    1934 Morgan Car

    Got this reply to an inquiry today, Didn't seem that unreasonable to me for a car this rare. Howard Dennis The engine turns. This is a project. Everything is expected to be rebuilt. The body tub and radiator were built by Vintage Sheet Metal of Malvern UK. Asking price is less than the cost of the tub.. I’m asking $12,000 obo. Fully restored prices are in the $45,000 to $55,000 range

    Roadworthyness of 32 Chrysler 6?

    I can't find it in my heart to give any credit when the car is touted to be a restoration by a top firm and the add states NO rust. Clearly this is NOT the work of a top firm and it has serious rust issues in the doors and sills and I'd bet elsewhere as well. Howard Dennis

    Roadworthyness of 32 Chrysler 6?

    I'm afraid I have to agree with Keiser31 on the quality of this restoration. I find it VERY hard to believe the White Post that I read about years ago did this car. Take the photo of the door bottom and enlarge it and you will see that not only was this door full of rust cancer but the repair was so poorly done that it STILL has holes in it that were NOT covered in the repair. The peeling paint under the cowl exposing shiny bare metal makes me wonder if this car was acid dipped and then improperly neutralized and now the entire paint job is loosing it's adhesion because this is more than normal aging causing this deterioration of this finish. Whenever I see shortcomings like this in a restoration I have to ask myself what other things were not correctly repaired or replaced. Howard Dennis

    Atwater Kent Igniton Tool

    Paul, I guess I've always been lucky in having all the ones I've assembled line up with very little effort and never needed this tool but in rethinking it from your explanation I see where it might make alignment easier. Howard Dennis

    Atwater Kent Igniton Tool

    Thanks, I have this in my files and thought if this tool was required why didn't I find it listed on this document from the manufacturer? Howard Dennis

    Atwater Kent Igniton Tool

    Just ran across this tool and since my Maxwell has this ignition system I'd like to understand how it works. The coil nut and screwdrivers make sense to me but the contact aligner has me baffled. Anyone have any ideas? Howard Dennis
  7. Can only add my personal experience to this problem. Having worked on many antique cars over the years I thought I was a pretty good judge on what was a serviceable part when I finished up my 6 year long restoration of my 1965 Shelby GT350. When I fired up the brand new motor for the first time I expected the overheating to disappear rapidly as the motor broke in but it didn't and I knew it couldn't have anything to do with the radiator as it was a low mileage original with all the correct numbers that I had found in a junkyard on a Mustang wrecked very early in it's life and besides I had taken it to a radiator shop who declared it completely usable after flow and leak testing. After checking hoses and water pump I was stumped until a friend told me to try his radiator shop of choice. Long story short he found that although my radiator appeared and tested as new the years of non use in the junkyard had allowed corrosion to separate the copper fins from the tubes so very little heat dissipation was actually occurring. Replaced the core and instant success and yet before this experience I never would have believed it possible. Live and learn. Howard Dennis

    Just Acquired this flyer, based on price shown and windshield bottom style I'd say this shows a 1918 Maxwell. Howard Dennis

    In case anyone else is looking for these, Tioga just sent this response to my email inquiry: We do carry some 10-32 threaded rivets, no 10-24 threads (we call them unslotted screws). We have them in round and truss head. They are as follows: 10-32 x 5/8" unslotted round and unslotted truss head - $.35/each We also have a 10-32 x 1" unslotted truss that has a #6 size head (2 sizes smaller than a #10 head). They are $.50/each. These are the only lengths we carry. Howard Dennis
