  • For those interested in very early Model A stuff

    Friend Tom Godish stopped by with this early pan, along with some other stuff he had just acquired, and I had never seen one like it. I thought maybe some people here might like to see it. IMG_2047.JPGIMG_2048.JPG

      Thanks for posting pics. I have only seen one other in all of my years in the hobby. Depending on how the engine/chassis numbers shake out with the tudor I may buy from a friend and a seperate early chassis I am looking at I may need one of those. I know the tudor has had the engine and front end changed. Based on the few pic's of the chassis I have seen it may be a relatively correct January chassis. Too early to tell for sure as info has been slow and it is 500 miles away. Rod
      Much of the social history of the Western world, over the past three decades, has been a history of replacing what worked with what sounded good.

        Hi Jim,
        I actually don't have any early A parts. This pan belongs to Tom Godish.

          Ray. Tell Tom I said "Hi". Been a good long while since I visited with him about KRW stuff. Did he ever start making the replacement KRW handles? If so I would be intersted in a couple of them. Rod

        Guess that's what happens when you use water instead of oil. LOL

        I haven't seen a splash pan like that before. Even though it's shot, it still needs to be saved as a display item.

          Tom Godish saves EVERYTHING. I know he'll keep that pan, and those dip trays are especially interesting, I think.

            I believe Mr. Godish’s pan is likely the first version. The bolded text represents my (have 3) pan.

            (A6675) OIL PAN
            ● {BOP-Jan‘28}: Plain sides with no ‘ribs’ to secure the interior tray
            Ÿ valleys (cannot see) in the oil tray were initially small but enlarged later.
            Ÿ tray screwed (4) to support brackets that were spot welded (may be visible) to the inner sides of the pan.
            ● {Feb’28-EOP}: Ribs added to both sides to support a snap-in tray; valleys enlarged
            {BOP-Apr’28}: no reinforcement strips on mounting flange (single layer).
            ● {May’28-EOP}: Reinforcement strips added along the oil pan mounting flange
            {BOP-Dec’27}: finish was initially either zinc or cadmium plated; changed to black pyroxylin lacquer [sprayed outside only] by December 1927); no attempt to fill/hide natural texture of metal
            ● (BOP-e’29): removable cleanout plate

            (A6726) OIL PAN CLEANOUT PLATE
            {BOP-Jan-‘28}: removable clean out plate below the oil pump. (cadmium/zinc/black paint)

            (A6730) DRAIN PLUG
            ● (BOP-May’28): brass drain plug: 1/8” thick head; copper gasket
            ● {Jun’28-EOP}: changed to steel; 1/8” thick head; copper gasket

              Early 28 Weel Flange Depth
              by Rowdy
              Anyone have an early 28 wheel they could measure the flange depth of? Bought an early 28 front end and rear end today while on Junk Jaunt. Now to keep an eye out for early 28 wheels for day 2 and possibly day 3. Can not find my notes from years gone by and too tired to dig for them. Leaving very early in the morning for day 2 and will check back to see if anyone has one to measure. Thanks Rod

              Early Model A Hubcaps...
              by Steve Plucker
              What do the manufactures marks of "W", "R" and "*" stand for on the early Model A Ford hubcaps?

              Thanks.
