    grease gun

    Try "Alemite" but I am not sure this is correct. I have seen a conversion piece at swap meets in the past to attach to the current gun and converts to the older style. . On Ebay, check out the following links under "grease gun" vintage model T ford Alemite lubricator grease gun 1919:eBay Motors (item 260475174142 end time Sep-17-09 09:27:18 PDT) or Chevrolet Tool kit Size Grease Gun 1925 1928 1931 1933:eBay Motors (item 190334122011 end time Sep-16-09 19:30:00 PDT)
  3. Congratulations! Again the information is timely and correct. The little girl died last month, at 81, and this photo was found in her things. Her sister is very happy to know about the car. Thank you.
  4. Would like to know the make, model, and year. It appears to have rims from a 1936 Chevrolet. The hood ornament looks like it could be a Plymouth. Does anyone recognize the trim along the side of the hood. The original photo is only 3" by 4" so detail is poor.
  5. The place to purchase a bell shaped wheel puller that screws on the wheel hub is Hershey in October. There is a dealer who carries a large variety of sizes just north of the stairs over the road at the west end of the chocolate field. The hubs come in a verity of sizes like 2 inchs, 2 1/8, 2 1/4, 2 3/8, 2 1/2, 2 5/16, 2 9/16, 3 1/4, etc. I suggest you take the hubcap to a machinist to measure for the correct size. Don't try to use a tape measure or ruler. If you know someone going to Hershey, contact them. They sell them from $25 to $50 based on the availability. If you get the size, I can pick one up and ship it to you from Hershey. Jack
  6. I use a red flashing LED bicycle light attached to the ends of the bumpers using the standard bicycle frame attachment. The bike shop verity have several blinking options. They really work great as dusk approaches. I also use white ones on the front. I have never been stopped by a cop and motorist are accustomed to seeing bicycles on surface streets. On 4 lane highways, they get into the left lane a good 200 feet behind me. I have not used the lights during the day but have not had a problem being seen.
  7. I used "Aesthetic Finishers" in Piqua, Ohio and am happy with results. Their wep page is "http://www.afipowder.com/" Aesthetic Finishers - Ceramic Header Coating and Powder Coating - Home. I wanted an original finish and had several options. I drive this car and just got tired of having a rusty looking manifold when I showed it.

  9. This post is because I have had several requests for interior and under carriage photos.
  10. Do you have a 26 or 27 6 cyl? If you have an 8 cyl, ignore the following information. I have a 1931 6 cyl. The generator is driven off the timing chain. To remove the generator, 1-remove the 3" cover on the front of the timing chain cover. 2-Remove the 2 nuts from the top of the generator. 3-Use a long socket extension to remove the bolt on the bottom of the generator. 4-Tilt the generator to about 30 degrees toward the passenger headlight. 5- reach in the hole on front of the timing chain cover and lift chain off the generator sprocket. TIPS: After steps 1 & 4, take a light and mirror to view the chain on the sprocket. I use a short screwdriver to lift the chain as it is sharp. Do not turn engine as you will need to take the front of the engine apart to reset the cam. When replacing the generator, insert the generator sprocket in hole and lift the chain onto the sprocket. I use two gaskets between the generator and the engine. On 1931, the engine oil is used to lubricate the generator sprocket but the generator. There are two bushings to oil.
  11. Check the vacuum lines to the wiper motor. I had a leak in the rubber hose under the dash.
  12. Closeup of front end, does this help?
  13. I was at a collector of misc things and saw this 1929 Bugatti. I don't know if this is a kit car or the a real 1929 car. Is there any way way to authenticate this car? This was the only photo I could get due to everything else around it. The car is not for sale nor anything else he owns. Your correct, the car is a VW Kit car. With everything in the barn, I couldn't tell.
  14. My insurance company charges $105.00 for 15,000 collision plus 100-300 liability. The same coverage if I rented the car for weddings, etc. will cost $1,000 due to the increased liability coverage for the passengers. If my 1931 sedan should have a problem and injure the client, you bet there will be a law suite. I have driven for friends without charge and they normally give me a cash donation a couple of days later. I never ask for money or even talk about a charge amount. The donation is usually in the $200 range. If you rent a limo for a wedding the charge is $300 for 3 hours plus extra time is an additional charge. Most people don't realize the costs in taking an antique car to an event. My costs are not only driving from the wedding to the reception but the greater distance to and from my home. It is a surprise how quickly you can rack up 35 to 50 miles. 1. I drive at 35 MPH averaging 20 MPH in town and the car gets about 10 MPG. 2. You must arrive early to get up front parking for photos. 3. The photographer will take photos. 4. You will leave the wedding first and arrive at the reception after the guest arrive. 5. I purchase and provide a JUST MARRIED sign, Wine bottle, glasses, with a snack of cheese and meat. 6. People will say it is just a short trip of 6 miles from the wedding to the reception but it will take 4 hours from the time I leave home to my return. 7. I leave an hour before the wedding and a 4:30 wedding will completely shoot a Saturday afternoon and evening. In my case, I don't want to give up the 6 to 8 Saturdays it will take to cover expenses and insurance.
  15. The price has been changed from 'Best offer over 7,500 to a flat price of 8,700. Additionally, I recently had the radiator cleaned out.

  19. I have seen two different 1939 Buick Roadmasters with a red cloth interior? Please look at the attached photos and let me know if the 1939 used the red color. The red is very looks nice but was it an interior actually used?
  20. Have you driven to Dayton before? What routs are you planning to use? What hotel will you be staying in? Without a trailer, it is a 5 hour drive to Lexington. During the week, driving through Cincinnati between 3:00pm and 6:00pm is not fun, even without a trailer. Your biggest problem in Cincinnati is the drivers all want to get their first. The last 3 miles in KY is a very steep down hill grade, I would go down in the second from the right lane if you will be taking 75 in Ohio. I will be going to Lexington on the 3rd and returning the 5th.
  21. You lill need to purchase a VALVE SPRING LIFTER KD TOOLS for a FLATHEAD ENGINE Check ebay Item number: 150351034323
  22. The motor in a 1911 Davis car built in Richmond IN used the spark combustion chamber plugs on the top of each cylinder. I expect other cars of this vintage used the same setup.
  23. Auction is near Dayton, OH on Saturday, June 13. If anyone is interested I will attempt to get additional information. I just found out the truck does run. Check out the photos.
  24. Nice story except Packard had air conditioning in their 1940 car.
