  • "Made in Canada" Ontario plate available upon request at an additional cost

  • Rust-proof red brass casting for bottom outlet and upper inlet

  • Choke hole location in Model T radiators

    In December of 1910 Ford Model Ts used a priming rod routed between the fins of the radiator.  In January of 1911, Ford drilled a choke rod hole in the lower part of the front trim.  The Brassworks does not drill this hole.  The location of the hole is noted below for reference.

     


     

    Note: During 1914 the name plate on the back side of the Model T radiator top tank was changed. Drawings of the rear panel of the top tank indicate that the Ford Motor Company plate soldered to the tank was replaced with an embossing of the design of the plate in the rear wall of the tank itself.  Unless otherwise specified The Brassworks manufactures Model T reproduction radiator prior to 1913 with the plate embossed.
