  1. I've measured up the tank in my car and discovered it's the same dimensions as the tank in my 34 Dodge. Tanks Inc make the Dodge tanks. They are $265 in steel. The only unknown at the moment is how close the filler tube lines up. I called them and the sedan tank filler appears to be in the same spot as my Chrysler. The sending unit is in a different location but that isn't going to be an issue. I've ordered a tank so we'll find out if it will work. They are in stock at Tanks Inc. Ken
  2. I bought a very nice roadster last year. It's 95% restored. Unfortunately the gas tank was coated years ago and now the coating coming off and plugging up the gas line. Does anyone know of any reproduction tanks available? I don't think it can successfully cleaned out. Or does anybody have a good source on getting a tank made? thanks Ken
  3. Love those Studebakers! Fabulous looking body styles. Ken
  4. Dave Proctor's Reo is a 10 not a 12. Definitely not the same car. Dave's car was found and restored by Buck Rogers probably back in the late 60's-early 70's. When Dave got it he gave it a much better restoration. Ken
  5. The picture is of a M3 carb but the text says Model G??? What's going on.... Ken
  6. For my 31 CM6 I bought the clutch and brake pedal covers from Steele Rubber. They are an excellent reproduction. Maybe the same part for 32. Ken
  7. Bill Do you have a CM6 owners manual? Lots of good info in there. Ken

    14 Premier

    This is a pretty lonely site so I thought I'd make a post. I've had my Premier now for about a year and a half. I'm really enjoying the big powerful car feel that it has. I've put about 700 miles on it and it just keeps getting better to drive. Did a 50 mile run for lunch today and it never missed a beat. The wire wheels are now cream instead of brown which really helps the look. Booked into the 800 mile Pathfinders Tour in June and a few more 300 mile tours over the summer. It's going to be a good year! Ken
  9. Try the Horseless Carriage Specialty Shoppe. They have made special wheel bolts for our Stanley at a very reasonable price. the quality was very good Ken
  10. Thanks Carl. Steve Hammatt and I are good friends. He's helped me move parts around before. If I can't get the tires from Florida to Bakersfield then I'll ask Steve to move them at Hershey time. I'd just like to have them for the summer touring season. Although I can manage with the.old tires if need be. Thanks for all the ideas Ken
  11. I have 6 new 35 x 5 tires, still wrapped, that need a ride to north of Seattle or anywhere on the west coast. I'll be attending the Bakersfield swap meet in 2 weeks if anyone from that area is going to be there. Will help pay expenses. Ken
  12. This accident took place in Vancouver, BC. At the time there was nothing but empty fields around it. Today it's right in the heart of town. No empty land anywhere. You have to wonder how this accident could have happened. Ken
  13. You are missing the starter push switch which bolts to the starter housing. The battery cable attaches to the switch. When you push the starter pedal in the car it will close the switch and connect with the pad you see on top of your starter. Here's a picture of my 34 Dodge. Chrysler used this system for a number of years. The switch is still available as it was used on commercial vehicles . I'll try and find the pt# for you Ken
  14. Kaiser is probably right for 478 but can you tell us what it measures on the backside that goes into the wheel? Ken
  15. What is the diameter of the lens and the body? Thanks Ken
  16. Hi Joe I've got a 3 blade cast aluminum fan with a built in hub. It's about 18 inch dia. The blades could easily be cut back if they're too long. I bought it years ago thinking it would work on my 12 Oakland but, you know...that wasn't the case. Here's some pictures. Maybe it will work for you Ken
  17. I discovered that the tie rod end on my 31 CM6 is the same as on my 34 Dodge. I've been collecting 34 Dodge parts for the last 40 years and I had some nos on the shelf! Thanks for asking . Ken
  18. Does anybody know of a source or a the part#? Thanks Ken
  19. The 14 Lewis lived in the Vancouver BC area about 30 years ago. One of our club members brought it in from the USA. He tried to tour it but it wouldn't stay cool. The rad was too small. I believe he eventually put an additional rad under the car. Shortly after he sold it back into the states. Seems like a long time ago now! Ken
  20. I have to agree with Marty on this. I also have a 1912 Oakland only mine is the model 40 touring. I've always (33years now!) run the model L carb as that is what it came with from the factory. It runs great! Idles beautifully, lots of power pulling and it goes as fast as I'm comfortable with. In addition my Oakland is the easiest hand cranked car to start I've seen. I've got over 20000 miles touring this car over the years and the last thing I'd ever change is my Schebler carb!! Ken
  21. My original 34 Dodge generator works fine. I've had the car since 2000 and never had an issue with charging. Have you had your generator rebuilt? My car has 89000 miles on it. Made it that far with original equipment. Ken
  22. I'm needing the left inside door handle. I expect it's the same as used on other Chrysler products of the era. The picture is of the right side one that I have. Thanks Ken
  23. Good going Nelson. It will be a wonderful car when done. I have a CM6 roadster that I bought this summer. Don't have any extra of the parts you need but I'll watch out for them. Ken
