  1. Usually they come apart from the base of the column, down by the steering box. The tube that runs down the column with the control rod (I think it's only throttle on a 130) will slide out, but it may hit the headliner, unless you have an open car. DO NOT BEND IT. NOT EVEN A LITTLE. If you bend the tube, every time you turn the wheel, the throttle will open. If the throttle control tube can not come out, you will have to lower the column to make room.
  2. As ACN Editor, you should glance through all the past issues. It will give you a great education on the cars and the club.
  3. I have one on Dad's Sears. It was very hard to find, and expensive. Pairs are almost impossible to find.
  4. I have owned four Olympics, and never seen this "false fire-wall." The Startix is attached to the rear of the air box, just as it is on my 1932 Airman.
  5. I have one that I don't need. $40. Email me at
  6. I am interested. Did this originally have any trim on it? What secures it to the tire?
  7. The headlights get moved further up and forward. The front apron under the hood front gets cut. An Olympic specific bell housing will be needed, and well as an Olympic instrument panel. I had thought about doing this with a REO truck if I could find one, but it would have to be a very rough truck to justify bastardizing it. The REO truck enthusiasts would kill me.
  8. Why would you want to do this? I think there may be more Olympic sedans surviving than REOs.
  9. I need a fuel sending unit also. I'm going to use this company, recommended by a Franklin friend. I have some 18A gauges, but none are what I'd call show quality.
  10. My dad was there for that. I have a few bricks.
  11. Both of my series 10 Franklins, a 1923 and a 1925, have the air clearers painted black. The '23 was dealer upgraded from a Franklin Carb to a Stromberg, so that's questionable.
  12. A series 10 Franklin is a wonderful car. It's brilliantly over-engineered, and always draws a crowd at non-Franklin events. They ride very comfortably at 40mph, and handle great. Having an unknown engine is a bargaining point. If the overall car is as good as it appears, $5,000 is very reasonable for both the buyer and seller. If it runs, and runs well, it's easily a $10k car. Will it go from its current status to a good-running driver for under $5k? Maybe, maybe not. Any non-runner is a gamble.
  13. You can try this guy: He is well-known in the hobby. I don't think he works on this type of wiper motor, but he can advise you either way.
