  1. Selfishly I hope you get another project soon! Dave
  2. You might want to try this site, there is a parts wanted section; http://vcca.org/forum/ubbthreads.php/forum_summary Dave
  3. Thanks for the info.
  4. I should add it normally runs at 160 and when I say hot it is up around 170 to 180. I did do a search and found the heat riser can be a problem but would it run well at times and then not with pin holes in the heat riser tubes? Thanks Dave
  5. My new to me 31 , 60 series Buick 66S, runs great when the outside temp is around 60 and I make no stops. If I stop to get gas and start out again it starts to backfire thru the carb. If I pull the choke out about 1/2 of an inch it smooth's out and runs fine. I can slowly push the choke back in without problems. My guess is it is something heat related. I would appreciate any suggestions. Thanks Dave
  6. I searched facebook for "Antique and Vintage Car Parts" and was not available.
  7. The serial number plate on a 39 Master Deluxe is mounted the cowl , passenger side, under the hood (not on the firewall). The Fisher Body plate is in the same location. More info on the engine number, looking at the engine-fuel pump/distributor side, the stamping is just left of the distributor on a raised pad. Dave
  8. Sounds good. Need to swap Copperhead and shotgun stories. I prefer a 20 ga. Dave
  9. Did you find the engine you are looking for, need to let my friend know to stand down or not.
  10. The serial number was not stamped on the frame of 1939 Chevrolets. As you probably know there is an engine serial number stamped on a pad on the fuel pump side of the motor but it does not relate to the serial number. Dave
  11. grubin, One word of caution, look at the car in person or find someone that knows about structural wood car bodies. You should verify the car has good wood. Doors solid - no movement at the hinges. Check the bottom of the A pillar at the sill. The wood is available from several suppliers but it is a lot of work to replace. Dave
  12. Ken, I just joined the Dixie Chapter this month but have not gone to a meeting or function as yet so I probably won't be of much help. It looks like a good chapter. Where in Atlanta are you located? Dave
  13. There are lots of parts available for 31 Chevrolets. Depending on the model some are harder to find than others but many parts are found everyday on the VCCA forum mentioned above. Check out the Chevrolet parts site The Filling Station. Many VCCA members also have parts, I bet I have 5,000 lbs of 31 Chevy parts. Don't give up too soon. Dave
  14. A friend of mine in the VCCA has a 33 Standard engine he would sell. Down side is it is in California. If you still need one send me a pm and I will pass along his contact info. Dave
  15. Can you post the bearing part number from the box or rim of the bearing? Thanks
