Re: 1909 Locomobile Toy Tonneau, Rebuild Improvements for Reliability

Hello Pete, Good idea you suggested. I do know if the starter has been properly rebuilt and it still will not crank as it should, the amps are not flowing. Jeff will get this issue resolved and away he will go. That is surely a good "TIP" or advice for the day.

Re: 1909 Locomobile Toy Tonneau, Rebuild Improvements for Reliability

Nice update Jeff! awwhhh, If we didn't have a hard spot every once in a while none of us would be very tough! Lucky for you it was just an oil leak! I have been in a similar position except it was one of those pronounced "knocks" from the belly of the engine. My remedy was not pretty! On the slow cr...

Re: 1909 Locomobile Toy Tonneau, Rebuild Improvements for Reliability

Here is my "Tip" of the day. I just received from a gracious friend a cope of the 1908 Locomobile book. If anyone needs any information that would be in the 1908 manual, please ask.

Re: 1909 Locomobile Toy Tonneau, Rebuild Improvements for Reliability

As promised, I will post three pictures of the new Warner clock to use along with the Warner autometer as shown above. I do ask for a "TIP" for a good restoration source for the face of this new to me clock. I would also like an idea for the mounting bracket for the clock and autometer also. Al Pict...

Re: C T Ham Comet Repairs COMPLETED with Images

I am glad that your lamp repair/restoration has turned out to be a good experience for you. Your Sears will be greatly enhanced with the addition of your restored lights. Wayne is a good guy. I enjoy to see the before and after pictures you shared. That points out that we each can make progress on o...

Re: 1909 Locomobile Toy Tonneau, Rebuild Improvements for Reliability

I have need of a "Tip" that follows up an update that I will share. I just purchased a matching Warner clock to work with the 80 MPH Warner Autometer on the dash of the Locomobile. The "Tip" I need is for a reference to a good clock/instrument face restorer that can renew the face of the clock. The ...

Re: 1909 Locomobile Toy Tonneau, Rebuild Improvements for Reliability

Good News and "Tip" of the day. The folks at the Bridgeport Public library are super accommodating. I heard back from them, they are preparing a DVD with my requested information scanned on it and will have it in the mail quickly. It will be nice to have a complete service manual for the 1909 Locomo...

Re: 1909 Locomobile Toy Tonneau, Rebuild Improvements for Reliability

Here is my "Tip" of the day. If you are restoring a Locomobile or would just like to do some research on Locomobile or Riker, contact the Bridgeport Public Library and ask for the Historical Department. They are most helpful and have a HUGE Locomobile Literature Archive. I can share a phone number i...

Here is a couple of pictures of the last of the Locomobile four cylinder engine design. It is more advanced with a bore and stroke of 4-1/4 X 6, full pressure oiling, manganese bronze crankcase and five main bearings. The engine was built by Locomobile and used in Riker trucks from around 1917. This...

Re: C T Ham Comet Repair Needed

Hello van,
Nice Sears and pictures that show how it was years ago. You have done a very nice job. When you get your write-up finished, on the history, that will even add more to your Sears automobile....
