  1. Can one of you kind folks tell me what the fluid capacity is for a 1930 Franklin Transmission? Also, what is the proper weight that should be used for the transmission fluid? Thanks for the help! Bill
  2. Don, As far as a replacement for your sheared off screw, you can get two replacement screws at Langs Old Car Parts (www.modeltford.com). Their part number is 5023-4-5. I know these are for a Ford Model T, but they are exact replacements and work fine. My 1930 starters (I have two) do not have the two shims that you show in the picture. Regards, Bill Jewell
  3. Mike, What is the condition of your bendix and how much do you want for it? Can you please send a couple of photos? Thanks Bill
  4. I have a back-up starter (Delco Remy 723-C) for my 1930 Franklin that I need to replace the gear on the bendix. Could someone please advise how to go about replacing the gear? Thanks! Bill
  5. Hello, I have a 1930 Franklin that appears to have the starter stuck to the flywheel. I have been running and driving it recently and now the starter appears to be stuck. Any suggestions on getting it loose? thanks! Bill
  6. I need to buy some Intake and Exhaust Manifold Gaskets for my 1930 Franklin. Anyone know of a good source? Thanks! Bill
  7. Gentlemen, I have a spare starter for my 1930 Franklin that I need to repair or replace the entire bendix mechanism on. Would the Model T bendix set work on my Franklin if I installed the larger spring? Would any other modifications be required? Thanks for the help! Bill
  8. Hello, I have a 1930 Franklin that I need to check for leaks in my Intake manifold and Exhaust manifold. Since the engine heats up so quickly, what is the best way to search for leaks on these two manifolds? Thanks for your help! Bill
  9. Hello, I am attempting to adjust the valves on my 1930 Franklin and have run into an issue that I have not seen before. I adusted the valves for cylinders 1, 4, and 2. When I got to cylinder 6 I am finding that i cannot get the gap to open for the exhaust valve. The "rocker arm" / walking beam will not lift off of the top of the valve no matter how much I turn the screw. I hand cranked the engine a few times and I am seeing the exhaust valve open and close. Am I doing something wrong or is there a problem with the valve or walking beam? Thanks for any help or advise! Have a Great Thanksgiving! Bill Jewell Arlington, Texas (cell) 817-739-8565

  15. Hello, I have a 1930 Franklin that I just discovered has a broken Brake Drum Spring (the spring that pulls the brake shoes inward, away from the drum). The spring is fairly heavy and is approximately 9 1/8 inch long. I need one fairly quickly and would appreciate any help that you could provide locating one. I have attached a photo of my broken spring. Thanks! Bill Jewell Arlington, Texas email: Oldradios@aol.com
