1909-1910 Fuel Tank Sediment Bulb (Threaded)

Post by VowellArt » Tue Nov 26, 2019 11:55 pm

This is the typical 1909-1910 threaded style you see in all the vendor catalogs, the soldered one looks a bit different in that it has a flange that looks sort of square I think, not sure really I only got a glimpse of one at the last HME (Holiday Motor Excursion) I was at.

If anybody has a picture of that bulb please let me know and or post it here...because if it was used on a Model T by Ford, I need to draw its assembly too.
Fun never quits!

Happy Thanksgiving Martin,
Hope You are doing well.
Attached is a photo of an original one I restored for a customer’s 1910 I’m restoring.

Larry, you know I never got to see the top of that sediment bulb, all the pictures I've gotten were from the sides and bottom...
Revision 1-A

The placement of the shutoff valve on the bottom makes more sense to me too (easier to get to), but I guess folks can put that wherever they want to anyway, so I'm leaving it on the side.
Fun never quits!

Not wishing to start an argument as I may Be wrong but did the 09/10 actually have a fuel shut off valve??
The drain shown using the common valve used elsewhere in the vehicle is correct in my opinion.

The later models arrangement had the shut off valve integral to the sediment bulb and that was definitely pointing downward
for open but the later style (screw in) valve as depicted in the new drawing would be open as shown

Cheers Alan

Alan.
Answer to your question is yes, according to parts books, that screw in type 1908 to about the end of 1913. It also looks like the same as N,R & S gasoline tank stop cock.

Attached are a couple of photos of an original unrestored 1910 sediment bulb assembly. I think these photos came from Bruce Macaulay.

I stand corrected and pleased to see those photos Larry. I have installed the shut off valve in that exact position and not
the easier access spot on the Carby
