WW1 finds and discoveries


Recommended Posts

Yes Gordon, I do have both front and rear "original" engine mounting cross braces.  This version of the four cylinder Locomobile engine was surely the most advanced with , five main bearings, long 6" stroke, full pressure oiling and the trademark manganese bronze crankcase.

We had a trip out to East Yorkshire today and collected this 1908 Singer. It is believed to have been converted to a lorry for war work in Aberdeenshire during WWI but we only have documentation going

A wartime period Velie has turned up in Lithuania of all places. It looks to be in good condition but the owner thinks it is a White apparently. Many of these US built trucks were used by the French a

I was given these wheels. The rubber is held onto the rims with a steel band in the center. Outside diameter is about 730mm and width 100mm. The centers have been cut out many years ago. Anyone recognize from what vehicle they might be?

Any ideas about that one? Does A.B.C. refer to ABC Motors Limited (All British Company) of Hersham, Surrey? By the way it looks, must be WW1 or older? And from what vehicle, a car or truck? Thanks!

Surely an British/European hub mounted Odometer as it is KM and not miles.  This is most likely an aftermarket item sold to many manufacturers to be used on a wide variety of trucks or automobiles.  What is shown on the mounting flange?  Is it mounted with male or female threads?  What does the underside look like?  Is the trigger mechanism complete and functional?

This is a nice piece to mount to someones rig.

Hello Ted,

If you get a chance to get close to this odometer, try to get another picture showing the bottom side.  If not, we can only be happy that we have seen your pictures.  Good Luck...
