  9. Vague 1927 Dodge Touring Steering

    Stewart, If you can post a photo of your steering box .Bloo is right in what he says and I think that you have a Gemmer box in your car There are improvements that can be made to stop oil leaks and modern thrust bearings too I have done a couple now and the setting up can be fiddly From memory mine (on a 2249 Senior) has about 3/8" at straight ahead and about 1 1/4"at each lock If I can help with advice just holler Ron
  10. Water pump packing specs

    That's a bit hard to do BG as the Standard 6 are 6 volt system
  11. Any ticking time bombs on these old Dodges?

    Hello David,The entire DB various models of the late 20s have what we call the Pot Meal Curse, In all reality the metal was inferior and this problem was NOT only a DB one. The whole of the Automotive industry was affected all the way up to high end cars The parts on the DB Fast 4, Standard, Victory and Senior that are affected are The Distributor as Taylormade mentioned The ends of both the starter and generator and the main frame in the speedometer. This does not make the DBs a car to avoid by any means. they were a very well designed and engineered car Good luck with your car and I sincerely hope that you have many years of enjoyment with it

  15. Grease / Oil for Steering Box

    I have the Penrite Lube in the steering box of my Senior and to fill the box I used a grease gun No mess No leaks although I must say that when I reconditioned the box I fitted modern lip seals to the lower part of the box and also on the sector shaft.
