    Electric fuel pump

    I use a 6volt one as a primer pump, I have been using it for a few years now and it has been very useful for quick and easy starts. I have a rocker switch under the dash and hold it for 5-10 seconds to get fuel up to the sometimes dry carb. caused by a hot Summer`s day or from a period of not using the car, my starter is very grateful for this. https://www.summitracing.com/parts/atx-e8011

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

    I Stood By Your Bed Last Night I stood by your bed last night, I came to have a peep. I could see that you were crying, You found it hard to sleep. I whined to you softly as you brushed away a tear, "It's me, I haven't left you, I'm well, I'm fine, I'm here." I was close to you at breakfast, I watched you pour the tea, You were thinking of the many times, your hands reached down to me. I was with you at the shops today, Your arms were getting sore. I longed to take your parcels, I wish I could do more. I was with you at my grave today, You tend it with such care. I want to reassure you, that I'm not lying there. I walked with you towards the house, as you fumbled for your key. I gently put my paw on you, I smiled and said "it's me." You looked so very tired, and sank into a chair. I tried so hard to let you know, that I was standing there. It's possible for me to be so near you everyday. To say to you with certainty, "I never went away." You sat there very quietly, then smiled, I think you knew, in the stillness of that evening, I was very close to you. The day is over... I smile and watch you yawning and say "good-night, God bless, I'll see you in the morning." And when the time is right for you to cross the brief divide, I'll rush across to greet you and we'll stand, side by side. I have so many things to show you, there is so much for you to see. Be patient, live your journey out ... then come home to be with me. ~Author Unknown

    Engine bogs when accelerating from a cruising speed.

    You can get a rebuilt vacuum advance unit for $69.50 from Andy Bernbaum, I did and it made a world of difference for my car. https://www.oldmoparts.com/parts-electrical.aspx

    There is good software called Blue Iris which lets you use wifi cameras from dozens of manufacturers and lets then all work together thru your computer and they have an app for your smartphone so you can view and control your cameras from anywhere. I have 14 cameras of various makes watching my homestead. http://blueirissoftware.com

    New Parts For My Plow Truck

    Well after about 750 miles my old girl threw 5 codes all related to a lean mixture, was starting to run a little rough occasionally and I was getting a raw gas smell that at times was quite strong. Upon a close examination with a strong flashlight it was discovered that my fuel rail had gone rotten and was leaking in one area. The part from Ford was over $400 and no longer available and I could not find one aftermarket. Ebay was the answer and I got one from a salvage yard in Colorodo that came complete with the injectors for $100 delivered. I was pretty lucky to find one as it was the only one available on ebay.

    Vintage Glovebox Goodie

    Looks like a gift from the dealership, very cool item. I believe they were a private entity until 1928 http://dodgemotorcar.com/history/riseandfall.php
