  1. I am looking for some wheel retaining bolts and nuts for my 29 Pontiac. Picture attached of one. The threads on mine are pretty thin and I would like to replace them all if possible. Need 16 total but any at all would help. Thanks in advance!
  2. Thanks Reid. I knew you would come to my rescue! I do have the correct horn and all the wiring is good (complete new harness). I will tear it apart sometime soon and see what I can do with it. I finally have the engine up and running. Starts & runs fabulous! Sounds real strong. Just need to get the gas tank cleaned out and then it will be time to take a test drive down the driveway. Just running it off of a gallon fuel can on the floor right now. As always, Thank You for everything!
  3. Welcome to the forum. You will find out that TinIndian is the man on here for the older Pontiacs. Just a wealth of knowledge. He has helped me immensely on my 1929. Post pictures of your car when you can. Love seeing the older ones.
  4. Does anyone know where I can get my 1929 Pontiac horn rebuilt? It somewhat attempts to work but not very good. I have ruled out a wiring problem. Or does anyone have a good one for sale? Thanks!
  5. Hi Reid. Thank You for your response. I knew that you would be the one to know what to use. The leak was around the rear of the crank. They installed the wooden wedges and that did not help any. I did not see the engine when they had it opened up but from what I understand there is somewhat of a groove near the rear of the crank. They installed a seal from a small block chevy there but it did not work because there was not a "lip" to keep it from sliding up the crank towards the center of the engine. So from what I understand, they machined a "lip" out of a piece of steel and installed it around the rear of the crank thus making a true groove for the small block chevy seal to set in. They say they have ran it for 30 minutes and it has not leaked. So hopefully it is good. Cannot go pick it up until next week because of prior commitments.
  6. Finally getting the engine back from the machine shop so we are getting closer to being back on the road. What weight of oil is used in the transmission AND the rear end?? I assume it would be 80-90 weight but thought I would ask first. Thanks!
  7. Well the machine shop installed the wooden seals and it did not stop the leak. Of course I know it is next to impossible to diagnose an engine leak when you cannot see the engine but does anyone have any other ideas??

  9. I thought about the rope but my shop manual doesn't give any info. I do not have a service manual.
  10. Kornkurt---I would guess that they do not. Do you have any more information on this or pictures so I can show them??
  11. I am having the engine rebuilt in my 1929 Pontiac by the local machine shop. Everything has went pretty smoothly except they have an oil leak they are not for sure on how to fix. They have the engine running and probably have about 2 hours run time on it so far. There is an oil leak between the rear of the crank and the block. There originally is no gasket there. They say it is made to drain the oil from that area back down into the pan. We assume they always have leaked some because of the design but they are not comfortable letting it leave because of the size of the leak. Concerns with getting oil on the clutch etc. Does anyone have any suggestions on a fix?? Thank You for your help!

  13. I have figured it out. Thanks.
  14. I am installing a new wiring harness in my 29 Pontiac. When I was removing the horn button it all fell apart before I had a chance to see which order all the pieces go in. I am positive I have all the pieces that came out of there. Can someone tell me which order they should be reassembled in. I know the big one with the 3 tabs goes over the nut on the steering column. What goes next??? Thank You for any help you can provide.
  15. vintagecarb.com is where I got the carb for my 29. They are very good to deal with and they have a huge inventory.
