I drilled patterns in the plate for three common Chevy and Ford patterns.
I used several relays in the wiring. Additionally, it is also possible to have a car assembled at a much later date than the engine numbering date, due to slow sales and vehicle production especially during 1931 , and freight distance from the Rouge to the several west coast assembly plants. Now throw away every one of your drill guides, your so-called easy-outs easy-brokes , and your 'screw extractors' before someone gets hurt! It may also have had an 'F' in the prefix i. .

The Model A was the first Ford to use the standard set of driver controls with conventional clutch and brake pedals, throttle, and gearshift. Specifically made to work with modern engine stands. Production Foreman's handwritten daily logs and journals on file at the Benson Ford Research Center detail many engines which were delayed or round-tripped within the assembly process, prior to final test, approval, and numbering. Plus, its fun to build things. Previous Fords used controls that had become uncommon to drivers of other makes. The engine serial number was separate from the prefix letters, together making the complete unique engine number.

Please see the relevant section below for detail information on engine serial numbers for each A or B engine type and production location of interest. The G28T carried the engine serial number stamped on the pad above the water inlet on the left hand side of the block, the same location as all the earlier Model A's.
These groups of numbers are sometimes referred to as 'omitted' numbers. A rear-view mirror was optional. You will need to drill holes in this plate for attaching to your engine stand. This second date may have been only days, months, or possibly even years after the initial 'reservation' and reassignment of the numbers for foreign use. Sunny has asked me lately to provide him some plans and therefore I have made this page now. .

The Model A's fuel tank was situated in the cowl, between the engine compartment's fire wall and the dash panel. That was because I was using a magnetically triggered distributor that couldn't directly run a coil.
After welding, spray liberally with Kroil and try to get it under the washer. The engine flywheel housing number then became the serial number for the completed vehicle after final assembly. Model A production ended in March 1932, after 4,858,644 had been made in all body styles. Model B 'engine' serial numbers started at 5,000,000 and increased sequentially. The number cannot be inspected without removal of sheet metal and lifting of the body off the frame because the frame number was covered with the splash apron and body. Many completed and numbered engines were warehoused and stored for extended periods before assignment and installation in a vehicle.
