Re: installing demountable rims

Allan, any wheel. :) I do believe the rims should be a snug fit to the felloes with no gap, no matter what brand they are. I believe this has been discussed before. The four lugs should not support the weight of the car by themselves, if the lugs support the car, the rims aren't correct for the whee...

Re: evaluating wood spokes

Allan those felloes are original, they have not been modified. That being said, the spokes would be great for making some wheels for yard art, or ink pens. They're toast as for using them for usable wheels. Dave

Re: Motometer thermo replacement part

I too played with Mercury when I was a kid somewhere in the late '50's early '60's, it was fun stuff. It was just a small bit that would fit in the palm of my hand, probably explains a lot about me now. ;) Not sure where I got it, probably from some sort of switch or something. Had a lot of fun with...

Re: HELP ... Loose Steering

I've replaced a couple of 4to1 gear sets with 5to1 gear sets and they worked out great. I used original used 5to1 sets that had very minimal wear. I replaced the gear pins in the steering shafts with ones that I made from drill rod witch was .001 or .002 over sized. That made the pins fit nice and t...

Re: Proper torque for manifolds on 1920 roadster?

Or, tighten it up until it strips, then back off half of a turn. :roll: I know, it doesn't make sense, but that's one of the expressions that I grew up with from back in the early '50's, sort of like "jack up the radiator cap and roll another car under it", to describe a badly worn out (junk vehicle...

Re: Am I right to be upset? Children in old cars

Damn, I don't know how all of us kids survived back in the '50's/'70s riding in the back of pickups without seat belts, in the back of trucks hauling grain without seat belts, riding on top of a load of hay on a truck without seat belts, riding on tractors without seat belts, riding bicycles without...

Don, I am absolutely in awe of your talent and abilities. Please keep us updated on your progress. I have ADD and when I look at a project like that, all I can see is a bunch of stuff that I have no idea of how to put it all together, only what it should look like when it's done. Dave

Re: Generator issue

I have by no means any "pro" experience with anything electrical, BUT, I do know from past experience with motor driven welders (read generators), armatures should NOT be dressed down with sandpaper because the grit can cause problems. There are special "stones" that are made for this purpose, I've ...

Re: Lubricating A T

As for the lube/don't lube argument about the lube attracting grit, I've heard that same argument from back in the '60's from farmers regarding farm equipment. Trust me, ANY lube is far and away better than none, rust and dry parts will eat up components far faster than oily grit. Been there, done t...

Re: FS "Escutcheon" Plates

These are nice original pieces except for the repo one. The E brake floor trim does have some minor rust pitting, but could be made to look very nice with a bit of work or use as is for survivor or? Dave

Re: '19 Centerdoor restore... :)

Don, that wood sure looks like Cottonwood from here, and yes, a lot of pallets are made from it. We have a lot of it here in the MO. River bottom area (N.W. MO.), even had a sawmill here that made pallets from it, at least before the MO. River floods hit in March. Floods are still going on. Dave

Re: Caution - Rutting season has started

Ad far as I'm concerned, around here in NW. MO. there should be a bounty on Deer. In their infinite wisdom, the State has set limits on them for the hunters for many years because they are "Protected". In fact, they have become a huge hazard for travelers on our local highways. JMHO. Dave
