Post subject:  P-3 decelostat set for sale

I have a mostly complete P-3 decelostat set that came off an ex-Santa Fe lunch counter diner in the Los Angeles area.

Includes the following:
3 decelostat axle controllers (4th controller was gone)
3 decelostat retaining rings (4 hole)
2 protection valves
2 release valves
2 pipe brackets
3 decelostat mounting adapters (6 hole round to 4 hole square)
3 axle mounting adapters for Timken grease bearings (adapts Timken grease bearings to accept the 6-hole decelostat mounting adapter, to which the decelostat actually mounts)

All of the above is in the condition it was removed from the car. As far as I can tell, the car last moved in the early 90s. It had been used as a restaurant and we are well into the process of scrapping it.

The axle controllers are complete, not missing any obvious parts, and rotate normally. All three have the tester dial installed.

The pipe brackets and protection/release valves are still assembled together, but the pipe connections have been torch cut to allow for their removal.

Make offer. Call Brad at 818-240-1432 or e-mail to llafro "at" yahoo.com.
