Re: 1928 1 ton horn wire Lou 01/30/23 09:13 PM
. The steering column has a "Mast Bushing" that has the horn wire connected to it. Be sure to use a grommet where the wire comes out of the steering column. I believe the Filling Station carries this part. . .

Chevelle Rear Shock Lower Bolt the toolman 01/30/23 06:08 PM
Looking for a rear shock anchor bolt for a 1966 Chevelle. It is a shoulder bolt that is 2 3/4" long. The threads are 1/2" fine thread. See pictures.
I am looking for either an NOS bolt or a good used original one or 2. The spacer is 9/16" thick if you have one, otherwise I will make the spacer on a lathe.

Re: a quick question on a '63 Biscayne Rusty 37 Master 01/30/23 03:43 PM
There is some indication that Chrysler trademarked or somehow restricted the use of the name “alternator” when they introduced them. So Chevy and Ford referred to them by “alternate” names. (Great pun!)

Ford called them AC generators and GM used the term Delcotron Generator in a lot of their literature.

Electrical - 6 volt Jump to new posts
Re: opie47 Mr87Monty 01/30/23 03:30 PM
I have a 41 with a 6v generator. With the lights on at idle the needle on the gauge does drop below the charge point to discharge and the lights do dim some. As soon as I give it a bit of gas there is no issue. Drove it all last year like this and no issue with a dead battery. If it is not keeping up at idle but is fine at all other times this may not be unexpected. Others will know belter with your year.

On a side note any electrical issue I have with a 6v check all grounds first. These car really need the grounds to be in great condition. Also keep in mind that the battery cables need to be larger than those of a modern car. 6v draws more amps to produce the same number of watts for the lights. Watts = Volts * Amps. For this reason the wire AWG needs to be thicker.

Radio questions Mr87Monty 01/30/23 03:17 PM
1941 Master Deluxe father son project. 6 volt.

My sons asked the following questions after we figured out it is not worth it for us to fix our radio other than for cosmetic purposes. Please keep in mind that this is not a restoration but is a do nothing that cannot be undone project.

Kids asked the following questions:
1. What is the last year that 6 volt radios were made? And when did Chevrolet stop putting them in their cars? Not going 12v.
2. Would any of these fit the existing holes in the dash? Rule that we make no changes that cannot be undone, unless prior owners already did them. Kids said it is period correct to them since if the radio in their car dies they would get one that fits and use that. Youngest pointed out I buy my parts from NAPA not GM for my Silverado. Hard to argue that one.
3. Radio would need to have FM available since there are only three AM channels left in our area.
4. Speaker can be hidden anywhere so that is not an issue.

I am still leaning towards an Bluetooth speaker but if they have an idea I will look into it and not take it off the list until a group concessions can be made.

Re: 27 Chevrolet tires Stovblt 01/30/23 03:13 PM
Hi 444johnr

I may be wrong but...
29/4.40 tires should be on a 21 inch rim.
Tires for 21 inch rims are available.
You should be able to use something like this:
https://www.lucasclassictires.com/440-450-21-LUCAS-Olympic-Tread-Blackwall-344p.htm
which you will find on the Lucas web site Dean referred you to above.

Hope that helps.:-)

Update:
Or are they on 20 inch rims??
Measure your rims where the inner diameter of the tire bead sits.
If they are 20 inch, you can use these:

Re: reverse idler bushing Lou 01/30/23 06:40 AM
. Over a decade ago, I needed counter shaft bushings for a 1937 three speed. They were priced over $30 but none were available. I went to the local ACE hardware and purchased two bushings for less than $6. I'm sure they cost more now. Copper plumbing pipe does not have impregnated graphite that bronze bushing do. .
. Happy motoring, . . Lou

Re: 32 carb Chipper 01/30/23 03:13 AM
The same Carter W-1 was used on passenger and 1/2 ton trucks. 212S was the early one (not recommended) 222S was the later one (much better). Other Carter W-1s can be used but are considered replacements.

Re: New Frame Choices and Preference old216 01/30/23 01:51 AM
Some folks use an S10 frame and drivetrain. There is a mounting kit to do that. If I remember correctly there is a short frame and a long frame. There are people over on the Stovebolt.com that have done this and other combinations and they can help you out.
