    Chuck, be sure to try to remedy this impediment to topside repair when you get it apart. Perhaps making smaller nuts from stock so that a socket might fit. The 12 torpedo is this way also and nothing I could do to facilitate individual cylinder removal. No. 6 will stop at the firewall so I need to disconnect engine from trans and move all forward too. Feel your pain. JR
  2. trade you for a 1911 M carb

    Threshold piece is not correct for model 30. I have what I believe to be correct plates. They were embossed by a press not a casting. I was trying to have them laser etched to get the embossed look. JR

    early Franklin parts

    Restoring a 1911 speed car. Looking for mechanical and chassis parts to include cylinders, rocker arms, manifolds, carburetor. Thanks. John akrendo@gmail.com
  7. I need to speak to you about that system. Great news on your progress. The photos look great. When will you start on the chassis restoration? John
  8. I recognize the frame in the photographs. Is that part of the future project or one already under way? JR
  9. I haven't cut the original wrappers off of them. They are either Lester or Universal.. I do not know how old they are but they are new and like new. The white rubber is still very white with the blue stuff still on them . The wrapper is white plastic wrapped completely around each tire. As long as I have had them they have been in a large, dry, airy barn with no direct sun or electric motors. John
  10. Have (6) 36 x 4 (28") WW tires; brand new, never opened nos still in wrappers. 1,500.00
