  1. I was hoping someone would know: 1- The resistance of the tank sending unit when empty 2- The resistance of the tank sending unit when full as measured on the driver side terminal block, with the two wires that go the instrument gauge disconnected (just looking for the range of the sending unit). When I dropped the tank to clean it out (a job I hate), I discovered the sending unit was missing. I have a few of the instrument gas gauges, but not sure if there any good. Im going to try and get a gauge & sending unit set up and functioning on the bench before installing in the car (the gauges were made by Nagel) Thanks Bob K
  2. ANYONE KNOW WHAT THE RESISTANCE OF THE SERIES 12 GAS TANK SENDING UNIT SHOULD BE, NEED TO FIND SOMETHING THAT WILL WORK FOR MY NEW PROJECT THANKS, BOB K
  3. If the delicate aluminum drum (with the speed printed on it) gets distorted in any way by improper handling, the thing won't work (I have three like this). Im surprised there's not an expert who repairs these, thought they were used in a lot of higher end cars, not just Franklins. I think 1928 was the last year they were used.
  4. Does anyone repair Waltham Tesla air friction speedometers ?, application is a 1928 Franklin
  5. I would like some info on the Franklin (series 9?), give me a call or e-mail Bob 585-329-4809 RKAJFASZ@ADVCIRCUIT.COM

    24 REO LIVES AGAIN

    My son took me for a ride in his 24 Reo coupe on a beautiful Easter morning, this is the first time this car has been on the road in about 50 years, starts easy and runs great
  7. I have a 4 cylinder Kellogg air pump Model 4F with gears and lever on display in my office, looks close to your photo, contact me if you wish I can send photos ( I think my son also has a 2nd one), I always thought it was an early air starter Bob 585-329-4809
  8. I had the same problem on my 37 Lafayette, drove me nuts, after 15 years the sealer came off in sheets and plugged the fuel line. Took the tank out, drained it, filled it with a few pounds of small rocks and pressure washed the inside for about an hour till it was all loose, blow air in it till its dry (like 24 hrs), make sure the inside is clean ( use a flashlight & inspection mirror). I then coated the inside of the tank with Caswell epoxy tank sealer (the stuff is great), that was about six years ago, have since used the process on my Franklin and my sons Reo. The stuffs expensive but worth it.
  9. Steve How are the jugs modified (holes drilled or more to it ) and whats different with the pistons ? Bob
  10. Scott The gear is for the mutual friend, he is not an internet guy, I thought I would try to help him out, he showed up at the Franklin Trek looking for some parts, all my stuff is Series 12 Thanks Bob K 585-329-4809
  11. Contact number for the gear 585-329-4809 Thanks Bob
  12. Im looking for an ignition gear for a 1922 Franklin, the one thats on the bottom of the distributor Thanks Bob K
  13. Clarification, this pad is located on the firewall facing the cabin interior Bob
  14. What modern material can be used to fabricate a replacement engine firewall insulation pad that has a look close to the original ? The application is a 1930 REO. Thanks Bob K
  15. Yes we do, I feel foolish I missed the "Skinner" tag on the rectifier unit. The body of this car is coming along very nicely, Im sure it will be a wonderful restoration when complete. Bob P.S. Are you the source of the " Cleveland " touring ?
