  1. 1952 Dodge B3B

    I used Berrymans "chem- dip" for the carb body and blasted the linkage, valve plates, screws and lower body. If you take apart the "valve" plates be careful, those little screws are not your typical Home Depot screws I don't think I would blast the inside components.... to many small and sensitive areas to try and get it out of.... but that's just me.
  2. Weight of 230 ci inline 6

    man, I don't know what they weigh, but I have "man handled" a few and I would have guessed closer to the 400lb mark. but NOW when I tell the story it was closer to 600lbs you know...... " he said...... she said...... it was!"

    I am a fan of removing the inner fender, removing the tappet covers, get in there and get a good look at things just funning around seriously, do what Merle says first but if it doesn't run, I would remove the plugs and rotate the crank by hand to see if ALL the valves move... sometimes you can gently pop stuck valves down with the valve spring. if not pull the head, lets get this party started!
  4. remind me to give you a noogie when I see you
  5. 1952 Dodge B3B

    welcome indeed! nice truck. a trick I like to use on those rusted bolts when I can, is use a wire brush or steel wool or a scotch brite pad etc. on the exposed part of the bolt and then hit it with PB blaster. lots of times the PB will break them loose but then your fighting crud all the way off.
  6. LOL, that look was not from driving the truck....... she is not a fan of having her photo taken, let alone being recorded. side note, our hopes of bringing the truck are diminishing fast..... last year I borrow my neighbors trailer, for this year, I asked him back in November if I could use it again. He recently loaned it out (in January) and he doesn't know when it will be back. sigh, well, that won't happen again.... time to get my own (have a bigger trip in mind for next year)
  7. aww you caught me no they don't rub, I added a 1" spacer I made from an old brake rotors from a 2000 Mazda Protégé. cut out the centers drilled some 5/8" holes with 1" counter sink on both sides (for the "rim locks") replaced the wheel bolts (with longer ones) and prettied them up I knew that Mazda was good for something!
  8. I don't know how you folks do it..... be safe
  9. "On the Road Again" with Phoenix

    Paul, kind of reminds me of one In "my neck of the woods"
  10. tested the flag today, I think it will make from the motel in Lodi to the ranch
  11. anybody heard from JB Neal?

    Ok, call off the APB! I Heard from him.... all is right again.... carry on!
  12. I just got a "budget estimate" from a local big box tire chain last Friday on 8.25 x 20 for my HH. They told me if I wanted radials I'd have to have the centers removed on my rims and put on different rims something to do with the offset. I guess it might be possible, not for me...... they quoted me around $250. each for new Bias tire, flap and tube.
  13. Motel booked.... check, new tires..... check, have headlights and front turn signals (80% of the time LOL) check, working on the brake lights and rear turn signals. Extra carb, battery, dizzy.... check, check, check! I'm ready! oh yeah, JULIE!! ..... CHECK!
