1922 Gray Dort misc. parts

Recommended Posts

As I don't know your experience/background, this may be belaboring the obvious:

The Dort seems to've been an "assembled" car,  and, assuming the Canadian Gray-Dort was also, you may be limiting tour search unnecessarily as to mechanical parts...

The chances are excellent that most, if not all, the mechanical parts were from "vendors" (outside suppliers who specialized in various mechanical parts) and were also used in various other makes of the period...the tricky part is identifying the various suppliers  and their own ID numbers, etc;---once you have that, old parts catalogs can sometimes be consulted to determine how many other makes the part/s you need went into, as well as older interchange manuals ..

I only have engine parts catalogs, and they list various 1923 US models with 4Cyl Lyc K and Hersh-Splmn 7000 motors, and a Falls 6Cyl T-8000 engine; Canadian models may not have the same parts as the US produced models, just to make it more difficult...

Let us know what specific  parts you're looking/praying for, and if you know which engine you have...

As above, my apologies if this old, unwelcome news.....

Thank you for that info . Yes it does have a Lycombing 4 cyl. engine . I could use a couple door latches and inside door cover plates , the Diesteel wheels , headlight rings , a good crown and pinion , a good set of front fenders . The roof bar assembly would also be nice as mine has rust thru issues . The front below rad cover would also be nice but that I can get it made . Other parts as well but those the most .

If you have any front fenders at all right now, it may be helpful to post photos of your old ones. We often see folks on the AACA Forums under the "What Is It?" sub-forum, asking for help identifying old used fenders. But most of us couldn't pick a Gray or Dort fender out of a pile, without having it already attached to the car. Indeed, right now there is a guy trying to ID a very nice used front fender, and so far none of us have been able to ID it. 

 

Just a suggestion...hoping it might help.

Do you have any detailed pictures of the wheels you are looking for? And size. Would a partial set of 26" Tuarc disc wheels be of any interest?

The only pictures that are available are from cars on the internet . I have only seen pictures with Dort and Gray Dort with these wheels . They are 20 inch .

Thank you . Spelling mistake . The tire size of the museum car is 31 X 4 . My guess is I need 31 inch rims not 20 inch as the size of my current tires are .

If your tire size is 31x4 then your rim size is 23" and the hole in the center of your tires will measure 23".
