  1. Kenny you should post this in the Durant portion of the forum and check out the Durant Club. Hard part to find as they are pot metal.
  2. I would also get two copies one for you and one for him. If I remember right the fluid information is on a sticker under the hood. This car is new enough that there are still examples in junk yards. Buying parts from a junk yard especially pull and pay is a great way to learn about your car cheaply. He may also find some options that are not on his car that he can add.
  3. First thing he needs is a service manual and owners manual which will give him the specifications for the car ,and then a "chilltons" or" motors" manual. His local library may have these.
  4. While you are at it anybody have any Moon stuff. I also have a complete ( its apart) 1930 Canadian Buick touring Cheap, cheap, make offer.
  5. You should get a split rim tool from ebay where they are available for around $30
  6. Where are you and what is the price and best way to contact you.
  7. Make sure you paint it with a good quality hogs hair bristle brush,
  8. I tried the products without the methyl chloride mention and they failed my needs. I was in the process of stripping a hood panel with a product from Lowes called Goof off. I had one half of the panel stripped and ran out. I went to lowes for a replacement and they said they no longer carried it. I bought a gallon of Kleen Strip and tried it on the remaining panel with very little success. The part of the hood I had stripped with GOOF OFF took 45 minutes the Kleen Strip left on for four hours and it still didn't remove but one layer. I took it back to lowes and they had already had three returns that week. I called the GOOF OFF customer help line and they said it was off the market with no replacement and recommend Aircraft Stripper which was available at CARQUEST. I went to my local CARQUEST and they were removing it from their shelfs and they sold me there last two gallons.
  9. Most of us use paint remover but how many of us has heard of Methylene Chloride. It is the product that makes paint remover really work and is toxic. Without it the remover it is very weak. I have been purchasing paint remover from Lowes, Home depot, ect. but got a surprise this week. All the big box stores have removed it from inventory. The only place I could it was Advance Auto and they were removing it from their shelves. If you are going to need paint remover in the near future you better get it now.
  10. No body suggested a bumper jack, thank god
  11. IK have some jack stands made from old ford banjo rear ends that are quite sturdy but I still wouldn't trust my life to them.
  12. Sounds like it. I would sell him a new car.
  13. You might find what you need here. http://antiqueautotophardware.com/
  14. The museum is the "Beverly Hillbilly "
  15. Probably more parts then I find for my Moon. Looks very reasonable from the picture.
  16. It was Glytal and it was supposed to make the oil flow better. When I raced I did it but I am not sure it did anything. One old timer said it kept the engine from rusting. That sure didn't make sense.
  17. where there is a will there is a way and you found the way.
  18. One of our member had the material and sold it o me. Thanks for you input. Jan
  19. Nice looking truck. I wouldn't let it out of my sight.
  20. They used to make accessories which spread the leaves and then allowed you to lubricate. I have tried the Teflon strips and they look weird. Have not tried the chain lubricate but I will try it on my moon.
