  1. Extremely neat car. Welcome to the forum
  2. What a bargain! Would love to have it in my garage
  3. https://www.tfltruck.com/2019/08/petertoon-this-peterbilt-big-rig-pontoon-boat-is-ready-to-party/ https://www.carscoops.com/2018/07/peterbilt-truck-trades-road-water-becomes-pontoon-boat/ https://www.facebook.com/PeterbiltSales/posts/now-thats-a-pontoon-boat/1205244266285630/
  4. Who says there are no Real Men left? I am 68 and would not even attempt to do the work he does. Most likely all he has ever known.
  5. Sigh.... Darwinian selection at it's best Probably figured with the wheels on how far can it fall.
  6. These folks are near me. I haven't used them but just for information of another possible source: https://www.facebook.com/vintageautoradio/ https://www.vintageautoradio.com/
  7. I have had almost zero trouble using tubeless radials on my 52 with stock rims. A little loss over winter but almost never in driving season. Don't know if there is any difference between 49 and 52 wheels but just my experience.
  8. Do you change enough tires to make it worth while?
  9. Make sure that all the plug wires are fully inserted into the cap. If not spark could not make the jump all the time. I also discovered that when timing the engine unlike almost every other engine I ever did do not disconnect the vacuum advance. i did that because I always have on points ignition and had a similar problem to yours. I reread the manual and discovered no mention of removing the vacuum line. I redid the timing and the problem went away. Runs great at all speeds and loads. Small things are important.
  10. 15 years ago i bought a rebuilt direct from NAPA for $100.00. Talk about inflation!!!
  11. I couldn't justify the cost of replating the bumper guards on my 52 so I cleaned and painted them with a spray bomb. It is certainly good enough for driver quality.
  12. Here is a link to the successor organization. Maybe they can help you find out something. https://www.guidestar.org/profile/91-1220451 https://www.manta.com/c/mmf29qv/young-american-bowling-alliance Did not find after further looking much info after 2000 or so perhaps with the loss of interest in team bowling in recent years it might be gone. Still a place to start
