    Presently---which US proprietary engines (Buda, Cont, Erd/Chief, Herc, Milwaukee, etc) ...got into which US car/truck makes
  1. Continental in 1913 Marmon???

    Many thxx for clarifications---just another of the little errors that creep into publications, altho it would probably be more accurate to comment that with the amount of auto makers etc then existing that the old trade magazines published so few errors...
  2. Continental in 1913 Marmon???

    On one of those"ask the Editors" pages in American Chauffeur, Vol 3, page 280 (full view on hathitrust) someone asked what motor was in a 1913 Marmon (didn't say 4 or 6) and the reply was "Continental'... I'd always assumed Marmon built their own engines; anything to this???
  3. Vintage Oneida Truck

    ONEIDATRUCKLADY: My apologies for late reply, and also if this all old news: Mroz and Motor Worlds 1927 stats show after 1924 reorganization the line was A9---omitted by Mroz, 11/4T on 27 Ststs, 36x5 rears...Mroz states earlier As 1T, implies 130WB B9---2T per Mroz, 13/4T in 27 stats, 144WB, 36x6 rears C9---21/2T, 160 WB, 36x7 rears D9---3`1/2T, 170 WB, 36x10 rears E9---5T, 180WB, 40x illeg rears...once we have the model, original engine info may be available. One must always remember these assembled truck makers often offered engine etc options, or would install whatever the customer insisted upon...combined with the temptation to repower an old truck with something handy, it complicates restoring originality... The various online stats (Automobile, Motor truck etc) will give maker of various components but no specific model; but info can sometimes be found in old parts catalogs so you know whether your piece likely to still be around... I generally didn't put trim etc on my parts list 9most of which is now sadly dated) but do have oldcarlenses.com for lenses... My 16-26 New Departure catalog only shows Oneida up to 1924??; don't know if a later catalog might include the rest... justoldtrucks.com has a list of suppliers on their Vendors and Restoration Services section...with sympathy, Bud
  4. Vintage Oneida Truck

    ONEIDATRUCKLADY: Would you be kind enough to advise what you know of your year-model?? I find an array of 4cyl Wauks in Oneidas in my old catalogs, but no XA..a classic illustration of how spotty and incomplete these parts catalogs are...
  5. Vintage Oneida Truck

    As already mentioned above, Oneidas were "assembled" (as were a lot of period cars)...the Coachwork entry is incomplete, as old catalogs show Wauks in the later years (the Coachwork site is a veritable mine of information)... OneidaTruckLady--that Wauk series (X,,XA,,XAH, ) are all listed in old catalogs for early IH trucks, in case you're not already aware, and were extensively used as free standing power units as well as in gensets, pumpsets, combines etc...there's also a lesser popular XAK... The online car and truck specs list the the various vendors, but you have to go to old catalogs etc to find actual model numbers to learn if your engine, transmission etc was a then popular model or bad news as a low production unit... Cont'ls, Hercs and Wauks are bad enough, but Hinkleys...altho Diamond T used them, so it's not hopeless...
  6. Sorry, never learned to link...the engine illus is on EBay #351583344467; it's an AutoLit sale, reduced from their own website.. It's just my own idle curiosity; piqued when I saw a 20s or so Cont'l MMCo Muskegon ad saying their engines were in 120 makes... Just for fun, started a Cont'l list some time back, limited to pre-war cars, trucks and a few commercil vehicles (cabs, hearses, etc.).. .With my limited resources and time, I'm up to around 400 or so, with twenty or so still unsourced (realized after a bit the names were useless unless sourced somewhere)...subject, of course, to catalog errors, misprints etc, AND the 1895?1905? or so to 1913/14 or so life of Pfeiffers Contl Eng Co, the "imitation" Cont'l...
  7. Please see my post in the Horseless Carraige forum here. Any comments appreciated...
  8. Somehow the 1908-09 Bendix got onto my Continental MMCo engine list; googling around for a verification just confused things... I found one site that appeared to describe three Bendix models with 2Cyl opposed engines, mentioning, almost as an afterthought, another model with a 4Cyl water cooled engine... Then, on EBay, is a Bendix brochure (which at one time had come thru Autolit) several pages of which are on the Ebay listing, one showing a 4Cyl inline AIR Cooled engine... Does anyone here have a book that mentions the Bendix and/or whether that 4Cyl was water or air cooled, and mentions the engine builder?? Cont;l Engine Co, Chicago and Dallas City IL, advertised 4 inlines, either water or air cooled; it might be theirs... Any comments appreciated...
  9. How To Soften Rubber?????

    50 yrs or so ago they used to sell a thin black liquid they called "rubber lubricant" for drying out/dried out rubber bushings etc..you brushed it on, it was supposed to be absorbed... 'I know I used it, but don't recall if any good...you might google rubber lubricant and see if anything comes up...
  10. Old solid rubber tire 34 x 6

    If no takers here, you mi8ght try the Nash Club or the Nash forum here---per an Aug 1918 Power Wagon spec list, , the 1918 Nash model 3018 2Ton wore 34x6 on the rear, and probably the same for close years.. That was not the Jeffery/Nash Quad (model 4017) that, per the same reference, wore 36x5s all around, but a "civilian" truck Nash also built... 34x6 doesn't appear to've been a very popular size...
  11. First, many thxx to all for replies... LARRY---that was "vertical" (upright?) as opposed to "opposed" or horiz-opposed (flat) engines...most of the old ads specified whether engines were opposed or vertical, (often building/selling both types) with verticals gradually replacing flats.. Yes, the Dyke's are good references; originally thought about acquiring a set, but the exchequer wouldn't cover it...I'll look for some with full text online... The earlier, the less info, as 1912S set out above; my old catalogs pretty well cover mid-20s up, The Automobile lists show engine maker from about 1916 up, so the prior period is the ghostly era... DH---That Motor list seems to be basically the same as published by The Automobile in a slightly different format, and may contain other info (i didn't try to compare a set as I was only interested in engine make).. I'll try to bring up some earlier sets, if any exist... Lou Philips book Cars has some engine maker info, and I believe some is in The Brass Era book;...I haven't found any of the Annual Handbooks online so don't know about them... 1912S---only too true...and complicated by firms like Milwaukee Auto Engine & Supply Co, later Milwaukee Auto Engine Supply Co, which first advertised a (singular) 4 cyl vertical, as if the builder, and then a few months later advertised 1-12 cyls, 12-130HP, implying being an engine seller, or possibly both .. So many questions, so little time.....
  12. While not quite everyone in the 1900s-teens etc were building 4 cylinder verticals, a large number were, at least per old ads in the trade magazines of the period (Automobile Trade Journals and Directories, the various Motors, etc).. Does anyone know of a Reference work covering early 4cyl auto/truck engines, or covering early auto'truck engines that includes the early 4 verticals, or an Early Car or Truck book that includes a lot of engine ID info ( maker; engine model's too much to hope for)??? (I have Std Cat US Cars and Mroz's Truck/Comm'l Ency...I can't afford Georgano's).. Automotive Industries' The Automobile began publishing yearly lists including engine maker around 1916-17 or so,available online ( prior years omitted engine builder) were there any such lists published, available online, for earlier years by other periodicals?? I found one, can't recall magazine, but its tables are up-down on my screen, and rotating my image is apparently complicated, and rotating my head painful......
  13. 31 Nash 6-60 engine pistons

    It's probably not much help---a 36 parts catalog lists that piston for the 30--32 Single 6, 450. 660. 960 and the 1932 Big Six 1060, if you're considering used...
  14. Ahrens Fox Help Needed

    Just noticed this old post---spaamfaa.org is another old fire apparatus site that might be helpful...
  15. Just noticed this old post... You said "the" Lyc 8... If that meant you thought they used only one Lyc 8 29-32, a 36 parts catalog lists five---GR and GS 27/8 bore, MD and MDH 31/4 bore, and HF and HFB 33/8 bore... My apologies if you meant any Henney chassis using any of the above...
