    Question about 1931-1932 Cabriolet Laundau Bar Spacers

    They are very different on my 31 Chevrolet Cabriolet. Much shorter at the top. I think I got new ones from a friend that was reproducing them. I can see if he has more if your interested. Dave

    Show me your Foliage!

    Not a lot of color, trying to scare the spiders out of the old roadster.

    Which spark plug for 1956 322

    Most of my old AC catalogs show 44 or R44 but one does show " or R44S extended tip" . You didn't say what number was in it but going up one heat range to the currently available R45 might be worth a try. You should also be able to find R44S on ebay if you watch for them. Years ago the extended tip was considered by many has half a heat range hotter. Dave

    1925 Chevrolet Superior 171ci 4 Cyl Run issues

    SBlomquist, What company is selling the coil you described? Thanks Dave

    My info shows 52 - 54 Chevrolet cars and trucks. Superseded by AC 4149 which also references Case and Sheppard Diesel. Dave
  8. The flip cap oiler is on the bearing it self. I am holding it open in the picture below. The early throw out bearings had replaceable carbon and the ones like that in my stock have no oiler. I suppose those were the type to put in oil but I don't know. Does the squealing last for just a second or continue all the time the clutch is in? Was it making noise before, why did you replace? Dave
  9. Was it making noise before replacing the throw out bearing? If it is a nos bearing (not a ball bearing type) I have been told it is good to apply oil in the flip cap for a period of time so it gets to the bearing material. Some say to soak it in oil but I have not tried that. It seems to me if the clutch is pushed in the pilot bearing is being used not the throw out bearing but I may not be thinking it through. Dave

    34 Cherolet VIN issue

    When the California Highway Patrol inspected my 31 they were not impressed with the nailed on PA serial tag but I showed them a plate that the previous owner had riveted to the frame with the same number. They passed it with no problems. Dave

    1929 Chev Landaulet

    Chevrolet car sales were strong for the new six and remained so for Chevrolet until late in 1931. I think the researchers also though that Chevrolet sent one to each dealer for a traffic builder which would help the number. Dave

    Need carb manifold for 1932 Buick 8

    I am sorry to hear of your troubles. I have never heard of James Hoade but you should let the editor know so he is not being recommended to anyone else. One other place to try is where I bought mine for the 31. They bought a large quantity of parts, mostly Packard, and have sold them here and on ebay. Might be a 32 Buick part in there? Rick Lyon 518-637-1560. Dave ps You might try putting a wanted add in the Buick section below, may get other leads if nothing else.

    1929 Chev Landaulet

    The current estimate by those doing the research is 15,000 +. I think they have accounted for at least a 100 or so survivors. The theory is the 294/300 number came from just the Flint plant and a shorter than actual production period. Cars from almost all plants have been found. Dave
