Re: Rebuild Improvements for Reliability 1909 Locomobile

Next in line, with the above shown manual fuel pressure air pump, is the dash pressure gauge. This gauge is in place so you can determine if you have enough pressure, (2 lbs.) to move the fuel to the carburetor and not to much pressure to pop the tank. Here is a picture of the Locomobile dash air ga...

Re: 1910 Overland restoration

Hello Jack, Now that is a good success on which to resolve a particular design issue on your Overland. I guess another test will be running the engine up to temp and with the vibration if it will still hold gasoline. I am going to guess that this issue is "put to bed" now. What will be your next par...

Re: 1910 Overland restoration

Jeff, How about your starting your own thread that relates directly to what you have going on, maybe 1915 Overland carb. updates, or the like. We can then watch and chat with you about your project and Jack with his and mine elsewhere as we look for "Tips" and "Advice". I would like to know more abo...

Re: 1910 Overland restoration

Jeff, Are you still an Overland guy? As I recall your car/cars are a bit later than 1910? Is your fueling system the same as what Jack is dealing with? Maybe you can share some experience?

Re: 1910 Overland restoration

As a "tip", I would encourage other posters to be patient and share the best quality pictures available as it is e...

Re: 1910 Overland restoration

Re: 1910 Overland restoration

Good Morning Jack, My Tip for the day is for you to lay low and get past the "bug". This is a good time for you to spend some time contemplating your remedy and how to get your carb. back together and in better form that when it was new! You have a "cold" and over here it is "cold". I have some outs...

Re: Rebuild Improvements for Reliability 1909 Locomobile

While working on the design for the spark plug wiring loom, I am also working on getting my carburetor issue resolved. Here, I will post a few pictures of the evolution of the carburetors that my engine has seen. The first is the original all brass Locomobile carburetor. Second, is an early series a...

Re: 1910 Overland restoration

Hello Jack. Is the Model A still in the way? :D After close evaluation, do you have the room to spot face the body in preparation for the sealing area under and for the replaceable seat? How much meat do you think you have to deal with to run threads for the replaceable seat? Maybe to allow you to m...

I am after a tip or a bit of advice regarding the building of brackets to attach a similar version of ht spark wiring looms for my project. Take a look at the pictures and share your thoughts. What are the thoughts for a good choice of wood to build these loom pieces from?

Re: 1910 Overland restoration

hmmm, considering what you told me about the float and arm. You could likely change the position of the float to the arm by shimming or some other method rather than even trying to flex the arm in order to get the geometry your need for proper function. That is my tip or thought on this subject. Now...

Here is a "before" picture of my 1909 Locomobile engine. Those with a sharp eye will notice the provision this engine has to originally run with a "Make and Break" ignition system. Second is an "After" picture of the same engine after complete rebuild and first run. How exhilarating that first run w...
