  1. Hello. I have both an 18 and a 19 Oakland. I lean toward it being a 1919. They visually were very similar, but there are a couple of quirky items in your picture that are like my 19.
  2. I failed to mention mykmlifestyle completely rebuilt the Atwater-Kent unisparker distributor, coil box, and ignition switch on my 1915 Saxon and the coils for my 1918 and1919 Oaklands. Check out their website. You will not find a better facility PERIOD. The quality is second to none.
  3. Arthur Atwater Kent, Sr. was an inventor and radio manufacturer. He was born in Vermont in 1873 and passed away in 1949. Mr. Kent's interest in automobiles led to his patent of the modern ignition coil as well as patents and the manufacture of other ignition components. I have a 1915 Saxon automobile with an Atwater-Kent ignition system in it. Income from his ignition systems enabled him to enter the radio business, where he built very high quality radio receivers, components, and cabinets to house the radios. They basically shut down in 1936. To give you an example of a comp
  4. That's ok. Doing research is right up my alley. I enjoy this.
  5. Hello. If you sign in to www.smclassiccars.com/other-makes, there are 2 of those cars, 1 unrestored and 1 restored. Hope these pictures help. Specify Elmore Model 25 Touring 1911.
  6. Hi again. Believe me I am no carburetor guru. However I would go with the smaller venturi. If I looked up the correct picture of your engine the intake runners are long and thus the fuel mixture would not have manifold heat to help the fuel vaporize. I think the performance of the car will suffer if you try to compensate for an oversize carburetor by leaning it out. My experience with that needle valve is that you are going to have a flat spot and the engine will gag when you try to accelerate with that thing leaned out. I think you will have better adjustability with the smaller carbure
  7. Hello. I would suggest you read over this information. It is pretty straight forward. If the people at Zenith used the Bore - Stroke - RPM etc. info you gave them this is probably how they arrived at their recommendation. I use Zenith universal carburetors on my 3 'teen cars and they are great. I bought my carburetors from Automotive Test Systems. I have talked to ATS and Mike Framer at Zenith. They are good people. I hope this helps you. If you still have questions, I'll try to help. Carburetor & Venturi Sizes Size of carburetor: The carburetor capacity required depends upon t
  8. The total length end to end is 27 1/2".
  9. Is there a group with an interest in the Cole Automobile? I am interested in the 8-50 1916 model V-8.

    Could you please tell me how to remove and install the generator. I know it is chain driven and I don't see how you can get the generator out without disengaging the timing chain. Thanks
  12. Thank you very much!! Most appreciated.
  13. Is there someone who can repair the cord retractor and switches on Auto Reelites? They were an accessory on Model T's to mount on the windshield upright. You could unhook the light and use as a trouble light and the cord would reel back in like a window shade. Any help would be appreciated.
  14. Hi, I know my trailer is longer but I have a 28' trailer of which the front 8' is a lounge area.
