  1. Were the blinds an actual option from the factory or an owner accessory? Quite unique.
  2. California location - Arizona license plate????
  3. Nice car. I wish it were closer to me. The enclosed transportation cost to the northeast is a deal killer for me.
  4. Nice car. Why do you describe it as a 1913 / 1914 year car? Do the numbers match the title / frame/ dash plate? Is the engine original? I must say that the steering wheel on the right side would attract a lot of interest at a car show. When did Hupmobile change over to the left side?
  5. What State is the car located in?
  6. I wish that my 1934 Ford Coupe bodies and chassis would sell on the Fordbarn. They are both listed for sale for $16,500. I would buy this T in a minute.
  7. The numbers stamped on the block looks like they were shaved down and re-stamped. The coil box has a 1916 faceplate.
  8. I would like nice original used or NOS clamps & hangers for a 1933 or 1934 V8 Ford. I really don't want to use the universal kinds because they don't look right on an original car.
  9. Check out my '39 for sale on Ebay. I'd rather sell it to someone here that would keep it original and restore it. Make me an offer.
  10. I would like to thank everyone who gave me the solutions to my problem. I am trying to get the car running its best before I put it away for winter. All I have left to do now are the brake wheel cylinders and shoes.Its great to have a forum of Chrysler experts providing much needed advice to novice backyard mechanics like myself. Again, thanks to all.
  11. I called All American Carb and explained my carb problem again. The mechanic who rebuilt the carb told me to adjust the idle set screw and enrich the fuel mixture. It worked. My car now idles when the choke plate is fully opened. The car now idles very very slightly a little uneven with the vacuum gauge reading between 16.5 to 17. I checked my dwell again and now my old dwell meter is reading 36. I readjusted my timing to TDC. c49er mentioned in a previous post my dwell should be set at 38. My shop manual doesn't have a dwell setting for my '39 Chrysler 6 Cylinder. Is 38 the correct setting for my '39? If it is, should I reset my point gap for such a small difference?
  12. I called the shop and explained what I found when I did the smoke test. He said that the throttle shaft would be hard to find and a bushing might be required. There is a little wiggle room on the shaft when I move it. The car is a low mileage vehicle (59K mile). The car dies when the choke plate opens fully even after I adjust the carb for more fuel. The only vacuum leak I found was at the throttle shaft.
  13. I did not get a manual with the meter. I think the meter has seen better days. What I did was check for a vacuum leak with a smoke test. I found out that the throttle shaft is leaking from excessive wear. I'll have to ship the carb back to All American Carb and have a bushing installed.
  14. c49er, The point gap is set at .020. The Dwell angle is reading about 22. I am using an old dwell meter I bought off of Ebay that has to be played with to get it to work.. How do I adjust the dwell to reach 38. I am obviously not a mechanic and could use all the help I can get.
  15. I installed the new coil and it seems to have improved. The dwell meter I have is old and finicky. I have to play with the switches to get it to work. The best I could do was to get the dwell set at 22 instead of 20. The timing is correctly set at TDC. The only problem I have now is the carb. After the car engine is completely warmed up, the throttle plate opens wide open and the car starts to run rough. If I slightly close the plate the car runs smooth. Is the plate suppose to be wide open when warm or slightly closed?
