Pictures from Chickasha, I'll try to comment on each but it tough as the preview does not show all the picture and the revise does not show the pictures.

Looks like a 25 touring think it was $7000


Interior



I as thinking about this, asking $3500, probably would have said yes at $2000+ little


Lots of Matag engines, $100-300




There were at least three turkel decks


This was the second and lowest price



Nice looking coupe






Bought these for $900


Electric water pump


Great car for parades with electric fan and water pump

Speedster, standard little high at $7000


Nice REO if you have $30,000


Yet another deck...
More tomorrow, if I remember!

Tony showed a picture of Maytag engines. Would there possibly be a Maytag spark plug for sale?

The price on that Model T tractor conversion is about dead on.
The rear end kits often bring between one and two thousand alone and I've never seen one offered for sale that included steel fronts.
I bet the seller doesn't haul it home.

Is picture number 6 a Stanley Steamer?
What did it sell for?
If you want some entertainment watch Jay Leno's u tube on an early Stanley racer that he owns.
Stanley Steamers used kerosene as their boiler fuel and gasolene for the pilot.
Jay is using gasolene for both. Very exciting.
I think that I would use diesel number 1 for the boiler fuel.

Picture 6 is not a Stanley. It's a 1902 car from a little know maker. Sorry I don't remember what the name is. It is a fantastic car. Gas powered, not steam.

Larry was right next to me in the South building selling his AC Brake setups. He sold at least three sets today. I might try a set next time, they have several advantages over Rocky Mountain brakes:

A really neat accessory - a high volume oil pan for the Model T, as seen in the South building. This has enough extra volume to provide extra cooling for the engine:

We were told the old car in picture #6 was Dyche or Dyke, not sure which. Seems like only a few were built and this is the only complete one left. There is suppose to be and engine somewhere. All this from gossip picked up at the time, aided by my memory....

Tony - He did say it was a Dyke or Dike (not sure of spelling though). Glad you remembered!

The engine was under the rear deck.

The Dyke car came from a friend of mine. It was made in St Louis, MO. by a man named A.L. Dyke. It was a kit car that was sold to a man back east.
It had a few owners up till now. Mr. Dyke is supposed to have had the first automobile parts store anywhere. It was in St. Louis.
This is the same Mr. Dyke that published the "Dykes" manuals you can still see around for working on autos.
It's a cool car. Those fenders are wooden.

Dykes don't do a whole lot for me...lol

Anyone know whether the Dyke car sold and for what? Kit car or not, I like it. Owner says it is not in running condition, so curious what it is lacking to become serviceable.
Regards,
Scott

It was a kit car when it was new. The Dyke was sold I am told. I have some pictures of cars like it.

Fun seeing forum fellas too. Steve Jelf took departing picture as we left so he might put that up unless my mugg messed up his photo!

I'm wondering if the strange pan pictured was from a T powered Gleaner Combine? Bud in Wheeler.

Anyone know if that '25 Touring car for $7K happen to sell? Looked sharp.

Thanks,

The ford tractor conversion and the Dyke left on the sale trailers on which they arrived. I guess they could have sold, but I am fairly they didn't.
Friday was VERY slow, would have left at 11 am if I hadn't booked a room for the night. Drove up to see "Beckies Speedster" (it was in the 2013 Forum) in Okalahoma City, sure looks nice. Should be completed by mid May for a concoors event.

The Dyke sold. It didn't bring the 30K but a deal was made. The selling price wasn't told to me.

Look real close at that PULL FORD rear wheel picture Royce included. The drive gear was so incredibly worn away that it didn't even touch and couldn't interact with the large bull gear around the wheel rim. I'd still love to have the unit but a machinist would be getting a lot of my money.


Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Roger Karlsson, southern Sweden on Saturday, March 22, 2014 - 08:15 am:

What little I can see of the drive gear on the Pullford doesn't look all that worn away to me? Maybe there is a way to move the rear axle to free the bull gear when pulling the tractor without the engine running? Then perhaps it can be adjusted back to contact when it's to be used again?


Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Tony Bowker on Saturday, March 22, 2014 - 08:24 am:

I too thought it was badly worn but on closer inspection the external wheels had been moved backwards so it could be placed on the trailer. There is an adjustment behind the external wheels which would bring the driven gear and wheels into contact.

Seriously thinking about buying the AC brake set up I saw at Chickasha. I saw them the last day and Larry the maker said he had already sold 9 sets.

The good thing about these is that you have a brake effect in forward and reverse.

As I understand the other well known brand dosn't do this.

How can I get a hold of Larry for his brakes?

Here are more pics of the early parts lying around, some of these are Mark's pieces. He had bodies too, while non-authenic in constructoion details, would be fun bodies on any T chassis.


just a little rust out to fix!

Somewhere, I do have photos of a 1903 (?) Dyke that used to be owned by a Bay Area Horseless Carriage Club member. And that car is not it. So there must be at least two of them surviving. As I recall, he did say there were only a very few known remaining, including one very incomplete. His looked different than that one. It is a runabout with a front cover that looked more like a 1904 Cadillac, kind of low and flat as opposed to the Renault style bonnet. The car had been in the Bill Harrah collection.
Thanks all for the pictures! I wish I could have been there.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2

Wayne- the Dyke you are referring to is still here in Alameda and the owner is aware of the car that was at the swap meet. You are correct in that the two cars look nothing like each other. Dan
