  1. Does anyone have a copy of the 'White Triangle' May/ June 2008. I would like to purchase . Email ronpbowden@yahoo.com.uk Thanks RonPB
  2. Not sure if year of Essex is correct but registered here in UK as 1919. Conversely I have a Briscoe 4 24 which I believe is 1919 but registered here as 1920. If anyone can find any info. from 'White triangle' magazines 2008? specific to number 12 in 2007 Peking Paris- would be appreciated.
  3. Sorry George Wasn't at Hershey indeed I am located in the UK. I was looking for Distributor cap and Rotor arm for 1919 Essex 6A . Still chasing some spares that apparently should have been with the vehicle I recently acquired. Regards - Ron ronpbowden@yahoo.co.uk
  4. Would you have any ignition parts for an Essex 6A 1919 ? Please see attachments Regards - Ron ronpbowden@yahoo.co.uk
  5. Thanks for that Tom Just having issues with the ignition system, hence the cap, points, rotor arm. Also a Petrol cap 2. 2 " internal dia. would be great. Still need to find out more about the Essex. There were a couple of articles on the Essex doing the Peking / Paris rally in 2007. Two months round about July / Aug and possibly June July in the White Triangle news.in 2008. The Essex was number 12 and completed the rally. There is a brief You tube Vid. for a few seconds as the vehicle left China. I also have 1919 Briscoe 4 - 24, 1930 Rolls Royce, 1935 Bentley 3.5.plus a couple of 90's vehicles . Always happy to help locate any Brit spares if you require. Regards - Ron
  6. Hi Tom Thanks for reply. I am in UK. so can I email you ? ronpbowden@yahoo.co.uk Regards - Ron
  7. Wanted for Essex 1919 - Distributor Cap, Rotor arm, ignition points. Also wanted - Petrol cap to fit same 2.2 " inside diameter. Thanks - Ronpb
  8. Hi (is that you Kevin) - My Brisco 4 24 has Meyer updraft carb don't know much about it but looks very small. Not tried to start it yet - struggling with distributor. Have got compression and Starter now turning. Now playing with hood frame trying to increase head space over driver's head. Need any instruments only got fuel gauge. No linkage for Accelerator or Advance retard. Located here in UK. All best - RonPB
  9. Does anyone recognise the Bodywork on my 1919 Briscoe 4-24 which appears very similar to the 1922 Oldsmobile 'Hillbillie' vehicle? I believe bodies were imported from the States to Brockville after the body shop burnt down in 1918. Does anyone have a 10" contracting brake band complete with linkage for the left side of my 4--24 or suggest a possible replacement ? ronpbowden@yahoo.co.uk Regards - Ron
  10. Does anybody know if the 1920 ish Briscoe 4- 24 4 seater body was imported from Oldsmobile after the fire at the Briscoe factory in 1918. I ask because the Beverly Hillbillies vehicle (I believe 1922 Oldsmobile) looks very similar to the Briscoe. - Ron
  11. Hi Yes I seem to have had problems sending pics. I have had to reduce the pixel size and I don't have Email at home so a quick resume: Yes this is the 4 24 that was apparently very incomplete but I have obtained quite a few bits and bobs and this Sept acquired the headlights and a dizzy cap which is on loan for the moment still could do with full set of points and I do need a left side Brake band and immediate linkage. There a long list of stuff to get including instruments and linkages to the steering column. The engine is now shaping up and I have good compression . The carb. ( Mayer) is a bit of a mystery to me and I have constructed a mushroom valve in the float chamber and have now to sort out pipe connections to the tank. The leather work is slowly coming back with treatment and the hood hoops are now back on after a lot of rebending. Bear in mind this motor has been in storage for nearly 50 years and I am having a battle with our DVLA to re register the vehicle. I will be back next week I am usually available on ronpbowden@yahoo.co.uk and text 07899962866 is favourite. will try and send more pics. Regs Ron Bowden
  12. Hi Just check out attached pics Regs Ron B
  13. Have acquired this cap 2 5/8'' inside dia. to photogragh but still need one and preferably rotor am 1 1/4'' in length with 3/8'' hole dia. and points VBW Ron Bowden
  14. Try these - It is a Mayer carb, I have managed to replace the spring in the dizzy and cleaned the points however the rotating brown wheel has distorted oval and does not rotate so will try to restore it to round but obviously could do with replacement points complete. There is model 16 on the rotor arm. Regs - Ron Bowden
  15. Try these for now - Im struggling to get the other side brake band and linkage and the correct dizzy cap will get some pics of mayer ? carb inlet mushroom valve inlet. This site seems limited to pixel size can send pics more easily via my email ronpbowden@yahoo.co.uk
