    Package Thief vs. Glitter Bomb Trap

    unfortunately this package theft from the porch is more than just a trend, many making money off it daily reselling the stolen property......the stink bomb gives it a bit of personal touch....overkill, yeah....but if you got the resources and cash to throw around....get to the basement and start designing.....I give this one a big THUMBS UP

    512 cid C series on Dakota chassis- build thread

    Now, if you had gone with Lignum Vitae, you would be at the polishing stage using the woods own natural oil to polish up that shine....

    Ed, do you have a photo of an original factory installed T/S switch for the P15? and if not factory...the one supplied to the dealership?

    Rebuild Stock Steering Box or replace with Vega style?

    Vega steering is probably the only piece that did not break or fall off the car during operation....old saying I love when you see one of these in rod form.....No matter what you do to it, its still a Vega....

    Large job rated truck

    money maker....can see it now...riding around pumping in all the cooking oil from the restaurants and making bio-diesel for fun and profit....or you could convert it to a vacuum tanker and clean out septic tanks...but that is a crappy idea....

    Patina for sure

    good trip up and back....no rain, was able to by-pass an accident on the interstate and keep moving on the parallel secondary road then back on the slab and on to home....number of thumbs up, honks and gas station greetings that is common when pulling an old car.....always makes for a fun time.

    ignition switch question

    49 is correct......

    slightly warped 304ss exhaust pipe flange

    the doughnut needs an inner metal liner and should have ball flanges on the both sides when nutted in place...this unit should have a liner and standard exhaust flange gasket with the metal squish ring...

    D-24 Gauge Cluster Gasket Template

    I find that the majority of all gauge gaskets are shot.....have made my share...hopefully your template will help someone down the road.....thanks for taking the time to post this for everyone.

    Patina for sure

    you missed the single fact I stated in my response above....they bring me joy having them...I could care less what it may or may not do for them.....as an added note, none will be barn finds as they are neither lost or abandoned...

    Patina for sure

    tomorrow I retrieve another vehicle to place on site not that anyone is concerned or counting......and yes, my barn is full and locked....!!! how many I leave behind is no concern to me now or down the road...two train of thoughts here, first they are mine and they bring me happiness having them....second, the kids will learn first hand what it is like to have to pick up behind someone...it was murder getting them to clean their rooms.....payback is a mother...they want their inheritance...they going to work for it...

    Enjoyable Christmas decorations.

    someone done poured the sole out of that choir.....

    Interesting photos I have run across.

    I am not sure what they take for tin in Cali-land....but here on the left coast we call that canvas/sail cloth and in reality many will call that cat eagle-chow......

    The death of wire nuts.

    I think I will stick with the wire nuts for overall simplicity, ease to tuck into tight places etc etc...different sizes is not a problem to me in the wire nut selection...think these will be restrictive with tight applications...there is NEVER a use for these in automotive field except maybe mock up and test, after that, solder and sleeve your connections...

    Another starter question??

    that sir depends on a couple of factors.....have done a few of these but my approach is to repurpose factory and stay away from the generic aftermarket units. I can make recommendation, I can show a few pictures but would ask you PM me your e-mail address....

    Patina for sure

    I agree......patina and barn find are words that cause me to close the page and move along....barn find would only interest me if I should find a barn available for me to store a few cars in for awhile...I much rather hear the word "survivor" in describing a vehicle in USED condition...

    Patina for sure

    oh no...next thing you know you will be crossing over to the dark side...….plenty of room over here but lots of folks will not be happy....lol

    slightly warped 304ss exhaust pipe flange

    chuck that sucker up in a vice...get a nice large flat mill bastard file and proceed to work it level.....be quick and easy and the only way shy of a milling action that will assure a degree of being flat....

    Another starter question??

    no....was talking in terms of the early telephone party lines and we were on the Lafayette exchange....we be hanging out in middle of Georgia...

    Another starter question??

    been a long time since I have worked with any Bendix off a starter....I have reset these before install but recall it was not that fun......I worked a Bendix with issues a bit back that the man had connected the brush plate wrong and was running backwards...not sure if it was damaged before or after his hands got hold of it..
  24. Plymouthy Adams

    Another starter question??

    follow the reset direction in the book....it is as I read an understood that the motor when started will throw the Bendix back to its idle state...the hand feeling of the gear mesh is to ensure that it is not going to clash when tightening the mounting bolts

    Interesting photos I have run across.

    well, mums does look like she is oblivious and content, the little girl has a death grip onto her hand bars and looks poised to leap at any second...the boy's expression makes me wonder if dad did not eat a load of beans the night before...pops completely missed the engineering mark for leg extension and steering wheel height....but that is just my take on the scene
