  1. Opinions are like elbows. Most everyone have a couple, and yes, I have first hand knowledge of manure spreaders. Zeke
  2. Personally, I would rather ride in a manure spreader. To each his own and there is no accounting for taste. Zeke
  3. According to an article in Skinned Knuckles, your headlight lenses are Depress Beam number H100-95. The same lens is used 1929-1930 52,70,72,75,77,90. Zeke
  4. 1940-1941 Graham Hollywood’s had them from the factory. Zeke
  5. Did anyone else notice that there is a spare tire inside of the Trunk? How would you like to retrieve that from the trunk? Zeke
  6. You take the van. I'll just browse around the inside and pick out a few things I have been needing. Zeke
  7. I spotted a 1935 DeSoto Airflow that I once owned a few years back at quadruple what I sold it for. That was slightly painful. Zeke
  8. How hot would it have been inside of that car during the summer? Wow. Zeke
  9. Jack: Thanks. After I saw your calipers I started thinking. I have a slightly simpler set somewhere. Sure enough I rambled around and found them. A bit cruder than yours, but they served the purpose. I am still on the hunt for a 1750 but for now I am satisfied. Thanks for the help. Zeke
  10. Thanks, I have one of his, but I need to measure the inside of my drum. I will search the Plymouth site.
  11. Does anyone have the complete brake tool they would sell? I find myself in need of one. Thanks. Zeke
  12. The owner certainly liked side mounts and add on trunks. Zeke
  13. I used the finest grade steel wool (0000) and basically polished mine. A little effort but effective. Zeke
  14. We are talking about a filter made of wire mesh similar to a Scotch Brite pad aren’t we? Just making sure. Zeke
  15. I am going through something similar on my ‘33 brakes. Imagine my surprise to find that the nut on the back of the plate didn’t move the cam on the front of the plate. I had it spot welded in three or four places and that seems to have fixed the problem. Zeke
  16. I use parts cleaner on my oil bath element. Works fine. Let it set to drain or use compressed air to dry it. I use 50 wt. oil in mine. Zeke
  17. Now you tell me after I spent thirty minutes looking for a couple of washers in my spare parts bin today! Lol. Zeke
  18. I bought a set of bonded shoes. It is difficult to tell how old they are but I suspect they aren’t more than a couple years old. Time will tell. Zeke
  19. I am in the process of refreshing the brakes on my 1933 Dodge. The car had set dormant for several years and the brakes need attention. What I have discovered is that the bond between the brake shoes and lining have failed. Two out of four wheels have linings which have separated from the shoe. I am more comfortable with riveted shoes but they are less common than bonded shoes. What are your experiences with brake shoes? Any failures?
  20. If you are talking about the Omega “bent” key, I was lucky enough to find one that a street rodder was selling off of a DeSoto. I got the lock, cable and coil in the deal. The key is sloppy, but still works. Keep looking, a few are still out there. The ignition key may be cut differently from the door key. Zeke
  21. Have you tried backing the brake shoe adjustment screws back? The drum puller works better without resistance from the shoes. Zeke
  22. I use the term Victoria coupe for body styles like this with the hat box in the rear seat. Zeke
  23. That is what I am looking for! Thanks Mark. Zeke
