    Source for aluminum raingutter/dripedge

    Yup, took me a while to figure it out, but Anneal it, and it bends pretty easy. Then I drilled and coutersunk screws to fasten it on. I spent a lot of time, but it came out pretty nice.. Good Luck

    Tim, I looked for that molding a year or so back, with no success. I thought i found it in England, but could never actually get any shipped here. Ended up using the stuff from Restoration Supply

    The Choke pull off, opens the choke slightly when the engine starts. It has no function once the chokes warms up and opens, so the engine will run fine without it once it warms up a bit. I would think it would still be available from NAPA and other sources. Good luck!

    Autronic Eye

    I remember a customer telling about following a snowplow truck with a revolving yellow light. Said the headlight were going from high to low with every "flash" of the yellow light. Pretty funny story, But I guess at the moment the plow driver and the Cadi. driver were not that amused

    Franklin series 9A touring

    The Franklin is still available, I do drive it around town every now and then just to give it a little exercise, but we sure could use to space

    Old oil products

    Morris had a 1912 T, a model A, a 16 Stanley, an early Hudson, a Maxwell, a Pierce Arrow, and the last one he bought was a 16 Franklin. I suppose that oil may have come with the Franklin, but I don’t think so, I was with him when he got it and I don’t recall that. Also it was way back on his shelves and he got the Franklin in this century.

    Also found a small can of carbide, I know at one time he used it in the model T for the lights. I remember him complaining about how much of a mess it made. I really miss that guy!!! any thoughts on what should happen to get rid of it?

    Cleaning off a few shelves in my Father in laws basement Any thoughts on what these oils are? I mean, I know what they are, but are they anything we would use today? Or should they just be emptied into the waste oil container

    You never know what you will see.

    Sounds like it was a great tour

    Help identifying these wheels

    I will get in touch with the owner and see if they recall any Bentleys in the family history. That is certainly possible. I actually do have a 20/25 RR in my shop right now (coincidence or what) The locking knock off and threads would all be in the Hub and Nut? Is that correct? Perhaps I can get one of the wheels and take off the cover. Many thanks for the response

    The 10 HP Stanley's are great cars to drive. Good looking car, good luck w the sale. Do you have an asking price? Is the car still in the UK?

    Help identifying these wheels

    A neighbor was cleaning out a garage that has been in his family for a few generations. There were two of these wheels, and he asked me if I had any idea what they were from. Well, I do not but bet someone here will. They have splines, so I am assuming knock-offs.
