  1. Sound like a good diagnostic, I will try this very soon and let you know the result... Great day. JJ.
  2. Hi Craig. Good point. I have a 1950 Champion, so I'm going to swap the distributors and see if it solve the issue. Thanks for your help. JJ
  3. Hello all, I'm currently working on my 1960 Lark VI and can't succeed to have the engine running on all cylinders, the dead cylinder moving from one to another with no way to understand what moves the problem between them. I first believed the the problem laid in ignition issue, but after I changed all parts (plugs, cap, rotor, points, condenser, wires and coil) and took more attention to set each part better than I have ever done before, it improve a little bit, but still not OK. The best I can have is the engine running on "5 1/2" cylinder. I also cleaned and set the carb with not more success. When the engine is at temperature, I have a noise coming from the distribution gears that make me feel it could create a camshaft offset. Now the questions I have for you are the following ones: Could a valve play not accurate create this kind of issue? Could a worn timing gear fools the engine or should this "switch off" the engine once the issue is severe enough? On the Net, I found several camshaft gears, but no crankshaft one. the camshaft one being in fibre, does that mean that it is the only one that usually wear out? The car left inactive for more than two years before I bought it. Is there something that the time could have caused? Any idea will be more than welcome.......... Many many thanks in advance for your advises. Have a great day all. JJ
  4. Hello, I just bought a 1929 Model AA a few weeks ago and found that there was some water mixed with the oil. I thus replaced the head gasket, and (visually but carefully) checked during that operation that there was no damage on the block or the head themselves. I torqued the head at 60 lbs (30 lbs, then 40, then 50 and 60, I'm sure you all know that and do the same) and did it a second time after the first run. The problem is that I still have water in the oil and just don't understand where it can come from. Any idea on what can cause this?? Thanks a lot in advance for any advise or comment. JJ Tevel
  5. Morning all, I just bought a 1926 AA model truck and was looking for any type of factory or workshop manuals. Could someone tell me where is the best site to download them? Thanks in advance for your help and have a great day. JJ TEVEL
  6. Hello all, I'm currently working on my 1960 Lark VI which was assembled in Belgium (where I live), ans I need to rebuild the entire exhaust line. Does anyone have some sort of in formation on par numbers and suppliers I could contact for or some drawing I could follow to built it from universal parts. Thanks a lot in advance for your help and support. JJ

  8. Hi, As you can see on these pictures, the headlight bowl and reflector are OK, but I'm missing the trim and the fixture (3 first pictures) that hold the lens on it (I have the lens). Many thanks in advance for your answer. Have a great day. JJ
  9. Morning all, I'm looking for a trim and a fixture for the head lamp lenz of my 1925 Standard Six. If any body has one set for sale or know where it can be found, I will greatly appreciate your help and support on this. Have a GREAT day all. JJ

  14. Good morning all, I have an issue with my Manhattan 1952 overdrive solenoid and need to change it. I found a AC Delco ( Item 1118134) that I would like to fit on in replacement, but this one gets 4 terminals connections instead of the two on my original one. Should somebody have a wiring diagram I could use, or could somebody tell me the terminal numbers I need to use to connect it. Many thanks in advance to all for your help on this. JJ.
  15. Sorry for not being clear enough. I'm a French speaking person (from Belgium) and might have put to much trouble in my post. I'm not looking for te part anymore as I had it printed already. My post was just to communicate to those who are looking for the same kind of part that the person who made mine could help them. Sorry again for the confusion. Great day to all.......... JJ.
