1904 Peugeot Type 57 carb

Author: MD Callaghan Saturday, 06 September 2014

Hi. I wonder if you or your readers would know  what was the marque and model of the carb fitted to a 1904 Peugeot Type 57 engine number 5191L ? My friend Jean-Pierre is trying to get this car ready for the London/Brighton run in November and is not sure the carb that came with the car is correct.

Regards Malcolm Callaghan.

question find_1_plus_2_470
Dear Sir or Madam,

I have a question regarding a find that I made a few days ago...

I go metal detecting in the Oxfordshire area. A couple of days ago I found (usually I find coins - medieval, roman- and buttons and scrap metal) a folded peace of metal. I cleaned it up and left it in my flat...until my landlord (an retired antique dealer) saw that peace and asked me if he should straighten it. We took some pictures...and look what came out.

Do you have any idea what that is....obviously a car plaque but what for and which time. I guess pre war!?

Thanks for your help in advance.

Kind regards
Michael Waldher

Mystery Air Cooled Cylinders, Franklin ?

Mystery Air Cooled Cylinders
Hello, A friend who is not computer literate sent me the attached images of three new old stock cylinders which he would like to have identified.  He says that the bores are 3.375" in diameter & as can be seen in the images one cylinder has the word 'Frankland' written in chalk.  Perhaps it is from an air cooled 'Franklin' car?  I am sure that one of your website visitors will be able to identify these items.    

thanks,

John
