  1. Not sure if there is anything odd enough or good enough for your collection but have a look
  2. Thanks for all the input. greatly appreciated Don
  3. Do you have a picture of one or a model #. I assume it will be gear driven. I posted several generators a few months back.
  4. Thanks g that is the type of detail I was looking for.... I will have to check into the condenser thing....
  5. Do you have a car that uses this engine?
  6. Great to hear from you. I look forward to hearing more about your car. Was it an Ontario car or did it come from the west. There was one out hear that I lost track of when the gent after he died and his family sold the car.... I have extra engine parts for the most part but no extra generators or starters. Mine is a long way from running at this point....There are a number of older threads on the vacuum fuel pumps. i am told they work well if well sealed. I expect there is a process to get them started very spring but I don`t know it yet. As for the fuel guage... if you have one in any condition save it and work on fixing it. I am doing one from a similar unit I found a number of years ago it is a work in progress. I assume your car has been restored. do you know when? Look forward to chatting. I will try and call on the weekend.
  7. A google search shows this business as permanently closed. let me know contact information if this is incorrect Thanks for your input
  8. Part of the reason I restore cars is to do as much as possible myself and learn along the way how to do things. I have a rivet machine for brakes, just need the parts. I do appreciate your thoughts. Thanks Don
  9. I have 3 coils . 2 are similar one is correct but couldn" t find it today and the forth is the condition of the original. I Have identified 6 spots on the coil and tested the resistance between all of them. Most were infinite resistance. Both coils measured the same between similar points. My ohm meter is old but i did put in a new battery. When I touched the probes it measured 70 ohms When I touched E to F it measured 70 ohms When I measured across the resistor it also measured 70 ohms ...I took the resistor off to measure resistance. Point A to D measured 400 ohms point C to D measured 400 ohms Oll other combinations were Infinity ( The needle didn`t move at all) Are these coils good or do I need to do other tests?
  10. I really appreciate seeing new finds like this .. It is a very nice unit. I agree with the comment to drive it cleaned up as is for a while as long as it is safe. Have fun.
  11. I need 2 inch linings on the outside The inside is 1 3/4 inchwide material Please send cost details
  12. Thanks for the input Do you counter sink the rivets like the more modern types?
  13. I am getting ready to reline the brakes and emergency brakes on my 1919 Mclaughlin The original brake shoe lining material was a woven material. I was wondering the good and bad of going to a more modern brake lining material like used in the video link here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yh_FEQJVW4k I worry about finding the correct width of woven brake lining and I am also worried about it tending to unravel at the ends when you put in the rivets. The other consideration is that the thicnkess of the hubs is not that thick and more modern linings may tear through the original hub material. I will work on getting pictures Your insight will be appreciated
