  1. Do to lack of interest of others to do something with the car, I did something with the car. I am now building a tree house village which can be seen on facebook under "Tree Creations in Geneseo" ( http://www.facebook.com/pages/Tree-Creations-in-Geneseo/507249102622153 ) for the latest updates or can also be seen at TreeCreations.org. Since these photos, the scaffolding has been removed. If you are ever in the area, feel free to stop by and check it out! I hope you enjoy! Best, ~Joe Ferrero Geneseo, NY
  2. Hi. I am not a generator expert, so please take what I say with a grain of salt. Did you try to "motor" your generator?. If you ground the case and touch power to one of the terminals, does the generator spin?? If not, there may be something wrong internally. (a generator is a motor "in reverse"). Next thing, if it does motor, see if a smaller diameter pulley is available. The smaller your pulley diameter, the faster the revolutions of your generator (which should help with idle and basic around town situations). How about your voltage regulator... Generally it is an external regula
  3. Thanks for the dimensions and replies. I have been posting on Facebook the progress (so Max - the boy) has access. If you would like to follow what has been going on, you can see it at: Facebook Any other tips, tricks, or pointers are greatly appreciated. Oh as a side note, if you would like to see my 1946 Triumph as a tree house, check it out on facebook at: Tree Creations in Geneseo | Facebook Thanks again! ~Joe Ferrero
  4. Does anyone have a copy of the Motor's Body & Frame manual or an early Motor's Crash Book that shows the late 1940s Chrysler 4 door windsor frame with dimensions? If so, can I get a scan of it either posted here or sent to me direct? (jjferrero3@yahoo.com) I believe it is a C38?? I didn't see a tag on the firewall (removed). The reason why I am asking... I have a kid that that came to me (age 13 named Max) that doesn't have a lot of money to work with, and he went out and bought a car for $400 that hasn't moved in over 40 years. When he showed me what he bought, I saw the front fenders,

  6. I have 3 front axles with the spindles for Auburn ('34?, '35?, '36?) One has backing plates on it (if anyone is looking for an axle) and I live about 10 minutes away from the frame - and Mike, I'd love to see the '15 Olds sometime! Best Regards, Joe Ferrero Geneseo, NY
  7. Now, Julian has done very nice work, and I trust him with the fat man fabrications and his advise. I personally have a car like yours that I have hot rodded... I have done a nice front subframe set up for it (using 79-81 olds / malibu as a donor vehicle) with pictures if you're interested. As for fiberglass fenders... I do not know of a source for oldsmobile fiberglass fenders, but for the right price, I'm sure that I could get them made for you. If i can be of assistance, or if you would like to see photos... drop a line at jjferrero3@yahoo.com good luck ~Joe
  8. pictures, price, and location please?
  9. if you find something let me know... I'm looking for a 4 cylinder version for my 1915.... I'll probably end up making a set for mine. Good luck ~Joe
  10. A friend emailed me thinking that I may know what this car is by showing me some candid photos of parts... I have no clue. Can anyone look at these photos and tell me what it may belong to??? sorry for the "anyone" typo in the heading and thanks in advance!
  11. As for value... in this economy... I'll give you $500.00 for it. (basically whatever someone is willing to pay)
  12. I am probably wrong but possibly a 34 or 35 8 cyl car. it was a shaft driven supercharger. is it for sale?
  13. one more thing... this site may become useful to you. check out its index. http://www.oldcarmanualproject.com/ Best,
  14. the torque specs generally did not change up through the 1960's... a good estimate can be found on early 1960s and before. (ie 40 / 60 / 80 lbft on head bolts in sequence) a decent generic manual can be found free on line in google books - dykes automotive encyclopedia. other more specific car manuals can be found and read at the following. I hope this helps. http://www.tocmp.com/ http://www.oldirononline.com/ http://www.oldcarmanualproject.com/brochures/Olds/1936/index.htm
