Hello Pete, Nice pictures! Refresh my memory, what is the Bore and Stroke of your engine. Please describe what you did for pistons and how you went about that repair process. My Wisconsin T head engine is going to need some special love and care regarding pistons. So your tips and advice will be well received!
Regards,
Al

Wow Pete, you're a gluten for punishment! That's how my '11 Overland model 49 looks. Once I get learned on the '10 I'm going after the '11. Along with the many other projects I want to get done...……….. Your car sure looks nice now though!

Here is a "before" picture of my 1909 Locomobile engine. Those with a sharp eye will notice the provision this engine has to originally run with a "Make and Break" ignition system. Second is an "After" picture of the same engine after complete rebuild and first run. How exhilarating that first run was! The engine behaved beautifully. The oiling system brought up a pretested 25 PSI. No leaks at the rear main bearing seal. The Delco two spark distributor (same as found on the early Stutz) worked extremely well allowing for a calculated advance and retard on the spark timing. I still need to do some additional work on the carburetor as it starts and runs at an idle and fast idle but stumbles after that. I have some ideas of what to do. The engine is currently running on an early series Carter BB-1. I have located a later series BB-1 289SD and plan to give that carb. a college try. The 289SD is for a larger CID engine about the same CID as the Locomobile. Lastly, you will note that the engine currently does not have a spark plug lead wiring loom. From this forum, what tips and advice can you share on both the set-up of BB-1 289SD carb. and ideas for a very period correct spark plug lead wiring loom. Thoughts, ideas, tips and advice are appreciated.

I have a picture of the emergency ratchet bar, one is of an original unit used as pattern the second is of the finished duplicate. It turned out nice. The duplicate is SS and on the left, the rusty and pitted original is on the right. One hole let to drill when I mount to the shifter gate housing. No more rust for this piece!

Hello Pete, I have had someone make reference on how to fabricate some material that is just like what you describe. I will try to get through some emails and point you in that direction. The tip, that was shared, would be very helpful if that style loom is what you are after. What project would you wiring loom be for?

Pete, I will make yet another response. Since I made the posting of my before and after engine rebuild, I have had pictures shared from an original wood wiring loom from a Locomobile. I have decided to build my wiring loom out of wood. I think I have pictures posted elsewhere that show those pictures.

Here is a before and after picture of a brass valve cage. These pieces are way to damage and not real easy to repair and have them look nice if they are damaged.
