  1. Will try to feed finding in chron order of catalogs... The 29 is Accuralite Company, Muskegon, Mich, Nov 1929 (pistons, quoted above-)--next is 1930 McCord gaskets (title page gone, but my notes refer to it as 1930)...lists Dodge 6 (pass) model Senior 1927 31/4x41/2 1928-30 33/8x41/2 (Trk) Graham Bros Bodge Bros 2-3 Ton (Bus) JEB, JEX...this lists two head gaskets : 1927 and early 28 and late 28-30...somewhere later is an engine change in Feb 28 listing engine #, but lost in scribbling, will show up again... The Cont'l section in
  2. (1) I hate myself when I get into one of these quagmires... (2) I don't follow mainlines, so I know nothing about Dodge etc production,; at my age, you'll forgive me for not wanting to know... (3) Replacement parts catalogs, which I use for engine IDs, are weak reeds to lean on---errors, misprints, published too early to catch production changes (factory inability to provide enough or any of originally stated engine, orig eng found unsuitable or cheaper better engine suddenly available, ad nauseum)...yet containing reams of info, so shouldn't be ignored... (4) Agree that a parti
  3. Just read your above...8R??? Did find and attempted to read thru your earlier post under Dodge Trucks, but the more I read the less I knew.; not unusual in my own researching... So---I have a 38 Victor gasket catalog that, in a Cont'l engine index section, shows: AD. (Dodge Senior)---had gskt #668---pg 105 (Dodge Section) 12M, 14M (Dodge) same gasket, same page # 8R is listed with several other engines as "various", with gasket #350, pg 86 (Cont'l section). I did find a page in my notes listing 8R makes using, and while Dodge was not there that page failed to list w
  4. There are also the profe$$ional obsolete/rare parts dealers---people/firms that specialize in acquiring and reselling rare/obsolete parts, or fabricating NLA (no linger available thru normal sources) parts/assemblies...examples are Monte's Eqpmt fot Cont'l engines, Olsons and Gasketstogo for gaskets, ad nauseum...I'm only personally aware of dealers in engine parts and electrical, but i assume others exist for axles, steering etc...I once kept a list myself. truck related, just out of curiosity (sadly dated now) which ran to several notebook paper pages... You'll find that reports of th
  5. If you haven't already, you might try Garrad (Gerry/Jerry/Gerald) Moon at Montes Eqpmt, NW of Chicago. obsolete Cont'l parts dealer---don't recall anyone mentioning whether or not they have manuals... The 15H is listed in a 1930 gasket catalog and a 38 gasket catalog as truck incl fire truck/bus....the series, taking the same set of gaskets, seems to be 14H-15H-16H-28H- P96 (the P96 is a free standing power unit version of one of them)... garradmoon@montes@flash.net or montesequipment.com. If a specific manual was not issued for the 15H they may be able to advise which manual cover
  6. Cameron offered its engines to the trade; I remember seeing various ads in thi trade journals, but I have no real information re' how much penetration they acquired... Do have notes that they got engines, 4s, into the Liberty Light Car (Light Cars were a semi-category between CycleCars during their craze and "normal" size (??) cars---not familiar with actual category specs, if any). Std Cat says both very low prod. Don't know anything about their aircraft and marine engines...
  7. Oh, yes, remember those very fondly, they did put out lovely heat, at least the one I personally remember did... Never had one myself, they were considered an upscale accessory, reportedly far more efficient than most small car OE heaters and most low cost aftermarket heaters, at least those in the old jalopies we drove... Don't recall the friend who had one voicing any complaints; they were generally well spoken of. I asssume they died out when OE heaters became more efficient......
  8. Cont'l made numerous engines over the years, and you might get better replies posting the engine ID; there should be a tag on it, often half hidden behind accessories... Cont'l was also very good at public relations, getting technical articles on new engines in the trade journals; Googling the engine ID and year may turn some up on yours, often helpful with unfamiliar engines....
  9. You have other possibilities ---if you haven't already thought of and tried (1) Many Cont'ls were issued in a kind of "series, in which several engines would share a few or quite a few parts...let us know which Cont'l you have, as it's possible there may be "sister" engines with the same drive gear..... (2) If the gear teeth are worn, gears can be built back up or new ones can be machined, altho may be too costly... (3) For NOS or advice on something that'll work try Garrad/Gerry/Jerry/Gerald Moon at Montes Eqpmt, NW of Chicago, longtime obsolete Cont'l dealers ..garradmoon@m
  10. Ag eqpmt has a continuing problem with manifolds ---apparently because of off-and-on operation and mice loving manifolds for nesting, their urine being very corrosive... If you're seriously considering welding your manifold, you might check some of the Ag sites for shops that do a lot of it, as in JVP's post above...,,,
  11. Std Cat mentions this engine, designed by Scripps=Booth, as an L-head 31/4 x 5, but refers to later Scripps-Booth cars using a Ferro V8... Without wading through Scripps-Booth early history, does anyone here know if this first V8 was used in anything else?? Many thanks for any comments...
  12. Dealing with these old catalogs has generated a lot of sympathy for parts people... That 36 King Prod catalog has a specs section ES1---Diam of socket thread 7/8 (.875) x 18NF; Diam of ball 1"; High/Low diam of taper .750/.649, length of taper 13/16 ).8125) thread size od stud 9/16 (.5625)-18... Sadly, no specs were listed for anything after ES49... I mis-spent a couple years of my youth in replacement parts, and can attest replacement parts companies did provide parts that'd been tweaked to fit several installations (but possibly none exactly as OE) yet close enough to be
  13. SPINNEYHILL----I'm not doing well on the Reo, either...I have two choices, all agreeing in my 36 and 40 Kings and the 41 NcQuay-Norris (all same format, came part #s)... 31-32 Six, S, 621 6cyl; 821,825,831,835 8cyl their ES1 32-34 Flying cloud S, 38, Royale 75 (all 6s) theirES56 The ES 56 seems to fit others in your column of users, but under a different number (RS26)and I note you headed the list 33-35 (I did not compare specs)... The ES1 shows an array of orphans, incl Auburn and Peerless, late 20s/early 30s, incl a raft of Reos/Reo trks 27-32. These may be hard to find i
  14. We of a certain age find it in archaic assemblies of the printed page, called catalogs (as SP mentioned above) and books...heavy to store and pack around, but wonderful for exercise, and they can't be hacked and diddled by someone having electronic fun...(that's the good part)... Alas, they do have their idiosyncrasies...one being they don't always agree... April 1940 King Products lists 33-36 var models incl LC/LCX 1/2T, their ES35 ends, no "intermediate rod" (which I assume is the tie rod itself??) listed (unusual)... May 1941 McQuay-Norris lists 1936 All LC/LCX series, 1/2T
  15. Concur that's way way too much oil depletion for burning in comb chambers or exhaust without having real billows of oil smoke out behind you... Assuming you're not leaking it out (no puddles in the driveway?? look at the underside behind the motor; don't be surprised if you find your oil liberally coating everything).. As recommended above, sounds like a prime candidate for opening up... If you replace rings, at least carefully check the bearings; if they have any slack at all putting in new rings=more downward force on bearings, and if slack they'll get very slack very quickly.
  16. Without reviewing whole thread, the "jump in cold car, bound down highway=no appreciable loss, while jump in car, tootle around doing errands =loss, does sound like something cracked, or not sealed, when all cold/contracted, that expands, sealing itself up, when mass of engine/head hot/expanded (already included in speculations above) ... May well require pulling head to find... personally, I'd be inclined ti try stop leak first, in hope will seal during moderate temp periods (cold enough to leak but warm enough for sealer to bond)...
  17. Does yours have the little stub gearshift coming out of the dash??? Had a 4dr in years past; had two vacuum units running the shifters; had to remember to leave it in neutral in the winter as the little shifter diaphragms'd freeze and the car wouldn't start in gear... Nice solid sedan; sweet runner...haven't thought about it for some time; where do the years go?...
  18. Interesting point---somewhere online is a fascinating piece about possible alternative firing orders, but all I find in my notes is one small note, that late 1920s Buick 6s were 1-4-2-6-3-5, and that Wisconsin water cooled truck/ind'l 6s were the same... Can't comment re' the Buick, but have a little Thonpson "manual" (more like a pamphlet) that verifies the Wisconsins...
  19. I'm inclined to a head gasket leak, unless this has some modern/exotic plumbing I'm not familiar with where coolants getting in... On the stop leak, in my jalopy days we lived on stop leak and block seal, and while I remember people saying it'd stop up the radiator instead of the leak, can't recall ever having such problems---that being said, radiators, main and/or heater, may be quite different designs now...
  20. (Sigh) Offline for a bit, noticing changes in format... One thing I miss is the little few words of last posts in the Orphan Cars forums...I don't have the time (or energy) to open each forum, so scanned those "teasers" for anything interesting I might be able to help with or learn from... Oh, well--in the beginning was the word, and the word was "adapt"......
  21. Posting in another forum reminded me not everyone familiar with fact that many of the old auto/truck/ag trade journals ( Horseless Age, Motor, ATD and ATJ, Commercial Car Journal, The Commercial Vehicle, The Motor Truck ad nauseum) are available in full view on hathitrust, and are searchable for words or combinations of words...nice for searching things like Sterling Motor Co, Detroit... Many later issues of same or later journals are also available on a limited basis that I'm not familiar with...
  22. Interesting...my 36 King Prod catalog lists just as above, except the ET40 is also listed for that 33 Buick 3350 to that frame number, and shows the Huoo fit as 34 models 417W and 421J...
  23. You didn't say whether finding a casting was mandatory (no pump, shattered pump) or whether parts'd be sufficient for a rebuild...yes, I saw "...looking for a pump..." but that doesn't preclude considering a rebuild (cost etc)... The March 36 (the same numbers/format repeated in May 1941 McQuay-Norris catalog) shows the up to #4075 shaft, impeller (blank for front busing) rear bushing, packing nut, packing unit, and "M" parts (woodruff key, impeller pin) were used on total runs of four Cont'ls and partial runs of three others besides yours.... After 4076 the shaft is only listed wit
  24. My catalogs don't show Peerless water pumps, but, FWIW, under Cont'l 11E it shows a change t engine #4075... To 4075 it lists a number of other Cont'ls and a batch of Reo cars/tks for the shaft, impeller and bushings... After #4075 it lists the same shaft, blank for the impeller and bushings, and lists different packing nut and complete packing unit...... Maybe the Peerless people will know if Peerless used own punp or the Cont'l pump Catalog doesn't show any complete pumps, only parts....
  25. In cleaning the points and the tip of the rotor don't forget the spark plug wire contacts both inside and outside the dist cap... And if you have one of the Lycoming motors, probably K or KB, treat it carefully; Lyc parts, reportedly, are quite difficutl to find...
