Re: Buckeye Jack

Ford started to supply jacks in 1913, along with top boots. I have always assumed that these were the ones until about 1916-17 when the common one with integral handle replaced it. The parts check lists that listed what was supplied with the cars for 1913 and 14 list a jack and handle, not with hand...

Re: Buckeye Jack

The one that sold has to be pre 1910.


From: MOTOR Vol 13-14
“Trade Notes”
February 1910
Page 112j
The Buckeye Jack Manufacturing Company, owing to an increase in business, have been forced to seek larger quarters, and on January first removed their plant from Louisville. Ohio, to Alliance, Ohio.

What gauge wire should be used to both ground and run to the coil box battery post if you are using a 6 volt battery? A 12 volt battery?

Re: Here I go again .... to OCF

Before anyone gets concerned about a low blood pressure reading it's always prudent to know a few things. What is the patient's usual reading? Are they having any symptoms, e.g. dizziness, weakness, chest pain, shortness of breath, etc. Is this the same bp machine they usually use: or is it a differ...

Re: Interesting Hub Cap Wrench

The bottom wrench is not Ford. I have been told that it is for Chevy. They are easier to find than the Ford one’s and easy to confuse if you think you have made a find and not pay attention to detail!

1924 fender to running board question

I understand that instead of a wooden block between the front fender and running board there was two "spacers". Were these essentially thick washers? And how thick were they?

Thanks

Re: Jacks

Here is documentation that Ford was suppling jacks in 1913, note it states "and handle" for the jack. ALSO, it shows Spark plug wrench and handle, that refers to the T2178 style plug wrench that was supplied into 1913 (see photo).

Re: Jacks

Ford started supplying jacks in 1913, along with a top boot. It was a two piece (jack and separate handle), and is pictured on the right in the photo of the two jacks with the prominent FORD markings (silver colored). The other one in that picture is a Buckeye #3, and was sold by the Buckeye Company...

NOS Valve Spring Seat source?

On researching valve spring seats on the forum I note that there are several doscussions relating to the poor quality of the repro valve spring seats and the comment: "only use NOS"! Okay, where do I get the NOS ones?

Re: Very early Buckeye Jack handle

I think the common Ford script jack with integral handle came along around 1915-17. Ford started supplying a jack in 1913, as well as a top boot.

Re: Very early Buckeye Jack handle

I thought the originals were hollow. I purchased a repro @ Hershey several years ago, it was solid. The repro is painted aluminum, the original(?) is unpainted
