Hi everyone,

I asked previously if anyone has a picture of an original to see what it looks like.

No luck before, but have had several new members since.

Rim liner for wire wheels, flap for split rims and clincher rims.

Turns out I have been using the terms wrong.  A flap is 7 inch wide heavy duty rubber that holds the tube in the tire.  More for like trucks.  What I needed was a rim liner.  About 3 inch wide, thin rubber to prevent the tube from rubbing on the rim and popping from rust, etc.

Chet I have been searching for a replacement for several months so I am not surprised.  It really is a problem as it is not good practice to use old stretched bolts.  I had less trouble finding rod bolts for my 1908 Locomobile!  I will keep looking too and let you know if I get anywhere.  This is obviously going to be an issue going forward as more and more tired engines need rebuilding. I believe the same bolt was used on the PA and PB rods so locating a replacement will help them also. Thanks again for the help.

Hi Rusty,

This is what I received back from J&M Machine concerning the rod bolts.

Thanks for the e-mail.
I have been out for several days with the stomach flu so I didnít see your e-mail.
We are trying to find a modern replacement for those bolts as naturally all Nos ones are long gone.
Will let you know what we come up with."

Rusty when I know you'll know.  Sorry I guess this is going to be one of those simple things that turns into a big project.  I would guess that they would have to re-tap a standard rod bolt if one exists.  I hope they don't have to change the connecting rods ?  Now you got me worrying.  $$$

Unless I am told it is a definite no, no I plan to use them along with the shocks.  If the ride is too stiff I can always remove them.  I actually made up one of the front dampening springs myself that was missing.  I used an old spring leaf and did a lot of grinding trying not to get things too hot.  Twenty ton press was enough to form the bends.  I used the same outfit you did for a replacement spring and they told me the same thing about not being able to make the dampening springs.  They do a great job and the turn around time is fantastic.
