The "Douglas Lake Cattle Company" was founded June 30, 1886 and has been operating continuously since. In response to booming demand for beef in rapidly...

Because this tour was about seeing where Billy Miner had robbed the train we decided to have a Billy Miner look a like theme on Tuesday night.

Re: 2015 Brass in Berks County Tour

Great tour report. Sounds like the kind of tour I enjoy over here on the west coast, a driving tour. I always appreciate the pictures. The more the merrier. Keep up posting the events you get to. I'll try to do the same.

Re: Greasing an early universal joint

No seals at all. I could take it apart and grease it. It's got about .010 clearance so it's difficult to pack it when it's together. Won't have much grease left when it's reassembled. I wonder if it might have been oiled when new. I can't see anyone removing the u joint very often to service it. May...

Re: Did You Drive Your Pre-'16 Today?

They film a lot of movies and TV shows in Vancouver. I've had my 15T, 11T, and 12 Oakland on the set a few times over the last 6 weeks. Today it was the 15 and 11 T's. Great day for it. Sun and around 10C.

Greasing an early universal joint

I've had the clutch out and redone for my 12 Oakland 40. While I have easy access to the universal joint I want to grease it. There are no grease fittings on it so I'm wondering what they did back in the day?

Re: 1912 Oakland transmission problem

Yes I agree. It's time to do the transmission. I did have it apart in the early 80's. Can't remember now what I did to it then! This will be a winter project. Have to use the back up car for the Skagit Tour in September, my 11 T :D

1912 Oakland transmission problem

I've had a lot of great service out of my Oakland 40 over the last 28 years but recently It's developed an unusual problem with the transmission. It shifts easily into gear however it doesn't want to come out of first when I'm shifting up to second. Second and third shift fine and I can shift down e...
