  1. Back in 1977 I sold my 1951 GMC 5 window 3100 pickup for $350.00 Sorry now, but at the time that was what it was worth. Life goes on. At least I never let the DeSoto go, probably because a 1930 car was already sort of an antique back then
  2. Hi Randy I had some reproduced some years ago and thought I still had a set. I found one and can send you a picture if you are interested. If you know someone with a metal shop, they are easy to copy. I probably would not go with flat plates, as it may reduce water flow around the cylinders. If you are interested I could possibly have my son copy the one I have. I am not sure what the cost would be, but it would be reasonable.
  3. Here is a better picture of the CK (mine)lights
  4. Those headlights are 1930 DeSoto CK6 and 1930 DeSoto CF8. The 1930 CK had an exact miniature as a fender mounted parking light, where as the CF had the parking light mounted on the fire wall chrome
  5. My 1930 DeSotoCK6 Rumble seat coupe. One of 600 total Canadian DeSoto production in 1930
  6. I do still have it. Not sure what it is worth. I know what I paid for it. Send me a PM with an offer and I will see what the shipping costs. I would need an address
  7. Hi Don To the best of my knowledge the pin that goes through the hub of the pulley and the shaft can be driven out with a punch. The impeller can only be removed intact by machining the shaft out of it from the center on a lathe. I had a new stainless shaft made for my 1930 DeSoto. Once the pump is apart, new brass bushings can be installed. Rick
  8. One more. Pictures of the car are on the restoration forum. 1930 DeSoto CK. The top step could be made since it is like a big ribbed washer. You can PM me if you are interested Rick
  9. Hi Ron I have a 1929/30/31 rumble seat step. I would sell it since I have what I need. The ring would have to be restored and rubber is available from Steeles. Attached are some pictures

    Looks like the DeSoto forum stalled at this one. Mars, the float has a small gear on the shaft that turns the variable resistor in the sending unit. You will have to measure the resistance with an ohm meter to see if it changes when it turns. Sounds like the resistor wire in your sending unit may be broken and touching ground. You will need a meter to find out what is going on. Can't fix these things by guessing
  11. Hi Patrick Payment received. Thank you! Rick
