Wow.........Cool! :-) Finally!! The two (wick) like looking material in the center are actually 2 small stiff, straw shaped screens. Funny they didn't break off and get sucked down the intake.
How about another picture.

Any one out there know who made this Rocky Mountain type accy. brake? It looks like a Rocky Mountain, but its not. Never has been installed on a car, just sat around on a shelf and rusted.

Des Moines is the state capital of Iowa. This reminds me of a question I have. In McCalley's book, it lists production of Model T's in Des Moines. Is this true? and if so, where was the pant located? Maybe this part was manufactured at the same location.

Actually the Des Moines facility was just an assembly plant. I do not have the address but the Des Moines public library or public records office should have a directory of businesses during the 1920's.

The plant was at the intersection of Fluer Drive and Grand Avenue. The information I have heard is that it was an assembly plant into the early 30's. It was later the home of Solar Aircraft, and eventually was purchased by the Des Moines School District. It was the home of Des Moines Technical High School, and is now the Central Campus and district offices. There is a T on display there that was assembled at the plant.

I always wondered why that building looked like a factory. Thanks for the history.
