  1. Atlas Tack Company 1895 to 1985 . Very hard to find good tacks today.
  2. It serves me right for not being a gardener. Thank you for the tip.
  3. classiccardatabase.com lists 1913 as "multiple disc, dry plate" If the case doesn't have a fill & drain plug, it needs a seal and washing.
  4. It just cannot get any better than that ! Thanks to Jeff todays hero.
  5. The Pierce Arrow Society site has a Technical Committee that will answer questions of all things Pierce Arrow.
  6. https://www.modeltford.com/item/5055DIO.aspx This link is for a diode with insurcrions. A common upgrade for Ford T & A. Searching those forums bring many results. You can also add voltage regulation within the cutout housing. Positive & negative ground too.
  7. What sort of trouble can one find in the back seat of a Studebaker ?

  11. I have a 1921 Dykes manual with a page on Premier clutch adjust, but I cannot get it to attach to this thread reply ! Damn the luck ! Faster would be to drive over from Pittsburgh and hand it to you. Find the Dykes manual near you. Jack
  12. Wait ! What ? I thought I was the Idiot. This fellow changes his name and poof........he claims the title. Not just like that. I just wish Peter could fix me . Too much to ask, I know.....

    oil pan

    No kidding ! That is not the oil pan , that is the clutch housing. The cotter pin is there to rattle and keep the hole open for oil to drain. Ford Model A is the same pin.
  15. Does this ignition circuit have a capacitor in it somewhere ? If there is one from 1917 it's bad. It would go bad from sitting on the shelf that long. The cap should have a vent hole in the side to vent ionized gas buildup. I have to doubt the burn spot is liable to affect performance. Nice pictures. Your question is well done !
  16. Tighten until the threads just begin to smoke. then backoff 1/4 turn.
  17. GOOGLE aluminum honeycomb. Many choices of sizes and thickness.
  18. It seems as if General Burkhalters' widow has decided to sell the car.
  19. A wonderful puzzler ! Is the coiled tube threaded into the threaded tube with the nuts ? How could the nuts be used unless it came apart ?
  20. Oh to be in Tampa now that April's there...........
  21. I know. I know. APRIL FOOL ! Congratulations on a find and a story never to happen again.
  22. No cast iron exhaust manifold ? I've never seen that done on an auto engine !
  23. Even with the Trippe lights ? Well..........OK leave the lights there.
  24. Felt weather strip adhesive backed. Or neoprene foam strip. Many shopping choices.
