Re: 1910 Overland restoration

Howdy Al, yup, I'll keep at it. I'll let you know when I get back to work on it. Right now, I'm busier than a one legged man...….., well, you know. OK, I'll stay in touch!

Re: 1910 Overland restoration

Howdy Al, haven't been on here for a while, busy with spring time stuff. That and finishing up the '29 Model A. All I have to do is put a spare tire on it, and she's road worthy! Well, kinda. The old tires, that are 60+ years old, are flat on one side from setting so long with no air, and I'm still ...

Re: 1910 Overland restoration

Howdy boys, been awful busy lately with spring time projects, haven't done much with the car. I am now looking for an Overland mechanic who can tell me how to adjust the shift levers. Grinds when I attempt reverse. I sure hope there is someone out there who has some experience with these.

Thanks!

Re: 1910 Overland restoration

Hi Jeff, it was in high gear. It turned over pretty easy. I made sure it was tied down so it wouldn't take off. I was a little uneasy about that too, but it worked well.

Re: 1910 Overland restoration

Howdy boys, yes! I am a very happy Jack Rabbit! The wheel start was a suggestion from a friend of mine who has model T's. Said that was safest not knowing how it would perform. It worked great. Second roll, I was impressed! The carb performed ok while running, but did leave a puddle when I shut it o...

Re: 1910 Overland restoration

Keeps kicking me out for some reason. I went to YouTube and did their thing, tried to post it here two times, nothing. Doing something wrong. Why does this have to be so difficult?

Re: 1910 Overland restoration

Thanks!

Re: Source of wood body kits

Morning Al, mostly as a hobby I believe. He's done a few other projects for people that I know. He built a body for a Creators Popcorn wagon a few years ago that turned out really nice. And yes, I think it was Red Oak. Not being a wood guy, I'm not sure. I can work metal, but not too good at the woo...

Re: 1910 Overland restoration

Morning boys, It's been a looooong week. Very nasty cold I've been fighting. Stayed in the house 3 days in a row! Haven't done that since I went through cancer back in '90. Anyway, spent most of the day outside Friday and Saturday, getting some of the spring work done around here. No, I haven't work...

Re: Source of wood body kits

Morning boys, the fellow I had build the bodies for my 1910 and 1911 Overland may want to take this on. He is very particular, an excellent craftsman, and a good friend I have known not only in the Fire Service for 35+ years, but on a personal level as well. I can sure ask if you'd like. And, he is ...

Re: 1910 Overland restoration

Morning Al, The Schebler E is original to my car. Not real common, from what I understand. I'm seeding gophers today, as I have been working at it for the last few days, so I haven't had time to do much with the car, however, I should get to it this afternoon after a trip to town. My scheme with the...

Re: 1910 Overland restoration

Howdy Al,
Well, I looked all over town for a 4-40 lock nut, but had no luck. I found some in the town about 30 miles from Pendleton, so I will head over there Wed. Damn, hope this does it! I'm on the hunt for a Schebler Model E, if anybody has one they want to part with. Thanks guys!

Re: 1910 Overland restoration

Howdy Al, I decided I'd take the carb off the car again, easier to get to everything, to adjust the float level. I am in need of a #40 lock nut, but do you think I can find one in Pendleton? Only if I buy 250 of them, and they won't be here until the truck comes in on Tuesday! How many times have I ...

Re: 1910 Overland restoration

Morning Al, the carb is still seeping a tiny big. I'm going to have to adjust my float a bit more. As it currently is, there is no way for the float to push the needle down, it just settles by gravity pressure. I think I can put a nut on my bolt that the needle is attached to, so it will push the ne...

Re: 1910 Overland restoration

Hey, where is everybody?! Anyway, I had a very small drip on the floor, actually two drips. One from the bowl drain (It's not as tight as I'd like it) and the other from the throat of the carb, which tells me my float level may be off just a tad. So, I've adjusted it, and we'll see what it looks lik...

Re: 1910 Overland restoration

Morning boys! NO LEAKS!! I think I may have successfully solved my problem of a leaky "D" Schebler. Won't know for sure until I drive it, but I'm very optimistic at this point. I'll check back later today.

Re: 1910 Overland restoration

Howdy boys! I'm back for another round! Had to do a little rework on my gas tank for my temp firewall. Replaced the tank with a different one, and did a little plumbing. Got the needle back in the carb and put gas to it. This will test my needle and seat project. I'm going to let it set overnight an...
