  1. Well, it's going to be a task either way. We own a '29 Franklin that was stripped mostly for body and interior parts. What was left was a perfectly good frame, engine and running gear. A previous owner then fashioned a body from spare aluminum sheet stock. He decided to go with something that had a classic roadster look.
  2. Back to dealing with my bent steering linkage. Has anyone successfully removed the end caps from a series 11 drag link? The caps are fine but the pipe is bent and needs replacement. I am concerned because the drawing indicates "Braze" at the threaded connection so I don't know what I'm in for. Also interested if anyone has an intact series 11 link that they would be interested in selling or otherwise parting with. As an aside, I am curious about the marking on the tube which looks like the letter "C" in a hexagon. Any info is helpful and appreciated.

    Grease / Oil for Steering Box

    An addendum to my comment on John Deere Corn Head Grease: The steering box on our '24 DB has only a grease fitting to fill the box. I removed the fitting and used a needle attachment at the end of my regular grease gun to shoot the grease deep into the box. At the same time, I jacked the front end just so the wheels would clear the pavement and then ran the steering back and forth, from end to end, in order to work the grease into the gearing as much as possible. Refill to the filler hole and repeat.
  4. Looking for an interchange for ignition points that would fit a 1924 DB Roadster. Is there anything that a store like NAPA might carry that is easy to obtain?
  5. Looking for a resource to replace the radiator in a 1924 Dodge Bros Roadster. Used to dealing with Fords and Chevys where product is readily available but having a difficult time locating any radiator resource for Dodge. I did see that Brassworks offers something but it is custom built with a substantial lead time and cost. Looking for other options. Thanks

    Grease / Oil for Steering Box

    Another option the John Deere Corn Head Grease. This is a flowable grease that is designed for high sheer but slow speed, They use it in corn pickers that have a sort of steering mechanism for the machinery. The Ford guys swear by it. It flows to keep things lubricated but is thick enough not to leak. It comes in a grease cartridge so you can just load it up in your modern grease gun. I've used it with good results.
  7. Recently acquired 1924 Dodge Brothers roadster. I am not near the car at this time so I can only go by what someone else is telling me. I'd like to get some general tech specs for the engine as well as production dates and any other historical info. The engine number is A166 004 Body number A196 462

    Shift knob thread size

    I don't currently have access to my car otherwise I'd check this myself. Does anyone know the thread size for shift knob on a 1929 Franklin? Also, I would love to see what an original shift knob looked like. Can someone send me a pointer or a pic? Thanks! Steve

    Franklin Logo in stitching format

    I am interested in the same thing. Please let me know if you find anything. Thanks!
  11. I'm looking for information about this carb. It is presently installed on a 1929 Franklin 135 but it is not original to the engine. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Original Purolator Oil filter options.

    Thank you! I'm a new owner and I was trying to figure out how to handle this one as well. Do you have any photos of the finished product or a resource you can point me to for the screw-on adapter? Thanks!
