Jay,
Great picture....looking at how the T engine is supported on saw horses....tells the story on how transmission shafts and crank shaft flanges get out of alignment.

Thank you for all the great pictures you post.

From the looks of some of the boys there, it could be Chilocco or one of the other Indian schools. It seems the line shaft has been retired.

About a 13 with electric lights fitted?

The lack of benches, shelves, tools and equipment scattered around the two walls we can see makes me wonder if they have just moved into a re-purposed room or building. Also looks staged. "OK, Look Natural". The fellows on the right in suits looking intently at a vacant spot where an engine used to be. Others posed holding a wrench or a jack handle. The guy turning a rod wrench and the one on the end of the extension cord look most believable.
There is a great story there but I'm not sure what it is.
Rich

The two fellows in the suits are management...looking blankly at the car trying to figure out what happened to the engine.

The two boys with the jack are from Cleveland and are stripping the car. They already have the radiator and hood and now are working on stealing the front tires.

At the third car they are trying to get the wheel off by prying on the spokes.

The fellow in the chair is hooking up a starter to the power cord to see if it will turn over on 110 volts since it won't on 6 volts.

The guy working on the motor is changing the oil by tipping it on to it's side.

Center car is a '15 Hupp. I think the car on the left might be a '16 Hupp roadster.

Dennis - I about choked on my Nicorette laughing while reading your assessment of the scene. Starter part was the best.

Just trying to be helpful fellas.

I could describe many of the photos on the forum so folks would know what was going on but I'm sure I'd get thrown off this site.
