Locomobile Parts Department "Wanted"


Recommended Posts

Does anyone happen to have an old original 1909 Locomobile rear fender that could be used as a pattern?  The fender I need does not have the "skirt" around the outer edge of the fender, per the factory photo attached.

It appears that I will not quickly locate an old fender left over from a restoration that can be used for a pattern.  Would the owner of a 1909 - 1912 Locomobile drop me a note as the second best would be to make a paper pattern that I could use to replicate the rear fenders for the above pictured Locomobile.  Thanks

Does anyone have a dozen nice original brass nuts to affix the spark plug leads to the top of vintage spark plugs.  The thread is 8-32.  I know that these are readily available but I would sooner spend some time cleaning up an original early style than buy new.  Look through your cast offs....

Hello,  I actually rounded up the count of "brass knurled nuts" that I need.  The Locomobile is a four cylinder and is running two plugs per cylinder.  I need a total of eight nuts.  I hope you have them and have eight and that they are not the same look as the modern "sterile" brass nuts.  Thanks for your reply!

Al - saw you are looking for a rear fender, I may have what you need.  I have a 1914 Limo that I had some one from the car club make me a set of rear fenders.  He is in Ohio and I am in NJ  , he copied them off a car in Ohio but it was the wrong year.   I can send you pictures and dimensions if you want- it is a pair      I believe the car he used was a 1912

Hello Mike,

I am interested in your spare, but incorrect for your car, rear fenders.  Please send over pictures so I can determine if they can be made to work on my 1909.

Good Morning Mike,  Sadly, this year I will not be making the trek to Hershey.  (I have other pushing commitments).  I would like to know more about your fenders.  If you have pictures, either post here or send a PM.  Tell me what you can about the car that was used as a pattern from which your fenders were built.  As I recall, your Locomobile is a 1914 and you are guessing that your fenders are replicated from a 1911 or 12?

Hello Mike,  How did Hershey treat you this year?  Were you able to find and procure lots of needed bits and pieces that you are looking for?  If you get a chance, please forward a picture or two of the reproduction Locomobile front fenders.

Hello everyone in the Locomobile arena.  I have a new "Want" item.  I have heard, on the Locomobile grape vine, that someone among us has a pattern for the Locomobile 48 oil pan.  There is currently a need for a missing oil pan, so if you happen to have a repairable spare or happen to know of the oil pan pattern, please drop a note.  Maybe we can help yet another Locomobile 48 to come to life.

Thanks,

Alan

I am trying to restore an locomobile that is missing many parts.  At the present I am trying to figure out what and where did it have an "air pump".  Any ideas?  Thanks Mick  maehayes@centurytel.net

Hello Mickey,  What year and Model is your car?  That will help us to help you.  Do you have the bulk of the big stuff, engine, trans., chassis?  The later Locomobiles actually did have an air pump to provide pressure to feed the fuel system to the carb.  Some cars were fitted with a Kellogg air compressor that could be engaged to help with flat tire repairs.  Pictures of your project are also helpful.  Where are you located?  Lets see if we can help you out.

Regards,

Al

I am looking for any Locomobile or literature collector, that may have a duplicate or original of the 1909-1910 Model 30 and 40 instruction book.  I am missing some of the middle pages in my original and would like to make copies so I have the information I am missing.  Please look in your literature collection and see if you can help me out.  See the attached picture of the cover.

Everyone should be safely back from what I understand was a good Hershey.  Did you locate and procure any nice Locomobile parts?  It would be nice to share, with the rest of us, your successful hunt for your Locomobile "Parts Wanted".
