Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2015: Hood on backwards?

From an earlier post, someone observed the hood on a Model T was on backwards. Got me thinking. If on backwards, it would scoop air into the engine compartment and without engine pans the rushing air would pass under the floorboards. It might help cool the engine. I haven't thought it through completely, but what do you think of the idea?

The fit would be poor on a hood from '17 up as the top panels are wider at the rear than the front, even more so with the '26-'27 hood.

Even the brass radiator hood tops are a bit of taper, so they would fit poor too.

If you want more engine air....leave off the hood lower panels :-)


Working under this heavy load, the lower hood panels had to come off.... :-)

he air rushing by the louvers on the outside will create a vacuum which will pull the hot air from inside the hood to the outside. The cooler air blows in through the radiator. That will happen as the car moves along. When it is not in motion, only the fan will pull in air.

Dan,

That photo is actually a Roadster...He has all that hay loaded in the turtle deck. :-)

The guy is not carrying a big load.

He pressed the wrong pedal and backed into a big hairy animal.

Can you guess what will happen next?

I think he's pulling a 4-wheel trailer/wagon. If I'm not mistaken, that and another showing the trailer were posted before.

Something I just noticed. See the trolley tracks down the center of the road? If he gets too close, it will cause a big mess!

The T pulling the hay wagon or whatever appears to be a 17-21 T by the looks of the fenders, headlights, radiator and etc.

Makes you wonder how the piles of hay he's carrying didn't catch fire!

I was pleased to see the B&W picture above in a magazine I subscribe to. (HCC May) These photos get around. Seems like I usually see them here first.
