  1. Hi AHa, thanks for that i assumed it had both a hand throttle and foot throttle like some of my other trucks, im hoping i can adapt the lever to fit my column ? will let you know when it turns up mike.
  2. Hi clifford, probably best to try and find someone who has a complete commerce truck similar as yours, and ask for pictures and info of the parts your missing so you know what to look for, thats what ive done, the quadrant is rigid and there are two levers, one for the spark advance/retard and another lever for the throttle, i wouldnt be surprised if the steering box and controls were from the same manutacturer? mike
  3. Hi greg, hows things going for you mate? I have bought a quadrant piece and one lever which is off an earlier truck from a helpful forum member, the horn button is part of the lever, mine has a seperate steel button on top, yeh i reckon your right and the controls would be a bought in item as it is an assembled truck, i havent looked to see what make the gearbox is but ill check it out and let you know cheers mike

  5. Hi jon, ok sounds like my best bet is to find an m1, i have just bought a zenith T4, so if i get one of each i may have a good chance of having something that will work, thank you very much for your help Dale all the wheels on my truck need rebuilding, the front and rears have 14 spokes and look heavier and are more square shaped, im thinking your wheels could be for the smaller model 10 or model E ? as they came in 1 ton size, the spokes are rounded and theres only 12 thanks for the offer and im sure theres someone out there who needs them, Mike pic of a rear and f
  6. Hi jon i have spoken with another republic 11x owner who told me the carb on his continental n engine was a zenith T4 he did say it could of been non original but it was attached to the inlet tube and looked in the same condition as the rest of his unrestored truck, if the stromberg m1 is correct ? do you know what venturi size m1 it should be ? or are all m1 carbs the same? also would the zenith t4 work on this engine? appreciate your help and advice on this matter, thanks mike
  7. Hi clifford yeh some of the smaller Republics used continental engines the 3 3/4 is the bore size, my engine is a continental N type engine nos113286 and the chassis nos dates my truck to built sometime in 1920 it also has the torbensen geardrive rear axle same as yours, my truck was a 3000lb rated truck a fellow 11X republic truck owner told me what carb to look for which is a zenith T4 which i have just had one offered to me and another forum member has part of the mag quadrant but the levers are of an earlier model, but its great to be able to find the parts i have
