  1. Ex Henry Austin Clark car. Strong runner, on many Northeast tours. Great provenance, delivery possible. $41,500. 518-755-0986.
  2. Well, my profile says I joined in June, 2000. Sometimes I feel older... Frank
  3. While nice, this is the one I would like to drive home. They would not trade even for the EMF... I didn't get a photo of this in their shop. This is from Concept cars... Frank
  4. Wheel pad for front end alignment machine?? Frank
  5. Yeah, Probably a Queen... Frank
  6. You don't say what viscosity oil you are using. I've always used 10W-30 in my 54 Ford, no problems at all... Maybe your oil is too thick. Frank
  7. I looked in the Standard Catalog and it does not look like a Peerless. The square hood panels and door on top of the hood suggest Reo, about 1907-8 Frank
  8. Guessing here, 1926 Nash Advanced Six Frank
  9. I wouldn't necessarily call it scrap. Check the brass ring gear in the rear end. If it is the high speed one, it has value... Frank
  10. Ford TT with worm drive rear... Frank
  11. I think 1946, although it appears to have a later bumper... Frank
  12. Similar radiators were made by Livingston. They were sporty v'ed radiators that may have been used to 'sportify' their cars or used on speedsters. Very desirable.... Frank
  13. I'll have to measure the pressure. It seems to me that if that much gas is coming from a stuck needle/seat, I'd be running flooded all the time. You may be right, a measurement would tell. There are no symptoms of a flooded engine here. Frank
  14. I have an interesting problem with my Ford Model B engine. I placed this same question on the Ford Barn forum, but I thought it may get more exposure here. I first put a fuel pump on the car because my pair of Stromberg 81's seemed to be starving for fuel with the gravity feed. Sure enough, the pump cured the problem. Some time later, I needed to change the oil and discovered the sump had about a quart too much oil, and it was very thin. I had gas in the oil. Thinking this must have come from a ruptured pump diaphragm, I had another core rebuilt and put that on. Now it is about 1 1/2 years since and it has happened again, about a quart over, contaminated with gas. It's hard for me to believe that this pump has the same issue, but how else can the gasoline get into the sump? Any ideas?? Frank
  15. I'm guessing here: 1952 Dodge Coronet Frank
  16. 1941 Packard 110 Special (entry level trim, six cylinder).
  17. It's a 74. The side chrome is slightly different, but good catch. The OP car is a 2 door Brougham. Frank
  18. Boy, did I miss that! It looks like an attempt to turn a black Ford into a brass one.... Frank
  19. Top one is a slant windshield 1923-1925, second one has a straight windshield with a two-man top, 1917-1920; third is most likely a 1916, since it appears to have no brass, other than the radiator. Of course, this assumes that the cars were not updated or changed at the time of the photos... Frank
  20. 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.
  21. 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
  22. If you can't use it, 1912Staver, let me know if you wish to sell it... Frank
  23. 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
  24. 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
