  1. How much for a pair of new running boards? for a 1931 153 Club Sedan
  2. Hello, I am wondering where I can acquire a complete set of fender bases and mirrors for the series 12b. And possibly curtains. Thank you very much, M. Whitehead
  3. Can you put a 135 (left hand) handbrake in a 1929 130? The 130 had the handbrake on the other side of the transmission. So the question, can you put a left hand one in? How hard is it? The reason being, is putting in a Detroit 4 speed. Thanks, M. Whitehead
  4. Hello, What is the best transmission to be used in place of 1929 Detroit three speed on the 130? Providing hand brake location. The 1932 t81, because of the 2nd to 3rd syncromesh? Or the 1931 t77, because of the compound low (1st) gear? Help would be appreciated. Thanks!
  5. Trust me it was a HUGE pain on the later downdrafts, because you had to take the intake manifold off .all you could do is drop the tube down. You couldn't remove it because of the fire wall. Where as I think you can take the tube out of the car on the S10.
  6. Hi Art. The easiest way to do this is to remove the spark plug wire tube. Take it out by removing the floor boards, and pulling it back.Put the spark tube on a bench or in a vice for this. Attach wire or string to the distributor end of the old wire in the tube. Pull the old wires out. (String or wire through each hole). Put a light Coat of Baby powder in the inside of the tube, or along the new wires. Get rid of the escutcheons. Those go on last. Tie the string or wire, (I used wire) to the spark cables, then wrap the tied ends in electrical tape. Then simply pull each one through, pull 123456 in a bit, and then pull them all through at once. Take off the string and tape. I think you can buy escutcheons from the club. Use Packard spark cables from Restoration Supply. Hope this was Helpful, and I hope to see you in Bakersfield. Happy New Year, Michael Whitehead
  7. Webb should have some. I saw he had a couple this past week.
  8. I believe the 27 11b would have had Nickel plating. To my knowledge 1929 was the year Franklin switched to Chrome
  9. Hi, I am working on a 1928 12a Franklin, where can I find an oil filter for this car? And also how do I take out the distributor?, it has the original 12a distributor.
  10. Not Franklin, the fan was moved to the front on the 1922 10a Franklin
  11. This item is used to oil the valves, it goes in through vacuum. Fill it with Marvel mystery oil
  13. Series 12A or 12B?
  14. This is just series 10 and 11
  15. Hi, the 1928 series 12a, had two levers on the steering wheel, one was headlamp high beam low beam, and the other was the handthrottle
