  1. My notes not any real help--- I'd forgotten a 1905 entry saying Milw Mtr & Mfg Co was incptd as Milw Motor Co, so apparently one company after all... I have no history or dissolution info...they were passing around a "very atrractive catalog" in Oct 1903, supposedly doing a good business in the Midwest, and wer still listed in Buyers Directories in 1915...you might try oldmarineengine as they were into gasoline marine motors as well as auto engines... Std Cat says they also built the Monarch car in Milwaukee 1903-04, nut decided to stick with engines. Std cat had no comments
  2. A 36 King Prod catalog has one listing for 1916-23 V12, listing models 225, 235, 325, 335 Twin 6...if includes yours might broaden your search...(1915 125,135 Twin 6 shows different piston)...
  3. Oddly enough, you might try the Pierce-Arrow people... , A 36 King Prod catalog lists one 29-33 Stude 8 (Pres 8, 80, 90, 91, 92) that shares the piston ass'bly with var 29-33 Stude trucks, Pierce-Arrow cars and trucks... Valves listing isn't that definite but seem to match altho spring change at eng FE22087 Bearings ??? can't compare as P-A bearings section only lists one 6 cyl (weird---P-A piston ass'bly goes to 36, valves only to 32, one bearing listed 6cyl 21-28???)..... Another oddity---optional alum piston offered for Stude in Stude section, NOT listed in P-A secti
  4. There were two Milwaukee Motors – I think one the Milwaukee Motor Co and the other the Milwaukee Motor and Manufacturing Co, operating in roughly the same period, both producing inline fours per their advertising... I think. I can't lay hands on my M notebook; will dig it out and reply this PM...
  5. Yard art inner tube tire has hole in its side?? Put a boot in it (make your own if have none) paint whatever shows black if wrong color shows....we drove on tires with holes in sides, altho sometimes had to go to reliners or tire-in-tire (hard to do without being bumpy).. Doesn't everyone have a few old tire boots in the basement??..
  6. FLYER: Yes, and if I remember correctly Foley(??) offered that service too... I was surprised the 36 catalog didn't mention the replacement inserts should be fitted by a machine shop, but it may've been so obvious it didn't have to be mentioned..... I'm still sorting out Chrysler inserts; per my catalogs (weak reeds to lean on) some 32s had inserts but not all...
  7. :Looking at my admittedly incomp0lete H-S list, two possibilities show... Their "I" a 31/4 b9re in a 1917 catalog... Their 2700. a 3/4 x 5 in a 1930 catalog...possibly you can find images to compare... Whatever you're able to decide upon, you can Google for announcements of their introduction in the Auto mags of the Day...The Automobile, Motor Age, Motor Way ad nauseum...these introductory announcements usually contain enough desc/specs for a solid ID...
  8. The Kaiser Travelers (wagons) were functionally 3-door cars...outside they appeared regular 4-door sedans, but the spare was mounted on the inside of the left rear door, and it was either bolted or welded shut, did not open...had a 49, domn't recall ever looking to see if welded or what...
  9. Just out of curiosity, looked this up in a 36 King products catalog, and came up with questions... As to dates, 32 for Chrysler (8s), 34 for DeSoto and 33 for Dodge and Pymouth per that catalog... ALSO noted, under Dodge, two con rod bearings for various pre-1918 to 1928 4Cyl's, one of which is pictures and seems to have slightly raised sides similar to a main... ALSO noted each of the four had bearings listed as " insert type to replace Cast-in-rod bearings"... Both the "pre-28" bearings and the replacements were listed as inserts in the catalogs numerical index, no me
  10. Just ran across his old post by accident (ordinarily never check this section)... Lycoming parts generally not that easy to find; there was some commonality in engines, though, so if still looking for piston assembly, valves or bearings can check my old catalogs. If shared with other engine models may make search easier.....
  11. Dort seems to be one of the nicer "forgotten" cars; Std Cat calls it a "fine little car", m'f'd by J D Dort, fmly business associate and lifetime friend of Billy Durant...per Std Cat he liquidated his company in 1924, sold the factory in 1925 and died that year (wound up the company per poor health??)... The ad raises an interesting question: Std Cat says all 4s were Lycoming, and a couple parts catalogs agree... However, one catalog, a 1924 Houpert piston catalog (25 pgs of 55-70 listings per page) lists a Dort 4cyl, no years listed, 3 inch bore, with a code name that does not
  12. If you're not already a member check the Durant Club (forum on this site) as the W4 seems to've been largely; if not completely, made for Durant/Star... .. Have you tried Monte's Eqpmt, NW of Chicago, obsolete Cont'l pats dealer, and PA Ross Machinery in Dallas, longtime Cont;l dealer sometimes helpful?? Doubtful you'll find an overhaul set; if you're reduced to scrounging parts piecemeal, the W4 shares piston assembly, valves and bearings with some other Cont'l engines; can send list if you think helpful...
  13. EJB Yes, many thxx for the reminder the basic list was in the 12-77 issue, and I could blow it up enough to read all the names.. The copy of the list list I remember came up full size (after "checking the box on the page" per my notes) without having to blow up and squint (my set may have the capacity to sharpen fuzzy blowups but, if so, I've never learned to use it) so it may've died or been taken down in the years since. Again, many thxx!!.
  14. Several tears ago (Freudian slip??) I was in a Lycoming engine list on Hemmings Blog (per my notes) and now I can't get it to come up... It was a list of the engine models, 4s first, then 6s and then 8s, with dates introduced, CID, b/s, and cars/trucks known to use... It's not the article with just makes names or the SIA article... Per my notes it originally came up under Blog.Hemmings.com/Lycoming engines, but that and variations I've thought of don't work... Can someone tell me how to bring this article/list up (presumably by Jan Norbye, but not necessarily)... Man
  15. Geez, I WAS WRONG!!! Somehow I mentally jumped from starter to dist (that catalog had starter parts but no starter numbers)... That was not only wrong, but, worse, stupid... What can I saY?? My apologies sounds trite, and is... I'll be carefull to double check in the future...l
  16. Per a little Shurkit catalog 36 (both S1 abd S2) took AL, but shows two number---IGS40061 and 4006A-1, no info when changed (assuming A-1 some kind of improvement)...
  17. Another case of too much time on my hands (it's drizzling here)... Which 30 DeSoto engine???...the 1929/early 30 K 3x41/2 174.95 (depression hadn't really got started, that's a little engine) or the late 30 31/8x41/8??? That little one seems yo've been an orphan, but a similar b/s taking the same head gasket shows up for the larger one in a 30 Chrysler CJ, a Dodge 30 DD and some unidentified Dodge trucks...in case he needs to broaden his search, is it the same engine, a pull-out drop-in interchange, ot just similar but not similar enough??... So many questions, so little time...
  18. You might also check the Dodge Truck people... A 51 Fed-Mog bearing catalog says those bearings also fit' DeSoto SE 1934, SF,SG 1935, S1,S2 1936, and A whole raft of K and L Dodge 1-2 Ton trucks 34-36 using the T7, T15 and T27 engines...
  19. Re' your above reply: 1915 The Automobile article says the Briscoe had?would have a 3x31/2, the middle size Ferro. The 1917 Jackson had the middle size, the 3x... The 1916 Jackson is listed in the Std Cat V8s 1906-2002 (derogatory comments follow) as having a Ferro in both the 348 and 68, but gives two different non-Ferro b/s (other catalogs say Olds #44 and Northway 308, which seem to match b/s)... The 1916 Scps-Bth had the smallest Ferro, the 25/8.... The above partly from that so=called Std Cat, which should be titled Std Cat of Mainline V8s...278 pgs of mainlines
  20. Ran across this by accident... Got into Ferro (peripherally) filling out an early V8 file...there were three.. 8-35 25/8x33/4 35HP 163. 8-48 3x31/2 48HP 198 8-60 31/4x4 60HP 265 (per a listing of 1917 stock engines).. A 1917 ring catalog lists the 3x (which seems to be the Briscoe engine) as models 3 and 9, and the 31/4x as models 2 and 8. I have no idea what differences may exist in the separate model numbers; in the ring catalog 3 and 9 took the same rings (possibly engine only and unit power plant, big in those days??) My V8 file (assuredly incomplete) on
  21. In my magazine collecting days I was told, by a semi-amatuer printer, that the reason the colors were so much more brilliant/rich in the old magazines was because both the paper then was more absorbent but primarily because color printing was slower...the more modern high-speed printing precluded the "saturation" attained in the early days... Had a nice file of Leyendecker, Coles Phillips an others I can't recall, all sold over the tears and now fondly remembered...
  22. Since we're on the subject again, can anyone advise: (A) I thought the Class B Liberty ALWAYS came with the Cont'l (supposedly the Cont'l B2)...are the trucks with the Wauks and Wiscs different "class" (size, etc?) trucks OR Class bs with engines supplied by Wauk and Wisc but built to the B2 pattern?? (B) what are the Wauk and Wisc IDs if separate, different engines.. (C) as to the B2, has anyone determined whether the POSTWAR B2s installed in civilian trucks is the same as the military B2?? (inquiry to Club remains unanswered, possibly because their expert on TDY until 2021)

    Dort

    Don't have many Dort listings, and the ones I have disagree (one says L 31/4 bore, another says KB 31/2 bore) Unless has odd oiling system or odd oil pan, probably 5qts good start BUT to be safe re-post your question for oil capacity of Lyc 4cyl L or KB---chances are their 4s all pretty much same on oil capacity...... I'm assuming no oil pressure gauge...
  24. If it's any help in your search, a 36 catalog says your valves etc fit 1920-28 34, 34B, 74 and E75 mofels...

    Dort

    Dort was an assembled car; d'you know which engine is in it, and if engine in it is supposed to be original?? What kind of oil indicator does it have ---dipstick, float, petcocks---must've had some kind of original indicator.. How much ouil did you drain out of it??.
