    Auto Museum Day

    This weekend there was a car show and poker run to a few of the local historical sites. I did not attend but I am posting to say that while this site was published and flyer handed out, I passed THREE other local car shows that I had zero knowledge and passed alongside the road on my way to pick up a car. I often wonder if these smaller groups would communicate among themselves just what kind of combined show could be put together. All three had a myriad of makes of models while the Poker run was mainly a Mustang deal....maybe I just answered my own question.

    My Scarebird Install 1948 Dodge part II

    actually the finger pointing on similar/related post and keeping them in one thread is for the reader to be able to track what has been done/said and make his contribution productive and not just another mynah bird repeating what has been posted earlier......

    1952 Plymouth Suburban

    I would have thought for the money and time to spray, and later remove the paint, probably gum up on sand paper, that a nice car cover would have been the better choice...but then I do not know your housing area's right to privacy invasion either.

    1949 Plymouth Super Deluxe 4dr Sedan Parts

    ah...the room to store parts once removed, place to hide the car as it slowly will sell off part by part and the long lapse of time between each transaction....looks good on paper but wear thin fast in real life....most of the larger panel will not be bought due to the high cost of shipping given you find a buyer...bumpers and gravel pans may be largest piece worth removing and storing.

    My Scarebird Kit install and a few ? 1948 Dodge

    maybe a restricted vent hole...with the vent hole in the fill cap....very small one might I ad...the fluid above to reservoir level is by gravity destined to weep out...that is the very call for the residual along with proper pressure rating for disc verse the heavily spring force of the rear shoes. When installing a remote fill on my 54 stock master, I had to plug the vent hole so to retain fluid in the remote fill reservoir as the lid for the remote became the system vent...

    My Scarebird Kit install and a few ? 1948 Dodge

    even if for some reason you do not think they are needed....why did ma Mopar install the check valve into the original master that you stated needs be removed...not an argument mind you, just asking. Chrysler never was guilty of putting on parts not needed...

    My Scarebird Kit install and a few ? 1948 Dodge

    as the stock master is lower than the calipers...and you are retaining the rear drums...you now are faced with two systems, one outlet master...you will need to remove the internal check valve and install residual valves inline to your cylinders/calipers.....2lb for the disc and 10lb for the drums..

    50's MOPAR rim bolts vs studs

    lots of late model European cars still use the bolts over the stud and nut...it is generally accepted that the clean look of a finished bolt head has much more aesthetic appeal over a nut with exposed thread...then you have the nut and bolts folks who argue torque values...and then the gorilla grip mechanics that say stripping of studs is common....whereas the bolt will not but if you cross thread the bolt you got an expensive hub to replace....then folks argue that if you fit adapter and offset wheels and or fit the thicker alloy wheels then you have but to change the bolt length instead of pressing out studs and installing correct longer lengths.....pick your poison....lots to go around...on my German cars that use the bolts, the very wheel being stock, steel or alloy and or aftermarket...BLM (bolt length matters)

    The roomiest DeSoto ever built.

    since my bud sold his beach house...just not the same...could park at his place....do the beach thing...quick shower at his place and back in the car for home. His place had an outdoor shower facility and he need not even be there for me to access the beach or clean up afterwards. It is just a nasty feeling driving with salt film and sand on your bod....20+ years of living near the beach...before that, living among the beeches...

    I'd would love the beach if they got rid of that nasty salt water and all that sand.....

    WC Rear axle removal

    I have a travel kit tool box...it is a Craftsman brand with all pieces in their specific slot within the case.....it is great..I know at a glance if any tool is missing and look for it prior to moving from the scene of the repair....this has made me fond of the injection molded tool cases...kind of a built in anti-loss feature.

    Boiling fuel

    the entire makeup and formulation of gasoline along with the cutting with varying amounts of alcohol.....some very interesting reading on the internet explaining this and the winter/summer blends we go through annually.......

    Put My Dog Down Today...Been A Rough Day

    A loyal dog is often closer than any person with whom you have a relationship.....they become so much a part of your life. They ask for nothing and give you their all....Sorry for your loss. My little buddy is approaching ten this coming Christmas....an absolute fantastic companion. Seems to always agree with what I say...lol

    Retro fiting Indicators

    yes an engine with no gasket but an engine that head and jug should be "lapped" upon assembly.....I have found good and bad in about every car and car maker coming down the pike. My Volvo is the PV544...a 62 Sport with the B18 and dual SU's....I am very much considering making a 'business coupe' out of it...who needs a back seat when you can have a helluva trunk..!

    WC Rear axle removal

    I have the slide hammer tool here and could have sworn I have the axle foot attachment, but, if you can't put your hands on it when needed you really do not have much....lol It is a bit large for the box I have my accessories in....today's kits are nice as they have injection molded cases...nice...!!

    California Peaches

    Georgia is the Peach state but yet SC out produces them.....(well last time I checked they did) We have a huge packing facility about 15 miles from here...easy I-75 access and a big big attraction for those that pass through the area. Not sure of their crop this year, mine, frost got the peaches, I have but a handful on the trees. My nectarines bit the big one also but even with that still had quite a number to munch on......majority went to ruin...I had to run out of state and the rain hit, that seems to make them rot on the tree like almost overnight...just finished picking the few plums I got also. Apples, they doing good got apples and like the year before the tree is making a second bloom cycle...

    rental from the parts houses, well my local area, you pay for the tool up front, bring it back for a full refund...no cost involved to use...they ensure if you do not return it they can purchase another with no out of pocket on them. Initially this program is funded by the company as a incentive for you to purchase repair parts from them.

    Retro fiting Indicators

    Lets see, I own 15 British cars, 4 German cars...one Swedish car...I would think the British ones are standardized for a huge assortment of production cars and interchange thus allowing for the better pricing...I have to admit that in my two years in Germany, I never once saw one of these in operation on any car roaming the streets. As stated earlier, my car (1954 Morris Minor split window) was for export and thus fitted only with the blanking plates as the device was not intended for world wide operation. I have however seen a few that are on the cars as imported by a number of service folks returning from the UK and of course, later imports to fill the need the hobby has generated for these LBCs
