  1. I have enjoyed the input from everyone on their efforts, there are many good ideas expressed. I keep looking for ideas on placement of equipment, I am now planning to have some of my small woodworking on upper floor of garage, an idea I got in this thread. Thanks to you all. ///////////////////////// Now just my Ideas to be helpful on barn garage design. Go with 6" floor with re rod in area for hoist, rest can be 4" if you want. If floor plan is not limited by code go 40' by 64' that way posts come out even distances. Two post hoist is more useful for me. I can remove wheels. brakes, axles, exhaust and Trans etc. ///////////////////// I continue to improve my buildings as I go. My work building is stick built on 3 rows of block and is 30' by 40' . Main floor is 12' + high. Gambrel roof, upstairs room is 17' by 40' with 8' ceiling. Main floor is dry walled and insulated with Cellulose insulation (side walls and ceiling). 6" floor with fiberglass embedded and re-rod. 200 amp electrical with outlets every 9'. 12' by 12' door and service door on south end facing my home. stair way is dog leg at rear corner of garage with 5' wide treads, lots of room to move stuff up and down. My current action is to add windows at each end of upper room for summer ventilation and light. Two post 10,000 lb hoist, no worries about floor cracking. Hoist is inset to rear of main floor along side wall. I can store car on hoist and under it too. I can park a car between hoist and door or can work in front of hoist area if I choose. Angled hoist a little to have a cleaner shot to and from hoist thru door. Room for two cars alongside hoist area toward door if needed. Just replaced old fluorescent lights with LED's from Costco, much brighter. My storage pole barn is 40' by 64' by 12' high, with HD trusses to have an upper room 64' by 18' , but no floor needed yet. Two 12' by 12' doors on one end and one 12' by 12' door in center of south long side with a service door. I can see all doors from my house.. Lucite panels 2' by 64' just under overhang on south side for light, (even moonlight is often good enough to get thru without turning on lights) When I had this one built I added 8 mil plastic sheeting under all concrete, No moisture issues thru floor, none in garage building either. This building will have my dirty work stored and operated outside, (sandblasting cabinet and polishing equipment ) I really enjoy having everything all on my property. In the past I had to travel to get parts in rented places and to bring stuff home to work. Retirement is great!
  2. Look like Pontiac to me, around 1929. But I'm not a expert on it
  3. I in the old days, we took a long neck bottle, filled with water, removed air cleaner and operated throttle by hand at moderate speed , just poured water into carb (down draft ) and if engine started to stall completely stopped water and revved engine, then started with water again. With an up draft carb we used my mom's clothes sprinkler ( a cork on a sprinkler head stuck into a bottle of water, she used it to sprinkle clothes when was ironing ) as motor struggled to run we had to race the engine a lot to keep it going. I never knew how full of carbon the muffler was. only once did we just shoot the soot out an exhaust pipe. It's fun remembering things we have not done since last century.
  4. 1959 Taunus, wagon. got it out of a junk yard in 1963 with 32,000 miles. excellent shape except for the sugar in the gas tank that cooked in the carb. Cleaned carb installed new gas filters every two weeks for months and it cleaned it self up. Even loaned it to friend at work, for three months, who's Ford convertible was being repaired after a roll over. Ended up selling it to a Dutch farmer near Saugatuck Michigan when pin in cam drive gear on distributor broke. It had about 45,000 on it then, and was a good little car for the money. Never seen one since
  5. 1930 Essex, Oval rear window, only year.
  6. They are definitely for a battery charger. If you have Red caps, they are for the Negative batt terminal.
  7. Any AC G10 or AC G spark plugs. thank you
  8. Wind Wing lower bracket. The part shown rests on the door sill and there is a hole made inside the window side of door for the pin to be indexed into, The spring portion with the cap would have had the lower wind wing glass holder. The coiled spring is a tight fit into the lower glass holder ( missing) Another smaller unit would be installed on the upper door window opening. The wind wing glass could be moved to control air deflection. A precursor to front vent windows. This appears VERY similar to my 1932 Essex Terraplane item. Note: My wind wing parts I had at Hershey are still packed, will not be home for another week, but I thing part number may be checked and them i may identify.
  9. 1934 and 35 Hudson & Terraplane windshield actuator Nice picture of 30 Essex too !
  10. Looking for leads of Car makes to look at to identify: Four door sedan, no ID plate. Several unique features. 1. bottoms of doors are Round, bottom corners have about 6 inch radius. 2. doors do not close flush with body, they overlap all around. Windows: are very unique. 3. Front door windows are taller than wide. BUT the top of the window slopes down from the B post to the A post. Front of window glass is 3 inches shorter than rear. 4. Second door glass has a square shape, about 1 1/2 foot tall and wide. 5. Rear window is very long, about 2 1/4 feet by 1 1/2 tall. Body. 6. looks like very early Twenties styling. 7. front seat frame is not adjustable, is bolted at top of seat frame to B post. 8. Body is steel, with a raised belt line about 1/4 inch thick by 1 1/4 wide. 9. Roof, Top of body is very flat, appears as tho it had a flat roof. 10. Body, rear seat area is very roomy, but front seat is very cramped especially the front floor area. 11. Cowl has two flat ledges running forward on each side, My supposition> that the grill shell had a matching flat lips on it on each side.

    CARB ?????

    looks just like the up draft carb on my Briggs and Stratton 8 hp flat head motor, on my ditch pump. Hans
  12. To dibarlaw, Thank you very much for the return info. I am already packed for Hershey, and will continue to search, that is the fun! Thanks again Hans
  13. To dibarlaw: Thank you for you helpfulness in providing excellent spark plug info. I am sure others besides my self will find it very helpful. Do you have spark plug info on an AC G10. The original plugs as specified in the 1930 Essex owners manual are AC G10. This is what are in my car. So far I have been unable to locate literature with a cross reference to show heat range or other plugs to use. Last fall at Hershey I did find AC W plugs. Do you have SP sheets that may show the use, comparison, heat range ? This year will be my 53 rd year attending Hershey! Thank you Hans
  14. Barneys place was amazing. Cars stacked two, three high on top of each other. Other cars were suspended on hooks and chains hanging from beams over other cars below them. There were three or four long buildings just crammed. Plus cars out side. The "word was" that he had 500 cars there. In one building there were the special cars that sat on the hard packed oil soaked floor. Lighting was, daylight thru the open door. Inside we had to switch on work lights hanging in various places. I went there with Peter Jones in 1963 to look for Hudson and Essex parts, and to just luxuriate in the ambiance. Later I attended all the auctions and helped Jim Sutcliffe being home a 1937 Buick 90 series Limo. Now almost 60 years later I have the room and the desire, but Barnies cars are gone.
