Re: Wanted

Hi Jack...

The fuel pump is the same as used on Farmall F-12 or F-14 antique tractors.
Check with some antique tractor parts suppliers. rebuild kits also available from them.

Re: Wanted

That's USD as well Frank.

Don't know if you can convince Ed Pringlemeir of Guelph to part with some of your parts on this 1930 614 photo'd at the DMAC meet 2013. Pulls and spears are on it.

Re: Wanted

Doesn't Neil Butters reproduce the spears and the pull knobs?(nbutters@eagle.ca) The spears are so fragile, that if you don't break them on removal the chromer will ruin them, then you'll probably have to glue them on as the mounting tabs will be buggered. The knobs usually don't fare too well being rechromed as the detail is lost. I'll check my spares for the other parts you need. Ross

Re: Wanted

Jack .. meant to mention on the fuel pump. I don't know if you have the pump and are just looking for the diaphragm. When I got the 32 614 the fuel pump was in two pieces on the passenger side floor, where it had been for ages, six top bolts missing and the diaphragm. Steve Mercier gave me a pump off a 407 he picked up in Stirling that had the casting broke off one fastening side. No a 407 pump will not work on the 614 because of arm position, rest of the guts are ffine, switch arms and you are ok.

That gave me the 6 bolts etc and the center threaded shaft / washers for the diaphragm. EBay in England had NOS AC fuel pump first aid repair kits BD-2 for U and F types. I got two of them from the lad for total cost of $23. The diaphragms had riveted on center shafts, so drilled off the knurled side which allowed me to use the correct threaded shaft / washers on the diaphragm. The kit also has various gaskets and bits all of which are useless except the two gaskets we need to fasten the pump to the block and the cover under pump.

Just saying to watch eBay for 6 bolt diaphragms if that's all you need. eBay 382269289423 has the diaphragm and one gasket lower right but pricy when you compare Franks prices and doesn't ship to Can.

Re: Wanted

Thanks Norm,
I rebuilt the pump on my car and it is okay now but I just wanted to have a spare pump or at least some parts to repair it. I can make gaskets and the diaphragm but it would be nice to have spare valves , springs etc.

Re: Wanted

Jack- Checking through my stash of parts I found; engine crank handle--it is just a "S" shaped piece of rod with a pin in the end to engage the crank jaw. Don't know if it is Durant but it looks like the one I have for my car. You are not going to start your car with these,maybe useful for setting timing(the once in your life you do that). I also have one door sill trim piece. It is aluminum, 30 3/8 inch long with a very slight slant at the forward end. It even has a small part number of 60787 stamped on it. I think that would make it for the right hand front door sill. It has a intricate pattern stamped in it with the 30-31 Durant crest stamped in the middle-it is very detailed. It is damaged by scuff marks and split part way through (which probably could be welded). As you may know these have not been reproduced(and probably never will be). If you want these for $20.00. Problem is shipping to Canada which might be expensive? Let me know-Ross

Re: Wanted

Hi Ross,
I would like to buy the trim piece and crank , and hopefully the shipping isn't too expensive , but that's life in this country. By the way I won't be trying to start my car with the crank , it's -19 degrees here.
Please let me know the total cost and when you will be sending them.
Thanks,
Jack

Re: Wanted

Jack- I found some more parts; a rear view mirror bracket. Like the one on my car-a triangle shaped bracket that screws into the header board. It doesn't have the ball on the end or the mirror, a generator-Autolite model GAL4330-8K no pulley on the end or retaining nut and the threads on the end have been totally buggered up, but I'm pretty sure a good shop could get this fixed, and a windshield wiper control arm. This is the sheet metal piece that goes over the header wood and has the little control arm hanging down. I have a wiper that i can throw in but it is backward from our cars. looks exactly the same as mine but has the control lever coming out the wrong side. Our closed cars should have a Trico KCX4. The generator would add to the shipping costs since it is so heavy. But $30.00 for everthing. Let me know. Ross

Re: Wanted

Hi Ross,
Yes , I'll take all the parts you mentioned , but my generator has an extended shaft to drive the water pump and the model is GAL 4130 5K . If your gen. has the extended shaft , I'll take it also.
Thanks,
Jack

Re: Wanted

I note on the AEA cards the 1930 - 31 407 uses both GAL 4130 and GAL 4330. I don't have a 1930 614 card to see if both used as well, probably though.
The 1931 Durant's 611, 612, 614, 618, 619 use the GAL 4330. De Vaux shows GAL 4330. 1933 Ace also used the GAL 4330.

Re: Wanted

Jack_ This does have the extended shaft on the rear that attaches to the flexible connection to the H2O pump. Check www.willysdistriburors.com for reproductions of the ID tag. He will also stamp them with whatever number you want for a nominal fee. He can also do the other Autolite components(starter and distributor).Rick Botti found this guy. I'll be getting everything boxed up this week Ross

Re: Wanted

Jack- I finally sent those parts today by FedEx. They should arrive wednesday the 31st by noon. I had to ship in two boxes since the sill trim was so long(it's in a mailing tube). The cost was $132.97 shipping plus $10.00 supplies, then the cost of the parts. Let me know if I can help further. Tracking nos. are, 789460814811 and 789460722229. Ross

Re: Wanted

Jack-Yeah that's good. Sorry about the shipping costs . I guess NAFTA doesn't apply to old Durant parts. I threw in the wiper motor and bracket in case you wanted to see if you could make it work. As I said it's backwards(otherwise everything looks the same on my car). The odd looking mechanical lever is a genuine part. The actual wiper bracket should have a small "S" shaped lever that controls opening and closing the wiper valve. As previously stated the correct wiper is a Trico KCX-4. The number was sometimes painted on the body, but gets rubbed off over time.I guess the best thing is to take that one I sent you to swap meet and go through that huge box of motors that some guy brings every year! good luck.
