Franklin Speedster Build

Recommended Posts

Finally got the Motor back together and it ran about 2 minutes and the Oil Pump Shaft Seized up. The washer under the pump shaft

got on top of the pin that holds it in place. This happened when I replaced the low distributor with the high distributor housing. Thanks 

to a member of the Franklin Club I got a replacement shaft and it fixed the problem. I was fortunate that the only damage was the oil pump gear. The cam gear destroyed the oil pump gear and not the gear on the cam that drives it..

Al, Thanks for the note. Everything seems to be OK. I haven't driven the car much. I just had

 a four

corner fusion on my right wrist. It will be 2 months in a cast.

I have been hunting high and low for 7 lug wheels and parts, mostly wire wheels and 20".  I will keep my eye open for 19" 7 lug wood wheels.  Franklin, Nash and Packard all used that type of wheel.
