  1. The tank is out. My grandson used a plumbers wrench and the collar unscrewed perfectly. Dave
  2. My grandson and I are trying to get the gas tank out of our s5 sedan. I've been told that the filler neck unscrews from the tank. Is this true? I hope so because I can't see any other way that tank would come out. Dave Phillips
  3. We are looking for a distributor cap for our 21 series 9B. The tag on the side of the distributor looks like it says AK CAF. Here are some photos. Dave Phillips
  4. Has anyone considered duplicating the early V8 winter fronts. Like the 35 pictured. Dave
  5. That hump-backed Ford in the traffic circle is a 1935. You can see the outside horn. 36 did not have them.
  6. I would like to purchase the 25 Franklin distributor. Grandson has a 25 coupe and I have a 27 sedan. How do I contact you?? Dave Phillips
  7. Eddie has 3" hill hounds" and they love to "help" in the garage and love rides. Here's the 3 in Eddie's 25 Franklin , Jesse in my 15 T and all 3 under the 15.
  8. What is the colour of the steering column on my 35 sedan. Is this paint available? Dave
  9. I bought my first car in 1962 and it was an antique to start with! My dad and I drove that old Ford regularly for several years. The most memorable trip was a Christmas trip up the the Jersey shore in a heavy snow storm. The Lakehurst highway had not been plowed and the Ford went right through with out any problems. I still have my Ford and it shares garage space with 2 Franklins, a 1915 Hudson and a 1915 Model T
  10. Yes, it's a 7 passenger touring. Apparently there is no engine number. It starts when we put gas in the priming cups but won.t keep running. Probably a carb issue. Dave Phillips
  11. The paper work on my car shows a number 84924. Is that an engine number or a serial number. If it is an engine number, where is it Dave\
  12. Tom, yes we are interested in the lenses. Eddie's 25 still has one lens in 3 pieces , held together with tape. Do you know how to send a personal message with a price? Dave
  13. The weather has been too wet in Maryland this year. We did have a few days where the sun came out and we got the Franklins and the Ford out. People love seeing the older cars, it,s a morale booster. Plus you always have someone who wants to go for a ride.
  14. Paul, on our series 11s the timing is adjusted with a lever that moves right to left. All the way to the right is retard and all the way to the left is advance. Dave
  15. Paul, Last night we had a team of young mechanics here working on my 35 Ford V8 engine. After that, we fooled a little with the 15 Hudson carb. Chris, one of the team, was interested in the problem we were having with Eddie's 25. So we all went up to Eddie's garage and started looking at that stubborn oil pum gear. Fortunately, Mark got into his collection of tools and produced 3 "Ladyslipper" pry bars. With them, the reluctant gear fnally came out. I was happy to see, no damage. Eddie spent several hours today cleanning with my rifle cleaning rods and now the gear goes in and lines up with t
