  1. Most of the head light switches I have removed have a small area on the switch behind the dash that you would push into to release the locking pin that holds the push pull rod.
  2. Dee, if you are age 28 the starter alone weight 35 lbs. If you are 82, the weight has increased to 75lbs when you attempt to lift it up while on your back to install.
  3. looking to find out information on what car or truck these door handles are for. Any help appreciated.
  4. Glad to see a youngun thinking about the past and future. We need more young people who can think beyound facebook and twitter etc. My grandson bought an older Mustang to drive to school and the flack was bad news from the others at school. What! A Junker! etc. He kept it thru school and now with a job to make payments, he purcased a 2010 Dodge Challenger with old school look and modern drive train. I shop ebay in the cd dept for older country music C.D 's { Slim Whitman Lefty and Marty]. My truck has old music to listen to now days.
  5. I miss the great old bands from the 40's. A great time in music. Being here in Texas I loved the real country music stars from the 50's and 60's. In those days, stars such as Marty Robbins, Slim Whitman, Hank Williams, and others came to Dallas and played at the local wrestling arena for low bucks admission. That was the concerts they put on in small beer joints etc. Now the so-called country singing stars are making big millions in Vegas etc and have a huge fan base. Not me, however, when they learn to sing and carry a tune, I might go see one of them.
  6. I have two old classic outside door handles that I would like to sell , They look to me that they have never been installed, just a little shelf wear. No rust or pitts. Just do not know what car they are made for. I am attaching a picture and if anyone knows what they are for, please post it. Thank you
  7. Fortyone, Looking back, I owned a 1950 Studebaker Convertible, 1958 Chevy Impala, 1955 Fprd TBird, 1951 Cad Coupe Deville, 1950 Rocket Olds, 1935 Ford, 1928 Plymouth coupe with rumble, 1948 olds, 1955 Chevy, 1956 Chevy and 1957 Chevy. Traded all of them in{gave away] with not much trade in value. O why did I not keep them!
  8. Talking to Peecher the other day about my age of 81 and the fact that the Lincoln starters have increased in weight in the last ten years. That is if you have to lay on your back and lift one out and another one in to bolt up.
  9. Thanks Keith for the reply and information. It does look like you did an excellent job with your repair. Pete
  10. Keith, What might be done to correct this 40 wheel's cracks at the hub. Thanks, Pete
  11. Yes they are Stude wheels. I have a 28 and they look a little diff than mine.

  14. I am 6 2 and have the same problem with my 40 cab. Very hard to get in and out and too close to the wheel. Anyone have a fix on this. Pete
  15. Nice 1928 Packard for sale in the Dallas area. This is a very good original car. It starts easy and drives good. No rust and is all there. If you want to show it, could use some new paint, the engine paint detailed and a little chrome redone. Not many of these historic quality cars left for sale. pbvsrv@hotmail.com.
  16. A 1928 Packard sedan is for sale on Ebay this week.
  17. I have posted a for sale ad in the AACA cars for sale section in general for sale items. It is for my 1928 526 Packard sedan. $16,500 pick up here in the Dallas area. Runs and drives very good.
  18. My 1928 Packard 526 is for sale. Too many cars. This grand old car is in running condition and is nice. It is not a show winner as it could use a few upgrades to show. If you want a parade car or a nice old classy car to drive around your neighborhood, it will work. It is original in every way, just needs a new paint job and a little chrome work to get it to your car show. The paint is good, just a lot of small scratches and I don't know if it is original paint. It looks like it is as it has a heavy well done old paint job on it. Six cylinders, good radiator and has the driving lights to hook up and the high dollar radiator cap also. It shows around 36,000 miles and do not know if it is correct. Looking at the car, I think it might be. $18,500 Pick up here. 972 345 8461 Dallas area of Texas PBVSRV@hotmail.com
  19. Paul, I bought my first Stude in 1950 when the new design bullet came out. This was a very high quality company with great products. I have a 50 and a 28 now and they compare with the Lincoln as far as quality goes. They never reached the high dollar crowd and was the poor mans machine. I have a 28 Packard and side by side, the Stude and the Packard look like they came out of the same factory as far as quality.
  20. On Ebay 1971 Dodge NOS brake wheel cylinder for sale.
  21. Interested in the Lincoln brochure. Any idea on what you want for it. Thanks, Pete
  22. ON Ebay Buick Brake Wheel Cylinders has NOS USA made 1961 thru 1963 all models.
  23. I can only answer on the Fords of 1941. I have both, a super deluxe and a standard. The Super has much more stainless than the standard. More than likely the upholstery was diff in the original model also. More paint colors available.
