  1. THANKS SOOOO MUCH to everyone who's been kind enough to help us with this. (As well as all of our other "problems".) NEAR: Thanks for the phone number, too! Dodge Brothers RULE (as does AACA!)..... Thanks again to each of you for your input. Pooh (for the garage guys.) <img src="http://www.aaca.org/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif" alt="" />
  2. Thanks all for your rapid response.....we'll get this thing up and running (dependably, that is) sooner or later..... Pooh & Co.
  3. Thanks, NearChoclatetown, for the prompt reply! I'll get the "boys" on your lead - and will post back if they need phone number or more info. Oh, yes - the "other" problem. We're now waiting for a visit by a DB "specialist" - hopefully he'll be able to work out something, i.e., date/time, with our "master mechanic"! Taken the DB to two local shows and it did extremely well - but just can't trust it yet to go too far afield without trailering. Thanks again - and we'll probably be in touch! Pooh + Co.
  4. Can anyone out there tell me what brand gear lube we need to use on our 1925 DB Sedan transmission? The manual calls for heavy gear oil - but I'd like to know what others are using, brand, etc. Thanks! Pooh + Co.
  5. Thanks once again to everyone for taking the time to help us figure out this problem. Will (the "owner") is so anxious to get his baby on the road (for a roundtrip, i.e., to actually drive it TO and FROM a destination!) that he can taste it - it's his first restored "fun" car. You-all are great for taking the time and scratching your heads with us on this problem. Tim (the "brains" behind the restoration) works 12-hour days and nights and it's hard for him to get computer time to talk with you-all on this forum - so when someone responds with a thought - I'll keep printing them out and passing them along so he can follow thru on your suggestions when he gets some downtime from his job. Again: A HUGE THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO IS HELPING WITH SUGGESTIONS AND THINGS FOR THEM TO TRY. Sign me an extremely grateful "Wife and Mother" <img src="http://www.aaca.org/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />
  6. You guys are awsome! Thanks so much for the rapid-fire responses. I'll print out the feedback for Will and Tim to read and Tim can tell from this what he might have already tried - and the idea about a "working" session/meeting sounds like a plan that would be fun (for all of us)....we'll see what they can do with these suggestions - then we'll be in touch....and, guys! THANKS SO MUCH! The wife and mother (and mediator) <img src="http://www.aaca.org/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />of Will and Tim!
  7. <img src="http://www.aaca.org/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" /> Will and Tim Got the 1925 DB sedan out and running for the first time last week. Seemed to run okay until it heated up. Started sputtering and backfiring something horrible...was able to limp back home - but just barely.....had to keep pulling the plugs - they were fowling....then would be able to putter along at 3-5 mph. (LONG TRIP - actually only about 2 miles!) The coil was burned. They replaced the coil with a "modern" coil and still not running worth a darn - timing off and loading up with fuel and backfiring - ANY MECHANICS IN OHIO WHO HAVE ANY IDEAS WHAT THEY NEED TO DO NOW? Tim's about at the end of his rope (and now I understand his affinity for HR's and SR - he understands the modern engines much better than this DB). Any mechanics out there who would be willing to tackle this problem (living in Ohio - I will personally deliver it to you on a trailer!)- my life will be unbareable until they get this thing running? Will and Tim are really hurting - they are sooooo close <img src="http://www.aaca.org/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif" alt="" />to getting this wonderful old restoration on the road - but these "little" things keep cropping up! <img src="http://www.aaca.org/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" /> <img src="http://www.aaca.org/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" /> Thanks for any help you can give us.

  8. Can anyone tell us if it's possible to use a "late model" coil (say a Delco Remy coil or VW or Ford) on a 1925 DB? When we purchased the car (not in running condition) it had a Delco Remy coil - but we didn't know if it worked and replaced it with a NE Electric model. Now we find that the leads to the terminal post have overheated and melted on this NE Electric model. The lead wires on this coil have burned or appear to have shorted out at the top of our coil just underneath the housing where the terminal studs are located which has damaged the wires enough that we don't think a repair is possible....anyone have any idea why this happened? Thanks for your help in this head scratcher...... Will and Tim
  9. We're just about ready to roll it out - but we need a horn bellows for our 1925 DB Business Sedan.....Anyone out there have any thing available? Also we are still looking for an outside (metal - not fabric) visor with mounting hardware - no luck so far......
  10. Bob: Do you still have the visor????? We're interested.....please contact me. Pooh Bear
  11. DH and son have had such wonderful success on this forum, they want me to try again: Can anyone please tell me (them!): How is the supply fuel line routed to the vacuum tank from the fire wall? Does it run up the driver's side portion of the fire wall or does it come up next to the vacuum tank? Thanks in advance! Pooh Bear - for the real "DB Mechanics" in the family <img src="http://www.aaca.org/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />
  12. Posted earlier - no replies - please someone must have a lead on a visor (windshield - outside) for a 1925 Dodge Brothers Business Sedan....... Anyone out there???? Haven't been able to find one anywhere yet and am getting desperate.....please.....

  13. I would like to know if anyone could provide a picture of a window visor for our car (model: 1925 Dodge Brothers business sedan), because there is some confusion about what it is suppose to look like?!? and if someone by chance might have one for sale. Any one help us out here??? You've come to the rescue several times for us on this project - - thanks! Pooh
  14. Re: 1925 DB Sedan restoration If the battery is connected and the ignition key is in OFF position will the foot starter switch still activate? <img src="http://www.aaca.org/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" /> Thanks again - <img src="http://www.aaca.org/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" />
  15. Purchased a 1925 DB sedan 3 years ago and am doing a ground up restoration....starting the wiring process and realize that there is no key available for the ignition switch assembly. Tried several locksmiths in our area (Central Ohio) - only one who would attempt to make a key said he broke several blanks trying to make new key.....we are at a stand still - can someone give us some suggestions about how to repro a key for the ignition assembly? Please contact ASAP if you got any suggestions.....
