    Piston question

    I do not understand the piston code you have of "E" for cylinder 5. Having checked several of my copies (5 of them from 1934 to 1940's ) and all do not show a letter "E". All copies show same info. I did copy the codes, and double checked them, unless there is a misprint in all of those years. Or someone had a stamp on the piston line and used a stamp for the valve chamber.

    Piston question

    info from Hudson Mechanical Procedure Manual: Original size of cylinder block is stamped on lower face of Valve chamber. The size code letters and piston weight, in ounces and quarter ounces, stamped on the heads of the pistons. In addition to to the size and weight marks all original pistons installations are numbered to indicate the cylinder block number and the number of the cylinder in which the piston is fitted. Cylinder size and code............................................Piston Code........................................Piston Ring size....................

    Radiator shell appears to be newer than the style of front fenders.

    Hershey 2018

    1963 with some Hudson Essex Terraplane Club Members from Michigan. In a pickup camper, on the way dropped off one guys wife and two kids in Akron Ohio. On the way home with a "very heavily loaded" pickup with four men we started to find tool booth prices significantly higher than cost on way to Hershey. So we tried to reduce cost by bouncing on rear of camper as front wheels went over weight pad, then dashing up to the front and into over cab sleeping area. It worked ! we had some lower costs. I remember camping on the grass just north of the cement stadium, they used little International Harvester tags with strings to be put on rear view mirrors to show you paid $1.00 to camp. Wife and daughter for several years, we rented a Scotty camper from Eytoners (sp) trailer rental High Spier several times I have many pleasant memories of the years...………………...including heat, snow, floods...…..and finding parts! This will be " 55 " years.
