  1. Thank you for your reaction I used my own crankshaft. Those rotate perfectly. The bearings are fine too. I used my own connecting rods with piston pins. I got six pistons on the block. They belonged to that block. Those were nice pistons. They fit nicely in the block, too. The piston rings weren't under a lot of tension,so we put new ones on them.The block was disassembled anyway. And that's why we changed the piston springs. We first fitted the piston rings into the block. There was a millimetre space between them to fit nicely. There are four piston rings around it. I think the tension on the outside is too strong from the piston rings. Without spark plugs,it's pretty hard to turn. I have no idea what the Delco Remy can pull. The cables from the battery to the starter and the chassis are 55 Squared (those are really thick cables that don't get warm during starting).
  2. Hello everyone, Thank you for your quick response. The engine's still on a buck. It's not in the car yet. When the spark plug's out, it's still turning pretty heavy. Can't the Delco Remy pull much? We're thinking about getting the crankcase out from underneath. And take out the pistons. And mount a used piston ring. If we try 12 volts for a second, would that be a problem? The cables to the Remy Delco are heavy. It has a new Otima battery and connections are good. When we put it on contact it turns beautifully. The anchor is not completely clean. Can I look at something else? Or do you have any suggestions? He's on the buck now. If we push the pedal by hand, nothing happens. The flywheel doesn't even move. We've had the block out once before. Then we had six new piston with piston rings made at Egge's. Starting was no problem then. I hope to hear from you. I think it's a wonderful forum. There's a lot of experience on the forum. With kind regards Catrinus Kielstra
  3. Hello, everybody, My name is Catrinus Kielstra from Holland. I have a Buick from 1923 roadster 6 cylinder black. I would like to place a picture but I can't, I'll try again. My English is bad, because I use a translation computer. My block was broken and I bought another block in California. Now I have new piston springs mounted. But now the Demy Relco can't pull the engine. Because of the new piston rings the engine runs heavy. When I pull the pin out and the brush comes on the anchor it turns quickly. We now want to build in the motor first and then tow it. Somebody might have a suggestion. Kind regards Catrinus Kielstra

    Hello all, I have the wheel off. It was very stuck. I use a big heavy hammer. Thanks
  5. Goodday everyone, Thank you for your goodness. I have already emailed Arnold van Son back. Only I do not know if I did that right. My Packard is a Cabriolet coupe 733 8 cyl. 1930. He has a Borg-Warner overdrive.Only that does not work according to me.How he works, I do not understand.I have the idea that the ignition is not good.There is also something on the forum to put the ignition on time. Should the ignition also be different in relation to petrol today. I will try to send a photo. Kind regards Catrinus Kielstra
  6. Hello all, I use a translation computer, excuse me for it. This is the first time for me on this forum. My name is Catrinus Kielstra from Holland Europe. I have a Packard convertible coupe from 1930. I want the wheel off for the control of the brakes. I have the bolts out, but the wheel is still fixed. I have to remove the hubcap. I've tried that, but that's very difficult. Is that normal. A key does not fit. I will try to take a picture. I will try to send more photos of the car. Only I am not a computer technician Kind regards Catrinus Kielstra
  7. Hallo Jones, The needle can also be careful soldering. And after soldering the needle in the application do, and then to face with the hammer a little tap on that, then it is closed again. I've often done with carburettors. Good luck Catrinus Kielstra
