    Wanted Metz 22 metal seat back

    I have a friend in NY that will make it for you, he has the bead roller and rolls , a expert man. Call Ray Hedger at 315 684 9007
  2. My intentions were not to upset anyone. The point I as trying to make is this guy has a once in a lifetime hoard of very interesting prewar cars and we are all lucky to see them in where they have set 6 0r 7 decades. We wants to sell them, is putting a asking price on them and is inviting offers. Im sure some of these cars can be bought for much less than the posted price. What I don't see is to publically beat him with a ugly stick for his offerings. I look at cars on line everyday and a lot of them I think to my self "Good luck" or "He is nuts" but I don't jump on the machine and beat him publically.. I just forget.. Im sure Im wrong and your ideas are right. Just my opinion.... Have a great day . Mike
  3. Put them on a street rod site and get them sold. I'm sure this upset someone , but who really cares? If you read between the lines, the seller is saying ...."Hey come take a look and make me a offer" I've sold a lot of cars that need complete restoration and I don't believe I've ever sold one to one of the armchair quarterbacks that sit on there ass all day at a keyboard chopping at almost every post like a butcher with a clever! I really don't get it what enjoyment these responders get out of knocking almost every post they read. I sold a scarce Franklin Town sedan that I dragged out of a barn in Ohio that all the self proclaimed experts said was beyond restoration , to far gone to fix and all that BS. I put the car on EBAY at no reserve and guess what?, It had 10 bidders and went overseas to a guy that as thrilled to get it! I think the price was around $6500. I was happy and he was happy and all the armchair quarterbacks sat there rubbing their heads wondering what they didn't see....
  4. Yes I saw that as well. Ive already bought a box - still looking for original fenders. Thanks Mike

The pinion bearing needs to be replaced (at least) and most likely Ill replace the carrier bearings as well. Im reaching out to the Chrysler group to see if these bearings are off the shelf sizes or am I going to have to find bearings specific to the car. Any comments welcomed.

Next, I would go to Olcar Bearing Company and ask them if they have what you need.

  9. I brought home some model A parts this week and mixed in was 2 Zenith carburetors that I have identified as Model B. One is assembled and looks good and the second has been separated from the top and bottom . The venturi is good. Ill post pictures if Antoine wants them. They could be rebuilt and run on a Model A as well. $100.00 each or $175.00 for the pair. mike 585 738 1541

    Company to reline my Chandler brake bands

    Eric, You can but bits that have a pilot drill head on the end and a flat spade like cutter to undercut the material . Or you can send out to Ft Wayne brake and clutch (Ind) . They do great work. Measure up the length and width of the material needed and they will quote a price.
