There is a new one with correct trumpet on ebay. It is listed as a '33-34 but it looks like an EE-3 to me.

1608 V12 Tires
#3

I have found 2 types of 8.25 x 16 tires to fit my 1608, Lester and BF Goodrich. It needs new shoes before it goes away.

Comparisons are as follows, Lester first

Ply 6 vs 8
WW width 5 3/8" vs 4 5/8"
Load/press 1750@34psi vs 2030@46psi
Tread width 6.5" vs 6"
O/A diameter 32" vs 32.43"

My concerns are what difference in ride/handling will I have between the two and any other observations?

Unfortunately, I have decided to discontinue this project, so it is available for sale.

Details to follow.

This is off a Pierce, but it shows the basic idea

I don't know your car, but it sounds like you might be missing the pivot pin. Does your car have screw on cap to retain the shifter? If so, you may be able to unscrew it and look at the ball of the shifter and see if there is a provision (hole) for a horizontal pin that would go from left to right.

Something has to limit the rotation of the shifter.

Great news. Since you can get to the valve ends you could try rotating the valve with some pliers. Just another thought
