Help with 1927 Dodge Brothers Sedan

Recommended Posts

We were able to get the valves from Northwestern Auto Supply in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Thanks for the help.

We have it RUNNING!

Started it today for the first time. Lots of smoke, fumes, and BIG smiles. It hasn't run in 30+ years!

Test Drive Soon.

Brian,

We are using the "wrong" carby by rotating the lower half 180* so the float chamber clears the starter. This of course makes the air intake face away from the engine. (As shown in the second picture.)

Still looking for a "proper carb".

Can any of you guys help me with how to set the timing for a 27 dodge (A106449) - It has the starter/generator in one thing and I've just put in the magneto it is connected to the shaft connected to the water pump. Is there a top dead centre mark. And do I need to worry about timing retarding and advancing with revving etc.

I've asked you guys because you sound so clever, and have talked about a similar car.

Cheers

Shayne
