Picture 2 shows the right front of body. I think I can use the floorboard riser structure as a solid location to mount the cowling bracket.

Here is a couple of pictures of the last of the Locomobile four cylinder engine design. It is more advanced with a bore and stroke of 4-1/4 X 6, full pressure oiling, manganese bronze crankcase and five main bearings. The engine was built by Locomobile and used in Riker trucks from around 1917. This "Tip" is just for information relevant to Locomobile design and evolution. This engine could certainly be a "heart" for a future project.

Here is my "Tip" of the day. If you are restoring a Locomobile or would just like to do some research on Locomobile or Riker, contact the Bridgeport Public Library and ask for the Historical Department. They are most helpful and have a HUGE Locomobile Literature Archive. I can share a phone number if you contact me direct. I currently have a specific piece of relevant information for the 1909 and 1910 Locomobiles in progress at this time. I will share an update when I receive the information I have requested.
