Model 20 Axles

Recommended Posts

I have two axles for a Model 20. These are the later type with tapered ends, keyways and threads for a securing nut.  They are for a standard track car (not Southern track). They are in very good condition with good bevel gears, keyways and threads. I would like to trade these for some parts I am seeking for my 1910 car. Some of the parts I am seeking include:

 

  • Brass cap for the crankcase breather tubes
  • Front spring-to-axle u-bolt x 1
  • Spare tire carrier brackets for rear chassis
  • Primer cups for cylinder pots
  • Owners manual for 1910 car

 

My preference is a trade and I am open to other items. Send me a PM if this interests you.

Thanks,

Peter

Jeff,

Absolutely! Thanks for thinking of me with the breather cap. It is the one piece of the car I am yet to find. I would be happy to send you the axles if you can make use of them. I will drop you a note off line.

Cheers,

Peter

Jeff,

Apologies for the delay.... just back from a short vacation. I sent you a PM just now.

 

Simon, if Jeff doesn't need the axles, I would be happy to help out your Aussie connection. I have friends travelling back home to Brisbane in a few months time so we may be able to have them help with the logistics. I dropped you a note a while back re your printed breather caps. They look great. Any chance of another production run for these?

Cheers,

Peter

If you still need the breather cap, I have found a source.  Classic Autopart Reproduction Service - CARS the has them available at $48 as shown in their catalog.  Here is a link to the catalog.  Just scroll down a few pages.

Hope this helps someone out.  What is the clip that was mentioned?

The reproduction is a one piece brass casting which covers the two up-pipes.  The original cap was a thin brass pressed cover with a riveted clip to hold it in place.

Thank you David.  So what this sounds like is that the reproduction would probably look right when installed, but really isn't correct.  If someone is making a correct one I would be interested in getting one.  That is one of the few pieces that is missing on my 1911 touring.

The repro looks fine on the car, just pointing out the difference.  And, for all anyone knows, maybe the factory produced different covers.  I’ll have to look in parts book to see if there’s an illustration….

Steve thank you for the info on that company they look like a good resource. I see they have gas headlamp mirrors I will need those. 

I don't think there repo vent tube cover looks correct not that it matters much as David said maybe the factory even made different styles. I will still attempt casting some I am also in no hurry for that part.  I do have a drawing for the original but no way of knowing if there was more than one style produced.
