Default 1918 10-20 Titan New Project

Howdy all. It has been a while since I've acquired a piece of iron to post in here again. This is my first early piece that's older then 1924. I'm hoping the vast amount of knowledge on this page can help guide and educate me on getting this old girl back up and running. It is loose but has been sitting since 1975. I know its not all correct but hopefully over time I can find the correct pieces to make it correct. The biggest thing I need to find currently are the rod bearings.

There are a few old automotive machine shops that can rebabbit the shells and rebore them. You might want to look into that. Rob

Hopefully it wasn't run dry till it hammered the brass out and made a bad mess of the crankshaft. We have machined up new brass shells like those but it is pricey. There has to be some around somewhere.

When I did mine I machined new rod bearings out of Bronze trued up the crank with a new file and emerystrip and bored the bearings accordingly it works just fine ..

Thanks I'm impressed at how little wear are on them they look in excellent shape. The chains are in excellent condition as well. Gas tank is completely rotted out on the bottom so have to find someone who can reproduce it and also have to find a watertank, right fender, gear guard, the viewing lid for the oiler and a lid for the air cleaner is what I have found so far I need.
