  1. Now back to our regular scheduled programming.
  2. What effect do you get from your Johnson grass? Southern prices these days? πŸ™ƒ The stuff I grow gets rave reviews and I grow it at home, no artificial lights or anything unnatural! πŸ˜ŽπŸ€‘πŸ˜΅ Hope ya know I'm kidding! DJ
  3. well if the Caddy frame is junk he can do a frame and engine swap with a Chrysler! 😍 DJ
  4. Very, very desirable car. 😎 Buy it if your wallet is fat enough-- Will you take payments?? 😏 DJ
  5. 2 White mules vintage unknown. Agree with Ed on the car, 1935. DJ
  6. I hope that it does eliminate the tube hence the reason for the electric. I have never done this to a YF carb myself it just dawned on me that there are many electric choke conversions available for many older carbs and just did a web search and came up with the one posted above. There may be more available from different sources but I did not look any further once I found this one. DJ
  7. James is it fleet week in SF? Wonder if they are flying Under the Golden Gate Bridge even if they are not supposed to anymore- they were scaring the crap out of drivers On the bridge!! 😱 DJ
  8. How about a changeover for that new YF type carb to a electric choke? Carb at $60+ and new choke at $30, still under a Hundred bill, not too bad! Choke changeover is priced about 1/2-2/3 cost of the carb but not terrible Those adjustable main jet carbs avail as mentioned from Daytona Carb and Mikes Carburetor are nice but at $340 a bit much for me. DJ
  9. See post #3 above -the ohms range is on that picture. Good luck- your sender seems to be good! DJ
  10. OK, I think you are saying TSP is just the brand name on the bottle and that is one of their other products? Then no problemo. Reason I asked was the old generic tsp acts as a acid I think and primarily used on house walls to prep. Other uses for the stuff?? I certainly never considered it compatible with auto paint formulas.? Given any thought about what you are going to ask for the Suburban when it goes up for sale? Looking around lately for a friend it seems that prices while higher than in the past they are all over the place in No. Cal.it seems to me. DJ
  11. Paul, I don't think I have ever seen anyone use TSP as a wax and oils degreaser on a car before putting paint (or primer) on one. Is that what you have used for the small amount of paint you have applied where it readily shows?? Anyone else use that?? Might be I spent too much time in my own garage! πŸ₯Ί DJ
  12. Moparpro (mike) appears that he had some drums made for Plymouths but they appears one piece not drum and separate hub. Too bad as some drums from Plymouths seem to fit some Dodge trucks (1/2t&3/4t) fronts only, but the hubs are different according to a quick look at a interchange manual. https://www.ebay.com/itm/1955-1956-PLYMOUTH-BRAND-NEW-BRAKE-DRUMS-RIGHT-SIDE-AND-LEFT-SIDE-INCLUDED/183710011362?hash=item2ac5f84fe2:g:xmcAAOSwYMldSyF~
  13. I debated about using to or too, looked for where I wrote down their usage rules but they are lost so I winged it- heck I had a 50/50 chance, wrong! I do not gamble with money for that reason! πŸ˜‰ I do sometimes go barefoot in my garage (my shop) but I'm careful where I walk and do no work- seldom do that anyway but that's another story. ☺️ DJ
  14. Then it May be safe to work on it barefoot to! πŸ˜„πŸ˜£ DJ
  15. Need a trip to beautiful San Louis Obispo and get a Ca. project car ?
