Re: 1910 Overland restoration

Jeff, I just noticed you are in Camas. Do you know Jim Barrett? He is very knowledgeable on mags, coils, etc. He's done several for me, great guy. Next time I'm down that way I'll pay you a visit. You must belong to the Portland group? I am a "distant" member. Thanks! I am in Camas. I do know Jim B...

Jeff, what model is that brass carb? I've been looking for a Schebler Model E. Thanks!
It is a Model R Schebler. I have an extra if you can't find the E and need it.

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? Al I am! I have a 14 Model 79 Touring and an almost done (for the last 5 years) 15 Model 80 Speedster (Not aut...

Howdy Don, again, I didn't make the body, I'm not a wood worker by any means. I can build big stuff; shop, barn, etc., but not as intricate as those bodies! My friend David King made them for me, he's very meticulous! Hope you and Sharon are doing well in this weather. Yes, I wish more people would...

Re: 1910 Overland restoration

When I bought my 15 Overland I wondered, why would anyone put a shutoff valve right behind the carburetor? I learned quickly. That was a Model R Schebler, but same church different pew! I took it apart, inspected, cleaned, fiddled, drank a few beers and put it back together. Still leaked. Repeated a...

Re: 1911 Buick 33

I've lamented the same thing in the past, but in a bit of a different way. Not sure your strategy will bear much fruit. "Hey you losers! I need help and none of you jerks will answer me. Every other club is better than you. Are you dead? Please help." Not a great tactic in my opinion, but hey, it's ...

Re: Penetrating Oil Test

I've seen test results where the homemade mixture is the most effective, but I have always preferred Permatex. I just think it works better than any of the other commercial products.

Re: Can anyone recognize this touring?

I love the building in the background. The had cut stone, details, etc. They don't make 'em like that anymore-buildings or cars. I have 2 Overlands, a 14 Touring, and a 15 Speedster. In my opinion they are a fine running car that steers very easily and doesn't overheat. My dad also had a 14 he drove...

Neat photos! I believe it is a 1911 Overland Model 49. Great running and driving car!

Re: Starting 1911 Buick 33

Thanks! That's different than the "R", but same principal exactly. I hated the one on my 15 Overland, but it was the only carb I could get to fit it due to the close proximity to the steering box. The interesting thing about those Schebler's is that they are pretty much omni-directional. I have sinc...

Re: Starting 1911 Buick 33

I assume you have reasonably equal compression on all cylinders, and that the ignition is correctly timed to fire at or after TDC on the cylinder with compression. It’s easy to have the timing 180 degrees off. If you’ve checked these things, read on. I have a 1912 Model 35, basically the same small...

Re: HCCA Library Access

Not to belabor the point, but I'm actually not a Facebook user. A rare breed! However, I do come to the HCCA website almost every day, managing to squeeze time in while running a large construction company. I love antique cars. I drive, work on, and restore them.

Quite the opposite, actually. If you had followed this forum at all before asking your question it should have become obvious that the people here are very slow to respond to these message boards. When they do, they possess a lot of knowledge about antique cars, the real kind. It's a shame really, a...

Re: 1925 Pierce Arrow

Sorry, but I think you might need to do a little more research. 1928 was the last year of the 6 cyl in the Pierce Arrow, they went to a straight 8 in 29. Good luck.

Re: 1925 Pierce Arrow

Did you mean 1935? I wasn't aware they made a V12 in the 20's. But there is most likely a sight glass with a level indicator somewhere low on the crankcase I would think.

Re: Artillery Wheels - tightening up the spokes?

The water thing, if it has any effectiveness at all will only be temporary. I have used a product called "Git Rot", which is an epoxy that can be applied through a syringe into the cracks and joints of the wheels. It takes a lot of patience to not make a mess, and a little goes a long way. I'm down ...
