We found a new camshaft grinder locally. He mostly does racing shafts and doesn't really need our business, but has the tooling to do some of the older ones for us. He does a really great job. One of our customers was really happy because they got an extra 5+ H.P. out of their 29 Chevy without compromising the timing.
Would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year and any other holidays I may be missing until I write again! Thank all of you for your patronage and hope you remember us when you do your next car.
That said, over the next few weeks I will be raising prices on most of the gaskets as my supplier Best Gasket has done it to me-- I haven't raised them for a while and most of the sets will be going up ~ 5% to reflect our cost changes. Still trying to keep it at a reasonable for most rate.
Got the warehouse extension done just in time for the weather to set in. Hope we get a good January thaw so we have a chance to move things around and get started on the next step of updating/insulating the older part of the warehouse before spring.
Wow! It's been a while since I posted! August 5th we managed to make it to the Van Der Brink auction for Bob Hensel's property and came home with several LOADs of stuff (facebook shows a few of the items we won.) So we spent that month bringing it all home and trying to find places to put it.
Good thing we already had an extension planned for our warehousing. We've spent the last three weeks in September helping the contractor out with the materials aquisitions and making sure everything is going right on it.
Almost Done!. Putting the roof on today. Once the land gets a final grade, sidewalls get their steel on and the doors go in, we will be ready to start moving things in. Just hoping everything fits!
Our apologies to anyone that went looking for us. I'm sure by now you got to the spot but no one was there. Bob's back went out, so the show did not happen. Happy to say he is on the mend again.
New products available! Fuel pump gasket kit for AC Model D. See fuel pump page in our online catalog.
We also now carry one more generic rope rear main seal for those of you with orphan cars or even tractors to go with the other two available. See the bottom of the page on Rear Main Seals in our online catalog. It also fits a Buick 455.
We went to an auction last week for the first time in a while and ended up with about 30 new old replacement stock speedometer cables that fit back into the thirties at least. We will be working on these this winter, trying to sort them out.
The pictures for the rear main seals mentioned below should now show up when you click on the part number. The mobile site is working fairly well but I have noticed there are some links that work for the site when on a computer, but not mobile. Such as the part at the top of each gasket page for the year/type of individual car that should pop you down the page so you can look at it right away. Looking to see what can be done about that. In the mean time, remember; I have tried to make the pages short enough that if you scroll down, you will be able to determine which set you need anyway.
I've been trying to put pictures of the 4 cylinder Willy/Jeep rear main seals and new pages for the 7.8MM electronic ignition wire in the lacquered cloth colors but so far have been unable to cipher the new format on how to do this. If you are interested in either of these products or anything else, please feel free to email us for more information.
This web site should now be mobile friendly. We have partnered with Duda.com to make the site compatible with most mobile devices. There is even a spot on the 1916-36 Chevrolet page where you can request a brochure again.
Our suppliers of reproduction parts have been raising prices on us again, so I have to pass it on to you, our customers, if I want to stay in business.
Prices are not all changed yet on the web site yet, but slowly getting there. I am trying to keep them as low as possible, so that I can pass as much savings to you as I can. This is slower than expected, so get your gasket sets while they are still lower in price.
Remember also, that we still have (usually) cheapest shipping rates among the various others out there that do this, although that pricing went up in January as well.
Our shopping cart that is powered by auctioninc.com has switched to a responsive cart that is mobile friendly so don't get freaked out if it doesn't look the same as it used to and doesn't quite match the feel of our website.This shopping cart leads to a PayPal related shopping cart which is completely secure and also allows for credit card transactions even if you don't have PayPal. Just look for the small print that says pay with debit or credit card or PayPal credit.
Our server switched us over to a different format for more security as well so our forms no longer work, but should have the rest of it up and running except maybe a few pictures.

I now have a few ignition parts up on the Ford other parts page--more to come.
I've revamped the spark plug wire and fittings page so that most of the wire we stock and all the fittings that we carry for the 7mm and 9mm are on the page.
Bob is also rebuilding/refurbishing some of the NOS/NORS fuel pumps that had the older diaphragms but were otherwise new we have as we have almost every diaphragm necessary to get the job done now. You will need to contact him directly for more information.
New Chevy reproduction parts are mostly in stock and ready to ship. Items that we can have drop shipped in most of the USA are the Billy Possum brand axle and propeller shafts . I now have the buttons set up in light green, and the correct shipping etc should be in place. Sorry no drop shipments for these two items to California because of the sales tax laws, and shipping for international sales may not go through correctly either. Which is why they are in light green so we can review the order before having the drop shipment done and in case our supplier happens to be on one of their tours.
We are still renting the warehouse in Marshfield.
I've got a page set up with a list for some of the distributor caps that I've found so far in our Marshfield warehouse. My interchange list for these along with a description of what they fit is a VERY long process. (What else is new?) So far it's just a list with some numbers, which has been useable for some of you. Click the link for distributor caps or the link at the online catalog page. We've been selling a number of the rarer ones and some of the numbers may be still up, but no longer here. It takes us a few days to physically check stock, so please send your request and we will get back to you as soon as we can. I thank you for your patience.
