Cylinder head, believed a '26-'27; but different cast markings than my '25 or '26 TT... Don't notice anything 'unusual'. The gas tank (from looking at Mac's catalog), is identical to what they show as '13-'20 Model T. Dimensions are 10.75"X28" long. See some rust inside, but baffles appear very decent. Any help before I move over to 'Classified'??? Just hoping I can help someone....
Will try posting the photos......
What would you want for the tank?
Sent you a PM for direct email of photos..
Finally got the re-sized photos to upload... Please share your thoughts. Thanks.
Wonder why the gas tank straps were moved to a side position on the tank.
Maybe the tank was used for another purpose?
"I dunno." That's the way I found it. It would appear that a cleaner and then sealer would be a sensible approach. I'm wondering if they're really worth anything before sticking them on 'Classifieds'....
The problems when trying to seal pinholes in a rusty tank can be almost endless, so many buys a new tank since they're available most of the time. High heads are very common since many change to a new high compression head, so it's also a hard sell.
If the tank is truly solid, it's worth some (though not really much since new tanks are $150) but the head would probably stay unsold at most swap meets and shipping is high for heavy items.. but you shouldn't throw it away, maybe someone needs it some time - I would never throw useable T stuff away ;)
The first picture, showing the cylinder head from the top, shows "in USA' under the #1 and #2 spark plug holes. It is my understanding that Ford had eliminated the "Made in USA" from the 26-27 cylinder heads, unless some left overs were used on TT trucks, or some models.
The cylinder head on my '25 has the 'Ford' and 'Made in the USA', plus a 'U' casting mark at the coolant inlet, while the '26 TT has no markings. The one I've found has the casting scripts, but with '15' at the inlet site. Any thoughts or ideas?
Regarding the tank, is it even advisable to plug the outlet and fill with water to identify if any leaks? (I'm hesitant.)
