Today I sorted parts from last weekend's auction. I know T mechanical parts pretty well, but not much Model A or other cars for the period.
So here are some pictures. Let me know if you can identify anything.
I posted this yesterday. Suggestions were: 1 Chebby 2 1940 or later.
Agree, or disagree?
These are 3½" like the pistons, so I suspect they go together.
Drop center rim, diameter 22½"; width 4³/8"
C looks like a regular Model T starter? ( I don't use them, so I'm not familiar with minor variations)
D is a carb adjuster rod for 1926, the lower end towards the carb.
6 looks like a regular water inlet but why the screw.. Model A?
"D" looks like part of the carb. adjusting linkage for a '26 - '27 with a Holley Carb.
"F 6" looks like a Model A coolant inlet at the left side of the block. The extra bolt in the center is the identifying piece.
"F 1" looks like the shift handle for a left side shifter for a Ruckstell.
6 looks like a regular water inlet but why the screw.. Model A? the screw held the wire to the generator.
#3 Looks like a modern flat serpentine belt idler or tensioner pulley, the sealed bearing is the clue here and it doesn't look like it has much of a crown.
#4 is a set of milking hobbles, hooked on the hocks to prevent kicking
B These piston pins have a groove in them for a clamping bolt, what is the diameter?
F#5 Looks like an ignition coil with a wire-wound resistor on the back
F#7 looks to be a generic starter solenoid
F#11 Looks like the input shaft cover for transmission. The throw-out bearing carrier would ride on the machined snout
F#15 Looks like a lower radiator outlet with drain
Sorry that I can't be more help.
F-6 Definitely Model A water inlet, screw hole for clip that holds down the starter/generator loom.
7 Looks like a Ford Starter relay, about '47 to something, very useful item for lots of stuff.
11 looks like the snout for a Model A Tranny. 12 MIGHT be the remains of an A coupe door window mechanism.
13 COULD be a Stanley valve handle????
Evan is correct on #4, I used to work for a small dairy farmer back in the late sixties. Dave
#2 is very similar to the door handles on my '25 coupe, although I'm not sure they are correct. They look like '26-'27 handles, not sure if they are original or not. I think the same ones were used on a few different bodies/years. Some pictures at different angles may help identify some parts. My door handles have a black insert in them. Dave
F9 might be a generator adjust bracket for an early Powerhouse Model A generator?
The wrist pins in B look like Model T parts to me. The pistons in A already have wrist pins in them.
I have seen the Remy ignition coil you have marked "F5" used on early (c.1923) Chevrolets.
13 looks to be a seat adjustment knob.
Yes on #4 but my grandfather called them "cow kickers".
#7 is a Ford/Mercury starter relay (often called solenoid) for '37 through '50 cars, and to '51 trucks. Ground the small terminal to activate.
Others got the A water inlet and cow shackles correct for sure.
F-5 is a common type of ignition coil used by probably dozens of marques in the late '10s through late '20s. The few other things I am familiar with have already been sufficiently discussed.
The pistons and wrist pins are interesting, I am only somewhat familiar with Chevy pistons '30 through '60s, and don't recognize these. No Chevys I am familiar with used notched wrist pins like a model T. But there are a lot of Chevys I am not familiar with.
#3 is a back-side idler for a serpentine belt. I'v used a bunch of them.
