Found this brass cap in with some parts but not sure exactly what it's for.
Also, had this switch which is very similar to a T switch. Not sure if it was used on a Fordson tractor or what. Any help would be appreciated.
I dont know what the cap is for but I have seen them with out the holes opened up I think it may have been a safty fuse sort of thing to keep the tank from blowing
Switch not Fordson.Many inexpensive cars late teens-twenties used same basic type switch Ford adopted.
Here is a similar switch. This one has a plated handle. There are many variations of these. This is a good place to show them for identification.
Fuel tank cap with lead blow out plugs. Common on diesel truck tanks years ago.
Thanks to All for the information.
Sorry but do not know what your switch is.
Yours would read; On-Dim-Off-Park
The later 1926 and 1927 Pontiac switch reads:
Thanks Layden. I will mark it that way.
Eric, I recognised the diesel tank cap with the lead blowouts. Can you explain the purpose of them? I surmise they melt out in a fire, releasing pressure in the tank and the chance of an uncontrolled explosion.
Allan from down under.
Allan, that is correct. They allow the tank to vent and the fuel to burn out slower than a tank rupture and large explosion.
