    new battery

    Check all of your no longer used AC adaptors for various electronic devices. If any have an output of 6 volts they work well for trickle chargers.

    another place to check is behind the valve covers for the drain holes to the crankcase. My engine was "tanked" but these holes were still plugged and this caused leakage when I started the engine.

    Gas Pedal Install - 1947 Dodge

    My gas pedal rubber broke on the end that connects to the rod through the fire wall. I super glued it back together 40,000 miles ago.
