  1. I am glad that helps. Rhode Island wire has the armored wire and the tubing, and I believe Restoration Supply has the correct ring terminals. Mark H
  2. For what it is worth - I am restoring a 29 M roadster that has some original wire which I am replacing. From what I could tell, the non armored wire under the dash was all a tan cloth covered wire - no identifying colors. The armored wire which ran along the inside frame through wood support blocks was a black cloth covered wire. The original terminations at the terminals appeared to be a cloth covered insulation that covered the end of the armoring (which was cut approx 1/2" from where the insulation was stripped) and covered the end of the terminal where the wire was soldered to the rin
  3. I think this would have been only my 5th year. I too feel everybody's pain. The great weather doesnt help either. The only good thing that happened is that my nephew decided to get married this Friday after numerous failed attempts due to cancellations- so I would have had to cut out Thursday night. I think that would have been more disappointing than not going at all!! I told him he had better make this marriage work - if he ever got married again on Hershey week I wouldn't be there....
  4. If the rear axle of the blackhawk is the same as an M - then yes the axle will need to be removed. There should be two seals - an inner seal that keeps the differential oil from getting into the wheel bearings, and a grease seal that keeps grease from getting into the rear brakes. George Holman offers adapters and seals.
  5. What a pretty paint job ---- too bad it doesnt function properly ....
  6. I finally found my 1929 Stutz sales brochure. See paragraph regarding use of chromium.
  7. I believe the first year for Stutz chrome was 1929 1928 BB would be nickel.
  8. Yep - I received the notice yesterday also. It is a shame due to the fact that it was about the only source that went into some detail on how to actually do something on a car. Compared to the pathetic car shows that are on now thanks to Motortrend, I dont even bother trying to find any useful information off any of these total wastes of time shows. Unfortunately I renewed my subscription for 2 years back in September. I like the comment about filing a claim, but due to the fact that they are broke I would suspect I would have a better chance of seeing Bigfoot hitchhiking befor
  9. Thanks everybody for all the information. I would love to get a picture of the engine to see if its similar to the 12 cylinder engine Enger used. That is a fantastic hearse!
  10. Does anyone know if any of the 12 cylinder National cars exist? Would be interested also in any literature detailing the 12 cylinder engine that was used by National. Thanks in advance. Mark H
  11. Wheels for the World is a very difficult read at times, but gives a relatively unbiased look at Henry Ford from many angles. As most people with incredible power and wealth came a feeling of dominance. He became a hero offering $5 a day for work when half of that was customary, yet later became an employee adversary when he felt threatened by the power given to unions by the federal government. His son Edsel did not embrace his lifestyle or values, so was heavily chastised by his father to the point that it probably adversely affected his health. His views on Judism stemmed from his intens
  12. Has anyone else received this AACA "trinket" in the mail from this sender? I received it with no note - was wondering if someone else was supposed to get it. Thanks, Mark H
  13. What a great time everyone (at least everyone I spoke to) had this year. If people are losing interest in this hobby it sure didn't show here! I too want to thank all of the volunteers that make this such a great event. I especially want to thank the crossing guards that literally risk their lives stopping the traffic on a very busy road hundreds of times a day. I know I made NUMEROUS trips across the road carrying all sorts of stuff . Thanks again to everyone - already looking forward to next year!!
  14. Thanks for the great pictures Annie. You definitely captured the essence of the whole Hershey experience. Beautiful blue skies, full moon and tons of great stuff and great cars to look at!!
