Re: 1912 Torpedo gas tank F/S

The irony is partly in the time elapsed, not the communication, Rootlieb was forthright in their issue. (Didn’t want to come across as being perturbed with them or that they didn’t perform). How ever, probably should have dropped you a line.

I wait 6 months to get one from Rootleib and the day after they charge the card and ship it an original pops up...😞

Not everything needs to be tagged with TROG. And this sure ain’t model T.

Re: Round Speedster Gas Tank

Try Rootlieb: http://www.rootlieb.com/ and ask for a Torpedo gas tank, you can get them with or with out straps. There is a bit of a wait to get one as they make them to order.

Re: WTB deep 3 dip sump

There are some neat old bits out there. I’d be happy with a 3 dip Sherman casting, see what can be found. Trying to build a pre-WW1 style speedster, so staying away from the aluminum bits as much as possible. Eventually will have to get on the hunt for a head. Thanks! There was an original one at Ri...

Re: WTB - Steering box (speedster build)

Very cool piece!! Bit out of the price range, good luck with the sale. Here are pics. I think I emailed everyone back who inquired. OP has first dibs, wide open after that. Asking $650 plus shipping. Internals look awesome, still good oily grease in there, no rust. I can’t feel any slop when I turn ...

Re: WTB - Steering box (speedster build)

Very nice! Not quite the era I was aiming for, more along the lines of early 20’s before the fore and aft boxes became the norm. I do miss the H.A.M.B. denver steering box.jpgThis would work. This is advertised on the HAMB website. excellent lh evans denver steering w / chrome pitman arm came out of...

Re: WTB - Steering box (speedster build)

That is a good one, wonder if that is what John Gerber used? Finished moving the house over the weekend and have no clue where my books are (they are not in the garage, which I finally now have all to myself). Think you might have a set of finned Chevy drums that you have massaged a bit too? 🙃 Thank...

WTB - Steering box (speedster build)

Thinking of a directional change, instead of a model A box, using a “bolt on” (side to side) box for the speedster. What are some generally agreeable applications that someone would be willing to part with? A period piece would be cool, if possible (and in budget).

Thanks - Doug
