While cleaning the rust off my replacement crossmember for the cracked one on my 19 touring car I found this stamp. What does it mean?

Interesting, Its amazing how many of the parts on the Model T's were farmed out to other makers. Kinda make me wonder how much of the car was actually made by Ford and what other parts were made by other suppliers. I know Dodge Brothers made some of the parts but thats all I knew about. Thanks Dan.

Yes, Ford used outside suppliers just like today, but really did on the T, make most of the parts, unlike today's Fords.

But the frames were just easier to purchase outside as they needed millions of them!


Piles of T and TT frames



But that huge factory made most all the other parts!

That's the first P&B I've seen without the circle. The letters are different too--Wider.

My 16 coupelet has a small flag stamped on the rear cross member, passenger side.
