Re: Motor Paint color ?

The nuts were cadmium or zinc I think, but not painted.

I mix my own engine paint to get a almost exact match out of the color book.

Re: Cracked Head

I would be concerned about a block crack but you won't really know until the head comes off. It depends how the crack was caused, if water froze inside or not.

Re: Rumble Seat - HELP

They probably had the right size and rubber that was softer. Wish they made it right today.

Re: Running Poorly

Perhaps not enough gas was getting to the engine because of the leak? Was there a puddle (though gas does evaporate quickly)?

Replating Upper and Lower Plates?

After rebuilding some distributors and collecting some parts, I have some upper and lower plates where the plating just isn't there anymore. I have seen people selling replated upper plates and have...

Re: Generator vs Alternator

Didn't realize anyone did it at all, much less many options.

Re: Generator vs Alternator

Agreed. The thing I always wonder about is why no one has tried to make an alternator that looks like the stock generator. Many other old cars have this upgrade available.

Re: High compression head vs cooling

More heat in the engine but the cooling system does run cooler fron what I have read.

Re: Early GAV Seat Problem

I will give the paper clip a try. Don't have one of those locking screwdrivers, can't say I have ever seen one.

Re: Wishbone/Trans Connection

I would take it off to check for wear. But before you take it off I would have a new one on hand because if you decide to put the rubber back on, the old one will probably tear.

Re: Shift Tower & shift lever

New shifting forks are junk. If there is wear, you weld them back up and mill them.

Re: spark off of the distributor.

My advice to you is just rebuild the thing with new bushings, new shafts, new plates, new points, and maybe a new cam. It is pretty easy and we are here to help. No need to spend money on a new one.

Re: spark off of the distributor.

Is your distributor painted on the lower part that goes into the head? Might be cause of bad grounding.

Re: spark off of the distributor.

Is your spark rod shorting out on a spark plug? Happened to me with a repro one that somebody threw on my car and bent too far.

If not that, your spark should not be going out, so something is...

Should I buy it?

In my search for a closed car, I came across an original 1930 Murray built Town Sedan. Seller is a younger guy who has bought over $3000 worth of parts (tires, brake drums, wiring, weatherstripping)....
