1917 OWEN-MAGNETIC REPAIR


Docents Jerry Mustard and Jim Movius have been hard at work on the large resistor from our 1917 Owen-Magnetic. They researched many hours and came up with a solution to duplicate what was original on the car. Upon removing the wire from the ceramic center, of course the ceramic center fell into many pieces, creating a great puzzle that we all (Ron Allen, Rick Larrick, Jerry, Jim and myself),  had fun putting back together again. After hearing comments from Rick ("Boy, that glue does get hot!") and lots of "Ooops!" and sticky fingers, we finally got it all repaired and put on the car. Now its a matter of getting the time to go through the fuel system and really check the car over before we fire it up for a test drive. More to come at a later date on the final results.
