  1. I believe I have the speedo that you are looking for. I am in Florida until April 3rd but my parts are in Mass. If you email me on the 3rd, I can look and see what condition it is in. If it’s broken, I can cast a new lower unit in bronze. Wayne Elsworth yachtflame@yahoo.com
  2. Flex-seal is silicone. I’ve had problems with its ability to adhere to things. It’s not as good as the TV ads say! If you plan to use something like silicone, dilute regular RTV silicone with naphtha, this makes it water thin and can then be brushed or sprayed. Depending on the amount of naphtha used, you have 10 to 15 minutes working time with it before it evaporates off and is normal silicone again. I’ve used this method on molds when building boats. Clean, smooth and nothing sticks to it!
  3. Ok, Dynamat it is. Thank you all for your input! Wayne
  4. My thought is that it would quite down noise and vibration with minimal added weight. The car has some kind of tar based coating in the doors and roof top now. Just trying to stay semi original. wayne
  5. I’m redoing the inside of a 1948 Jaguar MK V saloon. I’ve stripped it down to bare metal. Wire brushed it and acid bathed with ospho. Once dry, I wire brushed it again the painted with rust converting spray paint. I’m thinking of now spraying undercoating to seal it all but I’m worried that the smell of tar might stay with it. Has anyone done this that can advise on lingering smell? I’d hate to drive the wife around hearing about an awful smell! Wayne Elsworth
  6. I have a friend that is seriously looking for a disc wheel for his ‘29 Lasalle. I’ve been trying to help him find one but have exhausted all of my sources. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Wayne Elsworth 413-658-4416 yachtflame@yahoo.com
  7. Do you have any of the three part distributer caps? wayne 413-658-4416 yachtflame@yahoo.com
  8. Hey Mike, how are you doing? Im just gathering parts for future projects. Wayne
  9. If you are going to the trouble of making a plastic copy to then cast in aliminum, find out the % of shrinkage first and have the CAD scan incorporate that into the file. I cast a lot of parts in bronze and it shrinks 3%, not too bad on small parts but when doing things like dash surround trim, it has shrunken enough to make a bad fit. Just my thoughts. Wayne Elsworth
  10. Looking for old sealed oil filters with fittings on the top, used around 1926-1940. They look like large soup cans with the two tube fittings on the top. Wayne Elsworth 413-658-4416 yachtflame@yahoo.com
  11. I’m looking for broken interior door handles and window cranks with nuts and knobs. I reuse these when making newly cast units. If you need new handles, I give a core value for your old ones. Also looking for old sealed oil filters used or not. contact: Wayne Elsworth 413-658-4416 yachtflame@yahoo.com
  12. Any one know if this car is still available?
  13. Hi, if the filter is still available, I’d love to have it. wayne Elsworth 75 Cushman Rd Leverett, MA 01054 413-658-4416
  14. I have a double pilot Ray light set that came off a 1932 Packard. The unit works and is in excellent shape with no scratches or dents. Very nice detail on the top inscription. Comes with rods, pitman clamp and pivot. $2,800. More pictures and info if wanted. Contact Wayne at 413-658-4416 or yachtflame@yahoo.com
