Re: [HSS] vacume tank

Hey Chris Purdum, et al,

I have in my hand a reproduction aluminum one-piece mount for the steering

wheel of a 28 or 29 Hudson. It's beautiful!!! This is the large mount which

holds the steering wheel to the column. I had the repro made in Oregon.

These mounts have a tendency to crack and fall apart at really inopportune


Unlike the original, which was cast, this repro is one piece aluminum,

machined, polished and clear coated.

Anyone wanting one should contact Richard Morton, in Oregon, at


Chris!!! I need to mail this one to Jeff White, but if you want to see it

first, I'll send it to you in SLC; just gimme your mailing address.
