  1. What was wrong with that CG Chrysler Imperial for it to go for $55K?
  2. Anyone from the subject area driving to Hershey and has space to carry a side-shift, early transmission?
  3. In the 'head on' picture, there's an engine on the right side of the frame. What is it, if I may ask?
  4. Walt Federline sold out his stock and is wondering if there is an interest in making more. One of the guys made all new linkages for his 1910 REO and he told me it was a piece of cake making all the cotter pin holes.
  5. I have a radiator a friend in Portland, OR, wants. Anybody driving west with some room... I'm in Maryland. Mike Zerega
  6. Friend of mine ran up this neat little item that is perfect for center drilling round shafts in sizes from 3/16" to 1/2". There is a 'V' notch for larger round stock. This jig allows you to drill a pilot hole quickly. If you've ever changed out the brake rods on a mechanical brake system you know how many cotter pins have to be drilled. BRASS CAR guys should definitely have one. I've also found it very useful for throttle linkage and just anything that requires a cotter pin. It also came in handy when I had to make odd-ball clevis pins. The dimensions are 1" x. 3". It is hardened. I paid $60 for mine. Walt Federline in Frederick, Maryland, is making them. His number is 301-695-9110. www.federlineproducts.com/ I used it yesterday to pin a sleeve on a shaft. Perfect.

I just think it's the cat's ass.
  10. Have a Barrett Equipment Co. (St. Louis, MO) Drum Doktor. Before disc brakes there were these things called brake drums. Yes it's true and this machine is for resurfacing these selfsame items. Attachments, mounted to a rolling table, operational and in fairly good shape. This is for pick up, in that it is large. Located in the Frederick, MD area. How about $475.
  11. Jay, you have a hard row to hoe. My father owned the only Model A Empire (1910), and he went to Hershey from 1955 until his death and I've been going since and the only part we ever found for any Empire was a hub cap.
  12. Guy up in Lewistown, PA has a 1901 Locomobile he's peddling. 717-248-6170
  13. Two 25" rims with wheels. Rims are pitted but sound as are the wheels. All the lugs and bolts. Takes a 2 9/16" hub cap.
  14. I have a pair of "split" rims and wheels. Rims are Firestone #10E4, 34X4 1/2, used on Case, Haynes, Holmes, Hudson, Maxwell, Peerless, and others. Rims are pitted where they sat, but they are sound as are the wheels. Wheels were manufactured by Swartz. The hubs take a 2 9/16" hub cap. Asking $350 for the pair.
  15. Fuel mileage. Modern steam powered vehicles can't seem to break the 16 mpg barrier.
  16. Is there a website that lists the names of car dealerships? I've been trying to find the name of the Oldsmobile dealer that was located in Washington, DC when I was a lad and I can't find a historical site that answers this question.
  17. Does anyone reproduce pyramid-pattern aluminum plate like was used on early cars and fire apparatus?
  18. As it turns out the body is for a 1911 Warren-Detroit. Which is lucky because I have one whose body was burn up in a fire. ;-)
  19. Got this on line: 1gal. Propane = 91600 BTUs 1gal. Kerosene = 135000 BTUs To heat 1,000,000 BTUs it would cost: 10.91 gals of Propane x (price per gal) = Cost (to heat 1mil btu) 7.4 gals of kerosene x (price per gal) = Cost (to heat 1mil btu) Remember this is at 100% efficiency. If you are working with something less efficient you must multiply the fuel btu by the efficiency. For example: Propane Furnace that is 80% efficient. 1,000,000 / (91600 x .8) = 13.6 gals 13.6 gals x (price per gal) = Cost (to heat 1mil btu) Kerosene furnace that is 60% efficient. 1,000,000 / (135,000 x .6) = 12.3 gals 12.3 gals x (price per gal) = Cost (to heat 1mil btu)
  20. Ha! The fire is for the Stanley. The Warren has already had its fire. I keep forgetting that these things are read by all.
