  1. It's obvious to the most casual observer that this is an example of a very rare Doane made by Acme. 😄 Frank
  2. Definitely ACME, about 1915-1916
  3. Andrew, I'm so glad your engine worked out for you. I felt so bad after you missed the first one... Frank
  4. Well, you asked for advice, now that you have it, you don't want to take it. I stopped reading the For Sale section the minute it changed. Maybe it's my eyes, but it's too confusing and too fragmented. I was one that asked you to do something about the 'Not Mine' section because I felt it cluttered up the section too much. If I want to locate a car for sale, I'll find it with Google. I sometimes think that those who post Not Mine ads just want there total of posts to go up. It's almost like "How many ways can I dick around with success before I ruin it." Just my thoughts... Frank
  5. I bought the 1200 W from Restoration Supply in California. I filled the transmission to the proper level and just keep an eye on the differential. Been using it for 5 years... Frank
  6. If yours is similar to the transaxle in my EMF, use heavier gear lube in the thing. When I bought my EMF, the prior owner said to use 600W and that the seal between the transmission and the rear end was not good. He said to drain the differential periodically, since the 600W would pass through and fill it. I later found out that there is no seal on the shaft and that the design relied upon a small amount of oil to pass through to lubricate the shaft. I now use 1200 gear lube and the problem has gone away. The heavier oil has given me trouble free miles for the last 8 years... Frank
  7. Why take the chance? This has to be a very hard to find manifold... Frank
  8. They should be 1/8 pipe, similar to my EMF Frank
  9. I think yours are just about the same as mine. There are 4 photos below, first one is the one I rebuilt using new gear boxes that were available from Don Lang (Lang's Model T Parts). I don't remember if he told me that I bought the last ones he had, or if he has more. You might try him. Either way, I think I bought the last of the original regulators from him. They are like hen's teeth. The remaining photos are the remains of the ones I have left. Two have complete gear boxes with gears and shaft, the third is just the plate and window riser shaft. The main problem with these is the pot metal gear box, although these don't look too bad... I'll send you a pm.... Frank
  10. Do you have any of the remains of the window regulator that goes with it? I looks like a similar set I have for a 1924 Ford window regulator that has a long 'cork screw' type shaft that operates the window. That pot metal gear box has two right angle gears connected to the shaft. I can post a photo if you like. I have the remains of three of these. Some have just the gears, some have the gears and shaft. .... Frank
  11. If memory serves, you probably meant 1/2" pipe thread... Frank
  12. Looks home made to me... The seat is the typical buggy seat sold for use by the Amish. Frank
  13. Here is my roadster done in Chicle and Copra. I don't know if it follows the 'correct' guidelines, but I like it...
  14. Depending on the size, one on the left looks like Stude Big Six 1917-28. Frank
  15. Looks to me that it's based on a 2 cylinder Reo, maybe 1908... Frank
  16. If you did nothing but change the flasher, you probably bought a 'regular' duty flasher. Replace it with a 'heavy duty' flasher and it will flash at a slower rate. Flashers switching rates are determined by the amount of current flowing through them. Heavy duty flashers will take more current before switching than a regular duty flasher. Frank
  17. 1905 or 1906 Cadillac Frank
  18. Definitely Reo, they had fork mounted headlights and the curved top radiator shell up through about 1917. The domed hubcaps are a dead give away... Frank
  19. Looks like tires are over inflated, running on the center. Maybe 4 wheel drive on paved roads??? Frank
  20. Well, I got back from Carlisle late last night. I've been vending at Hershey since about 82 and tried Carlisle for the first time. We set up on Tuesday PM and were treated like royalty by the Carlisle Events people. Very different from Hershey, where in the past 5 years or so, we have met a mixture of friendly and not so friendly officials. The crowds were steady Wed, Thurs, and Fri, but Saturday was very sparse in our area. We packed up early for the 6 hour drive home. Would I do it again, not sure, we have older stuff. It was different than Hershey, but fun just the same. Thanks to the Carlisle folks... Frank
  21. Yes, 1911, the last year for a wood firewall. (at least I think...) Frank
