Re: HCCA Library Access

Quite the opposite, actually. If you had followed this forum at all before asking your question it should have become obvious that the people here are very slow to respond to these message boards. When they do, they possess a lot of knowledge about antique cars, the real kind. It's a shame really, a...

Re: 1925 Pierce Arrow

Sorry, but I think you might need to do a little more research. 1928 was the last year of the 6 cyl in the Pierce Arrow, they went to a straight 8 in 29. Good luck.

Re: 1925 Pierce Arrow

Did you mean 1935? I wasn't aware they made a V12 in the 20's. But there is most likely a sight glass with a level indicator somewhere low on the crankcase I would think.

Re: Artillery Wheels - tightening up the spokes?

The water thing, if it has any effectiveness at all will only be temporary. I have used a product called "Git Rot", which is an epoxy that can be applied through a syringe into the cracks and joints of the wheels. It takes a lot of patience to not make a mess, and a little goes a long way. I'm down ...

Re: 1929 Auburn 8-90 Carb questions

Regarding the manifold heat question, I would leave it off all the time. Those were made for a time when gasoline was not nearly the advanced product it is now, and people stored their cars outside, or at best under cover in the cold. I would also not use any ethanol fuel. Look for the "Pure Gas" ap...

Wood steering wheel repair/restoration

I need to repair and restore the wooden steering wheel on my 29 Lincoln. Does anybody have any restoration tips, types of epoxy to use, etc., or is it better left to a professional restorer. I haven't been able to find one that did older wheels on the internet so was thinking I might have to do it m...

Here's something you don't see every day!

Quite an interesting array of cars in Michigan. I'm curious if anyone in the HCCA knows of these cars.

Re: 1915 Maxwell Carb

Well, your photos are terrible, but it looks like a Tillotson to me. Pretty sure it's a Model A era carb, but I have one on my 14 Overland. I think they are a good carb.
Next time don't take a photo with bright light in the background.

Is this thing on? Where's the activity?

I would hope that people have been touring and have experiences and photos to share! Let me give it a try. We live in Camas, Washington which is located across the Columbia River from Portland, Oregon in SW Washington. We planned on attending the 4th of July tour in Walla Walla, Washington, about 25...

Re: How Late Use of Chain Drive And Friction Drive Transmiss

There are most likely several people that know the answer but won't post it! Frustrating! However, CarterCar was a friction drive car. We actually had 3 of them at one time in our club. A 1907, and I think a 1912, and a 1915! My friend Frank owned the 07 and 15. The 07 is a good looking, good runnin...

Re: water pump / wood spokes

Hello, A nice man on this very board turned me on to an epoxy type product called "Git Rot". I found it to work very well on the gaps in my spokes because it flows (sometimes to much and too fast!) Get the syringes to apply it with. My advice would be to mix it in very small batches, because a littl...

I'm sure you've all noticed the phony attempts to get us to click on their hidden link. Don't do it! It would be nice to have them gone. romanze7 thirstytwo johnwick88 etc. They're all the same. Beware.

Those who made suggestions to you are wise. Mask and paint. Trust me. My 14 Overland was done this way in the early 90's and it still looks great. Don't invite problems!

Try Jim Kahne (Connie), in West Linn, Oregon. Unless you're in a hurry. He does a quality job, in my opinion.

Too bad great tours like this take place after school has started. I would recommend this one. I know there are many reasons to have tours after Labor Day. We attended many of these before our kids entered school, but now it's just not feasible unless we were to leave the kids home, and the stars al...
