Re: Help I D car.

Dallas nailed it as being earlier. I found a photo of a 1916 Premier and it is most likely a Premier running gear. I’ve cropped some details... the front frame horn, the four rivets on the side of the frame and the fender.

Re: Help I D car.

I see the mystery car is still a mystery! John, when you first showed me the photos over the weekend for some reason I had thought the engine resembled a Lycoming but looking more at your photos I think the straight six Lycoming were mostly flat heads. Wayne is right, it’s definitely a puzzler but I...

Re: Unknown Wire Wheels

Tim, your hubs look to be 2 piece, is that only on your rears? My hubs are one piece but maybe that’s because they are fronts. Looking at your photo it doesn’t look too likely to be able to modify a front into a rear. I suppose anything’s possible but looking at your hub it appears offset for the br...

Re: Unknown Wire Wheels

Here’s a photo of the back of the hub on one of the Spranger wheels. It has what appears to be a speedometer gear pressed on and bolted in place. It doesn’t look like a typical Stewart Warner speedometer gear unless it’s a gear for some other function?

Re: Unknown Wire Wheels

Thanks John,
I’m not sure if they were all designed or built specifically for the Model T but I did take one of these Spranger wheels and it mounted on a T front axle spindle perfect. I know it’s a long shot but hopefully I’ll be able to locate enough Spranger parts to complete a set.

Re: Unknown Wire Wheels

I kind of made it a little confusing by adding the photo of the Universal wheel that I got with the Sprangers. I wonder if the person who had these before was hoping to find another Universal and using them for rears, they would look a totally different but just a thought. I did take a wood spoke hu...

Re: Unknown Wire Wheels

Thanks Tim and if you still have any of the lugs or bolts it would give me something to copy. Even the rough hubcaps would be a start, I could get castings made from them. You’re right, the hunt is half the fun and looks like I’ll be hunting for a couple wheels!

Re: Unknown Wire Wheels

Thanks for the link Kevin, had no idea there were so many accessory wheels for T’s. I did get another odd ball wire wheel in the mix at the same auction. This one luckily still had the hub cap still in place. It’s a “Universal Welding Co” wheel. To bad I only got the one though. I guess I can either...

Wow, great id! I just searched Spranger and found a couple more period ads but no photos of actual wheels. I’m in the process of gathering up parts to build a speedster so I’ll be on the hunt for a couple of rears to match these. None of the lugs and bolts are correct so I’d be interested in what yo...

Unknown Wire Wheels

Purchased these 2 wheels at an auction a couple weeks back and have been unable to id them. They look a little like Hayes but have 6 mounting lugs instead of 4 and the outer hub is threaded to accommodate a 3” hub cap. The lug plates and bolts on the one wheel don’t seem to fit so I’m not really sur...

Re: Model T Tractor Conversion Hubs

Thanks for the info. Do you think these are Shaw or to heavy to be Shaw? I’m not familiar enough with Shaw to know if they made gears with a flange. Your right that they don’t even look like they were barely used. 7 tooth would probably increase your pulling power too.

Model T Tractor Conversion Hubs

These gear hubs came off of a Model T rear end I picked up with some other T parts. I don’t know what tractor conversion unit used these but they look a little like Shaw but I’m really not sure. There are casting marks on each hub G2067. They have a little wear but don’t look like they’ve been used ...

Re: WTB TT small differential housing

I’m with HPetrino on this one. I compared an early “17” TT housing with one of my late ones and there appears to be no difference in size, right or left. Is it’s possible that Rod needs a pre “26” T housing and typed an extra T in the listing? But then which housing... right or left or both? Somehow...

Re: TT Auxiliary Trans

I tried today clamping a u-clamp but you can't get it tight enough. When you go to shift there's a lot of torque from the shift knob and the tower slides left and right on the torque tube. Also, without the part the tower isn't high enough off the torque tube and the shift linkage binds. Not really ...

I recently acquired a Lincoln over/under trans for my TT truck but it's missing the part (or parts) to mount the shift tower. Without it I have no way of mounting the shift tower to the torque tube. The photo shows the tower and shift linkage that I have. Anyone know what parts I need to mount this?...
