One is a 14' Alumna mad...

Re: What "Parts" would I need to install a starter on my 1915 Touring

The first thing I would reconsider is placement of any battery under the front seat, the model T requires a vented gas cap, I will not mix a possible ign. (spark) source with gasoline fumes. I see you have a battery holder on your parts list, others have suggested the battery under seat option for m...
