Re: Looking for LED replacement bulbs for tail and cowl lights

I ran the 1129 shown directly off a good battery for my test. 1129 would be for a stand alone brake light in brightness, the one I tested at 6V was more in the dim tail light range.

Re: Cracked Head

Re the head gasket area and around the crack.
That area along the head and block looks to be copper-coat not rust.

Re: Looking for LED replacement bulbs for tail and cowl lights

Are you running 12 volts? Those are the 1129 bulbs I was talking about.

Re: Early 5 lug type RH wheels for sale

Re: Electric Lites

Depending on who or what your read, early 1915. Because of issues pressing the new cowl and body panels, there was some carry over of the 1914 bodies for the open cars into 1915. For sure 1915 but...

Re: Steam cleaning engine/trans?

I used one of the small home type steam cleaners(almost worthless but did help a little) and oven cleaner. Lots of scraping, but was able to keep the mess relativity contained in a small area.

Re: New floorboards,where does rubber seal go?

Original there would only have been the seal on the starter pedal mounted on the engine side. The accelerator pedal arm moves in an small arc so might need a slit or some type of bellow type.
