Is there a listing anywhere of the thread size, length etc along with the cotter pins used for a T? I did a few searches and cannot find one.

I don't use the search bar, I use Google.

Just add "MTFCA" to your Google search words, for example,

"cotter pin sizes MTFCA"

:-)

Google USED to work well for me. Then they changed their approach and I no longer get the results that I used to. I even tell it mtfca forum like I used to, only now I get maybe four results from this forum followed by a hundred results in anything else.

Is there a better search tool out there?


Also. On the subject of hardware. I thought I had bookmarked one of several threads where Steve J and/or others said where to buy rivets online. I was fairly SURE I had bookmarked one of several such threads. But apparently I did not. And I need some rivets. I spent an hour with Google trying to find "Where to buy rivets, on mtfca forum" in several variations of orders and quotes etc. I kept getting the same wonderful Steve J thread about replacing the front cross-member in his runabout. But nowhere in that particular thread did he say where he got the rivets, no matter how many times Google suggested it.

Anyway, since this thread has become about both hardware and search methods, I figured I would ask both questions here.

So where online is most recommended for buying rivets?
Thanks all!
Drive carefully, and do enjoy, W2

Rivets comes from Big Flats Rivets Co in - Big Flats, NY: http://www.bigflatsrivet.com/

I always search google with the choice search words followed by site:www.mtfca.com That'll learn them to search in the right place ;)
The best search method is often to choose picture search at google, then you'll recognize one of the pictures in the thread you're after and gets there right away :-)

I just wanted to clarify something in Rodger's post above for anyone who hasn't used the tip he provided about searching...

The word "site" followed by the colon is what makes Google look at the web site named exclusively It is easy to miss since the www.mtfca.com changes color. The way to search for "cotter pin" on this site only is to type Cotter pin site:www.mtfca.com with no spaces after the word "site" or after the colon. This works to search any web page. Hope this helps at least one person. :-)

Rivets: What Roger said. Jim Dix, Big flats. He also sells the tools to mash the rivets properly.

THAT'S IT!!
Thank you Roger and Brian and Steve!

Now, if I could just remember what the other thing I was looking for a few weeks ago and never found so I could try out that search suggestion.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2

I have some original NOS cotter pins, and they were made to the length that Ford specified. Can't get them anymore, so just clip of what you need from a new one.
