  1. For sale: One set of four (front and rear) 20" (28x4) Kelsey wooden spoke wheels that were removed from my 1924 DB business coupe so that I could replace them with 24" wheels. The "sheen" in the pic is caused by the linseed oil rubdown I gave them before the picture was taken. Note that the two rear wheels have only the front portion of the center hub plate as I used the rear plates in mounting my 24" wheels. The front wheels come with all lug bolts but I believe there is only one lug bolt left in the rear wheels. $400 plus actual UPS shipping or you can pickup the wheels at Muleshoe, Texas, or at Albuquerque after Thanksgiving. I believe UPS can handle two of these wheels per package to stay under their weight limits but I will have to check further. Email me at: NOSPAMrmcclend@wildblue.net by removing the NOSPAM from the address or call 806*438*7760
  2. I inherited an old Ford truck bed trailer that I have cleaned up, painted and replaced the tires and wheels to make it more presentable but I have been unsure of the year model truck it came from. I think it is from a 1940 Ford but I am not sure. I've used the trailer to occasionally pull behind my refurbed 8n tractors which is the reason for the red and white color scheme. I am selling my shop so I may decide to get rid of it but I need to know what it is. Anyone out there recognize this bed? Sorry, but the fenders were already gone when I got the trailer.

  3. Ford Pinto eh? No wonder I didn't recognize it. The only horse-named Ford I've ever owned was a Mustang. Thanks! Ron
  4. Going through an old box of auto parts, I found this new AC fuel pump still in an AC box. I should recognize this but it does not ring any bells for me. It has the number 145F42132 stamped on the side of the mounting flange but I have had no luck tying it to a AC parts number. Does anyone know what this fits?
  5. Can anyone identify the two cars in the background of this pic of my grandfather? Gee! Garages with wooden floors.

  7. Thanks Mike, Stephen and Dave for the info. My satellite server, or my PC, has been doing strange things lately with my email so I thought maybe it was just me. Having been a member of the DBC back in the late 1990s, I am really looking forward to start getting the newsletters again. Invaluable information in those pieces of newsprint. Thanks again for the replies. Ron

  9. I used the online form at the Dodge Brothers Club website to join on May 22nd and paid via PayPal. I did get a PayPal receipt via email but have not yet heard anything from the Club. I had thought I might at least get an emailed confirmation from the Club of their receipt of my request but so far I have received nothing. Can anyone tell me how the normal membership procedure works? Thanks. Ron
  10. Actually the whole intake manifold appears to have been reconstructed. Model A carb sounds right as the family who left me the DB also left me with some Model A wire wheels. Just darn! More DB parts to try and locate. <img src="http://forums.aaca.org/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" /> Thanks for the info. Ron
  11. The carburetor on my '34 Dodge appears to be different from the ones shown in the manual? Can anyone tell me if this carburetor was ever used on this DB? And yes I know the brush cover on the starter/generator is missing. I removed it to check out the brushes.
  12. <div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">Looks like an International </div></div> Mymolalla, you are the winner! Apparently it fits International trucks from 1938 to 1948. No wonder it looked familair to me. Here's one on eBay..
  13. Now how did that slip my mind? The gauge cluster, found in an old storage building that belonged to my late father-in-law, undoubtedly belonged to him. I know for a fact he owned numerous International winch and 5th wheel trucks during his lifetime. In fact he had three house-moving winch trucks when he passed away a few years ago, a 1937, a 1947 and a 1957. Right now I'm looking out the window at an International hood, sides and grill he had taken off of one of his trucks, probably a 1930s model. You've probably guessed it right. And yes it does indeed look like an International truck cluster. I worked for my father-in-law for several summers and drove several of his Internationals. At least your's is a good enough guess as to where to continue to research. Thanks. Ron
  14. Hi Dave. I sent an email to Myers this morning so maybe he can help. The fan/pulley/bushing assembly I just received from him was in excellent condition. My machinist says he may be able to build a new fan shaft if the old shaft comes lose from the bracket. I've looked at mine closely this morning and I seem to see a hairline seam around where the bracket and the shaft join that would indicate these are actually two parts. However if this is two parts, I still cannot tell if the shaft is screwed into the bracket or just pressed in. Hopefully I can just locate a good bracket and shaft and be done with it. Ron
  15. Thanks for the reply. The one machine shop I have found locally that expressed any interest in doing the rebuild work says he has no way to set up his lathe to handle the shaft and belt-adjustment assembly together. However, I've just about decided that the fan shaft may be either pressed, or screwed, into the adjustment assembly so it may be possible to separate the two parts. I'm still looking into this possibility. Interestingly, it has also been recommended to me to replace the old fan bushings with sealed bearings. However, this work also seems beyond the skills of my local machine shop. Still trying to find answers. Ron
