  1. Mystery king pins

    Mark, thanks for that advice. I may try that if I cannot find a set.
  2. WTB 1931 Buick Front Bumper 50 series

    Although the 1931 50 series bumpers look similar to the 1931 60 series, they are different. All dimensions are slightly different - bars are 1/4" smaller, end bolts are 1/2" shorter, etc. Also, the 1930 bumpers are different.
  3. Mystery king pins

    I need to replace the king pins on my (unknown and incorrect) front axle. The pins are 7½” long, between .92” and .93” diameter, have Timken T95 thrust bearings, have a retaining pin, and bushings are 1-1/16” diameter x 1¼” long. Can anyone identify these so I can get new ones? Thanks in advance!
  4. Stearns lights?

    Simplex Motor Car Company used that logo on the Amplex, 1910 or later.
  5. 1917~

    Only 10 spokes on front wheels, which could narrow it down.
  6. Early US 89 scene

    Since the car is a convertible coupe rather than a roadster, it would be a 1931, model 96C. This body style was introduced midway through the 1931 model year.
  7. Wanted: 1931 Buick 8-90 frame

    I have a good straight frame for 1931 Buick 90 series. Send me a P.M.

    Here are some pictures of my axle. Hopefully someone can identify it. The axle casting number is 10572, instead of the number 10872 which I previously listed. The casting number appears on the left front and on the right rear of the axle faces. The plate on the floorboard says 608041. Thanks for your help.

    Based on the posts above, I must not have a 1924 front axle. My axle casting number is 10872. My frame number is A 27-736. Can anyone tell what axle I have?
  10. 1924 DODGE KING PINS

    I need king pins for my late 1924 Dodge.. My king pins are 7 1/2" long, 7/8" diameter, with spiral lubrication groove, copper bushings at top and bottom, thrust bearing, and slot for tapered retaining pin. The pins being marketed are actually a bolt with a nut, 6" active length, 7 1/2" total length, bushings at each end, no thrust bearing, no spiral lubrication groove. QUESTIONS: What do I have? Has my axle been changed? Where can I get new pins and bushings? Thanks for any help you can give.

    I agree that this is probably a Chalmers, possibly a 1916, 17, or 18 model 35A, 35B, or 6-30. There should be a serial number on the driver's side frame horn, and maybe on the passenger side also. (Please excuse my previous posts steering you to a different rabbit hole. I will blame my eyesight, rather than ignorance.) It would be great if Tenalquot could get additional information: wheelbase, if possible; engine bore; additional pictures of both side of the engine, etc., etc., etc. There may be another number on the driver's side of the engine.

    Re: previous post, I wasn't sure how to post text PLUS a picture. Anyway, the engine in the original post appears to be a Continental 6V. The car is possibly a 1918 Moon 6-36. I cannot find any pictures of that car or engine. The Moon had semi-eliptical rear springs, and a Jacobsen differential. The Saxon had cantilever springs, and a Timken rear end.

    I believe this is a Continental 6V engine, used in the Saxon and the Moon. More info. is needed, including the bore, and hopefully, the approximate wheelbase. If you look at the right side of the engine, there appears to be a carburetor attached to the block. The space between the number 3 and 4 cylinders is larger, which would permit an intake passage over to the lengthwise internal intake manifold.

    I believe it is a Continental engine, but haven't researched the car make. Here is a list of cars that used Continental engines: https://www.hemmings.com/blog/2008/12/10/companies-that-used-continental-engines-the-complete-list/
