    Franklin series 9A touring

    The Franklin is still available, I do drive it around town every now and then just to give it a little exercise, but we sure could use to space

    Morris had a 1912 T, a model A, a 16 Stanley, an early Hudson, a Maxwell, a Pierce Arrow, and the last one he bought was a 16 Franklin. I suppose that oil may have come with the Franklin, but I don’t think so, I was with him when he got it and I don’t recall that. Also it was way back on his shelves and he got the Franklin in this century.

    Also found a small can of carbide, I know at one time he used it in the model T for the lights. I remember him complaining about how much of a mess it made. I really miss that guy!!! any thoughts on what should happen to get rid of it?

    Cleaning off a few shelves in my Father in laws basement Any thoughts on what these oils are? I mean, I know what they are, but are they anything we would use today? Or should they just be emptied into the waste oil container

    You never know what you will see.

    Sounds like it was a great tour

    Help identifying these wheels

    I will get in touch with the owner and see if they recall any Bentleys in the family history. That is certainly possible. I actually do have a 20/25 RR in my shop right now (coincidence or what) The locking knock off and threads would all be in the Hub and Nut? Is that correct? Perhaps I can get one of the wheels and take off the cover. Many thanks for the response

    Help identifying these wheels

    A neighbor was cleaning out a garage that has been in his family for a few generations. There were two of these wheels, and he asked me if I had any idea what they were from. Well, I do not but bet someone here will. They have splines, so I am assuming knock-offs.

    Rusty Gas Tank

    I have used Gas Tank Renu in the past and have been very satisfied, but this tank is fairly nicely painted. So, I drained it and scraped as much of the Goo off the bottom as I could reach. Next I ran some solvent through to clean out all the sticky stuff (its hard to believe that this stuff used to be gasoline). Then I poured a couple gallons of Evaporust in the tank and sealed up the tank. I left the Evaporust in there for 2 days and rolled the tank around 3 or 4 times a day. Drained, and rinsed it out with water and WOW, it looks great!! I had used Evaporust before, but mostly to clean up hardware. I am very pleased with the job it did inside that gas tank. Thanks for the suggestions Even the Dogs were impressed

    I knew the dogs would steal the topic 😉 Golden Doodles, The Mom is pretty helpful, the son is more interested in chasing squirrels

    Rusty Gas Tank

    Apologies for a "non-auto" question, but I figured it was close enough. My help has been requested to get this Farmall Cub running after sitting for many years. There was about 3 gallons of nasty gasoline in the tank along with a fair amount of rust and some grayish color goo on the bottom. So my question is... What have others done to successfully clean out a tank? someone told me to fill it with Apple Cider Vinegar 🤔 I asked my staff what to try, but they were no help! Im certain I'll get some great suggestions here Thanks
