Was sorting some stuff the other day and found some one piece valves, ford script with the two holes in them, Did not know Ford ever made one piece valves. Any one know anything about them? I will try and get pics in a day or two. Dan

Late 27 MAY have had these, and probably all engines made up till the end in '41.also service parts produced after the end of car production.

Yes Dan, do that. I'm with you. Never seen a valve like that! Perhaps it's something they did in the late '30s or early '40s before they stopped stocking T parts.

Actually, one-piece steel valves were used on 26-27 TT trucks, while the two-piece valves continued to be used in passenger car prodection.

Respectfully submitted,

Thanks Trent for that info. I assume that you got that from the Research Center, was there any reason why they did that? Thanks, Dan

Bruce's documentation , page 572 of his Big Book, states letter from Fargo branch, and May 31, 1927 letter to all dealers, "All-steel valves now used in all production except those for export."

Fargo branch letter: "...special all-steel valve for Model T cars and trucks in now available in service stock.....all steel valve is much superior to the present type and we therefore recommend its use in your repair and service work".

"much superior" That cuts it. Thanks to Dan T. By the way, hope to see you in Hershey. And, the New Hiway to Memphis is now open. No more taking the Coalburg Road cutoff. Dan H.

Dan,

You are correct. My source was a document in the Benson Ford Research Center listed under factory number TT-532 (T-532 is the motor assembly for a standard Model T). I recently ran across the document in my collection, but now I can't lay hands on it.

Respectfully Submitted,

Trent Boggess

I had a 1928 T engine that I picked up on my way through Ne about 40 years ago that was used as an industrial engine for errigation. It had the all- steal Ford valves in it.
