  1. I'm looking for a foaming solution and just came across this discussion. I contacted Evans, they use propylene glycol without water for racing and high performance engines. They said their antifreeze would not stop the foaming issues. They said they had researched the cause of the foaming and that they believed it was the packing on the water pump of non pressurized systems that was allowing air in. The grease cup was not mentioned.
  2. Thanks. There was a similar one being reproduced for Buicks a few years ago that had both supply and return on the top of the tank, so it couldn't substitute for the SA 2. You'd think there was enough demand to make it practical for someone to reproduce them.
  3. It seems like there are a lot of us looking for a Purolator SA 2 oil filter. They were used in many 20'-30's cars and I wonder if they are being reproduced by anyone. This is a picture of one. Oil connections are on the top and bottom of the can.

  5. What a great meet! I never cease to marvel at the amount of organization and work it takes to put on one of these events. Among many things that were well-done I was pleased and impressed when on this wickedly hot day volunteers were going around giving out bottles of ice-cold water in the afternoon. This is also a great venue for the meet. Congratulations Chesapeake region I really enjoyed it.
  6. My car uses 700x18 "6 ply" tires. These are basically truck tires and correct for the car and unfortunately balancing is always an issue. I'd like to know what you think of the balance beads, how they are installed when using a tube and if you can recommend a brand or say where you got them. Thanks, Steve
  7. Thanks, it's very helpful and I'll share it with several people who are interested.
  8. Can anyone suggest a source for the correct color engine enamel for the 1929 Chrysler Imperial L80? In a much earlier post a color was suggested for the 1930 Imperial that looks close. Does anyone know if the 1929 and 1930 engines were the same color? Thanks
  9. Pete, if you are still looking for a generator for your model 65 Jay Astheimer has been a good source of parts and information. His number is 610 462 3631.
  10. Hi Tom, I haven't been on for a while so I apologize for the late response. If you are still looking for the differential cover and haven't talked to Jay Astheimer, I suggest you give him a call. He specializes in in early Chryslers and has helped me with many parts for my 1929 model 75 roadster. His number is 610 863 6955. Steve
  11. Look at the accessories mounted on the board behind the Ford that I assume are for sale by the dealer. I couldn’t tell what some of the things are but I see a bumper, acetylene tanks, two speedometers (both Stewart?), what I believe may be a roll-back brake, rear foot rest, tire pump, acetylene light perhaps for mounting on the running board, and something I think may be an oiler.
  12. I agree!! As Seldenguy points out, he is well dressed and these may just be expensive custom made shoes.
  13. I noticed the gentlemen by the car has on elevator shoes to make him look taller.
