    Almost 60 degrees here today.

    Had the dodge out and about today. Decided that with gas already up to $2.29, it was time to fill it up. Hope it doesn't go as high as they are predicting. Nevertheless it was a beautiful day for a drive.

    This morning I led a group from the Chester county antique car club to the 3Dog Gage in Boyertown, PA. They had an openhouse this morning. This museum/restoration is run by the Myers family out of Worchester PA. In this collection he has he 1932 Ford Hottrod that has won several major awards. Classic race cars, Classic hot rods from the 50 and is currently working on a Ford Cobra body. The tour was free and they have a very nice collection of cars. There is a car that is part of the Paul Newman racing cars. Also they had several Chrysler Hemi engines and a hotrod with a Chrysler Hemi that has a supercharger that is chain driven and not belt drive. The body of the cobra was on a rack and you could see the internal framework and how the aluminum body is attached by hammering the ends of the body around the steel frame work. All of local PA members missed a great museum. I have attached some pictures for your viewing please. if anyone want to see other photos I can send them to you

    Pulling Axles

    Well, Doug's suggestion about separating the differential and using some cord and gasket-maker to fix my leak didn't work. I couldn't pull it apart enough to even pull out the old gasket and clean the surface. Looks like I'll need to pull the axles to free up the carrier. I can't tell from the manual whether I'll have remove the backing plates, shoes, and lines. Can't I just pull the axles out a few inches to free up the carrier, put a new gasket in and then shove the axles back in and button it up?

    Paul; If it is legal or not wouldn't be the first question I would ask myself. Is there actually room for 4? and how safe would that be? Legal or not? I think you already know the answer. How would you feel if something nasty happened ? would be the question I asked myself. If it is just me that gets hurt....no big deal...but my loved ones? That is another story. For what it is worth.

    Update - 1950 Dodge

    So I thought I would post a video of our progress of the 1950 dodge truck. Turns out it had 3 stuck valves and it was 180 degrees out of time plus it needed a carb kit. This is all pretty straight forward repairs but an interesting note. We removed the head the bolts and according to our manual should be torqued once when cold and once when the engine is at full temp. It fired right up and we pulled it out of the shop. We noticed it had a lot of water vapor from the exhaust not smoke. When we did the second torque setting the water vapor went completely away. IMG_1264.MOV

    1953 Dodge 'coupe' truck project

    Good to see you back here IanT. It has been a while! Sorry I wasn't able to meet up with you in Toowoomba today. I'll be heading home from Kiama in the morning & hope to get back on to working on the Pop motor soon. Progress on the Pop truck has been good to date, but I need to chase up the Panel Beater again to see if I can get him to make a start!

    1953 Dodge 'coupe' truck project

    That would have been an interesting drive..i can only imagine how the Fargo will handle corrogations...I am thinking of a lot of bouncing around and shaking. Boonoo...sorry, but had to go to Whereis to find it. I see not far inland from Brunswick Heads where my sister-in-law lives at Ocean Shores. Must check it out next time I am up there.

    "Job - Rated" logo

    I received a LARGE file format of the logo a few months ago from a member here or on FB. I got it shrunk down, cleaned up and all pretty. Someday these will be lasered out of 1/4 SS and on TODD's mudflaps. Fruits of the labor below. If anyone wants the file let me know.

    Ok, John. You haven't been married long enough to earn a "job-rated" sign above your bed...

    Every summer while growing up I would go up and spend the summer at my Grandparents ranch. It was then in the '80's that I learned to drive in my Grandfathers pilothouse truck (somewhere around here I have a picture of my mother at 16 learning to drive in that same pilothouse truck). So the love started there. Sadly when my Grandperents passed, my uncle got all that stuff and promptly sold it. Fast forward 20 years and I was driving around a '52 Chevy pickup...I happened across someone one day who was driving an old Dodge pilothouse, and in talking to him found out that he didnt particularly like Dodges but loved Chevys. So what else could we do? We traded trucks. And a friendship was born. That old gent and I are still friends to this day.

    NEW DOOR LOCKS

    But almost all of them are stuck tight. A good soaking with a penetrant for a few days wouldn't hurt any. I say that in memory of the set screws I've ruined.

    I owned many pick-ups (Dodge, Ford, Chevy) in my bachelor years (1980s), but gave them up when I started a family. Now I'm able to indulge again (they're very handy for all my projects), and took a look around locally. I had a taste of sticker shock (prices can change in 25 years!), but finally found a local '48 pilot house with a straight body and rebuilt engine that I could afford (asking $3200., bought for $1900.). Probably got it because guys around here prefer a short bed Chevy to a long bed Dodge. Fine with me, I've long been aware of Dodge's superiority!

    Rick gave the correct answer, but let me elaborate on it. Please see below "fig.2" on the body manual: On my car the tiny door covering the hole where the set screw hides was partially covered by weather stripping. Without this picture in the body manual I would never found it.

    oh tim please do storys on Al and Gene. Ive seen no. 554 34 ford coupe flying down the track and have met Gene Mooneyham and Al Sharp. Both those good old boys didn't take **** from anyone, didn't kiss asses, didn't care about anything beyond eating drinking showering and likely shitting performance. Als hemi heads were just the best on the strip and Genes blower and ability to get off the line better than anyone just made for one incredible pair of true drag racing legends. Im on the other end of the country but Als legend was coast to coast. He also seemed like quite a business guy and likely the fenton pattern purchase and producing stuff like flathead ford v8 items helped pay for his other passions. if Al had designed the intake it would be top shelf stuff however just using using a pattern would be more to sell product with out the need to develop. cant blame him for that. I am sure if I had lived on the left coast I would know more about both. if you can put together blogs on them it sure would be fun to turn back the clock and learn more than the information that got passed the country on them during their campaign days. thanks tim. great stuff

    SUCESSFUL REAR AXLE SWAPS.

    I forgot to add, I used the drum explorer rear in mine and I'm very happy with it. Plenty of strength so far with the 360 and 5 speed.
