Nice looking cars! But I'm curious about the 1912; in the photo of the engine, the engine pan bolts all appear to be upside down, with the castle nuts on the bottom. Did Ford sometimes install them like this? It sure appears to be an original, untouched engine but maybe not.

WTB Early water inlet

I'm still in need of an early style water inlet for my 1910 T. The early ones were a bit different than the later styles, mainly differing in the bolt hole area; the holes had a raised lip around them. If anyone has one or knows of someone with one, please let me know. Thanks! F000EE16-46B6-4CC5-852...

Scott, now I'm seeing the light! Just one question; I'm assuming the magnetic dial indicator base will set on the axle housing backing plate, with the indicator touching the tip of the threaded end of the axle shaft?

Thanks for all the input - I really do appreciate the help!

The problem with that washer is I used a belt sander to get it thinner, and it's not the same thickness all the way around. I'd rather have one that's more accurate.

Here are some pictures of the ring gear inside the housing. Does it appear that it's sitting a tad too high, or am I just seeing things? Does it look like it's sitting in the housing correctly?
