    Help identify Mrs. Harding's car

    Now I'm wondering if these are 2 different Locomobiles!! There is apparently no side cowl vent door on the driver's side in one photo.

    Help identify Mrs. Harding's car

    There is much more information on the internet about this car - a 1920 Locomobile Model 48 - including a photograph (apparently taken in the dealer's showroom) when it was new. The book "Presidents on Wheels,", by Herbert Ridgeway Collins, notes that Warren Harding drove the 7 passenger custom built car to and from Washington, from Marion, Ohio, when he was serving in the U.S. Senate. After President Harding died in office, Mrs. Harding took the car back to Marion. There were some changes made to the car from when it was new: The headlights, radiator cap, and spotlight are different. The driver's side front door may have been a faux door, since the hinge shown on the passenger side does not appear to be duplicated on the driver's side: https://www.gettyimages.ca/detail/news-photo/view-of-president-warren-g-hardings-new-9-000-00-white-news-photo/102643332#view-of-president-warren-g-hardings-new-900000-white-house-locomobile-picture-id102643332 President Harding's Automobile Pictures _ Getty Images.html

    The smaller door is probably Dodge.

    Sorry, I don't have these items. I have mostly chassis items.

    Mystery king pins

    Mark, thanks for that advice. I may try that if I cannot find a set.

    WTB 1931 Buick Front Bumper 50 series

    Although the 1931 50 series bumpers look similar to the 1931 60 series, they are different. All dimensions are slightly different - bars are 1/4" smaller, end bolts are 1/2" shorter, etc. Also, the 1930 bumpers are different.

    Mystery king pins

    I need to replace the king pins on my (unknown and incorrect) front axle. The pins are 7½” long, between .92” and .93” diameter, have Timken T95 thrust bearings, have a retaining pin, and bushings are 1-1/16” diameter x 1¼” long. Can anyone identify these so I can get new ones? Thanks in advance!

    Stearns lights?

    Simplex Motor Car Company used that logo on the Amplex, 1910 or later.

    Only 10 spokes on front wheels, which could narrow it down.

    Early US 89 scene

    Since the car is a convertible coupe rather than a roadster, it would be a 1931, model 96C. This body style was introduced midway through the 1931 model year.

    Wanted: 1931 Buick 8-90 frame

    I have a good straight frame for 1931 Buick 90 series. Send me a P.M.

    Here are some pictures of my axle. Hopefully someone can identify it. The axle casting number is 10572, instead of the number 10872 which I previously listed. The casting number appears on the left front and on the right rear of the axle faces. The plate on the floorboard says 608041. Thanks for your help.

    Based on the posts above, I must not have a 1924 front axle. My axle casting number is 10872. My frame number is A 27-736. Can anyone tell what axle I have?

    I need king pins for my late 1924 Dodge.. My king pins are 7 1/2" long, 7/8" diameter, with spiral lubrication groove, copper bushings at top and bottom, thrust bearing, and slot for tapered retaining pin. The pins being marketed are actually a bolt with a nut, 6" active length, 7 1/2" total length, bushings at each end, no thrust bearing, no spiral lubrication groove. QUESTIONS: What do I have? Has my axle been changed? Where can I get new pins and bushings? Thanks for any help you can give.
