  1. Ron, yes, post 10 states that is the 1928 motor. If your going to drive one of these it's the motor to have in a Chevrolet. They do not have the cracking, and overheating problems of the earlier engines. Thanks, Karl
  2. Here are some before photos showing what a straight rust free car this is before it's restoration. Trades considered , (not projects). Spring is coming, it is ready for touring! Karl
  3. Mike, 1921-22-23 Series 32 HAD MANUAL ADVANCE for 24-29 DEGREES (small arm).AND AUTO ADVANCE FOR12-18 DEGREES. auto advance starts at 575 rpms. Delco number for this distributor is 5216. Dual plug 4 cyl. dist. is #5225. Delco cap for 6: 14320 or14884, rotor12071, rotor brush:23895, 6 cyl cam:31609, contact arm12413, contact screw12411. 1924 went to a 12 hole single cap, as did the trucks. So I guess you have to find 1921-23 only. If you have the cams I still think they could work on the truck body. I guess the 2-1 rotation is still the unknown for you needs. I do not find the cap used anywhere else, Points are used everywhere. Karl
  4. Mike, I just checked my 4 cylinder Pierce truck distributor, it takes two revolutions on the lower shaft to get one on the rotor. I do not have a 6cyl to check if it too requires two revolutions. If that is the same, the body should be just fine. If the car has a little hotter timing curve I am sure that could be changed for a hot rod. I know the brass car dual plug 4 cyl guys love this set up to replace worn mags using the truck distributors as is. I can check the Pierce rosters and get you a few guys that have series 32-33 autos who may know of someone with a pile of engine parts they will never use. My big Delco book is at home. I will check when I get home what all uses the 6cyl cap and post that here. Karl
  5. Mike, there are two versions of this unit. The one in the car looks to be the internal advance for timing unit from autos. (dual valve 6 cyl.), the "dirty" one looks to be from a Pierce truck with manual timing advance. The Stuts guys usually look for auto advance. The truck version comes up on e-bay from time to time. The truck units will have to have 6 lobe cams installed, (they unbolt from the shaft) as they are dual plug 4 cyls. Caps, points and condensers would fit without modification to the 4 cyl distributor. I do not have an extra at this time , but will let you know if I see one. Karl
  6. 1920 Cleveland six model 40

    Michael, Love the tree growing into the front bumper. Did you cut that out? Karl
  7. Can anyone ID this motor?

    Rolf, My Delco book shows the distributor used in the following vehicles: Atterbury 1921- 22 model R, Elcar 8R Continental, 1922-23 Kelly Springfield model K40 &30. I am sure others too. With this info I would guess this engine is from 1920-1923. Karl
  8. Nice day here in PA so before the snow flies we took the Pierce for a drive and put some stable in the fuel. Stopped for a photo, not much color left in the leaves. Car ran great. Karl
  9. Buyer's premium

    The Bothwell brass car auction last weekend had a 25% buyers fee, 8% California sales tax and $50 to bid. It did not keep people from paying over a million dollars for 2 cars! And, the PA resale lic. from PA is not honored for buying in this auction. I had a friend going and asked him to bid on one item, I can assure you the "fees" were figured in the amount he could bid. Karl
  10. chistech, You are also correct this 1928 block makes this a wonderful road touring car and the best of the 4's. Engine has new pistons, new Babbitt, valves, etc., runs cool. A little back story: car was purchased twenty years ago by the previous owner. Car was torn apart, and most of the mechanical parts sourced for full restoration, after five years it became a "shelf". The next fifteen it sat with nothing done. Two years ago we purchased this car, body, fenders, and gutted upholstery off and in boxes. After many call to Chevrolet experts and photos of other finished Chevrolet Touring's, here are the results. Too many early cars never get this second chance and are parted out! Anyone considering an early Chevrolet should not let this one get away. You can not buy and pay to restore one for the asking price. Karl
  11. Don, thanks for the kind words. It does have the 1928 upgraded head and manifolds. I am amazed at the performance of this car every time I drive it. It also stops quite well on the clamp style two wheel brakes. I can see why GM was getting its share of Fords market with over 600,000 V models sold in 26-7. Karl
  12. Marty, The Series V was produced in mid 1926 and was marketed into the first part of the 1927 sales year. So that said, it's a 1927 version of the 1926 model. Chevrolet has the vin number break for 1926 and 1927 V series. It's vin. makes this an early 1927. Not unusual to sell left over models as the "new" model. There are no changes made to the V series for 1927. The Capital AA would be the also January 1927 newest model. Hope this clears up the confusion. Karl

  14. Delco, Remy & Delco-Remy history Question

    NZCARNERD, I did mean Durant, not Leland. I have a copy of Al Slones book on my shelf at home, I will have to look and see if it has much to say about the 1926 merger of the two companies. When looking for repro data tags we also have the big and small tags with the same info on the same year Pierce Arrows. They do not interchange as the pin distances are not the same. Karl
