    '30 sill plates

    Hi Guys, I picked up a door sills catalogue at Hershey which lists sills for a 1930 4 dr. Custom Sedan. I don't have the gentleman's name but here is his contact info. Phone- 973-423-1196 and Email- doorsills@gmail.com. He is out of New Jersey and does a brisk business at Hershey. Impressive catalogue listings of all years and makes. Hope this helps- Dave

    Pontiac Streamliner 8 air cleaner

    Phil, It hooks into a steel dowel pin on the raised boss of the flywheel cover. The pin has an appropriate hole to receive the spring. Dave

    Pontiac Streamliner 8 air cleaner

    Phil, This is a photo of my 1953 Pontiac linkage return spring setup. Is this what you are referring to? Do you need a different side or angle? Hope this helps- Dave

    Clip identification on battery cover

    Hello Summershandy, Just recently brought my car out of winter storage and was able to take a few photos which may help you. This is the center section for the battery cover which you have. Notice the right end has a tab extending downward which presses into the right side of your cover in post #7 and the left end will fit under your tab of the existing cover. Hope this helps- Dave

    1929 - 1930 ? Pontiac 2 door sedan

    I may be able to offer some clarification. My information is coming from the Standard Catalog of Pontiac, 2nd edition by John Gunnel. From the job number which you have given-- #8940 is a 1929 model year, 2d sedan, series 6-29. The engine number which you have given--P617435 falls into what is listed as a 1929-1/2 Pontiac with engine numbers starting at P608157 and ending at 673500. The body style number for 1929-1/2 Pontiac is A8940. 1929 Pontiac engine numbers range from starting at P376341 to end at P461000(approx). 1930 Pontiac engine numbers range from P673501 to P744000(approx) I am assuming a late body for 1929 combined with an early 1929-1/2 engine. The number 526865 is not referenced but is it the casting number of the block? I can find no reference to the CWC in the Abbreviations section of the book. I guess we don't have all of your answers but we're off to a good start. Good luck- Dave

    1937 Pontiac Wiper transmission

    Pete, Yes indeed- it was a little tough but kept working it all the way around. Had success and now the project is complete. Dave

    What year is this rear end & front end??

    tartop, Based on the Indian head insignia on the hubcap I believe you have a 1930 rear and front end. Dave

    1937 Pontiac Wiper transmission

    Don, Thanks so much for your advice and encouragement- I was able to remove the tower by carefully working a putty knife under all of its edges to loose it from the gasket. I then was able to complete a repair that was necessary and reassemble with a gasket sealant. The most difficult part of the job was to re-attach the chains which drive the wiper. The entire job was successful and I now have both wipers working as they should. Thanks again- Dave

    1937 Pontiac Wiper transmission

    Don, By looking up under the dash I can see this clamp. It does come off easily. I'm hesitant to pry or force the unit for fear of breaking. I'll be working at it quite gingerly. Thanks again- Dave

    1937 Pontiac Wiper transmission

    I would like to remove the wiper transmission from the drivers side on my '37 Pontiac for rebuilding purposes. Looking up under the dash I find that the chain which drives the wiper is off. I can also remove the drive arm which goes to the the wiper motor from the transmission. My question- at this point how do I remove the transmission from the cowl? This unit really appears to be stuck (fastened) in place. Thanks for any help to get me started- Dave
