  5. We are a helpful Club, the many responses I have seen, to inquiries is heart warming. I try to remember that many questions come from "outsiders" or "nubies" who seem unfamiliar with our formats. In every case we represent AACA and I think we do it helpfully. To receive a Thank You is a gracious reflection, but to try to be helpful to some one is the best part. Happy New Year

  11. Essex in '27 had two sizes of wheels 21" and later 20". In 1928 and '29 used 20 inch wheels
  12. 1929 Essex used 30 by 5 or 20 inch tires. The wheel is for a 1929 Essex The red Essex was called a " sportabout "
  13. I am now in the process of replacing two water jackets on one engine. I have NOS covers and gaskets to replace them. However when removing covers from three other engines I found a clever repair. On one engine a previous repair was performed. A thin sheet of copper tinned on one side with mounting holes was placed next to the block, then the old gasket and the cover was bolted on. This allowed the old cover to be used, maintained water integrity. In my case will allow the use of the old covers with the patina on them. However the bolts will be new, but acid dipped to appear old.
