  1. I just posted an early side Handbrake on eBay but have no idea what it came from. It has the numbers 377E on base. Someone might know fron style of lettering. Which you can see on auction photos. I'll update information - so perhaps someone looking will find it with correct make. One AACA Member thought it might be from a later Franklin. ?? Item number: 250082518823 or try link. Ends Feb, 15th 2007. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=250082518823 I'll try to attach image, click "Attachment" above under title, or use link to auction. - Thanks

  3. If anyone one is going to the Kruse auction, I would like to find out who bought car #757, perhaps what it sold for & if anyone was will any photographs... of most interest are striaght on fender shots, front, rear - side views. Would really like shot of rear apron between rear fenders. Yah, it's the Chitty car.... - Thanks - drop me an Email.
  4. Thanks all & Ivan, I'll give the bending a try and see how it goes. If it fails I may be searching for a brass spider to fit an outside diameter wood wheel of 17 1/4". Think the inside diameter is 14 1/4". Of couse if someone has one out there that looks simular to the images I posted under the "Attachment " link at the beginning of the tread, it will save me the hardship. Brian, fairfaxca (add @) yahoo.com. Thanks.
  5. Yes...and would not think it is all that uncommon. Any blacksmiths, silversmiths out there?
  6. Thanks Ivan, The spider now is about an inch too large for the 17 1/4" wood rim. Bending it would match the shape I'm looking for and make it fit the correct size wood rim. (see image) I might concider a smaller rim if there's a risk of damaging the spider...or look for bigger spider. Amish contacts welcome! ...if someone cares to visit with a wireless laptop... If I heat up to dull red, let cool, bend. Do I need to worry about strength afterwards? Heat and dunk afterwards? - Brian Replies from anyone welcome also.
  7. I have a old cast brass steering spider that I need to bend the spokes to both match shape and luckly reduce the diameter size. Before I start in bending I wondered what is the best way to bend the brass. Should I heat each spoke with a tourch and bend them, or bend them cold..or? I just don't want to risk cracking the metal. Bending techniques are welcome also. ..vise, beat, etc. - Thanks for your advice! (photo attached...may be under "Attachment" above)
  8. Tom, drop me an Email, I know but have to do some digging. - Brian fairfaxca@yahoo.com
  9. Looking for a 17" wooden steering wheel with brass spokes. For an off make vehicle, so steering wheel originally came off of another make. If you can idenify, that would be great also. May be intrested in qoutes to reproduce. Drop me an Email. See photos. fairfaxca@yahoo.com

  12. Hello, I'm converting a 1959 Ford f100 truck front axle to Right Hand Drive. I want to find out if Ford f100 parts used in RHD counties, UK,AU, NZ will bolt right in for me. Does anyone have any diagrams of RHD f100's? (57-64 should be same parts) I have some images I put together by flopping the LHD images of what I need + the tie rod bolt hole needs to be on the right arm. Leads for the parts helpful also.

  14. I am converting a 1959 (I think 57-64 may be the same) Ford F100 front axle from LHD to Right hand drive. I'm looking for the two steering arms that bolt onto the rear of the backing plates. I'm hoping they made RHD f100's during 57-64. The current (LHD) part numbers are 3130C, 3131D. Any info on places to contact are welcome also. Will also be looking for small steering box. The Vega box turns the wrong way...but correct size! Thanks, Brian fairfaxca@yahoo.com

  16. Wanted...& Help. I'm looking for rear simular to axle pictured in the B&W images. I building/reproducing a car that was built as a custom car in the late 1960's. It had a Ford V6 engine & C4 tranny, but I'm not sure where the rear end came from. Looks like a 9" Ford, but the center "pumpkin" seems smaller. I may use a [color:"red"]1976-77 Ford Bronco as it's the correct lentgh. I need about 57" drum to drum, If I can't find the one pictured. [color:"red"] Have a Bronco rear end sitting around? Email me your guesses also. fairfaxca@yahoo.com Thanks!
  17. Thanks, tried above Web site but did not notice [color:"red"]"diamond tread" pattern in 36x4 tires. They had some Michelin's that look right, but did not see correct size. I emailed them also. If anyone else knows of another tire provider with these tire and size let me know. Thanks! [color:"red"]
  18. I tried looking up several antique tire shops, but no luck. Does anyone still make Diamond design tread Tires? Looking for 36x4 size. Tried Lucas by phone, Univeral Web site, Vintage tires Web site. No luck. Drop me an email if you have any other places for me to check. Thanks, Brian fairfaxca@yahoo.com
  19. Wanted: a good pair of Lucas King of the Road 784 headlamps. Add that to the list...fairfaxca@yahoo.com<BR><A HREF="http://www.marindirect.com/wanted/" TARGET=_blank>web page</A>
  20. 1926 Model T Ford Touring 4dr convertible. Great project car, still needs a few parts to bolt on, and bolted together...New upholstery and new radiator core. Car is in primer and black paint. It ran up until put into storage. Has a 1925 rear end. Was going to swap rear end years ago but interests changed. Rear end replaced without u-joint for fast assembly to roll and steering needs work, assembly. About 95% complete with a few spare parts, body pretty good shape. Have top bows with new wood installed. Tire carrier. Fenders are fiberglass front & right rear, left rear is metal. Have two sets of metal front fenders that go along with car if wanted that will need restoration or you can now buy new metal ones (that where not available 30 years ago.) Stored past 25 years in dry garage. Engine turns over freely. $5900. See Web site for photos. <A HREF="http://www.marindirect.com/modelt" TARGET=_blank>web page with photos</A><p>[ 02-06-2002: Message edited by: Brian S ]

  22. Well, I ended up going also....first one in gate Thursday morning! Found one place with some very rough brass Ford lamps (not what I wanted) other than that no luck. Spent the rest of day in Harrah's museum to make trip worthwhile. - B.
  23. Thanks Bill, It was " Harrahs" back then. I may hold out until Bakersfield meet, unless I hear some promising news otherwise. - Brian<p>[ 07-20-2001: Message edited by: Brian S ]
  24. Was thinking about attending Reno NV swap meet in August to locate (hopefully) some brass era parts, side lamps, side hand brake /gear shifter, etc. - I have not been to the Reno (Sparks) meet for about 20 years. Just don't want to drive five hours to mostly (or should I say , "all") 50's era, or hot rod items. Has anyone been there in the past few years? If you have parts let me know also...
