    1930's floor board exterior wood

    Hi guys The Australian Dodges in this area have 3 boards(3/4 inch thick) that are butted together and sit in 2 channels that go from the floor up to the firewall at about 40 deg. There is a couple of cutouts in the top one for the pedals to operate, and then it was all carpeted, and had a large rubber plate around the pedals , and steering column. When I say the boards were butted together, they did have a half overlap groove in each edge to stop moisture from getting in, which also stops any board from sagging . Australia used boards in their floors, but I believe US cars used plywood, is this correct? regards Kevin BC

    1930 Dodge DD, DC - Brake adjusting

    Spinneyhill You are right about the wire wheels, it would make it easier with the wires off, would give you more room to work around the backing plate, makes me look more forward to the day when I have to do the brakes on my DC Tourer, but that's a long way off yet. regards Kevin BC
  6. When adjusting1930 Dodge DC DD brakes, and possibly other models, on the rear, the front adj nut lines up with the spring shackle, not enough room to get a standard socket in, and then you cant hold the bolt to do the nut up anyway. I have found a spanner that makes the job easier. Called a "Crowsfoot " spanner it is as the picture shows a cutoff open ender, with a 3/8 socket extension hole. As seen fits inside the backing plate neatly & bolt can be held with large screwdriver whilst nut is done up, taking lots of frustration away.Hope this idea makes it easier for someone else out there who has probally uttered profanities when trying to adjust the brakes of this era Mopars Kevin BC
  7. Just a reply to "Dave 24" regards bending taillight stalk for RHS. For any others that may want to add a 2nd taillight, I added a 2nd to my 1930 DC Dodge here in Australia, by getting an American stalk which is bent the other way to the Aus one, problem solved . You guys in the US would need an Aussie stalk. Maybe we can send some Dodge steel back your way Kevin BC

    Are 1931 pinion seals replaceable?

    Keiser Looks like maok has you on the right track. It would be possible to take out the seal, as Spinneyhill suggests, but I tried that & finished up buckling the flange ,being heavy handed as the seal was hard to shift after all these years. The leather in the seals I got hold of were in excellent condition, but if they haven't been stored correctly they could be dried out. Try to check if they are wrapped in greaseproof paper still, if you go down that path. Mine came from " AA Bearing Company" in Melbourne, if you want to check them out, very good people (Denis is his name). I have done business with him for my DC, for G/box bearings Steering box bearings & cones, pinion seals, rear wheel seals. Kevin BC Kevin BC

    Keiser 31. There is a pinion seal on EBAY that says fits Dodge 30-33. It is the same as my 1930 DC dodge pinion seal, so I'm presuming it will fit your car. If you don't have any luck in the states I can give you a contact in Melbourne that recently supplied me with 2 new ones. I" ll dig out the spare one & get you a number if you like. Kevin BC

    1939 Dodge D11 gas guage inop

    Hi guys For what it is worth. My gauge was very frustrating for a long time. I'm also a tech of 40+ years, and it baffled me for 6 months or more I reckon Don't know if your gauge is the same as my 1930 DC with 2 coils , but if it is then when you have the gauge out of the car bench testing it then the case of the gauge has to be earthed to the power supply, as the second coil is hooked up to earth or the case of the gauge, and if you just connect to the terminals on the gauge then the 2nd coil is open circuit, (which if I remember correctly gives you either F or E) so you would also have to make sure the gauge is well earthed when in the car.??. You can see my type of gauge in a Dykes manual on page 652 AC type. Another thing I found was that the tank from full to empty did not use the whole range of resistance, mine being up to 130ohms, ,and I could get it to work out of the tank but not in the tank. it was either F or E. After a lot of cog adjusting I have been able to find a medium using about 50ohms where Empty is Empty, and a 1/2 F tank is around the middle & the F reading is ??? which I guess does not have to be real accurate. E is the critical factor Good luck regards Kevin BC
  12. Guys I had the same problem with my brakes on my 1930 DC. What I did was cut a slot in the end of the adjusting bolt where the nut fits. This then allows one to unlock the bolt and turn it with a large screwdriver from the outside & it also allows one to hold the adjuster bolt in place when tightening the nut on the adjuster ensuring the gap from the drum to the lining stays correct, as I found you get the measurement all correct, and when you tighten the nut the adjuster cam can turn as you tighten.

  13. I just want to promote a supplier that went out of his way to supply me with 2 head gaskets for my 30 DC Dodge. we had a mix up in supply, and when I contacted him, be it I was a little cross, he went out of his way to get the correct head gaskets to me, and he had the new gaskets in Australia within 7 days, just about a miracle for US to Aus. Not only did he get them here , but told me to keep the incorrect gaskets & sell them locally Jude from "Obsolete Auto Wholesale of VALLC" is the man concerned. They appear to have a good supply of bits & pieces for the Old car people, so check his wares out, as "Good Service with Supply" is what we would always like to see. Kevin BC
