    I bought another old dodge !

    Got the wheels on but now the car won’t start. Ordered all new ignition components yesterday. Just going to replace coil,cap, rotor, points and condenser ... strange, considering that I drove it into my backyard just a few months ago. And when I took it for a drive before I parked back there it was running just fine . Is getting fuel, but doesn’t seem to be getting fire ... maybe the car did not like my choice of wheels and does not want to be seen in public ??? 😂😂😂

    I already have one car with hydraulics, I will not do that again. Airride- maybe. And that’s an awful big maybe. I just sold a bagged truck last year . I don’t want to make any mods to the frame really .... what’s there works .... these wheels are just laying in my basement ....

    I bought another old dodge !

    Got the brakes bled today .... thinking that nightmare is on the home stretch ..... the stock tires are dry rotted and not very safe looking . So for the meantime I think these are going to be the rolling stock , as the tires were replaced last summer .

    Has anyone ordered parts from rock auto?

    I love rock auto when I’m not in a super hurry for a part . Prices are always cheaper than any locate store . Plus you get a magnet !

    Well it happened! I'm done.

    I've noticed that while typing . I think it's the way Adsense is set up on these pages . I typed something referencing eBay and it made a link automatically .... Really dumb .... *edit .... Case in point .... See above auto inserted link.... Annoying ...

    I bought another old dodge !

    Got the hub tool today . Noticed an abnormal amount of lateral movement on one side . What's the correct end play ? I couldn't find any spec in the FSM , perhaps I overlooked it ??

    Bad Reproduction Fender Stone Guards on Ebay

    I want to know who the hell this mystery seller is ... I have been buying a lot on ebay for the 48 , and I don't want to get stuck with some sellers crap .... Can we just say the damn name already ??? I don't care if he's a member here or not , if he's selling garbage he needs to be outed as such so those of us "not in the know" don't get burned ... This has effectively stopped my e-buying for the dodge ....

    I bought another old dodge !

    I seem to remember reading someone about that in a book years ago .... Near railroad tracks or something ... on an unrelated note , we have the front brakes reassembled and hopefully adjusted correctly . But removing the rear drums is testing me . If I read the FSM correctly , the puller attaches to the lug studs and a slide hammer is used to pull the drum . We have pulled and pulled on both sides . The wheels rotate just fine so I know they are not frozen . They just won't pull off . And yes we removed the nut in the center .

    Brakes and drive it .... Maybe lower it a touch more .... Otherwise , just enjoy it until it gives out , then later model drivetrain ...

    Beautiful day for brake work ...... Now if I could find the link to the homemade brake shoe adjustment tool so I can slip the drums back on ....
