  1. 1928 Chev Radiator Shell

    This would be called a radiator "shell". A "shroud" is the piece behind the rad that ducts the air to the fan. To answer your question all 28 Chevrolets had the same radiator shell.
  2. odd piston & rod

    My 1944 Clawson and Balls catalogue does not list a DA 51 B. It does list a DA 51 A which is for a Wisconsin engine. It is shown as c to c 8 3/8" bore 1.752 width 1 1/8". Hope this is some help.
  3. The steel spoke wheels were used on many single cylinder cars. The wood spokes often loosened with the power impulses.
  4. Year and Make please

    Another site insists that this is a Ford. I'm sure it isn't. I should know what it is but cannot remember. Thanks in advance.
  5. 31-32 Plymouth temp gage

    Sixty seconds to type search and copy and paste from "Google". The Temperature Gauge Guy Roy Martin 172 Laurel Hill Drive So. Burlington VT 05403 802-862-6374 or www.williamsons.com
  6. Pontiac Engine paint

    http://www.pontiacpower.org/enginecolor.htm I have never seen a Pontiac engine gray from the factory.
  7. Best functioning carburetor for early car

    Amen to trimacar's post.
  8. Front Axle c. 1920 What is It?

    Reverse Elliot spindle, 12 spokes, 12 hub bolts and 6 rim bolts could be Oakland or Buick???
  9. Grandmother again, not much to work with on this one

    Somebody will pop up with the answer. Good luck.
  10. my grandmother in a 26 dodge?

    Thanks guys. This was posted under Marmon and since someone said it wasn't a Marmon I said it should be posted here and the first two answers would be you two. Damn you guys are good.
  11. can someone identify this car/marmon, thanks

    Post this up in" Photo and Video " > "what is it". You would probably have positive id within 6 hours. Either Keiser31 or nzcarnerd will likely be the first two to reply.
  12. What make and year?

    Photo was taken in 1945 according to writing on back.
  13. Best Sealer for thermostat gasket & antifreeze

    I'll third Bob, but I have put many gaskets on dry and have not had any of them leak either.
  14. GLASS BOWL ON FUEL FILTER REMOVAL

    As BuickBob49 says there are two different size gaskets and several different size filters. Here is an exploded picture of one type. Do a Google search and you will fined hundreds of illustrations.
  15. GLASS BOWL ON FUEL FILTER REMOVAL

    We used to sell two types in the 60's and 70's when I was in GM parts. We sold sediment bowls which were simply an inlet, an outlet and a glass bowl to catch sediment. We also sold fuel filters (sediment bowl type) which had a ceramic (white) or metal (copper) filter and a spring to hold it up in place inside the bowl. Some fuel pumps came either way as well.
  16. Dating a Fort Collins, CO Postcard

    How did two of us beat Keiser31.....He must be still sleeping or else he is out taking pictures.
  17. The journey is what is important not the destination.
  18. Dating a Fort Collins, CO Postcard

    The newest cars I see are a 62 Olds, a 62 Pontiac and a 60 Falcon so the picture is newer than that, probably 1963/64.
  19. Sump discovery

    Those were OHV compressors, this is the kind you need. If you are doing this a dab of grease in the center of the keeper will keep it stuck to your finger until you transfer it to the valve stem.
  20. Sump discovery

    Valve spring keepers.
  21. 14.69 X compression ratio. If you do a search back at "home" you will find a lot of technical information on how cranking speed, wet or dry valve duration etc will affect this number. However for the average person atmospheric pressure times the compression ratio is close enough. This is a chart that will allow you to compensate for your height above sea level. https://www.avs.org/AVS/files/c7/c7edaedb-95b2-438f-adfb-36de54f87b9e.pdf
  22. Restoring a gas tank on my 1923 Moon

    He was often repairing a tank that was still on the car. He would just make sure the tank was absolutely full and then he used an acetylene torch to braze up the hole or holes as the case may be. As long as the tank was full there was no danger as gasoline needs to be vaporized to burn or explode. I always worked for him. After the first two or three times I even stayed in the shop and watched him.
  23. Electrical

    As Bhigdog suggests you have a ground. It could be the movable arm of the points grounding out or a short where the primary wire enters the dist housing. You can check the coil separately by holding the high tension wire near the block and having one primary wire attached and make and break the connection with the other one. If that gives you a high tension spark then your problem is inside the distributor. Otherwise it is between the coil and the distributor.
  24. Restoring a gas tank on my 1923 Moon

    That looks safe enough to weld. Looks like it hasn't seen gasoline for a long time. When my Mothers cousin had his service station he didn't have access to a steam cleaner so if it was on the bottom, sides or ends he just filled the tank with gasoline and welded it. He never had a problem.
