  1. This one may be over kill but I am going to try it .At 300A continuous , 2000A intermittent it should handle 6 v. It is heavy, feels close to a pound. Cole-Hersee 75908-BX Dave
  2. My Grandfather used the 21 Dodge as a tractor and powered his saw mill with the rear drivers side wheel. The 39 is still in the same condition as it is in the photo taken about 1951 and used often . Dave
  3. The NCRS has detailed information and judging manuals. Since you are going to restore to their standards that is where I would go. https://www.ncrs.org/shop/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=65_34&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIivSsuKSF5gIVrSCtBh1MvArKEAAYASAAEgIRz_D_BwE
  4. Kids love them and I can see the advantages of dating. My mother rode in one from Long Island to Estes Park in 1934 she was 20. Wish I could ask her about that adventure.
  5. My 31 66s does not make that knocking sound but many of the other sounds are familiar. My oil pressure is a little higher on the gauge, 30 at idle and about 40 going down the road. Are you running the original fan bearing with the oil and pump inside? Dave
  6. This is an interesting thread. My 31 60 series appears to be an original survivor. Valve cover, side plates and many other accessories are black but the block and head do not appear to be olive green. It has more blue in it than I would think olive would have. The vehicle has 44,000 miles and the body, interior, and chassis are clearly original. I suppose anything could have happened over the years and the paint may have changed color. I am interested in opinions. Thanks Dave

    No idea on what it would cost but you can do it yourself. If the harness you have is marked and the instructions are still there it is not too difficult. If the old harness is still in the car and you don't have the instructions, take a lot of pictures, make notes, and try to do a section at a time. The wiring diagram for the car is also very helpful and can usually be found in the shop manual or maybe on line. If you can determine who made the harness, YnZ , Rhode Island, or some other company, they may be able to provide instructions. Dave
  8. The second switch, the Cole-Hersee, is rated 2000a intermittent. Would that work with 6 volts? Dave
  9. No cross on the M-744 which seems odd, maybe a high output performance pump? 95-41348 various ford products with 6.6 , 69-78. M 4385 various ford 67-76 6.4. Using an AC cross reference which is not the best way for application. The 95- NAPA numbers were supplied to them by ACDelco so the suffix is the ACDelco number. Dave
  10. They look just like the 31-32 GM Cabriolet passenger door ashtray. Each division seemed to have their own design. John Potter in California is reproducing the Chevrolet design which is plain compared to yours. Dave
  11. Here is a picture from the 1931 Buick sales catalog of a 8-67 with painted wood wheels and pinstripes. Most of the cars pictured are shown with wire wheels and do look very nice. Dave
  12. I have an unrestored 31 60 series with 44,000 miles It has had some paint touch up over the years so I really don't know if this is the original treatment or not but would guess it is. Dave
  13. The Standard in 33 used the smaller motor as he described. I know of one in southern California if that is close to you send me a PM and I will pass on the phone number. Dave
  14. It shouldn't as long as the body bolts are tight. Is the car on it's wheels, it should be. Dave
  15. Once you determine it is not loose screws ,hinge pins, loose body bolts, or bad wood you can adjust door gap. The Fisher Body manuals and/or your vehicle service manual may explain it. Generally if you add a shim between the body sill and vehicle frame at the bolt nearest to the hinge post it would raise the rear of the door. Dave
