  1. For future reference the method I would use to free up a seized hinge would be to lock the central hinge flange vertically in a solid vice and with a hammer tap the other flange back and forth until there is some slight movement. Heating the central eye and applying penetrating fluid is generally necessary. Brute force is not required just taps back and forth until there is some movement.
  2. That is certainly one way of freeing up/removing the pin from the seized hinges. They look recoverable to me with a little work such as sourcing a new pin (or making one) and closing the eyes up to fit. When this is done I would vee the cuts slightly and arc weld them shut. Might need a little fitting to get the pin to fit. The hinges look like cast steel to me not pot metal.
  3. The case shown is for a 1916/17 car (series 17/18) as indicated by the two bosses for the rear brake rods. There are corresponding mounting holes on the other side of the case. The earlier cars did not have these bosses and used a different brake set up.
  4. One car that had outboard cantilever springs was the King automobile. The attached link contains a sketch of the cantilever arrangement which has some similarities but not an exact match. https://libwww.freelibrary.org/digital/collection/home/page/18/id/automobile-reference
  5. Is it possible to have someone look at the front hubs to see if there is a grease cap which might identify the make or at least the make of the front axle. That gearbox /clutch set up looks fairly unique.
  6. Keiser it looks to me like it has front wheel brakes so would possibly date it later at around the early 1920's? Looks to be a substantial vehicle whatever it is.
  7. Looks like circa 1917 Studebaker to me. https://forums.aaca.org/topic/101895-newbie-w-1917-2-door-6-cyl-wtb-parts/
  8. I don't think it is a Chandler due to the rear door handle being in the wrong position. I do see what you are saying about the front guard, however, I would suggest it is because of the shadows and angle of the camera taking the photograph. Yes the Overland model 92 did have triplex springs and in effect was a slightly longer model 91 with a few refinements such as external door handles. I still believe it is an Overland model 92 but open to further suggestions.
  9. Circa 1923 Overland model 92 tourer. Possibly a red/blue or black-bird. http://classiccarsexport.com/other-makes/2372-willys-overland-red-bird-1923-barn-find-original-classic-rare.html
  10. Thank you. https://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/technology/us-canadian-firefighters-will-help-local-efforts-in-bushfire-crisis/news-story/b3682d095caacf22de608e1fb123a9d9
  11. I still tend towards a Bour-Davis. The first photo of the unidentified car shows an unusually high and curved dash area. The 1921 Bour-Davis in the attached link shows a similar dash but it does not appear as high to me. http://laexhibitmuseum.org/historic-objects/the-bour-davis/
  12. Perhaps a circa 1917-18 rare Bour-Davis 21-S https://american-automobiles.com/bour-davis/ The wheels look close to me although it is only an artists sketch
