I have a AC Speedometer that I want to install on my 15 Roadster. Does anyone have any pictures of how it is installed?
A; do you have the rest of the parts and B: you will have to mount it in an instrument board. While yes you can use it and depending on which one it is most were much newer then 1915.
They have a real bad case of the internal pot metal frames coming apart. Before you to all the trouble I would open the case up, if you haven't, and check the insides. If you have the straight thru drive it mounts on the drivers side front wheel if it's the Model T AC.
It's not just the Model T version that has the pot metal frame.
Thanks for the information. I have two heads took the first one apart and you are correct the pot metal is a mess. The other looks real good inside and moves freely. Now I just have to determine if it is working correctly. I have the cable housing but the cable is broken or I would attach a drill motor to it and see if it reads.
I forgot yes I have everything except the cable.
Do you know if the cable is available for the AC speedometer?
The outer cable housing should be about 72 inches long. When I had my AC speedometer I had the inner cable made by our local speedometer repair shop.

AC didn't make speedometers to fit '15s, and besides, they don't look good on a Ford anyway, only Chevy's!
You are correct that they did not make them for the 15 model but I have one and not about to fork out the bucks they are asking for one that is nearer to a 15. Ford stop installing any kind of them at all during the 1915 period.
AC made speedometers for Model T's that is a fact. If Richard has one and wants to install it, I say go for it.
They look just fine and were a period item, ok maybe a little later but back fitting to a 15 could have been done and I am sure was.
Larry you are correct they did not make them for the 15 but did make them for later models. As far as not made for 15s neither were starters and several other items that people have installed. Again show me a completely stock T. I do not believe there is such a thing.
