  6. for hanging plates. I use two nails on the top plate and I use large paper clips cut into a C shape to hold all the lower plates together.
  7. Been trying to acquire this one for years
  8. Looking for info on how the wires were originally ran. The original wires are taped together with electrical tape and are a mess so I am redoing them. I have a dual filament bulb so their are two wires. Did they lay loose in the wire holders? Was there a sleeve over them? Were they bound every so many inches? I have peeled back some electrical tape and see what Looks like a 3/8" fabric tape binding. Any help would be appreciated.
  9. @pont35cpe THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I did not realize that it was soldered on the bulb end. I got it apart and only mildly burned myself.
  10. @pont35cpe I called Kurt and he did not have anything available. I have everything apart and was wondering how you joined what looks like modern wiring to the bakelite (or whatever it is) spring assembly. It does not appear that it disassembles. Thank you, Allen
  11. Thanks, I'll get with Kurt. One of the filaments on my bulb was out. The wiring is in bad shape as well. Needs addressed for sure.
  12. I guess I need to pull mine apart to see what all is going on in there.
  13. I was hoping for a new replacement with the inner pieces as well.
  14. 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.
  15. Thank you, that was my thought too.
  16. 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.
  17. Thank you. Both were trashed and had to persuade them off the axle.
  18. Going to need new drums. What year were these off of? Thanks
  19. Yup, I'm thinking, 1957 Oldsmobile. Thanks!
  20. What vehicle is this from?
