|Silver Ghost, series 1800 thru 2600
i.e. 'Wire markers' for Pre-WWII R-R/B Automobiles
WE ARE IN THE PROCESS OF MAKING THESE STYLES AVAILABLE BUT THE DATE OF THEIR AVAILABILY IS UNKNOWN. WE CAN SHARE WITH YOU WHAT WE EXPECT TO REPRODUCE.
Wire marker part numbers for Ghost series 1800 through 2600:
U2195 - Terminal insulator, 1 1/4" long, knurled with male thread at end. These sit atop the flat surface of the distributor cap (Terminal Plate), E1442, style Gc.
E1539 - Terminal insulator cap (instead of U2196) 0.812" x 1.000" long with 9/16-26 internal thread, 7 of Ebonite: numbers 1-6 or the letter 'C'. These screw on top of the U2195/U2198 and accept the ignition wires, style Gk.
U2198 - Terminal insulator, 1 5/16" long, knurled with larger diameter collar at the bottom. These sit atop the flat surface of the distributor cap (Terminal Plate), E1442, but were used only under for the coil wire. We lack a sample of this item to reproduce. If anyone has one and are willing to assist the cause, please contact us. Our future style Ge.
E1416 - Battery terminal insulator, (instead of S475) 0.475" ID x 0.900" long, threaded one end with 3/8" female thread, plug end, flat spot in middle of insulator body for plug number. Is 0.900" just an updated way of saying 7/8" used on S475's?A threaded sleeve over the end of the spark plug wire, style Gh.
E1416a - Magneto terminal insulator (instead of S475a). Used at spark plugs as a sleeve over the spark plug terminal hardware with 1 to 6 stripes around circumference. A threaded sleeve over the end of the spark plug wire, style Gj.
??? - We find no part number or drawing for the insulators at the magneto connections, style Gm.
There are no plans to reproduce the following which were mated to the spark plug markers.
E1418 - Terminal, series 1800-2600, closed ring terminal with male thread, 1 1/4" long.
E3106 - Terminal, series 2300-2600, closed ring terminal with crook and male thread, 1 3/8" long.
Information on Ghost wire markers is difficult to come by. The drawing CD provides no GA or LOP 'Wire Fitting' information. The parts book #4 issued August 1914 for chassis series 1700 to 2600 inclusive, pages 108-109, gives us part numbers, but we lack images of its pages. (The number 4 comes from this book's marking in the Hunt House archives.)
The part numbers are given in the summary above. Were the new numbers for styles Gh, Gj, Gk & Gm really that much different from the earlier Ga, Gb, Gd & Gf or was R-R just updating all the marker drawings to have 'E' series part numbers?
