  1. Effectively, the first letter is a Q and not a O. I confirm that the following number are I66I. What they means? and, i don't remember, the other numbers stamped on little label starting with 222- 1591, and fixed on firewall, have a particular meaning?
  2. I think that a forum should be used only to share the same passion and be of help to those who, like me, does not have enough specific knowledge. It may happen that there are different opinions and different ways of interpreting things. All these things I think is right managed privately. I live at the other side of the world, and I fields concerned what happens to you, but I care about how you can help me to complete my car. Then on the level of restoration, each has their own preferences, perhaps we Italians have the ability to restore the car with the greatest respect for the originality in the world.
  3. Sorry: we use a english terms: bulkhead = firewall
  4. Joe, thanks for your compliments. Arms: iron curved and then nichel covered. for your question underlined.. please specify !!! your english is to much difficoult for me. For the numbers on the bulkhead, they are 0I66I, i don't know if the vertical bar are numbers (one) or simply a divisory.
  5. For Joe: enclose you find the photos of rear support. The support come from vintageandclassicreproductions, the arm is self made. It's look like original, but other seen are only in one piece, not 2 (arm and support). For the number, ...sorry i have forgot it, maybe in the afternoon I come back from mechanic. for Rusty_OT, thanks, the car is 1929
  6. Ok Joe, when I come back to home I will control the number and I will post detailed Pics, You must waiting Sat-Sund. Stefano
  7. Great "Phil" Also in Italy we have "fiscal power" in italian language "Cavalli fiscali". I don't know the formula, but it was, for several years, the parameter for calculating the car tax. This system run until some years ago, now for our tax we are using KW (KiloWatt) = Horsepower x 0,746 Now remain the question about Rpm !! Maybe you can find this data on the car brochure or on old magazine from the period
