  1. Good news! I was able to get the starter working again. With your help and the help of my friend Kyle Barrow, we found the issue was caused (as some of you suggested) by a faulty electrical contact in the Generator switch. I think lack of use may have allowed the connection to deteriorate. A little sandpaper and dielectric grease and the car started right up. Thanks so much for your help and guidance.
  2. Thank you! These pages are very helpful.
  3. Thanks so much Carl! I have a friend with a 1922 and 1929 Buick (among several other cars) coming down to take a look next Saturday.
  4. Thanks so much Marty. I did check the amp meter and it was indicating a positive charge. Assuming the gauge is reliable I think it is working. I also charged the battery at home with a separate charger after being towed back in case that was the issue, and it didn't fix the issue. Right now when the starter pedal is pressed I don't hear any noise at all. which makes me think perhaps a brush is jammed up or something. The amp meter does go negative when the ignition is switched on, which I think indicates power is flowing, but no movement is happening. Could that indicate a brush issue?
  5. That's a good point. I just got the car and while it seems very well cared for, I don't know when it was last oiled. I'll try to check that pin. Thanks!
  6. I'll give that a try! Thanks so much fellow '22 owner. haha.
  7. Good Suggestions! I did try the hand crank and the engine turns freely with no odd noises. I put the battery on a charger and it seems fine, although I will try your suggestion of powering the starter directly. Thanks so much for your help!
  8. One hopefully quick question for you. I was on my first drive in the 1922 Cadillac I just bought. Sadly once I arrived at our destination, the car stalled in the parking lot. I turned off and then back on the ignition switch but this time the starter was silent. Usually there is a fun clicking noise and I can then press on the starter pedal. There was no clicking, no sound at all. The amp meter does dip negative when the ignition is turned on, making me think that electricity is possibly going through the starter motor but not turning it. Could the starter be jammed? Any recommenda
  9. This is a 1924, but I believe these are the parts I'm looking for... or need to make.
  10. That's Very helpful. Thank you edinmass. Is the shaft that slides into the body smooth? How does it attach to the car?
  11. Hello, I just bought a 1922 Cadillac 7 Passenger touring car and one item it's missing is the brackets that stick out of the rear of the body to support the roof when it's down. A couple questions: 1) I assume Cadillac used these brackets and they weren't somehow not part of the design of the Type 61 (I think I see the holes for them plugged with buttons). 2) Does anyone know where I might be able to find a set of these brackets?
  12. I'm in the market to buy a 1917-1920 Cadillac 7 passenger phaeton. Older restoration preferred, I'd rather it not be in perfect condition so you're not afraid to drive it. 7 passenger is a must, but I'm flexible on the year. If you or anyone you know is trying to sell theirs, let me know!
