Re: 1904 Ford Model B - “ Running On Empty “

I like the "electric starter" connected to the crank shaft. Is it just a dc motor with a lot of torque? How is it connected?

Re: Overland model 85T

I suggest posting this on the Willys/Overland Forum. They have a "For Sale" section if you scroll down. Also, a photo would be helpful.

Re: Rebuild Improvements for Reliability 1909 Locomobile

I like Evercoat Slick-Sand and Eastwood Contour Polyester Primer-Surfacer. Both products have a heavy build and sand easily without clogging sandpaper. I finish with 400 grit paper before applying the top coat.

Re: Brass Lamp covers

There is also "anti-tarnish silver cloth" used to prevent oxidation in silverware. I'm not sure if this works for brass, however.

Re: 1909 Lambert A3 restoration question

An interesting project on a friction-drive car. Eaton Detroit Spring is a well-known aftermarket spring maker. Another is Coil Spring Specialties in Kansas and Spring Works in Santa Rosa, CA. They are all capable of duplicating your spring, especially if you have one to copy. Another (perhaps cheape...

Re: Rebuild Improvements for Reliability 1909 Locomobile

I have also used "Gaskets-To-Go" for custom-made gaskets. They make custom gaskets, rubber parts, springs, etc. in low quantities. I've been pleased with their work and prices.

Re: Overland Model 83

I thought I'd reply to your post. It's only been 12 years. The Model 83 Overland was introduced in June, 1915 to coincide with Panama Pacific Exposition in San Francisco, so a number of these cars were made in '15. The 2018/2019 HCCA Directory lists 3, 1915 Model 83 touring cars and only one 1916 Mo...

c1907 Motorcycle Factory Film

An interesting Rover Motorcycle factory film. A few brass-era cars are also shown. What year would you say? I only guess 1907. Rover began production in England in 1902.

Re: DIY Primer Cups

The Model 20 is not over-powered, but it runs nicely. We end up arriving with the 2-cylinder cars, but that's OK; gives us more time to enjoy the scenery.

Re: DIY Primer Cups

The Hupmobile is actually on the road. I went over it mechanically and restored the top, though no painting as yet. We took it on two HCCA tours this fall (25 and 50 miles) with success.

DIY Primer Cups

These primer cups were on my 1911 Hupmobile when I purchased it. I thought nothing of them until the restoration, only then realizing they were made up of plumbing fittings.
