Needs real instructions

April 20, 2011
Without real instructions, assembly is time consuming. It's on the car now, but i'm not sure if it's where it was designed to fit. I started at one location for the rear bow mount, had to drill two more holes in the body a few inches away to improve the fit.
Pros:
  • Versatile
No, I would not recommend this product.

Our Model T bow kit number 91655801 are designed for the T bucket kits offered by Speedway and other suppliers and not as OEM replacements. Depending on the year the width varies and the top kit is designed to fit the widest and is then altered by the installer to fit their individual needs. The wooden header us trimmed to fit the width of your windshield frame to allow mounting and then the rear bows are cut to desired width and height. The hole in your existing body will need to be made smaller per your choice and then the lower retainer mounted in place to the retainer nut can securely hold the top in place. The front header has T brackets to hold the front in place and holes will need to be drilled and tapped per the T bracket.

Top bow kit numbers 91655801 and 91655802 are designed for the 15-25 T’s and fit windshield frame dimensions of 39-40 ½ wide. The 26-27 are longer in length and could still possibly work as the fabric would need to be lengthened as needed to match your 26. If the windshield frame you have fits in the dimensions listed then modification of the rest of the top could be made by the installer.

This top kit will not be able to fold back like the standard convertible top. It will work on the round windshield frame and is retained by corner brackets that bolt into the actual windshield frame. Our website has a pdf instruction file in purple print that gives many details on installation.

what is the install configuration of the wing nut and stud thru the body so the unit can easily be removed? the chrome wing nut and stud, used to hold the frame to the body,is fixed: the wing nut does not unscrew fromt the stud. to remove the top, the wing nut and stud comes out together. Once the unit is installed, the lock nut is inside and under the upholstery. what is the design intent of the installation (epoxy the nut inside or remove the upholstery each time the top comes off and goes on.

The nut or the nut and stud are fiber glassed inside the body. If you use the wing nut and stud together then the lock nut or retaining nut is glassed inside the body. Some customers configure it differently so that the stud remains on the body and the wing nut used is separate and when the top is removed then the wing nut is screwed back onto the stud. End result is at customers or builders preference.

The canvas is not included. You'll need to work with your local upholstery shop for that.

This universal Model T top bow kit maintains the upper bar symmetrical with the standard T bucket 20” frames. It does not have adjustments for ride height of the top for various widths and windshield heights. The tubes can be cut to reduce the overall height or change angles for head room. The head board is cut to the desired width according to your windshield frame requirements. If you want a top bow kit with a multitude of possible adjustments we do offer our Kwik Top but this is normally used on the later vehicles but the width could be shortened for the narrower T bodies. Part number for this kit is 9003231.

This is Speedway Motors universal T top bow kit and will work with most windshield frame widths and heights. It will work with most manufacturers bodies and can be altered as far as width, height, and customers head room requirements. Working in conjunction with an upholstery shop, the wood header above the frame is narrowed to meet customers preference and the tubes can be shortened in length to accommodate different windshield dimensions. Where the top attaches to the body can be varied to allow more coverage or more access to the passenger compartment. Head room can also be modified for standard or channeled bodies and also the drivers or passengers physique.
