This topic is NOT covered in the Model T Ford Service Manual, so I thought it might be helpful to some of you building speedsters. Modifications of this might apply to other similar hook-ups.
Since 1 picture is worth a 1000 words, I will save many words by showing pictures which pretty much speak for themselves. After much thought and trial and error, I was able to use the Model T steering throttle control on this set-up.
First, the steering side hook-up (fairly standard): (Note that I had to shorten the throttle rod because of the steering.)
Here are some pictures of the carburetor side. The Carter carburetor throttle is closed in the "up" position, open in the "down" position. A bell crank on a pivot rod was used to accomplish this.
I enter the other two pictures in the next post.
Since the Form does not like these in the same message, here they are:
Ok, I hope these are helpful to some of you speedster guys.
I will be happy to answer any questions.
Thanks for the photos Jon. I just did this on my Mercury and your setup is cleaner. I just hope the wooden steering shaft is for mock up.
I was thinking about keeping the wood steering shaft. You know, staining and varnishing it real pretty. It would match the firewall and floorboards!
I really like the woodgrain steering shaft "paint job "!!!
