    1935 Lincoln K Club Sedan

    Matt, I think this car needs an exorcism.

    1948 Tucker #1057 on ebay

    The Carioca, Now that’s a car I’d like to see someone build. I wonder if there are any other drawings of this proposed design.

    Alternative to Penrite for steering box

    ‘I assume you mean corn head grease. What alternative do you recommend?
  4. As I said in the post, they were repaired by Jeff Holzmer. He welded in new metal and reshaped the openings to the correct size.
  5. When working on my drag link, I wasn't having much luck finding NOS parts other than threaded inserts and new internal springs. Then Curti on this site suggested I contact Jeff Holzmer in Woodbury, Minnesota. He replaced the pitman arm balls on several Auburns for Curti and came highly recommended. Since my pitman arm was very similar, if not identical to the Auburn arm, I thought I'd get in touch. He agreed to work on mine and also to repair my damaged drag link. I'm very happy with the work. Here are some before and after photos. The pitman arm before... And after. And the drag link before and after. The other end.

    Damage to my 48 Lincoln

    You seem to be interested in originality, but changed the car to 12 volts? It looks like an older paint job in the first place, so I’m not sure why you think you’re owed a new paint job on the whole car. Maybe I’m being naive, but I can’t imagine taking a car to a shop and let them sit the car outside month after month. You said you took some pictures six month ago - did you not notice it being stored outside at that time? Did you occasionally stop by the shop to check progress and find it sitting outside? I think the shop owes you an explanation and a fix and repaint on the fender. I think you owe yourself a rethink on how you handle repairs to your car in the future.

    The Ressurection of Daphne - a 1932 DL

    My engine rebuilder said it might need adjusting. Not sure why he thought so - I’m giving him a call Monday. I used a new temporary gauge, not the original, to test the oil pressure. I’ll try the original gauge and see what that reads. At least I have too much pressure rather than not enough.

    The Ressurection of Daphne - a 1932 DL

    Is there a gap between the cover and the block? I don’t think mine is screwed all the way in. Any pictures would help.

    The Ressurection of Daphne - a 1932 DL

    Starting and running the engine a few times and some minor problems have cropped up. The oil pressure is running 65 pounds, which I think is too high. Looks like I may have to adjust the pressure relief valve. I found a small oil leak at the bottom of the timing chain cover. I tightened the cover bolts and it seems to have stopped the leak. I certainly hope so, as the thought of having to replace the cover gasket is not something I want to consider. I also found a leak around the pressure relief valve cover - which is more of a screw on domed fitting in the side of the block. This will need some investigating. I’m not sure if there is a gasket involved or just the tightness of the unit being screwed tight into the block is supposed to be sufficient. If I have to adjust the pressure relief valve, I guess I’ll find out as that cover is how you access it.
  10. Externally it looks like the BB on my 1932 Dodge Brothers sedan. Mine is really for a 32 DeSoto, but the two motors are almost identical and it works fine on my car. As Carbking says, without the tag, you just can't tell.

    #12-28 Bolts

    Retapping to 1/4 inch is the obvious answer. There is plenty of meat on the plate, so it should be an easy process. I like to keep things as original as possible, but since most of it is hidden inside the wood block, I'm not going to have a coronary over it. Thanks for all the advice. And I tried all the outlets suggested above with no luck. It's the length that is the problem.

    #12-28 Bolts

    Those are coarse threads #12-24. I need fine thread, #12-28. Thanks for trying!

    #12-28 Bolts

    2.25 would work, but I figured they would be impossible to find. The two inch were just short - just. I may just retap the holes for a 1/4 inch bolt that is easy to find.

    #12-28 Bolts

    The rearmost wooden floorboard. The four bolts along the back are just an inch long, so that was no problem. The two front bolts pass through the floorboard and a wood block spacer before they thread into a tab on the frame. Sometimes you just have to wonder, something this minor ends up holding things up for days.

    #12-28 Bolts

    I’m looking for some #12-28 bolts - either hex head or slotted screw head. My local auto shop has them up to 2 inches.. Naturally, I need 2-1/2” length. I’ve tried Grainger, Amazon and other usual suspects with no luck. I guess this is an odd size. There is a plethora of #10 and 1/4” bolts in all lengths, but the meager supply of #12 resides in a small specialty box with maximum length of 2 inches. Since I only need two, I don’t think having a batch of ten thousand made up in China works for me. Any suggestions?
