  1. FOR SALE many antique & classic car lights & lamps

    Might you have any carbide generator equipped lamps? Thank you for your time. Tom
  2. I purchased parts from them many moons ago, OK with the transaction, as I was there in person to inspect. About 6 years ago, I had them rebuild a teapot carburetor for a client of mine, for his 56 Ford Victoria. Told them up front that the throttle shafts we're loose. "The rebuilder will assess them"" was the standard response. Plating was nice, but the throttle shafts were still sloppy. I suspect that they farmed it out to an offsite rebuilder. They did not honor my complaint. Buyer beware. Good luck. Tom
  3. pre-war Delco-Remy Distributor mystery port

    That is similar to Packard. It is to help prevent shaft side motion. There is no valve or check ball at the end of spring. It is more of a rubbing block that has conformed to the shape of the distributor shaft. Hope this helps. Tom
  4. How many of us are into very early hubcap collecting?

    Nice story. If your friend fooled his momma, he sure as hell fooled his pops by having twice as much money to spend on his collection! Heh, heh...

    @Fastam Was the Sturbridge Auto Museum connected with Old Sturbridge Village? Please share more memories, perhaps with photos, if you can. Tom

    Did anyone buy this project yet?
  7. Old car enthusiast touring Eastern US.

    There is Larz Anderson Auto Museum in Brookline, Ma. Known as America's Oldest Car Collection. Small but quaint. Worth the trip. Best of luck on your journey. By the way, do not forget to let us know where you ended up visiting. Tom

    Hi Cord, Hope all is well with your father during this tough time. Sending PM. Tom
  9. 1958 Ford Thunderbird

    Hello and welcome. I am going to assume that your 1958 Thunderbird comes with factory power steering? If so, you will have to get rid of the control valve located on the steering arm (driver's side outer tie rod is adjacent to the control valve). This will possibly entail finding an original non power steering setup and using that instead. Good luck. Tom Easiest and least costly way is to find an original pump and make it fit to the modern engine, still assuming that you have an original '58 power steering setup. Or gut it all out and use a modern steering and suspension setup. In that case, visit the HAMB forum.
  10. 312 Y block needs replacement carburetor

    Yes you can use the Holley 4160 model carburetor, if your intake manifold is for a four barrel carburetor. Make sure your distributor has been upgraded to include centrifugal advance innards. The early Y blocks did not have that type of distributor with the " teapot " carburetor. Good luck, Tom
  11. ScarfaceAl

    Cannot tell which vehicle we are discussing. Loss of carbon brush to rotor contact?
  12. Wonder what the issue is with the crooked front bumper?...
  13. I assume that the newspaper ad charges by the word, do you agree? Sometimes the newspaper editor will shorten the ad, in order to save space or quite possibly save the subscriber some change. Has happened to me in the past. Cut the poor fellow some slack, just call and inquire if it tickles your fancy.
  14. 1929 Hudson parts for sale

    Hi Bill, PM sent. Tom
  15. I am in need of a Dynaflow for my '49 320 engine. Just have engine, and no car to put it in, yet. The thought of a Buick straight eight powered Cadillac has me intrigued.... a pipe dream at this point. OK, back to mother earth. Please educate me on the similarities or differences of these straight eight automatics. Any year better than others? Thanks, Tom
