  1. I have recently got my 1923-4-39 running and on the road (see previous posts and video) and have come across an issue that i'd like the clubs advice on. my Buick has been running well for the past few months, I run her every weekend with many smiles and thumbs up as I drive down PCH. Yesterday, when I fired her up she ran well for about 2 minutes, then sputtered down to running on 3 cylindres. I let her sit for a few minutes, fired her up again, and the same thing happened. I continued this cycle all day- hoping that she would somehow "fix herself". Well she hasn't. It is my #2 cylinder each time- runs smooth, craps out after about 2 minutes, let her sit fires up smooth- craps out to 3 cylinders. I am by no means a mechanic by any stretch of the imagination, a tinkerer at best. Changed the #2 plug, changed the #2 wires. What do you think it is, and where should I start? I'll keep the forum updated.
  2. BOUGHT A 1923 BUICK TO RESTORE. WHEN I TRIED TO GET THE BACK WHEELS OFF THEY WOULDNT BUDGE. UNDID THE HUD CAP, PULLED OUT THE SPLIT PIN, PULLED OFF THE NUT AND FOR THE LIFE OF ME COULDNT GET THE WHEEL TO COME OFF THE AXLE. WAS TOLD ITS A TAPERED AXLE AND NEEDS A PULLER. MY STANDARD PULLER WITH THE THREE ARMS JUST DOESNT GRIP BECAUSE OF THE "HOUR GLASS" SHAPE OF THE THING. SPENT $200.00 BUYING A BEARING PULLER THAT HAS A COLLAR TH GO OVER THE HOUR GLASS SHAPE OF THE HUB, BUT STILL COULDNT GET TO TO BUDGE. I HAVE OF COURSE UNDONE THE BRAKES COMPLETELY. ANY ADVICE????????
  3. This beauty of a Buick has not been on the road since July of 2006. The ressurection started back in November of 2006, and was completed November of 2014. Actually with minimal effort too! I purchased her from the original family- even have a picture of it the day it was bought back in 1923. The engine was "stuck", so the 1st thing I did was try to "unstick" it by hooking it up to the back of my Expedition, pulling it down the street and popped the clutch. That did the trick, after checking for any collateral damage, which there was none, she went back in the garage, with minimal tinkering over the years, under a cover, forgotten for the next 8 years. Fast forward to May of this year, I decided to "git'r" goin'. It needed the water pump rebuilt, as well as the carburetor and vacuum canister rebuild. Relined the gas tank, changed the plugs and wires, bought a new 6 volt battery and crossed my fingers. Flipped the ignition on, stepped on the starter and "chug, chug chug" she fired right up! She starts up without effort every week, as I take her for her weekly cruise down the 101 in Encinitas CA. The video is of its 1st trip out of my garage since it was "pushed" in back in November 2006. Also posted are various pictures of the resurrection.

  6. I found a box of home made tools, adaptors and other specialty made items for working on a V8 1923 Cadillac. I believe there are 23 items in the box all marked as to their use. Some of the tags are things like brake adjustment tool, fan shaft to generator puller, water pump drive shaft bearing housing removal tool and so-on. These probably work on any mid-1920's Cadillac with a V8 but I'm not familiar with these cars. I got these when I cleaned out the garage of a deceased collector who had a 1923 Cadillac. The entire box of tools $125. They will be in the Hershey Flea Market at space 3CK14-27 if you are interested.
  7. 1924 Ford Model-T, these were known as "doctor's coupes", black with grey upholstery, 3000 miles on original rebuilt engine, hydraulic brakes added to rear, so the brakes perform like today's cars. This T has a original engine that was rebuilt to modern standards with a heavy crank shaft, it has an original B/W overdrive from the 20's that was used on many old cars, and disk brakes were added on the rear instead of the inside the transmission band that was stock. The T-Model has been converted to 12 volts with electronic ignition inside the distributor. (If someone wanted to go back to the old wiring methods, I have several coils that I can include with the car.) This 1924 Model T doctors coupe is in great shape and has been touring three tours a year for the past ten years without a breakdown. It has a Model A crank and balanced engine. It is a very dependable car to drive. $10,900. 336-765-8312. email: wwhitfield@triad.rr.com This Model-T is located in Okeechobee, Florida, delivery assistance available world wide.
  8. My dad bought a 1923 Oldsmobile truck from his uncle in 1993. He is the 3rd owner of this truck. It was running great but recently started having engine problems. Does anyone know of someone near Jacksonville, FL that would be will to do some engine repair? We are having a hard time because no one will touch it. I am hoping we can find someone to help us get it back on the road. My sisters & I love riding in it with our kids!
  9. I just bought a 1923 Dodge Business Coupe and I need any information and/or pictures of this make/model. Also need a source for parts. wlpatterson@yahoo.com
  10. INTRODUCTION<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p> <o:p> </o:p> Hello to all my new antique auto friends!! My dad and I bought the Oakland on 9 JULY 2009. It was sitting on the corner down the street from our family-owned business and we noticed it while returning from lunch. Old things are more my thing so dad was pretty perturbed when I made the unannounced turn out of traffic and into the parking lot were the Oakland was sitting on a trailer. Dad and I quickly learned that we were both well acquainted with the car as it used to be part of a display at a local museum since 1966. <o:p></o:p> <o:p> </o:p> Because we work in manufacturing and business had been slow, dad and I decided to purchase the car and this will be my space to document the restoration process. I welcome any comments and advice but please be kind as I have never tackled anything of this caliber before. Honestly, I thought if I was ever able to own a neat old car like this I would be retired and much older. Moreover, I envisioned if that time ever came that I would buy one already restored because I have never been mechanically inclined. I am more of the artist-type and I just got past mourning the end of my band after 15 crazy and very eventful years. So, goodbye to my coveted 1976 Gibson Les Paul Deluxe and hello to my new interest in antique cars!<o:p></o:p> <o:p> </o:p> THE CAR<o:p></o:p> <o:p> </o:p> The Oakland was donated to the Franklin County, Ohio Historical Society in 1964 by the estate of a long-time resident of Plain City, Ohio. In 1966 the car was given to the Center of Science and Industry (COSI) in Columbus, Ohio, when at that time it underwent a partial restoration. There was a full roof replacement done and a quick patch to the body behind the passenger side front wheel…..which I discovered was an old tin gasoline advertising sign formed over wood and spray painted black! <o:p></o:p> <o:p> </o:p> When we got the car it didn’t run but everything that really matters was there. We pulled the engine and transmission first and found there must have been a collision of some sort with the car. The inside honeycomb to the radiator was partially smashed and the part where the front bumper was attached was bent. The engine cleaned up wonderfully and we had to get new piston rings and a timing chain. I don’t know what is considered high mileage for this vintage of car but the odometer reads 23k which is confirmed by the title.<o:p></o:p> <o:p> </o:p> In the past few weeks we reduced the car down to the frame, sanded and painted it. We sanded the wheel spokes, sealed them natural and painted the hardware black. We rebuilt the generator and distributor and have a couple big decisions to make regarding the carburetor and pump. I understand the Marvel carb was not dependable when the car was new and might be dangerous to use and alternatives run $500-$1500. The vacuum pump (I think that is right, the thing on the firewall with leads to the gas and water) I understand is fragile white metal that needs to be carefully cleaned and if broken is hard to find and expensive. <o:p></o:p> <o:p> </o:p> Today the engine and transmission went back on the frame and the wheels will be put on in the morning. If everything tests well with the engine we will tackle those tough decisions with the carb and pump. I understand the radiator might be salvageable depending on if there are holes or bursts. One good indication is it was holding a lot of fluid when we pulled it. I also understand the honeycomb can either be replaced with a restoration piece or something modern. <o:p></o:p> <o:p> </o:p> In the meantime, I continue to keep an eye on eBay, local auctions and swap meets for side mirrors, headlight lenses, tail light lens, handles, door releases, dome light, visor, shock strap, instrument light, rubber cover for the running boards, radiator cap and gas cap. I’m sure I am leaving things out but that is basically the little details plus whatever extra or after market things I learn about along the way. That travel trunk would be really cool!<o:p></o:p> <o:p> </o:p> I don’t expect my follow ups will be as long winded as this was basically a run-down from day 1 to day 46. My gallery will include a more comprehensive collection of photos if anyone is interested. THANKS COMING ALONG ON MY JOURNEY! <o:p></o:p> <o:p></o:p> <o:p></o:p>
