What years were they made?
Detrioter??? Due in 2015 after fergyville.
Gee Dad, now we'll never get the car back together. And I wanted to go fishing.
That's an obscure one. It looks like 1912 through 1917:
I worked on a Detroiter last Wednesday. They were built by the Briggs-Detroiter company. It was a better copy of the Brush.
They sold a model A and a model C, but the one I worked on is a model B.?? maybe the only one ever built.
It holds 8.5 qts. of oil. It does not have a sump, just has dips in the pan and no oil pump. each rod just splashes in the oil like a lawn mower engine.
It has two ball bearing mains for the crankshaft.
No center main.
The heck with the Detroiter, how about the big brass car next to it. The back rest of the seat is damn near as tall as the guy standing along side. Look at the size of the square side lights and the overall height if the brass windshield. that's big car.
I don't think that the Mechanics clothes have seen a washing machine ever !!!
how would you ever get that block back down over the pistons without screwing something up........
That's probably why the boy is there. He didn't have to stoop so far to see if the rings were going in the block?
Jim, that's why they were two men plus a little boy with small hands to help. Maybe the photographer had to help too?
LOL - I always knew when I was going to have to carry something really really heavy or do something very complicated because my dad would say "We're going to need 4 grown men and a small boy for this."
