  1. WOW! What a load of pure unadulterated BS. I asked a simple question because in my 75 years I’ve owned over sixty cars/trucks from every decade from the 1920’s to the present and with the exception of some late model automatics (which don’t count) I’ve only had one with overdrive. I ended up with all your answers that had absolutely nothing to do with the question. I got my intelligent answer elsewhere. I’ll never visit this forum again. Mark Twain once said: “It's better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid than open it and remove all doubt” Well Gentlemen, you have removed all doubt. Ha
  2. When towing a car that has a manual transmission with a Borg Warner overdrive. Should the overdrive control be push in (freewheeling mode) or pulled out (Overdrive totally disengaged)?
  3. I have a manual transmission with a Borg-Warner overdrive. When towing this vehicle with wheels down, should I have the overdrive control pushed in (freewheeling) or pulled in manual mode?
  4. I've seen several similar clutch disc's on tractors. Do like Paul says and put it on "What is it" forum or advertise it on eBay as "vintage clutch disc" with all its dimensions. Don't throw it away, it may be someones absolute need! Bill
  5. Paul.....................................That DEPENDS!
  6. Wrong........While Brian did retire, Tim took over the restoration business. The parts department is up and running fine and is going to continue......and has recently added new items. Tim is a young guy, so I expect that it will continue for years to come. I have done business with Brian for decades, and have gotten to know Tim quite well........he is a first rate guy and very talented. I can't recommend him enough. Just google straight eight for the new web site selling the parts. Endinmass, If that is correct, That's great news. I hope your right. Thanks Bill
  7. A note on my previous post. Classic & Exotic Service, Inc. is going out of business and they are selling off all their stock. If your interested in any of their items, especially the Franklin items, you need to act now. Bill
  8. Classic & Exotic Service, Inc. Has the correct gauge casting for the Franklin Oil & gas King Seeley gauges. They also have the correct red liquid for the gas gauge and the green liquid for the oil gauge. They aren't inexpensive but they are correct copies. Their info is below.

  9. Try looking at Franklin Drawings 52435 & 54643
  10. Don't be cute Dick. You know the Midget I was talking about. Certainly not a King Midget with a Wisconsin engine!!!!!!!!!!!!
  11. I think I'd like to have the midget in the picture
  12. Good Idea, https://www.snydersantiqueauto.com/ has them.
  13. This is an unrestored 1930, 145 sedan. As you can see it is the same as the 1931, 151 sedan except for the seat upholstery design.
  14. Maybe this can help. This is a 1931 151 (same as 1930 145)
  15. Nice photo Paul. Here is the one on Ebay for $185.00. As I said, this is not for a 1930+ Franklin. I think it might be a design for a much, much earlier Franklin. .
