  1. Years ago I saw a National V-12 hearse in Frankfort Indiana. In storage at a funeral home. It was white and BIG, proportions reminded me of a termite queen!
  2. This is closest that I have come to with that bar for the switching element. Don't the 1912 Messengers have Delco equipment?
  3. I think the body on your car is very similar to this one, basically wider in the seat section. Transitional or a bit creative by a previous restorer?
  4. Isn't this notch ( circled in red) for the mounting of the shift lever cover? The cutout at the bottom-Is it factory? How about pictures of this area, inside and out?
  5. Since most coilboxes of the era were supplied on various cars, can you yell us what make and model of box this is?
  6. Appears to me that the brake and shifter on this body are indeed inside. The mechanisms start from outside the frame upward into the body and inside the false door.
  7. Hoping someone can provide clues to make and era of this unknown carburetor. It appears to be an updraft with side inlet. Made of aluminum with a spray jet bar inside. The "story" with it is that it came out of a Henry Ford Museum auction in the 1980s.
  8. Are these tire scrapers or something else??
  9. Generic aftermarket rear view mirror from the teens and 1920s.
  10. There should be a 5 digit number stamped on the taper that the wheel centers on ( just to the right of the screwdriver tip in your picture). This is the code for what axle (year and make of car) and location on the car that this hub was machined for. If you get lucky enough to find that numbered hub it will be an exact duplicate of your pictured hub, thus no machining /adaptation required for fit.
  11. Detachable rims have one or more rings as part of the rim assembly to take the tire off the rim. Demountable rims come off the wheel with tire inflated. Usually this is done with bolts and nuts but there are other types too. This allows for an inflated spare. Since these are distinctly different, a car can have detachable demountable rims ( ring to take tire off the rim AND the rims come off the wheel inflated). Rims with neither feature ( think Model T Fords 1909 thru 1918) are called plain. Picture with tire pump, rims appear to be detachable. Upper pictures, demountable.
  12. My experience with Fastenal here in California is that only a few of their stores are set up to do freight. I recently shipped a transmission out of Oakland but the 4 stores closer to me did not have a fork lift.
  13. I have one free standing and one that attaches atop a Warner speedometer.
  14. hwellens 1914 and 1915 REO only, no other cars By 1917 they looked like this:
