Welcome to the forums, I also own a Model A Hupmobile. Every thing on your Hupp is rare but can be found if you search long enough. You can always use an aftermarket gauge until you find a correct one.

Mark,  your Hupmobile did  not  come  with  a temperature gauge  in  the  cabin. It  set on  the  top  of  the  radiator. Hupp first started  using a  temperature gauge in  the  cabin  on the  dash in the 1931 model L. If  you  are not  a member  of  the  Hupp  club,  all the  questions  you  have  could  be  answered  for  you  by the  tec.  guy on  you  Hupp  model for  FREE. We  have members that  specialize in  all the  Hupp  models and  are  a  great source  information. May be  one  of  our  members may  know what to  use  for  a torque value for  the  nut.

Hello Mark, thank you for the photos, I wish my Hupmobile looked nice like yours. It is the same (4 door). Mine needs some woodwork, painting, and full upholstery.The chrome is good and It is equipped with disc wheels. It does run and has been driven off road.

Hello!

Nice looking Hupp! what about steel wheels, are they original? I was read Floyd Clymer`s historical catalog of 1929 cars and I found steel wheels Hupmobile eight, seven passenger sedan M. Maybe somebody has exchange wood wheels to steel??

Wood  was  standard,  disc was  optional. Kelsey Hayes made a special wood wheel that I  have  on my  1928 Model  A  Hupp  roadster. but  not  able to  show  a pic. The    Model M  Hupp had  optional wire wheels in  1928. The 1929 Model  A Hupp roadster and  town sedan had  wire  wheels as  optional The  Models, H  and U , S and L had  wire wheels as  optional in 1930.1931 and  1932.  Maybe I  missed some  but  that  will  tell  you  what  you  want  to  know.

Mark, 

Beautiful Hupmobile! I also encourage you to join the Hupp club. Wonderful people, with lots of knowledge about these terrific cars. I am a member, and I have an older, 1923 Hupp touring car. Hope to meet you someday. ------Jim W
