  1. I am restoring a set of lights for a 1911 Model and I need a source for new beveled glass lenses. They are 4" x 4" square. I also need the red faceted jewel that goes in the door on a John Brown Model 85 sidelight. I will be at Hershey so if you sell these items or know of someone that does I would appreciate some more info. Alan Woolf
  2. Kudos to the Richmond Region for a great week of touring. They did a great job of having everything organized from accurate and clear directions to people placed to help direct parking. Plus we were treated to a lot of genuine hospitality. And we got to meet some new friends. Alan
  3. Want to buy four (4) front spring U bolts as shown in photo and drawing. These need to be for a two inch wide, three inch tall spring. The dimensions need to be close to what is shown but some variation might be acceptable. Please contact me by PM if you have some of these parts available. Thanks, Alan Woolf (email)

  5. Has registration for the 2012 Reliability Tour in Richmond begun? Earlier word was that registration would open around the 1st of May. Alan
  6. Get it soda blasted. That process very well for my American engine.
  7. Mine came yesterday. Alan
  8. The Victory Six was introduced in 1928 before Chrysler took over Dodge. It was the mid priced car in the Dodge Brothers line for 1928 and was carried over into 1929. My father has owned a 1928 sedan since 1972 when he purchased it with 8000 miles on it. It has been driven a lot over the years but never fully restored. It is one of he best and most reliable cars of the era. It has a six cylinder engine, seven main bearing with full pressure lubrication. The body was made by Budd and is all steel. Brakes are four wheel Lockheed hydraulic from the factory. They are also very attractive and
  9. Congratulation Kent. I know you have been looking for an engine for some. I am glad the lead panned out. Alan
  10. I can probably muddy the waters just a bit more. The two TH engines that I have are 6 cylinder T heads. One is 4-1/2 X 6 (572 ci) and the other is 4 X 6 (452 ci). The bigger engine dates to 1915 and the smaller engine is dated 1913. The prefix on the serial number of the smaller engine is RS and the bigger engine has a T prefix on the serial number. Based on the serial numbers of the few existing engines that I have an RS, S, or T prefix seems to be pretty consistent for the big six cylinder T heads that Teetor Hartley built. The six cylinder engines introduced by TH in 1913 for the 1914
  11. Want to buy a differential cover only as used on the 1928-29 DB Victory and Standard series cars. See photos. Bolt circle is 11-5/8 inches and there are 10 bolt holes in the cover. Alan Woolf americanunderslung@earthlink.net

  13. Kent, Did you get any under hood photos? Alan
  14. Just FYI I am a Stanley owner and have been playing with them for 25+ years. The vehicle shown in the ad appears to be built on a 735 or 740 Stanley chassis. The body is something someone created and it is not even a good representation of an express body. Plus there were no express trucks built with flat front condensers. Also the express trucks had 30hp engines. I feel pretty confident the car shown is a 20hp chassis. The Stanley express trucks were the same as Mountain Wagon without the seats. Mountain Wagons were built through 1915 or 16 and all that exist are non-condensing even th
  15. Boilers are running around 5K. This car is basically a 735 or 740 Stanley chassis with a pretty crude body. Mid 20's would be a pretty big price especially if you had to replace the boiler. Plus I think it would be a hard one to sell if you evey needed to. There is just too much that is not Stanley. Alan
  16. Check with Hagerty. They insured a car for me that I purchased as a basket case and is currently under restoration. JC Taylor would not talk to me about insuring it even though I have been a long time customer. Alan
  17. Barry, Check with Jerry at Universal Carnegie Manufacturing in Pittsburgh. He makes some cores and can source others. Universal Carnegie Alan
  18. John, First let me thank you and Greg for this ongoing forum thread. It has been interesting and I am particularly enjoying the posts about the Matheson engine work. You are probably wondering why I have posted a photo of a fire truck. Greg will know why. This is the Robinson “Jumbo” fire truck that he restored when he was working at White Post. That brings on the rest of the story. Around 1985 I was at the AACA Annual meeting in Philadelphia and attended one of the seminars. Greg was at the seminar and I recognized him from the series of articles about the restoration of Jumbo that had
  19. John, What's the story on the Matheson? They are very interesting car and quite rare. Alan

  22. New non potmetal starter endplates have been made for the Victory Six NE starters. I don't know what the current availability is but check with Romar. They specialize in DB parts. Also the technical person at the Dodge Brothers Club should be able to help you find a source. Alan
  23. Try Randall Anderson. He rebuilds and manufactures early coils. rvmodelt@netsync.net Alan
