A blog about my the history, acquisition and operation of my 1911 Model 62 Stanley Steamer.

The wheels are made

The rear wheels are back from Noah Stutzman with fresh wood and look perfect. 


As you may notice the wheel bolts are new. When we disassembled the old wheels we found that the original bolts were in need of replacement. Many had been cross threaded and had heavily rusted shanks. 

  We had the originals copied because they are a non standard design with a high dome and no square under the head like a normal carriage bolt.

 Now off to paint.
