Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2017: Please post PICS of your HERSHEY SWAG here... :-)

For the last couple of years I've posted threads after Hershey and the Luray Prewar Swap meet, encouraging everyone to post the treasures that they hauled home. I see no reason why we ought to stop now, so please, post some pictures and descriptions here and show us what you found!!

My real mission was for this year was to find parts for my 1911 Maxwell AB, but that's easier said than done. However, I did have some success that I wasn't expecting. Anyway, here is what I found....

The list includes four Magneto bulbs for my 15, a half dozen Champion X replacement porcelains, an NOS pitman arm and an NOS driveshaft bearing by Hyatt that is PERFECT. There are also three Murphy fasteners that are hard to see. I also picked up a nifty Ford Accessory called "Ever-Tite crankshaft bolts. These are advertised to eliminate the need to grind your crank if it is out of round or worn... I think I"ll just put them in the display case with their original box and instructions. I did manage to find two Maxwell items that I needed: I found a #3 wrench, and a Westchester Carbide generator that I needed. The generator was cheap as brass units go so I was happy with that. Lastly, I have another weakness too... pre-1927 Lionel Trains. The two pieces of O-gauge rolling stock are an 800 box car and an 802 cattle car. Both pieces are from Lionel's early years and were produced in 1915 only.

Certainly not a huge haul, but for me, the brass generator and the train cars made the trip a success.. :-)

Leo, Here's another thread about the odd automatic take up "Ever tite" rod bolts with a link to the patent:

No pics, but found a model a generator for $50. Looks like a new rebuild. Don't know by who. At least appears to have new field coils and brushes. I was suspicious of price, but lady said it was on a car they bought and they "only run alternators", so they were selling it. Hope it's ok. Probably is.

Also found a pair of rear Hyatts and sleeves for $10. They are the new solid roller type, but some folks are having good luck with them. I figure they'd be ok for inners.

I posted this in another thread, but here it is here as well. The front fender brace has been mounted on Betsy, the jury is still out on whether it will stay or not. :-)

Found some neat stuff despite my broken leg. Steve, enjoyed meeting you, thanks for stopping by. You did well at Hershey, love those plug discoveries. I found some T stuff for my 15 project and picked up ad addition to my Ford spark plugs that are in my collection. Terry
