  1. Of course it'll be of interest--you might also want to check with the Chev people...a couple of my old catalogs say "see Chev" , and one shows the 4cyl Sheriden taking the same head gasket as the 490 Chev (and it's bore matches another Sheriden listing that says Mason 4cyl, Mason being an engine builder for GM and apparently being involved in the early Chev engines. The Northway mentioned in the Std Cat was, per one catalog, one of the Northway V8s that went into the few Sheriden 8s built (if any besides prototypes/test vehicles).
  2. Don't have anything authoritative on the Pak-Age-Kar other than a nice thumbnail in Mroz; it seems to've had an array of engines during its life; parts books listing Pac/Pak-Age-Car/Kar (spellings differ) generally agree on: 1926 (Mroz) 28-29 (catalogs) original 2cyl hor-opposed (flat) maker unknown; Catalogs skip to 33 (Mroz says Stutz acq'd 32) 1933 Austin 4 2.2 bore 1934 Austin-Stutz 4 2.2 bore Catalogs don't show 1935 1936-37 Herc IXA 4cyl 3" bore Mroz says sold to Auburn Central Co (an E.L Cord Co) 1938 !938-41 Lycoming DC 4cyl 35/16 bore; HOWEVER, there are reports they also used Lycomin
  3. Well, I can offer a few suggestions (and my apologies if you're already doing/done them)... (1) the Calif Cptn Comm or it's equivalent (states all love their own nomenclature) will have a record of the formation of the business, its principals (whether or not they had any principles) and it's dissolution...if you had a middle initial Edward'd be easier to trace,and/or relatives with the same last name...("Cptn Comm's", despite that name, USUALLY also have records of partnerships, sole proprietorships, assumed business names, etc, BUT it's always best to inquire before sending money, if a fee i
  4. Sorry not to've replied earlier--haven't been in the site for a few days... (1) Cont'l C400s, AS SUCH, listed in my 38 Victor a 4cyl 33/8x4, were not a very popular engine...along with your Beacon, a few were put into Angleworm tractor model 10 1935-36, Divco truck model R 34-35 and model S 36-37 (1-11/2Ton)...I also have a note they're in "Fageol #9 36-37", but my source note doesn't match (that model # sounds like a Fageol farm tractor, not a truck, but it's too late in the day to go thru catalogs with Fageol listings). HOWEVER: that Victor shows the C400 shares bore, stroke and some gaskets
  5. You might want to follow the F198 question I posted on the Multi-Cyl Power Unit forum on smokstak..so far found a couple more catalog listings but no real info. It appears to be an oddball of some kind--the 198 doesn't appear to be the cid if the catalog b/s are correct.
  6. Did eyeball a couple more catalogs that included some heavy Cont'l users like Hough and Towmotor, as well as various road/industrial eqpmt makers; lots of Cont'l listings but not a single F198. Without sorting thru my Cont'l list (presently in disarray) it appears to be the largest of the F 4cyls; it's possible it was produced for F 4cyl customers who wanted/needed a more powerful 4 as an option, or it's "dedicated/designed" use was something not covered in my old catalogs. If you decide to look you should post on Ag sites like ytmag, eqpmt sites like hcea and one or more of the Cat sites (cat
  7. Well, the F198 does seem interesting... It doesn't show in a 68 Am'cn Hammered or 84 and 86 Fed-Mog bearing catalogs, but does show in a 94 Clevite bearing catalog, which could imply it was a rather low-prod unit (replacement parts catalogs often omit low-prod or specialty engines, even when they share parts with more popular engines in the series)... That Clevite catalog only lists the F198 (same 37/16x43/8 as the F162/163) (3.438x4.375); Cont'l usual usage for this F-series was to have an automotive version F4198, the ind'l version F198 and a free-standing power unit version P198 or P?198. I
  8. As you can see, opinions differ...but with a 49 Dodge you can afford to take chances if you wish. All kinds of nasty things can've happened where you cant see'um until you pull the pan, as mentioned, and the head, BEFORE turning it over. The internets full of checklists to consider; you might also search "stuck engine" on some of the Ag forums--farm eqpmt engines, often on a piece of eqpmt used only a small part of the year and sitting out in the weather, "stick" all the time, sometimes fatally for the engine if mishandled. I'll confess to just firing up long defunct engines, without serious r
  9. Bill: Only found one list of truck specs, in the Jan 1927 issue, and they're not very helpful--three models were listed, all three shown as model "G" (obviously incorrect): 1Ton--4cyl 37/8x41/2--126" WB--tires 30x5 ft and rear; 11/2Ton--same eng--137WB--tires 32x6 ft and rear; 2Ton--same eng--137WB--tires 32x6 front, 34x7 rear. Didn't specify if rears single or dual. All three showed spiral bevel rear axle. One thing was clear, though: the Jan and May 1927 Graham Bros ads showed a 2-piece windscreen, while the Jan, Feb and July 28 ads showed a one-piece. Your 700x20s were almost certainly adde
  10. Commodore is right on; that said, I have no idea what the "M" etc part designates. Cont'ls 226 was produced in the period they were using different designations for differing types of usage--the 6cyl 226 was the F6226 in the "automotive" version (Possibly Kaisers and Frasers, some later Checkers??, smaller trucks, forklifts etc), F226 in the "industrial" version (tractors, ag/farm/const eqpmt, incl forklifts,welders, gensets ad nauseum) and PF226 in the stand-alone power unit version (engine, radiator, hood sheet metal, usually clutch or pulley, etc mounted on skidframe). It was one of Cont'ls
  11. (1) can't make out on my set what the numbers etc?? are above "Cont'l Motors" on tag; PLEASE ADVISE... (2) Have Shurhit catalog #81 (cars generally 1930-42, some mainline trucks, nothing else) and it's not in there...(relatively poor coverage)... (3) does show in dist list in 1950 Motor Truck/Tractor (covers 36-49 mostly over-the-road trucks, some tractors, the major ind'l engines, incl some Cont'l, used in covered vehicles; (4) NOT in dist list in Motor car manual covering 35-42. I'd guess--repeat, guess--it's for one or more of Cont'ls "industrial" engines...truck, ag/farm eqpmt...per it's i
  12. Bill: My apologies for my compatriots apparent lack of interest in offshore problems...Dodge truck people should've answered by now. I don't follow Dodge, but can maybe bracket you in a bit... Mroz's truck book says a majority interest in Graham Bros was purchased by Dodge in 1920 or so, that Dodge built them with Dodge 4cyl engines; that Chrysler bought Dodge in 1927 (and that also in 1927 Dodge had bought total interest in Graham bros)... Also in 1927 "...1/4, 1/2, 2 and 21/2 Ton models were added, some with 60HP 6cyl engines ...designed by Dodge but built by Continental..." (that makes then
  13. Posted some odd little Packard 1914-15 magazine ??? for sale in the Memorabilia etc forum; see that post for details.
  14. About a dozen little (about 11/4 inch high and seven inches long) Packard Motor Co ads/declarations in a business oriented trade magazine of the period named American Industries. The mag was strongly (virulently?) pro-business and anti-organized labor. These have little quotations supporting business 'freedom", with the Packard Motor Co name and a teensy illus of the radiator saying "Ask the man who owns one" (magnifying glass required!). No car illus (no room!!) these look more like declarations of company business principles than a car ad, altho if you consider only plutocrats read this maga
  15. Posted a batch of 1914-16 and 1922 Pierce Arrow Truck magazine ads for sale in the Memorabilia etc forum today; see for details.
  16. A batch of assorted pierce Arrow truck ads from American Industries, a trade magazine of the period. The 1914-16 ads: 26 back cover ads, about 1/4of page illus and balance text---these are on an almost pulpy paper, very fragile, should be put into protectors; 2 back covers, better semi-glossy paper; 2 back covers, glossy paper. A few duplications; all pages outlined in color lines, duplications used different colors. The 1922 ads are eight 1/4 page interior page ads, no illus, text only, good paper, one duplicate. Magazines originally half folded vertically for library storage before being bo
  17. A rather brief Googling finds mention of two "Perkins" gasoline engines, m'f'd by the Massnick-Phipps M'f'g Co, sometimes AKA "Massnick-Phipps" gasoline engines: a 25 HP four and a V8. These had no connection with the later Brit Perkins diesels. There's an old ad online describing the "Perkins V8, mf'd by Massnick-Phipps M'f'g Co". A 1917 Burd piston ring catalog lists FIVE 1915 Perkins engines: Models B and C, 4cyl, 23/4 bore, 2 ring piston, 3/16 rings; Model R, 23/4 bore, 8cyl, 2 ring piston, 3/16 rings; Model D, 31/8 bore, 4cyl, 2 ring piston, 3/16 rings Model P, 31/8 bore, 8cyl, 2 ring pis
  18. AC: I thought I'd posted to this thread after my apology, but I apparently hit the wrong button... It was to the effect I hadn't checked this site for earlier Ferro threads, and when I did I found your earlier (March 2012?) thread with the several nice engine pix, incl the "Ferro" casting pic you again posted above... I thoroughly agree with the replies in that earlier thread: your "Ferro" casting is almost certainly because they cast the block, NOT built the engine as a Ferro engine... For clear pix of a Ferro 4cyl, with Ferro cast prominently in the side of the block, see the
  19. AC: My apologies; I seem to've jumped to wrong conclusions... I assume you mean the Ferro name/logo is cast quite prominently into the side of the block (on a 4cyl marine? engine it's enclosed in a fancy rectangle, the lower horizontal of the "F" carried thru the "ERRO", taking up at least 3/4 of the length of the block)... When you say "another member" did you mean another member of the Jewett Six club/group, or another member of Grahampaige.com?? I neglected to mention grahampaige in my earlier post--Paige came into the hands of the Graham brothers, who named the new company Graham Pai
  20. ac: Had to go to Google to find Echuca!! Ordinarily it'd be difficult to ID your engine, but it appears there're enough Jewetts around for a website: jewettsix.com. They'll no doubt be more than glad to hear somethings survived down in AU, or Oz, if you don't mind, and should be able to give you a positive ID. While it's possible you have a Ferro engine, it's more likely you have Ferro cast into some part that Ferro cast for Paige-Jewett. Standard Catalog Am'cn Cars 1805-1942 says Jewett (1922-27) was a little brother to the Paige (Paige was originally Paige-Detroit--Paige Detroit 190
  21. Do any of the old car-old engine books have a list of the Ferro car (truck??) stationary engines?? Not that I could afford one, but the library might have one. Oldmarineengine has a wealth of info on their marine engines; the Googlebooks Ferro book covers their 1, 2 and 3 Cyl engines of the time, but it's prior to the time---1915-18 somewhereabouts---that they gave up marine engines and moved into auto engines. Researching is complicated by their doing casting for other makes, maybe at the same time they were building their own, their continuing after giving up their own engines and their keep
  22. You're close to being a square peg in a round hole here, not that car collectors don't have occasional lapses and acquire trucks... There're several Chev forums for advice/info/sympathy (the markets down in these troubled times); there's classicwhitetrucks.com for the White (it's a small site but concentrated on White). There's a special subset of collectors that like wreckers and winch trucks; as Bob said, you might post on aths.org, the old car/truck forum on smokstak. com, and/or the antiquetruckclubofamerica.com (org?), a small site I haven't been in for awhile. You're kind asking "how hig
  23. Continued... #8205--Gates sez 49-50 Cad V8 160 HP FG (Fan, Gen). Dayco crosses to their #27, includes more Cads to 60 and a long list of other makes to 1968. #8210--Gates shows Olds 49-51 88 and 98, BOTH AFTER 7-49; Dayco croses to #44, incl long list other makes to 1969. #8213--Gates shows 51 Kaiser, 51 Rambler; Dayco index crosses to their #18, but that's a misprint, looks like it should be their #60, which lists later Kaisers, the Ramblers and another long list as mentioned. #8222, 27, 60 not in the Gates book, and with the mentioned misprint didn't trust the Dayco cross index, so didn't c
  24. Sorry re' not getting back sooner--found my 50 Gates too early, had to find car section of 69 Dayco buried upstairs (follow trucks/eqpmt much more than cars). Then found the two catalogs didn't match that well, not unusual for most parts catalogs but unusual for belt catalogs... #465---looks like 47-52 Stude champ; Gates shows var 31-36 Dodge trks with Wstghse Comp (for air brakes) or comp/gen, various Int'l trks 30-37, many with Wstghse comp or HD213 engine. Dayco cross (#30) shows fair list other makes etc into 1957. #614---wonder of wonders, both show this for (and ONLY for) 49-51 Pont 6,8
  25. (1) Your old Wix PC-100 is now Wix 51100; (2) My 50 "Master" Gates is too old for your VF numbers (VX seems to be "Vulco Flex"). A 69-70 "Trucks, Buses and Other Machines" catalog doesn't list cars. These hoses were apparently put on anything they fit, VF1 shows on some 65-66 GMC Tilt-Cabs UH; on some 57-75 IH AB, AM, AMC series as LH; VF4 on some Case, GMC 66/67 V6 401 motor, Hough GMC 4055C motor and some asst'd IH, some as LH, some as UH; VF14 didn't see any; VF16 most popular---batch of Chev trucks and all kinds of asst'd const etc machinery (A-W, Clark, MF, Yale) both as LH and UH VF 2
