  3. I Agree, hoping all goes SMOOTHLY from here, and at a little quicker pace. I will take Quality and Craftsmanship over Speed any day !!
  4. Well Christmas has come and gone as well as the New Year. WE are now in 2020 and time to get back on the ball. Goal for now is to have the car back running by end of March. so is the plan !! Got a call from Russ at Paul's Rod & Bearing he has cleaned up the parts and poured the babbitt. said the mains are already rough machined to .060 under and ready to ship. Connecting Rods are poured and rough cut, waiting on final numbers to machine to from the Machine shop. Going to call the machine shop to see where the crank is in line, and tentative machine date. Once they get that done we will have final numbers to send to Russ @ Paul's.
  5. just remember it is never to late to start, and you are never to old to learn to young for that matter. i love to learn new things an d figure things out, probably because i was born with "The Knack" Dilbert fans will understand. when i get to old to learn something new, then it will be time to go
  6. congrats Ted on the win, now to see which one you get you deserve any and all you get for all your hard work time and dedication on the Olds !!! still would love to have you here in 2022 for our grand national hosting, car would look great with the rest of them, plus you have been here a few times picking up and dropping off a 19929 Chevrolet this time you could come to hang out and show off the ride. both of you !!
  7. got my Distributor back on Thursday !! man does it look sharp. this was done by VCCA guru Skip Geear, top notch quality work. tested on the Distributor machine and good to go !! what we started with, 2 spare distributors end result,. one show quality sharp distributor
  8. currently idling and circling the airport waiting on the machine shop to magnaflux and grind/polish the crank so that we can get numbers to Russ @Pauls to do the babbitt. also got update that my distributor has been rebuilt and should be on its way here in the next day or two. had 2 spare distributors and had VCCA Guru rebuild me a spare from the two, plan to use the spare as the main distributor and the current one will be my spare/emergency one. will have to post pictures of it when it arrives !!
  9. VCCA is teh Chevrolet place to talk and learn Vintage Chevrolets, i own a 1929 just know many parts are not readily available, only a small aftermarket for general items, other than that is it finding someone that has the part, or is parting out a car. here are my resources outside ebay !! remember it is NOT a model T or A or a Tri Five !! *The Filling Station in Oregon ....Website: The Filling Station ....Phone:(800) 841-6622 *Gary Wallace in Missouri.....Website:Early Chevrolet Parts.....Phone:(314) 293-1991 *Lonny Ekstrand in Texas.....Website:Stanleys Parts.....Phone:(817) 478-7265 *Bruce Bugay in Virginia (Posts on here as chevy b).....email:bwbugay@aol.commight also want to try*Bob Marx in Wisconsin (Posts on here as marxparts).....Website:Marx Parts LLC: Antique and Vintage Car Parts.....Phone:(715) 652-2405.....email:bob@marxparts.com
  10. just an update for anyone following... Parts (Mains and Connecting Rods) have been received and verified by Russ at Paul's Rod and Bearing. looking at about 4 weeks turnaround time. machine shop has NOT started on crank yet, have a few in front of it, hoping by end of month to have the done so we can send numbers to Russ.
  11. agreed, really cool info. heard of all three and i know that my 1929 Chevrolet is either Slotted/Flat Head Screws or Hex Head in a Few Places.
  12. know Chevrolet used the diaphragm fuel pump starting in 1929, as 1928 had a vacuum fuel tank on it. rebuild the one on my car, and a spare on the shelf
  13. few shots of the bearing inserts and connection/pistons before disassembly
  14. pick up the connection rods/pistons and the main inserts today as well as the crank the connecting rods and shims along with the main inserts will be going to Russ out at Paul's Rod & Bearing the crank shaft is going over to another shop that will do the work on it. clean it up, magnaflux it, then grind and polish to provide numbers for the babbitt !! same shop that will be doing the line boring of the block as well.
  15. oh yeah i figured that much, 3 bearings, each a different diameter = setup time and tool time
