    woodworking, fixing up the wayfarer
  1. Rims

    look at patchboy.com. check brass truck stems. I used the plastic beads for balancing with WWW radials and have same experience as Joe Lee.
  2. Building a Garage...Input Appreciated

    I second the 9' wide doors, minimum. I put 8' in mine, and regret it every time I use them.
  3. I have a '52 Dodge Wayfarer and I went to Lowes and got an 8 ft. piece of vinyl screen tight used to trim 4x4 porch posts.. I got the 3.5 in.wide section. You get base piece and snap on top piece. I trimmed it to fit and works fine. Doesn't look close to original, but covers rough rocker and looks somewhat finished. Cost about $12, so not a disaster if you don't like it. Bob
  4. where is this heading

    Radio news going to work this morning warned not to eat your turkey if it was spoiled, or if came out of a trash can or dumpster. Point of announcer reading it was exactly as PA pointed out.
  5. Unknown Parts - Any thoughts ???

    fourth picture looks like a crude side post battery cable clamp.
  6. Best work place pranks

    Had a good friend who drove an old beater Ford truck to work every day. He tack welded a box end wrench and a pair of vice grips to the top edge of the bed right behind the driver door and then waved back at everybody that honked, waved and pointed toe to tools.
  7. My son has started our Scarebird conversation

    See he busted a knuckle.....builds character and the vocabulary.
  8. WWW Tires - Tubes ??

    Oval valve stems available on Amazon for $18.00 for 5. Made by Milton Industries.
  9. WWW Tires - Tubes ??

    One tip I didn't mention is to clean off any of the blue protective coating on the bead of the tire before mounting. I did not and it bled out after the first 3 or 4 washing and in the rain. It goes away, but was a little messy for a bit. Bob
  10. WWW Tires - Tubes ??

    I had Coker www bias ply on my 52 Dodge on original rims. No tubes and no leaks. But they wore out quick, I have Diamondback radials on the same rims with no tubes and no leaks at all. Very happy with the Diamondbacks.
  11. Explorer rear end with disks

    I used the ECI dual pot master cylinder, part # EC444. Works great .
  12. Explorer rear end with disks

    I made a mistake in telling u I had disc conversion from Fat Man. It was Ply Do back in May, 2007. Ply Do is not in business any longer. I do have their instructions which may be of help to You. I apologize for the error.Scan0012.pdf
  13. Explorer rear end with disks

    I have a '52 Dodge with a '98 Explorer rear end. I am running original wheels with no problems. I have 215R75 15 tires. I am also running fatman front spindle/disc and air bags and have no clearance issues with tires hitting anything. Bob
  14. Explorer axle swap

    I have a 98 Explorer rear in my '52 dodge and I am running stock rims with no clearance problems. Same bolt pattern.
