  1. Al: I have good luck on selection with Century Spring. You can shop on line. https://www.centuryspring.com/ Thanks Bob McAnlis
  2. Based on the type of core in the radiator, I agree it is a Peerless. as franklinman suggests.
  3. I have been using OO grease in my brass cars transmissions and rear ends. Google OO grease. that is OhOh rather than ZeroZero. It is pourable grease. Very sticky. I have used maybe 20 gallons over the last half dozen years. I have used different brands. All are more greenish hue. Very good stuff.
  4. No. My car was part of Hartline collection from early Fifties until I obtained in late eighties
  5. Yes, the upper picture is 1912 Loco. 7p touring. Attached is a photo of my 1911 Loco 48. The first year for the 48. It has a 4p Torpedo body and was the forerunner of the Sportif. I won the Grand Champion Award at the OlD Car Festival at GFVillage in 2016.
  6. Hi all: i have my 1911 Maxwell EA for sale on the HCCA web site. Please check it out. http://www.hcca.org/classifieds.php?cars#12736 thanks Bob McAnlis Chagrin Falls, OH
  7. Al suggest you drop the carberator level down so the bowl level is below the bottom of the frame if you are planning gravity feed . Also open the inlet to the float bowl to about .115 /.120 diameter. If you will run a fuel pump then this will not matter. But dropping the carb level should also give you more installation space
  8. I’ll amend my input to indicate the wood to which I am referring is packaging wood. Pallets for parts inside the car or not.
  9. Work with a forwarding company or broker that knows how to handle all the necessary forms and paperwork. Vehicle must be dry meaning cooling system, engine oil, transmission and rear greases, and fuel removed any wood used in packaging must be heat treated and stamped as such. or made from processed wood like plywood or chipboard. This is a big/pest control requirement that must be followed. It is is probable that a fumigation is also required for similar reason. None of the the above are difficult to tackle. But the wood issue is one that is very difficult to address once the vehicle and parts are already in transit. Best of luck.
  10. Yes, we have been using products like this for many years. Maybe 10? It is excellent. I just finished a pail and need to get another. Current material is Conoco 1044025, Dynalife L-EP 00. It has all the benefits Ken indicates above. Hard to get into differential , but with big funnel and patience and disposable gloves it all works out. I recommend...
  11. On the 1906 Olds photo, interesting wheel rings. Demountable rings that bolt on to capture the bead.. Not a configuration I have seen before. Bob
  12. Guys. I am very interested in this topic and thanks for putting it out there. I need to be sure I am okay with a gravity feed to a newly installed BB1. Carbking I am pretty sure you are talking about the inlet hole size for the float operated inlet valve. While Steve, you seem to be talking about the main jet orifice. I’ll be looking at both this next week Thanks bob mcanlis
  13. I recognize your car and the prior owners names. There may be an article about your Premier in AACA magazine long ago, maybe in the 60s. Try looking into that. It could also be from VMCCA as well. I don’t believe it was HCCA gazette. Good luck.
  14. Mike. Nice project. A gear reduction starter would work. If drive gear as purchased does not match, perhaps you could match a gear from the starter that drives the Cummins ring in standard application to the gear reduction unit. Happy hunting.
  15. Mike. Two other options to consider. If your flywheel is exposed and flat, you could run a flat belt around the OD to a tractor starter/generator unit and get both starting and generating in one application. This I have seen done often on two cyl cars but also successfully on a 50hp brass four. Second option is to mount a free standing ring on some standoffs. Perhaps this could be done in a way to step down to a smaller OD ring depending on your clutch configuration. We have done this on brass Renault where there are fan blades around the OD to draw air thru the radiator. Just some alternate thoughts to get the job done.
