  1. Looked at my frame having pictures above. I do have the plate on the drivers side. Has 4 holes and the plate is riveted to the frame. The middle of this bracket is where the battery box is attached at the front. My assumption was this was reinforcement for the weight of the battery box. The rear two holes are where the front running board bracket is attached using the same two rivets. There is a fifth hole in the bracket and frame between the rivets and this is where the battery box bracket is attached with a long bolt thru the frame and bracket. Interesting my frame had two cracks
  2. I have a 1918 touring frame, made in March 1918. Other than the battery box there are no reinforcing plates.
  3. When you posted this topic, made me think. When mine was taken apart the sequence was engine:support:bellhousing. However looking in my 1927 Mechanics Instruction Manual, it shows multiple plate clutch models as: engine:bellhousing:support. It was confusing at best. I then read the section about how to remove the transmission, and there is a difference between the 114” and 116” wheelbase cars. The 114” says to drop the transmission by unbolting and pulling rearward. For the 116 “ is different. The summary is that it appears the 114” sequence is engine:support:bellhousing while th
  4. I have a pair of the internal cast iron brakes that are rusty but are in otherwise good condition. One has the toggles in it and the other is missing. All the springs are reproduced. They would need to be relined. Let me know.
  5. Looking for a right rear fender for my 1918 Dodge Roadster, anybody have one they would be willing to sell? The parts book shows 1918, 1919, 1920 and first part of 1021 are the same number so would work. Thanks so much.
  6. There is a metal concave ring at the rear of the transmission and in front of the u joint that is a seal between the trans and u joint space as I understand. Maybe i am missing some thing but can not figure out how this seal is held in place? JIM

  8. My literature shows for 1916 the panes are 10"x39" both upper and lower. Shows the same for a 1917 and these are for touring as roadsters different. Hope this helps.
  9. I am in need of an upholstery pattern for my 1917 DB roadster. I think anywhere from 1917 to early 20's would work. Maybe someone has a pattern from a prior restoration I may be able to borrow? Mine is completely missing. Have pattern for back support and springs from Roger and have seat springs but back is major problem. Thanks for any help.
  10. Am trying to get correct wheels for my 18 Dodge roadster. Has wood felloe and have found all the parts except need 14 or more correct felloe bolts and rectangular washers. The bolts are 2 7/8" long and have a flatter head than others I have found. Has splined shaft which is a bit longer as well. Image of correct and not correct bolts attached. Please let me know if available and thanks in advance.
  11. I am restoring a 1918 Roadster and am trying to get correct wheels. Came with steel felloe 24" wheels and am gathering parts for correct wood felloe 26" wheels. I have hubs, hub bolts, lugs, felloe bands and split rims. Have half of the correct felloe bolts but need at least 14 more. They are different from later style in that they are shorter (2 7/8") and head is flatter. They use a oblong steel washer with oblong hole. The correct one is in the image on the right compared to later on the left. Both have splines but correct one has longer splines. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  12. My parts book says the 115 ran thru at least 1920 but do not have later book. There was an early Van Sicklin but appears otherwise speedos were needle with earlier white face and later black. Jim
  13. It appears my 1918 Dodge roadster has the wrong speedometer. The parts book looks like should be a needle speedo with black face. Mine is a barrel speedo and looks like possibly a 1920 or so. Interesting someone added a right angle drive at the transmission since, from a prior thread, the 1918 is a left turning speedo and the later right? Looking for correct one if I can find and willing to swap my later model if helps. Also looking for some of the headlight rim springs. Any help gratefully appreciated. Jim
  14. Thanks so much. When you say bevel facing in, does that mean in toward bearing or in toward the car? I assume innermost also means toward the car?
  15. I am replacing my front hubs on 1918 roadster to original. Unable to find good image of inner felt and washer setup. Are there 2washers on the front? If so do they both set on the shoulder against which the bearing inner surface sets? On the rear the cops are in the hub but a second washer as well. Any help greatly appreciated. JIMJIM
