Cleaning up some parts I found a set of manifold clamps first time I ever saw 3065 on one side and USMC on the other, were the marines into Model T Fords? Bob
you never know what you will see on Model T Ford parts

Bob - That's really a "strange" one! I'm thinking that maybe it's just coincidence and might stand for something like U.S. Motor Car or something, because I just can't imagine any Marine Corps connection!

I have to say though, because I was a Marine from '63 to '69, and I have three U.S. Air Force Sons, and consequently, I take a lot of good-natured "ribbing" from those Air Force guys due to having been a "jarhead" Marine. I also take some ribbing from them due to their dad being an "old guy" with four old Model T Fords and one old Model A. I'd really like to have a set of those "U.S. Marine Corps manifold clamps" on one of my Model "T's! I think it would add considerably to some of the "heated discussions" I sometimes have with my Air Force sons! ......harold

Well, 3065 is the Ford part number for those, but I'm with Harold. I suspect the USMC stands for something other than the marines.

For giggles I did a Google search on USMC 3065 and found the following.

Those guys are veterans and deserve a commendation of some type :-)

Robert

Searched too on Google and found ref. to United States Machine Company.

United States Machine Company..ref. in 1892 book, "History of Lycoming County Pennsylvania," edited by John F. Meginness, and available online This company is described as "new", and the officers were Justin J. Pie, chairman; Charles H. Bates, secretary and treasurer; John I. Hales, manager; Robert Eason, superintendent. "They manufacture all kinds of woodworking machinery; they are also iron founders."

Could be the same USMC. ?

Possibly: United Shoe Machinery Company, they made a lot of stuff.
In '63 or '64 I worked on the construction of a new bowling alley, all the automatic pin setting equipment was supplied by them. The crates were all marked USMC.

Bob C, Shouldn't that be "menifold clamps"?

United Service Motors Co. An early division of AC Delco that had loads of aftermarket parts for all makes.

That's my guess anyhow.
