Franklin Series 16-A, Model 163 Airman 1932

Recommended Posts

Hello ,

 

We have Franklin from 1932 and now we are trying to renovate it. We can't identify some parts. When we discover what it is and find those few parts we need to buy them. Please help me.

 

1 problem is that we do not have this part : pictures 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, 1.4 - we think that it may be air cleaner. Please, confirm...

2 problem is pictures: 2.1, 2.2, 2.3, 2.4 - what are these 2 outlets for ? what do we have to montage there?

3 problem is pictures: 3.1, 3.2, 3.3 - the same problem - something is missing.

 

I'll be grateful for each piece of advice.

3.1 is the master cylinder. The brake light switch one wire will go to the amp meter and from the other terminal the wire runs to the stop light. The fitting on the top should have a copper tube connecting it to the brake fluid reservoir.

1.3 is an  what they called an air cleaner,( it would keep rocks and pebbles out )

2.2 I can't tell were this photo was taken.

Are you sure there was not a hose, possibly flexible, from the carburetor to the other item showing with an outlet hole of similar size to the carb intake?

Picture 1-3 is the air cleaner/supercharge.  I've posted a picture of the set up on my 33 Franklin
