I have this quadrant with riveted case and flat-end levers. It certainly looks original to me. The quadrant is steel, but a similar, but thinner shape to the earlier brass one. It is not just a worn-out one, there are still notches.
Has anyone else seen one like this?
Neat. I've never seen one like it. I have several 13-14 and 15 columns,some of the 15's are pretty early.
i have had a few like that in the past, we always called them early 15 s for bulb horn cars. charley
I saw one on an original '14. I figured it was from the time when Ford was transitioning into the '15 model year.
Looks like the one on my parents' 1914 late-September-built car.
Dad has a 15 roadster early like right around 700000 and it had one with a riveted case and a quadrant similar to the later one with a turned up edge and we replaced it with one a bit later just to please judges. I will never do that again.
Yup, late 14, early 15, I have had 4 total.
They are shown in some Model T books.
That is what is on my July 2nd motor build number 14 Touring.
