  1. Al, I would sell the wheels. They do need to go back to Witmer Carriage unless someone has the ability to get them finished. I also have a new set of tires and the snap rings. Mike
  2. Al, I think the wheel was put together backward. Those problems would be taken care of when the inserts and holes were drilled. They know about it. I just never returned the wheels to make it happen. Mike
  3. Yes, Wheels were powder Coated and fitted with new spokes. They were returned as shown in the Picture Wheels were never drilled. Need to go back to Witmer Carriage to be finished. Mike
  4. Al, I don't remember. I just matched up the number of holes and the pattern. I had to get a set of wheels because the wood wheels I got with the car were junk like most of the rest of it. I have a new set of wood wheels and tires I should at moving. Mike Mike
  5. Al, It is just there for show. I remembered having one on the Mercury Flathead Motor in my Inboard Hydroplane so I made that to look like the Pump. Mike
  6. The Chassis is all Franklin. The Wheels are Packark and they just bolt up. I had to make adapters to make the Caps fit the Franklin Hubs. The Motor was tired but nothing Major. I did not look at the Main Bearings in the Motor. I am not sure if I just did not want to know.I know I did not want to pull the motor and address the problem. Hoping for the best, I will have to check the wheelbase. I think the Chassis is shorter than stock. Mike
  7. AL, SORRY ABOUT THE LACK OF RESPONSE TO YOUR QUESTION. I BUILT THE FRAME. THE OUTER SUPPORT PIECES AR FROM A MODEL A FORD. THE FRAME CAME FROM SPEEDWAY MOTORS AND WAS SUPPOSED TO BE FOR A MODEL A FORD.
