Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2017: Cool Model T display items

I once met a gentleman who had taken a trashed Model T transmission and made it into a really cool moving cutaway display. Has anyone else done anything like this with a trashed transmission, engine, carb or other cool Model T display pieces?

Built these models from old Model T parts.....




Making miniatures from Ford parts was a popular past time of parts dealers!

At the museum in IN, they had a neat display of the Rocky Mountain brake set up that really showed me how they work. Helped me visualize the set up.
But I'm no museum and I'm not selling parts or services, so I'm limiting my display items to the tools, the military field gear in the bed of the vehicle and some posters on easles. And I always hang around the car to answer any questions.

I already get accused of bringing the "ballast from the Titanic" with me to events. Can't imagine lugging a cutaway engine or transmission.

Rick.
I am a high school shop teacher who has done a complete cut away chassis. Engine, transmission, drive shaft and rear end. Put the rear on jack stands, turn the crank and watch all the many parts move. See The Model T Times magazine June 2015. All "junk" parts.

I have a T flywheel and transmission display I keep in the back of my TT when I go to shows. I welded a pair of handles to a transmission band so you can grip any drum you choose and turn the flywheel and see what happens.

The Piquette Plant has several very cool cutaways. If you've never been I highly recommend it.

Those are so cool. I have the equipment but none of the imagination to do something like that. Very creative. Very cool.

I would love to find a T or A cutaway engine. They don't seem to come up very often.

I always liked the bench.

Oh yeah, that looks sooo comfortable, especially after it has sat in the sun for hours on a 90* day.

Talk about a hot seat, and in shorts and a tee shirt, yipes!

Clever. Artistic. Imaginative use of otherwise unusable parts, but, ah, I ain't sittin' on that.

Sorry to sound unappreciative and or grumpy, I'll claim Cabin Fever. Bill
