  1. Anyone have a good source/shop or literature for rebuilding a completely worn out clutch for a 1929 Dictator?

    '68 Camaro Price

    My wife's uncle has a '68 Camaro RS/SS that he bought new. In the mid-80's, he took it to a local body shop. He told the shop to tear it down and fix any rust spots and fix any spots that have been known to rust on Camaro's. After a year, he got the car back took it home and parked it. Hasn't been out of the garage since. I have seen ranges for these anywhere from about 20k to 50k. What is a reasonable price to pay?
  4. Is this an inside or outside mount? I need an outside mount under the windshield overhang with the on/off thru the top of the windshield frame.

    Tire Cover

    Since there is much knowledge in this group, I have another question. Where can I find a new, I guess its some kind of canvas, spare tire cover for the tire that goes in the front left fender? I put new tires on today and I took the cover off it it is showing signs of age with holes developing in it.

    Dykes Manual

    Thank you. I knew it had to be a few years later but didn't know exactly how far out.
  9. For a 1929 Dictator, which Dykes edition would be the best one to buy?

    Waiting on a tow

    ***UPDATE*** She is running again!!! I got the starter back from the shop. There are 2 positive and 2 negative terminals inside and 2 were loose. They tightened those up and clean it up a little. Put it back in and it turned over. Now for the just turning off part. I had help from a friend mechanic who works on hot rods and older cars in general. He helped me get the starter back in. We cranked it up and it ran for a minute or two while we talked. We were discussing it cutting off and while we were talking, well it shut off. We got to looking at the distributor and coil and we weren't getting anything. We looked at the wires coming from the "key" switch and one of the wires was slightly loose. We tightened it up and that seems to be it. It even cranks up A LOT faster now. I am a HAPPY camper!!! Hopefully it warms up again in a few days so I can get it out and wash it down.

    I tried it again and I am getting resistance. What was going on, I was not pushing the hand crank in enough to engage the motor.

    I pulled the starter and put it on the ground and hooked it up to a spare 6 volt battery and it seems to run as it should without any smoke. But for safe measure, I'm sending it off to have it checked. When I get it back I'll go from there.
