  1. I have been sidetrack on the engine rebuild. I will try to get the project going again.
  2. The one on the far left is the one that was original to the car!
  3. does anybody have one door handle that matches any of these 3. I have two cars and every one has a different handle on it. my 32 is a very late car as the engine block was cast in 09/32. I think that this car was built on the very last dregs of what was on the shelf. If you have one of each I can swap so we both have a good set of just work out what you need for yours.
  4. These are what they look like .

    Lipe pressure plate

    Attached are two pictures of what I have and need. I need the distance in the picture with the scale. It looks like somewhere around 3/4 to 7/8. but could be anything. I need the distance from the finger to the bottom of the crossbar. or the finger to the top surface. both are the same thing.

    Lipe pressure plate

    No but I need some measurements off one. I need the distance from the top to the fingers.
  8. I have rebuilt my Lipe pressure plate and had to make some new springs. Now putting it all back together I am not sure how to set the 6 bolts that hold it all together. Theses are the studs that go through the 6 fingers that the throw-out bearing presses on. there must be some type of procedure to get this adjustment correct. long winters here in Maine and it just gets us in Trouble!!!
  9. This is a photo that our local club just sent me. My untrained eye thinks 15s. They must have had a tough life as the caption says Great Norther Paper. That means they spent there life on logging roads.

    Franklin Gas gauge

    I use POR gas tank sealer kit. Eastwood sells it. If the tank is very rusted fill it with dawn dish soap and smooth rocks. I have a big tumbler that I set it in but if you do not have that luxury find a big cement mixer and strap it to the inside. roll it for about 15 min or 1/2 hr. then use the kit. They look like new after this procedure.
  11. I will take two as they come from the foundry. I may know someone that can do the machining!!!!!!!!!
  12. Do not Kasenite drill rod. It will chip and crack as the heat involved in applying the Kasenite wil harden the substructure of the rod. you need an 8620 or 4140 to case harden. you can also use CRS but not have the rod straight. If you torch harden tool steel you HAVE to draw it back at around 600 to 900 degs to reach a stable hardness. Sorry just the toolmaker coming out!!!
