New to Brush


Recommended Posts

Hello from Australia,

I have purchased this Brush pictured below. 

I am slowly going through the parts and working out what we have and don’t.

The history of the car that it was sold new in Perth in 1910 then found on a farm in 1964 and we purchased it from this owner after owning it for 57yrs.

 

Parts I am looking for are,

*Exhaust Manifold
*Oil breather assembly to suit D model
*D style tail shaft with Uni blocks
* Right-hand front mudguard bracket
* Seal cover for Jack shaft  x1
* running board bracket x1
* running board cross braces x2
*also I need to make mudguards and a bonnet.

Now that is what I call a real project. Really a nice find.

In 1979 I did exactly what you are doing, sorting piece by piece, to find out whats missing. I hope that most of the frame nuts and bolts were saved, they have a special knurled head on them to seat into the wood. Do you know the year, serial number, or model number? The Brush data plate would have all that but I don't see any body parts. I sold most of my spare parts for my '12, Model F, but I will check the storage areas when it warms up.

Good luck with your search, the parts are out there.

Skip in MN.

We are a few week on and progress is going well.

next on the list is I have started on the engine rebuild then onto the diff and gear box, and need to sort out mudguards(fenders for the USA folk) and bonnet(hood).

6 months on and the brush has come together, there is still more to do but it’s drivable. The guards are temporary wooden ones so it’s legal to drive on the road and the bonnet (hood) still needs to be painted.
