  1. Looks great Ron keep up the good work ,looks like you are on the home straight
  2. my apology John , the gears were apparently turned around on the main shaft where they could be pressed off and turned around i was misleading about using the term reverse ,not meaning the reverse gear I withdraw my comments
  3. A friend of mine reversed the gears as you have suggested brilliant idea untii he pointed out that there is just as many down hills as there is uphills so the noise remained in reverse
  4. Hi trini there is a photo of our 1928 senior 6 (open tail shaft) that I sent to keiser31 on the 20th of january 2013 if that is of any help.about page 141 stuart &julie dodge collection
  5. Hi Matt I usually seal the small with weld and lubricate the shafts when servicing the car 2251DB

  8. Hi your car looks great ,I also have a dodge sedan restored in 96 .One thing that may be of help to you at this stage of restoration is to install a drip tray/channel at the back rear windows .My car didnt have anything and the water ran down onto the inner guard and rusted the panel as the water was trapped between the upholstery and the body.The channel is sealed at both ends with a half inch copper pipe soldered to one end to drain the excess water.(73 holden torana bypass hose connected the pipe to the wheel well at the back of the rear wheel.) PS .My german shepard

  10. Hi my senior fuel line also runs as per the other Senior sixes ,however i installed a rubber sleeve over the pipe where it runs behind the block.I have had no trouble with the fuel. ignition too far retarded can be a problem for erratic running and overheating, Hope you find a solution soon so you can once again enjoy your car
  11. I HAVE SEEN A LIGHT TAPERED CHANNEL ATTACHED TO THE RADIATOR STAY RODS OR AS WITH A DODGE 4 ATTACHED TO TH E FIREWALL TAPERING TOWARDS THE RADIATOR ,IT WORKS 2251DB
  12. I read in my local car club magazine My biggest fear is that when I die my wife will sell all my old car projects for the same amount of money that I told her I paid for them 2251DB
  13. how is your progress i would like to see more pictures i also have a senior six
  14. As 1 of the rally organisers and the owner of the 2251 senior six I was pleasantly surprised to see a 2249 senior six (wood wheels and deep purple colour) and a 2251 senior six as well (on the trailer under restoration) It was rare to see the three models at the one time given their rarity in Australia
  15. Ian approx 54 weeks until our Queensland rally 2016 ,wil you be ready good luck great progress 2251db
  16. Brake drums from this era can be resprayed with metal,either mild steel or cast iron can be applied to a mild steel drum then machined to size If the drums run reasonably true then they are usually serviceable. most drums cant be turned down as there enough metal to do so hope this is slightly helpful
