Re: 1909 Locomobile Toy Tonneau, Rebuild Improvements for Reliability

I am wondering what advice might be shared, in this case, as to which set of instruments should be used, the Jones or the Warner.

Re: 1909 Locomobile Toy Tonneau, Rebuild Improvements for Reliability

Its been a while since I posted any new updates. Imaging that! I got to take my turn with that darn Covid-19 thing. I have been under the weather for about 1 month but am just now feeling like I can crawl out of the house, get some vitamin D from the sun and have the energy to do anything. I am stil...

Re: Making a Buick spring bumper holder

Good Work! Craftiness is a large part of our hobby for sure and you were broadly thinking to come up with the brake drum idea for you bumper piece. Have you thought of freezing the rubber hammer head then shaping with a grinder mounted to the cross slide of your lathe?

You are getting there! Keep up the steam. We should be seeing some exhaust coming down the tail pipe shortly.

Re: 1909 Locomobile Toy Tonneau, Rebuild Improvements for Reliability

As we Horseless Carriage enthusiasts all get to deal with "Brass" and brass issues, I have entered an update to a previous Brass Repair and Polishing thread over on the HCCA"Automotive Discussion" forum. You will find several helpful "Tips" and "Hints" there.

Re: Early Solar Brass

Next, yesterday it was to cold to spend time in the field so I chose to pull down this Rushmore headlamp and give a go at polishing the spot of worst degradation so I can determine just what I would be needing to do. I have a couple of pedestal buffers with different wheels and several different pol...

Re: Early Solar Brass

I am revisiting this old thread of mine as I have an update to share here. I have a set of large Brass Rushmore headlamps from a 1913 American-LaFrance fire truck out in the back yard. One of the lamps had some serious brass degradation on it on the bonnet as well in other locations. I have been con...

Re: 1909 Locomobile Toy Tonneau, Rebuild Improvements for Reliability

Hello Site Admin. Thanks for your post and suggestion. However, I am not looking for a part to purchase. I requested a "tip" for someone that has an original Trophy radiator ornament so I can ask a question or two. (Not to purchase) My request for a "tip" still stands. Who has or knows of an origina...

Re: 1909 Locomobile Toy Tonneau, Rebuild Improvements for Reliability

I am searching for a "Tip" for some information on the Vanderbilt Trophy radiator cap ornament. I have purchased a reproduction trophy cap ornament as found on my posting/picture on Oct. 18 on this forum. If you have an original trophy or know who has one, could you please share a reference.

Re: 1915 Maxwell Ignition question

Hello, Do you have any original Maxwell electrical literature? I would get an actual Maxwell wiring diagram and use that as a guide as you troubleshoot your ignition system headache. Good Luck with your quest, you will probably be up and running quickly!

Nice update! I bet you are anxious to get on with making it run and then sorting out all the inevitable small issue so you can drive it reliably.

Re: 1912 Flanders 20 Spruce Up - Any Interest?

Flanders must have been a very viable automobile to average 10,000 units for each of the years 1910-1911 and 1912. Have you tried the Nash club to see if any of those guys may have a spare carburetor?
