  1. Thanks for the suggestions Art
  2. I am changing the badly deteriorated ignition wires. Having a hard time with snaking the wires through the conduit which is in place, I sprayed the inside with silcon spray hoping it would help.I got the wire to go in about 6 inches before it completely stoped. Between the conduit and sheet metal shroud there are 6 cylinder shaped pieces (attached to conduit) that look to be heat protection for the wires. There seems to be very deteriorated grommets between the top f the cylinder and the shroud where the old wires snaked through The parts manual shows the conduit, cylinder shaped piece, grommets and wires as one part # so obviously string new wires was a tough job Should the conduit be removed so there is enough of an opening to push the wire or run a snake. I presume the grommet remnant should be removed. Any help from someone who has done this will be greatly appreciated Art Lee
  3. Tom thaks so much. What you described worked perfectly. It now has about 1/2 inch of free play and shifts as it should. Plan on bringing the series 9b to the Trek. Hope to see you there Art Lee
  4. Tom I have zero free play. Clutch grabs (not completely) at approximately. 1/2" from top. Clutch linkage is set at mid point. Followed clutch adjusting procedure in manual and it did not make a difference (tried loosing and tightening). There were spacer washers placed on the inside of old clutch cover where the bolts go through. The old clutch cover had a chunk of the casting missing plus a crack over the thrust bearing that was very apparent when the clutch pedal was pushed down). The drawings do no show these washers and they were not put back Art
  5. I have my 1922 B series 9 clutch put back together with new through out bearings and a replacement clutch plate. Adjusted clutch per manual and the clutch barely engages when the pedal is at the top 1/2" to 1/4: of pedal travel. There is pressure on the clutch pedal for the entire length of travel .Car will move in first and reverse only on flat terrain, slips in second. I suspect the two fiber friction rings labeled B and D on figure 19 of the Series 9 instruction book may be too far worn. Would like a second opinion on my diagnosis If my diagnosis is correct, where can I get these fiber rings made up Hoping to have this car at the Trek Thank you Art Lee
  6. Looking for the part number for Series 9 front wheel bearing both inner and outer. The inner bearing I removed is a Gilliam 307-Rt-100. The series 9 parts book list the inner bearing as a Gurney then Gillian 3007 Roller and 1307 Cone The outer bearing is listed as a Gurney/Gilliam 3005 Roller and 1305 Cone. Any help will be greatly appreciated Art Lee
  7. Could not find original so made due with modern parts Art
  8. I am looking for one headlight socket and one side light socket for a Series 9B. The silver coated reflector is in decent shape. The attached pictures show the socket and the connectors from my good headlight. Does anyone have these parts or know where duplicates are made. I already tried the usual sources such as Restoration Supply, Synder, and Brillman. Thanks Art Lee
  9. Hi Scott According to the Franklin club drawings the series 9 and 10 use the same piece (king pin which the manual calls a Front Yoke Pin. Drawing is 20999 for pin and 20993 for the bushing. Thanks Art Lee
  10. Hi Mike. Yes, I got the parts from Bruce and they work perfectly. Thanks for your help Art
  11. Would any one have access or know where I can get a king pin for my series 9. The left is shot, the right is Ok Thanks Art Lee
  12. If you planning to get an appraisal from Kevin Gray owner of East Coast Appraisers, Monroe, NY, please email me at art@artkoe.com for my experience.
  13. Hello Mr. Gariepy Thank you for responding. I respect and will abide by the rules of the AACA forum. I also respect that forum moderators are volunteers and I appreciate their contribution of their time and effort. I believe my posting complied with the rules you show above stating “You agree, through your use of this private forum, that you will not post any material which is knowingly false and/or defamatory, inaccurate, abusive or provoking tone, containing vulgar or profane language, threatening, harassing, hateful, sexually oriented, or containing personal attacks, or that are considered offensive of otherwise inappropriate by the moderators will be deleted.” My posting stated that I had hired Mr. Gray owner of East Coast Appraisers based upon credentials he provided to make an appraisal of several cars. It further stated that a retainer payment of $1,000.00 on November 1, 2015 and that Mr. Gray failed to provide the appraisal and would not return phone calls, emails, fax and respond to a certified letter. Supporting documentation was provided as an attachment on the posting so other members could make their own decision on my claim. My basis for the post was to warn other members what had occurred so this does not occur to them. I believe it proper and appropriate to warn other members about misrepresentation and I wished I had been warned before I engaged East Coast Appraisers. Mr. Gray certainly has the opportunity to comment and in fact I had previously notified Mr. Gray (by certified mail) that lack of response would result in my action to notify others in the antique/classic car community of his actions Respectfully Art Lee
  14. Hello Webmaster My name is Art Lee and I am AACA member #4111011. I had posted a fraud alert on the AACA forum regarding Kevin Gray, owner of East Coast Appeasers who took $1,000.00 for an appraisal job. and then disappeared, My posting was deleted I definitely do not expect the AACA to get involved in such cases, however I believe it is the interest of all fellow AACA members to be notified when a firm or individual takes money for goods or services and then disappears without providing those goods or services. These type of people will continue to defraud others members since there are no consequences for their actions I would have hoped that I had been warned before dealing with Mr. Gray.. I had researched including google searches and there were no warning of what happened to me What is the AACA's policy regarding Fraud and reporting fraud to other members Art Lee Randolph, NJ Copy canceled check to Kevin Gray.pdf East Coast Appraiser.pdf
