  1. this fuel gauge doesn't belong to this '32 although it fits the sequence
  2. Unintentionally you made a mistake, your human. I personally recognize the pain you must be feeling, that pain needs to find a place and it will. After realizing what pleasure we all have found contributing and reading/learning in this thread, we can always start again, keep your head up please.
  3. le and ri two large bolts, from the outside of the frame going to two inside threaded cones in the crankcase. Take notice before loosening the bolts, not to take out the two bolts at the rear of the crankcase. these two bolts are holding the cones in place and prevent them from turning with loosening the two said bolts. The engine and box will come down, so you have to support these in a way, before taking the two bolts out.
  4. Carl is giving the idea the right response , that is what I'm after . I have no plans of ever making use of this insurance value to replace, but one never knows what can happen. The value in Europe and the US is about equal for these cars. The agreed value is not used with insurance companies , so that will be difficult to get . I will however make an attempt and find out if and how I can make this happen. Will let you know in the end when I have come to a solution. The pictures of the '32 are in the restoration forum under A few pictures from the '30 will follow thanks Joha
  5. Thanks to all that responded in a way. I've learned now that wanting to know something , put this in a question and to try to get an answer that fits the question, as in this situation " any one has an idea about the value of said cars" is much tougher, then I had anticipated. In fact I didn't get any. The ideas of insurance companies and leads are certainly appreciated and I will follow the Chubb and Lloyds suggestion. I do not have sentimental ideas or thoughts of value, tried to make clear the status and the condition the cars are in . Just wanted to compare my valuati
  6. Hi , perhaps you can be of help getting my insurance value wher I think it should be. Market value is of no interest because I don't want to sell and they will stay with my children and grandchildren, when I'm gone.No doubt about this. Over here in the Netherlands we have an insurance system that works with appraisers to set a value on an object. Till now never a serious problem. Needed a new appraisal for both and the trouble started, terms like market prewar is down and low, getting lower, buyers wanting these cars are less and less etc etc. Trying to make them clear, that this has
  7. John , as you know, the carb on the V-8 looks simple, but is a precision instrument, as is the distributor , both set well they will hardly give any trouble. 😉
  8. Good morning Jon, thank you spot on , both springs missing, there is a spare carb , with the owner, let's find out of they are present within that one, if not can you supply them or have a source? regards Johan
  9. Hi A 1957 Cadillac with a 4 barrel Rochester is flooding the engine under braking due to fuel coming out of the two vent pipes on top of the carb,. My friend is a mechanic and into old cars rather well. Knows his carburetors and has tried several option to get grip on the situation, without result . Most knowledge is with German made carbs as you will understand. But then that should not be that big a difference.He concluded that the fuel, under braking,is coming out of the two vents on top of the carb, flooding the engine.It kind of builds up and find it's way out into the
  10. It actually should work fine , setting these after the manual, what I have found (the hard way) it is extremely important the points have the right dimension, that is length of contact arm, take up point of the rubbing block on the arm, in relation with the cam lobe . If these do not have the original factory intended dimension , it can and will not function, the overlapping is not as it should be with the wrong dimension points. This might help knowing Johan
  11. Howard, this is the information I had wished not to read, but knew I possible would , how very sad . Thank you for taking the time and let me know. Johan
