  1. John, I finally got over to the barn to look at the springs. I have two extra sets of 1 1/2 inch front IHC springs. They have the tabs. One went through a fire and would need to be reached. They other is a good set. Give me a call at 802-878-5303 and we can discuss. My email is Bill Erskine
  2. John, I think the width of the 1910 is smaller than the 1911. Also the 1910 would not have the tabs on the sides of the springs. I may have what you are looking for but would have to check. Bill Erskine
  3. De Soto, The steering that you have is too new. I think it may be from a late 20 International. The one that I need has a round boss that goes through a whole on the left front spring hanger. Anyone else? Thanks, Bill Erskine
  4. I was missing the steering for my 1905 Model F Ford project. Between borrowing and making patterns I was able to get casting for the complete steering. I have machined the parts for both my project and an extra steering mechanism. The extra one is available for sale or trade. It includes: the pitmen arm and gears at the bottom, the shaft, the brass fire wall flange, the brass tube, the spark control mount and lever and the steering wheel spider at the top. I can send pictures upon request. Asking price is $1200. Bill Erskine
  5. Thanks for the pictures. This is not what I am looking for. Anyone else have one? Bill Erskine
  6. Send me a picture and I will let you know if it is what I am looking for. Thanks, Bill Erskine
  7. I need a steering mechanism (column, box, spark and gas controls) for a sloped nose early 20's International Model K truck. email me at Thanks, Bill Erskine
  8. I did some looking at the parts books that I have and at my Highwheelers. I can only make an educated guess as to what would be correct for what years and models. There appears to be two basic configurations. The first is the oiler mounted over the rear jug. This appears to be the earliest configuration and all the illustrations in the parts books have the oiler with the side feeds in this configuration. The second is the oiler mounted above the transmission. In all the illustrations in the parts books, this configuration has the oiler with the top feeds. All the illustrations in the parts books of 1909 and earlier show the side oiler mounted above the rear jug. There are illustrations in the parts books of 1910 engines with both configurations of oilers. All the illustration in the parts books for 1911 show the oiler mounted above the transmission with top feeds. 1912 and newer has the internal oil pump so no external oiler on these. I think that the oiler mounted above the rear jug could only be used on an Auto Buggy. For an Auto Wagon, the bed would not allow for this configuration. The parts list has 4 different oilers. PN 1565 E is a Cummins and is listed for 10-11 Auto Buggy and 09-11 Auto Wagon. PN 1540 E is a Lavigne and is listed for 09 Auto Wagon. PN 1314 E is a Cummins and is listed for 09 Auto Buggy. PN 1314 EA is a Lavigne and is listed for 07-09 Auto Buggy. The bracket that mounts the oiler above the transmission (PN 500 E (Cummins)) is listed for 10-11 Auto Buggy and 09-11 Auto wagon. This application matches oiler PN 1565 E. A similar bracket (PN 500EA (Lavigne)) is listed for 09 Auto Wagon. The bracket that mounts the oiler above the rear jug (PN 136 1/2 E) is listed for 08-09 Auto Buggy. So, based on all of this, it appears that the oiler mounted above the rear jug with side feeds is appropriate for 09 and earlier Auto Buggies. The oiler mounted above the transmission with the top feeds is appropriate for 10 - 11 Auto Buggies and 09 - 11 Auto Wagons. Again, this is just an educated guess. Now we come to what I have. My 1909 Auto Buggy is missing the oiler and bracket so I can not tell anything from that. My 1910 Auto Wagon has the top feed oiler mounted above the transmission. My 1911 Auto Wagon has the top feed oiler mounted above the transmission. I hope the above helps. If you find an extra side feed oiler, I would be interested. Bill Erskine
  9. If you look closely at the engines with the different oilers, you will see some differences. The one with the oiler with the side feeds has the oiler mounted to the top of the engine and it has a timer. The one with the top feed oiler has a magnito and the oiler is mounted to the cross braces. I think, but I am not totally sure, that the engine with the side feed oiler is a 1910 and the one with the top feed oiler is a 1911. The 1909 engine was different than either of these. It had bolts that went through the intake and exhaust manifolds where these engines have one bolt with a clamp that goes between the intake and exhaust manifolds. In 1912 they came out with the water cooled engine and that had an internal oil pump so it did not have a mechanical oiler. I am not sure if the 1912 and later air cooled engine went to the internal oil pump or if it still had the mechanical oiler. I have a 1913 air cooled. I now that there is not an external oiler on it, but I am not sure if it is missing or if it has the internal oil pump. I can take a look tonight and let you know. What year is your Highwheeler. What parts do you need? Bill Erskine
  10. I have 11 IHC Highwheelers and lots of extra parts. I do not have an extra mechanical oiler. What else are you looking for? Glad to help in any way that I can. Bill Erskine 802-878-5303
  11. If I were not in this as a hobby and needed to get a reasonable return on the time to make the patterns, they would probably be a couple of thousand dollars for each set of castings. I made the patterns because I needed a transmission for my second Brush project and determined about the only way I was going to get one was to make it. So, I am more than glad to help out others since the patterns are now done. As I have stated several times, I only plan to make one run of castings. After I get my set of castings, my motivation to do any more will be gone. Bill Erskine
  12. The Brush Transmission casting in now in progress. The patterns are at the foundry. This will be a one time only run of the patterns. The price for a set of Brush transmission raw castings in $450 plus shipping. Contact me with your order or you will miss out. I also have Brush intake manifold patterns at the foundry. The price is $75 for a raw casting. Again, this is a one time run, so order now or miss out. Delivery will be in a couple of months since the foundry said they were very busy. Bill Erskine 802-878-5303
  13. The Brush transmission patterns and core boxes are finally at the foundry. The foundry said that the patterns and core boxes were good and they could do the castings. The price will be $450 plus shipping for a main case and tail section. This is for rough (un-machined) castings. Again, I only plan for this one run. I ordered enough for those who have already said they want a set. The foundry said that they would be able to make more if I got back to them while the patterns are there. So, there is still time to place your order. Don't hesitate or it will be too late. My contact info is in the previous posting. I also have patterns and core boxes at the foundry for intake manifolds. These will be $75 each plus shipping. Again, this will be a one time run. If interested, let me know right away and I will place the order. Bill Erskine
  14. Four 23 inch Kelsey wheels, rims and rings. Includes hubs and brake drums. $750 for the set. First picture of one of them. Three 25 inch rims with lock rings and bead rings. $150 each Second picture of one of them. Five 23 inch lock rings. $50 each Can deliver to Hershey. Can send additional pictures email Phone 802-878-5303 evenings and weekends
  15. Marc, I see you sent me a PM. I could not figure out how to reply so I hope you see this. There is one wheel on the right front of the partial frame. That is the only Hudson wheel that I have. I may have some other wheels that would work. I would have to do some investigation. You can email me directly at Bill Erskine
