  1. What an awesome amount of truck work that was done!!! I didn't get pictures posted yet, but I did save yet another old dodge truck. She was sitting next to a building of similar age that was set to be knocked down. Turns out she was gonna be crushed along with the old building. I pleaded with the owner and got him to sell it to me for 100 bucks and I would haul it out...I called my haul'n buddy and we saved her butt for whatever may come to pass. Maybe parts, maybe its own rebuild....the deal is, I can't stand to see the big ol trucks go down without a fight. I'll post pictures as soon as I can! 48D

    New chapter in my life.

    A 68 Dart would be perfect! More room than you think...its the body panels that are smaller not the interior so much. Plus it would fit in the semi...... 48D

    who knew baseball was so expensive!

    We complain....but yet the stadiums are full on the weekends....supply and demand I guess. I spent my money on a 70 inch screen TV...for sports of course. Full disclosure: I'm a lifetime A's fan (1972 to present)....cheapest seats in pro baseball. 48A's
  5. "So how do I tune this truck?" In general: do a normal tune-up for an internal combustion engine. Bring the ignition system together first. plug gap/ignition timing/breaker point gap/dwell/breaker arm tension...... Check float height: 5/8 inch Carb circuits: float level/idle rpm/idle circuit/accel-pump adjustment (power piston)/fast idle Check the unloader tension arm for the choke Use the nut plug over #6 to find top dead center and max vacuum pull. Depending on the year or use or preference its 2deg BTC or 0deg BTC. Minimum idle speed is 450 to 500 RPMS Resistor plugs need more gap: 0.035 vs non resistor @ 0.025 Your tappets need to be adjusted. Good to try that while running. Can be done not running. Intake 0.008 Exhaust 0.010 Double check float height for starvation Double check vacuum pull Double check the unloader Double check the valves for loose adjustments Double check the nut above #6 after your done checking vacuum and timing Check throttle connections Check choke connections let'er rip 48D P.S. Triple check the damn sparkplug wires for proper location.
  6. I don't know Paul.....the pictures you post....I wanna call your truck "Waldo" from now on...lol 48D
  7. I was gonna ask you that, Ed...! Wouldn't you remember if it was you?????.... "...was delivered by an old wrinkled man, not the nice post office girl.".... lol, well that describes about 98% of the guys posting on this site. :D 48D
  8. OK.....its the last days of May, so the International Work On Your Truck Day #7 is falling on June 2nd!!! No excuses Great Lakers area folks!!!(is that a thing?) the snow has GOT to be melted by now! The Five Rules: 1. Work on your truck. Not Mark's, but yours...unless you are Mark, then work on your truck buddy. 2. Report what you did to the Forum, not the girl at the post office, she doesn't care, she's just trying to get the junk mail sent out. 3. Post a picture of what you did. Its all good, sitting in it counts.....but at least hold a hammer or something. 4. Explain how you got the truck, what inspires you about it. 5. Try to share the days experience as soon as you can!!! Sharing is caring!!!.....Believe it or not, your story could inspire one of us to get back to it! Your story could help build another truck!!! Good luck!!!! Here comes Saturday!!! 48D

    1953 Dodge 'coupe' truck project

    I hear ya Dav....I just think, "If there was ever a guy who should paint..." It'd be you. You're a guy who cares about these old trucks and your eye for detail is outstanding! I realize it takes time to develop skills, but I believe you could fast track those skills better than anyone....so in the spirit of the American way of getting someone's resolve up...." I dare you...I double dog dare you!"...:D 48D
