  1. This does it for me. A 27 hudson at the Reynolds Museum in Alberta
  2. A convertible on top as well as the bottom.
  3. Can you post a picture of your damaged block?
  4. Curious as to why you think it’s rare ? it’s not North American I would say. length? Width ? Serial # stamped on the chassis? Where are you from ? Where did you find it ? More info is needed to help you.
  5. I have friends that tear the engine to bits for one small oil leak or a tick. Thousands of dollars spent and time not driving. my 46 Hudson 8 truck has 12 thou taper in the bores , it’s smoked a bit, it’s a little noisy. I have new .30 over pistons to go in it. Have had for a while. I keep an eye on the bottom end. I‘ll drive it till either power loss is an problem or it’s to embarrassing. It’s also fun to just keep them going.
  6. If you have an I phone, it is easy to upload pics to this site.
  7. I do. A lumber yard. sorry , but there are no kits for any Hudson / Essex. If you have the old wood to make patterns from , basic hand tools and skills is all you need for the later cars.
  8. Essex was not 20” in 1929
  9. Try any store in Canada since about 1913. It’s truly incomprehensible and utterly inconceivable that you all haven’t figured out the Robetson screw yet.
  10. R Holden , I’ve sent you a PM
  11. My 29 and 28 Hudson , same as above full retard , 1/4 throttle , full choke , 3 crank revolutions, push choke in half way and it starts every time when the choke is at the half way mark. Has been like that on the 29 for the 30 years if had it and for 25 years before that that my dad had it. every single time. But ... when it doesn’t it’s time to check the points or battery terminals and connections.
  12. Even Duct Tape can’t fix Stupid
  13. The only thing I dislike are the way to small wheels and those hideous ww’s i would sell them fancy wheels to pay for the proper sized wires with black walls and re shape the rear fenders. JMO
  14. From my neighborhood today on Pender Island BC , Canada.
  15. Try pulling the bottom hose off the radar from the block and sticking your garden hose in the filler neck. Water should flow out a a good rate. If not , your rad is plugged or to effective for the age of your car.
  16. Do you know if your thermostat works ? when it was in , was it facing the right direction?
  17. Up draft or down draft ? I’ve done it to both. And the only negative is that on the updraft it takes forever to warm up an I get carb ice certain times of the year. (West coast of Canada). On the down draft I notice no difference. Fuel is much better these days and not so fussy on warm air, but as said above depends on where you live for warm uptime.
  18. Russian? French ? Love the stamped artillery style wheels.
  19. Hi Xander, hows your move going? This is just a reminder about the 46/47 parts we were discussing back in May. Paul
  20. Those are pin drives and not lug nuts. Hudson went to lug nuts in 29. They could be for a 28 hudson but I’m not sure if hudson used 19” in 28. In 29 yes.
  21. The 254 8 over the 212 all day long , but the 262 and the 308 trumps all. I have the 8 in my 46 truck and love it. Peppy and fun to drive. Looks great under the hood.
  22. Third from left is a1930 Greater 8 Hudson.
  23. And not necessary with today’s fuel.
