  1. Dwight, That doesn't look like a bent pushrod - it looks a broken pushrod. In this case, you have other good ones to take the measurements from to have a new one made. This is a rather simple problem in my humble opinion. Terry Wiegand South Hutchinson, Kansas
  2. Larry, What is the material used in the rollers? It looks like phenolic in the photo. Terry Wiegand South Hutchinson, Kansas
  3. Keith, You guys driving around in these OLD open touring cars are making me do some really hard time. The engine from the '16 is up in Davenport, Iowa being rebuilt and it won't be until sometime next year before the car will be back on the road. I guess I'll just have to suck it up and drive that real low mileage 1920 Coupe that we have - you know, that one that has less than 5,000 actual miles on it since being built. Keith, that '16 is simply beautiful! Terry Wiegand South Hutchinson, Kansas
  4. Here is another photo that shows how the gauge mounts into the tank and the spiral float track. Terry Wiegand South Hutchinson, Kansas
  5. Here are a couple of photos of the gasoline tank fuel gauge for my early 1916 D-45. The guys at Nostalgic Reflections restored this for me. The only thing left for me to do is to cut the hard rubber washer and/or gasket that goes between the flange on the tank and the bottom of the gauge head. The float spirals up and down in the slot in the tube to give the reading. Really pretty simple back in the day. Terry Wiegand South Hutchinson, Kansas
  6. I was able to visit with Chris Paulsen a while ago and he told me that the Buick sold for somewhere between $1500.00 and $1600.00. Terry Wiegand South Hutchinson, Kansas
  7. I will try and let everyone know what it sold for as soon as I can. There was a lot of stuff at this auction and they did not move as fast as a lot of folks had hoped for. Terry Wiegand South Hutchinson, Kansas
  8. Here is another photo. Terry Wiegand South Hutchinson, Kansas
  9. Here are a couple of photos of the 1915 Buick after it was moved outside of the building. Terry Wiegand South Hutchinson, Kansas
  10. I think that I heard someone say that aviation gas was alcohol free. If that is the case, why not run that then? Terry Wiegand South Hutchinson, Kansas
  11. I'm still trying to keep moving forward with things on this car. Here is a photo of the period accessory dash clock. This is a porcelain-faced Sessions clock and from what I have been able to find out this was a modestly expensive timepiece back in the day. I have had it cleaned and calibrated and it keeps accurate time for being over 100 years old. Having its mounting base removed from the dash panel allowed for polishing out the dash.

  12. Mark, Give Rex Curtiss at Precision Power in Lansing, Michigan a call. His number is - (800) 794-5962. If anyone can help you it will be Rex. He is the master with these old starter/generator units. Tell him I sent you his way. Terry Wiegand South Hutchinson, Kansas
  13. The rear axle assembly on the 6-Cylinder models is of the 'full-floating' design. The 4-Cylinder models used the 'three-quarters floating' design. There was very little commonality of parts between the 4's and the 6's. Terry Wiegand South Hutchinson, Kansas
  14. Don, I think that I remember someone somewhere saying that their overrunning clutch gear got installed backwards and that they had a huge problem until it got corrected. I would think so! Terry Wiegand South Hutchinson, Kansas
  15. Bryce, On your fuel gauge - does it look like the ring holding the glass in is some type of snap or expansion ring? The curved segment with the markings looks to be in pretty decent shape - you might want to pull the pin and remove that so as not to do any damage to that piece. From the photos it is obvious that the glass lens goes in from the top. Terry Wiegand South Hutchinson, Kansas
