  1. Not yet, I haven’t figured out what the two holes on top is.
  2. For any one interested. I did what early mechanics would of done. I made new springs on the lathe. I used music wire. Then tied it around the flywheel pins.
  3. That makes sense. From what I can tell. The metal was painted black. May have been covered with carpeting. If anyone has a top toe board I would be interested.
  4. For anyone who reads this post and knows about the standard Stewart carburetor, there motor lags. The carburetor farts and pops. It is recently rebuilt. I recently rebuilt the vacuum tank because it was pouring raw fuel down the vacuum line.
  5. If anyone has an old spare dim coil I may be interested. I keep a spare ignition switch under the seat. It is missing the dim coil.
  6. Maybe the rear metal portion was painted or covered somehow? Was the rear floor board bare wood?
  7. I got the carburetor. It’s a little rough. I am not entirely sure how it functions. Especially the two threaded holes on top.
  8. Here is another carburetor that is on a 25. I do not know what it is.
  9. The listing ended because I bought it. I would still like to know more information about this carburetor.
  10. Absolutely nothing is wrong with the original. Nor the spare I rebuilt. If it goes with my car I have to collect it.
  11. After receiving the latest club newsletter I quickly researched for an aftermarket carburetor. I found this one. I would like to know if it will fit. 1926 12v ga starter. https://www.ebay.com/itm/ANTIQUE-BRASS-STROMBERG-CARBURETOR-MODEL-MD-VINTAGE-CAR-PART-CARB/372402570739
  12. I was able to get a original bottom toe board. It is definitely made of oak almost definitely white oak. I would like to acquire an original top and front floorboard to match. I will make the rear out of white oak. I have no idea what was original in the back seat. The metal part doesn’t seem right exposed. Was the rear bare wood like in predecessor models? Or was there something covering it? Does anyone know what those 1x2 wood under a bracket are?
  13. From what I see everything is different on my car. There is a metal part that slopes up towards the back seat. There is also two pieces of wood under a bracket. please note the back portion affixed to the backseat is metal. It has carpet glue on it.
  14. If anyone has an extra floorboard that they are willing to part with let me know. I’m not very knowledgeable about lumber in Detroit in 1925. Whatever I end up going with I will use hardwood. Because plywood was not original. Another concern I have is with the screws. I heard that they were #10 1-1/4 cadmium plated.
  15. I am trying to make period correct floorboards. I am starting with the rear. Currently there is plywood. I have taken photos of my friends floorboards. I took my dimensions and his they will be at the bottom. What type of wood is original. I have a floorboard heater I would like to install. The screws appear to be #10 countersunk slotted flat head. Maybe 1.250. What is the screw material. Was it nickel plated? How was the wood protected. Painted? Stained? My Plywood size 20.875 46.500 Tom Herman’s 1925 touring Support beam 18.375 2.000 1.000 Tom’s 1919 touring size 38.750 15.250 0.750 Back portion appears affixed 7.500 2.000/6.000 two boards Appears to be about 3 1x6 The first photo is the underneath of the 1925. The other two is from the 1919.
