  1. I do not have much info on Senior parts, I have been looking for anything I might have on heads for you. Since my Senior is one of the last 2249's made, I have the last permutation so mine won't help you much. I will look at the head number just for information.
  2. Ron My 2249 also had a single bottom outlet and a sediment bowl when I got it. It works fine so I am keeping it that way and assuming that it is correct.
  3. I have been looking for Harry Redding's article on the BB-1. I will let you know when I find it. It was a good write-up.
  4. I have had a lot of the pot metal disease with my Senior. After having three Stromberg TX-3 Carbs fall apart I saw the article on Carter BB-1 carbs by Harry Redding in the Dodge Club magazine a few years ago. I found one with the right number for the Senior ( I found a chart on line listing applications). I had to make an adaptor since the bolt holes where 90 degrees off and used some exhaust adapters to fit the air cleaner. The car fired right up and after a little bit of tweaking on the carb it has been running great ever since. We do mostly touring but if I wanted to be in a judging event, I can very easily replace the carb with the one Stromberg carb I have that will still work somewhat.
  5. Here is the photo from my 1925 Business Coupe.
  6. The one on my 1925 Business Coupe is on the header above the windshield 4 inches to the right of the mirror bracket. I can get a photo if you need it.
  7. The floor boards in my 1925 Coupe were Pine and are the original boards. They do not look like Southern Yellow Pine but other than that I can't tell what type of pine they are.
  8. Mine was definitely external on the lid. I could not get a photo without taking up the carpet and the floor.
  9. I think mine is the same as you decribed as having been on your car. I will check it out for you and get a photo if I can.
  10. I have done exactly like you say on my 1925 coupe. You have the procedure correct. You only have to remove the front bolts of the rear springs and then pivot the rear end back on the rear spring shackles. It's easier with a couple people to help. Then support the engine and transmission and remove the bolts through the crossmember. Putting it back together definitely requires some help with a second pair of hands, but still went pretty smoothly. Good luck. It was a lot easier on the 25 than when I did my 1928 Senior. If I need to do that again I think I will just sell the car.
  11. The fuel line on my 2249 also runs the same way as Ron Lawson described.
  12. Ron The floor of my Senior is all pine boards, no plywood, and they are original. Your toe board of plywood must have been an Australian change in design.
  13. After going through three TX2 carbs for my Senior and having all three fall apart from pot metal disease, I finally went with a Carter BB-1. I had to make an adaptor to rotate it 90 degrees but that was not real hard to do. The BB-1 works great.
  14. I had the same problem with my Senior on tours, especially when we had other people riding with us. I could not find a trunk rack that would fit so I build a box that mounts inside the spare tire and bolts onto the spare tire mounting bolts so it is easy to put on and take off. It is big enough to hold some tools, oil, water, rags, etc. I tried to make it look period even though there probably was nothing like it ever made for the car. Most people just think it was an accessory available at the time. It at least gets stuff out of the way of the people in the back seat and I can easily remove it when I do not need it..
  15. Since I have a Packard as well as the Dodges I really like those Packard models. They look great! Wish I had one.
