  1. 24 Chrysler tail lamp

    I know it's a bit of a long shot, but does anyone have or know where there might be a tail lamp like this one for sale?
  2. Funny car stories

    I worked at an Oldsmobile dealership in the 80's, in upstate NY. Those "Dear Alert" whistles were pretty popular and we sold lots of them. A lady came into the shop complaining, saying she was sure we had put them on backwards. She had seen several deer along the road the night before and "obviously those whistles were not scaring the deer away, but rather they were calling them in"
  3. felt seals

    thank you to all I'm already talking to George, what a great guy! I like the idea of turning a cutter and using the press, good to know to order F1 felt, I wasn't sure which grade would be the proper one for seals.
  4. felt seals

    Anyone have a good source for felt seals, like the ones used in early cars for Crankshaft seals or rear axles? Every place I find on the web wants to sell you a few thousand pieces Thanks ?
  5. 24 Chrysler transmission question

    yes it appears they have been turning, the hole is where the oil comes in. it lines up with a hole in the gear. I like the hydraulic cylinder shop idea, although not very convenient in my area. Reaming them after they are installed is not a problem, I will polish the shaft and ream them for a nice fit. Should be good for a long time. Thanks to all

  7. I am looking for a source for new countershaft bushings and possibly a new shaft also. Any thoughts?
  8. 1951 Studebaker Engine Woes

    The 51Stude v8 had a fuel pump location up by the oil fill ( I think ?) They later moved it down to a more conventional location. If yours is mounted up high, there was a small shaft that would wear and not give the fuel pump a full stroke. You might ant to check that. I had a customer with a 51, it was a really fun car.. Good Luck
  9. Do I need a pressure regulator

    when I had an electric pump, I used a regulator adjusted to 1 psi. and it worked fine. I am happier now that the Vaccum tank is working and reinstalled Good luck
