Information on 1921 Oakland

Recommended Posts

I just bought a 1921 Oakland, Model 34C I believe. The car is unrestored, mostly complete and a good solid car. However, I do need a generator and a replacement brush cap for the starter. I am sure I will need more items as I start the restoration. Any information on the generator such as make & model would help.

I also have a question concerning the cone clutch. The previous owner had started to replace the cone clutch with a modern flat clutch. He told me that the cone clutches would grab. I notice the original clutch lining is leather. Are there modern materials, such as Kevlar, that might work better and improve the operation of the cone clutch? Or would I be better off to finish the conversion to the flat plate clutch?

I thank you for any advice or suggestions you can give me.

Dave

You need to talk to Andy Wise 302-245-7276  He will be able to answer your questions and fix your clutch.  Also, there is an Oakland Club with lots of info available.  Call Steve Cook 636-458-6729  Good luck!

Your generator should be a Remy 911-A

Are you missing the generator all together?

By Starter Brush Cap are you referring to the cover band or end housing?

I can help you with these items.

Hi Jason,

Do you have the capability to repair distorted pot metal end castings on a Delco Model O-F?  (1922 Stutz)

Thanks,

Bob
