    Talk about a "small world". Found out that Cassidy is located 30 minutes from me, and have arranged to see his wheel and rim collection tomorrow. Hubert: Many thanks !

  3. WTB Split Rims

    Viv My car is a speedster which was built sometime during the 1020's, so it is difficult to actually identify the chassis. A friend has stated that the wooden spoke wheels appear to be from a Studebaker, but he is not certain. I have replaced two of the old tires with US Royal 6:00/20 which fit well on the surviving rims. Of special note is that the old tires were actually marked as "truck tires", so that your circlip comment would be appropriate to their design. As mentioned earlier, I will be visiting Hershey next week in the hope of finding a pair. Phil
  4. WTB Split Rims

    Thank you both for the information. In readdressing the specifications, it seems that I have a 20" split rim suitable for a 6:00/20 tire. With any luck I can find them in Hershey.

    Looking for two 21 1/2 x 5 1/5 split rims with the double internal ridge , along with the retaining rings. I am attending Hershey if you are selling at the Meet.
  6. 32 DeSoto SC some questions about the motor.

    Hi As I also drive a 1932 SC (roadster ), the consumption of a quart in 150 miles would not seem to be a problem. As suggested, adding Mystery Oil could benefit the operation of the engine , most specifically as a protectant to the valves. At 80# for your engine, you have reached the zip level. Phil

    My favorite episode was when they described the "revolutionary Flathead design" as being introduced in 1949.
  8. looking for steel skirts for my '41 with no success to date. Should I be concerned with the fit of fiberglass skirts if I choose that route ?

  11. AMMETER TO GENERATOR

    After having my 6 volt generator rebuilt, I am attempting to install a new ammeter, but having no success. The original dash mounted unit is defective, so that I am trying to bypass it . At this point I am connecting the single wire from the generator ( Mopar third brush ) through the ammeter, and then to the dash terminal which connected to the old dash unit.\ Where am I going wrong ?

  12. Newspaper Article says Cars a Good Investment .

    Sounds like the Jag is "a barn find in new condition".
  13. Ron No photo available, but the bracket is 20" high with an adjustable nut on top , and a strap loop on the bottom. The nut tightens a mid point clamp which secures the bracket to an IBeam axle. Snubber is identified as "Gabriel Balloon Snubber ".
  14. Also need the belt material, in addition to the bracket that attaches to the axle.
