  1. At one time Costco sold a covered temporary garage and they may still sell it but I haven't looked. I bought one and it really worked out until I could get a real garage for a new car addition. It was a metal pole framework covered by a tan tarp. Due to the sun and Santa Ana winds I replaced the cover once after about a year and a half. I was able to mostly hide it from the street and neighbors so there were no problems. Dave
  2. I was helping a friend get his car started. He said he did not change anything from when it ran but we could not get spark. Turns out he did put new spark plug wires on it and they were not solid wire but suppression type wires. We put solid wires back on and it ran. Something to check if you run out of things. Dave
  3. A similar problem just came up on the vcca site, might be of some help; https://vccachat.org/ubbthreads.php/topics/427023/water-pump-bush.html#Post427023 Dave
  4. Mercer, Any luck on the seats?
  5. I have used model airplane dope to seal old cork floats. It was a common suggestion on the old outboard sites. Dave
  6. Thanks Curti I think I asked him sometime ago but will try again. Dave
  7. Looking for a rumble / deck lid tee handle for a 31/32 Chevrolet Cabriolet or Coupe. The originals had a round sliding lid that covered the lock. Best picture I could find; Thanks, Dave
  8. I guess you never found the parts you were selling? Dave
  9. 2006 Chevy Duramax with Allison tranny. Pulls great and with 242,000 still going strong. Dave
  10. Can you send a photo of your seats to doc81709@yahoo.com? 30 - 31 wheels are 19 inch while 32 are 18 inch. Dave
  11. One more, I was cleaning out the trunk of my 39 Chevy and I found the original cable I took off many years ago. It is marked GM. Dave
  12. They really did not have what is now known as a vin. The serial number plate was usually located on the passenger side sill slightly in front of the seat. They are often lost but many vehicles were registered / titled by the engine number. You should see a raised boss with numbers stamped into it on the fuel pump side of the engine. Depending on the year of the motor in your car it should be near the fuel pump or distributor. Dave
  13. There should be a casting number on the back side, sometimes hard to find. Indented rather than protruding. Dave
  14. I have a 146-71 heat riser that is suppose to be a 1930. Let me know .$100 including shipping. Dave
  15. somorgujo, sent you a private message.
  16. Looks like two responses , the one from Alex I did not see. Alex, if you still want it I still have it. Somorgujo I need to wait on Alex for a few days I will let you. Sorry for the delay. Dave
  17. Interesting, mine want to close and must be held open when the stat is not working. Dave
  18. C87 is the current plug number and the filling station has them. Why not call them up and swap them out? Dave
  19. It looks just like the one in my 39, I have no idea on what a 40 looks like. Dave
  20. If keiser's suggestion doesn't do it I would try an office supply store and look at their clear brief covers that come in many colors.
  21. The ground strap on my 31 Chevy has a bow tie logo on the terminal. Oddly it is on the bottom when the strap was installed. Dave
  22. I would ask on the VCCA site just to be sure of what was going on in 57. Dave
  23. Sorry I wasn't clear. For example when my Cabriolet (1931) was made all Cabriolet bodies were made in the Cleveland Fisher body plant then shipped to the other assembly plants. I am suggesting if the op has a low volume body it is possible they were not made near the assembly plant. This has been discussed on the VCCA site but I don't remember if it went to 57. Of course the op could have a high volume body and that would be something else.
