  1. 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?
  2. 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?
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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?

  9. 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?
  10. Metz 22 with optional wire wheels, c. 1914
  11. ANOTHER SCAM! The VIN report lookup site is most likely fake and your email came from someone in cahoots with that website looking for a fast buck. You send the VIN lookup site your money, get a worthless "report" in return, and you never ever hear from that "buyer" again. Just when you thought you've seen everything...
  12. Probably off of one of the better quality cars note the threaded pulley for adjusting the belt tension. Came with some mid 20's Chevrolet parts but it does not match.
  13. + A bunch of other misc junk thrown in as well. Not mine but I'd hate to see them get scrapped if someone here can use them... http://orangecounty.craigslist.org/pts/5205762988.html
  14. Just found this at a junk sale - sadly most of the wood is gone but the pressed steel spider is intact. OD is just over 17". Any ideas?
  15. Another long shot - I'm thinking this is c. 1911-1912. Fork spacing is 8" center-center. This was attached to an acetylene head light when we got it. Any one recognize this?
