Model T Ford Suppliers This list of companies that supply parts for Model T Fords is provided as a service to Internet viewers worldwide. The Ford Model T started with a twist of a hand crank. He created an unprecedented vehicle that was affordable and mass produced. Solution was to climb the hills in reverse. Never realized that only the skirt portion of the piston needs to be elliptical.
They are cam ground and have. Did all of this fall to the wayside due to lack of interest, --or lack of funding? This thing was quite heavy and if memory serves it was from a 260 cu. Mains must be cut to 1. Long and the short of it was this: that crank was so heavy that I didn't have enough counterweights to handle it when offset to grind the crankpins. An even better idea is to send it to George Miller from this forum, he is old school and one of the sharpest most knowledgeable mechanics you will ever find in your life.

If geometry is bad, only loose is safe. Incidentally, the A crank job with the insert bearing conversion threw us for a loop when it came to balancing the shaft.
As I understand it, when Ford first started making the B's, they made standard and balanced cranks that were a one piece forged and I have one of those balanced ones. I have seen it held it and bought it. The Model T was, indeed, a motor car for the masses. If Burlington wants to tool up to make new forged counterweighted cranks for T that would be wonderful. Later on, when there was more need for the counter balanced cranks, they started making them with the swedged counter weights.
I think this was one of the deriviatives of the 235 but for a truck or some industrial application. .

The first set of pistons had one piston where the wrist pin hole was too large wrist pin fell out. Model T did not have a modern service brake.

By on Wednesday, February 18, 2009 - 09:45 pm: Jack That's a fine early block with the pipe thread freeze plugs to be getting a counterweight crank and a new Stipe? One was a welded conversion that I fixed for another guy. You can order a Catalogue or download it from our web site. Jack - stand that crank in the photo up before it's too late.
