  1. I am wondering where this precious book eventually went... I would love to see the number 2443131 , a grey colour for a 1926 Franklin.
  2. And that someone is André Franklin25 who still has the original matching grey paint on top of the transmission. There will be an article on the mat fabrication in the next Air Cooled News
  3. Duco 3443131 Well if the transmission top was painted grey you have a sample below ( My original Touring). The Front Compartment Floor Mat was also suppose to be DUCO procured from Ohio Rubber & Textile Co. Detroit Mich. The photo is from a Sedan (Annas) which appear of a similar grey. My carpet looks closer to black ( Is it age or QC of the days). I am making black ones.
  4. Timmy, what model do you have? I am closer to reproducing the front rubber mat for 11A/B (most modèle) no price yet. Serious interest by Franklin owners would help establish a price structure. And I know how cheap we like things to be and this will not be cheap....
  5. Well, the "fact" is that my original rubber front mat is grey not black...So Paul, Franklin did at least buy a grey one from Ohio Rubber and Textile Co, from Detroit. @
  6. The rubber mat that you see in the picture....
  7. I have an original carpet and it is of a grey colour. I have seen other original Franklin carpets which are the same colour. I am working on making a copy with the Franklin drawings and Devcon material which can be tinted grey...the plug/mold will probably be made with a laser scanner on 1/8 acrylic. A clay imprint photo is also attached. andré
  8. I am looking for a good Gas Tank for my 11A . André
  9. Can you give the exact distance of the flat and the ridges. are the ridges round. the focus is not on the edge of the sample. Thanks.
  10. Just completed one using the Franklin drawings and my original busted one... I used mandrel bend a of the right radius. The plans call for dull nickel plating ( not sure if I will do that) . I once had a cracked cylinder No 1 right behind the cross over exhaust. I remember Arnie pulling a piece or copper tube to listen to where the whistle noise was coming from. Was it just bad luck? Any thoughts about insulating it with muffler tape at least behind the "radiator" , or would it be exaggerated. I do drive the car as many of you know! andré
  11. Need a full set for the 12A in France Tom, André
  12. http://www.restorationstuff.com/pdf/RestorationSupplyCompany.pdf On page 26 you will find the Powell Muffler cups for sale. I bought the last of Len's Muffler 6 years ago...
  13. Thank you Bob! The following dealer has North East Electric parts. Myers Early Dodge
  14. Looking for a good ROTOR for the above distributor Any leeds? can you help? andre
