Parts and stuff...

I am looking for a front seat assembly for a 31 DeVaux. I am thinking the 30 and 31 Durant front seat COULD be close to the same. All the brackets and fittings under the seat can be duplicated from examples from a car in Michigan.

Is anyone in the Michigan area driving to Modesto? I have 3 DeVaux wheels (from Myron) that can go to the man in LA.
Thanks, Gary

Hi Gary
I had Greg King owner of Kenyon Machine shop here below my house in San Diego
custom make a mold and then pour me a number of 1" x 1/2" round travelers( original ones were pop metal that all crumbled so Greg mixed a harder matl looks like Alum ) under the seat that has a 1/4" very course wide tread screw shaft that screws threw it with a nub on each side that holds it in the Durant steel mech to pull the seat forward and back right in the middle almost on the floor under the front seats of most 30 & 31 Durant cars that worked real slick, using the Durant factory stock wide thread shaft very well made shaft ( can use factory one over) , that had a short ratchet handle hanging down to move the seat fore & aft. As a long time clubber and helping me a bunch you can have a extra one of these that I have here in stock. I can cell phone u a picture of it if you like.
