Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2015: Need detail images of carb mixture rod in 25 Fordor

I am helping a friend with his "new" 25 Fordor. It had a modern carb so we rebuilt a nice NH to put on it. I see where the adjustment rod passes through the steel firewall via an oblong slot. Does it just bounce around there or was there a fitting to stabilize it and seal the hole a bit?

Would love a few photos of this detail please.

It just vibrates along.

I think there was a rubber grommet in the dash hole though. It helped to reduce the transmitted rattle. :-)

I found the remints of one (a rubber washer) on the rod for my 25 Touring and couldn't figure out what it was for until seeing a grommet listed in one of the catalogs.

Langs sells a piece of tubing about 1/4" long that goes under the knob. Be sure to get the correct adjusting rod, there are about 8 different lengths!

There are some photo's in another post that look like the setup in my 24 Fordor.

I have an early 26 Fordor and the hole in my dash is barely bigger than the rod. I have a grommet in the firewall I put in to try to hush it up.

I have a 25 tt and have made a brass rod with a a notch for each setting that works for my truck, stops the rattle from the fire wall

Dan, good idea. The slotted hole on this car is lower, on the firewall, not on the dash next to the choke pull. Next to the coilbox.
