  1. Frank, There is a fellow in Ohio, Michael Bernard, who is reproducing Stanley wheel bolts. They are 7/16-14 x 2 3/4", his email is modeltmichael@yahoo.com perhaps these will help. Good Luck, Chris
  2. I will be searching the rows of Hershey for a steering wheel and light switch for a 32 DeSoto SC so if you have one, even if its not perfect, let me know. Or if you know of a vender spot that I should check out, that would be great also Thank You Chris steam1912@Yahoo.com
  3. Jim, If it is a single disc clutch, A dry pilot bushing will give you that trouble. A few years back my father in law's Franklin, with a wet clutch, gave us that same problem and all he did was take it apart and clean the disc's. It worked much better, but has never been perfect. Good Luck
  4. Any one have a steering wheel in decent condition they would like to sell? Also looking for an original style light switch. Thanks, Chris
  5. I am looking for an original engine, that does or doesn't need to be rebuilt. Even an incomplete would be of interest Any help is appreciated, Chris
  6. My father-in-law's Franklin oil pressure gauge is leaking oil. I removed the gauge from the dash to inspect. It is a Hancock ON/OFF gauge that is soldered together. Does anyone have a thought on repair procedure or are there any replacements out there? The brass case was painted black. Thanks, Chris<!-- google_ad_section_end -->

  8. I have yet to see LED replacement bulbs that I thought were brighter than halogen. But the LED's will draw less current.
  9. FACINATING ........ I have seen 40's cars that have a ground circuit for the starter solenoid run through the field of the generator, to prevent over cranking. Does this gadget engage the starter if the generator dies to move the car from being run over by the train? Please keep us posted Chris
  10. I have seen a worn exhaust lobe on a camshaft cause that problem Good luck
  11. Any photos of the steering wheel and box? Chris
  12. WOW, Sorry guys ,I had no intention of offending anyone. As I stated in my request for help, I am helping another fellow. The shop owner asked for my help with a few issues on this conversion, It is not my car. That being said, I believe the owner of the car's 2 biggest concerns were difficult starting and night driving. The starting issue ,I'm sure, could have been corrected, but the12v halogen seal beam headlights are impressive, and will no doubt make an improvement . I agree that we should all do our best as 'custodians' of our cars to maintain originality, but I also love to drive my car
  13. I am helping a fellow with a 12v. conversion on a 41 Cadillac (originally 6v. positive ground) The one issue we are having is the temp. gauge. We dropped the voltage feed to 6v. for both fuel and temp gauges, and the fuel gauge works fine, the temp gauge however never rises off of cold, and if you ground the wire at the sender the needle seems to want to move even colder. Does anyone know if reversing the wires on the gauge will correct this problem. when the wire to the sender is opened the needle stays at cold. THANKS, Chris
  14. Dont sweat it Jack, we all have our moments, the one on ebay looks right, hopefully it will workout
  15. Last year I put an adjustable in line regulator w/ a range from 1/2-5psi on my stutz to run until I could get the vaccum tank working. I think most parts stores keep it in stock, 1/8 npt in and out, very simple to adapt. If memory serves it was around $40. Chris
