Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2017: Have a ‘25-‘27 T? Let’s see your engine pans!

After reading through many threads on engine pans (and starting one of my own - http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/708324/815154.html?1512585954), there does not seem to be a consensus on when or even if the “2 hole pan” pictured below was ever used during production. The Ford parts books up through at least 1930 clearly show the passenger side pan having one large oval hole instead of two holes.

If you have a ‘25-‘27 T, which is when this pan is thought to have been used to accommodate both the vaporizer setup and the earlier carburetors, can we see your engine pans? Extra credit goes to anyone who can show us original pans or can say with certainty that the pans on their car were never removed/replaced.

Of course, any questions, comments, speculations or insults will also be taken under advisement.

Mark is correct. I think I posted something on this recently. Those engine pans get so beat up, it's really hard to find a good one. I finally sent a NOS double hole '27 engine pan to Tom Rootlieb, and asked him to duplicate it minus the vaporizer hole. He did, and it's on the car now. Whether or not he incorporated that change into his offerings is any bodies guess.

My early 26 with NH carb has a single round hole under the float bowl.

There was a very nice pair of '25-6 one hole engine pans on ebay this week that have been sold. They are quite hard to find.

Larry you are correct, Mark sold them, And I bought them. Hope they are correct for my '25. I'm going to use them even if they aren't.
