Re: Unknown Touring Rear Seat Section to ID

Yes Buick and REO used the 1/2" pipe connection. Could be a standard of the time or more likely a major body manufacturer feature. Does anyone know what manufacturer made REO and Buick bodies and bodies for other car brands?

Re: USL starters

I had a 1917 Nelson engine at one time but the bell housing was not on it and thus no USL system remaining. There is however one surviving Nelson car and it should be so equipped.
