  1. The radiator looks more like an Overland than it does a Peerless. I don't remember Overland having louvers on the hood at that time. Here is a picture of a 1906 or 07 Perless with a great view of the radiator. Dan

  3. You might check and see if air is being sucked into your cooling system. A good place it start checking is your water pump. It will suck air but not leak water. AIr being sucked in through the water pump will cause foam and overheating. I had a Model A Ford doing that until I repacked the water pump and I have not had a problem with foam on the radiator since. A couple of other folks have done the same thing. The car won't overheat as easy when there is no foam in the cooling system also. Dan
  4. West, Is this axle that is broken on your Brush the front one by any chance?
  5. Here is where it should be locateds. This is where mine was when I restored my car. This tag is a repo and I can't remember where I got it. Dan
  6. What you have already is a good. For a caravan type of event you should have good written detailed directions to hand out to all drivers. Other things that should be written in the directions are; Follow all traffic regulations. (no running red lights to keep up) Use turn or hand signals when turning Don't bunch up, keep a good distance between vehicles (no tailgating) Allow enough time for your drive (Don't rush the drive) (Don't let it become a road race) Dan
  7. I use Mobil Lubriseal 2000. It is a semi-fluid extreme presure greese that is used for lubercation on center piviot irrigation systems. I have had no problem with using it. I use it in all six of my older vehicles. It comes in a 5 gal can. Dan
  8. <span style="font-style: italic">So just because they are a judge doesn't mean they know everything</span> There are those on this forum that think they do, huh?
  9. 31 Ford 31 Chevys do not have hudraulic brakes and there is a manual spark advance on the dash. There are other fetures that Chevy has that the Ford doesn't have like 6 cylinder engine with more HP, better styling and others. Remember that 1931 was the year Cheverolet became #1 over Ford.
  10. That 1930 2 door sedan is not in as bab of shape as you might think. That would be a good one to start with.
  11. Pat, You include tractors on the AACA judging field, the next thing you would want would be manure spreaders. I am sure you would see a lot of folks not rejoin AACA at the end of the year because it would then be the Good Old Boys Back Slapping Club and be the laughing stock for the automobile hobby. Those folks leaving AACA would be welcomed by other clubs for automobiles with open arms. The honors you have won with your vehicles would not mean very much now would they if they are associated with tractors and the like. Leave tractors out of AACA. Dan
  12. Try a surplus store. The one here has several diffrent widths and colors.
  13. When some of your restorations are older than a lot of the cars on the field. <img src="http://forums.aaca.org/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />
  14. Steve, Is that your 4-H project for this year? <img src="http://forums.aaca.org/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />
  15. Fred, I have run the 3076 in my 14 Buick B-25 for over 8 years and put maybe 3,500 miles on the car and they have done me good service. Last year I drove the Buick over 500 miles on a HCCA Tour in Oregon with out a miss. I run my gap at .025. I might try .040 and see if that might make a diffrence. I might have to get a set of 3077 plugs and see how they work. I also run the 3076 in my 22 Buick six cylinder for several years and have had no problems. The 3076 are shorter than the Champion and will not short out when I put the side cover on over the plugs. Dan
  16. Just checking. <img src="http://forums.aaca.org/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" /> <img src="http://forums.aaca.org/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" /> <img src="http://forums.aaca.org/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />
  17. Hey Chuck, Did they run out of manure spreadedrs down there? <img src="http://forums.aaca.org/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" /> <img src="http://forums.aaca.org/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" /> <img src="http://forums.aaca.org/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" /> You have to remember what Gene French says about Buck Rakes.
  18. Correct me if I'm wrong, but did you fine expert AACA judges just put down a AACA member and his vehicle on this forum? First, one of you went and pointed out a problem with a member?s car, state where it was when you saw it and what kind of car it was! That told everyone that was there who you were referring to! Then another has to be a hero and show the rest of the world which car it was, by posting a picture of it! You showed great presence with that one there. I wonder what the owner would feel like in seeing his car pictured on this forum, talking about him and pointing out a problem. Is this what this forum has come to? Is this some new form of AACA fellowship and judging? And no Wayne, you don't get "invited" to a AGNM. You earn your way there by winning your Senior award! Study the AACA first and then pass along your fine knowledge. I want to thank each of you for reaffirming why it was I stopped judging in the AACA and showing my cars in it. Hopefully, somebody will delete this entire post and hopefully save this AACA member any further embarrassment by having his car shown on here. I wouldn't blame new member seeing this to decide that another club might be better than this and not want to join the AACA. Dan
  19. Mark, Is the 3077 the same length as the 3076? Dan Good talking to you in Bakersfield.
  20. From another post he made on the Buick Forum it is a 1923 Buick six cylinder.
  21. Most modern spark plugs are a little longer than the old ones and when you put the side cover on your engine the plugs will short out. I found that Autolite #3076 are shorter than the others. The 3076 are tractor plugs. I use them on my 22 Buick and my 14 Buick. The bases are blued when you get them so you don't have to hide the cad plating.
