Re: Is this a "dummy" flywheel ring gear for a non-starter car?

For what it's worth, I have a 1921 TT that never had a starter but was equipped with a ring gear and starter hogshead. It also had no holes drilled for a starter foot switch to mount or holes in the running board brackets to accommodate a battery carrier. I think it is strange they seemed to differe...

Brackets for top saddle support arms

A friend is working on a 23 touring car. The brackets that you bolt the top saddle support arms into are missing. I have a set from a 21 touring. Can anyone tell me if these brackets are the same in 1921 and 1923? IT IS THE BRACKET THAT THIS https://www.macsautoparts.com/ford_model_t/model-t-ford-to...

Using AA rims for a TT

I am looking for guidance on using 20" AA rims on TT wheels. I have been told it is OK to remove the center from an AA rear rim and use the rim for TT. Aside from the fact that it ruins an AA rim that someone may need,

IS IT SAFE TO USE THIS RIM ON A TT 20" WHEEL?

Thanks, TOM

I have Kelseys that are different than this one. They are split rims and have a thin pencil sized spacer ring to fill the gap between the wheel and the rim. They use a clamp like the one shown above.
