My 27 touring has a 2 piece rear floor board. Is this correct? The catalogs show a solid one piece rear floorboard and the 2 piece floor board. Which one is correct? I have been told that the one piece is correct, but why is there two in the shown in the catalog?
I need to replace the rear and I cannot find any specific information as to the configuration.
I cannot say for sure what the original floor board was like, but I put a piece of wood between the two brackets which are attached to the body I made two halves of the floorboard which each go halfway over the piece in the middle. I screwed the right half down but the left side is loose so that I can easily remove it to service the battery.
I would like to know the answer to this also. It may be another of the running changes made to the Improved Models. My very early 1926 non starter touring, made in calendar 1925, has the center wood support. It appears to be there for supporting the two piece floorboards. Mine is also screwed down on the right side and left loose on the left for battery access. But my very late (next to last month of production) 1927 touring also has the center wood support. My floor boards have been changed thru the years, but the two metal "tabs" that the center support is bolted to are "factory" riveted to both bodies. The following is just my opinion (worth very little) It may be that the one piece style is a later aftermarket repro type of thing, or Henry decided toward the end of production, that a one piece floor board was cheaper than, two riveted tabs, a bolted center support, and two separate floor boards.???
My 27 Touring has the cross pc. and two part floorboard.Correct?
The Body Parts and Price List Book reprint , March 15, 1927 states the rear floor board for the '26-'27 touring is a 2 piece assembly. There is no picture.
