  1. Bernbaum's as we know has a new owner these days, who seems like a good fellow. Have heard comments over time both pro and con about various AB products. I bought a windshield gasket from Steele for my P15,,,it was good. Also bought a cowl vent gasket from Steele......mine was correct and OK. Steele is not cheap. So there is no totally correct and accurate answer.
  2. Nice rides
  3. I've seen many of the style hubcap you're missing. However I don't have any at the moment - will try to watch at a big swap meet coming up in a couple weeks here in our area. There is one big hubcap vendor, and many individuals have piles of wheel covers as well.
  4. 1932 Desoto roadster there
  5. I did not even know about the museum in Fulton, MO as I never go to that area of the state. Thanks for the information. Maybe I can take a trip up that way some day. A list of what is on display (maybe not all at all times) Doctor's Buggy and Horse -- 1896 Ford Quadracycle -- 1902 Oldsmobile R Runabout -- 1903 Humberette -- 1907 REO Touring -- 1909 Black Auto Buggy -- 1909 Ford Model T Touring -- 1909 Lambert Model A1 -- 1910 Kelsey Motorette -- 1911 International Harvester Chain Drive Truck -- 1914 Woods Mobilette -- 1915 Studebaker Touring -- 1917 Ford Model T Roadster -- 1917 Oldsmobile Touring -- 1917 Scripps Booth Roadster -- 1919 Briscoe -- 1919 Chevrolet Roadster -- 1919 Dodge Brothers Roadster -- 1920 Chalmers Hardtop -- 1920 Ford Model T Center Door -- 1922 Ahrens Fox Pumper -- 1922 Dodge Brothers Touring -- 1922 Wills Sainte Claire -- 1924 Stanley Steamer -- 1926 Packard Limo -- 1926 Packard Touring -- 1926 Pierce Arrow 7 Passenger Touring -- 1926 Willys Knight Sedan -- 1927 Bugatti (VW Kit Car) -- 1929 Chevrolet Cabriolet -- 1929 Cord Cabriolet -- 1929 Rolls DH Coupe -- 1930 Ford Model A Coupe -- 1931 Ford Model A Roadster -- 1931 Marmon -- 1931 Rolls Royce Phantom II -- 1932 Chevrolet Confederate -- 1932 DeSoto CSC Roadster -- 1932 Ford Model 18 -- 1932 Franklin -- 1932 Hudson -- 1932 Hupmobile Roadster -- 1932 LaSalle -- 1932 Nash -- 1932 Pontiac Series 302 Coupe -- 1932 REO Royale Model 8-35 -- 1932 Willys-Knight Model 66D Sedan -- 1934 Model 40 Ford Roadster -- 1938 Buick Series 40 -- 1938 Dodge Panel Truck -- 1941 Lincoln Continental Mark I -- 1941 Packard Coupe -- 1947 American LaFrance Ladder Truck -- 1947 Diamond T Pickup -- 1947 Hudson Pickup -- 1950 Buick Special Series 40 -- 1952 Kaiser Manhattan -- 1952 Seagrave Pumper -- 1954 MG TF Midget -- 1955 Studebaker Speedster -- 1956 Lincoln Continental Mark II -- 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air Convertible -- 1957 Ford Thunderbird -- 1959 Ford Edsel -- 1959 Ford Skyliner Fairlane -- 1960 Chrysler Imperial -- 1963 Chevrolet Corvair -- 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray -- 1965 Chevrolet Corvair -- 1966 Ford Mustang Coupe -- 1968 Volkswagen Beetle -- 1969 Ford Fairlane 500 Convertible -- 1969 GM Chevrolet El Camino -- 1969 Lincoln Continental Mark III -- 1969 Mercedes Benz 280 SL -- 1970 AMC Javelin SST Fastback Coupe -- 1970 Cadillac Stretch Limo -- 1970 Chevrolet Z28 Camaro -- 1970 Dusenberg (VW kit car) -- 1973 International Harvester Travelall -- 1974 Cadillac Fleetwood El Dorado -- 1975 Honda Civic -- 1975 Renault Electric -- 1980 Mazda RX-7 -- 1981 Cadillac Fleetwood El Dorado Limo -- 1982 DeLorean Coupe -- 1985 Cadillac Seville -- 1986 Litestar Pulse GCRV -- 1987 Jaguar XJ6 Series III -- 1997
  6. There is now a new Route 66 car Museum in Springfield, MO. Located on College Street, just west of Kansas Avenue (on the west side of town). The owner converted the building from a manufacturing facility to a museum to house 70 to 75 cars. My bro in law and I went there a few days ago.....the man has purchased nice quality examples of the cars he included. There is other related memorabilia around the place plus a small gift shop area. Pretty nice. Admission is $13 per person as I recall....a couple bucks less for seniors. Link:
  7. On a 47 Plymouth front fender stainless trim, the threaded stud is "off center" to one side (up and down) , as I recall. I don't know if a Dodge used the same thing or not. If you don't use the correct clip, your trim is not in exactly the correct place. Hope that makes sense. Some of those trim clips that can be modified by the user may work OK. I found this pic in my online album.....I think this is the original, correct one for the front fender P15 stainless trim.
  8. Just looked at my Photobucket page......has a thing to click and read about the new changes. They appear to be picking on the free accounts the most. Leaving alone the paid accounts until Dec 31, 2018. They also tell you how to download pictures to save to your own computer. Will read it in more detail. Ahhh.....found that they now will offer three different paid plans.....the Plus 50 for $5.99 per month for storage but NO linking or 3rd party hosting. The Plus 100 plan for $9.99 per month which offers linking but not 3rd party hosting. 3rd party hosting is where you can embed or place a picture on another site like a forum. The Plus 500 plan is $39.99 per month for unlimited linking and 3rd party hosting. The company claims their income has decreased due to ad blocking by individuals and other things that lessen ad income plus tons of 3rd party hosting.
  9. Sounds pretty simple at this point. I just put in a new 6 volt battery this week....the old one had been in for about 3 1/2 years. The car gets a bit hard to start after sitting for two or three weeks and finally wore the old battery down. I have a master battery cutoff switch mounted on the firewall to cut out anything running through the battery while parked. Looks like I have the narrow fan belt.........
  10. Thanks Donald and Don. Are these alternators just connected by one wire?
  11. I have been thinking about replacing my P15 generator with a new 6 volt alternator. Looks like it should bolt right on. Not sure what if any wiring change is necessary......are two wires on the gen. Any one do this change and if so do you find it satisfactory? Thanks. Bob
  12. It may fit on top of the original bumper I see a hook on the back side......what would it attach to??
  13. Mark, I think the Hodro E Lectric Co in Florida sells a new vacuum cylinder......I believe those were used on Cadillacs as well as old Mopars. I don't know if water wells these days use any leather pump cups......but someone once said to check on those as possible substitutes for the item you are working with.
  14. I think they attach the whatchamacallit to the thingamajig........... Never seen that type before.
