Is the 26-7 lever [heavier- thicker ]than the early ones??
Not that I know - I think the only difference is the lever was bent slightly outwards towards the new drivers door.
You mean there's even LESS room for my left leg in pre-26 T's? Yikes.
The seat is higher in pre 26 T's, usually making it a little easier to fit the left leg.
I have one different from others , it looks stronger..could this one be aftermarket
??It has no FORD marking like others
I was curious about this, so I measured five. I measured the front-to-back thickness ten inches below the rivet on all of them. They varied across a range of .15". They were .735", .785", .800", .840", and .885". The .800" was on a 1926 RP project. All the others are on earlier vehicles. Of course I have no idea whether any of them are original or replacement.
I'm thinking about bending one to gain a little room.
Perhaps the TT brake handle is made a bit heavier as it is several inches longer ? The chassis is deeper, so is longer by that extra depth.
If the T T uses a longer one, it is not this ,as all are the same size
Thank you all for input-- Lorenzo
The parts book shows no separate brake handle for the TT. The one on my TT project is no longer than the others.
Only part longer for a TT is the clutch throw-out lever attached to the H.B. cross shaft.
Cross shafts where different sizes
Not sure when but changed from 3/4 to 13/16
Three different release lever springs and possibly three different release levers along with a heavier stalk?
Personally, I find this quite interesting. :-)
