  6. Have you seen the printed bookets Jason???????? The way I look at it the bookets that has been printed up would be best as one could pull the booket say carbuators take it to the garage for reference while one is pulling it apart or reassembling it.The CDs as I understand is base on the same information with the exp. of the one JB done on the Victroy 6. I wouln't be supprise see the Victrory 6 CD in print form too. Vern

  14. The difference in the voltage is deturment by the winding of the armutures and the fields The com.part that holds the brushes are only that.1 foot pound of masument should not be a problem in the torque to turn the engine These 6 volt dodge/chryslers cars were slow turning this was told to be by a dealer that sold these cars new. He stated that one would sware that the darn thing wouldn't start but they did.
  15. For some of us that is not inform correctry about the DBC web site: There's two(2) Discussion forms on the DBC site. 1- Is called DBC Discussion This form any one can post Non- Members/Members. 2-Members Only This form could be use to discuss isues that would only be of interest to the general mumbership. So one can see that it is not necessary to join to post in the non-members form. Here's something to think about,One reason there's a new web master is that the DBC form has to be kept up dated and actived to prove that the club is trying to educate the public in THe Dodge Brothers cars or risk the lost of the non-profit thing.If this happen well......... Vern
  16. Helfen, Do you still have your copy of the orginial order form when you frist order the car.If so this should be prof that you did order the car the said way.And yes it was spray so you would accept the purchase.
