  1. I guess I need to pull mine apart to see what all is going on in there.
  2. I was hoping for a new replacement with the inner pieces as well.
  3. Looking for a source for these sockets. They are two wire. Has the side cutouts where an arm comes off the taillight and holds it.
  4. Thank you, that was my thought too.
  5. Thank you. They did keep it off the ground. The drums themselves were full of dirt and sand and what used to be brake shoe linings. But the rest of it was saved. Will have to buy a few pieces but she should come back to life.
  6. Thank you. Both were trashed and had to persuade them off the axle.
  7. Going to need new drums. What year were these off of? Thanks
  8. Yup, I'm thinking, 1957 Oldsmobile. Thanks!
  9. What vehicle is this from?
  10. Did Pontiac use an artillery wheel in the 30`s? I know Chevrolet did but wasn't sure about the Pontiacs.
  11. Not saying that this is the best way and probably not in the top 100 so use it as a cautious suggestion as the carb is sensitive. But..... one time I needed to get fuel to the pump so I took a plastic spray paint lid and drilled a hole so that my rubber tipped air nozzle would poke through it. I placed the cap over the fuel filler neck and held it down and gave the tank a shot of air from my compressor. Just a quick pull of the trigger was enough pressure to get the gas moving. Just remember these carbs only like 1 or 2 psi.
  12. I don't have photos, but here is the parts diagram if it helps.
  13. Good, hope it helps you out in your quest. Hmmmm, I do possibly need a few pieces. I'm not sure if I still have pics of that car any more or not. I'll have to check.

  15. I thought I remember seeing a little bit of green around the bellhousing/clutch cover area but that was a few years ago and could be mistaken. Unfortunately I did not remove my manifolds as they looked good and worked properly. I have a few more pics that's shows some of the manifold flanges but not much. Which ones do you need to know about specific? I might be able to get some pics for you tonight.
  16. Chris, you probably can't see what you're looking for in this pic bit I thought I'd post it just in case.
  17. Deac, take some pics and post then please.
  18. Is yours a 90 degree fitting? if so I had trouble finding one like that. I used one that was a little different. This is similar http://www.studebakerparts.com/studebakerparts/store/s/agora.cgi?product=brakes4& also jeeps used some. https://www.4wheelparts.com/Brakes-Steering/Crown-Automotive-Brake-Fitting-JA000557.aspx?t_c=65&t_s=22&t_pt=101655&t_pn=CROJA000557&utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&scid=scplpCROJA00055790941&sc_intid=CROJA00055790941&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIwdCP6uXZ1gIVkYhpCh0GbgTDEAQYASABEgLLFPD_BwE
  19. Looks like mine is missing the cross bar between the lamps. The lower bar at the outer end curves down where it attaches to the fender. In the car above it look like it straight but I cant quite see all of it.
  20. I have not taken the housing apart yet. But here are a few more pics. No adjusting screw in the back.
