Re: Rebuild Improvements for Reliability 1909 Locomobile

Alan, I apologize, I haven't taken a photo of the radiator. It would be from a 14-15 Overland, I'll have to look. In the meantime, I found a beautiful one for sale and thought of you. Unfortunately, the guy is asking $1200. Looks to be a 15 Model 80 to me. It is very nice, but should be for that pri...

Re: Rebuild Improvements for Reliability 1909 Locomobile

My problem is that I tend to spend too much quiet time in the shop planning my restoration project versus doing it. That's why the garbage can is full of beer cans and not restoration by-products!

Re: Auto transport Washington State

I have a recommendation on who not to use. Although I had used them many times in the past, the last (and final) time I used them was a total disaster. It's Passport Transport. They were about 8 weeks late on delivery and it was a never ending hassle of no communication, errant communication, and ju...

Back to the Magneto

Since I now know that my car was not running on the mag, how should it be wired? *The coil would connect directly to the center of the mag. *The power would connect to the positive side of the coil. *The condenser would connect to the negative side of the coil. *The negative side of the coil would c...

Re: Magneto Question

Al, I will gladly measure the radiator, but I have been battling snow removal in the time I'm not at work. Will get it to you as soon as possible. Does the radiator have a little rectangular brass tag on the inside of it next to the neck that says something like Atwood or Atwater Kent, and stamped w...

Re: Magneto Question

Al, Thanks for the help. During the time the mag has been off the car I made new cables from 2/0 copper, even though the existing ones weren't bad, they weren't as heavy duty. Since the mag is still off I haven't had a chance to try them, but good suggestion. This weekend I think I discovered an ans...

Re: Magneto Question

Al, thanks. I wish I could post a video but that is the problem. The car won’t start easily now due to possibly the ignition and/or carburetor issues. It will start if I pull start it, but I haven’t really got it running. It ran great years ago when I started so I left the engine alone, except for t...

Magneto Question

I have a Bosch DU4 Dual mag on a 1915 Overland that I'm almost done restoring. I’m pretty sure I left the mag set up exactly like it was pre-restoration when the car ran (great). The mag is unusual to me in that it has a terminal in the dead center of the cap that is/was fed by a coil. There was a m...

Re: Rebuild Improvements for Reliability 1909 Locomobile

I am after more "Tips" and "Advice". This request is for the proper methodology for soaking wood wheels in Linseed oil with the intent for them to swell up and tighten up prior to prep work and final paint. (Please see wheel pictures on page 9 of this thread). Should I be using "boiled" linseed oil...

Re: Greetings from the road ...

Love the Mountain Wagons! When I was a kid I was lucky enough to be at Harrah's collection with my dad and his friend who worked as a buyer for Mr. Harrah. We were allowed behind the ropes and in to the restoration shop areas, and one time they were getting ready to test drive the Stanley Mountain W...

Re: Wanted: Right drive shaft 1915/1916 Overland model 83 B

I would just have new ones made, even though you say it will take longer. That way you can use better quality steel and not have the same problem later. They're not that tough to make, not sure how plentiful machine shops are there, but I had a set made pretty reasonable price wise here. Good luck.

Hello Jeff, I caught your intent and tried to follow your lead on the "pump pliers" thought for removing the speedo ring!

Hello Jeff, That is a nice unit. Pump pliers are good for some things...for sure. But as you mentioned, you WILL have a new set of problems to deal with when used for this application. Have you thought of using an oil filter type strap wrench that has a nice solid but rubber lined strap? I have use...

Re: Jones Speedometer

I've always found that a large pair of water pump pliers does the trick. Make sure you hold the case in the vise so it doesn't escape undamaged either.
Of course then you have a whole new set of problems.... :wink:

Re: Rebuild Improvements for Reliability 1909 Locomobile

Hello Jeff, When you applied the "oil" to your leather cone clutch, would you depress the clutch then add a drop every 6" ? How jumpy would you let the clutch get before you would re-treat the leather? Al Well, I’ve only done it twice I think in 25 years. The first time in my shop with a toothbrush...

Here is what gives the early Locomobile the ability to stop and start, (cone clutch). What are your thoughts, experience and advice, from the close-up picture of the clutch material? I am thinking that this clutch has many more miles. Of course I will need to degrease as the rear main has been leak...

That would make for a very newsworthy police chase :) For a large club tours with a other carriages, I would probably take the risk. I would be limited to that though.
