  1. Working on 93 year old vehicles I found that this is the most helpful tool......
  2. If it's a 1926 you probably need this very elusive cap........ They show up on EBAY now & then but you have to be quick. An alternative would be to change the neck on the tank to fit a plentiful cap. Just my 2 cents.
  3. Thanks Jack but I already purchased an NOS regulator $$$$$$ so I want the generator to match. It's for a 1947 Dodge WC. I figure with everyone building street rods, or converting to 12 volts, the original parts should be available. I am a rare individual as I prefer 6volts. Bill
  4. Thanks for looking. I need an Auto-lite GEB-4801A. The search continues......
  5. Can you give me the Auto-lite numbers off the generator please? Thanks! Bill
  6. Just trying to be a "Purist" Ray! It would be time period correct. The setup I'm looking at has some parts missing and I don't know if I have the expertise to fabricate the missing parts. This setup was way ahead of it's time! (And it's used today) I joined the AACA so I could be pure...... Bill

  8. From what I remember you had 2 coupes? Glad to see you back! I have NEVER cried about my cars! (I kept all of them........)
  9. Matthew, These will answer some of your questions. It also should settle the engine color debate.
  10. Maybe a small "C" channel (1" wide x 1/4" tall) spot welded to one side of the hood underneath down the whole length to act like a rain gutter. Food for thought......
  11. Just to be clear DB26 I was referring to the cap over the gauge. It's very fragile.
