  1. My '31 Chrysler CM6 battery is under a floorboard on the driver side. The floormat material is screwed down. The owner's manual doesn't describe getting the battery out. Mine has lost it's charge... what's the best way to recharge the battery (6v, pos. grnd)?? Tom
  2. Pulled the head off the "A" today, and when cleaning it up found a small crack in the water jacket near the center of the head. Is this likely to pose any kind of problem in the future. I doesn't go beyond the picture, and doesn't affect the cylinder area. thanks, Tom
  3. John will be greatly missed by all that knew him.
  4. Anyone know age/application for this old Mallory condenser. It is much larger diameter than modern... has "Mallory Electrical Corp., Detroit Mich" on the headplate. ??
  5. mea culpa 2828657 is correct
  6. Thanks; I tried googling the patent # and got nothing meaningful... what's the magic:-?
  7. Knob marked "Fromberg Inc., Maywood CA" and "Pat 2828557 has a 1/4" threaded operating shaft inside, and two smaller shafts... like some kind of puller???
  8. Can anyone ID this radiator cap? thanks

    rotor ID

    More stuff to ID: the 1st rotor here is long (approx 4") and strange looking. 2nd rotor is much smaller, and probably so generic nobody will venture a guess. Also an old wood body bracket 4" base, 5 1/2" height (was in a box left over from a 20's Fisher body construct). More to come. thanks in advance
  10. All very good advice, but it is freed up, and moves up and down about 1/4" as noted. It feels like it's spring-loaded????
  11. Trying to get an app. ID'd. It was originally in a box of early Buick items I had.
  12. I'm in the process of taking the head off the 1931 "A", and after removing the distributor set screw, I freed up the distributor body, but I can only move it about 1/4" up from the head, and it springs back in, like there's a little troll down there keeping it in:-? I haven't read about this in any of the how-to books... I have a wood wedge under the body that holds it up maybe 1/8" :-(
