Here we go again. I had a search "advance" that I used for several years. It allowed me to view all cars from 1909 to 1927. EBAY eliminated that capability. I then manually grouped a search by selecting cars/trucks and then put the years in the from/to boxes: from 1909 to 1927. That required extra steps compared to the old advance search but it worked. Now that capability doesn't exist!!!! I am very unhappy!!!!! Additionally, there is no way to make a comment to EBAY.
I use Model T Ford and Flathead Ford for V8s both work fine most of the time. Every now and then they play with the system and things get screwy.
Enter model t Ford as your search in ebay motors. Then pick cars and trucks in the column to the left. Then a graph appears that allows you to enter the range of years to search. Enter1909-1927. Hit find results.
you may also wish to check number of cylinders 4 to dispose of the hot rods in Ed's search.
Ebay several years ago eliminated the wild card search, to the annoyance of sellers who sold highly specialized items (they thought the loss of this ability caused them to recede into the fog of thousands of new parts). For example, I had a 1956 Ford, so I used to be able to search B6TZ* and get all NOS Ford items for trucks that began with those letters (... the asterisk is a variable meaning give me anything after those letters) No more.
Here is a new term to throw around at parties; long tail search. Not as good, but useful
"Ford F100" (1956, 56, NOS, truck, pickup, parts) -lowering
This will return an exact match for "Ford F100, plus any of the terms within the parens, and exclude the term "lowering" in the hopes of eliminating the thousands of parts made for Ford truck using a Crown Victoria suspension, and therefore diminish hot rods a bit.
You can still, with more limited success, use Google to search Ebay:
B6TZ* site: ebay.com
Will get some, not all but some, more focused results
Please do not use this suggestion against me in your searching for hard to find T parts ;)
The thing is, while I have three T's I also have a Marmon and a great interest in most cars in the age of 1909 to 1927. We now must be selective and search individually each auto by name. Why can't they leave things alone when they add "new and better" things that they think people in the trade would like. What do the NERDS know about what we want??
After you click on advanced, go to upper left and click on cars trucks Date range option should appear. Worked for me this morning after I accidentally unpinned.
Jerry, They (EBAY) must have read my comments in the forum. We now have the search back. Hit EBAY motors, the from to years show up. That ability was missing for several days.
