  1. Alan, you've come up in the world. An American. Wow. Just picked up throttle and spark levers for my 1911 Warren-Detroit project off of ebay. They're aluminum and 7" across the semi-circle. In other news, working hard on the Model 70. Hope to get it into the paint buy by June 1st. It's crunch time if I hope to get a fire in it before then. I'll send you a pic of the Warren. It's a mess.post-88552-143141866994_thumb.jpg


  2. Nice to see young guys wanting the Dodges. I've always felt that the 1917-27 Dodges were twice the car that the Model T ever was and yet they go for a third of the money and are hard to sell at that. Hobbyists have to do some research before buying the "iconic" Model T. If they did, the old Dodges would be in demand. Oh well... I'm going to delete this thread because I don't know how to change the 'slug' saying the car is for sale. I've received a complaint (see above).


  3. One thing I noticed about the engine is that it seems to have the air passage way (to the carb through the block) blanked off so no filter. There is an air temp regulator set up directly on the back of the carb carb. I was wondering why someone would do this?

    I also noticed half a dozen fuses have been fitted.

    Would anyone else have observations we could discuss?

    The wiring is a mess. The new owner's anxious to make it right. I don't know about the carb although I don't think anything is blanked off.


  4. Car is fairly squared away. Front end is tight; steering box is tight; had the cover off the differential and the carrier assembly's in good shape. Haven't started it. Going by the numbers; having the gas tank cleaned and coated; installing new fuel line; rebuilding the vacuum tank. Replacing the water pump/generator coupler. Also, replacing running board rubber. All of this is part of the current asking price. Wiring needs attention and the carb should be rebuilt. Then we'll start it and see what we got, which I'm expecting will be fine, but then we'll revisit the price. emzee


  5. Don: don't know if my message went thru, so I'll try again. Car is fairly squared away.

  6. Steel Rubber has a number of different t-shaped rubbers-they vary in width of the blade part. See their website for Chrysler cars

    Thanks, but I'm looking for the rubber seals that go between the post and the windshield frame they are quite irregular and on the driver side is grooved so the vacuum line can run along side it. They're concave on the post side and recessed so the frame fits nicely into it. I imagine I could make one if I had a medium (Devcon?) that could be dammed and filled and then use the frame or mock-up to make the impression. But I thought maybe someone had already gone to the trouble.
