Try these for now - Im struggling to get the other side brake band and linkage and the correct dizzy cap will get some pics of mayer ? carb inlet mushroom valve inlet.

This site seems limited to pixel size can send pics more easily via my email ronpbowden@yahoo.co.uk

post-92096-14314270549_thumb.jpgTry these - It is a Mayer carb, I have managed to replace the spring in the dizzy and cleaned the points however the rotating brown wheel has distorted oval and does not rotate so will try to restore it to round but obviously could do with replacement points complete. There is model 16 on the rotor arm.

Hi

Yes I seem to have had problems sending pics. I have had to reduce the pixel size and I don't have Email at home so a quick resume:

Yes this is the 4 24 that was apparently very incomplete but I have obtained quite a few bits and bobs and this Sept acquired the headlights and a dizzy cap which is on loan for the moment still could do with full set of points and I do need a left side Brake band and immediate linkage. There a long list of stuff to get including instruments and linkages to the steering column. The engine is now shaping up and I have good compression . The carb. ( Mayer) is a bit of a mystery to me and I have constructed a mushroom valve in the float chamber and have now to sort out pipe connections to the tank. The leather work is slowly coming back with treatment and the hood hoops are now back on after a lot of rebending. Bear in mind this motor has been in storage for nearly 50 years and I am having a battle with our DVLA to re register the vehicle.

I will be back next week I am usually available on ronpbowden@yahoo.co.uk and text 07899962866 is favourite. will try and send more pics.

Does anybody know if the 1920 ish Briscoe 4- 24 4 seater body was imported from Oldsmobile after the fire at the Briscoe factory in 1918.

I ask because the Beverly Hillbillies vehicle (I believe 1922 Oldsmobile) looks very similar to the Briscoe.
