  1. I have a 1922 engine that Is looking for a new home. It turns over and had oil in the pan when I got it. It has a couple of broken valve springs, it other than that looks good. It is missing the water pump / dist., generator, carb, and I might use the oil pan on another one of my motors. Let me know if you are interested in it.
  2. My 15 year old daughter and I are restoring my Grandfathers 1925 dodge brothers touring car, and I am needing a rear drivers side door. I am interested in one in any condition. Let me know if you have one that you would be willing to sell.
  3. This is a picture from a local refinery and I am working to try to get an idea on rough year that the picture was taken based off the trucks.
  4. This is the one I am using as a pattern to make the other one from. That one was all but gone from rust. There wasn't even a quarter if the metal left. I will be reusing the one that is pictured.
  5. Mine is a 1925 single vertical bolt going through the frame rail. There is a piece that us riveted into the frame to add strength where the the engine / transmission ring sits and bolts in. I will post a picture tomorrow of the pice that is riveted into the frame. One side of mine was badly rusted.
  6. I am going to be having a machine shop make a new frame insert that goes in the frame where the rear engine support bolts in. One of mine was to far gone to be repaired, but luckily my other one is in great shape to be the pattern, while they are making the one I need I could easily have them make more if any of you are needing one. Luckily it is the same pattern for both sides of the car it just is turned upside down on one side compared to the other. If anyone is interested contact me, and I can send you cost for them. I am excited about trying my hand at hot riveting them back in especially due to the countersunk a flat rivets that are used in it. Adam
  7. I am looking for advice / suggestions on making new rubber axle bump stops for my 1925 touring. I have all the metal hardware that bolts the rubber to the frame. It is just the rubber that is shot.Thanks in advance
  8. I am working on my 1925 Dodge Brothers Touring car, and I have some significant pitting on the frame where the body was sitting on the frame. I am wondering what thoughts are in brazing in the pits vs mig welding the pitting. There are a few areas that the pitting is deep enough that it almost is a hole. The largest pits are around 1/4" in diameter. I would like to fix the pitting rather than cut a section of the frame out and weld in a new section of metal. This was my Grandfathers car, and I am trying to use as much of the original parts as possible.
  9. Thanks for the advice. I will get a manual ordered as well. Adam
  10. I am getting ready to pull my engine and transmission from my 1925 Touring ( the body is off already). I am curious what the best way to do this is. I am guessing drop the rear end and then try to work the engine and transmission backwards. Is it easier to pull the transmission first and then the engine? I am looking for advice from anyone that has done this before. Thanks, Adam
  11. I went out this weekend and bought and picked up the parts from Gene. I had a great time meeting Gene and talking with him about his projects. He is a great guy and I am lucky to have got to meet him. Adam
  12. Are these the correct wheels for a 1925 Dodge Brothers Touring car? Also if they are do you have a rough idea of what you need to see out of them?
  13. Hi, I am wondering if any of you veteran dodge guys can help me out. I am new to dodge restorations, and recently acquired my grandfathers 1924 dodge sedan. Sadly someone recently decided to steal the generator / starter, and the radiator. So I am needing parts. I have restored a 1929 model A pickup and finding parts was no problem. However I am having a hard time with finding parts for this dodge. I am interested in any information that you guys can give me on parts, and good places for me to learn more about early dodges. Thanks, Adam Akers akersa@bethelks.edu
