  1. As nearchoclatetown said in another thread (DB26 Oil pan), the four-cylinder oil indicator should have a cap on the top of the rod. I used a flat-head hollow rivet as a replacement cap on my ´24 DB . . .

    Is it a sacrilege

    We´re all sinners, but we try to be good! This is original for my ´24: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Dodge-Brothers-Horn-/361966096851?hash=item5446dc51d3:g:x6UAAOSw42dZBAZA&vxp=mtr It´s a little over-priced, I think. . . . Make an offer, if you can use it. Good luck!
  3. Just a word of encouragement. I have a 1924 coupe, which has a longer wheel base and other changes, so I can´t help much with your project. Just want to share a word of encouragement in your restoration project. These are wonderful old cars, and their owners are good folk. Merece la pena restorar y compartir con los demás su historia y aventuras con su viejo Dodge Brothers. ¡Animo! ¡Que viva Nueva Zelanda! Gracias por la foto.

    Cowl lights--wiring

    Thanks, everyone for your prompt, expert advice.
  5. Is there a Dodge Brother/Sister out there who can tell me how to correctly wire COWL LIGHTS for a 1924 DB business coupe? Do the cowl lights have a separate switch, or do they function with the regular headlight switch? Thank you!

    1926 DB Coupe

    Nice DB coupe, and at a reasonable price. I have a ´24 coupe. Patience will pay off for the parts you need. Join the the DBC club. Great folks who always try to help out.

    1931 Coupe Find

    pbajeff-- I hope your "stewing" goes well. I, too, have had 283 and 307 Chevys, but I´m partial to the old DBs. There are lots more Chevys around than 31 Dodge Brothers. Congrats on finding the Dodge; I hope you will keep it original. Its value is not just in dollars and cents. I´m a U.S. citizen living in Colombia, South America, while my DB sits in the States for now.

    Fuel filter with vacumn tank

    I mounted an inline filter horizontally, just ahead of the rear axle. Doesn´t seem to affect the operation of the vacuum tank. Works fine. Good luck.

    What have I just purchased?

    My ´24 coupe (produced in May of 1924) has a louvered hood and rectangular pedals; I have seen round pedals only on pre-1924 DBs. The dash also appears to be that of an earlier model. The original motor in my car does have priming cups. Good luck with your purchase.

    How to sell a 1916 Dodge Brothers Touring???

    Thought Police? I haven't seen much thought in your posts, only anger, sour grapes, and judgmental projection of your own demons. They don't belong here. Therapy can help, really! Please get lost, for the good of everyone.

    How to sell a 1916 Dodge Brothers Touring???

    Greasyguy/Grease Monkey/Whatever . . . Your insulting rant does not deserve a response, but as a victim of your smear, I feel compelled to post my disagreement with your judgments and opinions. Since you’ve set the tone, I’ll reply with the same bluntness. In my opinion, the old car hobby and this forum are ill served by the gratuitous arrogance and insults of your post. Like you, I have some suggestions: 1) Avoid this forum, if you are bothered by DB cars that aren’t “fun” or by DB people you consider to be a “strange bunch,” “not too smart,” “extremely insecure,” who “can’t spell,” and who you suggest are “just plain weird.” 2) Look closely in the mirror before you again condemn an entire group of people you do not know. 3) Consider finding yourself another hobby, about which you are better informed and less conflicted. 4) Consider therapy for yourself. Please!

    Oil Leakage - Crankcase Breather

    And not only that . . . your garage/workshop is entirely too clean! Surely, some club or forum members can help with that. My '24 threw oil, too, because I overfilled the crankcase. Five liters is equivalent to 5.3 quarts U.S. or 4.4 quarts U.K. That should be about right. Nice looking DB. --Roberto

    Desicration of a Dodge roadster...

    Where will the new "roadster" be in 5, 10 or 85 years? Some people have more money than brains. For others, ignorance is bliss. In any case, the real DB bites the dust . . .

    1931 sedan

    I have every confidence that you will do a better job than the person who "desecrated" the DB roadster (keiser 31's post(#612733). Go for it!
