  1. Gale Automobile about 1905. The Gale was manufactured in Galesburg, Knox County, Illinois. The question is have any Gale's survived?

  3. Specially for Keiser31
  4. I believe on some cars with four wheel disc brakes the rear discs also have a cable to activate them as a parking brake. Am I remembering right??? You could say there are only band or disc brakes. The band can be internal (shoe/shoes or brake blocks) expanding or external contracting. Any of these friction systems can be operated mechanically, hydraulically or by air.
  5. I have stitched cracks in an engine block myself and wonder if one could stitch a manifold???
  6. Several years ago there was a news article about driving with your hands at 10 and 2 as most of us were taught. If your airbag is activated you will have broken hands and wrists. Today you still see many/most drivers with their hands at 10 and 2 when 4 and 8 work just as well and protect your hands and wrists.. Stupid I know about but my stupid did not/could not result in bodily harm, just mechanical and ego damage and taught me to be somewhat careful and observant. I wish all on this fora to have happy healthy motoring.
  7. It looks more like a fused relay than a cut out?
  8. If you leave it for several days It does not hurt to turn it over every day. We had a mechanic in a dealership where I worked that mic'd everything, every ring, every land, every piston in it's cylinder, every wrist pin, etc. used plastiguage on every bearing. You could tell the difference when his engines started up first and tens of thousands of miles later. Good Luck.

  11. I'm with you one hundred percent. Patina is earned over a long productive life, not bought by the yard. Was it Barnum that said a fool is born every minute. Who would buy something like that?
  12. I believe there was no openings at the front. The bottom is totally open.
  13. I have never seen one in real life but I have these pictures and a shut off valve that I bought on ebay so I could build one for my '30. The valve mounts from the 1nside of the firewall and has a spring loaded lid with a tab that could be operated by a persons shoe from the passenger seat. The first picture shows a factory set up. Second picture shows the hole in the firewall with the cover removed. Third picture is a homemade version. Four, five and six show better detail of the construction of the box for a '31. A local sheet metal shop said to make a box out of cardboard, bring them it and a picture and they could easily duplicate it. I hope this helps.
