Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2017: Wood block size.

I need size and hole location for wood blocks that go on frame in the rear of a 1927 touring.
They sell whole sets for about $50. I want to make my own out of oak that I have. Do not need the whole set. Lasng's had them on backorder.

Give me a couple hours and I can measure the ones I have downstairs.

1x3-3/4 high x 5" long

The long edges have chamfers and the hole is central on the top 1" wide edge.

These are new ones from Bob's.

I can photo later if you need it.

And these sketches and dimensions of the other blocks for the '26-'27 might help too.

Make them out of Maple, much better than oak for this part.

Phil sent me a PM requesting photos of the blocks I have for my '26 Touring. As luck would have it, I was getting ready to paint these so they were handy.





There are four blocks with two holes. They go in front of the front seat and under the front seat behind the curtain pan. The last two sit with one hole sit vertically at the rear inside the body sills.

Are there similar blocks for a 1923 runabout?

Mark - no, '25 and earlier bodies are already built on two long "wood blocks", so it's not needed :-)
The blocks in the 26/27 T's fills up the u-channels in the steel body subframe under those bodies so they can be bolted to the frame without crushing them.
