  1. Yeah I was lucky my wife let me use our 27 Chev’s in our wedding it was hard picking just a couple of pics as we seemed to have a lot with the cars in them. It’s also hard to believe this all happened 10 years ago. While it was not a shot gun wedding my wife did fall pregnant shortly after I proposed to her and she grew a little in the chest area in the weeks leading up to the wedding, the dress was not really designed for this expansion and turned out to be a little more revealing then planned. A couple of her Aunties were a little shocked but I didn’t here to many other complaints but I also
  2. Yeah here is a couple of pictures of the one on my Chrysler 75 project. Bolted straight to the firewall and the head. My Chrysler 65 has the same set up
  3. Excellent I knew that someone else would definitely know what the prefix was. Yep more photos would definitely be good
  4. I believe the Chrysler 66 had the mechanical fuel pump is there any chance that it has a 66 engine in it? I’m not sure of the correct engine numbers as I don’t have the info close handy at the moment, or is there a chance these engines were fitted at the end of 65 production. Anyway more photos would certainly help.
  5. Thanks for sharing how you made these. Will be very useful when I finally need to make some for my 29 Chrysler 75. Thanks again
  6. Yeah I’m just waiting to see how it all pans out but I’m pretty confident that it will be all good as the clutch people I have it with while not the cheapest but they are very thorough and their work quality is high. Hopefully I will see it next week. I will report back on what plate they used and how it looks. Cheers Ben
  7. Thanks Everyone for the info, I had a call from the clutch people yesterday afternoon saying they thought they had tracked down a modern equivalent but wouldn’t know for sure if it would work until today. So fingers crossed it will work otherwise I might head next door and steal the one out of Dads DA Dodge I’m sure he won’t miss it 🙄🤣. Thanks again and I will keep you posted on what we discover.
  8. Hi Everyone and thanks in advance I’m trying to find a replacement clutch plate for my 1929 Chrysler 65 as my one is cracked and cannot be re-lined. Does anyone now of what other vehicles used the same plate and are interchangeable as this is giving me and the clutch rebuilders a bit of grief. Any help would be really appreciated. Cheers Ben
  9. Hmm they are a beautiful car but it does seem a little odd no steering wheel etc. and I often wonder with cars like that what else is wrong? If it so easy to get on the road why not do so and get the extra dollars! But if the price was right and it was closer by and I had the spare coin I would definitely have a go at it. but that’s a lot of if’s and and’s so I guess I will sit and dream. Thanks for sharing
  10. Just a quick question are any parts interchangeable between a 1929 DA Dodge and a 1928 Standard Six mainly steering box and pitman arm) I’m guessing probably not but you don’t know if you don’t ask. Thanks for any help. Cheers Ben
  11. here’s a couple more photos. The Blue and green Chev is a 1926 model that I have only had a couple of weeks.
  12. Had little car show here today. Was a little disappointed as it seemed only Chevrolets were represented but it was still a fair turnout and the catering was great with German waffles for afternoon tea
  13. Not quite a simple bolt here is a couple of pictures from my 1926 Chev manual. But you can make a bolt work but it has to allow the brake band move in to clamp down on the drum. The arrangement there looks like it is after 1923 as I have a the remains of a 23 and it’s different.
  14. Here is my humble garage. It’s a old Dairy Bales converted. I like it biggest problem is it only fits three cars and I have now got 6
  15. I used the POR15 fuel tank kit about 20 years ago (no problems since) on my 27 Chev the tank was pretty ordinary I followed the instructions and I got loads of rubbish out of it. The only thing different to the instructions that I did was the couple of hand fulls of blue stone I put in the tank while cleaning and shaking the tank to give a bit of extra abrasive action. On the strength of how well it worked the first time I have just completed 2 more tanks for my recently acquired 26 Chevs. Cheers Ben
