Re: car identification Stoddard Dayton?

Gene had a neat trick he'd do with that car. It had a big engine, and only crank start. I'm not sure how he did it (I was a dumb kid, now I'm just dumb) but after it was shut off, he was able to get it to start by flipping on the coil switch, and BAM! It would kick over and start without cranking it...

Re: car identification Stoddard Dayton?

Very cool! I believe it is a Stoddard Dayton, it could be a 1911 like the one my parents friends the LeFebre's of Lewiston, Idaho found, restored, and toured. That was a great car. https://www.bonhams.com/auctions/25219/lot/287/ https://images2.bonhams.com/image?src=Images/live/2018-12/14/24827034-1...

Re: What kind of a car is this

That's a good one, but I'm stumped. To me it looks like a late teens car. I thought Saxon, Hupmobile, Overland, Chalmers, Scripps Booth, and more with no matches. I think the wire wheels look typical to me. It's not a Velie, we had one of those. It looks familiar, and it's hard to believe it would b...

Re: 1909 Locomobile Toy Tonneau, Rebuild Improvements for Reliability

That’s an awesome looking car. Funny story. When I acquired my 15 Overland Speedster, I knew it would have to be restored and many things changed. Since they didn’t make a true speedster in 15 I wanted to see what other “made up” 15’s looked like. I went to my Gazette photo index and found all the i...

Re: 1909 Locomobile Toy Tonneau, Rebuild Improvements for Reliability

Jeff, It is nice to hear a "GOOD" "TIP of THE DAY". Any new developments on the speedster? Al Sorry for the delay. Once I got oil pressure I had an unusual amount of oil leaks that I fixed one at a time. Talk about famine to feast! From the siteglass, the underdash copper line connecting the gauge ...

Re: 1909 Locomobile Toy Tonneau, Rebuild Improvements for Reliability

Years ago I used Bob’s Speedometer to repair and restore gauges for my Overland. They did a beautiful job, but it was much more expensive than I imagined it would be.

Re: Cool Tool for Cutting Circular Gaskets

It is a fixed razor blade. For some materials a round cutting wheel would be better, like the cork gasket material shown. But for most I think the fixed edge is better.

Re: Magneto Question

My welder said it was pot metal, but good, clean pot metal. I'm pretty sure that is the method he used. It sounds tricky. He had his best guy in the shop start it and he got so frustrated that the owner ended up doing it. They gave it a shot. It was interesting too that as the material gets heated i...

Cool Tool for Cutting Circular Gaskets

Many of you probably already have one of these, but if you know how hard it is to cut a circle free-hand even following a line, check this out. It's a circular cutter made by Olfa. https://www.olfaproducts.com/olfa-cmp-3-circle-cutter-rotary-18mm-8-1-2-quot.html They probably have bigger ones than m...

Re: Magneto Question

Hey Al, Not yet. I had oil pressure problems-nothing running through the site glass. Not good! After taking the pump off multiple times I finally deduced that the two rotating gears that create the pressure were the wrong ones. They were too short, allowing oil to just run back over the top of them....
