  1. Further down, on the Chrysler forum you might get more information quicker. The cable (the inner part) was almost universal from the mid 30's up into the early 70's. The only variations were the ends and they were swaged on. A .58 second Google search turned up hundreds of sources. Three that I have personally dealt with are below. http://www.robertsmotorparts.com/store/speedometer-cable-69-inch-1 http://www.oldmoparts.com/ http://www.vintagepartsource.com/chryslerparts.htm Remember only lubricate the lower third of the cable.

    I have about ten different locos carved out of coal as well as seventeen vintage autos.
  3. Question for you experienced guys

    As Larry Schramm said 'On car purchases, I just go and do it myself to be sure all is correct. If it is not right, then only one person to blame." Three times I helped friends who were far away and needed someone to look at a car. One came back at me five years later because the engine developed a timing cover leak that required the engine to be removed to fix, obviously my fault and another was upset because the quarter panel rusted after three years. All I would help with now would be to tell the person there is a car here, this is the serial number and it is a certain color. Go yourself or hire a professional. My son looked at a Porsche on ebay, contracted with an appraiser in LA, liked the report, bought the car and drove it happily for 11 years.

    Mine are the heavy ones as well but I thought of you when I saw the ad. Good Luck with your search.

  7. Tick-Tick-Ticking

    If you blip the accelerator and the noise is louder on deceleration it very well could be a wrist pin bushing. When I had a wrist pin knock on my Buick the old time mechanics said to leave it until I had another reason to open the engine. They said it was common and could come back again fifteen or twenty thousand miles after being repaired. Several years later I collapsed a piston (#2) and at that time fixed the wrist pin bushing (#6).
  8. Help Identify this hood ornament

    Also broken 1930 Pontiac. Actually Series 6-30B and Series 401.
  9. 1925 Speedo setup help

    Make sure you only lube the bottom third of the cable. Lube on the top part works it's way into the speedo head.
  10. Auburn 1932 Branke Band Material

    Make sure to check HUPMOBILE after 1927, DODGE 1928 (some), NASH 1929 (some), STUDEBAKER DICTATOR 1934, GRAHAM BROS TRUCK 1928-29, DEVSUX. These were Midland Steeldraulic but I don't know the diameter. Pontiac, Oakland 28-32 and GMC T11 1929 used Midland Steeldraulic as well but they were all smaller than 12". I have a PDF file on the proper adjusting of these brakes if you needed it.
  11. Auburn 1932 Branke Band Material

    If they are "Midland Steeldraulic" brakes there are some pre cut and pre shaped linings around. I bought a set on ebay last year so I would have spares for my Pontiac.

    Same as 49 I believe.
  13. Front Passenger door locks- why only there?

    Gary W Only in the USA, Canadian Ford T's had four doors, probably to accommodate export to RHD countries.
  14. Berg emergency pull-push knob... charge?

    Air brake control for trailer???
  15. Front Passenger door locks- why only there?

    In many places it was illegal to enter or exit a vehicle from the left (traffic) side.

    The glass shops used to replace these without removing the frame from the car. Our local glass shops still do it this way. Why take the door apart if there is no need.

    JH is correct about the name. However: The flag of Canada, often referred to as the Canadian flag, or unofficially as the Maple Leaf and l'Unifolié (French for "the one-leafed"), is a national flag consisting of a red field with a white square at its centre in the ratio of 1:2:1, in the middle of which is featured a stylized, red, 11-pointed maple leaf charged in the centre.[1] It is the first specified by law for use as the country's national flag. In 1964, Prime Minister Lester B. Pearson formed a committee to resolve the ongoing issue of the lack of an official Canadian flag, sparking a serious debate about a flag change to replace the Union Flag. Out of three choices, the maple leaf design by George Stanley,[2] based on the flag of the Royal Military College of Canada, was selected. The flag made its first official appearance on February 15, 1965; the date is now celebrated annually as National Flag of Canada Day. The Canadian Red Ensign was unofficially used since the 1890s and approved by a 1945 Order in Council for use "wherever place or occasion may make it desirable to fly a distinctive Canadian flag".[3][4] Also, the Royal Union Flag remains an official flag in Canada. There is no law dictating how the national flag is to be treated. There are, however, conventions and protocols to guide how it is to be displayed and its place in the order of precedence of flags, which gives it primacy over the aforementioned and most other flags. Many different flags created for use by Canadian officials, government bodies, and military forces contain the maple leaf motif in some fashion, either by having the Canadian flag charged in the canton, or by including maple leaves in the design.

    Fantastic engine and car. In the late 50's and early 60's DKWs made a great showing in prairie skill tests and rallies, even fairly good in ice races on the Red River (the north one).
  23. Unknown Buick frame in woods

    That's because the young saplings are protected from mowers and such.
