I need help with the position of the Spark lever arm ( the little arm next to the lower end of the steering shaft when the spark control is at it full up position. Also the routing of the timer adjusting control rod. Thanks

This is fully advanced spark, the opposite of your description. I installed a #6-32 screw and lock nut in place of the rivet to make it simple to remove the steering column next time.

Don't forget, on the early cars the small spark lever down at the bottom is bent, so when the U-Joint is inserted it is horizontal, as opposed to the later ones that are not. If the timer rod is the right configuration, you shouldn't have to ever remove it.

The timer rod runs over the steering shaft but under the water pipe all years all Model T's.

When bending the rod to adjust timing, be sure it won't contact the #3 terminal or screw.
