  1. Matt if you le3ave Monday you should be here by weekend
  2. Doug I will get my secretary to post a picture of the one that I will be using Its a Massey 135 and and a Massey Furgusson borer
  3. I made no progress on the roller today as I had a 150 mile round trip to pick up a SUV for my nephew and the I picked up a 135 Massey Fergy tractor equipt with a post hole auger I have 7 6inch polls to stand up with about 12 feet out of the ground It is not an urgent job and I want to see some more rain to make the sand wetter so I wont have cave ins Hopefully I will complete the roller tomorrow and give it a trial run with some half inch steel conduit Keep your eyes on here for some pictures Doug I will get the skinny bloke to operate the steering wheel
  4. Just because I am 5 feet high and 4 feet across there is no need to be cheeky
  5. They are repairable If your "body man" can cut and join two different panels he should be able to repair them
  6. Hi John, How thick is that strap From the way it looks in the photo it is thinner on the edges than in the middle I am needing some 1 1/4 wide by 1/4 high The top is rounded
  7. That RHS one would have been a tricky little bugger to make mate On mine there is a short piece of tube About half inch long that is spot welded on the holes at the sump side so that the pan clears the rest of the sump bolts does yours have them ?
  8. Hey Matt If I send my side plate over can you put some of that shining silver stuff on it ha ha
  9. The DA 6 side plates are completely different to the Seniors If I could buy one I would have This one being in Brass and Copper will out last me and the car
  10. I folded a piece of copper then cut it out for the ends ,bent them down into shape then silver soldered them together
  11. If that piece was bolted down and the damaged area brazed up then re-machined it would out last another 3 transmission rebuilds
  12. I don't think so Anthony I am going to thoroughly clean both surfaces Tin them with solder then sweat the two together I am hoping that the sweat seals the joint as my concern is that it may leak around the screw holes One suggestion that was made to me was to just put a flat plate on the engine but as you can see it is designed to take cold water from the water pump to the rear cylinders I should have it ready to solder up by the end of the day but I won't be able to complete the job until the hole punch arrives later next week We will keep you posted on how it goes
  13. Can the damaged area be welded then re machined?
  14. Doesn't that model have running board supports?
  15. Hey mate didn't mean to be picky but remember you picked up on the screws in my indercators Love the work that you are doing

  18. Hello Paul No cobber I am not a member of the Buick Club I have taken on the job of redoing the timber framework of the body and it has been hard as I only have 3 pictures The work that was done previously was very substandard I am slowly sorting out the jigsaw I do need pictures of the dickey seat hinges though
  19. I am working on a 29 Standard Roadster that has a Holden body Is there any one in Australia that has restored one and has photos of the woodwork for the last 4 feet of the body Also photos of the hinges that Holden used for the Dicky seat Others have had a go at this car and its a bit of a mess. Need photos of the main bearers that run along the chassis and any cross timbers as well Thanks Ron
  20. Glad to hear that the day was awesome A real bummer breaking an axle though they make a handsome pair there together I squeezed a fart out of the Senior this morning to sort out a generator that was not charging Lucky for me it was dirty contacts in the cut out Setting up to make a new side plate /water jacket for the engine The one that I made back in 1980 has rusted through So a new one out of brass is in order
