Re: 1910 Overland restoration

I sure wish this snow would go away...…….. I usually like to see the snow come, and stay for a brief period, but 4-5 weeks now, is plenty, thank you! I want to get back to my Overland!! Maybe this week, it's supposed to be in the low 40's. Probably have to deal with flooding next :(

Re: 1910 Overland restoration

Howdy boys, been dealing with snow for about 3 weeks off and on. Plowing my driveway, the neighbors, the widow lady down the road, the next guy, just cuz I'm in the neighborhood, then this one too.... When I do get a couple hours in the shop, I'm working on the model a with my helper. He's a sophomo...

Re: 1910 Overland restoration

Morning Al, yup, weather.... Had a big cottonwood fall in our creek I had to get out before the water comes up. Damn that water is cold!! Had to cut it up before I could haul it out with my tractor. Sometimes I forget I'm not 35 years old anymore...… Didn't do anything with it yesterday, rebuilding ...

Re: 1910 Overland restoration

Morning Al, nope, haven't done a You tube. Guess I'd better learn how. Checked the carb this morning and the little brass valve at the bottom of the carb is still seeping just a bit, but not enough to worry about I don't think. The connection to the carb is still giving me fits though. Probably goin...

Re: 1910 Overland restoration

Morning boys! I let it set over night, took a look this morning, and all the gas in the carb was gone. Dripped out and evaporated. But! The good thing is, it came out of the brass valve on the bottom of the carb, and at the connection to the carb. Not out of the float valve!! I will tighten things u...

Re: 1910 Overland restoration

6 hours later and still no leaks! Next step is to get the bolt to stay in place holding the needle. Do any of you know if Loctite will work in gas? I would think it would, but it might soften. Thanks guys!

Re: 1910 Overland restoration

Howdy boys! I'm off to a great start! I put the needle in today, after VERY CAREFULLY bending the arm in a couple different directions to get it level and straight (talk about scary!) I put gas to it, and, leaked, rather RAN out of the valve. So, I adjusted my float, which I can now do pretty easily...

Re: 1910 Overland restoration

Howdy Jeff, was that the tour in '03? If it was, I was in attendance as a member of the Blue Mountain A's, our local Model A club. I remember the trip to Walla Walla. It was a hot day. Several of the cars over heated. I remember the trouble truck hauled a couple. Do your best to come to Pendleton! H...

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!

Re: 1910 Overland restoration

Howdy boys! Great to hear of another Overland guy! Where are you located Jeff? I'm in Pendleton OR. Looks like a WA plate on the car, so you have no excuse for not attending the WOKR Meet this June. If you need info on it, let me know, I'll email it to you. I'm really going to push to get folks off ...

Re: 1910 Overland restoration

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

Howdy Al, well, after 3 hours of plowing snow, we got about a 1' today, I proceeded to the shop to work on the carb. As you can see by the pictures, I'm working with some small parts! The first pic is of the #4x40 bolt I am using to hold the needle to the float arm. The bolt is screwed into the need...

Re: 1910 Overland restoration

Howdy Al, thanks for the compliment, but it wasn't me. I'm more of a steel guy. I've tried to arc a piece of dowel before and it just doesn't work? A friend of mine made the bodies for me. Yes, he did a great job! It's killing him that I have to paint them blue, as was original. He wanted to stain t...

Re: 1910 Overland restoration

Howdy boys, figured I'd better check in. Haven't had time to work on the carb lately. Hopefully this week. We've got about 3" of snow to deal with now, but that shouldn't slow me down much. I do have some good news, the tin for the body of the Model 38 is getting close! Can't wait for that project t...

Re: 1910 Overland restoration

Howdy Al, damn it! I wrote a big story last night about how things were going, attached a couple of pix, and lost the damn thing somehow! :evil: So, here goes again. Now if I can remember what I said last time... To answer your questions, yup, the Model A is still here. I haven't had much time to wo...

Re: 1910 Overland restoration

Howdy boys, haven't had the time to work on the carb lately, but I did do some thinking about it yesterday. Looks like I might have to rethink my thinking! I've got the needle ready to go, but I have to hook it up to the float arm, and currently, that's where I'm at. I'll get it, just have to figure...

Re: 1910 Overland restoration

Morning Al, haven't had a chance yet. I'm working on that '29 coupe, and another model A engine that I want to get finished up. I will have some time this afternoon I think, so hopefully I'll have some success. I'll let ya know. By the way, where the heck are the rest of the boys with projects? I'd ...

Re: 1910 Overland restoration

Howdy Al, just got it home this afternoon, but haven't had time to play with it. Probably tomorrow. From the looks of it, it might be too tall. No snow this year, that was taken about 10 years ago. We're pretty short on moisture this year. The Coupe is a Special Coupe, they were made from July '28 t...
