Re: Just bought a 1926 unmolested Fordor Body

The front floor boards seem to have a clip to hold the two boards ends that have the slots for the pedals. That would indicate to me it must be a later body. I believe the Fordor also included a green color from the factory.

Re: Article about Tom Carnegie

Yes, I should have said article about Tom Garnegie. I will try to remember this in any future posts! I do not have the magazine (after all most Model T folk are "frugal")! I saw the article when at a book store. It is on page 118 which is near the end of the magazine. I guess the magazine company wa...

Re: Jacks

Larry: The distance between the bottom of the tire and the lower part of the beam front axle near the wheel determines the retracted jack height needed to jack up the wheel. Unless I am missing something the front spring arc or number of leaves etc. has nothing to do with the jack height required to...

Re: Jacks

Larry, the parts books do not list a flip top jack. However, the library has pictures of a flip top jack assembly with a "T" number. Since the flip top jack was produced that looks like the print/pictures I take it on faith that the parts book was not changed, but a flip top jack was used in 1926, 1...

Jacks

I believe that there were three "types" of jacks used for the Model T Ford passenger vehicles. The first type had a screw type mechanism with an attached handle. The second type had a pressed steel outer housing with a ratchet and separate handle. The third type had a pressed steel outer housing wit...

Re: ***1926-1927 Fan Assembly***

Perhaps I missed it, but there was an earlier version that had a worm and screw to rotate the eccentric. I think there was breakage problems with it and Ford came out with this second design that is shown in your drawing that was more robust in terms of less breakage. Like others have said, you do n...

Re: Installing a 26 roadster body.

I would like to know if the body shown is a roadster or roadster pick-up. If one looks at an area in back of the round wood post holding the body at an angle (a couple of feet back) there is a hole in the subrail. I believe this is for one of the rear fender fasteners. There is another "bun panel" w...

Re: Teflon Tape for Carb Fittings

Scott: With regards to Fords gas line securing champ, is that also for the 26/27 vehicles with the fuel tank in the cowl? I currently do not have any securing clamp for the fuel line and want to know if I should have one and where! Or are you talking about only vehicles with the gas tanks under the ...

Re: armature wiring

Thanks guys.

My memory is going as it was in the 2017 forum not the 2018 forum. That was the exact pictures I was looking for. Now to take the time to study them and try to better understand how the armature is wired. Very seldom do I see such great pictures of the armature.

Thanks again

armature wiring

Back in the 2018 forum, I thought there was a good description of how the wires were placed on the armature. I tried to locate it for educational purposes but could not find it on the old forum. Does anyone know the date and time of the posted pictures.

Thanks
