    Large Garage concrete sealing.

    Bill Nice looking building. I'm sure it will work well for you. Yesterday I was doing some shopping for the wife (at Costco) and that gave me a chance to look at some storage racks they have on sale. HOWEVER, I did notice that the concrete finish of this Costco (and others I've been in) is fantastic. My suggestion is to find out who the builder or project coordinator for Costco and get the details. At least it will give you more information, which is always a good thing!

    Magneto inspection & Rebuild

    We've dealt with a number of magneto repairs, but by far our choice is Bud Davis 21820 Jordon Rd Arlington WA 98223 425-422-9094 The first time I was in Bud's shop for some help with my DU-4, I looked over at the wall of "exchange" magnetos and saw maybe 3 or 4 Du-4s in stock. That's a good feeling. Bud's been doing mags for years, I believe it's more a passion for him rather than a business. Best of luck to you.
  3. Looking to purchase Gray & Davis Type K starter circa 1914 to fit Overland Model 79 and possibly other cars of similar vintage. Also can use Gray & Davis Type C-1 generator (dynamo), ammeter gauge, lighting switch and any other electrical system parts (other than lamps). Possible trade for alternative Gray & Davis electrical items.
  4. Marty, I'll be driving thru Decatur IL on the weekend before Hershey. Unfortunately not Decatur MI. If you could get it down to Fort Wayne or Toledo areas, I can bring the items on from there.

    Gray & Davis Type G1 Generator (Dynamo)

    Pending pick up at Hershey, this generator has found a new home. Thanks everybody.

    1913-1914 Chalmers Models 17, 18 & 19 Generator

    Pending pick-up at Hershey, it appears that this generator has found a new home.
  8. I have acquired an early Gray & Davis Type G1 Generator (Dynamo). After diligently looking up old reference books, I have discovered that the "Type G-1" spec's list 6-1/2 V, 9 Amperes and 1000 RPM. It took a bit of time, but apparently this generator (dynamo) was originally fitted to the 1913-1914 Chalmers, Models 17, 18 and 19. My unit appears complete, but certainly needs cleaning and internal checking with a complete rebuild probably required. It turns over quite easily, but still requires slightly more effort than ideal. It's quite dirty and cob-webby. Also, as can be seen in the photos, one of the four mounting feet needs some welding/fabrication. Offered at USD$250, plus shipping or better yet, stop by my vending space at Hershey (I'll only bring it if somebody wants it right away) at RED FIELD RWG 30-31, nr. Lamp Post #21.

Since I do not own a Chalmers, I'd like this to go to a Chalmers parts accumulator (aka "hoarder") or better yet, an owner of a Model 17, 18 or 19. Hopefully it can be of immediate use or kept as a back-up unit.

    "Gray & Davis" generator

    For those interested, I have found the automobile that used the Gray & Davis Type G generator: 1913-1914 Chalmers, Models 17, 18 and 19. My unit appears complete, but needing rebuilding. It turns over by hand (somewhat stiffly, but needs lots of cleaning). It also needs minor welding repair to one of the four feet. Offers considered. Thanks. Steve Hammatt Mount Vernon WA USA
  11. I have an early Gray & Davis Type G Generator (Dynamo) that, unfortunately, I have been unable to find the application (year and make) that used this generator. Anybody have an idea as to which marque used this generator? The only spec's I've found so far show a "Type G-1" while the nameplate on the generator shows it as "Type G". The "Type G-1" spec's list 6-1/2V, 9Amperes and 1000 RPM. So, all of this begs two questions: 1. are there substantial differences between the Type G the Type G-1? 2. which brand(s) of automobile(s) specified the use of the Gray & Davis Type G generator? Super thanks everyone.......I appreciate any assistance offered. Steve
  12. Jeff Thanks for your reply. I just pulled my AQ and took a look, unfortunately not much in the way of details regarding which units were supplied by Gray & Davis to Peerless. I also pulled two more AQs and still no details. I wish someone would make a usable indes for the last 10 years (Vol 41:1 thru Vol 51:1) of Automobile Quarterlies. It appears that my problem is that I have a Gray & Davis Type G Starter and I need a G&D Type K (awaiting verification on the correct Type) for my 1914 Overland 79. I'm wonder what G&D two piece starter type (model) was used in the Peerless application?
  13. Hi I've run across a Gray-Davis electric starter Type G. I'm thinking that it may have been used on a 1914 +/- Peerless. Would this make any sense?

    (#13) What is it? Identify that car!We recently received a...

    If an Overland, it's certainly not a 1914. Immediately I noticed that the seemingly large, flat wooden firewall is too early for a '14 Overland. Also, the rear fender line at the rear portion is totally unlike my 1914 Overland 79T. I'm guess, may a 1912 Overland?

    Carbs. for Sale for your early project

    Al The background on the oil seepage on the '14 Overland (plus similar Overland years) engines probably belongs in a different section, other than the For Sale group....so maybe soon I'll gather my memories, check some facts and do a write up about my experiences. However, I did mean to mention a couple of other changes I made as backup to the changes in seat i.d. of the fuel inlet valve. I found a similar sized needle, but with a Viton tip, and exchanged it for the original all brass needle. The new needle had a groove around the blunt end, near the float "flapper". I found a tiny SS spring designed to snap onto the blunt end of the needle (it snapped into the groove mentioned earlier) and then the other end wrapped loosely around the float flapper. When the float dropped, the flapper pulled the needle open and fuel flowed. I considered this my backup method and not the primary means of fuel control. I was tired of occasionally having to back up a hill! Someday, when I pull the carb for cleaning I'll try to remember to photograph my changes. Steve
