    Help identify brass era car

    Any more ideas? Again thanks for looking.

    Spindles c. 1912-18?

    Except for aftermarket ones? And many of those aftermarket ones had a name on them like Food for Ford from what I have seen.

    Help identify brass era car

    My guess is this might be a Cadillac about 1912, but that is a big guess for me. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    " 1961 VW Beetle dim tail lights"

    On ‎2‎/‎13‎/‎2018 at 9:38 PM, Larry Schramm said: If you have a 6 volt system and are using a 12 volt bulb, that is the problem. Your light output will be 1/2 what it should be. What voltage system does your car have? If you do not know, put a volt meter across the two batter terminals when the car is running and take a reading. The bulbs in the car should be the same value as the electrical system of your car. Let's see, If the resistance in the bulb stays the same, 1/2 voltage should be about 1/2 the wattage which in an incandescent bulb is light. Maybe I left out "about" to make you happy. The math: The big power formulas are: Formula 1 - Electrical (electric) power equation: Power P = I × V = R × I2 = V2 ⁄ R where power P is in watts, voltage V is in volts and current I is in amperes (DC).

    trailer weight question

    For around town towing the trailer & stuff, I do not use the equalizer hitch, but every time I go out of town, I always use it. Makes the towing a much easier and enjoyable. Handles a lot better. Agree with Marty.

    Dandy Dave is spending his time between New York and Orange, Virginia. He has been very busy tying up ends from the sale of his house and the auction of the rest of the stuff that he did not want last fall. Trying to get a place in Virginia so he can move but has not found anything to his liking yet.

    Good luck on your search. I think trucks are great.

    Wanted: Cloth Covered Wire, Los Angeles region

    The "brown truck" that delivers does not care where it comes from. It just ends up at your house.

    GM Engineers collaborate on the art of fine tuning

    I agree, since the flywheel is able to be put on in any number of degrees rotation. It is not keyed to a particular cylinder. The timing mark could be on any cylinder. There is no "key" for only one way to put the flywheel on like an offset bolt, pin, etc..
  12. Well today was a good day. I had the 1915 truck out for a test drive getting ready to go to the ATHS (Antique Truck Historical Society) national meet this weekend. I had the generator off to fix an overcharging condition and was having trouble getting the timing right so I called my good friend Brian Heil to help me see the forest for the trees. It is great to know that an old Buick Engineer, now a GM "Global Propulsion Systems" engineer still makes house calls. It is great getting two GM engineers ( one retired and one still working) together to collaborate on an issue. The cost of the house call was a diet pepsi as he did it on his lunch hour. Just took about 15 minutes and was out for a ride. Looking for a great summer and show this weekend.

    Battery Ground

    If you use two cables in parallel and one of the cable connections goes bad for any reason then all of the current would go through the other cable which would in theory would be twice the planned amount. I have seen these type of set ups and they generally do not end well.

    Battery Ground

    Also, DO NOT use two 12 volt cables in parallel. That is just asking for problems.
