Re: Why won't T start but runs.

Whenever I've had a car that wouldn't start with the starter but would start after pushing or pulling a couple of feet, the condenser was bad.

Remember, I too know how to get to Ocas Island now!

That counter is long enough and there are stools enough for us to both have pie.

FJ, Grant is good, his boiler is sound, it turns out to be another pinhole leak in the weak superheater.tube. Monday he will be shopping for stainless steel tubing to roll a new one.

Burger -

Try this for good Stanley sights and sounds. It's from England and isn't cluttered up with dialogue. Several good hill climbing scenes.

Re: FJ - Rare 1913 Stanley Steam Mountain Wagon FS On HCCA Classifieds

Freighter Jim texted to say he will be here tomorrow with the model 812 Mtn Wgn, a full day earlier than his commitment! I will never get to sleep tonight... After swearing for years I'd never do Facebook, I "had to" open an account to see Jim's photos and videos. What a great job he has. He drives ...

Freighter Jim has the 1913 Mountain Wagon in his trailer and he's making way for California. I don't think he realizes my state of anxiety for him to get here...
Friday, July 5th seems a month away.
C'mon, Jim! Floor it!

Re: FJ - Rare 1913 Stanley Steam Mountain Wagon FS On HCCA Classifieds

Did you have to butter the sides of your rig to get it off the ferry and around the little roads to the airport?? I'll tell you, the basement would have been great with me, too. You probably got it during your winter visit because it stays warm; I got the 3rd floor in warm weather to catch the sea b...

Did you stay in the same room? Third floor with the tower? The house is fantastic and Grant can list every detail of every detail. He collected all those hundreds of great antique component bits, then designed the house to incorporate them. The kitchen was amazing, the stove (and great breakfast coo...

Re: FJ - Rare 1913 Stanley Steam Mountain Wagon FS On HCCA Classifieds

We drove it around the island most of the day Monday and it behaved perfectly. The pilot was strong and blue all day without fussing and the main fire was clear and not smoky or stinky. It made wads of steam and had loads of power on the hills, even with a nearly full car. It seemed not to care if t...

Re: FJ - Rare 1913 Stanley Steam Mountain Wagon FS On HCCA Classifieds

This car was restored by Don Bourdon in 1979 and used by him for 23 years giving guided tours of Woodstock, Vermont and a lot of buns have slid across the leather seat cushions! The paint on the wood is getting flakey, but the metal still looks pretty good. The burns on a Stanley hood have been call...

Hi, Les -

10 hp car? Those are really good looking.
But unfortunately I will be tapped out for a long time to come.
The Mountain Wagon was a heavy lift.

Well, FreighTer Jim, I guess I just might owe you a beer or a coffee or something.

I just got home at 10:30 last night from Washington and bought the 1913.

Re: Start-up problems after lay-off.

I think if the vacuum tank is empty and is not remaining full and has to be re-primed, two things to check; first check that the line from the manifold to the vacuum tank is actually supplying a strong enough vacuum. If the vacuum tank is full of gas (about a quart), the engine will run for a while ...

Re: OT: WTB: 1916 Studebaker Engine

are you sure the engine he's looking for has a head? I have a Series 16 (1916 model year) four cylinder engine, but it had the head integral with the block, but the block detaches from the crankcase.
