    Carb and Vaporizer Question

    Do not worry about the vaporizer. If you ever have one do NOT use it. They have been responsible for many fires in Franklins. The choke is all you need.

    You really should have this done professionally. They do excellent work, quickly and very reasonable price. I can't remember the name but it has been in other posts.

    I think you mean what is different in the Oxford. They have leather upholstery.

    Series 11A Floorboard Screws and Washers

    The O. H. most likely means Oval Head. The screws that I supplied to the Club are 5/16 x 24 X1.5" and fit later cars.

    How to Repair Bendix on 1930 Franklin Starter?

    As I wrote above it is a "support clip". Look at the parts book, pages 1004 and 5. That goes on first, on top of it is ref #R-3890 "driving spring lock" then the screw. The lock washer has two tabs one up and one down to lock the screw. I think the clip is to give the lock washer and screw a flat base. If you don't use them or at least the lock washer the spring may bottom out and never hold the spring tightly. I would never want a bolt or screw to bottom out when tightened down. They don't build stuff with unneeded parts.
