Howard, I've not been inside our timer yet (newly acquired Model F). Could you make a new roller and pin and hone out the timer body a bit? I'll email the former owner and see if he by chance has any timer parts remaining.

Bill Lucius has been rebuilding an F and has been making parts for four other cars, the parts have been looking better than originals.He is on the early Ford Registry.

Don Tyler Of Rising Sun Ohio makes timers for 2 cylinder Fords. All the parts I had for the F were given to Rob. There were no extra timer parts. The timer on the F he has is a rather complicated piece. I'm sure you can make a simpler style. Don told me he makes the timers out of an NRS timer body.
