Re: 1910 Overland restoration

Hello Pete, I reread your early posting and now know what your "F12MAC" is all about and it is not Farmall. Which size is your F12?

Re: 1910 Overland restoration

Hello F12MAC, Does the F12 have anything to ding with Farmall? How far north of the border is your home? You Canadians do certainly know how to have winter. I spent time in North Dakota just below Winnipeg and yes you guys have to be tough to survive your winters. Ours are bad enough here in the mou...

Re: Rebuild Improvements for Reliability 1909 Locomobile

oops, that posted picture is just before the first start and run. If you notice, the engine would not run so good with no carb. in place!

You still have a very nice start to an unusual project. Good for you! I wish I had been able to have that good of a start!

Re: 1910 Overland restoration

Jack, I actually thought you would hear just what he told you he has also told me. I did think he may have suggestions on a replacement seat and needle, however. One thing, however, you are trying to make and keep you car as original as possible. I do think you will be able to locate a seat that is ...

Re: fan for 1910 IHC j-30

You have a very nice looking project car! Good for you! Is this car an original Wyoming car? You are very lucky to have such a good starting point. Does the car run?

Re: 1910 Overland restoration

Jack, You just mentioned what is fun about these old cars! Looking at what is, (maybe not working) and then devising a GOOD fix or remedy that will allow for reliable and trouble free use of the old car. Seems like around every corner, I get to deal with similar but not the same as this issue your a...

Re: 1910 Overland restoration

Jack, I think the mechanical connection, between the new design needle and float arm, is something that can be constructed or built to allow for a much better seat arrangement and also a much better needle for seating. You already have a very GOOD float to work with. Even a small leak will make you ...

Re: 1910 Overland restoration

Are you referring to the Schebler needle? A picture is better than a 1000 words. I have seen several different needle and seat designs for the Carter BB-1. I have even seen a flat faced needle that is supposed to be the "cats meow" for fuel leaks.

Re: 1910 Overland restoration

The more I see your problems with the ancient engineered carb., I would take a serious look at locating a new design needle and seat. Honestly, you may be time (and reliability ahead) to look at replacing your original hardware with a new replaceable seat and Viton tipped needle. I would also do, ju...

Re: fan for 1910 IHC j-30

Hello, You actually have the pattern in your hands. If you have an idea of how to attach the stiffening wire ring to the end of the blades. It should not be a big deal to remove the mounting rivets, trace out a pattern for the new full length blade. Configure and profile the new blade to match the o...

Re: 1910 Overland restoration

I didn't fully answer your request for information on Viton tipped needles. When I rebuild the Carter BB-1 289SD carb. for my Locomobile, it is my plan to install the upgrade Viton tipped needle and improved seats that are available.

Re: 1910 Overland restoration

Do a simple google search for carb. rebuild kits and parts. I am sure you will come up with a wealth of references to viton tipped needles in several configurations. You could possibly retrofit something from another car to work in your specific application. Viton tipped needle along with a well dre...

Re: 1910 Overland restoration

Hey Jack, I am not that familiar with your Model Schebler, but is a remote possibility that you could replace your needle with a rubber tipped needle? I know that Carter has several different "flavors" of needle and seat arrangements that are meant to seal up issues like you are having, (but on the ...

Gil, Could you post a picture of the "over flow tank" that you are asking questions about. I like Cadillac's but am not very familiar with them. A picture would give us a better idea if any of us have the skill set to build one or if we may have one laying on a shelve out in the shop that could help...

Re: Rebuild Improvements for Reliability 1909 Locomobile

Update on the Locomobile project. I now have the fully rebuilt engine back at home and in my shop. I need to complete a few little items as I work towards setting the engine in the chassis. One item is to build the spark plug wiring loom and support brackets. I decided to only run one loom across th...
