This engine was purchased by a friend at an auction not long ago and has a worm type gear on the end of the transmission. Any ideas as to what accessory it may have driven? The hogshead was missing when it was purchased.GearGear2

Rare gear but a transmission cover with the driven gear was on Ebay lately.

Thanks for the replies back. I've seen quite a few Model T accessories but have not seen a Model T transmission mounted speedometer before. I also check ebay as was suggested and found the trans mounted speedometer cover... first one I've ever seen!

See also similar speedometer threads at:

http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/179374/237856.html Which includes the patent information for the Patterson version.



Nash version -- but uses different gears but still in the transmission: http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/118802/168538.html

And I looked but I did not find it -- I thought I read a posting in the past where someone reproduced a similar set up back in the 1960 or 1970s? It had a two piece gear on the transmission shaft that tended to eat up the small driven gear.

Respectfully submitted,
