  1. Try to get the Mechanic's Handbook and you will find your answers. This is invaluable as a repair guide. Try Snyder's Model A, they provide very good service.
  2. The electric connection of the ground for the A horn is through the button on the steering wheel. One wire comes from the battery connection on the cut-out and the other wire goes to the horn button, which ground the coils at the column. The mounting lug is only used to mechanically attach the horn to the headlight bolt. Frank
  3. If you can't use it, 1912Staver, let me know if you wish to sell it... Frank
  4. This one looks very much like the one on my EMF. Base mounted, driven off the timing gears. Measurements would have to be taken to verify, but I think it's a match. Frank
  5. I realized that the T&C's did not use hydraulics, but since the OP seemed so sure of it, I assumed they had been converted. Maybe they will be converted now... Frank
  6. I have two fans that use that mount. One for flat belt, one for v belt. Either one, $75 plus shipping. Frank
  7. You shouldn't have to bleed the cylinders, the trapped air will be released into the partially filled reservoir. Disconnect the cylinders from the top mechanism and raise and lower the rams several times. This should equalize the travel. Reconnect the cylinders to the top mechanism. Recheck the fluid level in the reservoir several times while doing this. The reservoir should only be filled to about 2/3 capacity. Frank
  8. Does April First have anything to do with your decision. If I'm off base, say hello to the head monk... Frank
  9. go ahead, certjeff1, I won't get in your way...
  10. Close enough? My tag says, "1928-29 Chrysler Imperial." is it a match? Frank
  11. Having never shown a car at an AACA meet, do I need to fill out the activity request card in the latest magazine AND fill out the registration on-line? Frank
  12. Looks like a Neville brand wheel... Very desirable... Frank
  13. That is an Autolite plug, Not Champion. The brass knurled nut on the top is an ad-on. The top that comes with the Autolite plug is the small silver cone that is sitting next to the washer.... Frank
  14. Could be... First year for rear doors with hinges in front was 1922. Frank
  15. When I bought tires and tubes for my firetruck, they only had straight stemmed tubes. I sent them a drawing of the bend I needed and they bent 5 tubes to match my drawing. That was when Eric Maxwell was there, maybe things have changed... Frank
  16. Universal Tire in Lancaster will bend metal stems for you. Just send them a drawing indicating where the bend should be and at what angle. They have done it for me many times. Frank
  17. Interesting! Here is a photo of the car that has the engine I used to help identify the engine in the original post.... Bought in Lawton, Iowa. I saw the engine and did not look at the other photos... 😄😄
  18. Ed, you're close. I googled White engines from 1915 down to 1913 and found this photo of a 1913 white speedster with the same engine. 14 and 15 are just a bit different... Frank
  19. It looks a lot like a mid teens Studebaker 4. Almost, but not quite. The valves are on the other side... Frank
  20. I, for one, am very glad he will be reinstated. Every one deserves a second chance in life. I was not aware of the things that transpired until it was finished, but we all have good and bad days. Thank you for giving him a second chance. Frank

    Does the gent on the far right look a little like Louis Chevrolet??? Frank
  22. Most likely, the speakers in the original radio were connected to separate output devices, so be sure not to connect them in series unless you are sure. The easiest way to tell is if there is only one output jack on the radio. Frank
