  1. The working surface of the drum is rusty. Very little can be removed on these stamped steel drums before they are too thin to use. The value depends on cleaning the drum and seeing what is left. Gordon H.
  2. Is that left front wheel a wire, no brake drum.
  3. The rusty items are cylinders, the others are cylinder heads and piston/connecting rods for 1930 and later Franklins Gordon Howard
  4. Har-de-har har. When the cow does jump over the moon.
  5. It has an 18B serial # plate and 18A front fenders. As of 7 pm on Thursday the high bid is $54,100, two fools that won't quit. Wish I was the seller. Gordon
  6. Owners of the above should check out listing 163482104812 . Notice anything unusual about this car? Gordon Howard

    Model 10C Exhaust

    I'd go with that. Did it on my 147 using stainless flex for the tail pipe. I think it will be louder than a1.5" though, so you could use a 2 to 1.5" reducer and 1.5" pipe.
  8. What Olympic had a swing out windshield?

    Oil cooler?

    And even better with the wood frame rails. In the '60s I took Bertha (11-B) to a local meet in some rural location. It was decided to go somewhere else so off we went over rural town roads, I with four women in the car. One of them in the backseat said "this is just like riding in a modern car!". I believe her regular ride was a mid-twenties large touring, probably the worst riding thing of those days.Those Franklins hold the road incredibly well.
  10. There is one listed in "other American automobile ads"section, sedan, $10K, in Henderson NV. Gordon
  11. I have just a few of these left. Prospects are very good for a new supply which will be treated the same as the originals. Gordon
  12. I went to print a legible copy of these instructions and for some reason got 7 extra copies. Contact me if you would like one mailed to you. Gordon Howard
  13. Atlas Rim Tool Instructions according to Atlas: Google Atlas rim tool, click IMAGES, on the second row of images is an image of the factory instructions. The tool needs a couple of different placements for all the operations. Gordon Howard
  14. I believe the results will be announced at the TREK.
  15. I put Custom Classics on the rear of my truck back in the sixties when Bob Green was selling them. They were worn out in7500 miles. Bob said that the rubber was compounded for long term appearance properties rather than tread life. There is nothing special about that tire, the Lee mold was the only 6.50x19 in existence back then and there are photos from the thirties with them on cars (as well as other brands) so bingo, Lees are the only correct tire. Baloney.
