  1. Do you just need the gears and not the shafts? The gears are easy to reproduce. Want to send me a gear to check out?
  2. Could also be a wood pattern for a brass casting.
  3. Don't see why silicone Dot 5 wouldn't work. Used it in my 1933 Chevy for over 30 years with no problem. Street rod, not original cable brakes.

    Hood Script

    Got a picture or an original?
  5. I used to make some like them for 1946-48 Fords.
  6. I use PayPal for most of my selling and buying on eBay. The only thing I found out about them recently is that after eBay says a deal is too old to request q refund, PayPal will let them ask for a refund for unto 6 MONTHS!! That to me stinks as they could ruin a part and still claim a refund..
  7. I have a customer that needs a good lock cylinder and key for a 1935 REO . There are probably other cars that use the same lock. Anyone know of a locksmith that deals in these older locks?? The cylinder is 1/2" in diameter and total length is 1 3/4" .
  8. I am wondering what your car is. I have had a 1933 Chevy 3 window coupe (no rumble seat trunk), for over 50 years. I see a 1933 hood ornament but a lot of differences. Nice car.
  9. I have been making up door handles for the 1931+ REOs and have come up with a way to replace the factory retainers without ruining the original handles. I know other auto makers used the same type of retainers and they are often broken. They were pressed onto the handle over a thin washer. I have come up with a way to replace them with a snap ring. Here are a couple pictures of the retainers (both plain and the decorative style). The decorative retainers are made to match your original style and either nickle plated or chromed. If anyone is interested, just let me know. Greg Coleman/Chevi Shop Custom Casting ,.
  10. Thanks for all the replies. I am going to repair it and see if it will sell.
  11. Thanks. I realize that..... Just wondered what the tag might have been on the front.
  12. This is an old Boyce Motometer. What car might it have been used on? It tilts back to add water. Has threads inside the base. 11 inches wide from wing tip to wing tip. Diameter of the base is 2 7/8 inside. A medallion may have been on the front with 4 small pins. The release lever for the tilt is an eagle head. And yes it was broken just a day or two ago. I have the broken off wing.
  13. Pot-Metal restoration in Florida used to do as great job of this sort of work. Don't have a number or address.
  14. How about bead blasting it clean and then coating it with lead or tin?
