  1. Continental 6T engine in a 1922 case... we need one piston. Pictures attached... These measurements are done with a tape measure - so close, but not 100%. If we can find something close, we can verify the fine details. 4-1/2" tall, 3=3/4" diameter, 1-1/8" hole with 2-1/16 above hole to top and 1-5/16 below hole to bottom. Any leads or options will be greatly appreciated!
  2. Hello, looking for a correct orange , black and gold oval Purolator sticker. I have only found the decals for the Packard and this is not what I need. I did find a picture of the decal I am looking for. Hoping this helps! Any assistance is greatly appreciated!
  3. Hello! On a bit of a goose chase trying to find Thompson ES15 tie rod ends. Hoping someone may have a lead? Any help will be greatly appreciated!
  4. 1923 Jordan, Continental Special Vertical L-Head, 245.6 cu inch, leak at rear seal on Continental engine crankshaft I learned some Continental 6-cylinder engines of the 1922 - 1924 era do not have a rear oil seal, but have a flanged crankshaft that throws oil forward into the oil pan. I think my engine is a Continental Special Vertical L-Head, 245.6 cu inch. I read that on these engines, the cap is not slotted, and there no way to attach an "O", a gasket, or rope seal. How can we fix the rear main seal leak? Were there any updates to this system?

  11. Hello, Does anyone know how to remove the left rear hub for a 1914 Chalmers Big 6?
  12. Thanks, Mark, I found that both of our saddles are incorrect. One is stamped 530, the other 420. I would gladly sell them but need to find the #418 pair. Any suggestions are appreciated. I have posted on the Dodge Brothers' Facebook page and looked on Ebay. Will keep hunting...
  13. So sorry but I can not see a link posted. Could you please add the link to this reply?
  14. Thank you for the reply! Page 2 of what supplier catalog? Attached are photos of the 2 brackets we have. The one on the driver's rear latches together, but the one on the passenger rear seems to be missing something to keep the latch closed. They are similar but not exactly the same.
  15. We are looking for one or a pair of saddle brackets for the 1922 Dodge Tourer. We bought it not noticing that the 2 on it do not match and need a good set. Photos of the part would be greatly appreciated
