I do have a jack for a 1914 locomobile, I will check it out when I get home. when I bought my loco, I received a bunch of tools with it. most appear to be of the era but not marked loco Mike

  13. it looks like I will reconsider radials, but is there a better brand or tread type that will give me a better ride?. The tires now make my front end go all over the place when I hit an imperfection in the road
  14. I am working on a 1914 locomobile and need to get some new leaf springs made. seems simple enough, I have the old ones which are very straight forward. As I have found out - most just order something from a book- very few actually make them. looking for some one in eastern Pa or NJ thanks - Mike

  19. I have used powder coating on wire wheels - they sandblasted them and powder coated for $75 per wheel and a couple day turn around. also had a big frame done- $400. complete. I think it's great clean quick and fairly inexpensive
  20. I purchased a 1914 Locomobile and I am trying to find the original purchaser of the car. I have got back to 1920. it was purchased by a wealth family in NYC , in 1920 it was given to the chauffeur as a wedding present. I have found the chauffeurs name , but I am figuring that if you needed a license it may have an owner on the info. I have tried the ny city dmv , and they don't seem to have any info pre 1980 thanks- Mike
  21. I am trying to find someone that makes correct running board rubber for a 1936 Packard conv sedan with a 148 wheel base. I had bought them years ago and I need a new set. thanks- Mike
  22. Al - saw you are looking for a rear fender, I may have what you need. I have a 1914 Limo that I had some one from the car club make me a set of rear fenders. He is in Ohio and I am in NJ , he copied them off a car in Ohio but it was the wrong year. I can send you pictures and dimensions if you want- it is a pair I believe the car he used was a 1912 Mike
