  2. I have started new group on FACEBOOK for the exchange of information on 1 & 2 Cylinder Horseless Carriages made from 1905 to 1910 REO Automobile Company. The intention is to add another method of exchange of information for owners and enthusiasts of these vehicles, not to compete with any existing internet group. Early 1 & 2 Cylinder trucks are welcome. Please feel free to join / Like. Membership must be approved. "1 & 2 Cylinder REO Horseless Carriages" Jim Dix Big Flats NY Somewhere west of Pluto

  4. Reofolks, I am about to order ductile iron brake drums for my 1909 2 cylinder. They will be 3/8 thick (9 1/4 ID.) Probably fit 1908, 1909 and 1910 at least. Machined complete, $325 each plus shipping. If you're interested let me know. Jim Dix Big Flats Somewhere west of Pluto jdix6@stny.rr.com

  12. Last fall we talked about getting together at Hershey. I've gotten us a time at the HCCA tent. We will be meeting Thursday October 5, at 3 PM. I don't have an agenda at this point, I'm figuring on just meeting one another and having a general Maxwell bull session. Hopefully we will have some folks willing to share their knowledge of Maxwells with those of us less knowledgable. If someone wants to put together a short presentation on a specific subject we can probably fit it in. Please let me know if you can make it so we have some idea how many to plan for. HCCA has asked for a small donation to cover expenses, so I will be passing a small hat! The HCCA tent is at RWO30. Hope we see you all there, Jim Dix
  13. I'll stick my neck out :^) "Westchester" was the parts supplier for Maxwell (United Motors). They supplied lamps, windshields, and accessories. As to which NUMBER (on the top) Westchester you have and its correctness I will pass. There are more knowledgable folks here than I. Westchester made carbide generators, I have also seen a very original car with "Nickerbocker Brass Works" generator that looks just like a Westchester. I don't know the connection with Nickerbocker. There were a couple sizes of Westchesters, I believe. It should mount on the right running board, near the driver. It WAS an accessory, so the buyer may have opted for a Prestolite tank mounted some where else. Magnetos came along in 1910, if yours is a 1909 it should not have one. Jim Dix
  14. Actually the area just east of Hershey, North Jersey, South Eastern Pennsylvania, and Delaware has a large number of Brass Era enthusiasts. Most of the folks probably belong to AACA and HCCA, but an anouncement on the HCCA web site might be productive. Mike Jones could probably muster enough cars to fill his needs rather quickly. Jim Dix
