  1. Stewart Kevin BC here - Try "Scots Old Auto Rubber" - thats where I got my set from, and they fit perfectus - I think the price along side is an error or for the item above
  2. Kevin here again Have a look on the internet at "Classic Fasteners " in Adelaide, they have a good selection of RH slot screws in Nickel, and might even have the metal threads or similar . Kevin
  3. Kevin here again , checked my supplies can't help as only have raised head. Its interesting that you have X head screws , I guess they are for screwing into the metal, where here in Aus we still had wood frames and all screws were wood screws, no metal threads at all, so another difference between our cars Kevin
  4. Mpgp1999 I had lots of trouble getting the right screws for my Dodge 1930 DC 8 here in Australia, when i needed them, I finished up finding good suppliers in England, have lost the name now but there were quite a few suppliers over there of specialist wood screws, My requirements were Raised head Screwdriver Slot Brass Chrome plated Here in Aus 99% of screws have cross slots these days one struggles to get a screw with a slot in it, then they are chinese & not the quality of the English ones I'll see if I can dig up the docket, with a name on it, but if you search the net you will find one of them, Price was reasonable about $10 Aus /100 I may have your No 6 roundhead, I'll check & let you know regards Kevin
  5. Ken Kevin here from SAus Can you give us a picture of your drums, I may have some earlier drums if they are the same, give me some measurements aswell Kevin
  6. Tom Yes they are still available, my email is"" if you want to contact me we can finalise payment & delivery regards Kevin BC
  7. Darrell Checked out the postage to the states from Aus $50 Aus, which is $37 US, so if you want these I'll make it $110 US all up. Kevin BC
  8. Darrell Hi Today is Sunday here , will check out the postage tomorrow for you. Could not reply to your message via the website Don’t know what they are off, bought them at a swap meet , thinking I could use them on my 1930 Dodge8 Phaeton, but the phaeton has cup holders where the hood sits in a cup arrangement & is strapped into the holder, so they are not appropriate for my use & I have been sitting on them wondering if anyone needed them for some time. They may be a generic brand as most Aust phaetons seemed to use this type , as most brands of cars were either assembled by Holden’s or Richards Body builders here, and had generic parts used on all makes Will get back to you tomorrow. The securing sleeves are easy to make , some brass rod cut into two pieces at 45 degrees, and the brass threaded to take a holding bolt, it the same securing method as the cup holders on my car. Regards Kevin BC
  9. Newbie I have a pair of top rest saddles, that are available if they are of any use to you, they would be slightly later than the ones you show I reckon, but are good solid units. I am from Australia downunder, so I would want $75 US plus freight for them regards Kevin BC
  10. Hi Kevin BC here Can you please verify if they are single action or double action If double action will mount horizontal, if single will mount vertical. I need double action regards Kevin
  11. Hi guys The Australian Dodges in this area have 3 boards(3/4 inch thick) that are butted together and sit in 2 channels that go from the floor up to the firewall at about 40 deg. There is a couple of cutouts in the top one for the pedals to operate, and then it was all carpeted, and had a large rubber plate around the pedals , and steering column. When I say the boards were butted together, they did have a half overlap groove in each edge to stop moisture from getting in, which also stops any board from sagging . Australia used boards in their floors, but I believe US cars used plywood, is this correct? regards Kevin BC
  12. Spinneyhill Your right - Seniors moment, thinking about something else, try OLDERA, been working with Centrelink regards "New Start Allowance", got New on the brain. Kevin
  13. Ric Google a company called "New ERA Services" in Australia, they produce material for making a new windscreen, in brass, might be of use to you Kevin
  14. Spinneyhill You are right about the wire wheels, it would make it easier with the wires off, would give you more room to work around the backing plate, makes me look more forward to the day when I have to do the brakes on my DC Tourer, but that's a long way off yet. regards Kevin BC
  15. When adjusting1930 Dodge DC DD brakes, and possibly other models, on the rear, the front adj nut lines up with the spring shackle, not enough room to get a standard socket in, and then you cant hold the bolt to do the nut up anyway. I have found a spanner that makes the job easier. Called a "Crowsfoot " spanner it is as the picture shows a cutoff open ender, with a 3/8 socket extension hole. As seen fits inside the backing plate neatly & bolt can be held with large screwdriver whilst nut is done up, taking lots of frustration away.Hope this idea makes it easier for someone else out there who has probally uttered profanities when trying to adjust the brakes of this era Mopars Kevin BC
