  1. I am looking for a rear wheel cylinder for a 26 Wills Sainte Claire. I think that the front cylinders are the same. 1 1/2” bore made by Lockheed. I don’t know what other cars may have used the same cylinders. OK if it need sleeved. It looks like pa 3252 on the casting. Thanks, Dave 717-422-8324 Mechanicsburg, Pa.
  2. I always wanted to go to SpeedWeek at Bonneville. I figured that if Burt could travel from down under, the least that I could do was travel from Pennsylvania to Utah. so in 2010 I finally made it. Big mistake, I was hooked. came home and built a 56 Corvette Landspeed racer and raced it for the next three years at Bonneville and other Landspeed events. It was Burt Monroe’s fault.

  11. This show was one of the best that I have been to. The weather played a huge part in the success, but the hard work and organization of the AACA members was amazing. We have used this venue before and the Wyndham management continues to go out of its was to accommodate all of the needs of the show organizers. I agree that the military collection of the Buck family was a great addition the the show. It always seemed to have crowds surrounding the collection. Thanks again to all that contributed. Dave Gray
  12. That was so much fun watching that video. Some awesome driving from most of the drivers.
  13. The pin was made by Whitehead & Hoag, Newark NJ
  14. I have had a rather unusual (to me) pin in my toolbox for many years. I can't remember where I got it, but I do recall being told that it was to identify a REO plant worker assigned to the duty of standing on the roof of the factory in Lansing Michigan and watch for signs of an air attack during the war. REO was heavily into military truck production, so I guess that they feared an attack on the plant. Has anyone seen these pins?
  15. Thank you for the responses. I removed the top cover from the engine this afternoon and it is pretty much as you described. I could see how the oil dripped on the camshaft and then on to the lower bearings. Quite a unique lube system. My only question is, what becomes of the oil that accumulates in the lower part of the block? There doesn’t seem to be much. maybe 1/2 inch.
  16. I am currently working on a 1908 Albany automobile. The engine does run, but I don’t understand how the engine is lubricated. It doesn’t seem to have a oil pan or drain plug. It does have a belt driven drip Oiler. Any one have any information that may help? Dave
  17. I had to smile when I looked at the tractor trailer on the left. It has been a long time since I saw sanders on the rear axle of a truck. Dave
  18. I bought a new 67 396 SS Chevelle before I left for overseas. After I returned from SEA I bought a 67 427 Corvette Convertible. It has been a huge rollercoaster of muscle cars and Corvettes ever since.
  19. Wanted windshield wiper control switch for 1956 and 1957 Corvette. The cable length must be 35" Thanks, Dave Gray gray6363@gmail.com
