  1. The guy is a newbie, give him a break! He isn't an old seasoned critic like most of the responses here. It's a great picture, thanks for posting it!
  2. I haven't been in Pats Coffee mug in a while...wast to impressed with the chow. I was working on Jefferson Ave (West side and used to wander off for breakfast) This Auburn sat in Churchville up to a few years ago at a Early V8 Ford repair shop. It was tan and supercharged and Tommy said it had a broken crankshaft. I don't know if its still there or not.
  3. Bernie, Are you talking about the Rochester car that was supercharged and had sat a long time with a broken crankshaft?
  4. Send Richie a PM . He is a good seller / honest guy. Most likely got busy.
  5. Whatever it is I want to sell it. is it worth $50 to anyone plus shipping?
  6. Joe It looks great! I really like the whole family! Mike
  7. The short handles are 40 inches long. The jaws are spring loaded. I'm thinking for lock rings but do not see how it would work. What vintage is it?
  8. The motor would SEIZE SOLID before brass would melt on a manifold.
  9. Jim what should it tell him? Ive done plenty of deals with Kean and he is a good guy to deal with.
  10. Sounds good, Maybe I can get what you need copied here at my shop . My cost will be yours !
  11. Yes I did after nor speaking with each other 30 plus years. I have my original 1902 Model B with the pull recoil system .If it was/is the same Id be glade to help if I can,. Mike
  12. I have early style Auburn 12 Columbia in excellent condition for sale at $3500.. Its located in Livonia NY 5857381541
  13. Keiser31, Its a LN series Ford. There are plenty of them on the road around here in NY . They were a very popular series truck.
  14. Is anyone planning on going to this sale next Sat? If so please contact me. Thank you, Mike Gervais Family Farm Wheels Museum Lifetime Collection Antique Auction in Alida Saskatchewan, Canada
  15. I use these on the Franklins if it has 2- 1/4 pipe inch connections.
  16. The button is NEITHER . Its for free wheeling. The first detent when going into second or high is the free wheeling mode To get in straight drive the operator needs to push the button down and then push the lever farther . It is/was a poor design in my opinion. My 1932 Peerless Custom 8 had the same transmission as well the 1931 Pierce I have in the shop now.
  17. I have many Oakes spare tire locks , some with keys and some need keys. The lock housing on the left is for a rear spare demountable rim. Mike 585 738 1541
  18. The sad thing is most likely the clutch and gears are setting on a shelf or in a box with someone associated with the museum. The gearbox looks clean ...someone was working on the car and the parts never got put back with the car.
  19. What are the odds of finding a Grant parts car?? Nice!
  20. Ive was told by Dick McKnight from Tully NY that he wants to retire and sell his entire collection.
  21. Joe , You will need to make a mandrel to bolt these pipes to if you aren't going to weld it together while locked down to the jugs.and find an experienced tig welder for this job. Looks great! Mike West
