Re: Model T Bendix ?????

Could any of these fit a Model A? Does a Model A starter turn the same direction as a Model T starter? You can tell I know nothing about Model A's.

Is This For A Model T?

This was with some Model T parts I bought from the family of a long-time Model T gentleman who passed away recently. It appears to have been "manufactured" and not homemade. What is it?
Just curious.

Re: Wanted info - photo of 1918-19 wooden front seat cover hinge - also info on 1915-1919ish metal gas tank cover hinge

Are the hinges in the eBay listing (by Keith above) correct for a 1914 Touring? The 4 18" length seems a little large but maybe it is correct. The shape looks like the ones in the pictures.

Re: Patent Search Help

These are some pictures of the accessory starter setup. The starter motor mounts to the frame rail and the engine pan. The manual crank handle can be removed when not being used. The patent date (Sept 15, 1915) can be seen on the housing in front of the radiator.

Hope these help.
