  1. Please be patient DodgeNZ I am in Australia and get items from Cindy and Tom (Myers) all the time. They do travel to swap meets and may well be away, (or, on holiday) the email myersedp@aol.com does not bounce back from here, please give it another try.
  2. myersedp@aol.com Please remember they run a part time business in conjunction with the farm so be patient if Cindy does not respond immediately. They are lovely people who provide a fantastic service.
  3. The smell of rubber is the tyres locking and skidding. the external shoes should be held off the drum in three places one at the top, one at the rear and the adjustment at the front so they should not be able to pulled on without mechanical leverage. the hand brake shoe is a single spring return shoe cast in one piece these can crack which could allow the shoe to catch and be pulled on by the drum rotation. pull the rear wheels off and inspect the internal shoe for cracks as a first step. i would also not discount the diff locking up.
  4. As I understand it the support ring goes between the engine and the gearbox bellhousing. There are dowel locators on the engine to locate the support ring and hold the engine in position while the gearbox is mounted.
  5. The starter generator requires a two piece angular bearing at one end to be able to withstand both the axial load and the radial load when combining the starter action and the generator action.
  6. Ralph Provan is the gentleman’s name He can be contacted on email. rod777@mac.com He lives in Seymour, Victoria, Australia.
  7. Perhaps check the float levels in the carburettor?
  8. More details on your system please. I am not sure how you can run the vacuum tank and an electric pump. The vacuum tank causes fuel to be drawn into the holding tank and monitored by a float providing fuel to the carburettor via gravity. fitting an electric pump provides fuel under pressure as the carburettor float lowers Any electric fuel pump would need to be under 2 psi but still not both pump and vacuum surely?
  9. Apologies, I have been busy with work and play so missed the contact request. The engineer is in his eighties, does not have a business as such and has no email. i will contact him to see what can be done regarding contact details.
  10. Willy, were you able to obtain some bolts? If not I have some spare here in Australia.
  11. Both my cars, 17 Roadster and 19 Touring seal tight on the cap and have an overflow pipe so will never pressurise. Your car should too.
  12. Depending on the year of you DB car Tom and Cindy Myers have replacements available I believe for the North East 10002 distributor fitted to late teens and early to mid 20’s cars.
  13. Safety glass is different to laminated glass safety glass in the early days was glass that shattered (crazed) into tiny bits rather than large shards like ordinary glass but usually held together unless a hole was punched through it however very difficult to see out of a shattered windscreen. This style of windscreen had no torsional strength so a twisting chassis / body could easily break it. Laminated glass is as you say two layers of glass sandwiching a plastic film. Did Dodge Brothers have safety glass? Not sure.
  14. They are very expensive to make and many are damaged. Mine were welded at the drum end when I got the car to prevent the internal nut holding the brake drum from loosening. I will find one today and post the size details of each portion. Nige.
