    Franklin engine parts for sale

    Selling mostly complete Franklin engine out of my inventory. Apart. Engine came with other parts I brought years ago. Engine parts are: 1. Complete block with crank, cam, & fly wheel installed. Piston journals still wrap as when block return from machine shop. Block # 35-157446 2. Oil pan, rebuilt oil pump, and oil pump tubes/lines included. 3. Both intake & exhaust manifolds included 4. 6 jugs with new heads/rings installed and 6 piston rods included (you will need rod bearings) 5. Rebuilt top valve caps included 6. Fan hood, fan wheel, front u-tube exhaust, & bottom air hood assembly included/no top air hood 7. Rebuilt oil top & distributor included 8. You will need a top air hood, gaskets and other parts I can't think of at the moment to have a complete "35" Franklin engine. You will also need a carb, fuel pump, a starter, generator, etc. to complete engine. This is not a complete engine. Again, missing top air hood and other parts I am not aware of at the moment. I was going to assemble a complete engine, but just too many projects. And as my Franklins are complete with extra parts, I decide to thin out my inventory. Questions are welcome. Asking $7,000 for everything. Sold as is where is with no written or verbal warranties given. Delivery possible at cost if paid in full first.

Sold as is where is with no written or verbal warranties. $500 / offer for lot plus shipping through UPS. Frank (909) 296-0980. PS: Always looking for Franklin or Rickenbacker cars or parts.

    Looking For Inside Door & Window Handles

    I have a 1933 Franklin Olympic .... basically the same body as a 1933 Reo. I am missing most of the inside door and window handles. Interior is being done now. So am looking to buy sets of inside door and window handles. Does anyone have door or window handles from a 1933 Reo they would like to sell? Or any information where I can get them would be appreciated. Thanks, Frank (909) 296-0980
  8. Wanted: set of 1933 Olympic "headlites" for an 18B. Also, looking for a set for a 1934 Olympic 18C. These cans have the parking lite bulb inside the can as well as the regular headlight bulb. Also, need the "oil tapet line and connections" for a side draft engine. Or information where I can get the connectors. I would like to have the whole system on an engine I plan to rebuilt ... even though most people don't bother with them. Thanks, Frank (long, long time member) (909) 296-0980
