I received this request for Model T info today.
I´m contacting you to explain my request. I´m studying mechanical engineering at Seville University (Spain), and I´m doing the final project about the famous Ford model T. I´m trying to model some parts or group of parts of this incredible car and I need several information, plans and literature to do it. Could you provide me the plans, measures, dimensions and technical information about engine, transmission, brakes, gearbox...etc? I would be very grateful and I will give you my final project when I finish it.
Thank you very much and I await a reply."
It doesn't sound like the typical spam message, and there's no request for personal info, so I'm thinking it's a legit request. I know that many of you are much more efficient at keeping links to informative topics than I am, so I'm wondering whether you can provide some links to the info he's looking for which I could send him to help in his project. You may post them here or send me a PM. My email address is at the bottom of my profile page. Thanks.
I got one also. Sent him to MTFCA web site
If this person has access to a computer & the internet,
they can find the information a lot more readily than
by emailing you or anyone else by merely doing a search
Have you ever tried to find measured drawings of the engine and transmission on the Internet? Good luck with that. You might find bits and pieces from when someone here posted a "portion" of a print but they don't exist otherwise. I know, I've tried.
A rule of thumb I've recommended to my friends in the past. If this stranger came knocking at your door tonight asking the same question, what would you do?
Just opening his email could expose your computer to spyware and other hideous crap.
