  1. seriously, I can't even make this stuff up https://portland.craigslist.org/mlt/hab/d/1952-dodge-pick-up-truck-was/6647376981.html you would think they would use a more popular brand of vehicle to use if they wanted a larger audience

    what are the rules cruise in/ car shows

    LOL, thanks i/we appreciate and look forward to that every year! sooo true, only with parent supervision though ( i don't want them thinking they can climb over just any car at the event) hey, here are a couple kids in our truck from the 2018 Clements event (driver = ggdad1951, navigation = 48dodger)

    Timing

    On the distributor? Did you loosen both the minor and major adjustment bolts? I am a fan of using a vacuum gauge also.

    WOW what a wake up call. that is a great point Greg! just about everything I went to last year was around $20. but it supported something. I was more interested in just hanging out with guys. I should be supporting my community and if I have fun doing it that should be what it is about. that will be on my criteria from now on. i'll bet that will take care of the "snubbing" thanks everyone for the support and encouragement! I knew something wasn't right

    Rich I appreciate your view on entering regardless, I hadn't thought of it like that. never made it to the money part, it was park then check in lol, yeah I usually try not to get too excited over this stuff I was just surprised. I will admit in the back of my mind I kept thinking they have heard of me and know how many pancakes I can put away yeah i'll bet you haven't, I've seen photos of your truck you have a NICE truck! most the shows I go to are local to me and I thought "low key"
  6. I’m admitting, I don’t have the best looking rides or the most popular. I go to the car shows to BS with others and maybe get a dash plaque ….. I don’t want awards or anything…. I am just there to chill and represent the “B” series here locally. With that said, I did spend the last few weeks cleaning up the B4D, wet sanded the rust, took off the running boards and cleaned them up etc. mainly because people keep telling me at the shows I should, so I did. Went to a car show Sunday in a nearby town of 2100 people at the airport. I was ½ hr early, folks that were there were wiping down their cars and preparing for the day. I pulled down the landing strip and there was a guy directing cars to park on the grass. As I pulled near him he ignored me and parked three other cars that were behind me. Confused I pulled over and waited off to the side. Did he not see me? Did he have a preference who parks where? is this for cars only? HMMMM. I waited for a few moments then I got out, asked him “is there was more parking” he looked over at my truck and replied, “are you going to enter THAT?” I said “I don’t know, are there dash plaques?” he said no, “just trophies” I told him to have a nice day and went home and took Julie out to breakfast. Yesterday I cleaned up “Rob” thinking next year I should take him to this event….. the exhaust points at the ground! LOL
  7. How in the heck did this get on the Houston CL? I have been watching this one. I thought it was in Redmond Oregon.... 541 is an Oregon area code. 😋

    My son's 'new' car (OT)

    Very cool Robin I like the color scheme but, I call BS! No way you have an 18yr old son! AND the sun was shining? 😋

    1 Ton rear hubs

    I packed mine with bearing grease before reassembly. I figured they are like the front and need to be packed periodically. I woud suspect the second part of your statement to be true..... but I am not 100% sure, sorry.

    Bell Housing Removal

    I usually check here first also CC.... I am not a mechanic and I have found a few who will "dumb it down" for me and it builds my confidence. 😋 the manual doesn't always cover my scenario. good luck and report back!

    New grill for the 50

    Looks great Shane! Hate to say it but even with the name on it, i still have people calling our flatbed an "international" (and we have the three name badges on the front....) hopefuly folks in your area are smarter, LOL

    Eddie (re) Introduction

    Work bench height

    i have a couple, my "general" work bench is at 45", my welding bench is at 42"..... i recently discovered and my "portable" bench being at 36" was a good height to work over a transmission

    What paint to use on wheel rims?

    I went to the local west coast big box tire shop (Les Schwab) in January, they charged me $50. per rim (locking rims) to power coat. they offered a few different colors
