    Misses at higher RPM

    I carry a spare module just in case.

    Point taken. 😀 There are a lot of these sorts of components that are subject to lack of QC. I chose to get rid of the lot. As a side note the cap and rotor stay nice and clean after the Pertronix upgrade. Pretty much a win-win as far as I am concerned. Jeff

    Early on I had issues with replacement point sets. Not spring related........ but quality of the contacts themselves. Saw a far amount of material transfer on 3 different sets I tried. I found this unacceptable and put in a Pertronix module with a matched coil. I drive my truck every day and it never fails to run well with this set up. Jeff

    38 RC pickup, carb issue

    Amen!!!! MMO works and works well. I put about 4 oz. every other tank full on my daily driver 52 B-3-C.

    Intake/exhaust manifold removel

    If it were mine I would try soaking the gasket joint with a penetrating solution. Kerosene even. Then put a couple nuts back on loose to keep it from falling and start tapping with a rubber mallet or dead blow hammer. Hope this helps, Jeff

    Water pump. Maybe

    So true. I still can't get over how much crud I got out of my trucks cooling system. And it sat for at least 20 years. Jeff

    Could have a blockage somewhere or a bad thermostat?

    I bought a surplus HumVee scissor jack and carry it in my truck. Super HD!

    Gas tank & synchromesh

    One addition to what Merle said is that even the later B series 4 speeds only had syncros in 3rd and 4th gears.

    Opinion. 49 pilot house

    Could be? Maybe a different rear axle was swapped in?

    Opinion. 49 pilot house

    It seems to me that it would be a one ton based on the photos. I doubt very much those rear wheels would fit on a 3/4 ton axle.
