Re: More Head identification

Hunt down another one..Son that head is JUNK, you might get a nickle for scrap.

Sell it to one of those Arteist's, they can re-purpose it and somehow feel as though they have "saved the planet".

Re: Model T front spring length

The width between my front spring perch's are 36" on my Fordor, I checked several other year front axles and all 36".

Assuming the perch width was kept the same during production.

Re: Installing Roof

In the Model T restoration handbook published by Clymer has two great articles by EW Stitt, Retopping the enclosed car and How to make your own top.

Good luck and let us know how you make out.

One other thing you might want to consider that happened to me, I was late with my renewal and might have caused a late delivery.
