Re: 1910 Overland restoration

Hello Bill, What were your attempts to resolve your fuel leak other than adding a manual shut-off valve upstream of the carb.? The valve is probably a good thing! None of us like the smell of raw gasoline in our shop and a puddle on the floor!

Re: 1910 Overland restoration

I had not considered the elevation of your temp. dash tank. Hmmmm, Model A Fords have plenty of head as the tank in in the cowl. The carb. they use is probably engineered to stand up to the additional head pressure. Model T's, until 1926-7, had the tanks much lower. Anxious to hear how this pans out...

Re: 1910 Overland restoration

hmmmmm, it appears that you have a "Gremlin" tormenting you! Without being there to assist I am at a loss to determine what might be going on to result in that elusive gasoline leak. While you are asleep tonight you will probably have one of those "epiphany" moments where the solution simply pops in...

Re: 1910 Overland restoration

Hello Jack, I would encourage you to take plenty of pictures, along the way, as you finish the restoration of the Overland. It is just to easy to use a cell phone now days and very easy to build a photo file. It will amaze you how often your peruse your pictures to remind you of one detail or anothe...

Re: 1910 Overland restoration

Hello Jack, You should get plenty of tips from those among us that have magneto experience. I do know that the REMY is a different beast and hardly no shop will work on them, (there must be a reason sadly). Please describe what you did as you went about rebuilding your magneto. Were your windings go...

Re: Modern Replacement Material for Bakelite

Hello Jack, It looks like your are successful in figuring out the picture posting process. The nice thing about using Delrin, as you have, is that your finished part is bullet proof and will last a serious long time unless you abuse the piece in some fashion. Now that you have picture posting down, ...

Re: Modern Replacement Material for Bakelite

Hello Jack,
Can you post a picture or two of your car, the magneto and the new cap that your son built. It would also be good to see the coupling your refer to. We could take a look and see if we could help. Thanks for your experience with the Delrin

Re: Modern Replacement Material for Bakelite

The problem with Bakelite is the process involved and heat. A small home shop such as mine does not have the capacity to complete a true Bakelite process. That is the reason for the modern casting substitute. Any other thoughts from this group?

Modern Replacement Material for Bakelite

I am in the process of casting some new Locomobile script radiator caps. I remember reading a very nice article, in the HCCA Gazette, on this very subject. Sadly, I do not recall which issue to look in. I have also tried to search the index, of past Gazettes on this website, with not much luck. Can ...

Re: Rebuild Improvements for Reliability 1909 Locomobile

Who has "Tips" or Advice" or plans/parts for building a spark plug lead loom (or in my case two of them one for each side of the engine)? Please see a round brass unit that is found on the engine of an early Simplex.

Re: Rebuild Improvements for Reliability 1909 Locomobile

Here is a picture or two of the Locomobile script lights now ready for installation. The "TIP" here is to pay attention and work with what you can to arrive at the goal you set. The goal I had was to have a full set of proper Locomobile script Solar side lights and tail light. I researched to determ...

Re: Rebuild Improvements for Reliability 1909 Locomobile

Thanks for your watchful eye, I have already been in touch with that small investment casting business. The Locomobile caps they show is from an earlier series Locomobile and is not the same as I need. I may consider having a new one or two recast.

Re: Rebuild Improvements for Reliability 1909 Locomobile

Who has the ability to roll a bead? I will be needing to have the rear fenders built for the Locomobile. I need a good "Tip" on a good sheet metal shop.
