    Brake lights on again!

    Are you sure the MC piston seal is BEHIND the compensating port? If not it will store pressure.
  2. "Safety Siped" Look at a Lester or Lincoln tires. At least the older ones were. I am not sure of the Coker era tires.

    " 1961 VW Beetle dim tail lights"

    Those ceramic fuses corrode to give problems. My 1992 Mercedes had gremlins until I cleaned ALL the fuse ends. Upgrade kits are available up to gold plated versions.

    Dynamo/ generator rewiring

    Changing to 12 volts is not an upgrade. It is an expensive way to stay right where you are now.

    vacuum tank problems

    Stude17 has the answer ! It's the valve seats leaking. Not checked for proper function. But now it is back in the hands of the overhauler. Best wishes unto you......

    Constant Force Spring

    I did forget to mention......WEAR LEATHER GLOVES ! It will slash your hand faster than a blink.

    Constant Force Spring

    Yes, it could be repaired. I would buy that machine a new spring. Retire the old spring. A new spring will come oiled to prevent rusting. It isn't lubricated for use. There is a tool called a "spring winder" used to install the spring safely in the barrel. Otherwise you could well get hurt or ruin the new spring. Clock repair folks have the tool. I have heard of spring suppliers loading a spring for you if you send them the barrel. sometimes........... Be careful. '
  11. I agree , Trim. It has to have a correct top. I too praise or curse the top, and I'm not a trimmer. Hopefully that top guy is in prison today.

    King Seeley fuel gauge

    The top of the gauge glass must be open to atmosphere for the gauge to work.

    King Seeley fuel gauge

    I have worked on four K-S fuel gauges over the years and have never found the liquid to have an odor. I really wonder what you have . Acetylene dibromide is what I remember it being. It has a specific gravity that's critical.

    1903 Cadillac Model A - $150000 Phoenix, AZ

    Phoenix Craigslist? Really? With all the big money auction houses in town the seller opts for Craigslist? Perhaps a scam !

    which one do you most regret missing?

    I was going to say a 1930 Tatra sedan until I saw that 1929 Studebaker Victoria. That car makes me sorry !

    Advice on a Bentley please.

    As if there isn't enough sound advice here already, I suggest reading kda132.com/technical.html The author has much experience with post war RR and Bentley. The articles will open the blindest of eyes to what lies ahead to a buyer. It even includes a prebuy inspection checklist beginning with putting on coveralls ! I maintained my fathers 1951 SD for several years after a body off restoration. Fun to drive to a show, but as Matt states, it's a BLACK HOLE ! I'm so happy it is in Texas now.

    1912 Buick Tire question

    Changing clincher tires has been covered to death on the MTFCA forum. MANY ways to do it . Just Google search "clincher tire change mtfca forum". There is days of reading there with many opinions on what and which is best. Bring enough patience and you will be fine. Tubes? Yes , same size as tire. But which tube stem to use? That is another swamp to wade into ! Best Wishes..............

    Buffalo Wire Wheel Hub / Drum Removal

    I have NO experience with Buffalo wheels, but........it looks like in the last picture of the inside of the drum there is a collar pressed onto the hub. The hub will also be pressed into the drum. I'd use witness marks before removing anything. Also, you do not state what car make or model this wheel is for. That may help greatly to get the right answer.
