A Warford mounting bracket just sold on ebay for $170 plus $30 shipping. I was bidding on this item in order to get the clamp plates and U bolts. Anyway that's a lot of money for a bracket...someone must be serious about mounting a cast iron Warford.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Model-T-Ford-Warford-Mounting-Bracket-/231930903722?hash =item360028bcaa:g:V58AAOSw9~RXJr3K&vxp=mtr
Anybody have those plates??

It is a nice heads up to see what those plates look like. I have used Warfords for many years with makeshift mountings.
Thanks
Rich

Here is what the plates look like installed. They are quite simple as are the U-bolts.

I guess if I wanted to pay $75 for the plates and U-bolts I would have increased my bid on ebay.

Hi Richard and others...

I have an original cast-iron Warford on the way to Edmonton now, destined for my '24 Speedster.

It comes sans mounting brackets, and I would appreciate any suggestions for, and photos of, homebuilt mounting setups for these units.

Thanks in advance!

You can fabricate a pretty nice mounting bracket using a Ford pressed steel running board bracket.

Thank you Phil and Dan. I don't have an extra running board bracket but can surely scrounge one without much trouble.

I was a little surprised to see the transmission hanging from the bracket is this generally the case? I was expecting (for no particular reason) more of a belly strap like the aftermarket transmission supports.

I have this one, it's marked on it that it's for a TT, looks similar to the one that was on ebay.
I don't want to sell it as I have a CI Warford w/it.
Chris, can give you dimensions ifn it will help.

Besides the Warford mounting bracket, does anyone have the dimensions, drawings or clear photos of the bracket clamp plates and U-bolts?

Hi Ken;

Please post the measurements for the bracket you have, I'd like to make something similar and it would be a big help.

Thanks!

Hi Ken, yes please on the measurements, sounds like several of us would appreciate them!

I've got a cast iron worford on my Speedster that is coming off this weekend with the entire shortened driveshaft and lowered rear axle. Standard set up without the Warford is going back on. I believe this has a Bubba Bracket holding up the Warford as it is not attached to the frame, just laying ontop of the lower channel, although there is one hole in one end of the bracket, no hole in the frame. Wanted it to flex?
When I get it all rolled out this weekend, I'll take a better look at the bracket and bolts and be happy to post photos and measurements, if helpful.

I have two warfords and both have the TT mounting cross brace.
I do not have the frame mounts.
I won't be using the cross brace as I'm putting my warford in a car chassis.
If someone is after one if the braces, PM me.

Chris Otto,
It sounds like you have the cast iron Warfords if you have the braces (brackets). Even if you put it into a car chassis you still need the mounting bracket. You can modify it to fit under the chassis rails for a passenger car. If you are thinking of hard mounting the Warford to the T transmission by removing the front U-joint extension...don't!!


Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Robert Brough on Friday, May 13, 2016 - 10:02 am:

Forget my "brace", it is a Bubba part. Just U shaped settl with a notch cut out for the exhaust pipe to pass under and two large bolts connected to some sort of holding bracket to the top plate of the cast iron Warford. Not anything that would be of help to anyone but I will leave it in place on this Warford and driveshaft and rear axle combo in case someone wants to do a speedster or Doodlebug with it.

As requested:
Dimentions
I made a mistake, I said it is a square channel and it's actually a U channel.

John McGinnis:
Correct, I have (now had) two for the braces for the cast iron Warfords.
I am not going to direct mount it without the u-joint.
However I am going to use a different style of cross bracing.
