  1. With a 5000 rpm limit, it would most likely be for a diesel. Looks generic enough to have many applications besides automotive such as industrial, etc.
  2. Close, but I believe the housing shape makes it Mercury.
  3. 1932 Auburn is close
  4. Might be worth a call to these people. Good luck and keep us posted. https://www.firetrucks.com/about-us/history-of-hme
  5. Sounds like a neat project. Hope someone has the answer for you. Post some pics when you can. Here is another forum that might help you in your search. They have some very active members also. http://oldihc.org/phpBB3/index.php Good luck !
  6. Someone on the Chandler forum might know of a source. You might post this on that forum also.
  7. This link may help. Seems to be aircraft related. Good luck on your search. http://comnavavioni.com/10-53580
  8. You might go to www.grainger.com. You can enter the demensions you need and it will cross reference which cartridge that will fit.. .
  9. Hi, not sure you will find the answer to your question here. AACA is mostly dedicated to keeping vehicles as original as possible. But someone probably knows the demensions you are looking for and may give you an answer. Good luck on your project.
  10. The two alike look like the ones used on old trucks. Their tail lights had two mounting bolts on the back to attach the light to the truck The license bracket went between the tail light and where it mounted on the truck. Here is an old 1948 - 50 Ford with a similar bracket I think the bottom bracket may be for a trailer but not sure.
  11. Think it was called a Chieftain. Next level of trim up was the Star Chief which had additional chrome..
  12. Great pictures. We should be proud of the sacrifices made by the women during this time. Not to throw cold water, but some of the pics look staged to me. I can not imagine them being allowed to wear jewelry and no safety equipment, soft hands, fresh clothes, no grime. Still great reminders if the critical roles they played.
  13. Don't know if this helps or not. Found a couple of references for Autolite B7A-12405 fitting Ford 312 engines from 57 to 61. Seems to crossreference to BTF6
  14. Here is an article that identifies it as either a 34 White or 34 Dodge according to various sources. https://www.hemmings.com/blog/index.php/2010/11/08/have-a-coke-and-smile/
  15. Looks like an industrial cap to me. Here is a pic of a 1930 International truck engine to compare to what you have
  16. Possibly for a 48 -52 Ford truck. Masurements would help identify it better.
  17. Wonder if this is the company that made this. It is located in the general area of Medford NJ. In their info page it says they have been in the automotive safety lighting business for many years. http://www.arrowsafetydevice.com/about-arrow-safety-device-company.html
  18. You need to come on down for a visit. 80s in the daytime and 60s at night. Think we had about 4 days below freezing this winter. Good luck finding a home for your heater. Someone needs it.
  19. It would not be of interest to someone who has a show quality truck, but there are a lot of old trucks owned by people who just want a functional fun vehicle who might need it if the core and blower are good. A guess would be maybe 100.00. It should fit several years of trucks. 48 to 52 and possibly more. Someone with more knowledge on these may chime in with their opinion. Look on E bay and see if any have sold recently
  20. this seems to show a similar heater in a 50 Ford truck. I believe it would be an aftermarket unit as all other trucks I have seen had a different unit.
  21. Something about it keeps bringing me to old car heaters, maybe aftermarket. I looked at pics of Arvin heaters and did not find it.
  22. Glad I could help. I grew up in far west Texas and every farmer seemed to have a couple of old Internationals that would come out of hiding at harvest time. Also a lot of the school districts used International busses. They had to run many miles every day on very bad roads and they were more heavy duty than the Fords and Chevys. So if you are 40 miles from town with kids on board it was necessary to have a dependable bus. No cell phones back then to even call for help. Here is a picture of an Bluebird bodied bus using the International drive components..
  23. Could be the hood emblem off an International Loadstar from the 1960-70s era. Very popular medium duty trucks with farmers, lumber yards, wholesale delivery, etc and many chassis were used for school buses.
  24. I believe the picture with the lady and the one with the two people could be the same car.
  25. The tractor would start easier on gas which is more volatile, but then switch to kerosene for more power and less wear on the engine. If you have not read about "pony motors" you might find them interesting also. The first diesel engines had such high compression that the electric starters if the day could not handle them. Catipillar, John Deere, and many others used a gasoline pony motor to start the diesel and then disengage the pony. Interesting to watch an engine being started by a pony.
