Re: Recommendations for Tires

Checked into my tires...split rim. Purchased a few spoon tools on Amazon and got the metal (chrome) disc piece off without a problem and minimal damage to the paint on the wheels.
I ordered a pair of the Bedfords from Lucas Tire only to have my order cancelled a few days later and an email saying they are out of stock with no resupply date.

Recommendations for Tires

Hi All,
I am getting ready to purchase a new set of 7.00-19 tires for a 1930 roadster. Wanted to ask for anyone experiences/recommendations....Lester?, Firestone?, Bedford?...all seem to be in the same price range...which are the best? Also, I am looking at purchasing from Lucas Classic Tire. Are there any other places that specialize in classic tires and have good prices?
Thank you!
Rich

What year manifold are you looking for? I have a 29-31 Super 8 exhaust manifold a can sell. Not sure of the fitment on other years/model of Super 8s....

Ok, thanks...thats what I'll do. The pump is all mechanical/gear driven, correct? I was looking around for an exploded view of the pump, but am unable to locate it. Anyone have a copy they can post of it? Just want to familiarize myself with the part...
Thanks,
Rich

Oil Pump - 1930 Super 8

Hi all...looking for some advice/recommendations with respect to the oil pump. I removed the oil pan this weekend and gave it a good cleaning...was full of years of sludge...really glad a dropped it and cleaned all that stuff out. Before reinstalling the pan, is there anything that I need to do to the oil pump while I have the pan dropped? I wouldn't mind taking the pump off and cleaning it, but not sure how big a deal that is or if it is needed. The screen right below the metal sleeve looks clean, doesn't have any holes or obstructions. If I do need to remove the pump, are there any issues or tips with respect to its removal?
Thank you in advance as always, as I would not be able to have learned so much about my car without the expertise located on this site and the people that share their knowledge here.
Thanks,
Rich

This may be OBE by now, but I just took the DL51 off my 1930. It works fine and is in good shape. For sale, pics are located in the for sale section of this site.
Not sure if it will work on a 1932, it looks identical.

Re: Head gasket question…do I need to use a sealant?

I ended up buying the permatex copper spray…says it is specifically for head and exhaust gaskets. You spray it on both sides of the gasket…let it dry and install the gasket.
