I have an Unrestored double Lubester with sight glasses, It is Orange in color and where the plates were, it quite clearly visible that the plates were 14 inches diameter, Due to the Orange color, i was guessing GULF, but i have never seen any plates 14 inches diameter, Is this something unuaual ?
Hi Nicole: The model A Ford crank is round on the end that inserts into the crankshaft bolt with two ears to catch in it. The other end is a hex socket used to remove the lug nuts from the wheels. If the shaft on your easel is 3/8 square, as I understand your measurements, then a 3/8 square drive socket could be used on it. A deep socket used on a 3/8 impact wrench could be welded to some sort of hand crank to do the trick. Just weld the end that fits the bolt or nut to the crank and slip the square end over the protrusion on your easel. The deep socket would give plenty of depth for the 1.25 inches of square shaft. Hope this makes sense to you and helps, also....Dale
The upper one is the tilt and the lower raises and lowers the painting. The lower one is the one I use the most as you can tell from the shiny bit. Problem is that because the socket does not go very far on it, I have to hold it at the socket to keep from dropping it. I tried a 7/8 long star socket but that did not work. So I had been seeing Model A crank handles online but they did not give dimensions--so if anyone knows what they are (probably too big) I would appreciate it.
I thought you guys would appreciate this story. I bought some stuff from a guy that was renovating a house built in 1923. He was tearing down a poorly built wall and found that is was partly made from this sign. We learned that ham and eggs was a political movement in the 30's here in California.
June-July, August 2009 and October 2009 - Gilmore-Yosemite Economy Runs and Gilmore Grand Canyon Economy Run December 2009 - Mobilgas Economy Runs 1950-1968
The Gilmore era predates the Mobilgas Runs and the Gilmore Run articles are some of the best overviews written (very little has been written about these previously) before the publication in 2014 of my Economy Run book. All are well written by D. L. Cole in my opinion.
Hello all, I recently aquired this vintage tire display stand. I did not know this, but according to research I have done. Ford made tires around 1940. I was told there where reproductions made of these, but this one is original, and I believe somewhat rare? Appreciate any knowledge of these. Thank you, John
Was about to restore this and hang it in my garage. Saw the sticker on the back and decided to check it out. Just wanted more info on it. Now im thinking on waiting. Any ideas what i got here? Stock photo. Mine is torn down. All original parts from what I can tell.
