Seen on local craigslist 15 touring.
Maybe a variation of an intake whistle?
Intake manifold whistle?
It will mess up the mixture !
I think Ed is looking at the Super Large horn or siren sitting on top of the spark plugs
Looks pretty tight there
No, not the horn the other silver thing. But the horn does look huge
Ok, i see it now its a horn/whistle
If you're asking about the silver horn-shaped object on the intake manifold with an operating wire going to the firewall, that's a vacuum horn/whistle, usually makes a "Woop-Woo" sound & known as a "Wolf Whistle.
......actually, I'm more curious about all that "stuff" near the air inlet area of the carburetor! Just above is what might be an "add-on" dipstick, but there are two items, one which looks like the raw end of some sort of pipe, and something else near the choke bell crank. (???)
Well, in looking closer, I guess the one item is a sort of cumbersome looking handle of a fuel line shut-off valve. But I still can't figure out the thing that looks like the end of a piece of pipe or something!
Look at the bolts that were used to attach the carburetor to the manifold! I guess,....."whatever works", right?
Those carb bolts are clever. From the discolouration I wonder if the one nut is tacked to the bolt, effectively putting the bolt head on an extension. Remember that thread about how much of a pain it is to get a wrench on those bolts? Not anymore!
Oh, and the horn looks a lot like mine. I have no idea where my horn came from but from the size of it I'm not sure I'd rule out it being made for the Navy.
I also see from the looks of the fan belt wrapping tightly around the pulley, that one accessory absent from this Model T is a water pump.
All I can say is- what an abomination!
Look at all the odds and ends in that engine compartment...
My head hurts just looking at all that stuff.
It looks like a piece of modern rubber heater hose. What it's doing there between the fuel shut off valve and the carburetor air filter, I have no idea.
Looks like this guy really enjoys his T. At least it's being used and not sitting in a field, rusting away.
Is that some kind of air filter peeking out from behind the heater hose?
I think that "pipe" by the carb intake is a covering over the fuel line, which appears to exit and make a hard right into the cut-off . I believe the silver thing is a wolf whistle because you can see the "bell" end. It would be screwed into a threaded hole in the intake. (I have one mounted that way).
