  1. simple rule of thumb, if it contained liquid, drain, flush and refresh. While your at it, have a close look at the brakes, make sure all you linkages don't have too much play. would also look at replacing the tyres (rubber doesn't age well and tyres are a safety item). Then look at any other rubber bits
  2. Interesting, its running 1929 Bumpers and taillight, 1928 The bumperette's didn't have the centre pins. They had over riders that held that end in. also the taillight was a simple round one like a dodge/chrysler. I will see if I can find a photo or the rear of my sedan (my tourer uses the earlier wrap around bumpers).

    Rarity ? Pure sales talk?

    "Rare" a sales term, used in the classic car industry for "nobody wanted it when it was sold new"

    1929 Graham Paige Model 621 replacement carburetor

    All the small six Johnsons disintegrated. I don't think I have a whole one.. We are using Tillitsons over here . I think the big six guys here went Detroit Lubricator, which I think the 8s ran

    1937 Supercharged Graham

    Graham was well known for Supercharging. The implemented it across the range in 1934 as an option and from '36 I believe it became a "no cost option". Graham produced the most production supercharged cars up until the GNX was released.

    Possible Graham Styling Art - MURDOCH - Seeking information

    Cant offer you any more than my personal opinions of the car Well I can see some Graham Elements. The glasshouse and the headlights look sharknose. The body looks to be a mix of sharknose with hints of hollywood. That Front end looks weird though. Could have been someone trying to add a conventional front end to the sharknose to make it less controversial. Oh and I dont like the front. put the sharknose front on it and you have a winner, it would be a more cohesive design than what was produced
  11. Fourth is the same as third in the three speed so 1:1. They inserted a really low first gear and ramped up the rear axle ratio to get the speed. The three speed rear axle was either 4.1:1 or 4.7:1, the 4.7:1 was carried into the 612 and the 4.4:1 was only available in the early cars. You will find yours is 3.?:1 or the like. Do you have a parts manual? I am pretty sure the ratios are in that, I don't have a 614 one only 610, 612 and 615.

    Couple of Graham pics

    That Cream Crusader is unique here in Australia as it is running the US body. The car was imported by the current owner when he emigrated from Uruguay. All of the locally sold cars had locally built bodies on them and look different including having suicide doors. Current owner keeps it in immaculate condition. it looks stunning at all times The '34 was restored by the same guy 3 times. Every time he restored it his hometown flooded and he had to restore it again. He eventually sold it to the current owner. I first saw the car in 1976 at the Queensland national rally. The then owner took my father and 4 other Graham Paige owners for a ride. They were sitting on 50 MPH and the owner said watch this,. He floored it, and the three guys sitting in the back seat, who were all leaning on the back of the front seat were all pushed back in their seat. Its an impressive piece of machinery

    26 Graham

    26 Graham would be a Graham Brothers truck. Basically a Dodge Brother Truck built under Licence. Dodge brought the graham Brothers out in about 1926/27, giving them the money to buy Paige.

    29 Graham axle removal

    This is probably too late, but. Yes you do need to remove the axles. The hard part will be removing the remaining piece of axle from the diff centre. The axles come out by taking the wheels off, Your going to need a puller that screws onto the hub for this, then removing the 4 bolts holding the retaining cage, DONT MIX UP THE SHIMS, the axle float is set by the shims. the axle should just pull out at that point.

    Paige, and some racing history.

    Ok, here is some information I have garnered over the years. in the early 1920s they also raced and wont at Daytona beach. The specific car ended up in Australia. It had a German Silver radiator surround. I saw the engine while it was being rebuilt. It had been through a bush-fire and the block was slightly bent. No matter they recovered t and the car was rebuilt. it sat fir a couple of years in a car sale showroom as a display and then was sold at auction in Sydney. I believe the car then went overseas. Over here in Australia the local distributor was Walther Whitbourne.. He was a regular competitor over here through the 1920s and up to 1934 when he had a a rater nasty accident in his Graham Paige Special and gave up racing. I have seen picture from newspaper articles of the 1925 Paige boat-tail racer that he successfully campaigned from 1925 through to 1931. There is also records of him winning a hill-climb in November 1928 is a standard 610 sedan and a 619 Special. he also regularly campaigned the 619 Special for a number of years and also competed in a number of regulatory trials in 610 sedans. The Queensland distributor was also a keen competitor and was regularly seen competing in a 615 sedan in 1929.
