  1. Yes, is a Dodge alright. Looks like a 114" wheel base body, 1917-18. It has garnish rails on the doors and a flat bar between the stanchions. The rear half is same or earlier, with flanges on the outside to attach the rear guards rather than having a wheel well. Does it have a body number on the engine side of the scuttle?
  2. After searching everywhere for the correct windshield for my '57 2 door hardtop (W451) I got one from Timo Tanskanen. Expensive at $1200 plus $200 freight I have no complaint re quality it is excellent. W453 fits some other '57s.
  3. The car is 1926 series, built about 17th May 1926. If it didn't have an "A" with the serial number "646559" it would have been built in October 1921 and have been a 1922 series car. Beautiful car, I think if I had the pick between 1922 or your 1926 I would take your '26. Well done Henrik! John
  4. It would make sense it it was galvanised or zinc plated. I seem to remember unpainted filler tubes. Colour for dodge engines of that era was an olive colour
  5. Measure the wheel diameter across the inside flat part of the rim where the tyre sits i.e. inside diameter of the tyre. Cars were 24" 3rd Kelsey till car A207,373 cNov 2nd 1924, your car would be about Aug 23 1924. My book is Dodge Master Parts List 1927. John
  6. This photo is a 24" boss-bolted rear wheel, first used around May 8th 1921. From my book, it is a 3rd Kelsey, your 6 bolted front hubs ended in June 10th 1920 with car 490,413 and would be 25", 2nd Kelsey.
  7. Are you sure they are 24"? They look like 25" immediately after the wooden felloe wheels changed to steel in 1918. Your rear wheels are not boss-bolted and the front wheels have 6 hub bolts instead of 8.
  8. Yes, it's same as I have for my '18 and '25 RHD cars. The coil is mounted on the side because of the steering box on RHD cars.
  9. The picture that I posted (reply #8) from the 1927 Master Parts List is identical to the page in the 1918 Master Parts List I have. Same parts numbers for everything. I think what Jason wrote is correct, at that time, 1925, one car came off the production line every 45 seconds and it would be hard for jack manufacturers to keep that pace up and deliver 2000-3000 per week. It makes sense to use several suppliers for the jacks
  10. tri-nitro-toluene = explosive mixture, I didn't know it could be used in cars, is it?
  11. Hello Pete, I have just come across your post. Attached are info which may help you with your jack. I think the one shown was the one supplied with your car and the data comes from the Feb 1927 DB Master Parts Price List. The one I have for my 1925 Sedan is stamped Ajax Machine Wis. 4-14-14 (April 1914?) and on the other side #102<!-- google_ad_section_end -->
  12. I haven't read through all the replies yet to see if it has been mentioned yet but what about checking the fuel cap to see if it has a vent? It's possible to have a vacuum build-up in the tank fighting against the fuel pump and perhaps even sucking air into the fuel line.
  13. Without looking at the car the label is 3.1/2" x 1.1/2" 37318732 Paint Trim Body 4LHL 117 2176
  14. Thankyou "My Toys". It doesn't have the model number on the data plate, just the Paint, trim, body and VIN. However, I think it is a D67-1 Royal because there are only three holes for the 'Royal' badge to fit into on the side and 'Custom Royal' would need six I think. Also there are no front bumper teeth as used on the Custom Royal. I have already picked up from eBay over half the missing pieces but I am still looking for a pair of lancer emblems for the fins.
  15. Crikey! Did you manage to save the tube?
