  1. My '24 has a Detroit Lubricator carb.....this one is on eBay right now Don't know if there were differences between years...maybe someone else can help w/ that info., but this is what it will look like.
  2. I may be looking at photos wrong, but to me both keiser’s and dodgenz’s photos look like exhaust pipe connects just under manifold heat control at front of manifold.....this is the way my ‘29 DA is set up.....maybe I’m not seeing something?
  3. Here are some photos of exterior assembly and some parts that I used for mine. I was told to soak in oil which I did, but my manifold was in better shape than yours. I don't know that these photos help as I don't have any spare parts. Every so often a manifold comes up on eBay ...the manifold in the 1st photo was for sale this last April...I wonder if calling Myers Early Dodge might help as I got bumpers and a clum switch from their parts cars.
  4. My '29 DA has a grease cup in engine compartment w/ flex tube to throw-out bearing...I've just never heard a "squeal" from throw-out bearing before.
  5. If it's anything like my '29 DA you have to loosen the Clum light switch at bottom ( or anything else attached to bottom of steering column)...then you can pull rod in steering column up from steering wheel. A split ring holds horn button in place. Again, not sure a Standard Six will be the same.
  6. Thanks so much! I totally forgot about that post! My old age I guess!!!
  7. I want to be prepared for my first Colorado winter (after living in Texas). I think my cars, except for starting them every so often, will be in the garage for 4 or 5 months this winter. With gas in the tanks I was thinking about using Stabil, but wasn't sure about using it w/ these old engines.
  8. I put new cables onto the old dash pulls on my '29 DA. I threaded the cable up into the hole at the bottom of the dash pull, up the groove on the opposite side of the pull and installed them. This seemed to be the way the old cables were mounted. The starter pull after a few uses pulled out of the dash and the choke pull is binding. I am going to use a graphite suspended in alcohol as a cable lubricant for the binding issue, but it there another way to attach the pull to the should it be soldered along that groove?...or another method? Again, I just copied what was there. Thanks!
  9. Mike, I've had that since the mid-70s...can't remember.
  10. I got my trim from L&L...I didn't have any of the original stuff, so don't know that a different, flat trim was used on the ends...I just used the same stuff all around like your photos.
  11. Hey, 1920s closed cars were supposed to mimic your living room or as an 4-wheeled extension of your home....maybe just not a hotel lobby.....that said, it depends how many guests you cram inside your car!
  12. Not that everything needs to be kept original, but the scale of that pattern looks more like a pattern from a 1920s mediterranean style hotel lobby. Here are some photos of original carpet details...a couple from my '29...anyway, just real simple w/ the black edging....I think the front was originally all rubber matting, but I showed the oak boards and just did carpet mats to match the rear....again, I don't mean to thwart any creativity here; just another possible option.
  13. That floor looks to be in great shape!...and like you said where are you going to get solid wood in that width?...I'd just clean up, maybe repaint and reuse....I wish my floors had been that nice! The heater looks to be something that conected around the exhaust pipe rather than radiator's hot water for warmth. Probably an accessory, not sure that it came from factory...anyway, exhaust pipes rusted through and carbon monoxide entered car and you can imagine why they went out of style...that said, it's very cool and hard to find!
  14. Not sure what it costs to ship to OZ, but I got my top material from I'm sure there are other places too....maybe Mac's or Snyder's that supply to Model A restorers.
