Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Ernie Spittler on Friday, January 13, 2017 - 05:02 pm:

Would someone with a 1919 Model T roadster with a starter & generator please post a picture of its dash and in particular, the area where the steering column passes under the dash. Also a picture of the steering column horn switch showing how it is mounted to the steering column
Thanks you for your assistance.
Ernie

I believe the horn button on my 1923 touring is the same one that would be on your 1919 roadster with starter. The 1919 non-starter cars used a different one. You can ignore the non-Ford speedometer strapped on top of it. :-)

Here is a photo of an original sedan dashboard.

Thank you Larry. Did the steering column pass through the cut out area on the left side of your picture?

I have not seen an ammeter with that particular face before, saying "Ford Motor Company".

I have three of those ammeters. They have a lot of pot metal in them, and I doubt if I could ever get mine to work, but since I don't own a 1919 I don't care! I don't know about the steering column for the car pictured.

Larry, Is that the Clum switch in the picture above?

Larry/David: That looks like the Clum switch in the dash of my 1919 Center door?? Chuck

Well, it sure looks just like the Clum switch in my '16 Dodge Brothers Touring!

Larry; I thought it looked familiar and remember our correspondence on the Clum switch back in 2014, thanks! The toggle switch was hooked up because the previous owners had lost the Clum key. I did not find a Clum key that matched the number of the lock; but did buy a Clum key on eBay and pulled the ignition lock “pins”out (saved them of course) and can now use the Clum key. A screw driver also will work, but the Clum key at least looks authentic.

Ernie:
Here are picts of the steering slot inside and on the firewall side. Steering column slot is left of the ignition switch.
My car is a 1919 Center door; so not sure if is the same?

Ernie: My 1919 is pretty much original. It did not have a horn on it; so not sure if that was an optional accessory back in 1919? I have an extra horn that I may put on it this winter. Attached are two more pictures of the steering column. Chuck

column 1

column 2

When I got my Clum switch, it had no key. I gave the number to Jarvis Erickson who is a locksmith, and he came up with a key. The new style 1919 switches also use Clum switches.
