  1. I own a 1913 auto wagon and have some IH literature.  I believe the 1907,8,9 had a Patten leather buggy front.  The short hood was 1910 and 11. The 1912-15 had a bigger hood and radiator (fake on air cooled.)  I have serial number lists if the plate is still on the car.  The auto buggy body had a “u” shape or dipped between the seats.  The auto wagon was straight back from the front seat .

     

    There is a good instruction and parts book available from Binder books. It shows the 1912 but may be of help.

     

    The 2 rods on the carb connect together with a clamp. They join together towards the front of the car.post-104982-0-19673300-1451775195_thumb. .  Im glad my two rods had not been disturbed so I didn’t have to figure that one out.

     

    I am not aware of any tank under the running board.

     

    My wagon has 3 tier Castle side lights.  Several brands will fit the brackets

     

    Here is a registry of auto wagons, unfortunately many have the wrong year, we take what the owners state their year is  http://vihtr.com/1907-1915/

    The engine is 2 cycle hand start with the wheel attached to the crank shaft. The wires are attached to a set of points designed for a buzz coil ignition. It looks like the engine needs to be geared down with a jack shaft to turn the back wheels. That being said, you could have a fun project making it run. It is definitely unique and people would be interested in it.


  3. I need two wheels for a Bliss Surrey. Any help would be appreciated.

    I believe that Stutzman's wheel works made the original Bliss wheels. They are still in business and can make new wheels for you. contact Noah Stutzman 330-897 1391. they are located in Baltic Ohio Jim
