Is that my 5 ball? Way too shiny, I'll never get the rest of the car to match :-)

Yes. Yes. They are hard to find but would be easy to make if you could find that perforated brass , Stuart.

As we live in a world where perforated brass is just a CNC laser away, it seems to me they should be easy to reproduce. How many screen-less five balls are there in the world? Enough to justify someone doing a short run?

I know a few folks here and elsewhere who would simply drill the holes in some tubing.

Donald Hess is the one who reproduced those flame arrestors. He use to sell them at Hershey. I think they were used for marine applications, I don't think they were used on model T Fords. While it's true that all the 5 ball 90 degree intakes were threaded, those flame arrestors are very rare. If they were supplied with every early 5 ball, I think there would be many more around. Just my .02.

They don't show up in the parts books for 1908/10

I am not familiar with the diameter or length of this screen but this looks very close to a Model A Ford gas tank screen. I would bet with a little modification/machining and brass plating it could be very close and useable until an original is found.

I think I bought mine from Don Hess. It was a long time ago. I think the Model A gas filter is much bigger.
