Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2017: What thread on timer and carb swivels?
Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Gary London, Camarillo, CA on Friday, September 15, 2017 - 03:53 pm:

My understanding is the original timer swivel is a 12/32.

Is the carb swivel the same?

Does anybody know what the thread is on the repops available from Langs? I've emailed them and called but have not received a reply. Hopefully someone here knows. I have what I believe is an original swivel and a couple of modern ones from McMaster Carr, but I don't know what (if any) will work with the ones from Langs.

Thanks!!

I am traveling and do not have the original thread Ford used at hand. Another of those oddball size threads Ford used. It's very close to 12-32 and will easily work. I do not know the size Lang's sells.

When all else fails try the parts book. 7/32 x 32
Within thousandths of #12 and as Ron says, 12-32 works fine.

The 12-32 thread is the same as on the coil points.

If the one Lang's has is not correct, I may have one. Let me know.

Someone correct me if I'm mistaken but the carburetor end of the throttle rod didn't utilize a "swivel" - I was under the impression that the swivel was on the spark lead at the column.

True it is called a "carburetor pull rod adjustment".
An illustrated parts book is a wonderful thing.

Steve-
You are correct, however both rods use the same thread.
The spark uses a swivel, the throttle uses a threaded "L.
I have my threaded "L" end of the throttle on the carburetor end, where it is easier to adjust, but from what I have heard Ford put the throttle adjustable end on the steering column.

Can anyone verify that?

I believe I posted a photo of the carburetor pull rod end within the last two weeks. While at the archives last week I made an important discovery.
I think my photo shows the early and late styles. The early one with the flange had the flange dropped on March 14,1914. There was nothing in the changes that noted when they stopped using this part, but it is believed to be at the end of 1915, as that is the last date I saw on the drawing. The part was obsoleted on 4-15-20.
