  1. I am trying to identify the year and type of car or truck this Delco distributor came off of.  It is a pot metal 8 cylinder distributor that sat on a base/tower.  The pot metal is cracked everywhere.  The only clue as to an origin is a gelco number on the bottom 036334 but I think this is the housing number and not the assembly number.  Any help identifying this or with finding a usable replacement is greatly appreciated.  Please disregard the drive dog as this is not original and was modified for racing use in the late 1940's. 

    Thank You





  2. If anyone has an extra Sunnen CR-2100 mandrel they are willing to sell please let me know.  The CR series are specifically for connecting rods, have adjustable shoes and wide honing stones.  Thank You


  3. I have a 1941 ford woody project for sale.  This is a very complete car.  Many aspects of the 41 model year woody are unique to that year and all of the hard pieces to locate are here.  Most of the wood needs replaced but there are savable pieces on the interior.  The floors are all there.  As you would expect there are areas that need repaired on the floors.  The rockers also need repair.  All of the glass is original ford.  It has 1951 mercury engine in it.  It was last started and driven in 1974.  I have a few extra parts for it that go with the car.  Please message me with e-mail address for more pictures.  Please specify if you would like pictures of specific areas.  I have a clear title in my name. Asking price is $6,500 obo.  




  4. Today is the first nice day I didn't have to work so here is a woody update.  Overall the floor is all there but needs patch work. The rockers need attention as well.  I am told that this is a late production 41 due to the trim and 5 digit number on the firewall.  A few people who have looked at it have been amazed at how complete it is and showed me the many details that make this a 1 year only woody.  Now that I have a clear title in my name it is for sale.  I hope it makes someone a good project.  




  5. Thank you everyone for your replies.  The car does have a 3rd seat.  I will be removing the debris out of the car and evaluating the overall condition before posting it for sale.  I'm glad I am able to save this car before it turns back to soil and iron ore.  

  6. Hello. Can anyone tell me if Franklin made different length spindles for the series 9 and 10 cars. I am speaking specifically about the distance between the inner and outer bearings. The 1917 series 9A that I have measures approximately 3" from the outside faces of the inner and outer bearings. It seems to me that this distance increased on later models. I am just looking to get educated on the differences here on only the series 9 and 10 cars. Thanks in advance.
