  1. There was a 1910 Pierce Arrow 48 and an early Silver Ghost, along with a 40hp Olds Defender. and a bunch of smaller Buicks and Ts. our local chapter of the HCCA is pretty active and there are a few 1-day driving tours during the spring/summer/fall. I'm learning more about driving the Loco -- double clutch into 2nd, and DONT ever double clutch into 4th or you'll need to come to a complete stop to get it into a gear. the Clutch is very stiff, and sticks a bit when cold, but once it warms up-- you can shift the cart with two fingers. click click click. if you are wondering -- the car has the original wet steel multi-plate clutch. i've removed it and cleaned i and am running marvel mystery oil with a bit of kerosene to thin it out even more. seems to work pretty well.
  2. we recently took our 1913 Model 38 out for a local HCCA one-day tour. it was the first significant drive that I had with the car. it ran great. lots of power. only issue was getting stuck behind some Model Ts!!!
  3. Question on oils: the manual calls for K-00 oil for the transmission and a mix of kerosene + oil for the clutch. what do you all use in your Locomobiles? for the differential, do you use 600W or something else?
  4. I am looking for a 1913 operators manual for my Model 38. a 1914 or 1915 manual would be acceptable as well. also looking for a copy of the Locomobile Book covering the 1913 models or similar sales/factory literature please email or PM me directly. (tomlee72@mac.com)
  5. As promised -- here are a few pictures of my (new to me) 1913 Model 38. I'm in search of a copy of a 1913 Locomobile Book and original Owners Manual if anyone knows of where I might find one (I have a copy of a manual, which is helpful)
  6. Thanks for the welcome. I am in the suburbs of Philadelphia and have a few cars in my collection. I've always enjoyed touring and driving, so i've been looking for a good brass tour car. (I have a 1912 Auburn runabout, and previously have had a 1910 Chalmers and 1904 Knox). This car belonged to the Magees for many years and is a proven tour car. it needs a good detailing and some TLC, but other than that is supposedly in very good condition. it was restored in the 1960s and has been "enjoyed" ever since. VIN is 6241, so I think it's a Model R-38-2 from what I can tell. I'm looking to learn as much as I can, drive it and tour with it. If it turns out to be as good a car as I think it is -- it will be a long-term keeper in my collection. when I get the car home, I will post pictures. I'm sure that I'll have lots of questions, so it's good to find a group of folks to help out.
  7. I just purchased this car. - very excited about it. Now I get to dig in and learn all about Locomobiles. I have and have had other brass era cars, and have been looking for a larger hp, substantial car for a while.
  8. I'm looking for a replacement flywheel for my 1933 Auburn 8-101A (non-salon). the flywheel has 97 teeth. so my flywheel has a couple of missing teeth, and the face of it has stress fractures, so I'd rather not put it back on the car. the ring gear in 1931-1933 were part of the flywheel, so its not just a matter of replacing the ring (nor would that fix the cracks) the flywheel is the same for 1931-1933 Auburns. please contact me directly if anyone has one, or knows of one. I will also consider buying a spare engine (8-cyl Lycoming/Auburn) for parts in order to get a good flywheel. -Tom Lee Pennsylvania 610-212-5047
