918 - 1927"
1918-1927? 1926 & 1927 are different than 1918
If you had a TT with dash mounted coil box it would be the same (18 - 27). Yes the engine mounted box is different.
I should have said 1918 - 25. You are correct sir!
Don't make one! They are everywhere. The '24s still probably have the catch with the tabs. The '25s have the intregal one like pictured above.
My TT has a dash mounted coil box that I believe to be original and it's a 1915-17 lid. I never paid any attention to it, but it's one more clue that my truck is an early one.
Thanks for the photos. I never had straight the difference before and which years were which cover.
Thanks for all the information and pictures.
My 24 coilbox lid is, I believe, a reproduction. The car came without a lid 21 years ago when I bought it, so I ordered one from the vendors, likely Bob's.
