  1. Who did the work for you ? Can you get the contact info for me ? Bob F.
  2. Looking for info on how to drill and dimple 24" diam clincher rims for 30 x 3 tires. I can't seem to find rims predrilled (40 Spoke) & there aren't too many people who can do it . Those that can ask a steep price. So I thought I would look for info on how to do it myself. I have my hubs and an old 23" rim to duplicate the pattern. Bob
  3. Still looking for an early 1900's planetary transmission. Any leads would be appreciated. Thanks, Bob Ferry Louisville,Kentucky
  4. Since my hopes of finding 34 x 3 beaded edge tires are fading. I really want to use 28 " rims, so I thought maybe I would look for a supplier or manufacturer of solid tires or 3 " round tire stock to put on 28 " rims . Does anyone know of a source ? I found a company in Selina , Kansas which may be able to help. I will contact them this week. Bob
  5. Wayne, I am using a horizontally opposed 2 cylinder engine from the early 1900's. It is a Brennan.( 1904 I beleive) I am now also looking for a 2 speed planetary transmission for the project. So if you happen to have an extra one sitting around, just let me know. Bob
  6. J & P cycles states the inside diameter of the tire is 28" and Coker states the overall diameter is 28 inches. I am not sure who is correct. If the i.d. is 28 inches, then the o.d. should be 34 inches.
  7. Building a Olds Pirate Racer replica & would really like to have the orjg size tires/wire spoke wheels. Bob
  8. Looking for 4 tires 34" X 3" any color and any tread as long as all 4 tires are the same. Metric tire sizes willl work also close to 34 x 3 :cool: Bob F. Louisvill, Ky
  9. David, Check with Dixie Gun Works in Union City Tennessee. This huge gun shop has a antique car museum in its building with lots of parts hanging from the cieling. They have a Marmon on display with their 20 plus other cars. Maybe they can help, if not maybe they can give some leads as where to get parts.[ Good luck... Bob F. Lou., Ky. QUOTE=dpeeler;1186801]Ron - I realize this is a very old posting, but thought there might be a chance you checked it occasionally. I am looking for 34B parts - engine and headlight. Any chance you have extras or know where I might find? Thanks, David
  10. Frank, I do not think the axle will work for me, but I am interrested in the flywheel . I will check later when you post a photo. Thanks, Bob F.
  11. Frank, I am one of the two people george is helping. I am building an Olds Pirate Racer replica. Need an 18 " flywheel and a planetary transmission from a CDO. I will chain drive the car just like the orig car, also just like the replica Steve Moskowitz built. Can you send pictures ? Thanks, Bob Ferry Louisville, Kentucky
