  1. I highly recommend Larry Chegwidden ph# 503-253-8941. He makes custom rear outer axle seals out of aluminum billet with modern nitrile seals. He will ship them to you super-fast for $60-$65 each (includes s/h). Just tell him your needs and they will magically appear on your doorstep within days. I just put a set on my 1929 Dodge Bros DA Phaeton--PERFECT or better! Joe

  2. Has anyone tried sloshing a Lockheed Brake Fluid Reservoir with a fuel tank sloshing compound?

    My 1929 Dodge DA phaeton has the "tin can" type reservoir attached to the firewall. Since I'm rebuilding the entire brake system, I'd like to minimize introduction of rust into the system from the can. Looking into the can one can see a mild amount of surface corrosion now.

    My guess is that brake fluid (DOT 3) will eat this sloshing stuff alive, thus contaminating the fluid anyway. Thx, Joe

  3. I have a 1929 DA Sports Phaeton that was originally RHD from South America. We decided to convert it over to LHD. The bell housing casting is a mirror image between the two with the pedals on opposite sides. As far as the gearbox itself, there are mirror image differences with regard to the mounting of the parking brake handle assembly. They are therefore not interchangeable. I wouldn't be surprised if the 1930 version uses a similar setup. Joe

  4. Hi. I am in the middle of a restoration of the same car you describe: a 1929 DA Sports Phaeton. I am fairly certain the word "touring" is often used when describing this vehicle, but in 1929 the description "Sports Phaeton" is actually correct. With Dodge Brothers, the "Sports" part of the name refers to a vehicle with wire wheels and sidemounts.

    I am curious to know how complete your 1929 DA Sports Phaeton is and if you would be willing to exchange some info or pictures as I still am missing a few parts such as the side curtain frames/patterns.

    Thanks, Joe
