  1. Thanks again for the reply's.

    When it was apart I trued up the mounting bracket on the surface grinder, and made a bushing for the shaft, so I know that is square to the front of the engine. 

    I was going to crown the upper pulley, but there just isn't enough material to do that. The owner of the car doesn't want to remove the lower pulley unless absolutely

    necessary.

    The next thing we're trying is a wider belt that will fit between upper pulley runners.

     

     


  2. Was able to find a 6 bladed fan from a Farmall Model H tractor, much heavier but very well balanced.  Runs smooth on the engine but I do not know much about a flat belt and when we rev the engine the belt runs into the front of the engine.  If anybody has any good ideas on how to make the belt run true to the bottom pulley I would be interested in your suggestion.

  3. I believe a 1924 Stephens had a continental engine 6 cylinder.  I need a cooling fan as you can see someone has butchered this fan up and I am afraid it is out of balance.  I've tried matching them with tractor fans but was unsuccessful so any and all leads would be much appreciated. PM me or wyankee@hotmail.com

  5. I did the same thing and googled the name and got the address.I live about an hour away so I called and asked if I could purchase a couple hides in person. Patrick,the owner, told me it was an old building with no retail area, but allowed me to pick them up there. It is an old warehouse, and filled with all kinds and colors and sizes of leather. Patrick wasn't there, but his 2 employees were great, and treated me great. 

      I really don't know anything about thickness of leather etc. but it seems real nice to me. I also bought a used walking foot machine, and hope to make some seat covers.
