  1. Thanks for all the help. The good news is I also have the correct one and it’s in very good shape, thanks Reg. I wasn’t sure which one was correct but now I know so I’ll work on it to get it lined up an drill away. I’ll get pictures and update everyone.
  2. I am in the process of mounting the rams head hood ornament on my 1952 Pilot House Truck. There are no holes so I will have to drill them myself. Obviously I have only one chance to get it right. Because of the curvature oh the hood it's difficult to determine exactly where the holes go. Can anyone provide a measurement from the bottom lip of the hood center section to the center of the first hole? I have attached a picture of one I copied from ebay. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  3. That was my next question how you attached it to the top of the master cylinder. What type of nipple did you use? Is it a machine thread or pipe thread?
  4. I thought that linkage looked like George’s. He built the linkage for my dual carb setup.
  5. Is that a remote brake reservoir in the last picture?
  6. A real thing of beauty. Congts on a job well done.
  7. Nice to see someone so young working on one of these old Dodge trucks.
  8. I tried a search myself and couldn't find what I needed. I was looking for the thread on how to make the adapter plate.
  9. Welcome aboard. More pictures would be great. We all enjoy see the other trucks out there.
  10. Here is a picture of the Optima battery in my 1955 Thunderbird. I cut the top off and hollowed out the old battery. I inserted the new Optima battery on an angle so the posts were in opposite corners. Then I built a new top and you can see the results. These batteries spin my 292 like it was a 12V system.
  11. I'm not sure if this is the correct thread for this but I thought it was cool. Last week I was looking around to see about ordering new checks. I'm running out of my 1955 Thunderbird checks and the company I ordered them from originally is now out of business. Came across these and I copied it so I could post it here. In the process I forgot the site I found them on. This would be a good substitute for my T-bird checks.
  12. I hope everyone is having a very merry Christmas and happy holidays for those that don't understand what Christmas is truly all about.
  13. Wow. 45 minutes from me. Wish I had room and time. Love the fan on the steering column.
  14. John, How did you get the outside brazing so smooth?
