What's in the Box

Info

This manual shows you how to assemble one of our 1923 T-bucket or 1927 T Roadster kits. It's full of photos and step-by-step instructions to clearly illustrate the assembly process. Manual now includes chapters on installing the engine and drivetrain, preparing and intalling the body, windshield, wiring, and even how to install upholstery.

If you're considering a T-bucket purchase, you can purchase this manual first to see what it takes to build it yourself. The manual's price is fully refundable with the purchase of a 1923 or 1927 T kit.

NOTE:    This manual provides detailed examples on the assembly of a traditional T-bucket.  The manual does not provide in detail the assembly of our Tribute-T, but can be used as a generic reference to cover basic concepts.

Tbucket assembly manual

March 15, 2016
I'm using this manual to guide me with parts I know I'll need and those I'm not aware of. It seems to be a great tool so far. Wish it had details about using the Winters' rear end. Would like to see a Tribute T assembly manual but this will still work great. I'm really excited and feel like I'm on my way with this book. Can't wait to start order parts and thanks for the tool box stickers. Mike
Pros:
  • Great Tool
Cons:
  • None Yet
Yes, I recommend this product.

Excellent manual!

March 04, 2016
I'm building a T with lots of Speedway parts, and got this manual because I wanted to see how Speedway puts its kits together. I learned more from this manual than I'd expected, or even hoped. This is not a put-widget-A-in-slot-B assembly manual, it is a thorough and descriptive how-to about the whole build process, with clear writing and clear photographs and a lot of time and effort from knowledgeable builders. I'd recommend this manual even if you're doing a scratch-built T; the body mounting portion alone is worth the price of admission. --What's not to like? I had to cut the inside corners off each page so they wouldn't catch on the binder latch. Grr. Two minutes of my life gone forever. PS--make that four minutes, because it took me two minutes to think of something I didn't like.
Pros:
  • Clear
  • Thorough
  • Accurate
Yes, I recommend this product.

Not enough detail

June 21, 2015
Some people will probably see much more value in this book than its price, but I did not. It's well organized with good pictures, but for me it's lacking in detail in some areas. It's sold as an introductory manual so I should keep that in mind.
Pros:
  • Well Organized
  • Good Pictures
Cons:
  • Not Enough Detail
No, I would not recommend this product.

This assembly manual gives instructions on assembly as well as part numbers of the components used to build one of our T-Buckets. If you are interested in building a T-Bucket I highly suggest you get one of these manuals. If you end up buying one of our T-Bucket kits the purchase price of this manual will be fully refunded at the time you purchase the kit.

can i install fenders on your kit?

You can install them, but if body is mounted have to remove it. and every thing else has to be adjusted to go with it to a certain point. But you should have enough slack in wiring and battery cables and fuel lines to be raised up the thikness of the fenders and running boards.

Part number 715900 Our kits do not offer the option of fenders, brackets, and necessary hardware. We do offer motorcycle style fenders that could be adapted to the front under part numbers 9002746 and 9002031. For the rear the standby for years has been numbers 9002040 or 9002041. Neither comes with the brackets or hardware and this would be up to the builder to fabricate. Original style fenders and running boards will not match up to the frame dimensions or wheelbase of the T bucket kits we offer.

I want to build a 27 T using your Deluxe body. I want to build my own frame using suspension parts that I already have. Does this manual give details as to dimensions and mounting points required for the 27 T Deluxe body?

No it does not, as your frame will not be built to the same dimensions as theirs. I built my own frame and would strongly recommend buying Tex Smith's (HOW TO BUILD HOT ROD CHASSIS). Before starting the project.

Our T bucket manual goes into extensive details on the assembly of one of our T bucket kits or the 27 roadster kit. It does not however get into a blue print scenario with dimensions of the frame and body mount location. Some customers utilize 4 body mounts and other customers may go with 6 for more solid assembly. Normally this is up to the customers preference and in the case of a custom frame, mounts would need to be located as needed.
