    leaf springs

    If the spec. isn't available, calculate the weight of the car, WB length, total length, the length of the spring eyes at the chassis, and type of ride wanted. You should then be able to get a shop to make you what you need or find a suitable spring from stock. Don't give up, springs are replaced by many restorers. Are your springs missing?

    That looks like a good prospect for a fun cruiser.

    What have you ploughed up

    I found an old set of cast iron muffler ends where the cable guys were digging. I have seen a lot of 1930s cars used for riverbank erosion control.

    head/manifold gasket replacement questions

    It is all risky, I like a product that is fine dry metal powder that finds the leaks but cannot plug the system. One such product is named Alumaseal. There are others out there also. The Exhaust gaskets are good until they leak, which will always be obvious when it happens.

    Brushes for starter motor

    What ever happened to First class postage? Flat rate is always more expensive for light weight items.

    Demountable Rims

    I like to tighten fasteners by hand and then see what a torque wrench says then I know the feel needed by hand. My friend Mr Armstrong always tried to prove is name and snapped more than 1 bolt, so don't reef on them before you judge your strength.

    1923 Head removal

    If it is in the car try to start it. If it doesn't run still see if compression will loosen it. Use lots of penetrating oil and maybe some heat. Good luck.

    FS For Sale 1932 Reo Royale 8-35 Sedan

    A very nice restoration! It will quickly sell I am sure. !932 autos seem to be a pinnacle year in styling as the manufactures were trying to stem the losses in the depression.

    Graham Hollywood Bearings

    Be careful replacing bearings, only do it if the old ones are damaged. Some of the new made ones are foreign junk. You can buy bearings by pertinent dimensions if you can't find specific ID.
