  1. My 1917 D45 has a wrist (piston) pins secured in rods by machined bolts, same way 1928 Master has it..... I have no way to tell if the rods are aftermarket or not, they still have small "noses" (or dippers) to push oil into lower ends. I can check partnumbers once my partbook arrives.
  2. Hi Larry, no way I wanted to say Mark is not good guy.. I wanted to say that in Europe we really need to rely on you guys in USA as the supply of parts here is really limited. Josef
  3. Hi Mark, thanks for your kind response My issue is that I am in Prague, Czech Republic and I only need to seek help from good people on the other side of big pond .... Josef
  4. Hi, looking to buy two (one is also a help) 26" flat base Baker rims in restorable condition for my 1917 D45. They are for Straight side 34x4 tyre. Should be 2 3/4" or 2 11/16" (68 to 70mm) wide at tyre bead. 4 locking pins and angle split. Any offers considered. Josef
  5. Ben, I appreciate both approaches, that is to keep irreplaceable original books as safe and clean as possible (here I understand the concern of your friend you mentioned) For workshop use you can always scan these original books and print as many sheets as you need and when you need. This is not so much effort in my view. Josef
  6. Offering 8 rim wedges / clamps for early 1920s Buick. Maybe fit another year or model. They have seen better times, but are far better than nothing. Parts are in Prague, Czech Republic (Europe). PM for details.
  7. I believe that 6.00 - 21" is correct size for 28 Master. with Buffalo A5 wheels. I had original Dunlop tires in this size on my car and bought the same size from Coker. I think 7.00 or 8.00 would look really fat. Is you car model 28-47 on 121" wheelbase? I love these Buffalo wheels, do you have all 6 of them? Difficult to source them these days.... PS: looking into 1928 Shop manual right now, is says tire size for Master (120" and 128" wheelbase cars) at 33x6 (6.00 tire on 21" rim) or 31x5.25 for Standard (114" wheelbase cars) . The math does not quite work with 5.25", but I think this size is not available anyway for 21 rims.
  8. Ok, guage is out and looks to be in working order. Surprised by not-so-nice workmanship - rivets or bolts possibly not needed, but the soldering is at least questionable...
  9. I will try to reiterate the question again / does anybody know the lenght of axle shafts for 1917 6 cyl model D45? @SummitA - do you know what lenght you need for your car?
  10. Hugh, the strap wrench looks to be a right solution for my issue, thank you. I will report back. Josef
  11. Exhaust silencer is back in its place, with new tubing. We kept the smallest tube original. Another question raised today after we pulled petrol tank - there is nice original gauge, but seems to be stuck. How to get it out of the tank? There are no visible screws or rivets, is the gauge flange soldered directly to the tank?
  12. Hi Terry, thanks for the response. So - any idea about the lenght of D45 shafts? I suspect that the parts I am offered come off 4 cyl model but I have no way to prove it. Josef
  13. Sorry for being a bit off topic, but does anybody know if the axle shafts (and hubs) interchange between 4 cyl (D35) and 6cyl (D45) models of 1916/17 age? I was offered a decent set of some 32 3/4 llong shafts and not sure if it can be used for my 1917 D45. thanks for any advice. Josef
  14. @ Ben - thanks for your response. I just placed the pictures here to keep the discussion going and hopefully get more feedback about missing / incorrect things. So you say the inlet & exhaust tubes, water pump and vacuum tank were originally black, correct? Was that gloss, semi, dull? What about the ignition wire tube and water outlet / inlet? I will look closer onto cylinder block (yes, it looks somewhat greenish even to me) and crankcase, if it is painted or not. In this stage I lean towards making the car running in "Morgan Wright style" should you will and deal with colors / details later on. @ Morgan - thanks for the hint on the plug terminals, I will put it on my wish list.... 🙂 Next question I have here is regarding the speedo drive. Front right wheel hub has (I think) 4 threaded holes for the ring gear,, wheel angle gear is missing and the bowden wire too. Does anybody here have a pictures / details of original setup? From internet search it seems there is a really wide variety of these gears so I am not sure what I should look for.
  15. Wow... not sure when the ad is dated from but it shows some impressive numbers..... I guess there still must be one piece for me somewhere 🙂
