  1. Thanks for posting the short You Tube clip. Maybe the new owner will also post some information and etc. Al
  2. Thanks for your note and explanation of the leather pouch. I had not thought of the fire extinguisher. With the big engine upfront, does it tend to under-steer when taking corners at speed? I am building a speedster based on a 727 CID Wisconsin four cylinder "T" head engine. I think that I will be OK from a weight distribution perspective, but my unit will be heavy for sure. Do you have a You Tube of your special speed car running and driving? Al
  3. I must ask, what is the leather pouch for that is located on the left of the body. Is it simply making a statement that the speedster is "packing the mail"? It would be nice to see a You Tube of the car running and driving. Al
  4. Hello Hugh, Thanks for taking the time to respond to my inquiry regarding Marvel carbs. I am certain that with some creativity, I can get a good functioning carb. Thanks for your links and additional information and thoughts. Al
  5. Hello Thriller, Could you check to see if you have contact information for the Gent that may have a new, machined from aluminum, venturi? Thanks for your response, Alan
  6. Does your Gemmer steering gear have the switch at the bottom? Looks like the wheel is toast, maybe good for parts, I could be interested. Al
  7. Does anyone, in this forum, know of a replacement part, in either brass or aluminum, to replace the deteriorating Pot metal venturi in the Marvel carburetors? Has this item been reproduced making new castings available? Please give me an idea what I can do to get past this rotten pot metal casting. Al

  9. Ed and others, I am looking for a medium sized application steering column as the assembly from my 1923 Nash is missing. I would consider others as long a the throttle and spark quadrants look the part. Dodge and others do not look the part. If I had a picture of the correct steering column, I would attach. Others feel free to add a picture if you have a 1923-24 Nash. Al
  10. What is the configuration of the 10 liter Hall Scott engine. What is the red line RPM and HP? It is probably a long stroke stump pulling brute. That racer looks like a fine built early specimen. What type wire wheel did you use on the car? Could you post a few additional pictures for us to savor? Did the car stay in the Scotland? Al
  11. Response sent................
  12. I am looking for an early 1920's Gemmer steering column complete with wheel and quadrants. May consider other types as long as I could make a fit to my project. Al
  13. I agree, they look more Dayton to me also, very similar to Auburn and some Marmons. Al
  14. Eric, PM sent. Al
  15. Hello George, What size brake drum do the rear ends use? Al
