Ford Model T Battery?? What Is It??

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by Scotch Buzzard King, Aug 23, 2011.

  1. I found this the other day at an antique store. I thought that it was a device for Morse Code, but then I noticed a tag on the side of it that said 'Ford Model T Battery.' So my question is what the hell is it??

    A friend of mine had a 56 Ford Vickie with the woven seat covers. He wove a single strand wire into the seat cover and hooked it to a T coil through a momentary push button. If you were sitting on the wire and he pushed the button...well you can imagine. Made the girls jump over his way.

    Ha! that's funny, my uncle helped get Merle started, He was the first guy Merle contacted after he got outta jail when he was starting his band! My uncle was his guitarist for a few years and they were friends ever since!

    OKIE from Muskogee!!!
     
  19. I love it man!! I got to see Merle in concert a few years back, and it was one of the best shows I ever saw. He said while he was up on stage that his first ever show with the Strangers was at an old bar in Amarillo called, "The Clover Room." He said that anyone can get a good start in Amarillo. Well I say that it all starts in Muskogee. :D
     
  20. model T had individual coils per cylinder and a crank "sensor" like all the new cars.

    The Model T used planetary gears in the transmission much like modern automatic transmissions too.

    A friend grew up in So.Cal. and his first job was working after school in the neighborhood gas station. In front of said gas station was a strip of grass between the sidewalk and the station apron. Everyday he had to clean up after a german shepard who felt it was his duty to fertilize and water by lifting his leg on the light pole in the grass. Ray got tired of this and approached the station grease monkey and between them they devised a plan to attach a "T" coil to that pole. Cut to the chase , Rinty lifts his leg , sparks fly,yelps follow and he would cross the street ever after on his daily walk !!
