Gas Engine Magazine V31_I10_Oct_1996 replica below

This replica is built of similar materials
as the original. The same technology, machine and fabrication methods of the late 1800s were
used, resulting in a vehicle that runs, looks, and sounds like the real antique
it represents. The single cylinder engine consists of two gray iron castings, one for the
cylinder and the other for the main bearing support.

The cylinder bore is 4' and the stroke
is 7', resulting in a total of 106 cubic inches of cylinder displacement. The
carburetor is a modified brass valve with a venturi, main jet, needle valve and choke plate.
The ignition is generated from a battery and buzz coil under the seat.
The engine rpm is controlled by advancing or retarding the spark at the timer,
which is actuated by the exhaust valve cam, 30 degree retard to 40 degree
advance results in 300 to 1100 rpm range respectively. The intake valve is of the atmospheric
or'automatic' type. The gas tank holds two gallons and the water tank holds three
gallons. Both are made of copper, riveted and soldered. The frame is made of 1 x angle
iron and all joints are cold riveted. The power transmission is via flat belt
primary, also serving as the clutch, then to the three-speed transmission also having
reverse, then finally to the drive axle by #50 chain. The wheels are of artillery type
and made in the Amish wheel factory at Holmesville, Ohio.
Steering is by a tiller with king pins and tie rods at the spindles.
The brakes are internal expanding mechanical working on the counter shaft.

BRIMFIELD –
When Richard M. Stevens brings his replica of the 1893 Duryea
automobile to Hitchcock Academy’s antique auto show Saturday
he will be able to speak not only about history
and cars, which are the feature of the show, but about the various crafts he had to learn to make what he
calls his original copy of the first gasoline powered vehicle made in America.

“I had to teach myself eight crafts by interviewing
blacksmiths, wheelwrights, carriage makers, machinists, welders, upholsterers, foundry workers and pattern makers,”
Stevens said. Proceeds will be used to help maintain the 156-year-old Hitchcock building where most of the academy programs are offered. Stevens’ Duryea replica is on exhibit at the Museum of Springfield History but will be trucked out for the occasion. Stevens will give a talk about how and why he built the vehicle in 1993 and will start it up after the talk and give it a short ride at its speed of 3 miles per hour. His motivation for building the replica came as the original car’s centennial anniversary approached and he realized after doing some research about its creator, J. Frank Duryea, that there was no copy around the city where it was made. Having worked with automobiles for decades and having turned out some muscle cars, Stevens went on a quest which led to finding the original in care of the Smithsonian Institute and to speaking with the person who had restored it.
