Re: Is it common for radiator hoses to do this?...

Just a wild guess, yes that would be very common....after they get about 60 years old

Re: 1934 roadster dash

Re: 1940 for turn light bulbs 12 volt

When I do that sort of conversion, I change the sockets to the offset pins. Reason is, those sockets also have a guide for the fiber wire base so it can not move when you twist the bulb in place. If...

Re: 1934 roadster dash

Sedan dash's have been modified to fit an open car if one has some fabricating skills. Since the flange that mounts to the cowl is pretty basic, its not that big of a project...I think. Elvis100 has...

Re: Speaking of engines

Well, I am no expert, but the 2 oil ports on the rod journals is an 8ba crank, no? and no photo of a "magneto" , which would be worth some dough. I'd say he is one zero off market value

Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck

A good tig welder can repair those cracks without disturbing too much of the old girls hyde. Only a little touch up near the weld if he goes slow and allows cooling. Should be unnoticeable on the...

Re: Machine later gears for 1934 axle

I did it about 5 years ago. Local crank grinder did the pinion for 50 bucks, then I did the drive shaft myself. The ring gear tips do not always have to be trimmed, mine did not, but some do. Only...

Is there a vent on the bottom, front of the oil pan? (pre 35 no vent), and If you can see a part number on the front water outlets, that may put a year on them anyway
