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.

A
I posted this yesterday. Suggestions were: 1 Chebby 2 1940 or later.
Agree, or disagree?

B
These are 3" like the pistons, so I suspect they go together.

C

D

E
Drop center rim, diameter 22"; width 4/8"

F

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.

Evan

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.
