  1. sent you a PM good luck with your Brush John
  2. I replaced a cast iron piston in a 1907 Brush with aluminum piston. Several reasons for this replacement but one of the first and foremost is there is less stress on the crankshaft because of the lighter piston, second you will have better compression and oil wash on cylinder wall because of the modern rings. I believe you may have the spark advance to high, try reducing the amount of advance and it should help with the vibration. (especially if you are experiencing the vibration while the car is not under load). You will find that there is a "sweet spot" for the advance and it is usually much LESS than you think for maximum power assuming the engine is properly timed. I did have the flywheel balanced when I rebuilt my motor and found it was only off by 1 gram which we corrected by drilling. Amazing considering the era! Good luck with your project.

  12. My 1907 has a 5 sided Briscoe radiator. The radiators changed thru the years from brass to a steel shell for one change, and from straight side flat top to rounded top as on your 12, which I assume has a steel shell., John Ullrich Alden Illinois

  16. Thanks Dave to help identify....I know it is from a 37, however as I said believed it may fit 36. The pipes from the top tank do come straight out, so perhaps it will work for a 38 & 39. measurements available with detailed photos

  18. This came out of a 37 Ford Sedan, probably will fit other years. It is original and rust free, all the fins are perfect, side shrouds and cap are there. I purchased it with a V8 60 motor and have no need for it. $275.00 plus the ride. Call for pics and any info. 815 403 3803 John
  19. I brought a car into the US taken apart and in boxes, etc. There was as extra engine block with the package. I spent 6 hours at the US customs in Buffalo trying to get certification and or inspections to enter the US., even though the project was a 1924 (over 25 years old no problem they say) because I was told that I had two cars and only one bill of sale. Lesson is be very specific when the bill of sale is prepared.
  20. Looking for a vintage Big Race Car. These were built as race cars often from stock car chassis of the era and used up until and into the late 40s, project or what have you, with or with out drive train.
  21. caddyshack...I guess I am not much of a club guy, but have attempted to respond to people with questions about our little cars. I was a member of the US club for years and with the tragic passing of Mac, the US club seems to have died too. The Australian seemed to be interested in promoting his book. I just never connected with them in joining their organization. I agree that this forum seems to be a good location to reach out for information about our cars. 1909 BC Brush 1908 B Brush 1910 D Brush 1907 K Cadillac ( motor design by Brush)
  22. Great Car George, You have got to love this one you've had it a long time, sure you want to let it go? What a candidate for the VSCDA vintage racers circuit. Rare and the real deal, I'm sure you will find a good home for it.
