  1. I do not get Hemmings now, but they uses to publish various copies. You might find the oldest one that could cover the years you want. I have the 6th edition pub in1937, it covers things back 10 years. good luck
  2. 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

  4. Boy and Girl with Cadillac Chevrolet and Cadillac
  5. mounting bracket looks like 33 or 34 Terraplane
  6. I worked at Ford when the "2" was there I took Grand Sons on Thursday before Thanksgiving, the wife on Tuesday after Thanksgiving and saw it again last Thursday With the "Z" guys. I did enjoy the movie I think there are some things done to enliven the story but Miles was the real Hero. He made the car.
  7. Get a paper plate and press against wheel then trace holes with pencil. Then measure diameter of holes
  8. Essex in '27 had two sizes of wheels 21" and later 20". In 1928 and '29 used 20 inch wheels
  9. 1929 Essex used 30 by 5 or 20 inch tires. The wheel is for a 1929 Essex The red Essex was called a " sportabout "
  10. 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.
  11. Hidden starter switch in Ash tray was likely a theft deterrent. At one Car Co I worked for, test cars used same key and had start switch wired to trunk popper located in glove box.
  12. Well, the problem seems to be getting out the drivers door. I do not know what vehicle, but if there was room..... Put wood ramp length of floor on drivers side, and a 4 inch angle iron the length of passenger side to keep vehicle from sliding sideways. Then of course tie it down. Evaluate clearance to drivers door opening and to Passenger side of car to trailer wall, jounce clearance too. Shim drivers side as needed. May be the cheapest way .
  13. Ford was and is looking for "white box's" to fit into. It is always a very calculated risk to develop and enter an open space. ( white box )
  14. Top manifold looks like an exhaust, with a thermostat control as used in the '30 40's. Lower manifold is quite old, likely late teens to 20's. carburetors appear to be Marvels. fron late teens to 20's, with heat pipe connections. Can you find any numbers on the castings to help
  15. Not coming up on Ebay, but: Depending on. measurements similar to Hudson or Essex for 29, the shadow outline of head light bracket looks a little too oval for Essex. Also the hood lip, has angle that is not Essex Amazing how similar a lot of cars were.
  16. just a note: a 1929 Essex manual lists engine fan, "specify color".
  17. The carb is on the other side of the engine.
  18. auburn seeker, He is putting oil into the engine. You may not recall the type of oil can with a goose neck pivoted from the lower side and a trigger to permit the oil to flow. The Essex engine has the oil inlet opening on the lower side of the engine block. The oil container shown is made with a rolled lip on the top to prevent oil spilling when put at extreme angles, needed for some installations of oil.
  19. 1927 Essex sportabout, no belt line on body so early one.
  20. my 1932 Essex Terraplane has the oil and generator lights on the dash
  21. It has been a long time but: One seals down the other seals up. The stuck one may have to be separated and removed upward.
  22. I am thankful to have been born an American, and raised in this wonderful country. Our country has often aided those less fortunate, in far off lands. Now I am fortunate to be able to support our Military people and the Military with taxes. Remember: we served so every one has the right to express their opinions, it is in ourselves to individually demonstrate the our beliefs are worth while. Hans Jacobsson United States Navy 1958 to 1964
