  1. Hi Everyone! I am missing one male plug in socket for my headlight. It is three contact, and the outside measurement is .826 +- and the bakelite insert is .750 +- I need one, but would buy two so they match. This is an unrestored original car, I want to maintain it the best I can in its" untouched form. Thanks! Bill
  2. Hi Everyone I should have mentioned that the tool isn't for use, it is for display with the Dodge Brothers tool set. It is the only thing I am missing. Thanks
  3. Hi Everyone! I am looking for the small valve lapping/grinding tool that goes into/fits a bit brace. Please see attached picture. Thanks !
  4. Has anyone used The Flying Dutchman in Oregon for water pump rebuild? Were you happy with the results? ( 1931 Standard 8 ) I talked to the fellow in New York but I didn't get a warm fuzzy feeling as they seem to be more a commercial/marine rebuilders. Comments please. Thank You Bill
  5. I wanted to send my pump to the flying Dutchman, has anyone had experience with him, and can I expect good results? thanks Bill
  6. Hi Yes I did, heated with torch and then white candle wax at the seam. a large pair of locking vice grips on the small side of the cap, and then struck with a rubber mallet. it finally moved and got it off with no destruction to the threads in the cap or the drum. the few marks in the cap will file out and the cap is now very restorable. thank you everyone Bill
  7. It had become quite a challenge, but we succeeded. Thank you! Bill
  8. 1931 PACKARD DISK WHEEL HUBCAP REMOVAL HI EVERYONE! Finally got the hub cap off without destroying it !!! What I ended up doing was heating it with a propane torch, and then rubbing a white candle around the seam. I did this twice. I then used a pair of vice grip pliers #12 LC around the small diameter and locking them in place. I struck this with a rubber mallet, and low and behold the cap turned. it was snug the whole way, but was able to get it off with no damage to the threads in the cap, nor the drum. Thank you everyone for your suggestions, it h
  9. Packard Disk Wheel Hubcaps Thank you everyone for all your suggestions, I hope to be able to get to that this weekend, I have been spending the week sandblasting wheels getting them ready for powder coating. I will post my results as soon as I get a solution. Bill
  10. Hi Everyone I need a pair of the interior cloth covered sun visors for the 1931 Standard eight. Other years may be the same. Thank you! Bill
  11. Hi everyone! I need a dome light for a 1931 Standard eight, it is the one with the triangular amber inserts at the corners. Many thanks Bill
  12. Hi Everyone I am a new Packard owner , a new addition to my Dodge Brothers Cars! Have a problem, how does one remove the driver's side rear hub cap? I have soaked, heated, strap wrench, the old iodine trick, and it will not budge! It is a mint cap, and I really don't want to destroy it getting it off, could it be left hand threads on that side of the car? Any suggestions would help. I have a hubcap wrench but it is the wrong one, it is for the 29/30 caps with the smaller and deeper hex. Any Suggestions would be appreciated. Bill
  13. I have a 1931 Standard eight. Everything I have tried I cannot budge the driver's side rear hubcap. Is there a possibility that it is left hand threads? I have used a heavy duty strap wrench, soaked the opening with a release all product, used the heat gun three times, even tried the old iodine trick, nothing works. It is a mint hupcap and I really don't want to destroy it if I don't have to. All the other three cap off no problem. Any suggestions? Many thanks Bill
  14. Hi The car I am looking at purchasing is missing the rear seat vanities. Can anyone get back to me with photo's of what the correct ones look like.? Also the car is missing the rear foot rest, a picture of that too would certainly be appreciated. Many Thanks Bill Gess
  15. Hi Everyone On the data plate for a 31 chev sport sedan, is the following information: GM 31569 622R and The word Oshawa. I know that this is a Canadian built car, and the seven digit number on the tag matches the number on the block. Does anyone have the information for deciphering these other numbers. I believe the car should be Boatswain Blue. Thanks! DBtimesthree.
  16. Hi Thank you for your email, I sold the car, so do not need any parts for it. I was only a temporary custodian of it, as I needed to rescue it from becoming a hotrod.
  17. I gave up long time ago also, it is too complicated and if you will notice we used to have numerous want and for sale ads, now there is nothing, people simple cannot be bothered. I blanket emailed many off the club executive about a year and a half ago, and they mostly all agreed, but nothing was done. Now I simply don't bother. I tried to pay my dues on there, a year ago, and finally had to give up and mail a money order in. Same nonsense, far too difficult. If I was a new member or someone wanting to join, I would have been so angered, that they would have lost me as a potential member. dbtimesthree.
  18. I need the trunk rack and bracket for a Dodge Brothers 1931 DG 8 Sport Sedan. I do not know if the ones used on the 6 cylinder cars of that year are the same. many Thanks !! Bill

  20. Hi The 29/30 Senior takes a UX3 Stromberg to be correct, The X indicates it is a cross mounted flange, All Strombergs with the X in the designation indicate cross mounting flange, that is perpendicular to the block.The UX2, and the U2 and the Detroit Lubricator ( Stewart ) will not fit this application. The reproductions that come from Australia are only the U2 and the UX2. The only later carb that is the correct replacement is the Carter 289S and it requires an adaptor flange. Your mounting bolt pattern size is 2 and 15/16 of an inch centre to centre. I have a fully restored OX3 and also a good unrestored UX3 for sale, and an unrestored 289S. The OX2 is too small for your car shouldn't fit the manifold. Please check your bolt spacing, this is critical. Unfortunately these carbs are scarce, and restored expensive. I run the carter 289S on my Senior ( 1929 ) with very good results and as I indicated earlier this is the only correct later replacement carb from the carter interchange list. The nice thing is with the 289S is it cast iron and the OX3 3 is brass so both pretty much being bullet proof. The OX3 is the earlier version of the UX3 with is pot metal. Hope that helps.

  21. I am looking for a hood hold down latch for my 1931 DG 8 , It is Different than the six cylinder model. May be the same as maybe other Chrysler products of that vintage. Thanks !!
  22. Hi: Looking to purchase the correct DG8 crank hole cover, will be the same as a 32 I believe. Also require trunk rack as some yahoo put on a smaller trunk on my car and cut off the excess amount of trunk rack. Trunk rack is 36 X 16 inches and has 4 holes across in three rows. Also still looking for a back seat vanity, have one now, need the second one. Plus 2 NOS outside door handles, plain ones, have new locking one and one new non locking one. Thanks Bill
