  11. Ron, Ive run a 1930 Franklin I own in extreme heat situations with a 4 parts gas to 1 part diesel with good results. No smoke , no plug problem and no vapor lock. It works! What also works is to add a t in the fuel line at the carb inlet and run a smaller return fuel line to the tank. Really quite easy to do ,with good results. Mike

  20. Joe, Im never amazed at what you have stored under your hat! .The letterhead that the reciept is on indicates Cooke was also a keeper of owners/cars in the prewar years.

The car sold in 1970 for $1500.00,a fair amount of money for a 4 door sedan.Ill send you a copy of the reciept for you to see. Its nice letterhead with the RR logo ..How about Ralph Cheatham? Do you know of him also??
