  1. Willys or "Willis" ?

    What's an apostorphe? Should it be apostrophe perhaps? Al
  2. Willys or "Willis" ?

    Most people here seem to say Willy's, as belonging to Willy but I once read a statement from a nephew of John North Willys that claimed the family name was pronounced "Willis". Has anyone got an opinion ? Regards Al
  3. Unknown early steering column

    It has a truck look about it to me. Al
  4. Dome Light Identification

    Relying on my memory here but it looks similar to a '29 Hupmobile Century. However, many were similar in the late 20's - early 30's. Regards Al
  5. Agree with Craig. I don't think trucks ever used an IHC mag. The later truck posted by Fleek shows a Waukesha engine that had a Delco Remy distributor.
  6. What Are They? 2017/03/27 0932

    I noticed that but wondered if it was from something else in the shop. I am having second thoughts though. I think the upper windshield is too square at the top for a '15 Buick. ??????? Al
  7. What Are They? 2017/03/27 0932

    I think the car in the middle might be a 1915 Buick C25 Tourer. Al
  8. A question about pistons

    Hi Curti, The process is known as "cam ground" and there is plenty on the net about it. It is regarded as being desirable but probably refers more to aluminum pistons. Regards Al
  9. What Is It? 2017/03/20 1742

    In New Zealand, these late T's were known as "new Beauties". I'd be interested to know if this was a local term or more widely used. Regards Al
  10. Help ID tail lamp assy. Looks 1930's

    '39 Chevy tailights are pressed, not cast. Al
  11. 1913 KRIT with DISCO starter and generator

    Hi Larry, Sorry for the delay in getting back to you all. A recent death in our family caused a road trip south and I am in the process of catching up now. I will pass your information on the the Krit owner and he can do some research. Regards and thanks Al
  12. 1913 KRIT with DISCO starter and generator

    I have found a listing on it in an old Automobile Engineering book. It says it is a single unit 12V system but that is about all. No wiring diagram. Al
  13. 1913 KRIT with DISCO starter and generator

    It sounds as if that is the exact unit, as shown in my pics back further here. I think it is going to need nutting out as information is scarce. Thanks for your help. Al
  14. 1913 KRIT with DISCO starter and generator

    Hi guys, Mark, the brand I am looking for a diagram on is Disco, not Delco. Thanks anyway. Larry, looking at the photo of the Disco unit, it has less connections and is a single unit, whereas the '15 system appears to be a two unit style. If that is all we can find, we may have to see if it offers any help. It is similar and it is not hard to believe it is made by the same company. Regards and thanks Al

    Any luck Larry ? Regards Al
