WANTED:

1920 Seagrave Suburbanite Clutch Cage or Basket or whatever else you might hear it called (3-27-16)

I have a 1926 Seagraves Suburbanite Model 6B: My truck has the smaller six cylinder gas Continental “Red Seal” industrial type motor.

I desperately need the following item: …  Clutch Cage or Basket or whatever else you might hear it called.

This is the one piece metal cylindrical piece that bolts directly to the rear of the flywheel.  It is hollow and open to the rear.  It is horizontally slotted all the way around its internal surface.  The Brown-Lipe Model 30 Transmission mounts a pack of five very fine toothed metal centrifugal clutches on its front nose gear which spin out and engage in the horizontal slots inside the Clutch cage thereby completing the drive line.

Almost all of the early Suburbanites used the same Continental 6B Red Seal motor, clutch parts and transmission.  If anyone has one of these clutch cages (and/or a clutch pack) they can part with, I would be extremely grateful and will pay a premium, but fair, price for it or for information leading to my purchase of same.

I would also be very grateful for any information pertaining to any early 1920s Suburbanite parts trucks, regardless of where they are located and regardless of what state of completeness or condition they are in.

Thank you, Jim Dent  Email or 859-575-4444
