  1. That makes sense. I bet someone used it to replace the handle to an old clock key.
  2. I need some help to identify the item in the picture. I believe it is a clock key but not sure. It is embossed with Ford in script.
  3. Jay, I am interested. I sent you a private message.
  4. You are probably right. At least in the short term.

  6. Thanks for the info. I have joined the pre-1940 group on Facebook. Seems like the Holley NH was a replacement for this motor.
  7. We have found a Prestolite tank locally. So making progress. We are trying to determine if we have the right carb. What is on it is a Holly NH. Not sure if this is original. Can any one tell me? Also, what kind of pressure regulator was on the Prestolite tank? Thanks.
  8. Jim, thanks for the reply and pictures. I will try to find out if there is a plate and try and get some photos. -George
  9. I am assisting a friend with a restoration on what is believed to be a 1908 International Auto Buggy or Wagon. This vehicle does have the short hood in front. We are looking for a some pictures of various parts. There are two linkages on the carburetor, but only one is connected and we believe we are missing some of the linkage. Also, on the right side of the vehicle under the running board was a tank of some sort, brackets are there, but no tank. Lastly, the headlights are there, but the oil buggy lights mounted to the firewall are missing. We have the brackets, but the lamps are gone. Can anyone tell me who made these lamps and what model? Were they made by International or someone like Dietz? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
  10. Tom, I will check sizes on my pullers today. I have a 30, 31, and 32 truck. Do you know the model of your truck and are front and rear hubs the same size ? This info can help sort this out. Also a friend of mine said they met you in Macungie and that you may need some help with headlights. I may be able to help.
  11. Steakside, on my 30 & 31, dash plate was nickel and radiator shell was chrome. Interesting on the dash, it's nickel but then painted black to only leave the raised ring shiny.
  12. Stakeside, did you need to rework the wood sandwiched around the rear windows between the inside and outside panel? Mine was pretty rotted. This is where the original was a type of layered plywood. We reproduced in oak. I will get some pictures in the next few days.
  13. I have had all the cab wood redone at a local Mennonite wood shop. I provided the original wood as patterns. I have kept the patterns. Although, they were rough. However, when you are ready, I can provide measurements. I had everything done in white oak. Most of the original seemed to be ash or white oak. The roof was a challenge but came out great. Side members are heavy pieces bent. Bends are achieved with kerf cuts. My wood worker did a great job. The wood sandwiched in the rear of the cab was plywood. Again, we made the same shape and joints as original, however, made from oak for longevity.
  14. Dave, never found a manufacturer on the mirror. I did find one in Hershey in the fall that was copper and very close to the same 4 rivets on the back. It's been a tough winter in the North East. I retired early last month and have been busy getting affairs in order. As weather warms up I plan to get much more time on the trucks. I have made progress making door thresholds. I have two sets started but need a warm day to finish them up. Made one for me and one for another member. Hopefully next week we will get above freezing and I can finish them up.
