Thanks for the pics! I haven't done anything with mine yet but I will use this as a reference.

Maybe not. When I hear the word straps I'm thinking of something leather, like on a Model A door.  When I hear hinges I think of metal.

For what it's worth, my roadster does not have straps and when it was restored back in the '80s they weren't put on if they were supposed to be there.

When I had my discs done, there was a gentleman who made them and I think if you do a search you might be able to find it on this site. The material is like a thick conveyor belt material. A tractor supply type of store or someone who deals and antique tractors might have some options.

Thanks Chet. That looks like the way to go unless anyone else has any additional words of wisdom. Like I mentioned before, I'll know more when I get into it. I'll keep you all posted even though it may not be real soon since I'm doing some brake work on my 51 Dodge truck.

Thanks for the tip. I haven't taken it out yet to see exactly what I'm looking at, but you're right, that piece will have to be repaired or replaced if possible. I'll take a look at the bushings you're talking about and I'll have a better idea when I take this out and have a closer look.  Hoping some others might chime in as well who have repaired or fixed this before, or better yet may have a hinge to sell.

Hi all,

Had the roadster out for some exercise yesterday and when I got back and was going over the car, I noticed I have a crack in my upper, driver side door hinge. When the door is closed the alignment is fine but you can tell it needs to be fixed.  Don't know if the roadster hinges are the same as others but, does anyone have one available, or has anybody had to repair one on their car? I'll try to post a pic later but wanted to get this out.

I know this is an old topic, but just wanted to throw it out there again to see if anybody's come up with a replacement fan, preferably two blade, for safety reasons. Or as mentioned previously, is it an issue with our one piece fans?

The motor was rebuilt in the '80s when my Dad had it and I didn't know exactly what they did. Does it look like it has inserts in there as opposed to Babbitt?  I'm just guessing here out of curiosity.

Greetings,

Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving.  When checking my oil a couple weeks ago, my dipstick actually broke and I lost most of it in the pan...crazy.  After draining the oil and removing the pan,  I was able to get the broken pieces out and clean everything up.  I have a 30U block that I took a dipstick from. I don't believe this is correct, but it is working. Please see the pictures of the broken dipstick and the one that I just took out of the other block. On one side of the handle it says 6 quart capacity. Also, see the pictures I took of the crank from underneath.  What do you notice here?
