  2. That was beautiful! I love the sound at the very end. Well done. Richard
  3. Hey Guys, I am new to fords butI am looking at a 1933 ford for sale but I have some concerns about the water temperature and oil pressure gauges. The seller says it doesn't have a water temp gauge or an oil pressure/temp gauge. I say these cars couldn't last 80+ years without this information. What gives? ricosan
  4. Hey Mark, Here is a photo. Not a very good picture but it should have these numbers on the case.
  5. Interested in purchasing a 3spd transmission manufactured by Detroit Gear & Machine around 1930 -'32. Any condition considered. ricosan

    Hey guys, I am looking for a transmission for My 1932 Marmon. It is manufactured by Detroit Gear & Machine and it's a 3 spd, synchromesh. Any condition will be considered. I believe that the numbers on this transmission are as follows; "Detroit Gear & Machine S11 - 1 - D" Any leads appreciated. ricosan
  8. Looking for 3 spd Detroit Gear & Machine transmission for a 1932 Marmon Big eight engine. Any condition will be considered. Thanks ricosan
  9. I had this straight eight manifold successfully "braised" about 3 years ago. I know it looks hopeless! I took it to a local welder who heated the manifold before braising in his makeshift oven. I've put over 4000 miles on the engine since and have experienced no problems. I've since found another manifold in case this one ever fails. Good luck. ricosan
  10. Hey Guys, Sorry I've been awol this past week. Lots happening here. Thanks to all of you for your input. Using woodies formula, I came up with 2570 rpms at 60 mph. My speedometer says 2520 so I think that's close. I was concerned that I might be pushing the engine too hard cruising at 55 - 60 mph. This eases my mind somewhat. Thanks again
  11. Here is a photograph of my speedometer. As you can see it has RPMs indicated at various speeds. Were these numbers reliable figures or were they just a set of numbers that looked good when purchasing a car but really didn't directly correspond to the MPH/RPMs? ricosan
  12. Thanks Spinney, I'll be on the lookout for an 855261. I can always take the arm from the pump I am using now. ricosan
  13. Thanks for the info Bradsan. The cars I'm looking at are fully assembaled. I don't want something that is just a bunch of parts although it's hard to resist sometimes. I want to be able to enjoy the car from the very beginning. I learned on my Marmon how fast you can spend money on a antique car. I've always loved the Auburns. ricosan
  14. I am looking to buy a 1931 Auburn convertible/coupe. I have found several cars on the internet ranging in price from 75K to 125K. What questions should I ask before buying a plane ticket? Anything jump out about these cars that I need to pay special attention to? What is the difference between the 8-98 and the 8-98A? Any help appreciated. ricosan
