  1. Has anyone made a new A-Coil cylindrical body? All internals on ours are good, coil re-wound, nice nickel, but the body is toast. Paper phenolic? Tom Rasmussen Odyssey Restorations, Inc. odyrestorations@comcast.net
  2. Just milky, frothy oil, no rectifier was used on this engine. Tom
  3. We are finding signs of moisture in the oil on our current 1924 Brewster Knight project. Is it common for Knight engines to have more combustion blow-by and therefore more moisture in the oil? Or can the junk ring potentially leak water? Odyssey Restorations, Inc. Spring Lake Park, MN
  4. Need bumper center clamp(s) for our 1931 Custom Club Sedan project. We would be happy to reproduce in fine detail (investment cast) if we could borrow a clean original. Also could use a set of 4 fine original bumper outer clamps, or one to borrow to reproduce. Also need one interior door handle in good condition. Tom Rasmussen Odyssey Restorations, Inc. 763-786-1518 odyrestorations@comcast.net
  5. Of course the switch is incorporated in the switch at the bottom of the column. Not sure why I was certain I had seen a remote mounted Autolite relay on another car. Problem solved. So, how about a correct Autolite generator cutout? Interior door handle? Thanks -
  6. Missing original starter solenoid for our 1931 Custom DeLuxe project. I presume it's an Autolite solenoid. Does anyone have one available, or can anyone tell me what model/photo/other info? Thanks ! Tom Rasmussen Odyssey Restorations, Inc
  7. It just needed some minor repairs, cleaning, contacts cleaning, etc. Works much better now! Tom
  8. Anybody know how to disassemble an A-Coil? Looks like May be necessary to drill out pins in perimeter below the handle? Thanks - Tom Rasmussen

    1925 Lifters

    Thanks Dave & Ben - Tom Rasmussen
  14. Camcraft in Arden North Carolina should have a master for that cam. You will need to grind the lifter faces at the same time. Tom Rasmussen

    1925 Lifters

    I'm helping someone assemble a 1925 engine. The lifters he has have a large, rounded radius on the bottom. The cam had been reground and lobes are flat. What gives? I cannot imagine the lobes would hold up against this radius. Are there any suppliers with lifters available for this engine?
  16. Odyssey has pistons for the series 9 Pretty much everything is available, some parts more readily than others. Timing gears are tough to find and often needed on early 9’s Tom Rasmussen

    Seeking ID

    Seeking ID

    Anybody ever seen one of these? 2-5/8" diameter. One hole in the top. Application? I am trying to ID for a badge collector. How about this one: No size given. Appears to be enameled (Cloisonne) Tom
  19. Ive seen the spring system before. What I like about it is that it does not compromise the Franklin "feel". Does it have enough force? I suppose it would not be difficult to calculate. Once a frame sags, it is very difficult to get it go back, but at least one of these systems should keep it from worsening. Tom
  20. I would love to know the answer to this question as it pertains to a 1930-31 Peerless. We are suspecting that the engine color was black. Exhaust manifold was black porcelain. Intake was porcelain as well, but appears to be a lighter color. Anyone have any input? Tom Rasmussen
  21. Here's how I did it for my 1910: I had the stand-offs and anchors made at a local sheet metal shop: Parts as formed. Anchors were made to Franklin drawing style, yet taller. Anchor half plates were tack welded together., although not sure it was necessary. Stand-off's were made of equal height (the 1910 frame is not a drop center). I machined 1-1/4" pins and put a groove in the center for 1/2" truss rod stock, then welded the pins into the stand-offs. Anchor plate installed:
  22. Thanks Dick. I Got a good one from Bob Erickson. They would be quite simple to make, but I was happy that Bob had one that he was happy to see go to a car. Shop_car_1923_Franklin_Brule_Album.jpg
  23. Thanks. I've got one on the way, hoping I can make it work. Tom
