All this time at home while we fend off the spread of Coronavirus COVINT-19 pandemic, I decided to open up the crate that contains my original Locomobile Model L radiator.

Re: Rebuild Improvements for Reliability 1909 Locomobile

Hello Jeff,
Thanks for the "TIP" for the radiator Durocar is offering. That is a nice radiator for sure, but my pockets are simply not that deep. When you get a chance send me a picture or two of the radiator you have. Good luck with your set up and ultimately running Overland.

Re: Rebuild Improvements for Reliability 1909 Locomobile

Well Jeff, It sounds like you sure know how to enjoy and invest your time! Did you ever get a chance to take a picture of your extra Overland radiator? I don't recall, what year and model is it for? Were you able to sort our your magneto issue? Is your area dealing with much Coronavirus? Regards, Alan

Re: Rebuild Improvements for Reliability 1909 Locomobile

I have been thinking a bunch about Brass and the way it looks, with Coronavirus, we may have more time on our hands to mess in the garage than we have thought! It also appears that our usual Swap Meet shopping may be shut down for this year. So, I will try to post a "Tip" to keep us up and thinking....

Re: Rebuild Improvements for Reliability 1909 Locomobile

I have received a "TIP" about a Foundry in Pa. Does anyone have knowledge of the "Cattail" foundry. If the responses are good, regarding this reference, I would like to give "Cattail" a try for a couple of castings I need for the 1909 Locomobile as well as a couple of other projects.

Re: Rebuild Improvements for Reliability 1909 Locomobile

Here is my "TIP" for the day. It is important to keep "enthused" on whatever project you may be working on. This is my inspiration, a picture of the same model Locomobile that I am restoring and this picture hangs right over my desk where I see it every day. It does help to keep me as focused as pos...

Re: Rebuild Improvements for Reliability 1909 Locomobile

While you are considering if you know of and can refer me to a good smaller foundry that does "lost wax" type castings, I will share a "TIP" on a different subject. This tip involves using a good eye for small details that certainly help a car when fully restored. Shown below is a MFG. tag from an e...

Re: Rebuild Improvements for Reliability 1909 Locomobile

I have been thinking about the time frame and change from the "Brass" to "Nickle" in our early automobiles. Here is a picture of a cast brass cap that is Nickle plated. Who may be able to share some definitive information on what year Locomobile offered Nickle. Was it some of 1911, Some of 1912 or a...
