Looks like a paddy wagon behind it. The touring tops look like they are in great shape!</div></div> That first car does not look like a Dodge to me. What year Dodge were you thinking?
  2. Here are a couple of Dodge Brothers engines up for grabs near me in southern Oregon. Cannot say what years, but there are a ton of good parts on/in them. For the price of scrap, they could be yours! I would really hate to see them go to the scrap metal place, but the owner wants them out of there. I just have no way to pick them up or a place to store them, otherwise I would have to have them myself. They are located about 40-45 miles north of the California border off of Interstate 5 in Medford. Call me at (541)535-1890 or email me at keiser31@charter.net. I am usually home to answer the phon
  3. I posted this under another topic, but I wanted to be sure someone saw this. Can anyone use these 2-DB engines? The owner told me that they are going cheap (the price of scrap). There seems to be a lot of great parts still on them. They are in southern Oregon about 40-45 miles north of the California border off of Interstate 5 in Medford. I would really hate to see them get taken to the scrap metal place. They may even be re-buildable. Call me at (541)535-1890 or email me at keiser31@charter.net. Can't tell you the years, but here are some photos. I am usually here to answer the phone or email
  4. Another thing to do is to find out for certain which bolts/washers were on the parts prior to painting. Were the bolts installed AFTER the paint at the factory or BEFORE? A lot of assemblies were put together a couple of different ways.
  5. I am not so sure if the under hood area was sanded and polished.
  6. I would go with plastic bead blasting on the engine. That way, if you don't get it all out, it should not damage anything.
  7. You might just try this...take the distributor cap off and turn the engine over. See if the rotor turns. If not, look at the gear at the base of the distributor shaft. That same thing happened to me once in my 1970 Plymouth GTX 440. It just died and if it had not been for another local MOPAR guy, it would have taken me forever to find the problem. Just my own thoughts about my own experience.
  8. Can anyone use these engines? The owner told me that they are going cheap (the price of scrap). There seems to be a lot of usable parts on them such as carb, generator, starter, etc. They are in southern Oregon about 40-45 miles north of the California border off of Interstate 5 in Medford. I really would hate to see them scrapped out with the goodies still on them. Call me at (541)535-1890 or email me at keiser31@charter.net I am usually at home to answer calls or emails. John
  9. <div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Originally Posted By: Mark Huston</div><div class="ubbcode-body">This picture is proof that no matter how bad a vehicle looks and performs there will always be someone willing to make it worse. I want to know what is the top speed before the wheels fall apart, and how do you balance them things? </div></div> How do you turn on a paved street??? Very carefully.
  10. It was very sad for our family when Eddie Sachs was killed in that horrific crash. He was a friend of my father's and had dinner at our home once. My dad had a tough time watching the races after that. Later when Dale was killed at Daytona, my dad gave up watching racing altogether. He was my dad's favorite.
  11. There is a great book out called "The American Gas Station" by Michael Karl Witzel. It has many great shots like those.
  12. Yes....with the rear fender trim, scalloped front fender bead, I would say Imperial without a doubt.
  13. Looks a little like an Invicta.
  14. It's probably real. A few (VERY FEW) in 1931 and 1932 were adorned with the DuVall windshield and custom top & fenders. Some simply had the original fenders with the custom top and windshield.
  15. <div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Originally Posted By: Dana J</div><div class="ubbcode-body">I purchased a large torque nut that screwed on to the hub. Then I got a large wheel puller and attached to nut and tightened pushing on the axle. I even used a 4 ft. cheater and tightened as much as I could, then fired up the torch and heated her up. The end result was I bent the nut over. This thing is really on there. I have already done the other three wheels with no problem and all the brakes are done except this one. This explains why the brake line wa
  16. Good thing they didn't all go turbine. That car just made a whoosh sound. My wife thinks the Indy cars all sound like mosquitoes and hates it. She REALLY loves the sounds of NASCARS.
  17. Here you go....just what you wanted! Tell me if you find any 1931 Dodge parts while you are "back in time".
  18. ANYTHING under government control is scary.
  19. With the proper hub puller it will come off. Sometimes it comes off with a "bang", so do not stand in front of it when you pull it off. I have seen them fly across the garage. I have also seen them go "pop" and just fall off. Some guys have tried it a different way where they loosen the axle nut slightly and go for a drive around the block and it loosens. That method scares me a little for fear of damaging the axle or some other parts.
  20. I always use a wooden spacer to put around the sides of the battery to tighten the fit.
