  1. Hi Wayne, did you use the engine? Also could you help me with how the handbrake mechanism on the tail shaft is set up on a right hand drive. Regards Damien?
  2. Hi, I am trying to track down somebody who does carpets and possibly trim kits for my 1966 rambler classic sedan. I am from Australia but happy to search in the States. Any help would be appreciated.
  3. can you get them for the 1928?
  4. I also need one for my 1928 dictator. Where are they being reproduced?
  5. hi, Our family bought a 1928 dictator almost identical to this one. The engine was a GE. We had problems with the engine. It had rusted through near the valve springs internally. I had the opportunity to buy another GE engine and it had the same problems. I would pull the valve cover off the side of the engine and check for any signs of rust up near wear the valve springs sit. You will need a small mirror and a good light to see up there! The casting seems to be very thin there. We are still chasing a good GE engine.
  6. I have tried the email for the GE engine for sale. It doesn't recognise it. Are there any other way of getting in touch with this guy
  7. Thanks to everyone for there advise/help. I think we have successfully worked out a way of getting the engine home
  8. Can I have your email and I will send you mine through that.
  9. It is located in East Northport. It is just the engine. Don't know how the freight company charges as I have not found one that will pick the engine up without being crated.
  10. IN AN EARLIER POST I REQUESTED HELP WITH A 1928 STUDEBAKER DICTATOR ENGINE. I HAVE BEEN SUCCESFUL IN FINDING ONE. BUT I HAVE A SMALL PROBLEM. I LIVE IN AUSTRALIA AND THE ENGINE IS LOCATED IN LONG ISLAND NEW YORK. THE OWNER OF THE ENGINE IS UNABLE TO CRATE THE ENGINE OR DELIVER TO A FREIGHT DEPOT. IF SOMEBODY OUT THERE CAN ASSIST ME IN SOME WAY IT WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED. I HAVE BEEN ABLE TO FIND COURIERS THAT WILL PICK THE ENGINE UP FROM HIS PLACE BUT NOBODY THAT WILL CRATE IT. THEY WONT PICK UP A LOOSE ENGINE. I HAVE GOT A CONTACT IN RAY MINNESOTA THAT WOULD CRATE THE ENGINE AND SHIP TO ME, MY PROBLEM IS GETTING IT TO HIM. IS THERE SOMEBODY THERE THAT WOULD BE INTERESTED IN CRATING IT AND GETTING IT TO A FREIGHT COMPANY? I WOULD PAY FOR YOUR TIME. PLEASE HELP, REGARDS DAMIEN
  11. I have 1928 dictator but the engine block is rusted out. I am looking at buying the engine on this thread. The block itself looks the same despite some differences with mounting auxiliary's. Will this GL block fit my GE? I have to frieghtt it t Australia so I need to be reasonably sure. Thanks. Damien
  12. What about a 29 dictator? There is a guy on long island with an engine for sale. The pictures look the same as mine. I don't want to go to all the cost of shipping it here though and there is some small difference, but it looks identical to me.:confused:
