Re: 1923 model t headlight switch?

The headlamps would have used the "lever" on the ignition switch to turn on - dim one way - bright the other way.

I believe they're a later production as in '25 - '27.

Re: Why does transmission engage when starting engine?

With this statement in mind, "The clutch fingers set screws are all the way forward." I'd venture to guess that you need to read the Model T Bible regarding setting your clutch as per the book to start then see which direction you need to follow next - it's all in the book and quite simple language ...

Re: Big Timing Gear

The steel 4 spoke was the first helical gear following the straight cut cam gear. I'm assuming following the introduction of the Ford electric starting system.

Re: Options for spark ignition for twin plug heads

Yes, the Bosch ZR4 dual is the ticket BUT rare & pricey ! When I built up my BB RAJO racer, I searched for quite some time for one but at $1600.00 near 30 years ago, it wasn't in the budget !

Re: Model t as a daily in the early 40s?

My Gramps drove the "family" grocery store TT until the late 50's which he purchased new in spring of 1925 from Wm. O. McKay Ford in Seattle.

Re: WTB 24 Coupe Door Handles & window crank.

I believe I have the window cranks BUT I don't have the "special" wide shoulder screws that retain them to the regulator.

Re: WTB low radiator inlet housing

Are you referring to a radiator part or the inlet housing attached to the block ?
