These were also used on the 8hp and larger Model T. In the reproduced manual (got mine from Starbolt) there is a picture on one.

I'd like to have one eventhough ours is a 6hp. Way too cool.

I've got to get my photos sorted out so I can find them quicker. These were taken here in Florida in 1997. It's on a 32HP Fairbanks Morse type N. Check the attachments and then see the whole story at http://www.old-engine.com/hunsader.htm

Harry, that engine was in the Parksville, KY feedmill located beside the RR tracks on KY 52. I would stop by and look at it 30 or so years ago when it was in its original setting. It was purchased and ended up in TN. I had a friend in IL that traded for it and I hauled it (what a load!!) to IL for him and I knew he traded it off but I never knew where it went. Some of this stuff has traveled through the years!

I'm pretty sure that the reproduction listed in the ads is by Keith Billet and I would like to say that from personel experience he does quality work. Thanks, Harry.
