  1. Throw some more wood in the stove and light the kerosene lamps.
  2. Hi All Have an elderly neighbor who wants to sell his A, it’s in very nice shape and runs well. Always kept inside.He has owned it for a number of years but doesn’t really know any of the prior history. Going to look at it next week and get some pictures and more info. Has a rumble seat and spare on fender. Looking for a ballpark range of value, I’m into T’s and not we’ll versed on A’s, any help appreciated. The car will be for sale soon. N.Y. State. Tyler
  3. Wow, thank you Steve/ Jill, I thought interest in these older autos was supposed to be fading. Guess not!
  4. Thank you all for sharing your thoughts, I appreciate it.
  5. Thanks everyone, yes, I would just get another tranny and steering column from a later car. I’ve got a ‘41 Special but it’s too nice to part out. Where is Dave Tacheny from?
  6. I prefer a column shift transmission and am thinking about replacing the floor shift in my ‘38 Special with one from a later year. Other than the purists objecting, what problems would I encounter, if any?
  7. Sebastian Thank you very much for sharing your photos with everyone. Beautiful cars and beautiful scenery, I really enjoyed that. Tyler

To all the above. Must be the economy really is good. I thought they realized very good prices for an auction. I'm only knowledgeable Ina few makes but I feel most of those cars brought very good
  9. Yes, just the socket Mr. Hinson. Would be great if you have one. What would you like for it? Thanks . Tyler
  10. Need to replace one of mine and don't see them in the catalog. So what's a fella to do, something else that will work? Tyler
  11. Thank you once again, Don. I would have thought the other way around. Glad I asked. Tyler
  12. Hopefully going to install the engine in the 38 Special today. Should the new engine mounts be installed in the car or on the engine? Either way, this does not look like it's going to go in without a struggle. Any advice from someone that's done this before would be great. Tyler
  13. Thanks, Don. I guess you shim until things are snug.
  14. Maybe I should have said "torque ball" I got a torque ball shim kit and new type of seal.
  15. Finally getting ready to install the rebuilt 248 in my '38 Special. How do you determine what is needed for shims on the torque tube? I can't seem to find that in the Manuel. Any other tips/ hints anyone can share on this procedure or anything to watch for? Really want to get this in right. Thanks . Tyler
  16. Yes, Carl, that's it. Thank you for the picture and explanation and thanks everyone for your help. Tyler
  17. Ok, '38's didn't originally have a filter, that's why I couldn't find an image of one. The hole I was referring to is just below where the distributor mounts on the block, as shown in the picture above. What is the purpose of the bolt that goes in the hole? I do have a shop Manuel but someone else is using it and I'll have it back tomorrow . Thanks for responding and for the excellent photo. Tyler
  18. Lost all my "before" pictures of my engine removal. Not sure how the plumbing goes on the oil filter or if it was correct in the first place. If anyone can explain where the bottom and side lines attach it would be a great help. Detailed pictures of both sides of the engine installed in the car would be a Godsend. Also, what is the purpose of the threaded hole in the center where the distributor goes in the block? Any help greatly appreciated. Tyler
  19. Found the missing part. It's a long story on why it was missing and it involves the local raccoons. All is well now and thanks for the advice and offers to help. Tyler
  20. Wasn't there something about using a later ('48 or so comes to mind) thermo housing to get away from this setup? I don't mean to hijack this thread but I am currently reassembling my engine and don't dare for the original system.
  21. Thank you all so much. I'm going to search for the part today and will be in contact if I can't find it. I'm in western N.Y. Tyler
  22. Thanks Don. I knew something was amis. Don't suppose anyone has a picture of the carrier? Thanks for the help, greatly appreciated. Tyler
  23. Bought a new Throwout bearing and it appears to be way too big. It's the bearing that both CARs and Bobs show for a '38 special, #1505. Of course we can't find the old one to compare it to. Is there supposed to be a sleeve or something that fits inside it? Also need the rubber part that goes on the side of the bell housing where the clutch fork goes through. Any ideas? I'm asking these questions for the guy rebuilding my engine so I hope I'm explaining things properly . Tyler
