Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2016: Q: What year is this transmission cover
Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Robert Blanchard on Tuesday, March 15, 2016 - 02:00 pm:

My 20 has a 23 engine, and it has this transmission cover with an oil line... Is this a later year cover or an accessory add on?

Thanks in advance



Side note: Why does the site rotate my pictures?

An accessory add on. Looks like a Ford Faithful", except that most of them had the name stamped onto the cover. They were a common and very popular accessory in the 1920s, and are fairly popular still.
While most of them had the name on them, I have seen a few that did not. That does look like the actual Ford Faithful stamping (like a few others I have seen), just without the name. I don't know what the story is behind them. Earlier? Later? Cheap knockoffs? I don't know. But I would use it. They do seem to be a pretty good thing.

As for the picture rotation? Are you using a smart phone?
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2

Robert,

Interesting. On my Windows laptop your picture is sideways. On my iPhone the picture is vertical.
