    What kind of sport roadsters are these?

    The Mercer looks like the best match. The fuel pump? on the side looks the same. What threw me was the plated radiator. I thought Mercer's were painted???

    Stutz was my guess to but the radiator didn't quite look like a Stutz to me. Thanks!!!
  3. Both of these cars look to be the same but what make and year are they?

    high wheeler race

    So, is the race car condition run prior to the high wheel race? If it starts at 11 and the high wheelers are at 11:45, is that enough time to have all the race cars run or do they just work them in? The Speedster didn't say anything about the race car condition run...at least as far as I could see.

    What was this Brass Kingston Carb used on?

    I remember seeing a number but figured it was just a serial no. I believe there was also letter "D" cast in the body. It'll be a bit before I can post the number. It sure has features of the c. 1915 Model T Kingston. Thanks!!!
  6. I think I have seen a carb like this but can't think of what car it was used on. Any guesses? 1-1/8" bore, all brass, Kingston. Thanks!!!

    I've been trying to enlarge the car on the right but as of yet, I can't seem to be able to get it done. I'll keep trying. Thanks!!!

    1908 Simplo

    I was just a young lad back in the 60's I remember seeing a Simplo at the AACA Kaw Valley Tours in Topeka, Kansas. You might try contacting one of their members to find out about it. It seems like it was cream color with a red undercarriage and solid rubber tires.
  12. On the rear main of a '34 V-8 engine there is a hole for a drain tube. All I have in the hole, currently, is an externally threaded ring. I'm assuming there was a line and it was broken off flush with the cap. I that a good assumption or??? One of my friends says his had a line with a check ball in it. Another friend said the check ball was only on grain trucks so that when they were lifted up to dump the grain, the oil wouldn't run out. Did Model A's or B's use these lines? Thanks for the help!

  13. I am looking to purchase a cooling fan for a 1915-16 Oakland Model 32B. It has a Northway engine. I suspect a fan from other General Motors cars may fit. It looks very similar to a 1912-13 Buick. Six blades and a ring around the outside. I can send a photo if that will help. Thanks!!! Verne Shirk
