  1. Still looking for wheel bolts. Thanks.
  2. I will greatly appreciate that. I would also be interested in what you are replacing those bolt with. Or do you just have extra wheels. My concerns are that after releasing the peened ends of the bolts the threads are worn and damaged. I want to have a good grip area where I plan to install steel lock nuts and red Loctite instead of hammering the bolts again. Thank You
  3. Need Wheel Bolts for my 17 ED. Short Bolt is 3/8" 16. Long Bolt 7/16" 14. Thank You, Jay
  4. https://youtu.be/MdbOMRKvvRQ Another example of not enough truck for the load.
  5. Better to have more than you need, than to need more than you got.
  6. Yes, I 've been there, mic in hand, with my Bearing Man, pouring over catalogs. It would save a lot of time if someone has already done this and had a good number. That's what I'm hoping for. As for bearing quality, if someone has a number my first choice would be to find some old stock US made piece. By the By, the axle seal converts to a Timken #40769S.
  7. No numbers yet. Still have the other side to pull and then I'll pull the bearing from the shaft. May be hiding behind the shoulder.
  8. Greetings. I am servicing a 1941 Hollywood rear axle bearings. These are the Ball Bearing type. Does anyone have a part number for the replacement of these bearings? Any special service advice? Thank You.
  9. Thank You Gary. I stumbled into Mr. DeMar's articles just recently and contacted him directly. A very good fellow he supplied me with copies of all of his Edison Battery material. Your numbers are very close to the information he supplied and I am on my way. I have purchased the Potassium Hydroxide and am awaiting the delivery of the Lithium Hydroxide. The batteries in the car have not been maintained properly for who knows how long but with a bit of charging the car will move about quite nicely. It's just that the charge won't last long and soon I am going through the len
  10. I am looking to renew the electrolyte in our Edison Nickel Iron Batteries is our 1914 Detroit. Does anyone have experience with the Potassium Hydroxide solution? Where to buy the chemicals? What proportions to use? Thank You
  11. Just had new leather put on the clutch for my 17. Looks great, haven't got it installed yet. Bob Knaak bobknaak@hotmail.com
  12. Packard Folk, Word has reached me that a 54 Clipper participating in the Lincoln Highway Tour has broken a rear axle in Nebraska. It sounds to me like this car has the 11 inch brakes and should be able to use the axle from a 1954 or 55 Clipper. #446802. Anyone that can get an axle on a Grey Hound and bail this fellow out should contact Robert Escalente 714-543-2980. He knows where the car is. Let's not leave this felow on the side of the road.
  13. Thank You Gentlemen. I need to climb under mine now and get the numbers. I will be in touch. Meanwhile the search continues. As I enjoy driving the Ole Buggy and hope to bring it to South Bend in 2017 to celebrate its Centenary.
  14. Kevin, That looks to be close enough. I will have to get you a casting number or other identifier to be sure. Please email with location and price. jhubbard@automuseum.org
  15. Yes Sir, that is correct. 1913 through 1917 were transaxle cars. Mine has been repaired in the past and figured it would be a good idea to have a spare.
  16. I am Looking for a transmission for my 17 Studebaker Six. Complete or parts. I would prefer a late unit with 3.7 gears but will consider any unit with a good case. Thank You.
  17. Could you send me a photo of the spare engine and parts? Thank You, Jay
  18. Wanted. Cylinder block for 39 Super Eight. Will concider complete engine. Looking for something with out cracks. Thank You, Jay
  19. Have you pulled the water distribution tube and flushed the back of your block?
  20. Thanks Sam. You can email me at jhubbard@automuseum.org.
  21. I could use some good brake drums for my '36 4A. 35-6 Dictator drums will do. How about a straight left side front fender? Don't have an extra heater but may have a radio. Thanks, Jay
  22. I think we have a missunderstanding. The type of axle in this 1948 has no pressed cups. It appears that the roller bearing in the brake drum rides directly on the axle housing. Further research looks like Ford intended the repair to include replacing the entire axle housing. Am I reading that correctly? If so, what do all the Ford folk do to repair these bearings?
  23. Have a 1948 Continental with pitting in the rear wheel bearing inner race. This is the section that is part of the axle housing. What is the repair for this problem? Thank You, Jay
  24. Need cylinder block for 1910 White GA. Will consider whole engine. Thank You.
  25. Need cylinder block for 1910 White GA. Will concider whole engine. Thank You
