Re: 1911 Buick 33

I've lamented the same thing in the past, but in a bit of a different way. Not sure your strategy will bear much fruit. "Hey you losers! I need help and none of you jerks will answer me. Every other club is better than you. Are you dead? Please help." Not a great tactic in my opinion, but hey, it's ...

Re: Penetrating Oil Test

I've seen test results where the homemade mixture is the most effective, but I have always preferred Permatex. I just think it works better than any of the other commercial products.

Re: Can anyone recognize this touring?

I love the building in the background. The had cut stone, details, etc. They don't make 'em like that anymore-buildings or cars. I have 2 Overlands, a 14 Touring, and a 15 Speedster. In my opinion they are a fine running car that steers very easily and doesn't overheat. My dad also had a 14 he drove...

Re: Can anyone recognize this touring?

Neat photos! I believe it is a 1911 Overland Model 49. Great running and driving car!

Re: Starting 1911 Buick 33

Thanks! That's different than the "R", but same principal exactly. I hated the one on my 15 Overland, but it was the only carb I could get to fit it due to the close proximity to the steering box. The interesting thing about those Schebler's is that they are pretty much omni-directional. I have sinc...

Re: Starting 1911 Buick 33

I assume you have reasonably equal compression on all cylinders, and that the ignition is correctly timed to fire at or after TDC on the cylinder with compression. It’s easy to have the timing 180 degrees off. If you’ve checked these things, read on. I have a 1912 Model 35, basically the same small...

Re: HCCA Library Access

Not to belabor the point, but I'm actually not a Facebook user. A rare breed! However, I do come to the HCCA website almost every day, managing to squeeze time in while running a large construction company. I love antique cars. I drive, work on, and restore them. I love seeing photos and narratives ...

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.

I would hope that people have been touring and have experiences and photos to share! Let me give it a try.
