Re: Mitchell C J Sykes Electric Gasoline Gauge Info Sought

That is one of the coolest accessories I have ever seen. I have never seen one before, either. Thanks OilyBill, That's what I thought when I saw it. I'm amazed I was able to find the gauge at the local antique mall and then find the sending unit on eBay. It arrived today and it was New Old Stock. S...

Re: Mitchell C J Sykes Electric Gasoline Gauge Info Sought

Thanks to the help of an AACA Forum member we know this was patented in Canada on May 15th 1923. Do any Canadian collectors have any period automotive literature showing announcements or advertisements for this accessory?

Re: Mitchell C J Sykes Electric Gasoline Gauge Info Sought

Hey Rich, How's it going? I wished I could use it on the Maxwell but this apparently went on a car with a rear mounted tank. The stars must have been lined up for me yesterday. I went to the local antique mall and found and bought the dash gauge. The absolute only thing I could find online was an eB...

WWI Ambulance Stretchers

I stumbled across these online and so wanted them for my 1917 Maxwell but it is too short to carry them. Can anyone with a Model T ambulance use them. Please note one is dated 1917 and has original Medical Dept. markings. I have no connection to these, just want to see them go where they belong. htt...

Re: Gas Tank Identity Sought

Thanks for your help guys. I was hoping to solve the mystery of why my Maxwell never had a cowl mounted gas tank like others built in 1917. IF this tank had been available when my Maxwell was built I would have been able to assume it was a preference of the body builder. But since there is no eviden...

Gas Tank Identity Sought

Guys, My 1917 Maxwell was sold new without a body because the original owner wanted to build a body to suit his needs. It came to me with 1929 PA plates and I always assumed it had an Amish built body. It should have had a factory under cowl mounted gas tank but appeared to have been ordered without...

Sent my very first PM to a member about parts in the classifieds 3 days ago and no response. When I check Messages it doesn't show up in the Sent folder but it is shown in the Outbox. Was it never sent or did I do something wrong?

Thanks,

Re: 1 year in: 1925/27 the Pee T

I believe to thing they fly was a patched up Ercoupe. Can't remember if he had a license. There are allot of stories of drive bombing the neighbors and backfiring the engine over houses to scare them. Thanks Jim, Just one last question. As a collector of oriental antiques including Samurai swords I...

Re: 1 year in: 1925/27 the Pee T

That old photo might be an A. I never thought it looked like this T. dad and his brother had several home built contraptions running around then, even 1 that flew. Van Urine would be a great name for a T. Okay Jim, NOW you've really got me hooked! Does the flying machine still exist or a picture? D...

Am I the only one who sees a cutdown Model A in the old photo and NOT a Model T?

Antique Model Engine

I realize this is a long shot but I've always had good luck with all the varied interests on here. I just acquired a 1940's Morton 5 cylinder radial model airplane engine. It is missing 2 exhaust pipes and one rocker arm is broken. Does anyone know of a parts source? Would this possibly be a prospec...
