Re: Mud Season Motoring! (photo)

Someone asked where the crank is on the Schacht. It hangs out the rear of the car. They're a 2 cylinder, apposed, friction drive.

Re: What have you done on an old non-Model T vehicle.

I've been helping a friend restore his 1958 Porsche 356 Speedster. After having the metal work (rust repair) done and bodywork, I started in on it a couple months ago, working in my spare time and weekends, to get it painted, so he can finally start assembly. Here's 2photos taken this evening, ready...

Re: Question for the Fordson Guys

Ken, your Fordson is most likely an Irish Fordson, built in Cork, Ireland and orange would be the correct and original color. I think when production was moved from Cork, Ireland, to Dagenham, England, is when they because blue with orange wheels, though I'm no expert on this. To date your tractor v...

Try Gary Biewer at Tractor Salvage.com. He's got a large wrecking yard and may have what you need. Or you can try the Fordson House (Fordsonhouse.com) as they may have one.

Re: Cast iron surface repair

On some antique tractor cast iron gasket surfaces for the radiator tanks, I've used "Lab-Metal", which is an aluminum paste. I'ts like JB weld, but comes in a can. No hardner needed, as it reacts to air. It holds well, files and sands like metal and is good to over 400 degrees, as you can use it to ...

Re: What is this and want was it used in - Thanks

Possible industrial or tractor use. I have (2) 1928 Allis-Chalmers which use Kingston L-3 carburetors. They look different than this one, but much larger than car ones. My A-C's have about a 409 C.I. 4 cylinder for example.

Re: Allen Schurman Auction Ridgefield Wa

If you just looked at the photos on the auction listing, you would not have known about the engine. I went to the open house and saw the car up close. They had the left side of the hood open, which as you know for that year, doesn't show the serial number, nor much about it. When I opened the right ...

Re: Allen Schurman Auction Ridgefield Wa

I think someone got a good deal on the 1911 touring. The auction's description didn't do the car any justice and they only showed a photo of the left side of the engine. Had they shown the right side, bidders would have seen it was an open valve engine and a six rivet rearend. With exception of the ...

Re: Where were you 50 years ago?

As a 12 yr old at the time, I was with my family watching this on a black and white TV. I actually took a Polaroid photo of the tv with the screen showing Armstrong as he just stepped onto the lunar surface. I still have that photograph.

Re: Brass Lamp Restorer

Here's two suggestions; Britten Brass Works, in Michigan. His work is absolutely stunning, but expensive. Classic Autopart Reproduction Service in N. Calif. I've never used his services myself, but heard good reports. You can google both to get contact information or to talk with them personally.

If there's a timer out there available, I would love to buy one. I have the owner's manual with a go...
