Looks like it works. Welcome. When you're able, let's see the 24. We like pictures. :-)

If it's your first T, you'll need these:

Thanks guys yes it's my first t I am a machinist
And a fairly good mechanic I have already read about the thrust washers and checking on that is on my list. Also not knowing the condition of the internal oil line buggs me so I'm going to pull the timing cover and try to clean it I made me an alignment tool.I will get some pics up later today.

Get to know Dan Hatch in Alabama. He is a machinist too.

But you will have to throw out some of your machinist habits when working on the T! Some things just aren't done to .001" +/-.0005" specs!
:-)
Oh and welcome aboard!

I got the t bug when my hit and miss engine buddy
bought a real rough 26 roadster pickup it runs and drives and is a lot of fun has the hill Billy look
So I wanted one the one I found was some weird yellow color but fairly straight and a good runner.

David D makes a good point about tolerances in a Model T. Rebuilding a T transmission to really close clearances is not always the route to go. Opinions will vary!
