  2. Pierce-Arrow Series 80 Parts Search

    Sorry, but that isn't it; I have a pic I will try to post that shows it. thanks!
  3. Vendor Issue

    This is what I think. I haven't a offered a cross word in any communication but they discuss a two week turnaround on their web site. That certainly hasn't been my experience.
  4. Vendor Issue

    Plane trip to CA. When I get time I will do it as I need to go visit/ check on my College Student anyway. just be careful sending shocks Out West...
  5. Vendor Issue

    I understand. This vendor seems reputable and I am not willing to harm them but I need my parts back and they won't answer the phone. I was hoping to learn if I should be more patient or forget it and move on. I would not ask someone to go to the vendor or otherwise intervene.
  6. Hi, I have a Pierce-Arrow which was bought out of this museum circa 1986. This is about the time the founder of the museum, Ralph Space, passed away. Does anyone know anything about this? The museum have no knowledge of history earlier than this, and say no cars have been sold from the museum since then.
  7. I need a few misc parts: interior wood vanity on either side of the rear seat for the 5 passenger coach; windshield anti-rattle latches (the half that fastens on the body pillar on each side with three screws); two of the aluminum clamps for the Balcrank tubular steel rear bumpers which were a common accessory of the time. Anyone has something available, just let me know. Thanks!
  8. Hi, if your Car from the 1920s has Balcrank accessory tubular steel bumpers, you might be interested to know the manufacturer is still in business. They now make dispensers for lube oil and related automotive fluids, for service stations, quick-lube shops, etc. but alas! no bumpers. I need a couple of parts for my bumpers: there are two aluminum clamps on each side of the rear bumpers; these will have "BALCRANK" stamped on them if anyone has one or two to offer I am interested.
  9. sleeve valve engines

    Love sleeve-valve engines! There are quite a few YouTube videos explain operation, and one series in particular shows a Peter Brotherhood industrial Diesel being rebuilt and started/run in the UK. AS I recall, Part 16 is a detailed explanation of the motion of the single sleeve. There are even hobbyists who convert lawnmower engines to sleeve operation. Fascinating!
  10. Vendor Issue

    Hi, is it possible that someone could assist in sorting out an issue with a vendor/repair shop? I would at least like to have my parts back; I have paid and been patient but I am about at the end. Please advise.
  11. Series 80 Carburetor Question

    Stale topic, but: my '27 Series 80 had a Carter BB updraft on it when I bought it. It starts easily and runs fine and the carb looks as if it belongs there so I am leaving it for now. I understand the best thing Pierce ever did was stop making their own carburetors anyway. Don't know from experience; just sayin'.
  12. Hi, I have become a new Model T owner (I certainly waited long enough!). Yesterday it did something strange. I was turning it around and apparently I turned the steering wheel too far and it started turning the wheels opposite the way intended. I realized what was happening and turned the steering wheel back and all was normal as before. This T is in great shape and runs/drives very well. Please advise.
  13. Great Thread; I sniffed the steering wheel in my '51 Buick, and it does stink! I never noticed it before. It's the deluxe with the clearish plastic steering wheel and chrome horn ring. It's cracked, also. I've owned it since about 1974. You can't get anything to last...
  14. INTERIOR RESTORATION COLORS

    Gosh, that is pretty and classy, too.
