  1. Hello budd28, I helped another couple in our VCCA Region buy a 31 fire truck a few years ago. If you would to communicate with them let me know. It must have a different rear end than the normal 31 trucks because this is easily a 50 to 55 mph truck. I would be curious if yours is the same. I think regular production trucks were in the 5.75/1 range.
  2. Did you post in the Durant section as well? There is a fellow out of Texas that buys and sells a lot of Star/Durant parts. I think his name is Don. If your tank ends are okay a reputable body shop can make you a new tank with baffles.
  3. Are you sure its not a 1/2" pipe pet cock? Because that would have about a 5/8" external diameter.
  4. So two transmissions were offered for trucks in 1931. One was a 3 speed, and the other was a four speed. I think the owners manual has a diagram of both. You can purchase a copy of this manual at "The Filling Station." 31 was the first year for the revised mounting configuration, and a real bell housing as we know them today.
  5. White "smoke" usually = water. Does not take much to short out the plugs.
  6. Also used on the 28 Chevrolets. Its the 1928 version of the late 80s ABS stickers on many car makes. They could stop in a MUCH shorter distance than their predecesors with 2 wheel brakes. There were still many cars on the road with 2 wheel brakes at that time. I have a recast one I am going to use on my 28 project. I would worry about an original being forcably ripped off at some event.
  7. a sell

    parts wanted

    I have 1 20 rim I have not identified that came with my 29 Chev coupe. I use it as part of a living history display when we go to some car shows. It uses 4 mounting points. If you could send a picture of what you are looking for that would be great. If it is the right type I would let it go. Art beaconb3@gmail.com
  8. The driver of the second car almost looks like a gal. Thgat would be unusual for the day, and if so you would think there might be some sort of a record.
  9. Try Philbin Electric in Portland OR.
  10. I have a transmission for a 39 car. It is very small 9-1/2" long from front flange to rear of torque tube socket. This is the floor shift model not the column shift. It does not have the casting lugs for the e-brake since that would be to the left of the driver . Would like to get $75 plus shipping. Art
  11. The way the light switch looks it is similar to a 28 Chev. If you can save the handle you might be able to get a new switch. The 28 Chevs had two different switches. One had handle mounting tabs set at a 45 degree angle, where as the other one I think the handle is mounted straight across but it could be up and down. They are not interchangeable. The Filling Station carries both.
  12. Our 28 Chrysler used some similar ones. They had wires on both ends, and laced up the middle. Jack Corly in Gresham OR had them in stock. You might check with him.
  13. Recently saw a picture of a 28 Chev roadster pickup from Canada that had a fleetside bed and a smooth finished tailgate. The owner said there was not many made in this pattern. There were a lot of body builders at that time. Hercules pickups had smooth sided metal over wood pickup beds.
  14. I think those wheels can be found. The hub caps may be a different item. When our friend did a concours restoration on her 6-17 the restorer pulled the brass covers off the hub caps and restored them separately. There are the remains of 3 6-14 cars.
  15. Or truck. 29, 30, and possibly 28, and 31 Chev trucks used 6" x 20" rims.
