Re: Gasoline White's

Nick,
The Owners Manual has a section on the starter and a wiring diagram. There also is a diagram in the parts book I can send. I think I can copy these and keep the size small enough to e-mail. I need an e-mail address.

Re: Gasoline White's

Check with the National Auto Museum (Harrah's) in Reno. They have a 1910 Touring. I have taken extensive photos of that car. I got a disk of high quality digital scans of a Parts Book, Manual and sales book from them for my 1910 White GA. They may have other years. The cost was around $100. The sale...

Re: Brass era transmission oil. Anybody using this?

Ken, This is the reply I got from Chevron: "Unfortunately, Multifak only has ISO 320 base oil & would not even provide a "band-aid" to the situation. To be honest, I would check with Mobil they have ISO 1000 & up viscosities that would work for your application." It sounds like Multifak is not an ap...

Re: Brass era transmission oil. Anybody using this?

I have been talking to a Chevron lubricant specialist about the safety of some of their oils with yellow metals. I just e mailed her about Multifak and expect an answer next week. I will post the reply. I did find out that Meropa Oil which is sold by some vendors as safe for yellow metals, is in fac...

Re: Your best brass car trailer specifications?

You might look at TPD Trailers in Sacramento. They will build whatever you want, but are expensive. Everyone I know that has one really likes it. I am planning on having one made (because of the over-height need). I have not had much luck finding an over-height quality used trailer. -Dave

Let us know how it works. Another thought is some of the automotive clears. I haven't done that but it might be worth a try. -Dave

Re: Hello Horseless Carriage Community Copper & Brass protec

Rob, I used to use a Rustoleum product called Clear Seal that did a good job. I have a copper fire extinguisher lamp I did over 40 years ago and it is still shiny. Of course, Clear Seal is no longer available. They now make a product called "Crystal Clear Enamel" that sounds like it may be the same ...

Re: 1928 Pierce Arrow ignition question.

There are three pull switches to the left of the center lock on the dash. The furthest left switch is the left ignition system, the center switch is both ignition systems and the right switch (closest to center of the dash) is the right ignition. The three switches to the right of the key are lighti...

Re: 1925 Pierce Arrow

There are two valve handles sticking up on the lower right side of the engine. The rear one drains the oil, the front one allows oil to run out if there is adequate oil in the crankcase. If nothing comes out add oil until it does.
