  • How to Identify Original Equipment Parts

    I guess there's no question when it says so right on the part. My old bike tire has had a slow leak for a few months, so I finally changed the inner tube, and was surprised to read the label. What's pictured is the only markings on the tube. I've never seen anything like this before.

    BTW, the slow leak was from a fold when someone installed the inner tube years ago.

    Then squared it a touch on the inside of the bend so it would fit in my stretcher machine, and pumped the curve into it.

    The end pieces...

    Well CRAP, didn't post all my eloquent words!!

    Ok, try this again!

    Ok boys and girls, I finished removing the starter and stuck my flexible magnet down the hole to see what would jump out at me, and this is what I found.

    In all my years of experience, a search of my internal hard drive has come up empty, so I am putting the question out to the

    How to install metal tire tube stems
    by Mitch
    Courtesy John Carter!

    Usually the hobbyist purchases new tubes with the metal stems already installed. If you want to convert your old tubes over or just install the metal stems yourself this may help you out.

    A few Yellowstone and Glacier Natl Park photos
    by tbirdtbird
    60 Dallas club people and 15 Model As just got back from the parks after a 10 day tour.
    The buses are 1937 Whites. The yellow ones are in Yellowstone, the red ones in Glacier. There were over 100 yellow ones in the beginning. After decades, they were falling into disrepair. Ford re-framed and re-powered them, and left the coaches alone for that vintage look. They bear both the White emblem and...
