We just got our First Model T. She Runs ! Radiator leaks badly. Pulled the radiator and found these under her. Any idea what these are or where they came from ?
Here She Is !

I'd like to point out the castle nut used in this illustration for the stud, is not the one Ford used. The correct nut is shorter.
Larry, is the nut itself shorter, or just the castellations?
Another old thread:
Jeff. That whole radiator mounting kit is available and necessary to allow the radiator to move slightly with the flexing of the car. It can be purchased at any of the Model T Auto parts supply retailers we use. Jim Patrick
Can't Wait to get her out of the garage. Maybe this weekend !
