  1. 1929 Chevrolet coupe

    As mentioned there would have been an oil separator/crankcase breather in that hole with a pipe to the air cleaner mounted to the carb. Without it you will have a buildup of gasses in the block especially if you have the early top pan with no vent holes. Finding these three parts can be very difficult and expensive if you do. By the way the correct air cleaner only fits the original Carter carbs. As this seems to be an early car it would have had a Carter 125S carb that has the short fat accelerator pump. You can use the later 136S or 150S carbs with the long accel pump but they are not 100% accurate. If interested I can check as I may have these parts available as well as a NOS 150S Carter carb. I also have various 136S carbs that need rebuilding. Also with the fuel pump if it does not have the correct lever to engage the cam there could be fuel delivery issues to the carb or eventual damage to the cam lobe. It should be verified same as the proper pump. Another thing you have the wrong cap on the oil filler tube.

    If you have drawings do you need the wood bows made?
  3. 1929 Chev 194 push rod cover Question

    If this is the early version ( which the rocker cover indicates having no vents) there should be no sealing around the spark plug holes. They are open for venting. On the other side of the engine there should have been an oil separator just ahead of the bellhousing with a pipe that goes to the carb. Air was sucked through the here from the crankcase to remove blow by gasses. If you seal the spark plug holes then the crankcase won't vent. Later in 29 Chev changed to a vented rocker cover and the small pipe from the carb went to the oil filler tube further ahead on the block.
  4. I have an old collection of parts my father had squirreled away that I am showcasing on a Facebook page titled "Antique and Vintage Car Parts". The page can be viewed without having a facebook account. Too many to list or picture here. Small sample of pictures here.
  5. wooden bodies

    If you have pictures of the style you want and dimensions of space they fit into then I am sure seats could be made.
  6. Star car

    Have a look at my facebook page "Automotive Wood Bodies" as I am presently rebuilding a 1928 Durant. Your wood will be similar and I have many pictures there. Regards
  7. 1929-1930 Chevy hot air heater

    Not selling my books but could scan the pages. All parts are listed. So far looking for 30+ years I have not yet come across any parts for these heaters. I have not yet even seen one on a car and I live in a city where these cars were manufactured. Regards,
  8. 1929-1930 Chevy hot air heater

    I have a 1929 only and a 1929/30 parts book and they have illustrations of the systems. There was a first one in early 29 and a later system that differs slightly. Both fitted around the exhaust pipe as you describe.
  9. Wanted ignition switch

    The number would be the key that fits the switch.

    Not to put a damper on your quest but if you poll the Vintage Chev Club most all will advise you won't find one and if you did it would probably cost more then you spent on your car. I have only heard of one or two people who have them on cars during the last 30 years or so. Best of luck.

  12. 1935 1936 Ford Radio

    What is pictured is all I have. Main radio looks complete. The radio head is missing the dial face so restoration is in order. $120.00 US plus shipping.
  13. A nice functional rim tool. Not perfect but will make removing and installing tires easier on split rims. This fits from 19 to 21" split rims. $75.00 plus shipping.
  14. These are usually missing from the carbs. This fits the air intake and acts as a spark arrestor. It does not filter. This is an original part that is very nice and the third one I have come across in about 25 years. $160.00 US plus shipping.
  15. Nice trim strip for 1920s Chandler. Has Chandler embossed on it as well as a neet deco pattern. Not overly corroded and should clean and straighten nicely. Measures 24" long. $50.00 US plus shipping.
