  1. Hi. We have taken the car down the frame, rebuilt the engine and are down to the last few items to get it running for the first time in 46 years. I'm looking for information on an updraft carb that will fit a 31 century s. The one that came with the car is a carter, but doesn't fit the manifold exactly so I'm sure the original was replaced with whatever they could find at some point. Also, where to find one. Thanks for your help. David
  2. Hi. The work on my 30 Century S continues. This was a frame off restoration and We almost have the body back together, but are having issues with door alignment as you can see in the pictures. We have had the doors and center post on and off a number of times trying to figure out where the issues are and this is the closest we have come to correct alignment. The top of the doors look to be about right, but the bottom has a wider gap that we can't seem to take out. Can someone offer suggestions for final alignment? thanks david
  3. Hi Everyone. Attached is the amp/oil pressure gauge for my Hupp. My question is can you open this assembly so I can add an amp gauge and if so can someone give me a little direction? I didn't want to mess with it and accidentally break it. Thanks, david
  4. Bill, thank you so much for all the information. I think this will give the machinist a good idea of what to do. David
  5. Hi Bill, The sprocket that goes with this, is connected to the windshield frame and seems to be in good shape. I didn't realize that there were different configurations of this. I bought the crank off ebay from someone parting out a 29 Hupp. As far as I can tell, the crank is in good shape and not broken. I look forward to seeing your pictures. I do have a local machinist that thinks he can make the needed parts if he can see what it looks like. Thanks for your help. david
  6. Hi Hupp Friends, As we progress with the Century S restore, I have found another part that I need assistance with. As you can see from the attached picture, the housing that holds the crank assembly is broken and parts are missing. Would anyone either have the housing that they would like to sell or be able to take some pictures that I can use to have one made? Thanks for your help. david
  7. Thank you for the response. Yes. We did a complete rebuild and re-Babbitt. We hope to test the engine in the next few weeks.
  8. Hi Everyone, i have a question about what oil to use in my newly rebuild 1930 Century 6 engine. I have the stats on how much oil the engine takes, but can't find anything on which "type" of oil. Can someone give me a little insight? thanks, David
  9. Yes, I am a member of the Hupp club, but thought I would also ask others on the forum since these gauges were used on other cars as well.
  10. Hello Everyone. Continuing the restoration of my 31 Century S. It's going well, but have run into a few issues. We have the body back on the frame and are beginning wiring and woodwork. I found that my existing gas gauge has a broken needle and that we don't have an amp gauge. These are white faced gauges, as seen in the picture. Does anyone know where I can find a replacements for these? Thanks, David
  11. Thanks for the info. I will check them out.
  12. Hi, I am restoring a 1931 Hupp Century 6 with Monroe Lever type shocks and am looking for replacement straps. Can someone point me in the right direction to get the ready made straps or the material to make them? thanks, David
  13. Hi. Im sorry but, I really couldn't tell for sure from the drawings if it will work for my car. It sounds like you are still working on it. I will watch the message thread for your progress and when you get it dialed in and are happy with it, would you please post a picture? Thanks, david
  14. Hi. I just saw your message thread and was interested as I am restoring a 31 century s and need to replace my weatherstripping as well. How is your project going and do you think it will fit my car?
  15. Hi Everyone. Continuing work on my 30 Century S restoration and have a question about the thin strips that nail on the roof around the edge and around the soft part of roof. It looks like they are a 2 inch wide strip of metal that was folded on itself after it was nailed in place. My question is how to unfold it to replace the nails without making it look like I opened it with a old fashioned can opener? I would appreciate suggestions from you guys that have experience with this. Thanks. david
