Re: Silent tappet block removal V12

mrpushbutton,

Great info. I would have thought the needle bearings went bad but it sounds like it is the rollers.

Thanks for the help. I will go soak them for a couple of weeks and see what I find. I can tell there is a lot of wear in them.

Wanted to trade Owens-Dyneto Stater

My '38 Twelve has an Owens-Dyneto starter that I would like to trade/swap/sell?? for an Autolite DN1389.

Re: Silent tappet block removal V12

Re: Silent tappet block removal V12

Thanks to the help of Flackmaster and Christian at Hershey, we determined the guides have to be removed first. More on that in the Project blog. It isn't that simple. Multi steps.

1938 Senior hood handle grooved

I am looking for a 1938 Senior hood handle.

I found one at Hershey and need a second.

It is shaped like a comma with grooves on the outer face.

Anyone have one?

Silent tappet block removal V12

Do the 3 silencer/rocker arm boxes have to have the valve guides removed to get them out?

My engine is still in the car and I have the front plate and rear valley plate still in place.

All I can say is man that non detergent oil is like the La Brea tar pits.

the other was identified as a '27 truck but it was a cut down 4 door. I think it was at Auburn recently.

Re: '38 Senior backup light

I got the light today. Very nice piece. I am trying to figure the mounting bracket. I am sure it would be simple to fabricate if I knew what one looked like. Anyone have a picture of one mounted on a car? I also assume it is mounted on the left(drivers) rear bumper bracket? Any help on these two sub...
