  1. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hMsRJrlbyMI. Has anyone any details on this? or seen it? I'd love to see the drawings/operation. Tom
  2. Need one - but interested in more - wheel stud. This is a LH thread - havent chased it but looks like 3/4-16. Any clues? And the nut. Thanks, Tom
  3. How do the Buicks and Chryslers compare or feather into this comparison?
  4. Wow. I guess not surprising. for those who have not attended the annual mtg, it is a really good time. Relaxing. Get to get caught up with friends. it is a fun start to the year.
  5. Was that body wood-framed? when it was removed, would the running boards, fenders, hood and radiator shell been removed and kept as parts though separated?
  6. Back in the day, feed did come in 100 lb sacks. For about the past 15-20 years, it is 50lb. Growing up on a farm, when we did visit the feed store, you would load as much as you could. ( PU truck) so much that even driving slowly, when you’d hit a bump, front tires kind of lost contact. Hard to steer. But it was all back and secondary roads. looking back, it was kind of hairy. Just never thought of it and never recall my family ever saying anything but ‘ maybe shouldn’t have had such a load’. Then you’d do the same thing next time.
  7. Start with a dollar bill. A dollar is 4.4 thousandths. Five folds and there you have it. tom
  8. If it were me.... I'd research what the car was expected to do/perform in the day. Radial tires can help the ride and don't really effect things too much. An OD - can certainly increase top end - but consider the SYSTEM. Don't want to run away from the brakes. Add an OD or change the gearing - be sure the brakes can handle it and you can stop properly.
  9. closed body types - on the right front sill open body type - right front seat frame commercial - on front of dash. first one or two numbers are the factory where the vehicle was built. then two letters - BA is Confederate, ( all cars), BE - 1/2 ton truck, N with another letter is commercial trucks. Howard has a beautiful special sedan. It was the feature car on the Gettysburg Founders tour. 2018? Tom
  10. Send a picture of the pit and frame and some scale of the thickness ( original). As Mssrs capngrog and F&J said, the repair can be done but needs to be done properly. There is techniques to repair problems on members. It involves 'killing' the issue, some reweld and adding a diamond stiffener(s).
  11. Yes. Several big downpours that lasted maybe 30 minutes in the 1929 Chrysler. Making sure the window was previously treated with rainex really helped as the wiper couldn't even begin to keep up. It was exciting! Sheri and I had to close the vents, and crack open windows, windscreen and side vents as water would comein, etc. It really fogged up and on the inside - with no defroster - we just wiped the condensation away. The problem is the designs of the day - the windscreen opened up, the dash metal was formed to bring air downward- one gets pretty wet, so you close the windscreen and it
  12. I recognize Mr. Michael Hoegl in the 1913 Benz WB. Wonderful gentleman. Amazing car. Tom
  13. He was a truly gentle person. A really knowledgeable guy on technology and well-grounded in physics. I always looked for - and liked seeing - his byline. Please pass along to all our Digger friends that his Yank friends are grieving.
  14. Sheri and I look forward to seeing you and Lynn.
