Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2015: 1912 timer rod drawing
Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Bob Richmon on Tuesday, September 22, 2015 - 06:40 pm:

I'm restoring a 12' Touring and have the correct timer rod swivel joint that goes on the bottom of the steering column. I do have the linkage rod, but it's really bent up and the threads are messed up where it would screw into the swivel joint. I measured and can buy the 7/32 rod and have a 12 -28 die to thread the rod. Does anyone have a drawing or good picture of what the original rod looked like? also does anyone know the correct type of 12-28 nut (plain hex or castle nut?) that went on the swivel joint? I see where it's drilled for a cotter pin. I also need the same info for the carb rod to the column. Thanks, any help is appreciated! Bob

Bob
According to the original Ford print the swivel and rod thread is 7/32-32.

You may want to discuss this with John Regan. He will know about the type of nut and shape of the rod.

Thanks Ron, you are correct, I measured again with a 10X loop! I did as you suggested and called John, he set me straight! Hope to see you in Hershey.

I use a coil nut to lock the swivel in place after adjustment. I have one here that had vibrated to the point it will no longer hold the swivel on!

Thanks Larry, I ended up getting some from Gail Rodda, he makes them from steel.
