  1. The head on the "A" is a Miller Schofield (later ones were sold under the Cragar name.)
  2. Yes it is a 16 valve Roof head for a Model T based sprint car.
  3. FS: One distributor assembly mfd. by Delco. Includes distributor, drive housing, and a system of levers that I believe are for spark advance. I believe this fits late teens - early twenties Hudson Automobiles. The latest patent date is 1916. A junkyard find, what's there looks intact. I've decided that if I wait for the people that will pay me what I think its worth this will be a pile the time I find them. So I'm selling it here for $20, not including shipping. Thanks for looking.
  4. Thanks to all who replied. Now to figure out how to get it unstuck, and to see what condition the internal parts are in.
  5. I'm trying to find a little about the history of this 2-cylinder opposed engine I picked up recently. Can anyone tell me what cars used Beaver engines, and when did Beaver start producing them? What sort of reputation did they have among the people who owned them and worked on them? I know quite a few of these engines ended up in Schacht highwheelers. This engine, however, has different mounting points that makes me think it was originally transversely mounted. Any ideas? I'm hoping I can do something more with this engine than use it for "yard art." Thanks for looking.
  6. Original ad on Craigslist is gone. I wonder if he actually sold the stuff, or if he just got tired of all the free advice.
  7. Any ideas? Note the stamped pieces on the dashboard end of the flex cable. Length is approx 4 3/4 feet.
  8. Reminds me of a depression-era Hoover Wagon, just with an electric motor instead of a horse.
  9. I'm going to guess that the correct answer is "keep looking, find a better car."
  10. Wall Street Mill in Joshua Tree National Park. There are at least two or three old cars abandoned nearby including another Lincoln in worse shape.
  11. Beaver Mfg., Milwaukee, Wi., supplied engines for "assembled" cars. This engine is very similar to a Schacht Highwheeler engine with some subtle differences, such as the mounting points and plug location. This makes me think this engine was intended to be transversely mounted. The serial number is low (3 digits.) Any one recognize it?
  12. The Model T short block furthest in looks like an early one - note the small crankshaft pulley. It might be worth saving depending on how early.
  13. In my humble opinion, this thread was posted one month and one day too early.
  14. Model T Ford chassis I'm guessing ca. 1914-1918.
