Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2017: Steering Column ID

I was looking at this steering column on the bay and they have it ID'ed as one for a TT truck. I know the lower bracket is TT (PN: TT392) but is the steering column itself from a TT? Looks like maybe it is an early 11-15 steering column with Brass Quadrant and Gear box. Here's a couple of pics I pulled from the auction.

It is an earlier column with a TT bracket and later steering wheel.

Yes, the cast brass quadrant was long gone before the first TT was made. This column also has no horn wire tube, placing it well before the first TT. My 8-5-28 parts book doesn't show any steering parts in the TT section, including the steering bracket. My guess would be that by the end they were using car parts for all the steering components.

Another example of using T parts to make up a usable steering column. A lot of parts would interchange and still work.

If I had to make a guess it looks like to be a real late 12 early 13 by the bottom where it mounts against the Firewall the hole is lower on one side thanks again Bill

My comment would be you could find the correct column and steering wheel for a lot less money. Even if you had to come up with the correct bracket that fits at the bottom.

No Mark - just the column is worth more than the "Buy It Now" price - hard one to find ! Most likely a "DB" gearcase & quadrant.

I don't need the bracket or the column. Got an extra, but just looked a lot earlier than what I have.

Funny. The price is absurd for a common '20s steering column, T or TT. But a fair price (except for the shipping cost) for a decent '13 column. Another example of an ebay seller demonstrating how little they know about the stuff they deal in.
Although, I must say, it is nice to have them finding localized parts and making them available to a wide audience.

I am not talking about what the column is worth but if he is looking for a TT truck then it's too much and that is how I read the question.
