location of the oil can

.10 each x 15 million cars. That’s a chunk of change they saved. I’m surprised they all had oil cans with them.

any Head bolt for oil can mount

Anywhere your heart desires, Colin. I rec’d some advice from our resident model T accessories expert Jay Buscio that I should make a run of oil can holders for mounting on a head bolt. The first batch will be done and advertised on Monday, so if anyone is reluctant to drill a hole in their firewall,...

Steering column

I’m not here to defend Danny. I did , however , re-read his post and he doesn’t say he cut the early column, and he doesn’t say he’s using a square column base. If those prejudgements make you feel better, then fine. I know Danny and he’s a nice young man very interested in Ts and will do something ...

Not nice

That’s not a very nice thing to say, George. Back in the teens and twenty’s there were thousands of Bugs , put together lovingly by young men desperate to have an automobile, and I’d guess most if not all were very proud of them. Assembled with whatever they could get their hands on. I have an ances...

Very early steering case,cap and quadrant

Got an early project? Here is an outstanding steering gear case, with domed cap, and brass quadrant showing very little wear. An overnight dip in cider vinegar, it shows it hasn’t been beat up or bruised, or worn out. Check out the quadrant teeth! All the steering gears are still inside. $175, deliv...

Re: brass carb

I had an 8 hp high wheeler and it had a factory 1” NPT schebler D. . The F is 12 Hp and takes a 1 1/4” throat carb. These are all pretty low rpm engines, but that is how the factory sized them. In my opinion it would be for about a 8-10hp auto engine, but probably not a ford application. A couple of...
