  1. Hello Mathew, Thank you very much for looking it up... Any idea if 1393395 kit (L/R) applies to a 1938 Century?
  2. Would anyone know the GM part # for a tie rod end kit? I have 1393395, but I am not sure it is correct for a Century... All I have are aftermarket #'s as TS71-L and TS71-R... Thank you.
  3. Same as Buicks, Buicks, I cannot find the TorqueTube nor the TorqueTube Index...
  4. Hello Don, I just received a note from Bob Carruba... He set me straight in terms of what kit to purchase for a 1938 series 60, and what the kit contains... You only need TBK343-L... I was mistaken and jumped the gun on my previous post....:( The leaks are indeed a real pain! This is something I have to remedy asap, even though the amount of oil is small... I will do a search for Neil Morse and see if I can follow his instructions... Thank you for the lead.
  5. I was under the impression that cork was better than rubber if handled properly... I just have a problem with the rubber made overseas that turns to mush, especially here in the heat... What I found from Bob's Automobilia was TBK343-L and TBS 368. That is one expensive piece of rubber plus the one gasket if you ask me... The installation process is another matter that I have to gloss over. If you have any tips, I sure welcome them. I do not want to do this twice, since it is not an easy task to detach the driveline from under the car...
  6. Hello again, Can anyone recommend the best seal kit for the torque tube ball that includes all paper gaskets and cork seal? Yes, I would prefer cork over new rubber... Thank you.

  8. Hello there, thank you very much for information and the extra parts pages... Very useful!
  9. Does anyone know what is the correct metering rod gauge for a Carter W-1 (391-S)? Thank you.
  10. Hello all,Anyone close to Mar-K Enterprises in Oklahoma City? I have a set of 7 bed strips 116" long that I need transported to 33066 or 33314 (Fastenal) in FL... Freight charges by the company are astronomical @ $328.00 due to the length... I am not given any other freight options...They could easily fit inside a 4" cardboard tube if needed, but I don't think it is necessary... If someone could pick up from there (for a fee) and take to Greyhound or Fastenal it could have them for next to nothing here... Can anyone help? Thank you.
  11. Do you have any Autolite AN-7 plugs?
  12. Does anyone know if the Lectric Limited 6 volt battery butler is available? The Ceteor unit is available from Belgium but at a crazy price of 700 Euros plus freight... I really don't understand the price difference from a 12 volt unit, which probably averages $120.00 to a 6 volt unit at €700.00??? How different it is really internally and what special components does it have inside to justify that price? It doesn't make much sense... That being said, I wonder how tough would be to modify a 12 volt unit to 6 volts...
  13. Hello there, I am looking for a 1939 0r 1940 Chevrolet (1.5 ton) truck with or without a bed but with a good engine, transmission and complete sheet metal, specially up front... Thank you.
  14. Thanks Carl, I will reach out to him...
  15. I will be disassembling the rear brakes on my 1939 1.5 ton truck shortly and will surely need to get the shoes relined... Can anyone recommend a quality shop that won't take 2 weeks to do the job and can handle either bonded or riveted shoes? Can anyone also confirm the thickness (6.91 mm) needed for these? Thank you.
