  1. What is it.....

  2. Leaf springs

    Small universe.......
  3. Leaf springs

    Hey guys....thanks for the thanks.....however, I think hwellens is giving you the data.
  4. Leaf springs

    hwellens...The car I need spring info on is a series "A" 1930 Pierce Arrow.
  5. Leaf springs

    By the way, I was looking through my files and found "leaf Spring Data Manual, Volume 12" compiled by the Leaf Spring institute. It covers springs up to and including three ton units for cars 1946 thru 1956. Are there earlier versions available out there?
  6. Leaf springs

    Rusty...Jim...Thanks, Jim you brought up issue I anticipated; that being a similar spring (performance wise) to the original could be made, yet, would not look like the original.
  7. Leaf springs

    Is it better to have springs rearched; or should you have new ones made? Can anyone recommend a leaf spring manufacturer that can reproduce leaf springs of the twenties/thirties duplicating tapers etc. to make the springs look like the originals. Or is there a NOS supplier out there?
  8. Small image of two early cars.

    Whatever the back car is; it looks brand new.
  9. Can you identify this car body?

    Where did he obtain the body.......if it came off a '11 Cadillac, could it be custom/one off....or early replacement?
  10. I just remove each old fitting drop it in some solvent; meanwhile, I screw in a modern fitting; lube up the site then put the cleaned old fitting back. Note, not all of the sites require grease. Some require heavy oil. Check your owner's manual.
  11. Radiator hose

    I would keep these parts...they are period and I'll bet there is someone out there that could use them.
  12. Tillotson carb adjustment

    Motoringicons....Caddyshack..................Thanks, cranked the beast up today...backfired a little at first then evened out ...let her run for a while with the gas up, spark retarted .....slowly eased off the gas and cut back on the spark retard...she leveled out as the carb rid itself of gunk from the dead gas...
  13. Tillotson carb adjustment

    Thanks Motoringicons!
  14. Tillotson carb adjustment

    Just went through my poor "A" model...it had been sitting for 4 or 5 years since I last started/ran it. I lubricated all the grease fittings, changed the oil, checked the timing, points, spark gap, put a little oil in each cylinder, turned it over by hand several turns. Pumped up all of the tires, topped off the transmission, steering box and rear end with 600w oil, drained what little dead gas there was (pint at most), and sprayed some carb cleaner in the gas inlet port of the carb. I did not dismantle the Tillotson carb. My questions are; how many turns open do you set the choke rod adjustment and how many turns open do you set the idle/run adjustment (horizontal screw above bowl going into throat area?
  15. 29 chrysler overheating

    Check for heavy sediment in the water jackets...possible sediment/clogs in the radiator
