    1000 ci Speedster Build

    Hello Chase, I feel sorry for you that a couple of "turns" have dealt you an unpleasant hand. I will send a PM in the next day or so. Al
  2. I need the hood trim pieces for a 1946 GMC truck that I am working on. Do you have any, even a single? Drop a note. Al

    1941-46 GMC logo hood trim

    I need the trim pieces for a 1946 GMC truck that I am working on. Do you have any even a single? Drop a note. Al
  4. Nice job, your projects all carry a similar theme in the appearance so it does not come off like a hodge podge. I am very impressed at the thought you are putting into your design and ultimately the end results. Are you going to put a gasket under the exhaust support the is mounted to the aluminum leg of the engine? Al

    locomobile truck

    There are a few Locomobile trucks, but they are not common and seldom are spoken about. I have a similar question regarding the locations of any existing Riker trucks or parts thereof. Riker was the lead engineer at Locomobile and was probably the "behind the scenes" designer of many of the early Locomobile automobiles. He did know how to design and build quality products. The RIker truck line was named after him. While we are looking for your elusive Locomobile or USA truck/parts, keep an eye open for anything Riker or Kissell. I am interested in either. Alan

    USA Liberty truck parts

    You are a very ambitious fellow when it comes to the early trucks. I have run across an 20's White and a mid 20's Mack but neither are as early as what you are after, (and not USA trucks). I do have some 24" Firestone rim parts that may work on your projects. Do you have any leads on teens Kissell truck parts? Al

    Speedster Builds.............

    Here is a picture of an equal leg brass 1-1/2" "Y" that I will use to build a "Rams Horn" style intake manifold for the Wisconsin, which I am missing. Here is the interesting part, we each certainly have a "knack" for hunting for specialized parts to assist in building our antique relics. I had hunted high and low for this type of "Y" and I couldn't find anything. I guess I am not a very good scrounger. I was referred to this pictured "Y" from a fellow restorer and am most thankful to have good friends that can help us along the way. I will ad a bit more information as this project unfolds. I will also post pictures of a pair of matching brass 90 deg. elbows shortly. A big Thanks.... Al

    Speedster Builds.............

    Well the summer is over, fall is here. We should all be slowing down for the season to allow more time in the shops to work on our Speedster projects. What progress has been made during the summer on our various projects? I have not done much but have procured a few more vital pieces that will allow for my build. My Wisconsin engine is now next in line for rebuild after we complete the rebuilding of the Locomobile "T" head now in progress. I should be having a "first start" party on that engine later this fall (or early winter). Share your updates......... Al
  9. Hello Joe, DO you have an idea what type carb. you will be using on the Mitchell? It looks like, as in all cases, space is going to be very tight to fit any carb.? Regards, Alan
  10. Joe, What is the chosen material for the exhaust tube? What is the temp. rating for the silver solder you are using? Al

    Early Pope fender

    PM sent
  12. Does anyone have rear body parts for an early rear entrance or something that is good enough to be used as patterns? Al
  13. Your Mitchell has a very unique intake and other plumbing. Your going to have a very nice set-up! Your crankcase looks very solid like they used a good quality aluminum in the casting process. Al
  14. I have a pair of 1930 LaSalle project cars and need a few parts for each. If you happen to have parts or pieces drop me a note. Some 1929 stuff will work for me also. Al
  15. You will get a much better response if you put your want ad in the Dodge Bros. section and further up in the main parts wanted section. Good luck... Al

    Does anyone here have experience with the Stromberg SF-4 carbs.? Al
  17. So far so good......

    Ford Model A Speedster

    Proper sized tires would give this car a much better "curb appeal".
  19. I am looking for a Stromberg SF-3 or 4 up draft carb. for a current project. It needs to have a 1-3/4" or slightly larger bore and an accelerator pump. Please drop a note if you have such a carburetor. Thanks, Al

    Updraft Stromberg SF-3 or 4 Carburetor wanted

    Hello Jon, Here are the numbers from a Stromberg SF-4 carb. Can you tell if it has the accelerator pump from these numbers? Outer circle 2CF37, inner circle 2474E. Regards, Alan

    Speedster Builds.............

    Hello Mike, The cast aluminum American-LaFrance intake manifold will be staying on the 570 CID four cylinder engine. That engine is a complete unit that I made a very BIG driving trip in order to procure it. I want it to stay intact whether I use it or sell it to someone else. As a result, I will use some creativity and build a new manifold out of copper then have it plated as suggested above. I have a good lead on a source for several large bore carbs. (to use on the Wisconsin "T" head). I am just waiting to determine if the carbs. have an integral accelerator pump before I buy. I am getting set to build some appropriate and very proper brass spark plug nuts for the Locomobile. I will take a look at the Edison Battery box, they do not come up very often. Al
  22. Yes, Locomobiles are still being worked on. Here are a few pictures of my 1909 Locomobile Model L engine rebuild that is nearing the first start in at least 50 years. If you have a Locomobile either restored or needing restoration let's gather here for moral and educational support. Al

    Locomobile Model L engine in rebuild

    Here is a couple of early Locomobile brass items that will be used on this Locomobile project. The small tag is used for serial and car ID. The longer brass threshold trim is for use under the doors. Al
