Re: 1916 Sears & Roebuck Accessories for Fords

Terry, I have at least as many as you show. The only duplicate I have that matches yours above is the red 1914. JG Birdsell catalog. If you bought it on ebay, there is a good chance I was the seller. I found 12 of them in almost perfect condition. I kept one and sold the other 11. I wish we lived cl...

Re: Stevens Tool Catalog. any interest in a run of reprints ??

The printer is currently making my second "proof" copy. If all is OK with the proof, then he will make 20 "test" copies for me. Those will be the copies for the first 20 people who have contacted me. After I see how the feedback is for the first 20 copies, then I can print as many as I want any time...

Since I have buckets full of originals, it just a matter ...

Does anyone have a list or chart that shows what lengths of bolts are used between the engine block and hogs head to the crankcase. Also how many are needed.

I agree with Erik. Going to look does not hurt.if you go as informed as possible. There is no telling what was used to build that car with. It could have a ruxtel in it. There could be a real 1914 engine in it. The person who built it may just have used what was in "grandpas old barn" it may actuall...

Re: Saw this on Facebook...Thoughts?

The car is little more than a chassis. More than likely built from excess parts. The T's are designed to do that. I will conceded that they are not designed to do that day in and day out, but occasionally , yes. There are period photos showing the same amount of twist. I can show you roads here in t...

While the fully restored car was nice, it is too much work keeping it that way, and you really do no...
