Hello!
My name is Eugene, I'm from Russia.
It so happened that I have a small group of enthusiasts set about restoring vintage American cars. (Yes, even in Russia, too, there are shops that specialize in classic American cars :)) Before that, our team is mainly specialized in the repair of modern vehicles.
Very nice to see people here who are keen restoration of vintage cars that are restored with their own hands "live" history. I know how to love the car, to devote all his spare time. So you all know very well.
The problem is that we have here is almost impossible to get spare parts, so you have to restore what we have.
In Russia, uses the metric system of measurement - and most-inch bolts and nuts have to make by hand, since Sales do not.
There is also a problem for information about cars, because these cars have not been used. It is good that there are some online resources as you like your forum, even if it is a language barrier.

For more information about cars, and possibly buy the necessary spare parts decided to turn to you for advice and show what we do.

Currently working on the car Hudson Commodore, 1949, 6 cylinder inline engine, two-door coupe.
That's what he came to us:

Sorry for the mistakes in the text - use an online translator :)

The first problem we face - is a powerful engine wear.
Now we need to find pistons and liners rings
Determined that the Pistons 3,582 "diamiter for 262 engines
Maybe somebody knows where to look for these parts?

In the picture of the right side of the Hudson in primer there is an early 1930's? era car facing the camera. What is it? Nice work, by the way.

thank you, JFranklin
I've found on the site, some parts for my 262 6 cylinder engine, but the diameter of the cylinder is not the same. How do I find the size you want? - I can not understand.
