Re: 1929 Auburn 8-90 Carb questions

Regarding the manifold heat question, I would leave it off all the time. Those were made for a time when gasoline was not nearly the advanced product it is now, and people stored their cars outside, or at best under cover in the cold. I would also not use any ethanol fuel. Look for the "Pure Gas" ap...

Wood steering wheel repair/restoration

I need to repair and restore the wooden steering wheel on my 29 Lincoln. Does anybody have any restoration tips, types of epoxy to use, etc., or is it better left to a professional restorer. I haven't been able to find one that did older wheels on the internet so was thinking I might have to do it m...

Here's something you don't see every day!

Quite an interesting array of cars in Michigan. I'm curious if anyone in the HCCA knows of these cars.

Re: 1915 Maxwell Carb

Well, your photos are terrible, but it looks like a Tillotson to me. Pretty sure it's a Model A era carb, but I have one on my 14 Overland. I think they are a good carb.
Next time don't take a photo with bright light in the background.

Is this thing on? Where's the activity?

I would hope that people have been touring and have experiences and photos to share! Let me give it a try. We live in Camas, Washington which is located across the Columbia River from Portland, Oregon in SW Washington. We planned on attending the 4th of July tour in Walla Walla, Washington, about 25...

Re: How Late Use of Chain Drive And Friction Drive Transmiss

There are most likely several people that know the answer but won't post it! Frustrating! However, CarterCar was a friction drive car. We actually had 3 of them at one time in our club. A 1907, and I think a 1912, and a 1915! My friend Frank owned the 07 and 15. The 07 is a good looking, good runnin...

Re: water pump / wood spokes

Hello, A nice man on this very board turned me on to an epoxy type product called "Git Rot". I found it to work very well on the gaps in my spokes because it flows (sometimes to much and too fast!) Get the syringes to apply it with. My advice would be to mix it in very small batches, because a littl...

I'm sure you've all noticed the phony attempts to get us to click on their hidden link. Don't do it! It would be nice to have them gone. romanze7 thirstytwo johnwick88 etc. They're all the same. Beware.

Re: Need help removing new wood spokes so I can powder coat

Those who made suggestions to you are wise. Mask and paint. Trust me. My 14 Overland was done this way in the early 90's and it still looks great. Don't invite problems!

Re: Who builds wood wheels, west coast or other

Try Jim Kahne (Connie), in West Linn, Oregon. Unless you're in a hurry. He does a quality job, in my opinion.

Re: 19th Annual Skagit/Snohomish Fall Tour

Too bad great tours like this take place after school has started. I would recommend this one. I know there are many reasons to have tours after Labor Day. We attended many of these before our kids entered school, but now it's just not feasible unless we were to leave the kids home, and the stars al...

Re: 1929 Chevrolet International odometer

Does the speedometer work and the odometer not work? Or do they both not work? If you're handy, it wouldn't hurt to take it out and see if it turns with a drill motor, maybe look inside for obvious issues. I've had work done at Bob's Speedometer, and it is good quality. Just bring your wallet, becau...

Great looking cars! What is the red touring (probably the photographers) that is partially shown in a couple shots, and then with the two ladies in front of it? Looks beautiful.

Gravel Road Discussion

Regarding Gil's comment about the gravel road "country lane" touring. I think if it's advertised up front in the tour description then people can decide if they want to participate or not. What rankles many folks is when there is little or no mention of it, even in the morning drivers meeting, when ...
