Merry Christmas - belatedly - to all my Forum friends. It might be a dumb question but would the repop T coil box wood kits fit a left-side-of-engine Fordson coil box of 1922? And the coil box lid looks just like a '26-'27 coil box lid ??
I use repopulate set in my fordson box back in the 90's when I restore two fordsons
OK...... Repopulate set?? Bob, could you be a little more specific? I don't have any wood at all. Sheet metal in good shape tho'
George, I had a 26/27 coil box and bought a Fun Projects coil box kit, but I had my eye on my Fordson coil box that was right next to it. I believe there was very little difference to make them work in a Fordson box, so when the time comes, that is what I will be doing. And yes, my 26/7 top worked just fine on the Fordson box.
Yes damn auto correct feature repop
Yes the late top gasket will work
Bob, I think your auto correct feature has had way too much coffee! It's way too hyper!!!<g> Dave
Thanks Bob and Chad. This time I will get a Fun Ptojects coil box wood kit because there's no hood to protect the coils from the weather. On all the other T restorations the plywood wood kits were good enough.
George, That is why I went with the Fun Projects kit. This one was for my T doodlebug, and it sits outside year round. I wanted no issues with the box. I was still worried about water getting in, but the lid does a good job of protecting things. I do have a hood on mine though.
Here is the link of my box.
FYI, may be some useful hints as I had some small issues with my metal box and hand rivet gun--NO ISSUES with the actual product. Go to Harbor Freight and buy the heavy duty rivet gun or borrow one if possible, I can almost certainly say you WILL need it.
