  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
  6. HI from Aus just about all these fan blades from 27-29 on victory standard senior and da will have fatigue cracks ,Ihave a standard 6 and a senior 6 both of which had blade failure Glen Smiths da and victory 6 also .We have changed the faulty fan blades with an early model valiant fan ,only minor modification required.
  7. i can send you a conrod from aus if you cant source one. 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 was also helpful , keep up the good work, off to colac Dodge rally friday We will be in a 28 blue senior sedan so I can catch up then Stuart

  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. hi have you tried the choke just to see if you are running a bit lean sometimes works
  16. I totally agree with nearchoclatetown if you dont follow this advice ,everytime you go to do something on the car you will probably be distracted by starting the motor and get nothing done on the car, also a motor needs to be at operating temperature before fuel adjustments/timing either way enjoy your car
  17. Contact this guy he produces almost any rim you can provide a pattern victory 6 wires no problem I have a set made for my senior 6 slightly different you can get the idea VINTAGE RIMS AUSTRALIA www.vintagerimsaus.com 2251db
  18. Ian approx 54 weeks until our Queensland rally 2016 ,wil you be ready good luck great progress 2251db
  19. remove the oil felt on the shaft to the dome add kerosene and turn the shaft with a drill on low speed ,the shaft must be able to turn before you use this process. after the shaft spins freely lightly oil and replace the felt works for me ,this process can take several hours very similar to the article above good luck
  20. The senior six sedan has all steel fire wall , centre pillars and doors ,the rear section has a wood frame The exterior pattern is the same ,the internal frame has vertical middle piece not a cross pattern as shown It was only a suggestion 2251DB
  21. Try 27/28 senior six ,the trim inside the door around the window is slightly different to mine in AUS
  22. If your restoration cost 20 k all up then the first year is 20 k after 5 years the cost is 4 k per year , getting cheaper our 28 dodge has been with us for over 40 years owes nothing and is still a pleasure to drive To keep all parties happy just keep extending the time frame until the cost is minimal Good luck 2251 db
  23. Hi 27 chevy on my dodge the lifters had worn like yours , my solution was to have the tops ground level to enable correct adjustment has worked for 15000 miles ,this was a cheap operation ,you can actually do this yourself on a grinding wheel ,taking measurements to ensure accuracy best of luck
