Re: 1956 International travel all

Ha! You can barely get a response here about brass car questions. Wouldn't you have better luck starting here? Took me about 2 seconds to find.

Re: Cool Tool for Cutting Circular Gaskets

It is a fixed razor blade. For some materials a round cutting wheel would be better, like the cork gasket material shown. But for most I think the fixed edge is better.

Re: Rebuild Improvements for Reliability 1909 Locomobile

What an awesome find! I wish more people in the hobby would read and participate on this forum. Lots of needed parts out there and folks willing to help out. Connecting the two is the old and never-ending challenge.

Re: Magneto Question

My welder said it was pot metal, but good, clean pot metal. I'm pretty sure that is the method he used. It sounds tricky. He had his best guy in the shop start it and he got so frustrated that the owner ended up doing it. They gave it a shot. It was interesting too that as the material gets heated i...

Cool Tool for Cutting Circular Gaskets

Many of you probably already have one of these, but if you know how hard it is to cut a circle free-hand even following a line, check this out. It's a circular cutter made by Olfa. https://www.olfaproducts.com/olfa-cmp-3-circle-cutter-rotary-18mm-8-1-2-quot.html They probably have bigger ones than m...

Re: Magneto Question

Hey Al, Not yet. I had oil pressure problems-nothing running through the site glass. Not good! After taking the pump off multiple times I finally deduced that the two rotating gears that create the pressure were the wrong ones. They were too short, allowing oil to just run back over the top of them....

Re: Magneto Question

I'm happy to report that at long last I got the Overland to fire up and run! It's been a long struggle. Being a "Dual" mag, I didn't realize that there is a second set of points below the main terminal/cap. I hooked the wire from the coil to that, but it still didn't run, even while being towed. I f...

Re: Installing Tight-Fitting Rear Wheels?

You could try getting the car high enough that you could put the tire and wheel on a floor jack. If you have a good one it seems like you could control it pretty well for elevation. If the jack is perpendicular to the car, when you get it lined up you could use the jack to advance it in while you fi...

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...

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...

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...
