  1. Very good day here at the garage.Thanks to many in this group who stepped up and helped me thru some car problems.Had the carb rebuilt and she fired up on the first try.Because of the condition of the car when I got it I have some wiring questions.Most everything is cut off or pulled out at the dash panel.The ignition setup is different than the book shows.The coil is mounted on the engine.What is the best way to wire an ignition switch to be able to shut the engine off?Today I had to shut down the fuel pump. As always Gary
  2. Looking for replacement carburetor for 1929 Desoto 6 cyl.Any suggestions for a replacement that would work is much appreciated.
  3. Looking to buy new float for Carter BB-1,model 245SD.The one I have has been repaired to many times.Any help would be appreciated.Mine uses pin mount not clip. Gary
  4. Just installed a Airtex E8902 fuel pump on my car.I'm trying to understand the pressure required.Like so many things on this car I need to learn more.How do I know if I would need a regulator? After the engine starts what happens with pump,does it stop once float shuts off flow? Thank you Gary
  5. Looking for replacement fuel pump.
  6. Sometimes I get ahead of myself with problems.I re-installed starter,I had been hooking it up backwards.Now connected the right way engine turns over great.I have been working on this alone,I guess I need to take more care in what I;m doing.
  7. Seems like I can't catch a brake with this car.Had the starter rebuilt.put it in engine turned over several time then nothing.I have very heavy gauge cables now,new 6 volt battery,does the same thing.Tried 12volt to starter nothing.Pulled the starter again and bench tested,spin like crazy.Pulled the plugs,hand cranked no problem.It's a NE Electric starter model 58H.I have checked grounds and cables,everything seems to be good.I am getting very close to giving up.I need the engine to turn over to check spark and so on.
  8. Thanks for the info hwellens.Can you suggest a supplier for the parts?
  9. Finding it hard to find parts for this distributor.Any help?It appears it is Model TBU,type 10849.Very hard to read label.
  10. I am going to look into the bigger cables.I guess I overstated the crank time,more like seconds.I am trying to figure out why no spark.I have 6 volts at coil.
  11. Any suggestions on a GOOD brand of 6 volt batteries.Have bought 2 from TSC and neither one wants to run starter for more than a few minutes.I just had the starter rebuilt and bench test good.I've checked for additional draw but there is none.Both tested low on load test after trying to start engine.I really don't want to convert to 12 volt but if it is a better way to go then I might.Any help would be appreciated.My car is a 1929 Desoto K. 6 cyl.
  12. Finally got the starter back from rebuild and got to see the engine turn over.Now I get no spark,what is the best procedure from here. Thanks Gary.
  13. Taylormade, thank you for the photo of your engine.I checked mine and there is no pipe plug in the head to use for temp gauge.Any other options?
  14. Any info for speedometer Cable.
  15. I need a thermostat gasket and speedometer Cable. Where might I get one? 6 cylinder Silver Dome # on head 408367.
