I friend of mine was involved with a sidewalk project in Grand Coulee, WA. This is one of the items (in addition to numerous other cranks and cams) embedded in the old sidewalk.

There are about four hundred pounds of T cranks, rods, cams, axles, and other non useable parts reinforcing the slab in my second hoist bay. Ford steel still serving a purpose.

I found the brake handle for my Speedster in a chunk of concrete when they tore down my Grandfather's Garage. Both ends were damaged but it cleaned up enough to plate. I suppose there were other T parts there but the bottom end of this was the only part I saw.

When they demolished the bulk fuel shed next to the local saddlery cum canvas goods shop, I found numerous sets of unused top sockets which had been used as re-inforcements in the concrete floor of the drum shed. Those I could rescue undamaged came in mighty handy.

Front main and #1 rod bearing need some work. The others might just need polishing!:-) You will also need new timing gear and pulley.

Be careful not to step on the crank cracks; you'll break your mothers back!

I have a useable T front axle that a friend took out of the concrete when they broke up the fireplace foundation in his house.

I used unsalvageable T frames inside of a 9-foot tall concrete wall in one of my workshops that is back filled on the outside all the way to the top. The previous wall by someone else broke in multible places and bowed inward 8-inches because of all the dirt behind it.

The new wall is still perfect after 19-years.

When we dug the foundation for our barn - the horses are gone now and my T lives there - we found a wrecking ball and two 10-gallon milk cans. No T parts sadly.
