  1. Good shot of the dash Keiser. The below link is a video of a 1924 Model 91 Overland sedan which clearly shows the cowl vent. As far as I am aware these vents were only on enclosed cars and not the tourers. As for the fuel tank the early models did have cowl mounted tanks but later ones had a rear mounted tank and used a vacuum tank. The tank was mounted under extensions to the rear chassis and as the remains in question has no chassis I would expect it is a rear mounted tank model. The ribbing shown on the cowl supports this as it is exactly the same as my 1925 model 91 tourer which has the vacuum tank and the rear mounted tank. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GmMlGtO9w0k
  2. I stand by my identification of the remains as a circa 1924 Overland Model 91 sedan 100%.
  3. Possibly an engine built by Charles Crout himself for an early airplane and under test. See the attached link. https://www.thisdayinaviation.com/tag/francois-c-raiche/
  4. Thanks Bloo. Did some internet searches and apparently water molecules are smaller than brake fluid molecules However, I think there are other areas such as wheel cylinder seals and even the cap seal on the fluid reservoir that would be more problematic in allowing the ingress of moisture than the hoses. Just my opinion.
  5. Reading this thread got me thinking if moisture can permeate hydraulic brake hoses does the reverse happen ie does hydraulic fluid permeate out. I have never seen any sign of this and would be horrifies if I did but considering the heat and pressure involved am I not checking my hoses enough? Perhaps someone can explain it to me.
  6. I agree that it is a steering box but it doesn't belong to the Overland.
  7. Same vehicle after a full frame off restoration, registered and fuelled up ready to go.
  8. Tinindian the way I look at is every post generally adds something of value and we all misidentify vehicles from time to time. If I remember correctly I recently identified a Chev 490 as an Overland Model 91 and I know both vehicles reasonably well. Your posts are always well received.
  9. Circa 1924 Overland Model 91sedan. http://topclassiccarsforsale.com/willys/28957-1924-willys-overland-model-91.html
  10. Had a further look at the bonnet and I have to agree you that it is more than likely a late production Flanders produced when all reference to EMF was removed in lieu of the Studebaker name. Probably 1912/13. The headlights put me in the Studebaker direction as they look like electric to me. Never seen a EMF with electric headlights.
  11. Looks like a 1913 Studebaker to me. Here is a link to a 1913 Studebaker 25: http://www.motorbase.com/picture/profile/2007/06/28/1913-studebaker-model-25-touring-sedan-fvl/
  12. I don't now how you could pass on this project Oldcar. Just look at all that "good stuff" in the back you would be getting.
  13. I would love to see Richard1 from Bolivia get his hands on this. Remember the little Morris Mini ute?
  14. Yes those details could be helpful. There is also a bracket with some sort of mechanism on the rear top of the gear box. A photo with any details of this would also be helpful but it appears to me the OP is not interested in supplying any more information or assistance.
  15. Do you have the top cover/gear change lever? Can you tell us anything about the gearbox internals? How many gears? I have a suspicion that this might be for a marine/boat application.
