  1. Hello Jo Bo, Your lights are indeed 1928 Franklin 12A. I see your pictures seem to be of one of the lights... Do you have any side by side pictures? Any dents in either of them? Are they still with you, and if so, what are you expecting to get for them? I'm working (ever so slowly) on my own 1928 Franklin 12A and would be interested in them if I can afford them. Dang.... Restoration of an old cars ain't like it used to be... everything is getting so pricey! You can private message me if you feel more comfortable doing that.
  2. If you notice, the pictures are time stamped 2016.... maybe it is fully restored now, and they should post current pictures. of-course... engine pictures would be helpful too
  3. You might also consider posting this ad in the FRANKLIN section of the forum.
  4. Hey there Roger, I've seen them offered on Ebay with some regularity, listed under "Watson Stabilator" Give that a try. Bill W.
  5. Try this site for a 10 foot length of cloth braided air hose that should be adaptable to your air pump: Cloth-braided Air Hose (micromark.com)
  6. BTW... the first time I was taught to crank start an engine was when I was 13 on our farm... the machine was an early McCormack Deering Tractor with steel wheels. Once I had the hang of it... I was allowed to drive that tractor anytime I wanted to.... I'm surprised there was enough gasoline around to keep it running that first summer! I was driving a vintage machine and loving every minute of those very slow trips to the farthest ends of our farm property and back! Ha Ha Ha
  7. 1914 American LaFrance 6 cylinder "T" head 14.7 litre engine : Retard the spark, Set the throttle, release the compression, full choke, pull up on the crank about 3-4 times (brings a good fuel charge up into the manifold) and finally, turn on the ignition to the Mag, and with one gentle pull up on the crank, it fires, and I flip the compression leaver back in place, open the choke. 1925 Franklin 6 cylinder Air Cooled engine: (When the battery is down) Retard the spark, full choke, set the throttle, spin the crank around through all 6 compression strokes to deliver a fuel charge to the cyl
  8. Someone's poor attempt at "MODERN-IZING" that particular Franklin. I was wondering if it still has it's Franklin Air Cooled engine?
  9. A friend recently found this E. R. Thomas Invoice, in some old file boxes, for 3 inlet valves. Apparently his ancestors owned a Thomas Model 31 and needed 3 new valves. I thought it was a charming window to the past and posted it. You are welcome to comment, and if anyone has a picture of what a Model 31 would look like, please feel to post too. Cheers, E R Thomas Invoice 1906.pdf
  10. Hello there, I did get a set of 5 but, one is a little “thin” along the edge after sandblasting the rust away. I figured I would use that one as the spare in the trunk and hope never to have a flat tire or a need to use the spare. tell me about what you have. maybe, if yours are in better shape, I should think of casting this one aside. cheers
  11. Hi cpwalter, Thanks! Let me know what you find in your stash, once you've had a chance to rummage around. I looked through my stash, and didn't come up with any. Let me know what else you have. BTW, your profile picture is of Walter, and a very early Chrysler car... are you into the early cars? (1920's vintage)
  12. going to try and post a photo here. while I was taking the photograph, I looked at all the door switches and came to the conclusion, there are "left" and "right" side to these switches. (I thought they were "universal", but they are not) As you'll notice, the switch has was appears to be a "drain" that lets water from the wheel well weep out of the bottom of the switch. So... I would need the left side of the car... or the driver's side switch.
  13. Does anyone out there have a few door jamb switches laying around? I need one that is in working order. My drivers side front door switch has stopped working, and I need a replacement. Cheers
