  1. I would highly recommend Diamond Back Tires "Auburn radials". I have 6.00 x 16 radials on my '35 Dodge. Thrilled with their appearance, ride, balance, everything. Also available 6.50 if that is what your car had. Original owner purchased a set of the '36 center wheel trims at the dealership so you see them in my pictures.
  2. I think I have two. Would you happen to have any '35s for trade? Message me might be best.
  3. Interested in any information relative to individual builds done POSTWAR by the Spohn Karosserie (Carosserie) in Ravensburg, Germany. Prior to WWII Spohn had been the primary builder of most Maybach automobiles. Spohn built on numerous chassis. Veritas BMWs have a great deal of support elsewhere. My primary interest is the approximately two dozen "Spohn Custom" cars created on customer chassis primarily for US service men while they were stationed in Germany. Josef Eiwanger, Jr., manager of Spohn postwar, felt that American-styled custom cars could be a profitable
  4. Buy a deep well socket rather than shorten the U-bolts! I've done many car and HD truck leaf spring changes. "As tight as I could get them" has always been the recommended torque. Oh, there is probably a printed spec somewhere but I don't have an engineering degree to care.
  5. ESPO Springs 'n Things. They also have all the specs, outstanding tech help on the order line. They'd be happy to make your one leaf (or might rightly suggest you replace the other side at the same time). Yes, I personally have used them multiple times and highly recommend.
  6. 1951 Kaiser Deluxe coupe. For 1952 the same car would be called a Manhattan. These two years are the only years of a "coupe" body with the shorter roof than the two door sedan which continued in later years. The 2D sedan basically using a 4D sedan upper roof stamping. Was my car. I sought out the body style because I thought the styling truly awesome.
  7. Kilo speedos are one heck of a conversation piece at an American car show in any LHD car! Would look great in my '35 Dodge convertible dash!
  8. Very nice but has nothing whatsoever to do with Chrysler nor any relationship of any kind.
  9. There is a Hudson forum and you would do well to post this there as well. Enjoy your restoration. Great car.
  10. You must be listening to the fan or your throttle linkage /carburetion or timing is very poorly adjusted. The car should do sixty EASILY. My '35 does.
  11. The first Essex-Terraplane was introduced in July of 1932. Name remained "E-T" through 1933. The '32s are narrow tread. What is the backing plate to backing plate measurement of this front axle?
  12. Got my bushings from ESPO Springs and Things. Very knowledgeable sales dept and very reasonable prices!
  13. Three comments: A chassis grease cup needs to be turned down "hard" to force the grease into the mechanical joint. The distributor and clutch cups need a very small turn; one revolution at the most. The old grease in any cut you have should be removed and washed out and a modern grease filled into the cup.
