  1. Bob, I took a couple of measurements this morning which should give you an indication of the size of this axle. Centre of king pin to centre of king pin = 52.5 inches. Centre of spring to centre of spring = 28.5 inches. Springs are 2 inches wide. Cheers John
  2. That makes perfect sense to me. Much of the roofing on houses here in Queensland is corrugated iron. Cheers John
  3. Thankyou for all the interest and help. I was sure that someone on the forum would recognize that U/bolt setup. The axle is a little bit heavier than the Model t axle and would be a good match up for the Studebaker light 6. I purchased a Kissel some years ago in New Zealand and this axle was part of that deal. I always wondered what make and model the axle was originally attached to. I really enjoyed the upside down photos from Oldford. Thanks again Cheers John
  4. The numbers/letters for the Left side hub are : LS HC4 30444 Do the #4 1/2 hubs take the same #4 buffalo jelly mould wheel ? Cheers John
  5. Merry Christmas all, I purchased this front axle a few years ago to get the Buffalo wire wheel hubs which I needed for another project. The axle looks like it dates from the late teens through to the early 1920s. (no front brakes) The thing that makes this axle a little different from most axles of this era is the single U Bolt on each side that goes though the centre of the axle. Spring leaves are 2 inches wide. Does anyone have any ideas on make and model ? Thanks in advance Cheers John Lewis
  6. I am still on my quest to find a water pump and generator bracket for my Kissel. Want to Buy - 1925-1928 Kissel model 6-55 Water Pump and Generator bracket.The Kissel Model 6-55 was the last of the Kissel built engines and is very different to the Lycoming based engines used in some of the Kissel models. Both the Water Pump and the Generator bolt to the right side of the engine block as viewed from the driver’s seat and are driven from the timing case. The order is from the timing case – Water pump, Generator and then the Distributor driven from the back of the Generator through a wo

  8. Thank you the information on the mascot. It is another interesting one for my collection. Cheers John
  9. <o:p></o:p> <o:p> </o:p> I was given this brass mascot recently and maybe someone from the forum can identify it for me.<o:p></o:p> The bulls head is heavy and I believe made of chrome plated brass. The horns are made of what looks like an early plastic. The horns are held in place by a pin or grub screw and I believe they can be adjusted to different positions. It has two large mounting screws on the bottom of the mascot.<o:p></o:p> My guess is that it is an accessory and not from a specific car. <o:p></o:p> It is about s
  10. Ron, Congratulations on a super find. The car looks to be in very original condition and almost too good to restore. All Kissel speedsters were deluxe models up until 1925 when the Standard speedster was offered as an option in both 6 and 8 Cylinder models. The B5 Buffalo wheels on the front of this speedster were used by Kissel on some of their 1927 Deluxe models cars with Timkin axles. The Buffalo wheels used from 1923 through 1926 were what I call the Jelly mould style and these were introduced with the new 1923 Model 6-55. The 1923 Model 6-45 models continued to use the HOUK style wheels
  11. Perry,<o:p></o:p> Mr. Ron Hausmann is the man to whom you refer. I know Ron well through the Kissel Kar club. <o:p></o:p> My name is John Lewis and I live in Queensland, Australia. I have been addicted to Kissel cars for many years and over time have been fortunate enough to become a Kissel owner.<o:p></o:p> Kissels were sold in Australia between 1924 and 1928. My research confirms that eight vehicles were imported into Rockhampton, Queensland ,(including two truck/Bus chassis) and four cars through agents in Sydney , New South Wales. These vehicles

  13. Holden did not produce its first car until the late forties. Up until that time Holden was a body builder. Australia had high tariffs in complete cars being imported into the country and even higher tariffs on cars which were not British Empire products. These tariffs supported a thriving body building industry. As a Dominion, Australia supported British Empire products and this was why most of the Fords cars coming into Australia at this time were Canadian built.<o:p></o:p> Cheers<o:p></o:p> John<o:p></o:p>
  14. Thankyou for the very quick responses. I will pass it on to a friend who has a Model T. Cheers John
  15. Another mystery item to identify.<o:p></o> Can anyone help me identify this Ford car this radiator cap?<o:p></o> It came in its original box and looks to be NOS. I have opened out the box to scan the details which read. (See below).<o:p></o> Even though the box says Rubber, the cap is more like hard plastic or Bakelite. The threads measure approx. 2 inches OD and the whole cap is about 2 and a half inches point to point. The picture on the box shows the cap with a E.E. & Co. marking however this is not on the actual cap.<o:p></o> I have i
