  2. Al, Franklin wheels are finally going back to Witmer next week to get fixed Mike
  3. Al, Thanks for the note. Everything seems to be OK. I haven't driven the car much. I just had a four corner fusion on my right wrist. It will be 2 months in a cast. Mike
  4. Finally got the Motor back together and it ran about 2 minutes and the Oil Pump Shaft Seized up. The washer under the pump shaft got on top of the pin that holds it in place. This happened when I replaced the low distributor with the high distributor housing. Thanks to a member of the Franklin Club I got a replacement shaft and it fixed the problem. I was fortunate that the only damage was the oil pump gear. The cam gear destroyed the oil pump gear and not the gear on the cam that drives it..
  5. Five 1928 Cadillac Wooden Wheels in Good Condition. Wheels are complete with Brake Drums, Bearings, Rims, Lug Nuts and Bolts and Hubcaps. The Wheels came off my Car when I changed to Wire. The unpainted wheel does not have bearings. I also have an additional Rim. Asking $1500 for All. Mike DeFelice 845-853-2563
  6. Looking for a 1932 Franklin Distributor Cap that has the wires coming out the side. It is a two piece cap and was used on other six cylinder cars like Auburn, Chrysler, Packard Pierce, Reo, Stewart. Thanks Mike 845-853-2563 40mdefelice@gmail.com
  7. Will this cap fit 1932 Franklin? It is supposed to be the same as several of the Vehicles U have listed Mike 845-853-2563
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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.
  15. FINALLY GOT AROUND TO WORKING ON THE SPEEDSTER AGAIN. MOTOR NEEDED SOME SERIOUS ATTENTION. REPLACED A U JOINT . LATEST PIC OF SPEEDSTER WORKING ON THE ENGINE. ROD BEARINGS, VALVE GUIDES, VALVES, PISTON RINGS, LOTS OF CLEANING AND MACHINE WORK. HELICOIL THE EXHAUST STUDS IN THE HEAD.CLEANED UP THE COWL. HOPE TO START PUTTING IT BACK TOGETHER NEXT WEEK.
