  1. 31 Nash 6-60 engine pistons

    thank you Bud, I appreciate the info. We are looking at some later Jeep pistons to see if we can make the wrist pin work, they are very close in size
  2. I am working on a 31 Nash L head Six. and looking for new pistons, the bore is 3.125 and will be oversized some. Any suggestions other than the obvious of calling Egge or another custom manufacturer? Im just trying to keep the cost of this project from getting to high. thanks Chris

  7. 24 Model B70 Brake upgrade?

    Nice simple common sense solution. I like that !!!
  8. 24 Model B70 Brake upgrade?

    Ha, I love it There is a old story about the Stanley's. The first car to drive up Mt Washington. NH The story says they tied a tree to the car so they could drive back down. Pretty funny stuff So I have the same External contracting brake on my 25 Stutz, and they work amazingly well when they are not wet. When they are wet, not so much. Perhaps a different material on the bands could improve that, but I would certainly be concerned about a trip thru the mud, sand, and across a few small rivers like they have planned. Zeke is correct, I was hoping to just change to the 29 internal design, but sounds like that might not be so simple.
  9. I have a customer asking to modify, improve , upgrade (or whatever you want to call it) the external contracting brakes on his 24 Chrysler. He would like like to end up with a reliable system that will function well in severe conditions as he is planning a trip that will include water crossings and many miles on gravel roads or even cow paths. I would love to hear a few ideas from the knowledgeable and experienced folks on these forums. Thanks
