  1. Well, how about that? A monogram radiator mascot with your initial on it! What will they think of next? Thanks for all of your help- Paul
  2. Can someone help me to identify this radiator mascot? The Boyce Motor Meter is in excellent shape. The dog handles are made of pot metal. What car manufacturer takes the "M"? Thanks
  3. I have a 1924 Gardner touring car with a Lycoming, 4 cylinder engine, nbr CE7525. I am looking for a Westinghouse distributor body, type JN series. I am in need of the steering spark controls and rod. Similar steering wheel, controls, and column were used on Hupmobiles, Reos, Any help would be appreciated- thanks
  4. Looking for a good 1929 Studebaker, President, model FE camshaft. The engine is an inline straight 8 and a 337.0 cu inch. Thanks for helping
  5. I do have a Wagner generator I bought several years ago. It was marked studebaker and I thought it would fit my car at the time and it does not. The generator will have to be rebuilt and I am not electrical savy to talk on diodes. It is for sale.
  6. Try vincent@cassidybros. com for wheels. His name is Vin Cassidy. He works quite a lot and may be hard to reach. His telephone number is 978-758-0834. good luck
  7. We are in need of the valve cam lobes and compression release cam lobe for this engine. The cam lobes have been "overly repaired" and we are not getting the correct valve clearance. If anyone has a engine breakdown diagram with the valve lobes to machine new lobes, or a good set of lobes that we can use to have another set machined would be appreciated. I have sent out an inquiry on the www.hcca.org site to the person in Canada who owns this same model car. No response by email or telephone. Keeping history alive- Paul
  8. Is the car still for sale? thanks Paul
  9. I am inquiring if there is a one cylinder car club? I tried to google it, but can not find any more information. Is it part of the AACA? I am trying to do some research on an engine. Thanks
  10. Ok Y'all, First off is that I may not be the brightest light bulb in the 6 pack, but I would like to share with you what I learned over the last two days. I had to use a mirror to find the allen head hex screw that holds on the light switch. I am a hands on person and I got a lead from Ebay.com on a light switch that was flipped over to show the allen head hex screw. ( I try to use everything available when searching for information and ebay is one of them.) I was able to remove the light handle. Next, was the nut that hold everything together. I reread Matt's email an
  11. Thank you for everyone's help and support- Paul
  12. I found more of the instrument light switch and not the head light light switch. Thank you. So, now please let me entertain you with my light switch problem. There is not power coming from the switch. I read up on the thermal circuit breaker (vibrating set of points) in the switch from the shop manual. There is no vibration heard or felt in the light switch. I went to drive it and the parking lights came on and not the head light. I closed the switch and pulled to the parking lights and the lights came on for a second and quit. I did this with the engine not running so I heard nor f
  13. I am in need of a new light switch. The thermal vibrator does not work any more and I am not getting any current through the switch. The two major parts suppliers do not have the a reproduction switch. The off make reproduction ones are not designed to incorporate the instrument panel light switch. Ebay has nothing and have tried several places. Any suggestions on how to adapt a new reproduction one to incorporate the instrument panel light switch, or where I may purchase new old stock, or whatever. Thanks Paul
  14. I have a 1929 studebaker president model fe with dual ignition. polarity is positive terminal to ground chassis. Wire from ignition switch to driver side coil is attached to the negative post due to positive to ground system. Jumper wire from driver side coil to passenger side coil is attached to the negative post. (power into coils) Turn over engine with ignition on and only high tension spark is on the passenger side coil. Took simple test light to make sure that there is a flow of electricity to negative coil posts. Positive side of each coil goes to the distributo
  15. Thank you for the feedback as you have answered a couple of my questions about the product. I do plan to call them- Paul
  16. I am looking for feedback if anyone has used ceramic coating for exhaust manifold. The manifold I own thin walled and pitted. I have seen a few ads in Hemmings Motor News and am seeking pro and con on this process. Thanks
  17. Go to the Gardiner web site and look under technical information. You should find tune up information there. I posted an inquiry about the Gardner cars on the AACA general forum about a 1924 Gardner tour delux I found in NH. The biggest problem with these cars are the oil pump which is made of pot metal and is pushed into the engine block. It is a pressed fit and will break, so do not mess with it if it is in good shape. I found a service manual for a Auburn 4-44 that gave much needed information to tune up and service this car. Bob Gardner put it on the website. Apparently, the lycom
  18. I have a 1929 Studebaker President with a serious crack in the exhaust manifold. It was brazed several years ago,but the crack expanded. A couple of contacts have suggested a business that bakes the manifold and then welds it. The manifold is thin walled in some areas. Is there a recommendation for any one who can do the job.? Thanks for the help Paul
  19. Do you have a rotor cap WW18 for the westinghouse distributor and do you have a cap as well? Do you buy electrical parts from customers? Thanks Paul Baresel 207-727-5855
  20. I have a 1925 Gardner model 5 (C5). It has a 4 cylinder Lycoming engine model CE. Many ignition parts are made by Westinghouse. I have a part number for the distributor off of a wiring diagram for a 1923-25 Gardner. It is a Westinghouse distributor number 290356. On my distributor it has type JN. The body is broken on my distributor and I need to replace it. I understand the Lycoming engine was used on several vehicles. So if anyone has one to sell, I will be very grateful or help to send me in the right direction to find one. Thanks
  21. I have a 1924 Gardner C5, with a Lycoming CE, 4 cylinder engine. I would like to purchase these points and other ignition parts for this engine. How do we go about the transaction as I a m not a strong computer use. Also, I am looking for the distributor Westinghouse model nbr 290356. I would like to purchase the distributor if you have it or can you tell me where I may locate one for sale? thanks Paul
