Sometimes its fun to look at the T parts ads on eBay. I enjoyed this one. (rare)
You have your axle where most Model T's have the radiator filler neck!
Ebay isn't the problem. The problem is the non antique auto guys, women, and businesses that have the intelligence of a moron.
That's used on the famous Model T water-cooled hubs.
Be glad it's not stamped with Ford.
If I had a dollar for every time I saw a coil box in an antique shop with a $50 price tag, I could probably afford one.
My favorite ebay listing was a wooden electrical piston. Pictured was a, yes you guessed it Ford script coil.
Found this roadster advertised on T-bay
I just read the eBay description.
That "roadster" must have cruise control and a big gas tank to be cable to cruise at 50 MPH all day!
It begs the question, do the rad cap and hub cap have the same thread? Could you screw the two together? Could you screw a wheel onto your radiator?
My two favorite pet peeves regarding coils :
1. IT'S NOT A BATTERY !!!
2. THEY'RE FINGER JOINTS - NOT DOVETAILS !!!
I'm just tired of bidding against you guys and losing!!!!!
I don't think you'll have anyone bidding against you on the "Dust Cover" listed above.
Anybody know what "private listing - bidders' identities protected" this means and why it is used? I am of the opinion it is just a scam so the seller can bid an item in when it is not bringing what they want to get for it.
All listings are private bidders. As long as you use a different computer with a different IP address there is no way to prove anything. Unless the item shows up again right after the bidding ended.
Tim,In a word no! The radiator cap has threads on the outside and a hubcap/grease cup has the threads on the inside.The threads on the hubcap/grease cup's are very fine and long. Bud in Wheeler,Mi.
So, not knowing about 90 year old car part makes you a moron? What high opinion of people you have.
Chris - In this case your comment would be correct if you replaced the question mark (?) with a exclamation point (!).
It's not only car stuff, I am "into" American Flyer toy trains. I was looking for some parts the other day on eBay and there's one well-known dealer (with a very spotty reputation) who lists lots of parts there, for, IMHO, ridiculous prices. A one-foot piece of rubber tubing for smoke units is about $9 with shipping. Hmm, my cost for that same tubing is about 60¢ a foot (it's used for player pianos too). A pair of split rivets, like you can buy at most hardware stores for 35¢ each are around $7 from him. Just two examples! AND folks BUY them!! I'm in the wrong line of work, I suspect!
