    Lost A Good Man

    Very Sad hearing of both Patty and Bob passing. Much too soon as the saying goes. Bob was a very good Man, very community minded and played Santa for many years. Cancer and heart disease he did battle. Bob and I shared a real kinship in our chosen Professions, that outsiders would never understand. Bob and Patty were very generous and giving people, Patty was a School Bus monitor for years in there home county. Bob was especially generous to my Son and sent him many little gifts when he was a little guy. God bless, you Mr and Mrs Drown you are sadly missed folks. So you folks in Neversink keep on the lookout for the " Wayback Machine" it may be driven again from the cosmos. Bobs posts and pics were both entertaining and fun. His usual line was I " just had to"... There were those that openly chastised Bob for his numerous picture threads, but many of us encouraged him to keep on posting. Rest In Peace my friend, i just get the feeling Bob has seen this thread.

    1954 Fargo Clutch Linkage

    My sentiments exactly. If the linkage cannot throwout bearing and if linkage is all installed correctly it leads me to believe something else is going on. Pics of the inside of my bell minus throwout bearing and holder.
  3. Slant 6s were installed in cars and trucks for many years 1959- 87. As well as the Industrial applications for farm and industry. Here is a new use for a 1971 Slant 6 ot of a 71 California Cuda. Attached is an A833 trans. 2200 lb car, should launch well. Needs driveshaft, clutch throwout setup and rad/ electric fan and she could be test driven.

    Hydro flooded town

    So you trimmed your " toe nails" and have assimilated into society to build cars instead of being a scary legend? I agree on the findings if remains or of any bei g captured or killed. Certainly no shortage of stories or sightings in No Cal, Oregon, Washington, and BC. Even Manitoba has had sitings. I will say this though huge tracts of heavily forested lands up here could hide remains of any species from discovery indefinitely...

    The Extremely Versatile Universal Slant 6

    Yes have seen that very video. And many more. Even in a relatively stock form, this car would be peppy.

    Exciting 1933 Dodge project!

    Hey all, should have made my " queries " on this thread. What is the Status of this build? Has there been any updates or details of where this engine build wound up?

    Flathead 6 for 1933 Dodge to drive Peking to Paris

    Wonderful side trip guys, but do either of you have any idea what happened to this project and proposed road trip? Montana Dodge Boyz were to build the engine, what happened in this case. Did the 230 engine ever get built? Be interesting to find out where this eventually went....

    Door Lettering Anybody?

    Hi all, A good friend painted my 55 Fargo door lettering. I much rather like This, it's a nice touch. Been absent for a while figured some of y'all needed a break...lol Tragedy in our community had a severe impact in my household it had a rather negative effect on us all, so did not feel like doing much of anything for a while..
  15. Hey all, made the step towards switching back to OEM steel rims and I have just acquired 4 "Fargo" hubcaps. I have 2- 5 X 15 rims and 3- 4 1/2 X 15 rims. Now I need at fairly good sized tires, right now I am running P 235 75 15s, most you Pilothouse owners no doubt run 16s, and better choice in taller skinnier tires for that wheel size too. What can work on these small rims widths with today's modern tires. I cannot use P 205 75 15s, they would look ridiculous on my truck....

    1954 Fargo Clutch Linkage

    Allan is the throwout bracket in mine the same position as yours? You need more travel correct? Was this always the case? Is the release bearing and retainer in the correct position on the throwout fork?

    Cracked Rt Rear Engine Mount Bracket

    Seems like the right tool is in the picture for an old " toilet"...👏
  19. Good Day All, Just for curiosity, as well as statistical analysis, thought it might be interesting to conduct a "Poll" and to create this thread on our Membership Alumni. Over the years so many members have come and gone, some sold their Vintage Mopars, others have moved on to other passions, some unfortunately have passed on, and just might be enjoying this Website from the cosmos. This web forum has certainly, " come of age" and does have near 2 decades of providing first class info and dialogue on our Mopar passions, the webpage format has change 2 to 3 times, and is nice modernized style, many other such web forums have not, and they are very antiquated. So please all members who so wish, tell us your story, when and why you have joined, how this has enriched your Mopar Hobby, and what you may have done differently in hindsight? Tell us why you may not be as active, or what those reasons might be now after years of membership? The idea for this "topic", has been on my mind for a while, so thought maybe the time is correct to visit the topic... Enjoy Ladies and Gentlemen......

    My Saturday Blasphemous Acts

    Hey all, installed a hi perf race SBC and Racing glide trans into a 77 Pinto wagon. This engine dynoed 600 hp car runs high 10s to low 11s. It was quite easy as everything was taken put not long ago. Car has full cage, nitrous, beefy frame alts and suspension. It will be racing at Fargo ND in 2 weeks. Car belongs to Wifes son. Next blasphemous act was trying to shoe horn my 225 slant 6 into a beater 1979 RX7. I knew ahead of time the current oil pan needs to be swapped to a rear sump. It will fit and nice and snug. What a nive piece of engineering as far as frame and construction on this car. Not sure where this is going yet.

    My Saturday Blasphemous Acts

    UPDATE. I have a 225 slant 6 and A833 out of a California 1971 Cuda, this was not super difficult, but required some firewall cutting, all is welded back in and engine and trans mounted in. Drivehsaft, clutch and hydraulic throwout , is the next frontier, not sure how just yet. I am not overly enthused by this project, but will follow through, but Heart is not quite in it, as it should...

    Paint - Base/Clear or Single Stage?

    Reg, Centari is great paint, and does hold up well. Buddy of mine painted a 56 Chev 25 years ago in Centari black and white, still looks good, and this car sits outside year round. Here is a car I just painted for my son, BASF Limco Low VOC Acrylic Enamel Metallic....
