  1. sintered bronze bushings NOT BRASS , they hold oil in them to lube the shaft . bob
  2. Ron its starting to look to much like a car now , you know you will have start driving it soon and you know you will never stop doing so and wonder why you didnt do this years ago ,ha ha . Its only been ne on 40 years for me and i cant ever stop , they are just so practical for every day use , good work mate . Bob
  3. Just line up the ,O, son crank gear and cam gear with chain pulled tight with generator gear, very simple.
  4. The car is a 1928 series 128 Fast Four Dodge brothers Sedan with two wheel brakes and all steel body , very good car to restore and very reliable.
  5. More coming over the next few weeks as we have a 1900 Tabolt, 1915 Alldays Onions, 1915 Swift, 1926 Mercedes Benz to be repaired .
  6. The frame of the radiator is of cast bronze , soldered to the cartridge honeycombe core with stainless steel top tank and side plates ,lots of time had to be spent on the soldering to the core as it is of very fine copper and very heat sensitive to heat.
  7. The car in question is a 1936 Rolls Royce , the core was made in New Zealand by Replcore , there work is outstanding and to date we have put more than 30 hours of work in re coreing this radiator , still more to do before it is finished .
  8. Yeah i agree as I am repairing one in the radiator shop at the moment . bob
  9. David this is what I did with the sedan , the cheek plates go on the outside of the frame under the bumper brackets and the cross bar goes to them between the spring and frame . you can still remove the spare tyre with a trailer on . Bob
  10. I wood say roadster by the top stay under the mans elbow and how big the rear window looks , if tourer you wood see the curve of body to rear seat and the window would be much smaller .
  11. One will need the frame number and engine numbers to begin with to establish what year first.
  12. They look as if there has been a stone hone in side the rod bearings , where are the machine marks from the cutting tool ? Like Herm111 I a little worried about the surface finish .
