About a year ago Lang's had one of the NOS New Day that I just happened to see in the close out section, no box, no brush. Lets just say I payed way, way, way less than that one. On the flip side have bought a few in the last year in the $50 range for good used ones.

Where was that buyer when I had mine to sell? That is crazy.

I bought half a dozen several years ago and used two or three of them and sold the rest for about $20 apiece, thought I'd cut a fat hog on the money. Guess I should have kept them.

Ebay is strange. Some guys in San Francisco snagged a photo of one of the carbs out of my collection off my web site, put it on an ebay listing with a similar but not correct for Model T carb, no manifold and sold a ratty Rayfield carb with missing parts -- that would ordinarily be a 50-75 buck carb -- for $305 and a dime. I have a new old stock one with a correct manifold that I should have listed on ebay after they refused to take my photo off their listing. I've have been pretty happy with not much more than that for a correct manifold & a new old stock carb that was ready to bolt on and run. I've sold stuff on ebay for big bucks and given good stuff away. It's crap shoot for the most part. I guess a lot of times it's two guys get into a bidding war but this carb sold to a guy who hadn't bid before. Who knows? Strange.

I bought a 26 Roadster last summer and noticed the timer looked different. I saw the ebay sale and I have an original brown New Day timer on on the Roadster. Anyone have any literature on them? PK

OMG !!!! I just checked and it sold for $154 plus $9 shipping for a total of $163 !!

Could that be a record for a New Day ? I mean it looked like a nice original timer, but $163 ?

Maybe that box was worth more than I figured.

A month ago at the Wichita swap meet I bought a pair for $3. Shop around.

Pat, if you do a Google search of MTFCA you'll find long discussions about them.

Anybody want an original box for $100. I'll keep the timer. Or for $154 I'll sell you one with a better box. I'm sure I have a NOS one in my timer collection. Wow!!

That's just plain nuts! You can get a nice quality, rather, great quality from TW Components, heck it looks exactly like the New Day, and works just as well. I have one on my '15. Altho haven't run it much prior to pulling engine for rebuild, it looks very promising. Try one.

I guess its being at the right place at the right time. Last year I bought 3 nice original New Days at Chickasha and one had an almost new brush with it for 20.00.
The guy had a box of timers and several were New Days. I left the rest and now I wish I would have bought the rest. I bought the best ones and the rest had a little wear but could have been used with a little clean up.
That was on the last day and nobody was interested but me I guess. Go figure.

And by the way I still cant figure out why nobody is reproducing the New Day timer with good materials like the originals.
There may be some that are making something close to the quality of the originals and maybe I haven't seen one.
With all of the roller timers being reproduced and the development that goes in them the same could be done with the New Day. But what do I know.

Good question John!

The need is there.
