  1. I have a 1936 King Prod Co catalog that lists your set; King Pin (aka steering knuckle bolt) their then #K963 lists as .749 OD, 61/4 in length under head...King Prod is long gone; someone here noted who took them over but i failed to note it...HOWEVER, a 1941 McQuay-Norris catalog USES EXACTLY THE SAME NUMBERS which your parts houses may be able to cross index... FWIW, my catalog lists what appears to be a wider? set of vehicles using this set: Chry--28-33---models 52 (4 cyl with 4 wheel brakes), 66, CJ, CM, CI, CO 6s; DeSoto---28-33---K, CK, SA, SC, SD 6s, CF 8; Dodge---30-32-
  2. If no ID turns up in a week or so, post a sketch of the underside of the head--doesn't have to be to perfect scale--showing location and shape of all holes and shape of comb chambers---have some gasket catalogs (1930, 38, 41) and will see if can match... Surprising how many makes used the odd shape (longer on the valve side than the piston side); never noticed before...
  3. I'm sitting here trying to remember the three levels of anti-freeze when I was little: Alcohol was the cheapest, but you had to watch it carefully as it evaporated quicker than the water, leaving you with little or no protection... There was some thing in the middle that I can't recall: it was much stabler than alcohol, but not really "permanent" (free of evaporation)... Top of the line were the then commercial mixes: Prestone and other competing (often lower priced) "permanent" brands (ethylene glycol??).. Someone fill me in on what i can't recall...
  4. Try posting your pic on truckandbusforum.com---it's a Brit based forum that covers both modern and vintage buses. Any US models exported to France were probably used in the UK as well. Helped a member there ID a Lycoming engine in something they were restoring in1912; quite nice people, shoild be able to ID your bus or recommend other places to try. Good luck.
  5. Have you tried Googling the OE past numbers??
  6. HERB: My above comments (as noncompos) need to be updated--- (1) The Aussies on oldihc did come up with a replacement pump, but the voluminous original threads were lost in an oldihc meltdown; I've got notes somewhere as to who to contact (somewhere!!) , but post your question on oldihc, I think now it's the pre-30 forum, and you should get replies... (2) Jim Tremble did get someone to work out a second replacement, but I never got details (or, if I did, didn't index them properly)...he should still re reachable thru smokstak, and, I'm sure, will be happy to put you onto whoever made up his "n
  7. My apologies---I completely misread your original post and galloped off in the completely wrong direction... The 6Y was primarily an auto engine but did get into a Commerce truck... Try Garrad (Gerry/Jerry) Moon at Monte's Eqpmt, obsolete Cont'l parts dealers north of Chicago, Ill garradmoon@montes@flash.net montesequipment.com If no help try P A Ross machinery in Dallas, TX, also noted as being helpful with old Cont'ls parossmachinery.com About the only familiar name using it that has a forum I know of was the 1923 Auburn model 6-43...period Auburns also used several other Cont'ls...you migh
  8. Sounds progressively like a major operation.... Assuming someone's tried snugging everything up, and it's not really major leakage, perhaps a more practical solution would be something he could smear on to stop the leak(s) without cementing the pan to the block, until major engine work is needed... Crude, yes, but labor and/or damaged parts during removal saving, if it works...
  9. What?? Oil running out or assembly anxieties??? You probably have a 226 (F6226=automotive (actually, truck), F226=Ind'l, PF (or similar P-)= 226 free standing power plant)... Google Cont'l Engine Manuals; some hits for Wisconsin/Cont'l engines (or vice versa) or similar website should come up that has free online manuals, including for the 226...
  10. Well, well, well...went thru a roughly 28/29/30 to 42 Shurhit catalog without success, but various 652s are listed in a 56 Filko Trk/Bus catalog (not in makes sections but dist list included)... 652Cand D took then Filko 27-28-37 point set (apparently one set---most point sets in that catalog are numbers like 27-35 or 52-35, with a few 3 digit segment numbers and a few with letters added) (or maybe 3 piece point set??) DR88 cap, DR83 rotor and DR224 condenser... Perhaps you can get those old Filko numbers crossed with something still available... None of those are unique numbers, appearing for
  11. Try searching block repair on a couple of the old Ag engine/eqpmt sites (ytmag, smokstak, there're lots)---farm eqpmt stands a lot so they come up with a lot of cracked stuff when they forget to drain or it doesn't drain completely.. Jack's Waterglass's been mentioned before; you can search that for comments... Can't comment on Knight engines but you'll find some ingenious repairs being made......
  12. In the past with tubes in daily drivers I used some of the blow-in sealers for minor leaks; worked fine, never had any problems---left the stuff in for 2-3 days, then let the air out/reflated...
  13. If you're still looking, have you been able to review period ignition parts catalogs over there for other near-period 8s, straight or V8s,, that may've used your distributor or a close variant?? While I'm unfamiliar with Euro vehicles, over here it's unusual to have a model with completely unique distributor internals; a dealer in obsolete ign parts may be able to match up a rotor and points that'll work acceptably---a cap may or may not be unique... Do you know if the factory made local ign systems available as well as DR, for owners who preferred as completely French a model as possible??? M
  14. Interesting-- Your 662M is listed for your 34 Pres (actually 34-35 Comm/Pres 8) but so is the 662H (33 Comm/Pres 92 8, 34 Comm/Pres 8)...ALSO OTHER 662 VARIANTS 662A for 32 Pres 8... 662G for 33 Pres 92 8... YOUR 662M is also in 36 Pres 92 8 37 Press 3c 8 38-39 Pres 8 40 Pres 6C 8... VARIANTS OUTSIDE STUDE 662E (and 661V) 32 Graham Bluestreak 8 662P 34-35 LaSalle "350, 8, 50, 50B" 662K, N. R var 33-35 Olds 8s 662T, W 35-36 var Packard 8s 662J 36 Pierce 1601 8 660, 661 662 and 663 seem to be for 8s...more than likely none of these are interchangeable, but you might be able to find out from
  15. Uhhhh...am I missing something here???--- V12, 4 plugs per cyl=48 2 dist, 12 hole=24 I assume you meant 2 plugs per cyl???
  16. In my misspent years, with our old jalopies, we used to disengage a stuck starter by putting it in high and gently rocking the car.... Then turning the engine a bit with the fan belt let it fire up...believe had the problem with (among others) a 34 Terrapieces with a very worn axleflex? front end that was really an adventure to drive off pavement (steady as a rock on pavement)...
  17. I had started to comment that 1936 seemed a bit late for the O's, that Restorer32s Thorne engine had probably been an OO or a Q, but recalled I'd promised to look up something for a tractor enthusiast and got diverted... In looking thru a catalog for Ag stuff I noticed some Allis Chalmers combines 32-40 with the OX John Deere combines 29-31 and 34-36 with the "...O, OX..." (options? OX replaced O??)... Nichols & Shepard combines 29-36 (became Oliver, or was part of Oliver)... Minneapolis Moline combines 29-31... I had forgotten to mention Gray Marine converted the OX to their H50 AKA 4-
  18. First, I was wrong about the OOA/B/C being later---it appears they were contemporary with the O/OX etc... The O/OX etc were one of Herc's earliest series (they don't appear in a good 1917 ring catalog; earliest I found was a 1919 listing) and show in probably half the Herc listings in several period catalogs to 1930/33, but I have no actual production figures... The series seem to share piston ass'bly, valves and babbited rods/main caps EXCEPT for the OXC/OXCP, 41/4 bores that have their own sat of parts...I assume the "P" means power unit... Series engines listed are O, OX, OXA,, OXB, OXC, O

  20. Now I'm more confused than usual... There's a Cont'l in the truck (4 or 6?) and you've found/picked up a Herc to replace it??...or you have two 23 Morelands??...or??? For body "tag" (3x4 or so plate attached somewhere) you sometimes have to look in odd places---obvious ones are doorframes, under doors above running boards, firewall in engine comp'tmt, etc, all visible places---now look up on insides of cab sides under dashboard level, on inside of firewall up under dash, under seat, inside of seat frame, inside glove comp't'mt if any, and such...but, as 1912S said, they tend to disappear... Fo
  21. (Sigh)...your 1923 dating may be correct---looked at a 32 engine parts catalog and found "1922-26 Road Runner; BX-1 & 11/2 Ton.." and other models using the piston listed for the O/OX series of engines...these old catalogs disagree more than they agree...
  22. I assume the 7R, then, was someone's guesstimate...early Morelands were heavy on Cont'ls... As NEWBY said, the farm engines were a different company, based in Evansville (and, to make life more difficult for followers of those engines, there were also Hercules Gas Engine Co/Gas Engine Works in SF, 1890s, purchased by Peerless Motor Co 1907, and Hercules 1Cyl horiz oil engines built by The Engine Co of Indiana, Terre Haute, and, I don't doubt, various other "Hercules")... By now I'm sure Padgetts noticed the "M" was 4x51/2 (with all due respect, it's nice to know I'm not the only one occasio
  23. OKCSLIM: The old replacement parts catalogs i've picked up over the years will be of little help for you; I use them primarily for engine ID (some were leftovers when I disposed of earlier old-paper collections, some from EBay) ---as mentioned above try to locate some factory literature... Another possibility is that trucking magazines like Power Wagon and Commercial Car Journal often published "reviews" of new models, sometimes 2-3 pages of tech info and pix that'd be invaluable to you.. and various auto-related magazines---Cycle & Automobile Trade Journal and such---had "Commercial Car
  24. Hold the phone---my old catalogs (granted, far from reliable) show all 4s thru 1923, with 6s starting in 1924...now, some states registered trucks the year they were first licensed, so you could have a 24 model built and registered in late 23, having papers as a 23 model... Nor do my old catalogs show a 7R, either---however, many of these were built to buyers specs/wishes, so it's quite possible the 7R is original as it was available in 1923....mostly a car engine, it was installed in a handful of trucks, a few up to 2Ton.... It was a popular engine; whether to keep it will depend upon what
