  1. Looking to purchase set of 4 (or 5-6) usable for gentle driving, 7.00 x 17" tires. Super thanks.
  2. Looking for four (or five to six total) 7.00 x 17" tires in usable condition. Not for show, but for go. Black wall is fine.
  3. Al, You may want to check out Mark Clawson at Clawson Classic Instrumentation You can do a search for his website, phone number is 360-299-8636 and his address is 2402 30th ST, Anacortes WA 98221. Good luck! Steve
  4. Thank you shavdog......we still own the LaSalle.
  5. Do check in with the Early Cadillac Group. Simply use the following address: http://www.earlycadillac.org We've just moved the group to a new host site and having a great time! Currently we have over 375 active members from all around the world. Our emphasis is simply all copper cylinder Cadillacs, which means from 1903-1914. Come and join the camaraderie Steve
  6. Robert, good points but I'm wondering where you came up with 48' for a two car hauler. Everything is dependent upon what two cars he's planning on, but I've often hauled two small cars (even two Model Ts) in my 24' enclosed trailer (a tight fit, but it can be done) and my 24' trailer has a set of cabinets in the front that takes up some space. My total net available interior length is 22' 2". I run a Dodge RAM 2500HD with a Cummins diesel. I haul mostly horseless carriages and my rear door opening is 90" (can't fit everything but it does fit most!). Steve
  7. Face glass in very good condition, instrument face is dirty, but appears to only need a good cleaning. The outer rim needs heavy cleaning and depending upon your personal requirements, could be re-plated for best appearance. $75 plus shipping. Interesting face, instead of usual numbers with + and - side, it's simply a "GO - NO GO" type application with the red indicating needle. Call me if you have a question. Thanks. Steve 360-661-6060.
  8. Need Gray & Davis Lighting Switch for 1914 Overland. Maybe just the name plate or knob; a parts switch will always be helpful. Could also use a G&D voltage regulator. Ooops, almost forgot: Need a Gray & Davis floor mounted starter switch, I have most everything else to electrify our touring car. Super thanks. Steve
  9. Hi You may want to check this site out: https://www.fjmtruckcenter.com/default.asp?page=xInventoryDetail&id=3975268&p=2&s=Year&d=D&vt=cargo trailer&fr=xrentalinventory Trailer looks like it could handle your Dodge with no problems. Steve
  10. I run a BB-1 on my Overland. Dove under the hood and took lots of measurements as it was going to be a tight fit if I wanted to add a filter. The went to the K&N filter site and custom designed my filter and it works perfectly! Not period correct, but it seems to be doing the job!
  11. "I carry a lightweight plastic ramp to raise a good tire so that the other tire on the same side can be changed (or the brakes adjusted) without jacking the rig." Marty...I also carry a plastic ramp (bright yellow color) that's good for something like 15k pounds and works wonderfully. I had a passenger side flat tire driving by myself while returning from Hershey (via Long Beach, CA) and it was evening traffic in downtown Oakland and I was jammed up against the side rail. I had the trailer up and ready to change literally within minutes. The Freeway Ranger (paid to help with troubled c
  12. I'd go one better, specifically at Chickasha....... Plan to arrive Thursday early afternoon in order to "work the parking lot" before the vendors are allowed onto the fairground field. You'll have a chance, especially if you're looking for autos or the rusty bits that are typically loaded in on large open trailers! The indoor vendor space vendors tend to be the more specialist type vendors, specializing in certain products and/or services. Outdoor vendors tend to be more along the line of complete cars or large parts thereof, yo
  13. Thank Larry for your suggestions. I'll be returning again to Chickasha to show our Leather License Plates. Our vendor space is in the North Bldg Spaces NJ 8-9. Perfect location: Air conditioning and heated, near the restrooms and practically next to the food vendor. What more to ask for! Also, I believe the Buick guy's will have their gathering at my booth space on Friday at 10am? We'll be showing leather license plates including the new "black on white ground" leather plate alongside our more normal aluminum numbers on the thick black leather.
  14. 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!
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. Pending pick up at Hershey, this generator has found a new home. Thanks everybody.
  18. Pending pick-up at Hershey, it appears that this generator has found a new home.
  19. 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 th

  21. 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
  22. 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 o
  23. 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 Pee
  24. 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?
