    Will the updraft Carter BB1 work on the 1929 Oakland AA6?
  2. 63 Rivera Air

    I do have a chassis manual. I have checked and replaced all hoses that need to be replaced. Just for my info, if the dual diaphragm is bad, does anyone know where I can find one?
  3. I am having trouble with the air condition on my 63 Riviera. I can not get air to blow thru the air vents on the dash. I tried changing some of the vacuum valves under the hood that controls this, but with no luck. I even purchased a complete control modular on Ebay and replace it still no luck. Any Ideas? Is there a replacement unit for these cars to do away with these vacuum valves?

    How will I know which ones of these will work? Are there specific numbers on these carbs?
  5. Is there a replacement carb for the Marvel carb on a 1929 Oakland AAA6? It seems my Marvel carb is hard to adjust. Let me know.
  6. I have not driven my 63 Riviera for a while. Took it off the car lift yesterday and noticed the power brake depressed easily and the pedal would not come back after hitting the brakes. I opened up the master cylinder and it looked like it was full of a muddy like fluid. What would cause this? I assume I would have to replace the master cylinder but will I have to replace all brake lines etc?
  7. Cleaning yellow white wall times

    This is a reply to Matt Harwood. Yes, I did purchase and change all 5 tires at the same time. I never drove on the tires. I mounted the tires and put the car on my car lift until just recently. I said I spend over $1000 for the tires. ActuallyI I paid $250 each plus the price for tubes and shipping. I finally tried lacquer cleaner on the tires as suggested by a reply and the tires did come white. Don't know how long they will stay that way.
  8. Cleaning yellow white wall times

    Thanks for all the info on my whitewall tires. I purchased these tires a year ago and never drove on them. Put the car on the top of a car lift. I don't understand why the spare tire mounted on back of my Oakland stayed white while he four on the wheels turned yellow.. I will try what was recommended. I suppose I should of inquired about Coker before I bought the tires. Way over a $1000 for these tires.
  9. Cleaning yellow white wall times

    I have a 29 Oakland with whitewall tires i purchased last year from Coker Tire. The 4 tires on the car turned a yellowish color. The spare on the rear remained white. I tried cleaning the tires with Wesley's Bleach white and also comet cleanser, but they still look yellow. Does anyone know a way to clean them and also why they turned yellow, but the spare did not. I have the Oakland on the top of a car lift so it is off the ground. Thanks.
  10. 1920's car tire issue

    My Oakland wheels are two piece. You have the wooden spoke hubs and then you have an outer rim that comes off of the spoke hubs. This outer rim is where the tube and tire mount to. The inside of this is smooth. It attaches to the hub via 4 lugs.
  11. 1920's car tire issue

    Do you really need these liners? I have a 29 Oakland for the last 32 years and my tires do not have them. I never had any trouble with the tires or tubes, except the tires have cracks along the outside due to age. I recently purchased a set of Lester white walls, which arrived yesterday. I am going to install them and not use these liners. Am I wrong?
  12. I adjusted the vacuum switches as per manual on my 63 Riviera, but I do not get AC air out of the air vents in the dash, only from the heater vents. If I by-pass #1 switch the air comes out of the dash as it is suppose to. I changed the #1 switch, thinking it must be bad, but it is the same thing. Any suggestions????

    Can someone tell me where I can purchase a spare tire cover? I have a 29 Oakland with the spare mounted on the back and looking for a cover for it The tire size is 550-19. Thanks
  14. I am looking for the little check valve that sets on top of the intake manifole that goes to the air condition controls. I loose vacuum when I accelerate the car and checked all the vacuum hoses, which seem OK. The manual says that my problem is probably do to a bad check valve. I looked everywhere and even went to the local parts store, but no luck. Would appreciate any info.

    I am looking to buy a set of 550-19 tires for my 29 Oakland. I have checked Coker tires and Lucas tires Coker sells B.F Goodrich which says they are made in America. Lucas Tire has Lester and Lucas tires in this size but do no say where they are made. The Lucas and Lester are less expensive than Goodrich, but I wonder if anyone has any feed back on these tires. I would like to buy American made, but looking for quality as well as price. Would appreciate any input. Also do you know of any other makes of tires that is this size?
