Hi, I am planning a short adaptor to enable adding an air filter. Does anyone know the ID of the carb inlet?
Thanks! I just got my first T and am so excited!
Which carburetor are you running? Vaporizer/ Holley / Kingston... etc. The 1926 engine could have all of those installed from the factory
BTW as we say around here Welcome to the affliction I'm sure you will have many more questions in the future this is the right place to ask them.
Andy, welcome to the T party. For one air filter mounting method, look here at 2:14 PM, Thursday, May 11. There are some measurements given. It's for a Holley NH. Other carbs may vary.
This being your first T, you will need these:
The same site will have a few other pages you may find useful.

Not sure which carb I have but it is a completely stock car with the mixture knob on the dash etc. it seems to have an inlet which is relieved on the inside to allow a tube of the right diameter to slip in about 1/4 inch. I plan to use a Briggs & Stratton pleated-paper filter with the foam prefilter sleeve as it will fit in the space available and is made for a 20 HP plus engine.
When I ID the carb I will return.
Steve, I found the pics of the air filter install; thanks! That looks like my carb as well.
Why do you want to install a air filter? Ford didn't put air filters on at the factory and they had a lot more dirt roads back then compared to now
The carburetors are not jetted to use a filter.
The T carb works quite fine with a air filter. Ford began installing factory air filters in 1932
Hey, I am an engineer and I gotta have plenty of clean oil and an air filter. Can't help it.
Anyway they should have had an air filter all along.
Oh Yeah, Steve, I have had all the Model T books for years, started when I was a teenager back in the early 1970s. Just never had a T.
Still, you can't have too much information. I participate in and rely on forums for all my Cars.
Steve: LOVE your blog! Thanks for Sharing.
I restored a 1948 AC Model B about 20 years ago.
I like air filters. I run this one except in winter, when I put the factory hot air pipe back on.
