What model t years have the same fullblock ? i owe a 1924 touring and would like to buy a centerdoor or doctors but if i can interchange the parts i thing is a great help .
As far as I know at least from 1911-27,all blocks were same length.
IF so , what about body and rear axle ? Any main parts that were the same ?
You probably have a starter and generator on your 1924 touring. If you get another T from 1919 through 1925 most mechanical parts and assemblies will interchange with no problems. Pre 1919 engines do not have a generator provision.
26-27 bodies and frame are different.The body mounts on frame are pretty much the same in older years.
It just depends on how precisely you want one block to match another. '26/'27 are different, but work just fine for almost any earlier year/model. Their most obvious difference is the bolt holes to attach the top of the hogshead to.
Any 1919 through '25 model year block will work fine for a '24 (they have no bolt holes for the hogshead, yet do have the generator mounting place). Through all those years, there are only one major visual change, and a few minor changes. The most obvious change was the switch from two small valve side covers to a single longer side cover. The crossover while both styles were used was unusually long, that change occurring between 1921 and 1923. A late '21 with the long side cover is basically no different than a July '25 without the hogshead bolt holes.
The engine serial number is only really important in how you and your local licensing jurisdiction use it. And is the only major difference between 1922 late style and 1925 blocks.
From the factory, most running gear including the wheels were almost unchanged from 1921 through 1924. For 1925, only the optional 21 inch balloon tires and wheels were different. From 1919 through 1920 only minor changes in engine and rear end. But entire components interchange just fine.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
Any complete engine will replace any engine from 1909 to 1927. The all mounting points in the frame and to the drive shaft are the same. The biggest difference is the pedal spacing for 1926/27 you would have to make new floor boards, the distance between pedal slot is wider for the low pedal. While the early hogs head (1911 back)is different, the blocks them self will mount to any pan.
THANK YOU VERY VERY MUCH ! You guys are Fine People . Thanks Wayne for all the details .
im going to keep on looking . Someone said you can never stop looking into t models to get ?
thanks Mark !
Nobody mentioned expense. 1919-1925 engines are most plentiful and likely to cost less than earlier ones.
Very important . Thanks Steve . Thats all good news . i would like to get a 4 door or even 2 but has to be a "hardtop" , since i already got a touring and havig the chance of use the same parts on booth i think makes it a lot easier to buy , stock or simply interchange parts .
