General Discussion / Motor wiper yoke
March 24, 2024, 01:22:06 PM
The yoke inside the wiper motor was broken (I think it is made of bakelite) so I did a 3D print of the material, The wiper motor ran very well after this replacement.
Does anyone have a problem with this part?
General Discussion / Propeller shaft 1929
February 18, 2024, 01:01:21 PM
I started the motor and saw that the propeller shaft was wobbling a bit. See attached movie.
Is there some marking on the shaft and parts for centering the shaft I have missed?

General Discussion / Engine not idling
August 20, 2023, 02:50:01 PM
Starting up the engine for the first time.
Full choke and 2 turns and the motor starts up. Oil pressure over 4.
When I close the choke to 50 % it still runs and I can increase the speed.

But when I try to close the choke the motor stops and will not idle.  Can it depend on e.g. air leakage? 

General Discussion / Clean vacuum fuel tank
August 17, 2023, 02:26:01 PM
Do you have some good tips to clean the brass and tank without destroying the brass or soldering or the zinc too much?
The brass float is broken with several broken parts as shown in the image
I think I can repair it with soldering.

General Discussion / Brass cup to carburetor
January 14, 2023, 01:01:14 PM

The brass cup is not so good maybe I can make it straight so the screw can seal properly- and I wonder if it's possible to buy it somewhere or a complete carburetor for 1929.
Carburetor for 1929 Carter needed
I have original one but the brass cup is very bad and the accerelaton adjustment screentrycken is missing.
General Discussion / Heating intake manifold
January 08, 2023, 03:08:57 PM
When I started the motor I notice there is lot of heat in the carburetor intake part, see image red circle.
Is that normal?
I was think if the gasket between the metal and exhaust should work like an isolator to minimize the heat?
Or maybe some other problems ?
General Discussion / Carburetor RT-08 1929
January 06, 2021, 12:59:42 PM
The small hole beside the acceleration assembly has no threading just a simple hole.
Shall it be some plug there (or screw)?

Where can I buy the leather sealing for the acceleration pump? (thecarburetorshop.com ?)

March 01, 2020, 11:57:23 AM
The Hood that i have have 3 sections of ventilations but

Does any have 3 sections? The car is from early 1929.
General Discussion / Running boards original 1929U

General Discussion / Radiator to 1929U
February 12, 2020, 03:46:08 PM
Is there anybody who has a radiator to sell or were to buy to 1929U 2 door sedan?
The radiator that was mounted was from 1930 and I think it will not fit to the body frame.
Is it the same radiator to 4 door/2 door / roadster /etc

General Discussion / Toe-in wheel alignment for 1929U
January 09, 2020, 03:07:10 PM
How much should the difference be rear and front of the wheel?
I read in the Chevrolet manual and they says 0 to 1/8"  taken from the metal rim.
If I take the distance in the center of the wheel (rear and front) and the rod have the shortest length I got 1"
General Discussion / Radiator mounting 1929U
November 17, 2019, 12:27:43 PM
Does anyone have any picture how the radiator is attached to the frame?
The hole in the frame looks strange..
The radiator that was with the car has a PA number.
Does this radiator fit to this car?
