  1. Are manifolds for a C17 available anywhere? Just got some bad news from my mechanic.
  2. The Saxon four is rated at about 12-14 hp. Built by Continental, the little engine was unstressed and exceptionally durable, and always tuned for economy. The roadster was known to get 35 mpg. I have no idea what kind of power you could get from it if you tried, but it wasn’t uncommon to see these modified into racing form.
  3. You’re right. I’ve got the space to store it, and I keep picking away at it. It’s a pretty car, and I really like driving it. I’m focused on my Franklins these days. But there’s no really good reason to sell it. Here’s a picture of it, though
  4. I was going to restore an old convertible coupe (1931) But changed my mind. Is there any interest in a 31 ? It’s a President four season. Runs well. Complete. (note...Ignore...I’m going to keep it. I think I was a bit tired when I wrote this.)
  5. I’d ask Randy Fusco.
  6. Wow. Paul, thanks! I’m not sure I’m Franklin “mechanicist” enough for this, but let’s see what kind of trouble I can get into!
  7. These are all in good shape, Mike, but I just don’t know how to assemble them. Does it require pulling out the steering column?
  8. Did I stump the experts? Would photos help?
  9. Check out the HCCA’s classified advertisements on the club website. You’ll get an idea of the range of prices. It’s also the best site for selling brass cars.
  10. The ring on the underside of the horn button of my 31 Transcontinent fell apart in three pieces last fall. It had been glued together many years ago by Carl Barker, I suppose. I repaired the ring, but now face the puzzle of how to reassemble the horn. I can see how the horn button ring lines up with the inner ring, but I can’t figure out how to reinstall the spring and the retaining ring. Any fine fingered magicians out here have a technique?
  11. You say it’s running nicely. I assume that means you’ve repaired the broken transmission?
  12. I see that this Franklin has been listed on Craigslist for sale for $16,000.
  13. We have complete sets both here in Sarasota and home in Maine. I read them often, but there’s quite a lot to absorb. Thanks.
  14. Good article,ACN #21,by Dr.Boyer.Answered all my questions.
