Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2017: Cut-a-way Model T Engine & Transmission

Does anyone have instructions and pictures on how to make a cut-a-way view of a T engine & transmission? I'd like to make one as a training and educational aid for newbies in our club. My intent is to make an "operational" T engine so viewers can see the piston and valve movements, as well as a "working" transmission.

Any ideas on how to do this?

Jim my high school shop students made one. Piece of cake!. Look at some examples on line to help you decide where to cut. Get good metal cutting blades and a reciprocating saw. Also you can buy hole saws that cut cast. The iron in the engine is soft enough to easily cut. Clean up you cuts with a die grinder. We left off most of the piston rings to reduce friction.

Here’s a picture of the cutaway at Greenfield Village.

The cutaway we have at the Piquette Plant has a wheel mounted on a stub connected to the output shaft of the transmission, so you can see what happens when you press the pedals. We also disabled High Gear to make it easier to turn with the crank on the front.

The cutaway engine makes it easy to demonstrate the Model T transmission is a "semi-automatic" not a "stick shift".
