  1. Disconnect your battery cable. If it doesn't spark when you reattach it, , you do not have a ground problem. I'm not much more knowledgeable about electrical than you, but it seems to me if you have a ground problem, a fuse should blow or wires should be melting. JMHO
  2. update:,DMV end of the week. Request, I need a pair of headlight buckets. Been working steady, but body not what it was a year ago. Will spend July and August near Bath, Maine. Anyone close,, let's do lunch! Will finish the Suburban this fall.
  3. Ironically, the initiator of "Pillow Talk". A very interesting song in its time!
  4. I replaced all lines in my truck with steel lines. I did it all. Today I only use the new soft forning lines. All fittings are machine formed, for me it's so much easier and SAFER. JMHO.
  5. So then if the switch went to off off the wipers would stop at that place, park position then completes the cycle and the wipers "park" ! Interesting. TKS
  6. Mine is a single speed motor. Correctly wired it is always ready to run. When the swirch is in off position, the motor is in park position. Learned that today. Why in park position, what does that mean.
  7. Ken Combs. TKS Fount a T 5, will swap that in this winter..
  8. This is timely for me. TKS
  9. I like the diamond plate now that it's painted.
  10. The John Deere tractors were known for, what was termed, LARGE horse power. The gained that by not using any beveled gears. The top view of the engineering shows how they were designed. I grew up on a Model D.
  11. I did much as Rich has noted but I'm not using the mechanical pump, so the elec pump is off the IGN. I put a rubber mount between the pump and the frame and a safety shut off switch on the oil line. In an accident, ifvthe engine stops running, so does the pump.
  12. When I put disc brakes on my truck, I asked the same questions. the answer I took was to have a master cylinder that matched the newest component, so used a MC from a 98 Cherokee. Brakes are number one (1) priority for me. I've installed disc brakes on my B3B and my '53 Plymouth Suburban. Love the discs.used Rusty Hope both times.
  13. TKS for the pictorial. This only the 2nd one I've missed. I really enjoyed so many first time vehicles. I hope that when Tim turns this into a "Good Guys" show and charges admissions that uss first timers will get " honored " passes! LOL,
  14. This is an overdrive from WG Division. It's B-W. will it fit behind a 218 ?
  15. Went to look at a set of rims. Wrong bolt pattern, but the chrome luxury chrone rings were near prestine, so bought the four for $40.00. I also bought a five speed overdrive transmission (# 1352 192) for $125.00. That will be a great swap fit my B3B. Now to researh what to do with a T 85 C. - 1A. WG Division overdrive transmission I bought last fall or $25.00. Maybe put it in my "unrestored" slightly improved Suburban?
  16. Tim, I'm aware of the "condition" of the car and will not list it as restored, which it is not. But I want it to be a solid driver so have "fixed" or replaced most mechanical components. The buyer will know, up front, that very little exterior body work has been done. So, yes, " where is as is." PS, how much does "hemp" weigh?
  17. TKS, will give your test to the car. The springs are original and still on the car.
  18. 1. How do I determine the condition of my rear leaf springs? 2. If I need new springs, then which additional parts will be required? 3. Source of new 4. Is reconditioning an option? if I need new, that's a $500 expense, ouch!
  19. This morning I purchased a set of four original DODGE dog dish hubcaps for $60. Now I can put those on. The fire melted on of the original caps and cracked one to irreparable condition, so I sold the two good caps. Patience pays off.
  20. Robert, which transmission with the 3:73 in my B3B. I want a quieter engine at 65 and better hill towing.
  21. Love the tractor. A pre WWII IH M Farmal. A very popular tractor. Spokes even .
  22. The above would concern me. Mine is off the ign switch, switch off pump off. In a local parade, a VERY nice Olds 88 caught fire, they had firemen all along the route so they minimized the damage, if he had had in electric fuel pump pumping fuel ????
