    Locomobile Parts Department "For Sale"

    I am trying to locate the exact Gazette issue to refresh my memory on how Chris did his project and what material he used. Time moves on from 7 or 8 years ago, and there is now a need again for a few of the Locomobile Bakelite style radiator caps. Al

    Locomobile Parts Department "For Sale"

    Hello Chris, Are you involved with the Durant Club? It may be that body works from another of the Durant offerings would be similar enough to replace your missing sedan body. It may also be an option to check on the possibility that a Junior 8 Locomobile sedan body could be fit to your 8-80. At this moment I have no information on loose or spare body parts for your vintage Locomobile. However, should I run across or hear of any possibilities suitable for your Locomobile I will pass along that information. What state are you located in? Alan
  3. I am looking into casting my own radiator cap to replace a well weathered original Bakelite radiator cap. I know this same process has been completed many times. Could someone share with me the best material to use that is easily castable, UV resistant, can stand temps to about 220 and be machinable in order to fit and glue the threaded brass cap into the finished casting. I see that McMaster-Carr has a Black product that can stand temps to 180 deg. F but do not know how UV resistant that material is. The McMaster-Carr P/N for this material is: 8644K55. Please share your knowledge and experience. Al

    If you, or a friend of yours, would be in need of a Locomobile script "Bakelite" type radiator cap, (using my pattern above), drop a note as this project is about ready to move forward. The more caps built the better the price per each. The cap will be cast out of a modern Bakelite hi temp substitute material and have a brass threaded insert glued into it to fit the neck of the radiator, just like the originals. Al

    Does anyone know of the current disposition of the Locomobile Junior 8, which is the subject of this thread? Did it find a new home? If so where did it go? Al

    Locomobile Parts Department "Wanted"

    Good Morning Mike, Sadly, this year I will not be making the trek to Hershey. (I have other pushing commitments). I would like to know more about your fenders. If you have pictures, either post here or send a PM. Tell me what you can about the car that was used as a pattern from which your fenders were built. As I recall, your Locomobile is a 1914 and you are guessing that your fenders are replicated from a 1911 or 12? Al

    Thanks for posting the picture of the 1913 Locomobile 48. Do you have other views of the car including the dash? This car will find a good new home!

    I am looking for a Locomobile front axle from 1909 to 1915 (or there abouts). If you have seen a hay wagon or cart that has been made out of a Locomobile axle, drop me a note. Al

    Screen Side Question

    I looked in EBAY and as a fact, the auction has ended so you would need to search "ended" auctions. The auction has closed but does not appear to have sold. I monkeyed around and hope that I have grabbed an image of this truck cab back panel and can get it to post here for everyone to help me determine if it is right and can work for my 1922-23 Dodge Bros.screen side truck. (success, please see the attached picture of the cab back panel) Please share your observations or suggest questions/measurements I need to ask the seller to verify proper fit for my application. Regards, Al

    Screen Side Question

    Hello JayG, At this moment I do not need a transmission but that can change when I get into the mechanics of this project. Hello Stakeside, I do not know how to attach a link to EBAY, sorry. The EBAY item number is what you would need to copy, go to EBAY then paste the number into the EBAY search, you should see this cab back panel and maybe help me to determine if it is the right piece for a 1922-23 Dodge screenside. Thanks for your response. Regards, Alan
  14. Does anyone need the bumpers to complete a 1937 Chrysler airflow? I have them and can get pictures. Al
