  2. Sign in with Samsung Tablet

    Thank You Everybody ! With your help I was able to sign on , read and keep up with this GREAT wealth of information.
  3. The " Cleveland Style " U joints are straight forward, bend down locking tabs then use 7/16 box wrench to remove. Mark the relationship of driveshaft to rear end and transmission, otherwise you might get vibrations @. High Speeds. On my truck there was enough play / movement to slide the shaft clear enough to remove . A VERY easy job that can be done in one afternoon with all the parts there I ordered mine from Roberts Motors last year $ 150.00 + Shipping ordered on Monday , delivered by Wednesday afternoon,Back on the road Wednesday night
  4. 48-50 Grill Bars

    Hot Rod Tractor, I had been Looking for set of SS bars for my '50 B2B for MANY years. Found the top ones from a (new) friend he only charged me $20 each for the top two SS they were pretty beat up & missing mounting brackets. I searched all over the US for bottom bar, the prices range from $ 1.200-1,400 restored for all three on flea bay .A few gentlemen from this forum had been keeping an eye out for me as well. I found a set but the we're too beat up for the amount they were asking plus they wanted WAY more then the cost to ship them. Took me 5 years of looking many false leads ( even bought some Stainless Steel to try & reproduce it ) But I found a man in Vernon Ca ( bout 3 miles away ) Bob the Bumper Guy . I pulled in with my missing Bar he came out took one look at my truck and said " I got what you need" . We spent the next45 minutes digging thru piles of chrome & stainless steel trim body moulding. And ther they were, a complete set. They were bent and.some missiing mounting brackets , he wanted $500 for the set. I only wanted/needed the bottom one & not having $500 to mount to the front of my truck I said so sorry. No thanks. He came back and offered the LONG ONE to me for $200, I wanted to jump all over it , but I knew I did not have that much cash on me. I pulled out every cent I had emptied my pocket, I had $91.00 he looked at the money then my truck , He took all my money then ,Gave me $ 1.00 back. I did not expect him to break up his set ,He said they had been there 40 years He had forgotten about them. So the bars ARE out there just have to be Lucky , Full of Cash . Good Luck in your Quest , Mine only took 5 years. Rod
  5. My 1950 B2B has the same U Joints, they are called "Cleveland style ". Roberts Motors had them for $ 75.00 each last year when I ordered mine.

  7. Sign in with Samsung Tablet

    Hey all computer experts, Lucky me picked up a 7 year old Samsung Tablet last week. I was able to see this website but no where is there a place/location on the screen to " Sign In " that I can find. I have been able to sign in on the apple devices I have used , the windows computers seem to work no problems also. Any of the Android Experts out in the WWW have any ideas I can check? Thanks for any and all help, Rod
  8. 1950 B-2-D

    Great to see you are back on your project. Life happens in between.breaks.
  9. I am talking with a lady in Washington State who has the 3 stainless steel grill bars for my 1950 B2B for sale, I am missing the bottom longest bar however I do have the top two bars, So I am wondering if anybody is missing other bars who might want to go in with me on the extra bars? I have some pictures and they are not perfect but they look ok. Contact me and we can see what we can work out, Thanks, Rod

  11. So Cal Mopar Springflng SwapMeet

    Hey all, Just a quick short note to all Southern California Mopar Car and Truck Owners. The Bi Annual Mopar Swap Meet @ Woodley Park In San Fernando Valley will be on April 8 - 9 this year, As usual I will be there early to snag all the " good" deals and leave the scraps for everybody else. I have met a few Forum members there and hope to meet many others if they are in the area My truck is running and my plan is to drive it till I break it, so I have plenty of room to haul all the jewels I find home. Anybody want to meet up ? The best and central place is @ the Cement Restrooms in between the swap meet and car show. My cel # 323 332 8326.
  12. OD transmission oil

    Darn shame about that laynrubber, I just picked up 2 us gal @ $11.25 each ( with Auto Club discount ) from the NAPPA in So Cal. Even the guys behind the counter never heard of it. I had to show them in their own catalog then, I had to find it on the shelf ( that's why I bought 2).
