    Ignition Key & Door Key

    In my sig line you will find an option to remedy when the set screw needs to be removed.

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

    sorry to hear that. As others have said, they are not pets, they are family members, fur babies and true companions. I haven't had a dog for decades, we are not cat people (yikes?) but they claw (or chew) their way into your heart and will always be truly missed. Hang in there bud.

    spark plugs

    does it rub off? Getting too hot?
  4. well I did all I could to get it off...my fear is/was damaging the engine whacking on it too hard since it's on the crank. They might actually have a trick or two, or at least parts when something breaks.

    The history and legal laws regarding rear license plate light

    problem is, how often does one go to the back of their vehicle, while it's running, with the lights on, at night? Average Joe driver never does.
  6. I hear ya..the flywheel on my 4 wheeler would NOT come off, I eventually gave up and figured I'd take it in to the local shop where if they break it I won't pay for it.

    Brake and clutch pedal binding

    I can take a pic tonight if no one else has.
  11. did you make the adapter? I would not know as 1 ton's have a different rear axle set up.
  12. heat and or a coupla wacks from a deadblow?
  13. as promised...pictures...it rained pretty much the whole time I was out, I maybe had a half hour tops at one point that I wasn't getting drizzled on at least. Ed hooked me up with some extensions, and Tim is going to at some point as well, but I figured having more options is better than having none! I also dug thru the trucks from last visit and pulled some parts to have for others: Model 61 heater, speedo, accessory pod, some more knobs (yes, Brent I owe ya pics soon), some B1 horn button parts and a fuel pump. They had this sitting there looking for a new home, $1100. But he's got some BAD cancer.
  14. I went picking for the fender extensions and picked up a power wagon grill. Pictures to follow.
  15. I'll see if my friend I am travelling with is up to a visit. he might be interested in the zeppelin history of your city.
