Keep trying and I will look for Ken's number here.
  2. Steedle...Email me at keiser31@charter.net and I will help you out. I know a lot about the DeSotos.
  3. Photo number 2 looks to be rear bumper brackets. The next 2 are shock absorbers.
  4. Thanks. I did find that out and they are on ebay as I type.

  6. So, it looks like both of your Dodges have sidemounts. I guess I should have known that from your terms "Sport" and "DeLuxe".
  7. I would imagine that is like most changes...that they went to a much cheaper assembly/materials cost by changing. I am sure that it took a lot more time to manufacture and assemble the first version. Then the Great Depression came along and changed things.

Call me a jerk if you like, but I think his driving style sucked! </div></div> I totally agree. My dad loved him.....I did not.
  9. Bob soon realized he should NOT have gone with his buddy's suggestion about putting helium in the front tire to get more traction....

And yes....it DOES look a lot like that guy.
  11. Sounds to me like a broken brake return spring, then. If it happens under all of those conditions, it will probably be inside the drum. I have had that happen to me. There could also be a brake shoe retainer clip that has come apart or fallen off into the drum. Does it happen to make the noise when you back up, too? If so, it is a good indication of the malady I have mentioned. I would definitely remove the drum and inspect the brakes.

Wayne</div></div> Yes, Wayne....it is up to the OWNERS of the pets and the PARENTS of the children to train them correctly and until they do that...leave them
  13. What a great group to bring out such treasures in the rain. Mine will be on the road again soon and then it will be rain or shine for me, too! On one tour my wife and I went on in our '31, there was rain, sun, sleet and snow.
  14. EGGE Machine in Santa Fe Springs, California. They have a website and most vintage engine rebuild parts.
  15. Sounds like a bad thrust washer or bushing or too low on fluid to me.
  16. <div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Originally Posted By: HarryJ</div><div class="ubbcode-body">Dean be careful with your hand crank,,,yes, you can start your car with it ; the one you made is lovely; however it may hang up in the crankshaft sprocket and will put the hurt to you. It is a great aid in timing the car and performing tasks requiring precise crankshaft orientation; but a word to the wise avoid starting the car with it. </div></div> If you learn the correct way to crank, it is safe. Just make a fist and push with the palm/knuck
  17. Nice photos....I like the beige 1930 Dodge convertible across the aisle from the blue Ford truck.
  18. Try Ken Burbach in Apple River, Illinois.....he LOVES those GS400s. This guy has his phone number....Galen at (608)326-6346.
  19. I think ply33 is correct...now that I look closer, it looks like 1933 Plymouth standard cap.
  20. Nice car on your profile.....looks a lot like mine.
  21. Google "Irv Bishco books". He has lots of stuff for Chrysler products or go to the Chrysler Museum in Auburn Hills, Michigan. For $45.00 you can get a "build sheet" that tells exactly how your car came when ordered.
