There is an excellent article on Trico wiper vacuum motors in the January 2017 issue of Skinned Knuckles.

Yes, I did receive two good ones.  I hope to have some Reproductions by this summer.  I need to take down this request.
Thanks.

I posted a picture of a radiator emblem I rechromed using a hobby kit.  It is on the off-site photo page.  Unfortunately the emblem's curve di not match my radiator shell, it was too flat and looke bad on the shell, so I din't use it.

(I could not figure out how to take the picture so that the file size would be small enough to load here.)

There is a fellow that makes the original style hose clamps any size you want for a very reasonable price.

Are you sure the connecting rod is bad, or does it just need to be rebattited?
I have some connecting rods for a 29, not sure if they are the same.

I wonder if they were nickle plated and not chrome plated.

      I am sure you are correct. I found another emblem and tried replating it with a hobby kit, but it had fine scratches on the brass that made the chrome Look not so good.  When I mounted it I discovered it was not curved enough and the upper and lower portions stuck out from the shell.  So I polished the brass on my original emblem and went with that for now.

My 29U appears to be some type of copper alloy, maybe brass. I polished it and looks good against the chrome shell.
On mine I had a chip out of the blue which was very hard to match. I never really could get it right, but not very noticeable.
I think my car was built in May of 1929.

OK. I will look and see how many I have and which ones are good enough.

Iíll check and see how many good ones I have. Some were prototypes that may not be good enough.

My 29U was mounted like Tomís but with a Klaxon 14 horn,  I eventually found a Klaxon 12 and a bracket for the water inlet.

Chet,
I had some reproduced a few years ago. My intent was to make them available at cost to members. When the manufacturer ( a local trophy shop) got the design right, I asked them to make a batch, but they told me they lost the digital file.  Anyway I have a few of them. You can have one if you want, but you have to drill the two holes yourself. The prototypes were approved by the Club as correct.
