  1. My grandfather's car in Washington DC

    No cowl lanterns, which suggests this car was equipped with electric start. That makes it no earlier than 1920.
  2. Is this automotive related?
  3. Oil Thermostat?

    This showed up in a box of Model T parts but obviously this fits something else. I'm guessing it's a bypass for an oil cooler, but not sure what car it fits. The cap comes off to reveal the bellows. Any ideas?
  4. Any ideas on this one? My guess it's 1920's or earlier. Looks like some sort of drive coupling, and not a very efficient one. The bore is about 9/16". Thanks in advance for your help.
  5. Front Axle c. 1920 What is It?

    Found this on CL, wondering what it might fit and what it might be worth. I'm guessing 1915-1925 (demountable rims, no front brakes.) The hub bolts might be a clue - there are a lot of them. I briefly discussed price with the owner - I think he's overly optimistic.
  6. Unknown Headlight Rim c. 1925

    I thought at first it would be a Model T Ford aftermarket item, but the OD is just a little too small. OD is approx 8 7/8", ID is 7 1/8" width front to back is 1 3/8." Any ideas? Is it worth saving?
  7. Valve Spring Parts?

    I found a "Sealed Power" box marked "12 VS-262R", which contained these parts. Any ideas what they are, and does it do any good to save them?
  8. NZCarNerd, Good question. I searched online and found a Stanley Owner's Manual; it turns out that the second pedal is for reverse. A Stanley owner once told me that these cars can go as fast in reverse as in forward, at least in theory.
  9. The yellow thing is a Stanley steamer, I'm guessing mid-teens. Note how the ring gear is smack dab in the middle of the rear axle, and the full elliptical springs on the back. Also note the solid cross members - there's nowhere to put a transmission or driveshaft. Stanleys didn't use them. The engine attaches directly to the rear axle housing - it looks like it might still be there. A very nice find.
  10. 1914 Maxwell?

    I'm thinking it's a 2-cylinder Buick model 14B - you can partially see the sprocket and chain for the double chain drive just ahead of the rear wheel.
  11. Model T/A Parts ID Help

    The tie rod on the front end is early (pre-17) and definitely worth salvaging. The spindles appear to have straight arms so they're from before 1919, probably worth salvaging.
  12. Ignition Module? Aftermarket?

    This is a long shot but here goes. The case is aluminum my guess is it's for a motorcycle probably ca. 1970, when they were experimenting with all sorts of aftermarket capacitive discharge systems and other oddball ignition gizmos. Any thoughts?

  14. Rayfield, just not a Carburetor

    Found this not too long ago, it says "Rayfield" on it using the same script as you would find on the carburetor. It consists of an aluminum housing, a cam, and two switches mounted on it. I suspect it's not automotive due to the fact that it uses mercury switches. Any ideas?
