  1. Stutz M8 generator price

    Thank you K80896, Kmstrade and Edinmass for the help in sorting out a price. Thank you also Edinmass for thinking of a potential alternate source for a generator if I was stuck. As luck would have it, following your inputs the vendor and I have agreed on a price. Now we only have to rebuild the car around the generator and the restoration will be done! Thanks again, Mark
  2. Stutz M8 generator price

    Thank you! Your help is much appreciated. If anyone else has some experience, please let me know. The unit that came with my car had VW internals, a welded up case, and can't turn the water pump.
  3. Stutz M8 generator price

    I need a generator for a ’29 Stutz M8, and I'm lucky enough to have found one. The gentleman who owns it wants a fair price. I don’t know what a fair price is, and while I have had a guess and made an offer, he is looking for validation. So, gentlemen, could I ask someone to weigh in with an opinion? I would be much obliged. Oh! I hope none of you has a million dollar sense of humor! Thanks! Mark
  4. 1929 STuTZ Blackhawk Differential Lube

    As mentioned above, avoid lube with sulphur in it. The attached picture shows what it can do to a '29 Stutz component.
  5. 341B Radiator Hoses

    Done! Again, I can't thank you enough. Cheers, Mark
  6. 341B Radiator Hoses

    Stunning! I can't thank you enough. I'm presuming that is the inside diameter of the hose, as in the outside diameter of the radiator/head pipe. I'll get onto Restorationstuff.com right away.
  7. 341B Radiator Hoses

    Thank you! That would be very kind of you. One inch sounds about right, although it might be a tad larger. Cheers, Mark
  8. 341B Radiator Hoses

    Yup! That's what the above picture is out of, and well done there. Do you have an idea which hose diameter is right for a 341B?
  9. 341B Radiator Hoses

    I have found the catalogue, but I'm on the road and away from the car. Would any of you kind gentlemen please let me know which is the right hose? It would be very much appreciated, as I could order the items and have them waiting for me when I get back to the car, so I could slap them on. Thanks!
  10. Stutz research

    This is the best history of Robbins I have found. It may not answer your question directly, but it will help. http://www.coachbuilt.com/bui/r/robbins/robbins.htm Here is a quote: "A 1928 issue of Autobody announced: I have seen a B&W picture of the Robbin-Chrome paint finish - somewhere. I seem to remember that it looked blotchy, as in patches about the size of an angular dinner plate that reflected a lot of light, while other patches didn't. I suspect that as one's point of view changed, so did the amount of light reflected from each patch. It looked a bit like techno-camoflauge. It obviously didn't catch on.
  11. 341B Radiator Hoses

    My laptop suffered the Black Screen of Death over the weekend. I had an old parts catalogue on it, and I was about to order some radiator hoses for my '29 Cadillac when it went 'PHUT!'. Before I troll the net again, could someone point me to a good source for the hoses? I'm talking about the two straight hoses that run from the top sides of the radiator right into the two heads. Thanks!

    Thank you very much!
  13. 1929 341B Thermostat

    Email sent! Thanks!
  14. 1929 341B Thermostat

    Would anyone please know where I can find a bellows thermostat for a 1929 341B? Thanks!
  15. My guess would be 1947 or early 1948. There is one car in the picture that is definitely brand new; the Pontiac on the billboard. Date that, and one has the year the photo was taken. Pontiacs didn’t change that much, and when blown up the picture becomes blurry, so it is hard to tell the year. But… Most Pontiacs were sold with the optional rear fender skirts in place, and most advertisements reflect that. In 1947/1948, however, there was a drawn advertisement that showed a convertible with open wheels. Is this the picture in the billboard? If so, it is 1948 car, probably advertised in late '47.
