Re: Loose window crank and door latch

There was a change in the window regulator shafts that the handle attaches to. Shafts on 28/29 & maybe early 1930 cars had a slot cut in the end of the shaft. When the handle was installed, the set...

Re: Some Progress has been made

Way cool guys. Progress indeed. The hot rod black looks great. No better base than DP 90. Love the radiator cap ornament. This brings back the good old days of high school hot rods. We thought they...

Re: Are most repro parts too small?

Re: Poor braking

Read and re-read what Kurt in NJ said. The 15 degrees forward needs to be when all the slack is gone pushing the front brake levers rearward. If there is still slack in the lever at 15 degrees, the...

Re: Rebuilding my generator...

You don't have to remove the bearing. The felt seal goes in front of the bearing. It is sandwiched between the wave washer mentioned before and the bearing retainer. The felt seal actually originally...

Re: Is Cartouche still in business?

As reported, Cartouche is owned by Mac's and always has been. The corporate owner of both is Eckler's. If you have bought Cartouche before, and have been satisfied, the quality remains the same. So,...

Re: Can't get engine started after changing timing gear

Re: Steel timing gear destroyed

Timing gears often get chewed up by lack of lubrication to the distributor. Eventually, the distributor shaft seizes up. With pressure still on the system, the timing gear (cam gear) becomes the path...

Re: Inside Carb

No chunk missing. This is the way the venturi on a Tillotson carb is formed. But you do have a good deal of varnish and gunk inside the carb. Looks like the car was left unused for some periods of...

Re: pedal shaft

OK, the first thing to be concerned with is the overall condition of the pedals. The bushings are most likely "shot" but how badly? If at least 1/3 of the bushing "shell" is missing, have the pedal...

Re: Issue: Generator-to-Alternator Conversion

Re: Zenith carb

Re: Radiator shell mounting flange distance

That's a strange place for a stress crack. They usually crack at the bottom directly underneath the crank cover. If it's an original shell, it's possible it was restored at some time and there might...

Re: Wiring Harness 28-29 versus 30-31

The basic difference, as someone mentioned earlier, is the location of the stoplight switch, necessitating different lengths of wiring on the leads that go each switch. The 28/29 stoplight switch...
