Going to a candle store tomorrow, while there I thought I would puck up some wicks for my side lights for my 26 roadster (non-electric). Does anyone know what size is required. My guess, 1/2" wick
My 1915 wicks are 3/8". Lang's catalogue shows the same wick 1915-1925. Doesn't mention 1926.
got mine in Walmart 5 pack for 2.75 in camp goods section fit perfect 3/8 x 8.0
Per the encyclopedia:
"Oil lamps an option on non-starter cars in early 1926 only (those built in 1925) and were the same as the earlier lamps"
I have a E&J tail lamp NOS example I just recently obtained and as the others have said, the wick is 3/8".
The burner wick is smaller than the 1914 and back square lamps which take a 1/2" wick.
Ken in Texas
Walmart only had 1/2" wicks. Price $2.47 for five 8" wicks.
