  7. There is an incomplete list of Hupmobile Dealers and their address. I am away from home and will be traveling for the next two weeks. I will look to see if any dealers were located in the UK and post here. I would appreciate seeing any dealerships you find. Jack
  8. Put it on ebay with a reserve for the minimum you want and hope for the best. If you are too low, the price will rise to the actual value. Your risk is a buyer will get it to put a Chevy V8 in it. Do an ebay search for 1932 Chevrolet and select all "Completed Listings". As of 9/30/2013 there are 3 unsold units in various states of assembly. The assembled car did not get above 10,000. I have seen very nice cars go for 16,000 to 20,000. Estimate the assembly hours, engine rebuild cost, paint, interior and deduct from finished value. The unassembled car, coupe, bid was less than $1,900. An assemb
  9. Can anyone list the hub size for this 1930 Chrysler? Is the correct size 2 1/2 or 2 9/16?
  10. I am not a Cad person. Does it have vacuum windshield wipers? My car had a vacuum leak which turned out to be a 5 inch rubber hose in the wiper line. It was under the dash and in 70 years the ends were hard and cracked. Had me confused as all the lines and connections under the hood were fine. Does it have any other vacuum driven accessories? Found mine by sealing off the vacume line to the wipers and the vacume was OK.
  11. Just a comment as I live 200 miles south of you and would not make the trip. Try to go to car shows this fall in hopes of finding someone willing to join you. I have 2 to 4 requests yearly and I checked with my INS Co on coverage. If I bill for the car's services, they want to charge a commercial business rate. As an antique the insurance is $110 and the commercial rate is $1,200. The 2 hours you need the car plus an estimated 30 to 60 minutes for travel to and from the church. It would take 30 minutes for cleaning the car before and after plus the cost of gas. My 1931 car gets 10 to 12 MP
  12. The weather can be in the 30's in the mornings or it can be in the high 80's in the afternoon. It may be sunny so bring sun screen. A rain shower is passable but most vendors will shut down in a rain. I started in 2001 & have seen everything but snow and that has happened previously. I have found that an extra pair of socks give some relief in the afternoon. There are kids providing a hauling service when you can find them. Many people use a wagon, with an extended handle for comfort. I use a 2 wheel cart with a crate and a board to sit on when tired. Also makes a great way to haul m
  13. I can't tell which one is best. I purchased a cover called "CARJacket" In the winter I drive on the flap and put the cover (bag) over it and zip it up at floor level. It is sealed very well and comes with crystals to dry out the air inside the car bag. I have only used it in my garage. I also have a home made dust cover to put between the cover and the bag. When I use just the dust cover in the garage, it is to avoid dusting the car before driving it. In an unheated garage, when the tempature riases, a cement floor will sweat and cause I have a wooded area behind my garage and I have a prob
  14. What model number is your car? I purchased a dist cap for my 31 6 cyl Hupmobile from my local NAPA store. They apologized that I would have to wait 2 days till they got in in from the warehouse. I was surprised they knew which one I needed and even had one anywhere in stock. Another source is get a Hemmig's Mag and look for a vendor advertizing dist caps.
  15. According to the NATIONAL SERVICE MANUAL. the 1928 Chandler's were all Positive Ground.
  16. Go to this link for more information: Welcome to OhioSwapMeet.com There will be 2 or 3 vendors in the mercantile building. One of them is from Wilmington, they are about 5 spots from the men's restroom. If you plan to go on Saturday, try to get there before 9:00. By 10:00 there is a line to get in. Many vendors leave Saturday or at least by 2:00. The exit on I-75 is number 59. The meet is on the north side but south is a flee market called Granpa's Garage specializing automotive, plane, and train things. I plan to attend on Friday, maybe also on Saturday. Have Fun
  17. Go to the Springfield, OH swap meet Labor Day weekend and there will be 4 or 5 vendors. Fri, Sat Sun but closed on Monday. have fun
  18. Unlike a model A, you will have to search for some parts. ' If you haven't gone to Hershey in October, this will be the time of your life. If you can get lodging in easy driving distance, I suggest you take Wed, Thur, & Fri to make Chrysler contacts. Charlotte in April is smaller by also good for parts. I have a friend who has restored several cars of the 60's & 70's, then he spent 3 plus years doing a 1923 Paige touring car. With the exception of the fame, everything came home in a pickup. There were a few critical parts missing causing delays in completing. Most he found, and a cou

  20. In June I was in SW IND on a Hupmobile car tour. Tuesday evening we had high winds and a tornado watch. It actually passed 30 miles south of us. Wednesday, we traveled by school bus due to an abundance of gravel roads. In the afternoon we had a 2 inch down burst in less than 2 hours. We actually had 3 3/4 inches in 48 hours. Thursday morning the 31 would not start and everything under the hood was soaked. After everything was wiped down and dried, it had no spark at the plugs. Problem was identified that the insolation on the condenser wire was warn off due to rubbing against the dist.
  21. In 1941, all oil was non detergent. If your engine has not been rebuilt, stick with non-detergent. Why, Detergent oil will clean the engine and all the crud will come loose. Things like increased oil usage will occur. Plus the crud can get stuck in oil lines causing other problems. My first car was a 1953 Chevy and I promptly used 30 weight detergent and the above happened. If the engine has been rebuilt in the last 10,000 miles or so, it should be ok to use detergent oil. If you don't know about the rebuild, stick with non-detergent oil. The detergent will allow the engine to go many
  22. Go to this link of a couple a years ago. http://forums.aaca.org/f190/1929-hupmobile-project-246532.html He started with a simple project of a 1929 Hupmobile. It evolved into a full fledged effort with beautiful results. He documented almost all of his efforts as he progressed. Go to the forum and enjoy the progression of his project.
  23. Always walk before you run. Start with a car that runs, if it doesn't run there are many many reasons and big bucks. Finding missing parts for most old cars can take a very long time and cost big bucks. Just finding missing bumpers and getting them chromed will create a major sticker shock. The more exotic the vehicle, the higher the car & parts will cost. An excellent option is start with a Ford Model T or a Model A. There are many cars available that have been started & not finished. Parts are easily found as there are many parts shops specializing in T's & A's not to mention cat
  24. Most wheel pullers have 16 threads to the inch. They are measured as '2 2/3 inches, 2 7/16, 2 9/16, 2 5/8, 2 3/4, etc. I have seen them as large as 3 3/8 inches. Find some one with a set of calipers' and get the exact measurements. Visually, the 2 7/16 look the same as 2 1/2 but they are not interchangeable. Try posting the sizes in the General Discussion Forum to contact a larger number of members.
  25. These may not be your problem but they were mine. -------------------------------------------------------- I had the problem of the engine dying when I stopped quickly and by increasing the idle, I had a temporary fix. This progressed and got worse to the point of just slowing down on an interstate ramp and it would die. Also the engine lost power accelerating up a hill. The problem was the exhaust valves were not closing completely. The problem was identified by doing a compression check. Three of the 6 cylinders were very low. Had a cylinder checkdone on all 6 to find the problem was
