Swedish photo. Looks like an early chassis with the rubber ends on the spark and throttle levers. The rear axle moved forward w/o any connection to the engine, when the chassis was moved they probably just let a horse pull it.

kkkk

Full version of the photo - it says they were cutting wood roof shingles in Aspa, Orebro county, Sweden in the 30's.

llll

That is exactly what I thought the picture caption said! :-)

Great Picture Roger, A very elegant solution.

But the hogshead looks like the common shape - ?

The common shape inspection lid came in june 1911 and the hard rubber knobs on the levers disappeared some time 1912, I think, so it may have been built between those dates - or maybe it was a total mix of T parts from the vicinity if it was 20 years old by the time of the picture?

Didn't think about that. Seeing the early column, rear end, and possibly water pump engine makes me daydream about finding one of these in a barn.

It wasn't Ford's type of early water pump on this though, Ford's pump on the first 2,500 was placed in front of the engine.

It's hard to see what type of ignition it had, no coil box? Probably a chain driven magneto - as I've seen on many T engines here that were used as stationary engines.
