    sleeve valve engines

    Dave Bell's 1929 Stearns Knight Model M Coupe is still running and touring regularly in far eastern North Dakota. The current owner is a young man in his 30's who is doing a great job of preservation. He had done just enough engine work so that the car tours very well and for long distances. It's appearance is the same as when Dave Bell owned it - no changes there. The suspension has been tightened up and it rides and handles better than it did a few years ago. Not bad for an 88 year old lady. Oh, and she has cut back on her smoking habit due to some of the engine work.

    Circa 1927 Car to ID

    It is a 1927 Stearns-Knight G-8-85 Touring on the 137" wheelbase. This frame was shared with the 1927 F series 6 cylinder cars. The 137" J-8-90 and 145" Wheelbase J-8-90 were introduced in 1928. The 1928 and later H 137" wheelbase car frames were significantly different than the G and earlier frames. Additionally the G-8-85 (8cyl) radiator created some overheating problems for the first eight cyl. cars.The H and J series cars had a thicker radiator core. A factory service bulletin for the 1927 G-8-85 also addresses a heat issue, only this one for the front seat passengers. The cars left the factory with cast aluminum toe boards. They transmitted a significant amount of heat and were recalled and replaced with wooded toe boards. Mark

    FS: 1940 Pontiac Touring Sedan

    Still available. I'd rather sell than return it to the shed for another winter. Mark
  7. Earlier this year I purchased a 1912 Stearns-Knight Touring car which has this badge attached to the firewalll. The car was in the Los Angeles area from 1911 through about 1965, then moved to an owner further north in California. I am attempting to learn more about the car, and would like information on the caravan in 1948. Do any records exist? The badge has "1912 Stearns-Knight" engraved in the lower left, and the number "16" in the lower right. Thanks for any help!

    New Idler Gears For Sale

    I am rebuilding two 1929 Stearns Knight cars. I have disassembled the Timken worm drive rear axles. Do you think your spider gears will fit this rear end? The worm wheels in both are marked 4 1/2 to 1. The carrier is riveted together. Can they be bolted back together at reassembly? Are replacement worm & wheel sets available? There is some gauling on the wheel. Can I reverse it so the worm pulls on the other side? Thanks
