Bill,

Jack’s method will work. A longer version from the Aug 1922 Service bulletins is shown below. The bulletins are available from the Vendors hard copy “Model T Ford Service Bulletin Essentials”, CD, and from the MTFCI DVD set, and also to MTFCI members on line. A handy book that started in 1919 and covers the later cars in detail but is still helpful for the earlier cars also.

If the top hasn’t been up or down much – having an extra person can make it easier and you may need a drop of oil in a few spots (not much) on the hinge areas.





Respectfully submitted,

Hap Tucker 1915 Model T Ford touring cut off and made into a pickup truck and 1907 Model S Runabout. Sumter SC.

That looks like a younger "Uncle Jack" demonstrating his method in figures 83, 84, and 85. :-)
