    1924 Dodge VIN location

    Bob, don’t tell me Colorado isn’t going to let you license that beautiful green and black speedster! Say it isn’t so.

    Replacing throttle control lever

    Yeah, I had the body off when I removed mine.
  3. Boy, that transmission bears no resemblance to my 32 gear box. Totally different set-up. The free wheeling extension on my unit is the big difference - that’s where my rubber mount attaches. No free wheeling on the 33 that I can see - actually, I take that back. That may be a free wheeling device on the rear, behind the gears. Anyway, it’s nothing like the 32. The 33 mount is much easier to get to.
  4. That’s are definately different than the mount on my 32 DL. I’m having trouble figuring out the orientation from your photographs. Any chance we could get a wider view with trans visible. On my car, I had the motor and transmission out, so removing them was no problem. I know with my car, you absolutely have to support the rear of the motor if you remove the rear mount with the motor in places. Have you checked with The And Now to make sure they can revulcanize your mounts. If your rear mount is mush, I would check the other mounts for condition.

    1920s-30s Buick Hubs

    It appears to be a Buffalo wire wheel hub with the hubcap in place. Note the holes in the hub for the spokes. I assume that’s what’s left of the spare tire bracket on the back.

    Replacing throttle control lever

    Not sure if yours is the same as my 32DL, but my lever and shaft are held on by a Clum switch that fits on the bottom of the shaft. Remove the Clum switch and the lever shaft pulls out from the top.

    Who did ‘57 Better? Ford or Chevy?

    My dad was. GM executive, so talk of Ford or Mopar in our home was discouraged at all times. I was in the GM building with our family the night they introduced the 57 models. When the white cover came off the 57 Chevy convertible, it stopped the show. They may have sold more Fords that yer, but they must have been rust prone or something, because there are a lot more 57 Chevies around these days.

    Radiator full and ready to go.

    First Start Question

    I admit the electrical end of auto restoration is my weakness. So, possibly a dumb question, but when first starting a motor, will you damage the generator if you run the motor without hooking up the generator to the wiring harness. I just want to make sure the motor runs properly and the water pump works before I start hooking everything up under the dash. 1932 Dodge Brothers DL.

    Final Plea For Upholstry Help

    I wasn’t knocking what LeBaron Bonney told me, I have no doubt they can’t get the cloth I need at the moment. I’m going to check in with my buddy Phil Kennedy and see if he can tell what’s on his all original front seat. After this discussion, I don’t think it’s hidem. Probably wire-on or double welt.

    Oil Leak Remedy Sought

    Do you have any idea of the general area where the leaks, are coming from? Did you actually start the motor, or just fill it with oil and wait until the next day, when you discovered the leaks? If you never started the motor, the leaks have to be coming from somewhere below the top of the oil pan, perhaps, as FlatTop suggests, from pinholes in the pan. What make and year of car are we talking about? In my experience, slathering on sealant, rather than finding the source or cause of a leak, is the wrong way to go.

    help 33 Dodge floor board removal help

    My 32 DL also has the double ball setup.

    Final Plea For Upholstry Help

    That’s an optical illusion because you're Looking down on the cord from an angle. It’s consistently the same size on both sides. Now that I look at the photos, it does look like double welt cord more than hidem.

    Final Plea For Upholstry Help

    Spinnyhill, here are some shots of my friend Phil Kennedy's original 32DL front seat. You can see the hidem running along the top edge of the seat all the way down to the floor. The last shot probably shows it the best. You can separate the two sides and see tacks below.

    Brass Era ALF Speedster Powerful and Attractive

    I sure would like to see a side shot of this vehicle. It has a back seat and more area behind the rear seat. It looks great from the front, and my grandkids would love that extra seat, but I wonder if it looks a bit ungainly from the side. Then again, it may look terrific.
