  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 company evolving from one product to another, you know the name Mott from their fruit and juices in the grocery store. Well, Mott started out making automobile wheels and axles around 1900. Look, they are still in business. Believe me I am far from being a know it all. It's just that some of our predecessors were really something.
  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 carburetor.
  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 the piston displacement (piston area X stroke X number of cylinders) and upon the service for which the engine is to be used. The capacity of the carburetor is gauged by the throat diameter of the large venturi. To find the size carburetor needed for a given engine, find the cubic inches piston displacement from tables on page 1047; table below will then show the carburetor size and venturi size recommended. (For bore and stroke of different size engines see pages 1058, 966, 996; for make and size of carburetor see pages 1055, 966, 996, of Dyke's Auto Encyclopedia.) Example: Given a four-cylinder engine of 33/t" bore, 5" stroke, installed in a pleasure car. The piston displacement, according to table on page 1047, is 221 cubic inches, and from the table below, we find this to require a 12" venturi, in a 1%" size type "0" or "OS" carburetor. If the engine were used on a truck, it would probably be better to use a 33" venturi, in a type "M" or "MB" carburetor. The tables on this page are computed in the case of the Model "O" carburetor for maximum torque and volumetric efficiency at 1,700 r.p.m. and for Models "M" and "MB" carburetors at 1,200 r.p.m. For faster and slower speeds, a corresponding addition or reduction should be made in piston displacement value before selecting the venturi size. Larger venturi sizes may be used on engines which have proper application of exhaust heat on the intake manifold. For fewer than four cylinders on one carburetor, use the same venturi size as required for four cylinders of the same bore and stroke.
  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.
