Robert,

Look behind one of the kick panels. They often placed car numbers there. It may not say 20xx, but it will say XX. 14 or 17 apparently in your case.

My engine is A6000190 and my TPN is 411792 so things seem to be in the right orbit.

Mine is a 7 passenger touring sedan. 1134-20xx.

Bill

If you have Fastenal in your area and the shipping area, they have a 3rd party logistics branch that ships stuff like this. I had a 1933 Pierce Arrow rear axle shipped from California to Atlanta for $150. You have to drop it off at a Fastenal store and the shipping end and pick it up at one on the receiving end. They are more worried about size than weight.

Does anyone have an idea what the factory cast Iron heads are worth and is there any demand for them?

Thanks

Bill

16, I was thinking of my Pierce Arrow tires. I had the son in law along in case the procedure resulted in a lost time accident.

I finally got my sidemount out. Needed a 1 ton engine hoist and a lawyer son in law. It is the original 8.25 x 17 tire, but it had become wedged in the rubber in the wells after almost 50 years. It pulled the rubber out of the well when the tire came out.

Steve,

I haven't had any either and definitely not with covers.

Letting the air out kind of defeats the purpose of the spare I would think.

I don't know if you push down, rotate, beat with a tire iron, pull a secret lever???

Thanks for the effort.

Bill

I have been following this as I have a similar issue.

I had the same problem. I used the PB blaster and since I didn't have a key, I dusted off my lock picking skills and was able to get the lock off.

Now, is there a trick to getting the sidemount covers and tire out of the well. Yes, I understand that is pretty rudimentary, but I have learned to ask before trying to tear something apart.

Here is part of his email

Dear Bill,

You have made my day! I havenít seen that beautiful car(my love)in years. My wife and I bought her in somewhere around 1975 and I worked on it for several years. I sold it to a guy in Ridgecrest who seemed to want to keep it and restore it which was what I wanted to see if I had to give it up to anybody.

I really miss that old car. We used to load everyone up in it and go for a ride. It ran and rode great! Is it still in running condition? My wife and I were still in our twenties when we bought the car from a local guy who was a collector. That was over forty years ago.

Tolandis,

USPS came thru. I sent a letter to the address on the googled name and he emailed me today. He bought the car in his 20's over 40 years ago.

Thanks for the direction.

Bill
