At least I decided to put a magneto in my new rebuild By on Tuesday, November 20, 2007 - 12:32 am: It is possible that they changed the taper and the stamping around the neck without changing the part number. Dollars off do not apply to Gift Certificates, Memberships or Cores. I've gotten Indiana titles for five T's and when the cop does the inspection, he takes my word for the year. Since the cowl on the improved cars is wider, the hood meets the radiator at a different angle. Tall 21-inch wood spoke wheels wear recent Firestone tires, and ride surprisingly well on modern streets.
The car is today as it was on that cover in 1948; although we have found one, maybe two, very subtle changes. Note the fenders have the lip, the radiator has a valance radiator shell is off at the moment. Unfortunately we cannot guarantee the fitment of 100 year old caps. I think what I am reading is that in 1922, the body was re-designed with a windshield that slanted back. Check one of the vendors catalogs that have the hood measurements. They are available with either round or flat tube cores.
They're simple, reliable, rugged machines, and their very design makes them incredibly easy to service, even for a relative novice. The bottom bracket is just there to keep the radiator shell in position. I'm going by the parts listings. It's not picky about fuel, and is so reliable that it would probably run on a combination of kerosene and Aqua-Velva. But, I've never seen a 24-25 and a 26-27 shell next to each other to actually compare, so this could just be just a myth - or not! The engine bay appears highly original and nicely maintained, with a lot of new components, all of which are readily available from a number of Model T suppliers. What about the patent plate on the firewall — was it held on with four rivets or two rivets? They're simple, reliable, rugged machines, and their very design makes them incredibly easy to service, even for a relative novice. It'll make it that much easier to find what I'm looking for.
Call him, don't email me, as I know very little about it. Three of the five have had the engines replaced at some time. But if you would like to pursue dating that truck or a different one — there are some additional clues to help establish the date range on the vehicle. So the logical conclusion would be that a nickel shell should fit the 23-27 using the stock hood for the year of the car. As for model years, I believe Ford started them with vehicles made in August.
Hap Tucker 1915 Model T Ford Touring cut off and made into a pickup truck and 1907 Model S Runabout. Shifting the scene to contemporary times, there is a guy in southern Oregon named Bill schoenleber who seems to know a lot about having fun. By Wade Pack on Wednesday, November 21, 2007 - 05:24 pm: Thanks Jack! In fact, if you're a car guy of any stripe, you owe it to yourself to own a Model T at least once in your life. There is no patent plate, so that's no help. A car made in July 1923 is a 1923, and one made in August is a 1924.
The top of a high shell will be a little under 22 inches. By on Sunday, March 08, 2009 - 12:48 am: Hap, that's the truck. By on Monday, November 19, 2007 - 05:49 pm: Bob, It will fit the radiator but if your car is a 24 the hood will not fit the shell. Would this one have been used on a 1924 model, or is it 26-27? By on Saturday, March 07, 2009 - 04:15 pm: If it is a high radiator, it fits all cars model year 1924 until the end of production. Now you guys that claim there is a taper, tell me how this would work!!!!! There's no way at this point to be sure about the date of the vehicle, so I'm just going to go by the engine serial number and call it an early 1924 model. The link to post the advertisement is at: You will probably need to drop the web master Bruce McCalley a note asking for the password -- but his link is on that same page. It's not picky about fuel, and is so reliable that it would probably run on a combination of kerosene and Aqua-Velva.
These cars will run pratcially forever and service is extremely simple. It probably should be a '24. In the case of a car assembled on about Oct 22, 1922 a lot would depend on what model the car was and also where it was assembled. I wish I had kept the measurements. All Model T radiators have deep drawn bottom tanks without seams to crack or leak and are available in the original round tube core or more modern and efficient flat tube core. And any of those windshields will bolt onto any 1915-1925 body -- but the top would not necessarily fit with the windshield correctly if they swapped from straight to slant or the other way either.
Outer shell now had a skirt at the bottom, over engine mount area. The father of modern performance cam grinding, the isky logo has been visible on race cars since Barney Rubble raced his first Top Fueler. But they were called by Ford 1924 year models. Here's the spark rod arrangement, which uses a bent rod. There is no difference, except for the plating, which was introduced in '25. This radiator has a neck placement based on the aftermarket shells that had the neck hole positioned in the wrong spot. From the front I don't notice anything -- but any of us can miss things.
