  1. I saw a clamp on another bumper assembly I have , so I removed it and took some photos. Perhaps it's too wide at just under 3". Scott
  2. According to my Parts Manuals...... EK Big Six 5 passenger coupe made in the US Series 22 are vehicle s/n 2,000,001 - 2,017,139 Series 23 are vehicle s/n 2,017,140 - Series 24 are vehicle s/n 2.027,500 - Cars made in Canada Series 22 are vehicle s/n 2,050,001 - Series 23 are vehicle s/n 2,050,737 - Series 24 are vehicle s/n 2,051,277 - Scott
  3. They take a carriage bolt. 2" wide, 2" high (top of bolt to inside top of bracket), 5/8" deep space in the clamping area. Scott
  4. Pretty much everything you see on this page. If you have disk wheels there were a couple of other rim tools also. I have a few of these tools if you need them (adjustble wrench, hammer, hub cap wrench, pliers, socket wrench - p/n 15268, jack, engine crank, a couple of the open ends). I have several rim spreaders too - for spoke wheels. Scott smrdeza@power-net.net
  5. I have two styles that would fit. Let me know if either one would work for you. Scott smrdeza@power-net.net
  6. My dad bought a 1969 KM2500 3/4 ton 4x4 4 speed with the 305-E V6 pickup new and I drove it for years. After 235,000 miles it spun #3 rod brearing (also had 4.56 gears) and I sold it. I can help a bit from a technical standpoint as I spent time under the hood and chassis a few times. The 305-E was based off of the 351 V6 that GMC used in their medium duty truck. It was a unique 60 degree design with a 4.25" bore and 3.58" stroke. It was a fairly low compression engine at 7.75:1 compression. 165 hp and 280 ft lbs of torque. Scott smrdeza@power-net.net
  7. I have a number of clamps that attach to the bumper, but don't have much in the way of bracketry that attaches to the frame. I can probably help with the clamping end and maybe you can fabricate to the frame from there. A photo of the back side of what you have might help. I have a couple of Biflex bumper assemblies so I can find the right size clamp. Scott
  8. I have plenty of door handles. You are looking for p/n 38746. Send me a note and let me know how many you need. Scott smrdeza@power-net.net
  9. My best guess is these are from mid-20's enclosed cars. Not sure which model but definitely Studebaker. Make me a reasonable offer. Scott
  10. I'm not sure which Studebaker models these fit. Of course the curtains need replaced but the rollers and several of the end supports are there. I measured the widths to the outside of the roller flanges: 24-1/4" (qty 1), 26-1/4" (qty 2), 28" (qty 1), 28-3/4" (qty 1), 32-1/8" (qty 2). If you're interested, send me an e-mail. Scott smrdeza@power-net.net
  11. Step is 5-1/2" square, hole spacing on bracket is 1-3/8", hole spacing on step is 2-1/2". Asking $10.00 each.
  12. Does anyone have an original running board trim part as pictured they would be willing to sell? This provided access to the leaf spring pivot oiler. I can easily make one out of aluminum but I'm trying to find an original since the material these were made from is different from today's metals. You can reply or e-mail me. Thanks. Scott smrdeza@lentel.com
  13. http://forums.aaca.org/f185/whippet-rumble-seat-step-311161.html
  14. I believe these to be fender steps to a Whippet Model 96 Cabriolet Coupe or Roadster with a rumble seat. If interested, send me a note. Thanks. Scott smrdeza@power-net.net
  15. I have several original ones in various conditions. Not sure how to test them though. Scott smrdeza@power-net.net
  16. Regarding Light Six colors, I see what you are referring to in the parts book but all other info says black only, so I guess I don't know. The Princess Louise Lake was a maroon color. My guess is that it was on the darker side.
  17. Depends on the model. Light Six was black only for all years. In 1923, the Special Six could be had in black or blue with black hood and blue wheels with gold pinstriped wheels and hood louvers. In 1924 they added the Princess Louise Lake Maroon. I imagine that the Big Six had a wider array of colors. Scott
  18. Answering Glenn’s question on why aviation fuel (avgas) doesn’t contain ethanol. There are probably a few reasons: 1) Avgas is a specific product with its own additive package and has always had a separate distribution system as compared to automotive fuels, so it has been easier to keep it out of the main stream changes. 2) Avgas is a fairly low volume commodity (0.14% of auto use) and is not as scrutinized. 3) Changes to avgas would require a significant investment by any piston engine aircraft user and manufacturer and would kill an already weakened industry. 4) The aviation community has a pretty strong lobby representing about 1.3 million people. Add all that up and they have been successful is keeping ethanol out and lead in (for the time being). The lead issue is coming to a head rather quickly and there is a lot of work going on to find a cost effective substitute. Scott
  19. Hi Tom, I don't think I ever got back to you on your generator question - sorry about that. I found that the end casting on my 917-A is a different part number than that of your 917-E, so I don't think I can help you out on that part. If you have a Remy 917-E you can rebuild from, I suggest you contact: Jason Smith Advanced Electrical Rebuilders 16574 S. Bauer Rd Grand Ledge, MI 48837 Advanced Electrical Rebuilders - Antique Auto - Marine - Agricultural - Industrial 1-866-228-0218 Scott
  20. For a fan belt you might try Custom Leather Drive Belts-Single-ply (11/64''), up to 4'' wide. You will have to give length and width of the original or measure your application. Scott
  21. The Remy distributor was designed with an elongated slot on the top plate to allow the driver to fully control spark advance/retard through movement of the plate on which the points are affixed. With the introduction of spark advance, through the addition of the centrifugal weights and springs which advances the spark as engine speed increases, it became unnecessary for the driver to advance spark while increasing speed. A recessed pocket and washer was added to restrict movement and allowed the same top plate to be used with several different distributor designs (those with and without centrifugal advance). So, in short, the washer was there to limit the amount of spark advance or retard that could be requested by the driver. My Light Six has the same washer and the spark lever on the steering wheel is used only to retard spark during start and then the lever is fully advanced and allows the centrifugal advance to take over while driving. The washer is made from steel and is 0.062" thick with an ID of 0.382" and an OD of 0.662". I have a spare if you don't want to make one and a few other distributor parts if needed.

  22. The only stable fuel over the years has been aviation gasoline. No ethanol and still has tetraethyl lead (1.2-2 grams/gallon). Expensive at $5.20 - $5.70/ gallon currently.
  23. That's for sure. A lot of airplanes don't have air filters either. The helicopter manufacturers quickly figured out the error in their ways and added air filters early on.
  24. My two cents: Filters are absolutely better to have. That said, I would personally not add an oil filter to your car. Air filter is an absolute yes - something you can remove and install the original parts while showing. Reasoning: Most of the dirt and grit that gets into an engine and causes excessive wear comes through the air induction system. From there it gets into your cylinders (highest wearing part of the engine) and eventually your oil. The other oil contaminants come from the burning of fuels and wearing of metal parts which are much smaller particles, much less damaging and are often not able to be filtered out. I can tell you that the oil in my diesel tractor, which has an oil filter, turns black in an hour from all the fine carbon particles created by combustion, but no engine damage is done due to the size of these particles. Yes, today's oils are vastly superior to the 1930 oils and you can easily keep your oil clean by performing more frequent oil changes. Now if you plan on driving several thousand miles per year, then you may want to consider an oil filter. But if you are like me and drive hundreds of miles per year, then I suggest you keep your car as original as possible. FYI - There are still a lot of piston engine airplanes and helicopters flying around without oil filters. They just have 25 hour oil change recommendations instead of the 50 hour recommendations when equipped with an oil filter. Scott
