  1. Poppy 510, You are correct in that the Standard series is model 140 and the prefix letter would be "J". The Victory was series 130 and their prefix letter was "M'. There are series 140 Instruction books. Perhaps that series 130 book was all the previous owner could find?
  2. Poppy 510, My Std. chassis No. J-28xxx with engine. No. J-37xxx.and was built Apr-May '28. So with your engine No. of J89xxx your car would nearly the last one built and should have a chassis No. around that J-75xxx area in Dec.
  3. It clearly says right here in the instruction manual.... OH Never mind this is the left phone not the right one.
  4. With engine turning clockwise Goes like ^*)) backwards but NO forward!
  5. Guys, I think it is more important to ask yourself what is your reason for shopping for vintage signage? Are you looking for something nice looking to decorate your man cave, OR are you looking for some future investment to make money without doing something to earn it? I have been looking at the rediculous exorbitant prices on fleabay for bent scratched seriously overpriced pieces of crap that I personally would not make space for on any of my walls, even in the crapper! I definitely would rather buy a beautiful repop for decorating my shop. Anyway that is my take on the 'real' or 'repro' ide
  6. Thank you kind Sir! Your information has been passed on.

  8. Follow Up. That young man seated in the first photo, with a bit of coaching, drove the car off the show field and over to the parking lot to be loaded in my van. To say he was elated would be an understatement. Later I heard him talking to his uncle and thought he should have one and could he buy him one! Ha! We need to encourage the young to appreciate our passions.
  9. Not DB specific but Small Talk related. I figure these munchkins couldn't brake things I could not fix on my '27 RED BUG and they seemed to enjoy! The 'Lil Rascals is just for fun!
  10. TexRiv_63, As usual questions here seem to create all sorts of questionable answers and frequently go off topic. I admit I am not specifically familiar with the '34 Chev BUT I do restore antique car radios and while rebuilding a '35 Delco from Chev I was curious why there were dual contacts on the radio power switch. One set was obvious Power through Normally Open contacts to the radio supply. The other set of Normally Open contacts was fastened to ground and out of the radio? Long story short the Chev had a interesting design in that the 'field' terminal on the generator (that terminal
  11. Gunsmoke, The series 140 is the '28 Standard 6. The '28 Victory is series 130. I 'm certain someone on this site will respond. Good Luck.
  12. Trini and guys you do NOT need to pull the steering wheel to access the horn wire. That horn wire is fastened to the button in canter of the bakelite levers which are secured to concentric shafts and secured at the bottom of the steering gear with those linkages to the timing and throttle override. Take MANY pix BEFORE disassembling those. You will need to pull those levers out a bit and find a snap ring that holds the bakelite horn disk to a notched flange on the inner (smaller diameter) tube. The horn wire extends through a fitting in the top flange. It is soldered up at the top and extends
  13. Guys and Broker-Len, If you note the oil pump is inside the engine near where that projection sticking out where the oil pressure relief spring is located and supplies oil to that galley along the side just under the water side plate. That oil exits that galley and 'Ts' where the oil pressure gauge line and the line through the filter and directly back into the block just under where the filter is mounted. The filter has nothing to do with cleaning oil TO the rods, etc. It is a bypass system and filters out 'Stuff' in a direct loop from that galley back to the pan. Just F.Y.I.
  14. Dale, Additionally I am curious why there would be two transmissions back top back. Obviously this was intended as a tractor designed for torque not speed. I suspect in granny low on both trannies you could walk along beside it at a slow pace without much effort!
  15. Dale, As was mentioned the engine numbers were roughly 50,000 higher than the car chassis number which would make the chassis number around A-120,000 ish. Unfortunately that chassis number will be partially obscured by the ONLY remaining fender. That number will be stamped on the side of the frame up under that fender near or above the rear spring shackle and will be prefixed by the 'A-" Judging by the steep angle of the toe board I would suggest this chassis was a roadster in a previous life. Are there any numbers stamped on the engine side of the firewall? Normally these body numbers w
  16. There is NO serial (or part ) number on the chain. That is simply the starter/generator drive chain. You mention '17 as the year of your car. Check the car serial number . That chain was 84 link side guide 3/8" pitch chain up to car serial number 234902 (Mar 4 '18) when they switched to 82 links. Check with Tom Myers Early Dodge Parts 734-856-1207 OR check with George Farrel at ROMAR at 315-924-2490. Be sure to mention your car serial number. Good Luck.
  17. It appears to be an aftermarket under dash accessory . With three pins for connection it is obviously a S.P.D.T switch and would possibly be for operating a also aftermarket electric motor controlled radio antenna.
  18. Dave, Welcome to this forum. Your chassis serial number will be found on top of he frame cross member just ahead of the seat (under the floor boards) on the pass. side. It may also be found on a data plate fastened to the upper toe board. That is the one the starter switch and steering column are fastened to. Your engine number just above the carb on a boss should be appx. 50,000 higher. The body number probably stamped in the firewall prefixed with R- will be totally irrelevant as there is no correlation in production sequences to body numbers. Good Luck.
  19. Just Dave, Is this what you are looking for? I had one some years ago but just went out to garage and cannot find it. It has been loaned to many of the local car members over the years and somehow It has not returned. I found it at a local swap meet not long after seeing this pic in the '34 Truck repair manual. I saw that weird thing and asked the seller what the heck is that thing? He said 'don't know. I asked how much? I believe he said $15.00 and I said sold. This is one of those tools one acquires over time and use once or twice then loose it . Good Luck finding one.
  20. Guys, I see the starting crank sticking in front so wouldn't be too difficult to see if the engine is froze up. By the way, actually the 1919 sedan was the first transition from center door to four doors. Jay states several things I would look at before buying, such as is there a spare wheel and carrier on rear? Also condition of wood seats, seat springs, upholstery, inner / outer door knobs pillar lock, etc. Further the chassis number on '22 will be on the frame cross member just in front of the seat on Pass side and on (if there is one) the metal tag on the upper toe board.
  21. Timcarguy, That is definitely a '22 Type A sedan as far as I can see ,depending on upholstery. Type A had striped grey broadcloth Type B (business) had leather and the front seat was able to fold forward to get packages into the rear. I do notice it has the original Leece Neville 'FatMan' steering wheel. Where is the car located? I purchased one very much similar condition from a fellow at a tax lien auction. One thing to consider is these disk wheels are one year only and first year for disk replacing previous wire wheels. The '23 disk wheels are different where the disk fastens to the rim. A
  22. Mike, et all. Sorry to be so tardy with this response. The pic of your door shows a aftermarket switch . These were made available from several sources over time. The original switch was made by Garford and on the back are words to that effect I submit a rather crude drawing since I couldn't find one in my stash clear enough to be photographed. The original horn WIRES P/N L4315 were in fact a twisted pair of cloth covered rubber insolated wires not unlike early vintage lamp cords. These wires exited in back of the door upholstery panel, as mentioned by 'Near Chocolatown' just below the hinge a
  23. Way back in the early 70s I built this motorhome on a '32 Dodge 1 1/2 T langendorf bread truck . It was a blast when the kids were young. When we drove into a camp ground it drew people like flies on a pile. The table in the rear folded down for wifie and I bed and the kids slept on bunk beds behind the driver seat. It had a Ice Box just inside the side door and a camp stove next to it. We enjoyed it to the mid to late 80s when I sold it to a fellow from Montana who was going to live in it while building his home. Sorry I do not recall his name drat! It would be interesting to s
  24. I did not notice the original query was that old. Bob, Isn't the speedo drive behind hat cardboard tag?
  25. Guys, With the lever for compound clutch it is after '19 and since it does not have 'lock in neutral' it should be from '19 to '23. The internal gears should be interchangeable from around '16 - '17 to at least '23. With some slight variations of placement of and direction of the speedometer drive gear.
