    1929 Lasalle 20” disc wheel

    My 29 Chevrolet has 20" x 3" disc wheel rims. They have four Jaxon hold down clamps. There is also four small tapered pads that keep the rim snug on the disc wheel. Find out the width of your other rims and their configuration. There are other 20" rims from other car manufacturers. For instance I have a 20" rim that came with my car I use for a living history display. It has two ridges inside the rim where it mounts on the wheel. One ridge is notched to fit over the mounting bolts on the wheel. I use it to show how to change a tire with a rim spreader. I think it is from a Chrysler. Send me a PM, I may have a lead from a fellow who has a 29 LaSalle coupe.

    antique BEACON LIGHTHOUSE Radiator Temperature Gauge

    I like it, the logo for my business card is a lighthouse I played in as a kid. Look up Coquille River Light on the Oregon coast.

    1930 Chevy Coupe Head

    You do not say what problem your cylinder head has. As you are finding out those are getting hard to find, and are not being recast as many Ford parts are. There are places that can repair cracks, or whatever you may have. Not cheap, but it works. They literally cut it open, weld up both sides and then weld the pieces back together. If it is just seats or guides those are readily available. I own a 29 Chev coupe which has a slightly different head from the 30/31. You might post your want on the parts wanted forum at VCCA.org as well to see if you can track one down. Send me an email at beaconb3@gmail.com Art

    1923 Flint Continental 6E, help needed

    There was a nicely restored Flint at the Durant meet in Modesto CA last September. It was a very big car. You might try to contact the San Francisco region DMAC.

    6-17 Delux Coupe

    The 1930 Durannt 6-17 coupe is nearing completion and the body man drove it today. A question has come up about the trunk. This car has dual side mounts and had a potters trunk. How was it held onto the rack? was it held down with rivitted leather straps? Did the straps go all the way over the top? Was there a buckle in each strap? Does anyone have a picture they can e-mail? We have two weeks until the Forest Grove Concours to get it finished.

    1931 devaux coupe

    Is the horn you found a very ornate fillagree pancake type? Generally coupes did not have dome lights. The 6-17 Durant I have been helping to restore did not have a dome light. Does your DeVaux have the "double high" transmission?
  7. I agree modern tread design has a great improvement over previous versions I thought about doing it on my 29 Chev with no shock absorbers. They ride a little better and do help in stopping distance. This was the last year of the rebound plates. In the end I have not done it.

    18" split rims x2

    I have been told by a 30 Marquette owner that the 30 Olds have the same wheels. So these rims may be the same style you are looking for. They are in pretty good shape.

    18" split rims x2

    I have 2 rims I would let go, they are off of a Marquette. Not sure of the year but they are 18". If interested let me know. Art
  11. I have one but somewhat promised it to a fellow in Beaverton OR. This is off of a 28 model 72 Town Sedan parts car. Very uncommon item since many of the cars had the spares on the rear. The Town Sedan was the only model from the factory with side-mount spares. Other models could be ORDERED with side-mount spares, or wire wheels. Out of curiosity is your roadster a Fisher bodied car? Most if not all of the closed body model 72s were made by Fisher Body Co.

    Gas tank strap ideas

    If this is for the car in your avitar, remember now that you have effectively isolated your tank you will have to put some sort of a ground strap on it.

    1926 Chrysler windshield wiper motor

    A lot of Trico wipers from that era should fit. Do you have the cast pot metal base that mounts against the body? If not measure the distance between the screw holes to have a starting point.

    '27 sedan roof replacement

    Hello Bob, Up until the model 75 of 1929 Fisher supplied many if not most of the bodies for Chrysler. Get a copy of the Fisher Body manual from The Filling Station in Lebanon OR. It will give you some much needed tips. GM had aquired the remainder of Fisher in 1926 and made the announcement that after 1928 they would no longer make bodies for non GM firms. Our model 1928 model 72 coupe has the Fisher badge but our model 72 town sedan parts car does not.. I think they were slightly modified from a sedan at the Chrysler plant and so it does not even have the screw holes in the body for the cowl badge. The cowl looks identical so I think Fisher made the wood for it as well. Someone else would know but I think the 29 Chrysler cars are Mostly Hayes bodied cars. For GM the open cars were made by each seperate division. Did Chrysler do the same?
  15. Probably done by now since it was June of last year but did you pull the shaft all the way out (lights on position) before you pushed down on the spring loaded plunger on top of the switch?
