Now that Bob's is on the way back I would like to suggest new products for his inventory that there is a need for. I know there has to be a demand high enough to warrant the expense to tool up.....But if we do not ask we may never get the products produced.....My first suggestion 1915 Horn button.
How about high hood radiator shells. I certainly do need one. Seems strange that the low hood variety is available but not the other. Harv
Bob's has been going through a rough patch. Hopefully he's on his way back.It will take several thousands of dollars to tool up to make just those two items. How many do you think he will have to sell,just to recoop his investment?Would you pay $500 for a new shell?
Low shells are out coz of t bucket industry and you can find high shells there as well usualy had cut the neck hole not 100% correct but good idea if you cant or wont look for orginal they are still out there
This thread is just to see what people need reproduced....You never know who may be able to help the hobby along
Spring U bolt sets, Both front and rear. No one makes them. I would think there could be a big call for them
You're right, Will, it's difficult to find good ones without stripped threads. And modern U-bolts are very different.
Even more difficult than finding the early-type U-bolts for the front is finding a late-style front motor mount with good threads. I've often had to cut them off and weld new bolts onto them to make them serviceable.
Read Langs catalog on the '15 horn button. We make 'em, but only the button.
The button is easy to get. The whole horn button that mounts on the steering column is hard to find. It took me a year and a half watching Ebay to finally get one for my 1916 touring car.
Stakes for a TT 'Ford Truck' flatbed. I have one, need seven.
George: TT Stakes PM me with a picture of what you are looking for. I may have some. Dan
I will be making the shell for the 15-16 horn button, in the works, Bob
Also the new transmission bushing's from the Ford prints and right material will be coming soon
Bob -- I hope you'll include the switch contacts in the horn button shell.
how about reproducing the 26-7 drum taillight?
If you are going to reproduce the whole assembly you will make a lot of those of us who have Canadian T's.
There would be a very good market for that item.
The battery horn on the Canadian cars used the earlier 1915- 17 type of horn button assembly.
The tabs or lugs what ever they may be called were modified to be able to be screwed to a modified steering wheel nut.
Reference pictures attached.
Good original components are very hard to find now.
Best Regards, John Page, Australia
Here are a two more pictures.
That should read ( Make a lot of us who have Canadian cars very happy. J.P.
I think the only difference between the USA one and the Canadian Steering wheel one is the tabs are bent down for the Canadian version.
However, I've not had one in hand to check my theory!
That is the only difference. The two pictures above are what we use. I would think that if you were to bend the tabs on the U.S. version it would work fine for our Canadian cars. Our problem here in Australia is finding the inner contact piece and it would appear that you fellers in the States are having the same problem.
Another thing to mention is, Larry's horn button sold by Lang's is correct for our Canadian cars. I have one on our Fordor and it is an exact copy of the original. J.P.
Not sure if someone stopped making them or not, but I tried ordering 26-27 brake cams twice and they are always out of stock....
Spring U Bolt Sets. Front and Rear!!!
Brackets for Ford accessory stop/tail lamps.
