  1. Needed to keep my 32 Pontiac 302 alive, original manifolds have too many cracks to repair. Any leads appreciated.

    1923 Flint Continental 6E, help needed

    I have a 23 Flint with a continental engine, loss of oil pressure and a rod knock means a rebuild is due but I'm having trouble finding any info on this engine anywhere, I'm hoping to order parts but can't find reference to it anywhere. Any information or leads gratefully accepted.

    Flint differential question

    There is a bad oil leak between the pinion section and the rest of the split housing. I've never worked with this type of axle before and I'm wondering if I can simply undo the 4 bolts and remove the pinion section to make a new gasket or will that mess up all the clearances? It runs smooth and quiet at the moment and I don't want to ruin that.

    Stromberg OX2

    Time will tell I guess. It wasn't out of stock when I bought it, I assume that I got the only kit he had.

    Stromberg OX2

    What a great link! And in Australia too, strange that none of my google searches came up with them. I've ordered a rebuild kit from them, should be here in a day or two. Thanks for the tip!

    I'm having carb problems on my 1923 Flint, does anyone have drawings or rebuild instructions for a stromberg OX2?

    30 distributor won't budge

    I've had this problem, the distributor body rusts into the block. I put a pipe wrench on the shaft of the distributor and while holding moderate pressure on the handle gave the body of the pipe wrench a couple of light hammer blows, it was enough to break the dizzy loose.

    1931 four door sport sedan project

    Shame to see it modded, that's a rare car.
  10. Very hard to find, the threads are all a bit thin after 80+ years. You can grind the thread off and cut a new thread one size smaller.

    Any other Flint owners here?

    I've just bought a 1923 Flint and would be interested to hear from other owners.

    1929 Pontiac Damper Repair

    The rear mounts on the 29 provide all the strength and rigidity, the engine block is solid bolted to the chassis on both sides with no rubber or cushioning, if the engine rotates at all then you have bigger problems! There is only one bolt on the front of the engine and as you suggest, it's more a locator than anything.

    FOR SALE - '20s RADIATOR EMBLEM ???pont

    It is worth noting that the emblems were the same in 1926 and 1927 but 1928 was different. The earlier ones are considerable larger than the 28 emblems.

    1929-30 Pontiac thermostat

    I've pulled a few out of parts car engines but never one good enough to use, I've been searching for a NOS one also, not for anywhere near as long as you but for a number of years, no luck at all.

    1929-30 Pontiac thermostat

    I was hoping you'd see this one mate. That's an idea, I might machine up an adapter piece to use a modern thermostat.
