  1. Hi All,

    I have a update on my generator problem. I looked on the Dodge

    Brothers preferred vendor list and found  A&S Ignition Inc. in Patterson NY It was 1 hr. away. A phone call was made and they were willing to look at it.

    To make a long story short, they checked it out took it apart while I was looking on and he noticed a bad brush and the commutator was out of round. I went back the next day and picked it up .The cost to replace all three brushes and to turn down the commutator was $65.00 which I thought was very reasonable.

    During the winter months I'm going to bring my starter to him and have him go through it also.

    BTW: I installed the gen. and it's working perfectly.

    Thanks to those who commented on.

  2. Hi All,

    Just came back from a car show and noticed that my gen. wasn't charging. It would discharge with the lights on , but would not charge when I raced the engine.

    I checked and the fan belt was tight.

    Can somebody give me some ideas as to what also to check before I give up and send it out .

    Also ,who is a good shop to send it to in or around CT or the northeast for that matter.

    Thanks,

    Joe C.


  3. Hi All,

    I was at car show the other day and I noticed my front springs on my 31 DH coupe were horizontal if not above the horizontal plane. The car was on level ground.

    I pulled the springs off to see if they lost their normal curve. They didn't. At least I don't think so.

    The distance from the shackle holes to the top of the spring measured 2" I couldn't find any info on what dims. the springs should. Mine measure 35 1/4" from hole to hole,1 3/4" wide with a total of 7 leaves. The part # is 322646 . My local spring company couldn't see any problem with them but he admitted doesn't have any info on the specs. for that spring. I guess what I'm asking is, does anybody have any info on these springs? again the # is 322646.

    Thanks,

  4. Dick,

    The vent tube is on the way. USPO says you should get it Weds. We'll see.

    I have the tracking # if needed.

    If it's not the right one just past it on, but I'm pretty sure it will fit. I cleaned it off to make sure that the grease/gunk wasn't covering up a hole.

    As for the cost, Would you believe the USPO let me ship it to you free( :):) ), because you did so much at the 2014 meet.

  5. Phil, I used to get Amalie 40wt non -det. at Napa for years, now they can't get it anymore from any of their contacts. I searched  the internet for 40wt oil and found out about  T. S. and their brand "Traveller" but I didn't recognize that brand either.
