Another test run today to see if the 1910 Mother-in-Law was ready. The sticking valve problem did not show up, but the fuel flow to the carb kept stopping. Had to back blow the line many times to make the run to this weeks church picnic. A complete fuel system flushing is planned. All that fun polishing a brass car after 8 years of neglect is completed.
The 12 looks like it is OK. See more photo's as the cars arrive back home from the picnic.
We did get a lot of folks looking at the cars at the picnic.
Absolutely gorgeous, both of 'em!
I probably should not post this, but the 1910 had an early round tube radiator in very bad shape and was replaced with a flat tube used radiator. It looks good but was letting the engine get right up to that boiling point with antifreeze.
The quick fix was a water pump and it helped just enough in this Texas heat to avoid boiling.
Royce do not read the above.
I knew a farmer who spread gypsum on his strawberry fields so the water would absorb into our clay soil better. I've never had occasion to try it, but I suspect it would make the water adhere and transfer heat better.
Ricks, antifreeze does help with cooling and also increases the boiling point a slight bit.
There are other products but I have not tried them.
Great cars. Keep up the good work.
Beautiful cars! Both of them!
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
I like them both.. beautiful cars.
The two brass T's are loaded along with two cars that belong to a friend and his son.
One stop in Houston and on to the MTFCA tour.
I almost wish I had decided to go along.
