  1. The same one as the starter
  2. He is listed with Mark Chaplin
  3. My 11B had a Dole primer setup, a pump like a tire air hand pump in operation which pumped gas to three fittings on the intake manifold. Have ask Bob Amon where it connects to the fuel supply system on Bertha. It was mounted behind the dashboard with a good sized chrome/nickle knob for your pull-push operating pleasure. Nothing like having gas leaking on the driver's left leg. Tried it once, didn't like it.
  4. Ed Granville lived in Vernon CT, where I live and go by his home frequently as it is about a mile from mine. Decades ago I bought something at a tag sale there not knowing at the time who was holding it and of course now don't remember what it was. He is listed in the '73 Roster and his car, an 11-B coupe, was yellow with black roof and is now in Oregon.
  5. MIne arrived today along with the new Roster/Register. Both are much welcomed, the typeface used for the R/R is very easy read.
  6. The filter on my 147 is a Purolator PER 1/2 which has the restriction on the outlet end.
  7. Looks complete is mobile but not running is in MN 35-191309L11 LKO J. Shoop in PA. https://www.vanderbrinkauctions.com/lot-item/22v-4/
  8. I used K&N P/N RU0690 on my 1930. The flange is rubber and is a force fit over the carb inlet. According to the flow charts it has plenty of capacity for our engines. Gordon
  9. Paul, what to do when the board is in bad shape?
  10. Are you thinking of the one that says Forges Forward under the Franklin? Joe Aronson did that one. Gordon Howard
  11. The factory engineered the adaption from Reo to Olympic for $5000. Just so you know. Gordon
  12. ebay #264637957953 wood is rotten, some pieces missing. opening bid is $2600 G.H.
  13. auction # 184132562839 poorly placed listing G. Howard
  14. How about the pliers, what did you do with those?
  15. They act like a vertical tubular shock turned horizontal. Spring compresses - shock moves easily. Spring extends - shock is stiff to control rebound. Sort of a liquid Stabilator. GH
  16. Each shock position on a car had a unique part number. Try to match them up with locations on the car to identify which ones you have. GH
  17. I looked at SMS also. All theirs is 50s and up patterns except for broadcloth for 49 Packard in what is dark blue or black solid color. GH
  18. To find the true color of your upholstery look in a place which has not been exposed to light such as underside of a seat cushion. I saved such a piece from my 11B and it looks the same as yours which is brown and black stripe on the outer surface and solid brown on the backside. This is called "bedford cord" which is a "double cloth" woolen fabric which has brown yarns which weave in both layers and black yarns weaving only in one layer. It was made specifically for upholstery use. It is basically NLA. Not even Bill Hirsch shows any available and he was supplied by English mills. Gordon Howard

    I believe the intake is aluminum. Again, years since I have had an intimate relationship with one. GH

    Geez, I wish I still had my 11 parts book. That's what happens when you get old and haven't messed with a car for for years. GH

    You are missing the metal piece that goes over the top of all the intake and exhaust pipes to fill the space between the top cover and that around the cylinders. Don't run without it.
  22. I am no longer in the strap biz, which is now in the hands of member John Strawway. He has the stock of the latest production run. Contact him thru his info on the HHFC website or your Membership Roster. Gordon
  23. I have retired from supplying these and they are now available from HHFC member John Strawway. The latest production is of excellent quality.
