Default Re: 33 Phaeton questions from Sri Lanka


The Model A (1928-1921) had a rod through the floor that pushed on a switch mounted on the starter. The early '32 4 cylinder had the switch in the same location except it was activated by a pull cable (see first photo). The V8 used a switch (see second photo) that mounted on the steering box (the V8 starter was on the right side). Later 4 cylinder cars in '32 used the same switch as the V8 which was mounted on the steering box. Note that both of the photos are intended to show the switch, ignore other stuff in the photos. My guess, and it is definitely a guess since I have never owned a RHD 4 cylinder car, would be that Ford used the foot operated switch mounted on the steering box.
