I have a 1919 northway engine and the cam, crank and generator are direct contact gears... no chains... the crank gear has a fiber core and in my case is somewhat worn but I think serviceable. On this engine the cover for these gears also serves as the front motor mount. There is a gasket to mount this cover. There was no signs any lubrication was ever there to lubricate these gears. There is a hole in the center of the cover where oil could be put in but there was no cover on it and there is no drain to change any lubrication. I suspect the fiber gear may be key to the lack of lubrication in the system. But... Should these gears be lubricated? Would they not be quieter if they were lubricated? If the crank gear with the fiber core is not servicable can one still get them or what is the fix? Thanks Don
I have listings for the 30`s and 40`s for the Mclaughlin Northway engine 78S is the conversion after WWII. I have a nice number of ads from earlier date but none show the plug attached. Plugs from the 1919 era have no numbers marked on the plug and catalogues don`t seem to exist that early... I have found a good number of these plugs around but typically in bad used condition. the one pictures is new. Does anyone have an ad that would confirm that this is the correct AC original spark plug for either the Mclaughlin or Oakland 34b from 1919
