I am thinking of making new two piece timers from existing cases and rotor bodies. I wonder how much interest there is.

I have a decent reproduction unit that could use a going-through. What I really need for it, though, is a cover.

I have the timer pictured above in my 1910. Tony at TW Timers made a brush to replace the roller and milled the inside. He also pressed in a bronze bushing to better handle the wear. I had the timing cover slightly machined to accept a seal. I also had the cam shaft nut milled to accept an O ring. The car runs great!

I would be very interested in these timers.

Richard, Howard caccia's tooling is still around. You might try to contact Jeff Beaumont and see if he can put you in tough with the right party. Kim

Kim I have talked with Howards heirs. They still have everything but are doing nothing with it. They claim that they may start making the parts again but I don't believe it will ever happen. I have offered to buy the tooling but they are not ready to sell yet. Darel, I have an extra Howard Caccia cover for the 2 piece timer. May be willing to sell it.

Richard, There is a very Limited market for the 2 piece timer but it would be nice to have them available. When Howard died the ones I had in stock were sucked up overnight.
