  1. I don't know if you've seen this link.....has a number of photos of installed insert without headliner and insert just by itself....also, maybe one of these guys could help if you don't see what you're looking for.
  2. Looks great!....and like so much fun on a nice spring day!
  3. Glad it worked out for you......sorry, I didn't get it to you sooner, but all my stuff is packed in boxes....luckily, when I looked, my notebook was in the top box!
  4. John, I redid my shocks in 2014 and did this drawing showing 8 1/2"L to the "curved pieces" in the front and 13"L to the "curved pieces" in the back. These dimensions came from when I redid them back in '75. I got the car in '71 and I assume the straps on it were original that I initially measured from. Also, it is a 4 door sedan......don't know if dimensions were different for different bodies / weights.
  5. You have to remove oil pan to get to oil pump...there is a screen filter on it. Here's a photo of other side of engine.
  6. Yes, here are linkages (another person's car). I do not know what is correct engine color for car vs. truck...supposedly when I first restored my car (back in '76) the engine color was a sort of light blue spruce green ..if that makes sense...when I redid my engine Romar had the exact color, so used that.
  7. What another owner did for their oil filter, but shows bracket mounting to water jacket plate
  8. The bracket mounts with the water jacket bolts......Is that what you needed?
  9. Speedo / dash cluster
  10. Headlights
  11. So sorry to hear...I know he helped me on my cars as well as helping many others....know he will be missed by family, but also by so many others on this forum.
  12. The top photo looks like a spark plug wire seperator on a '29-'30 6 cyl Mopar product.
  13. Thank you all for the replies. While the Stomberg appears to be in good shape I don't know if can be working one minute while I drive and the next it be falling apart.....when I was a kid working on this car I didn't even know what pot metal was and so was blissfully ignorant.....maybe I need to be so again. Anyway, the carb, car and me are 50 years sounds like the Carter may not be as easy a replacement as I thought.....maybe I need to start saving for the Myers, aluminum replacement. It looks as all the stuff on the "Vintage & Classic Reproduction" (through Myers) list has diminished somewhat for a '29 DA, so maybe an investment in the future to keep her running for me and future owners.
  14. I have my original (or at least since I've owned the car in '71) Stromberg U2 carb on my '29 DA. I've rebuilt it and all looks good regarding cracks in the pot metal..... the car runs well with it also. I've seen different posts where people say that the old pot metal carbs should be replaced with one poster stating they had (or heard of) a car destroyed due to a carb falling apart while driving....not trying to be dramatic, but I am only familiar w/ this particular pot metal carb and not sure of its metal characteristics. I am also thinking of the future when the car goes to someone else and perhaps when the pot metal finally goes will there be an alternative or repro carb to keep the car going. So, I'm thinking of a few options: 1) Keep the original on the car, but have a replacement backup. 2) Get a repro replacement...Myers carries one in aluminum.... very, very pricey, but would look original to car and be an easy fit. 3) Get a replacement that would work...I hear a Carter BB-1A is a replacement (can anyone verify?), but don't know if it will interchange well w/ linkage, etc. I guess I'm asking thoughts on this and what have others done when dealing w/ these old pot metal carbs (or other pieces like distributors, starter switch, etc.) on their cars. Thanks in advance!
