Here’s an interesting vintage accessory for today. Does any one have any experience with running one of these?

Here’s a link to the patent data on goggle.

That's one way to keep a good gap on the magneto.....

I wonder how long they lasted?

Probably not very long unless you kept them well oiled.

With those slots for the mounting screws they may be adjustable for wear. Oilite bronze would go a long way toward solving the wear problem. Jay, thanks for posting. Bob

I found one in an engine that I tore down for rebuild a few years ago. It seemed to be working. With a stock felt front oil seal, you wouldn't have any trouble keeping it lubricated.

Oddly enough, I listed it on Ebay last week.

So Eric, how much commission do I make? just kidding! You should include a copy of the ad I posted here for the new owner when the item sells.

Eric...so, can you measure how much has worn away?

I have one of those too. A simple quick fix for the era. Also have a couple of center main accessories that are meant to accomplish the same purpose.

I have seen some large leather washers made from old thrashing machine or sawmill belts used for the same process. The pulley had to be removed to install. You can r&r it on the later pans. Art in Pahrump

There is a certain Model T supplier that sells a reproduction of this "shim" for $19.95.(#3030shim)
His place is in Wichendon, Ma.

Jay, you've got some great stuff - I look forward to seeing what turns up next. Now that I've figured out this photo downloading stuff here is a pic of one of my display cases. This all started years ago with my spark plug collection. I started picking up countertop display items, and assembled all of it into a recreation of a circa teens auto parts store. I'll get more pics out later but wanted you to see some of these T items.

Great stuff Jay, obviously a long-time collection. Mine began many years ago with a spark plug collection that grew to include display items. Now it's all assembled in a recreated teens auto parts store. I'll get more photos later but this is a good sample. Terry

Loooks like you don't have it down yet! Use a back slash\ not a slash/ The one you use is over the enter key. The brackets you use are left of the back slash. You need to use the shift for the brackets. \image {picture} do what I did except leave out the space between image and {. Also your picture needs 9"width and 72 resolution.

I looked up the patent on Google. Interesting to look at.
