Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2018: Page From 1930 Schrader Valve Stem Catalog

I emailed the Schrader company, telling them about our interest in original stems for Model Ts and they emailed back within a couple of hours with a scan of a page out of a 1930 catalog showing their 777, 888, and a couple of other stems.

I thanked them, then decided to push my luck and ask about the possibility of scanning the entire catalog, we'll see what they say. :-)

Per Schrader's recommendation, I also sent an email to the Tire and Rim Association asking them for information. :-)

Schrader emailed back and said that the 1930 catalog is over 130 pages long and too much to scan in its entirety - bummer! :-(

Good job, Mark. This page is a good resource. Thanks for doing it.

Mark,

You could request one page at a time. Sooner or later they are going to do the whole thing or tell you to jump in a lake.

They did send me a picture of the cover, then told me nicely to jump in a lake. :-)

There are 1953 and 1960 Schrader catalogs on Ebay right now...

I bought one labeled as 1950's, we'll see how far back it goes. :-)

The Schrader rep suggested I contact the Tire and Rim Association for further information, so I did and they sent me these five pages out of one of their period guide booklets:

I have all that information here, and have submitted the information along with how to properly install an original valve stem in a modern tube with a rubber stem. Neither editors were interested, so the article just sits!

Susan, I sure hope somebody associated with the Vintage Ford will dig out the material that Larry submitted and include it in a future issue! :-)

Note that the table shows that a Dill VS-6 is equivalent to a Schrader 777 stem.

Thank you this Mark! :-)

Mark, did you ask them about the possibility of making new 777 (or other) era correct stems and hardware? Looks like there would be a need for them. Dave

Is the 888 TR16 the correct one for the 30 x 3 1/2 Tyres and wheels for a 1910 T?
Thanks. Alan
