  1. You didn't say whether your cars a daily driver you have for fun or a fully restored beauty... In years past there were numerous additive compounds that swelled up old leaking seals for people who just wanted a few more miles out of the old buggy that wasn't worth rebuilding the transmission in...(or, nowadays, when the leak worsens, selling the car to a restorer who has deeper pockets0... I'll get brickbats for suggesting such Mickey-Mousing, but i used a good quantity of that stuff myself, for both transmissions and power steering, and when the old jalopies died it wasn't becuse of transmissions or power steerings going out...
  2. My set refuses to blow up your pic, but I think it says 19L...many thxx!!
  3. (1) which engine is in the Coupe?? (2) Does the for sale engine have an ID tag?? Many thxx!! Bud
  4. This sort of post is always simply amazing.... Apparently the seller has no idea of what they fit, or could be fitted to, seemingly has no interest in trying to find out, so leaves a prospective buyer all the wok of trying to ID, with no idea if price would be affordable if he found he could actually use it... My apologies, of course, if this's just part of a longtime game among old friends...
  5. Hey, these old cars had an ammeter---what's it been saying?? Or had Hudson already gone to on idiot light, like my old 36??? Can't recall what the 34 Tearapieces or the 35 Coupe had,,,all long gone...
  6. As mentioned above, an old McCord catalog lists those for Overland 75-90 of 1916-19, and also their 800lb delivery 1918-19... I'm pretty sure the Willys Clubs include Overland and Whippet, and I saw a facebook page for a Registry that included Willys-Knight, Whippet and Overland, if you're not already in contact...
  7. Don't recall ever hearing on one before pumps were buried in the tank..intermittemt fuel starvation, good fuel pump?? maybe something in tank being sucked over line to pump??? Need desc of actual problem to make intelligent guesses....
  8. Well, the news about the 10E/11E i n't that good nut could be a lot worse... From what I have (admittedly nowhere near complete) the 10E (31/4 bore) was in some 27-28 Jordans and some small Selden and Sterling trucks maybe 28-31... the 11E (33/8 bore) was in some Moon and Reo, same period... More hopeful is that the 10E/11E were part of a series that ran 6E, 10E, 11E, 12E, 14E, 15E to 19E, a mix of the two bores, similar engines as they're listed together for a lot of gaskets and they do share some innards... Jordan also used the 12 and 14 Es, Moon used the 12E and Reo used 15, 16 and 19Es... The 18E had the most listings, all trucks except 1929 Durant model 70, so there four clubs you can check for an engine... It's also possible if no 10E/11E comes available one of the other Es may drop in or be shoehorned in...when dealing with series engines, Cont'l didn't hesitate to ship a similar in the series if the ordered engine wasn't available......,
  9. Bummer for sure, as they used to say... Raises interesting questions as to how well the Plymouth engine fitted (or was fitted) into the Peerless...or is the whole driveline CCptn??? Worse, the 10E/11E Cont;l that was original (per old parts catalogs and above) seems to've been a rather limited engine, but I need to check some more catalogs... So: did Peerless, or Cont'l, have come problem that led Peerless to slip in a few CCptn engines, or is this an aftermarket surgery??? Fascinating...but no doubt a shattering blow for KHR...will advise on the Cont'ls.. With sympathy, Bud OOPS---just remembered: 1942 engine, obviously transplane (senior moment)!!
  10. Yes, definitly a free-standing power unit radiator... If no takers show up here, you might try sites that deal with industrial/Ag stuff, like smokstak , ytmag and so on...
  11. My apologies for not following this thread... The comments above are a perfect illustration as to howcum the parts person sometimes comes up with the wrong parts...ideally, parts people double check if they have more than one source, just in case,..I suppose now there's only one source, the computer readout... In this case only the 631F dist was listed, which I should've specified in my post!... The Chrysler dist's listed were 631A and B, but the points, cap and rotor were also listed for other different dist #s as well..
  12. Those hould be available---per a Shurhit catalog if you've gor a 30 66 6cyl the starter brush als fits some 28-29 LaSalle and some 29-30 Studes....their then (1942) # SB-0.37...
  13. Was that distributor case + innards, or just the innards? Innards might be easier to turn up if your try Chrysler 1928-29 62 6Cyl, 65---per a Shurhit catalog they're the same as your Peerless for points, cap, roror, condenser, coil... Per that catalog your points, cat and rotor are in a batch of other vehicles into the 30s... NOW, that said, parts co's sometimes stock "universals" that fit and work in a number of vehicles, but may not match configuration of OE parts.but lf you need OE parts for show, you can use universals to drive aroind looking for OE...
  14. Not familiar with any of these V8s, but FWIW: (1) Looks like Cole used the same engine 1916-24 per thunbnails in Std Cat V8 1906-2002, which should be named Std Cat Mainline V8s, as has pitifully little on the 1915--20s orphans... one parts catalog lists a different V8 for 1915, not mentioned in Std Cat V8s... (2) if Cole rods above don't work out, may be worth checking the Olds 17-23 rods; piston is different but rod bearing is very close (parets co's 1217,1217A, 1218 for these Olds and Northway engines...
  15. Nothing helpful found...as Case was one of the makes that used both 7N and 9N listed in one catalog as 7N 1917-18 and 9N as 1918-19...you might try to find out if blocks are interchangeable or whole 7N engine would do...if so, post in the old truck sites, too, as 7N was in a lot of trucks, incl Diamond T and GMC (yes, GMC early on used some Cont'ls)......
  16. A mechanic who's been too busy for a year to even come out to take a look and do some of the almost immediate things above usually means he doesn't WANT to take it on for some reason/s...
  17. Is yoiur husband in the business of selling engines??? Seriously, a more precise definition of "a few years" and "so long" wou;fd be helpful as well as if the car sat outside, under a carport, in a building (heated??) and where you live...Alaska is harder on stored cars than Sunny Cal Look on t e bright side...wth a little minor work it may well fire right up and be fine...: OOPS--the above came on while I was typing (i type slow!!)
  18. ET---my, how time flies... To the best of my knowledge this problem is limited to the CT and some (but not all) of the other "C"s... In the various threads on this subject I can't recall any comments from any owners of other Lyc engines noting the same problem, and I seem to recall another "C" owner saying his Auburn (CF) had a cast iron pump.. It should be easy to check---I understand the potmetal pump is a distinctive color...in case anyone asks, SpeedtruckBill did have the info re' the Aussies new pump, and passed it on to the Gardner Club, Gardners having several Cs with this problem For peace of mind, you could make anew post asking this question, as there're lots of Lyc engines...
  19. My apologies for late reply... Yes, it's quite possible your car came with a 19L----Cont'l was quite good, with series engines that were similar, at furnishing a similar engine if there were production glitches or they had a surplus of a similar type they'd provide a little cheaper....that said: My older Std Cat US Cars (there are later, more complete editions) lists Paige 1927 6Cyl models as 5-45 43hP, 6-65 64HP and 6-75 68HP My period catalogs are weak on Paige, but seem to agree the 6-45 had a Cont'l "L" 27/8 bore... A 1930 wrist pin catalog lists a 6-40 for 26-27 (not in Std Cat) with a Cont'l 20L 23/4 bore AND a 6-45 for 1927 with a Cont'l 28L of 27/8 bore Your car could have an ID tag somewhere giving your model...often on firewall or in door jamb, under the dash on the side lick plates, under the front seat, ad nauseum...and you need to contact other owners through th the club (if not already a member)...both for model ID and to see what ngine;s in similar models... Just out of cu7riosity, what's in it now?? With sympathy, BUd
  20. KRISTIAN----HOLD THE PHONE!! (Wait) More contradictory information coming this PM. Bud
  21. Should've thought to mention when checking other owners for leads always ask if they know if any or all of th series are drop-in fits for each other... Also looks like my original 7N-9N search was only partial; am filling it out,, will advise if any more clubs pop up...
  22. Tracking old engines is endlessly fascinating...My own list for the 9n (primarily from old always incomplete and sometimes erroneous) old parts catalogs) lacked 9 of the above list... But added six, a couple of which are gems... Most of my new six, per those old catalogs, used both thew 7N and 9N, the 7N being by far the most often listed (some 60 or so makes, cars and trucks), implying the 9N may've been an update/modification of the 7N.. Moon and Paige above have clubs, two of my new makes are Auburn and Velie, so there're four clubs to check for an engine...dosn't Elcar have a club??... Incidentally, the series seems to be 6N through 11N, some of which seem to've beem issued in 33/4x5 instead of the (more popular??) 31/2x51/4 per a 1930 catalog. A 1936 catalog onlt lists 31/2, but specifies piston assembly for 6N to 8Nare is for 31/2 bore . All these Ns are dolid head.
  23. Missed this earlier... Per a 1930 catalog Paige 6-65 1926-27 used their own Paige/Jewett engine... 6-45 1927 used a Cont'l "L"of 27/8 bore (there were a number of 27/8 bore 6 cyl "L's:, nine listed in a 1936 catalog---there were also 23/4 bore 6 cyl "L"s)... I have nothing that details the differences between the various 27/8 "L"s...
  24. My period catalogs do a poor job of identifying which White engine was in particular models, but FWIW, my clearest is a 36 engine parts catalog... Valves---GEC motor listed in five mpdels for 1919 only; no sharing with other engines...(valve table BEGINS with 1919 models)... Piston assembly---GEC and GM motors are listed for eight or more models 1919-22, with no way to tell which had which (this table also begins with 1919 models)... Bearings---GE, GEC motors are listed for four models 1917-20, again no way to differentiate (this table lists models as early as 1912)... REMEMBER these not complete---parts co's only listed what moved enough to justify stocking, listing... There appears to've been an engine series---GE, GEB,GEC, GED and GEG are listed, all 41/4 bores... White used letter designations up into the mid-late 20s, when they switched to numbers: 1A, 2A etc engines... If no White Gurus chime in here, do try the old-truck sites; tons of Whire information is out there, and this's primarily an auto site...... for
  25. There's a EWhite truck group website--classicwhitetrucks.com---but the page comes up blank---there,re lots of White truck people around; you might try other old-truck sites... A period catalog describe White truck engines by letter designation---GEC, GN, GO8/GR and GR---you might check yours for any such cast, stamped/embossed letters and numbers and add them to your inquiry...
