  1. Do your research before you commit to buying one. They changed a fair bit over the short run of those little F heads. The later years were de tuned at the factory. The early ones will blow the doors of the 22 and 23. The internals are very different Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Likely plugged passages on low speed jets. Those Carter's are very fussy and complicated. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Is your Nash pressure fed, or a splasher? That will make a difference in pressure readings. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Nice truck! Most of the vehicles listed below get driven every day ( one at a time of course ) They were built to be driven. The problem is they were not built to stop. Keep your distance and like West says " plan your escape route". Enjoy your truck, its a beauty.
  5. Congrats again Barry, Your on the front page of the "old Motor" this morning. Looks like some very happy faces inside the car. PS.. looks good in the rain.
  6. That's funny. I have two Berry's that work for me. Been writing them cheques for years. I get major flak from them when I write their cheques out to " Barry"
  7. Job well done to you and your team Berry !!! The colours are perfect. This has been the most fascinating thread, and I thank you for taking the time to share it with us. Good luck at Pebble.
  8. Looking very good Gary. Those wheels look amazing !! Be very careful as to who builds your radiator. Will you be running at atmosphere?
  9. Quick Shifter, you should listen to these guys. I know they sound a lot like the old man harping on you, but they are right. If you want a factory hot rod, get a Hudson !!!
  10. Are you sure that's a 60, and not a 59?
  11. That's usually a bad muffler or no muffler. Or an exhaust leak. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. And check plug gap. I go 3 to 5 over specs on 50 year plus motors. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Barry, only for curiosity can you explain the decision to use base/ clear for paint. Also would it be possible to continue to post photos in Black and White ? We all know the scheme but this would hide the colour. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I was going to say it was off a Harley service trike until I saw the gas tank under it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Can you tell us more about the corn grease you put in trans. Will the spinning gears not just displace the grease? Or does it flow when warm? This is one of the best threads on any form. Thank you for sharing !!!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. And after he lost all his penny's for not being wiser , He had to seek out a design job, and work for keiser Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. JRA You can get the glass tub from a Medical supply company and have a glass shop cut it to length for you. Cut your own washers from rubber or felt, they go on the top. Do not over tighten the large screw. It sure looks like to me that your float is in the tube. I think I can see the ball. Remove the large screw retainer on the top of the casting, and look down the glass and see if you can see the top ball on the float. If it is in there, try to lift it out. Once it is out, inspect the float and clean it. They stick all the time inside the tube that goes in to the pan and are not that reliable in my opinion. I have many super sixes and never look at the float, I use my own dipstick as described in my first post. PS. A 29 hudson, in good order, will blow the doors of your Chrysler. Get ready to have a big smile on your face.
  18. Welcome to the ownership of a Great car. 1929 is the first year for Hudson for an electric oil level indicator. You activate it buy pushing the button on the bottom of the instrument cluster. When depressed, it turns your fuel level gauge into an oil level gauge.( It may not work check the wires behind the gauge ). All the gauge will read is empty or full. I do not rely on the gauge at all. I have a 3/8 wooden dowel that I use as a dip stick that I keep in the car. When inserted into the OIL FILL hole, It should read oil at 2.25 inches from the bottom of the dowel. When the pan and troughs are properly full. Use a good multi grade oil, 15-40 is what I use on all the old cars. What body style is your hudson? We love pictures on this sit!
  19. I hope you never restore that body. Beautiful truck !

  23. If any one is interrested in Hudson tid-bits, The term " Speedster" came in and out of Hudson history. In the early years the term was used as we all think of, a Speedster. That term was dropped by Hudson in 1917. All open cars made by Hudson were called Phaeton's, 4 seats or 7 untill 1923. Thats when we see the term Speedster come in to the Hudson marketing world by Hudson. The beautifull car we have for sale on this post was sold as a Phaeton. For those that are interrested ,this car is a first series 1921. The last for gate H gear box, This is the last series the gas pedal was in the center of the pedals, and the last time for no splash aprons in front of the radiator. The second series had a make over. A compleat dash board change, fenders as well, A heat tube cross over on the carb/ manifold, And afew more changes. A question..... what was the first car to be called a pheaton?
