  1. The Company that was related to Beaver is still in business - Filer and Stowell. They make stationary woodworking equipment. They are a good source of information on Beaver.
  2. Assuming the same sequence of FEDCO numbers was used on the Blackhawk series of cars in 1929, the car number would be 416032 - this number should be found stamped somewhere on a frame member of the car. For Stutz roadsters of the same year the number was stamped on the passenger side left bumper mount casting and the front engine mount frame bracket.
  3. Enger Motor Car Company - also in Cincinnati Ohio with Schacht - used a 40HP 4 cylinder L head Beaver engine (same engine as early Mercers before Mercer began producing their own T head) in their Model 40 series of cars from 1910 to 1914.
  4. What vehicle was this off of?
  5. If anyone is looking for a steering column I saw one for sale at a flea market in Southern Indiana yesterday. Looked very complete and restoreable. .
  6. I am discontinuing an ongoing 1979 450SL project I started several years ago. I have many new items that were purchased for the project that were never used. A short list is complete new interior (leather seats, carpet, repadded dash) Interior color is Bamboo (exterior color Colorado Beige). New soft top - color Black. Two new aftermarket front fenders, New timing chain and guides - motor mounts, reconditioned power steering pump Original parts from car - front grille, steering wheel, radio, all door panels and center console - if you are restoring a similar car I am interested in moving all of the above quickly - I am located 30 mile northeast of Cincinnati Ohio.
  7. Would like comments regarding whether on not the wooden dash on a 1910 Touring car would be finished (stained) wood, or if painted body color. I am in the beginning stages of restoring a 40HP Touring car. The original dash was apparently not usable and discarded by previous owner. The only piece of original wood from the car is at the bottom of the windshield frame. It is oak, very weathered, but does appear that it had been painted a dark color. Original literature from the car states the body was royal blue with cream frame. I also have black and white pictures of the car from the 1920's which would seem to indicate that the dash was very dark, but not conclusive. Virtually all of the restored cars that I have looked at have stained and finished wood dashes, but I am not sure if this is due to current tastes or if this treatment is accurate in regards to originality.
  8. I guess that definition of barn find would preclude what condition the barn was in also. In this case I believe the barn had lots of holes in the roof!! The car was definitely not a driver. In my neck of the woods I have seen a lot of cars in barns hence "barn find" - that aren't anywhere near drivers...
  9. Does anyone know who purchased the late 20's or early 30's barn find Pierce Arrow that was at Hershey? - I think it was in the Red field.
  10. Thanks for the reply. My 1910 Enger 40 originally was equipped with a Remy system which was wisely changed out for a Bosch DU 4 dual magneto long ago. I found a reasonably priced functioning Bosch A dual coil at Hershey last year, unfortunately it is nickel plated. The serial number on my coil is 78430, so I would have to assume it is newer than the coil in your pictures. If a nickel plated coil is appropriate for a 1910 car, I would just as well assume use it as is since it is in good shape, in lieu of finding a new coil or trying to disassemble it to de-plate it.
  11. I have a nickel plated Bosch A coil that I need to have de-plated back to brass. Has anyone successfully taken the faceplate, knobs and selector levers off without destroying the unit? Thanks in advance for any help offered.
  12. Mark' magneto in Colchester Ct had a table of rebuilt magnetos at hershey last year (probably every year). Several DU4's in both directions etc. They are pricey, but they are totally rebuilt and ready to go. It sounds like when the fellow "repaired" your magneto he assembled the armature in the wrong relationship to the coil, or there is a problem with the brush not making contact with the commutator. If the magneto was producing spark previously, it still should. Low tension Remy mags seem to be a problem getting repaired due to their later use of pot metal parts and general low quality components.
  13. I would highly recommend Ron Gocek. He is located in Pennsylvania.
  14. The unit running the laser is about the size of a car also. Three phase 480 volt will keep a lot of shops out of the market too. The video of laser seems to show it being almost hand help, but in reality the unit doing the removal is about 3 feet long. You wont be getting into tight quarters with it!
