Re: Help Getting It Running

Thanks. Car is in Pittsburgh. If I get it running, it will probably end up in FL. Then the chapter in Clermont will be in order.

Help Getting It Running

I have a 1923 coupe. It has not run in 30 years. Anyone know someone in Pittsburgh area who can get it running? Do not want it restored. Want to get it running as is. Thanks in advance.

Brake Adjusting Wedge

On one wheel, the brake adjusting wedge has to be all the way down before I can get a drag. Do not think it should be that way. Where to look? Suggestions?
