    Thanks chistech,the hose has 5/8 shaft and a 1 1/16 outer diameter,so that would give it about 1/4 inch wall thickness by 4 inch’s long I believe your right about needing to be reinforced,,in the mean time I’m going to sort out the electrical and the oil and fuel lines,has anyone here used cunifuer tubing,in thinking about using it for the oil and fuel lines under the hood,I’ve been told when it’s polished it’s not real brute looks clean any thoughts, Thanks. Dave

    thanks for all the help,i measured the shaft its 5/8 diameter,the couplings I got said 1 1/16 outside diameter by approx. 4 inchs long,i noticed restoration supply has something with those measurements but ill have to call them to see if it has a reinforcement in the hose,im going to go threw the parts again this weekend and try sorting everything out,they said the car had been started since the engine was rebuilt but from what I can see it has not been started,the fuel lines are not connected the oil lines aren't even on the engine,the starter button has not been connected,so many things tell me its not been started,i believe ill get everything connected as far as oil lines and electrical lines,i noticed they've put and electric fuel on with a block off plate so im going to try and fine a fuel pump and maybe just use the electric pump for a backup,once I get it running and sorted out I can start getting it ready for paint ,upholstery and a top,the dash and the lower window frames look like they where wood grained at one time,most of the devauxs ive seen have a black dash so ill have to research it real good to find out whats original, thanks for all the help dave

    Thanks for looking a sell,the horn is Avery ornate pancake horn,the dome light I don’t know if it originally had one or not,,I have the original headliner put away in a bag I will get it out and check it,the wood in the roof is cutout for a dome light but who knows,,the trans I’ve never heard of a double high,I haven’t been under it yet but I don’t believe it has free wheeling, Dave
  10. be real careful,the oil pump pickup falls off of chevy oil pumps,if the light goes out then that's not the problem,did you run it low on oil,if so you may have an air bubble in the line,if not then start checking the sender for the oil pressure (oil prassurs switch+ I believe on a big block chevy its either just above the oil filter or beside the distributor,either way good luck, dave

    Phello all. Went thru more boxes today found the original crank hole cover and the original grille shell emblem!also a repro emblem,the original horn is there this is the first original horn I’ve seen,I’d like to put trUmpett horns. On this one but I can use it on my other 31 also found the taillight not in to good of shape but it’s there,there are also to dome lights I don’t know which is original but there both odd so either will work, also found the original horn button thanks for looking and if anyone has any suggestions I’d love to hear them. Thanks Dave

    Hello everyone. Still trying to sort threw things found a New gasket set from Olsen’s,found a new y n z wiring harness found a couple of taillights but there both wrong neither one was a nacho simsonite,in wrapped the bumpers from the plater,the rear is beautiful the front al,though it’s nice it’s the wrong one,I believe it’s 29 or 30 Chevy double bar,I’ll post pics to see if anyone can identify it and use it,the devaux takes a single bar in the front identical to 32 Chevy so should be easier to find a Chevy bumper than a devaux,the trunk rack is missing they Geri rigged a piece of plywood to the rack brackets and set a trunk on it,will keep going threw things and see what turns up,thanks for lookin Dave
