Re: 1909 Locomobile Toy Tonneau, Rebuild Improvements for Reliability

Here is another picture of the original Locmobile Hood. You can see the the location of the original detail which is a good "Tip of the Day". For mid November, notice the blue sky in the background! We had snow last week.

Re: 1909 Locomobile Toy Tonneau, Rebuild Improvements for Reliability

Here is the first of a few pictures of the original 1909-13 Locmobile Model L hood I have just taken possession of. The "Tip of the Day" is that much information can be gleaned from original parts as is the case with this hood. This hood has the original serial number stamped into the support bracke...

Re: 1909 Locomobile Toy Tonneau, Rebuild Improvements for Reliability

Here is the "Tip of the Day", always keep your eyes and ears open. I was able to locate and purchase an original 1909-1913 Locomobile Model L hood assembly and just took delivery. However, several years ago, I had a new duplicate hood built as I had no idea I would ever find an original for my autom...

Re: 1909 Locomobile Toy Tonneau, Rebuild Improvements for Reliability

Looking closely at that above vintage picture, that fellow must have be a close fit under the steering wheel with his winter wear. I also notice no top assembly is attached to the Locomobile. I wonder if this "New" Locomobile is being shown by a Locmobile dignitary prior to being sold?

Re: 1901 Le Aster electric starter installation

Hello Tom, Do an EBAY search for Cub Cadet Starter Generator and you should see several of them available along with the specifications. Yes, the belt we used is a serpentine belt that has ribs on the contact side for grip. Let us know here what you determine. As I mentioned before, it is great to h...

Re: 1909 Locomobile Toy Tonneau, Rebuild Improvements for Reliability

Hello everyone. I thought I would share a picture of a, recast of an original, factory authorized radiator ornament. These were sold in 1909 and 1910 being a radiator trophy to commemorate Locomobile victory at the Vanderbilt Cup race in 1908 with car number 16. That car is now known as Old 16. I wi...

Re: 1901 Le Aster electric starter installation

Hello Tom, Here are a couple of pictures that show two belt drive starter systems that I tried on my Locomobile Model L. This Locomobile engine is a four cylinder and is approx. 300 CI. The first picture shows a vintage 1915-19 Dodge Bros. starter generator. That test worked nicely (great) to start ...

Re: 1909 Locomobile Toy Tonneau, Rebuild Improvements for Reliability

I looked through my original 1909-10 Locomobile Service and Repair Manual to see what I could determine about the gas cap differences between a Model L and a Model M. With much study I could find plenty of Locomobile part numbers for a wide variety of mechanical parts but nothing for the fuel delive...

Here is a picture of a 1913 Locomobile 48 gasoline cap provided by another forum poster. Does anyone know if it is the same as would be found on a 1909-10 Locomobile Model L?

Re: 1909 Locomobile Toy Tonneau, Rebuild Improvements for Reliability

I am desirous to get an idea for the gasoline cap. I will build what I need or get a casting, but I do want to end up withas would have been from the factory. Can anyone share a picture from a four cylinder car or an early 6 cylinder car, (Locomobile)?

Re: 1909 Locomobile Toy Tonneau, Rebuild Improvements for Reliability

I have got one nice side shot of a new Locomobile Model L, at the factory, I can see no stripping on it at all. But that only tells me that the particular automobile in the picture may not be ready for release and shipment yet. What are your thoughts and ideas?

Re: 1909 Locomobile Toy Tonneau, Rebuild Improvements for Reliability

Nice story you added! Can anyone else ad pictures of an original 4 cylinder Locomobile, (any model)? I am wanting to verify several small details, on my automobile as well as to get some ideas of what was done to the paint job to make them great.

Re: 1909 Locomobile Toy Tonneau, Rebuild Improvements for Reliability

I have been scrounging around to see if I can determine the degree of original paint striping that would have been found on my type Locomobile when new. That said, a while back I noticed a couple of original pictures of a 1911 or 1912 Locomobile Model L Toy Tonneau and bought them. Now the study beg...
