    Ford Spark Pack Cover + history of area

    Wife and I found this on an old homestead location dating to the early 1900s. This was a sawmill community until 1925 which was when the mill burned down and people moved away. There was a home at this location up until maybe the 1930s.

    From what I found, and please correct me if I am wrong, this is a cover to a coil pack switch on a 1915 era model T ford. I also found a picture of one on a 1914 Ford Runabout.

    This spark pack cover was found just a few feet from where my wife and I found a steam valve handle that I suspect came off an old narrow gauge sawmill train - Steam valve handle?

    The handle and the cover were both found maybe 10 feet from where I found some type of manifold - Water or exhaust mainfold?

    That is what I am thinking.

    Maybe I need to go over the area real slow. Maybe I can pick something up a little deeper.
