Our 1929 Series 65 Roadster came to us as "in good running condition". That was a joke! We now have the car up and running after rebuilding the radiator, carburetor, replacing wiring, correcting bad wiring, cleaning gas tank, putting in spark plugs ... etc etc! Now that the car is running, we can fine tune items. The car has wood spokes. Owners manual says that the tubes were 5.50 x 18 . We are facing two challenges .. how to get the flat tube off of the split rim. How do we unfasten the rim? Seems to have a fasterner in place. Second, the tires say Goodyear 6.00-18 6 ply. Can't find this in any searches of vintages tires. And can't figure out what size tubes would fit in these?
Got our baby up and running. Now time for the fine-tuning. Realized that the previous owner had glued the arrow for the gas gauge in place. Was wondering why this always read as 1/2 tank of gas! I don't know if the gauge was broken or the wiring but would like to find a replacement model. Now that the tank is full, we also realized that the gas will pour back out when we are going up a hill ... like even our driveway. So we are also trying to find a replacement or new gas cap. Thanks!
