    I bought Optima. Have no 2nd thoughts or problems about it at all.

    My First Car -- P15 1947 Plymouth Deluxe

    You're welcome. Sometimes one needs to think outside the box and use what's on hand. lol

    I have 3 heavy duty ratchet straps. The first I use to compress the spring by wrapping around the top and lower a arm. Crank it down tight. Then I wrap one around the spring and tighten. Loosen everything and it just fell out. If you are going to reuse the same springs I'd just leave the strap around them in place. Of course you would need 3 straps then. Mine are 2 1/2" wide and quite thick.

    seat adjuster

    My 47 Dodge took two each side. 1 large 1 small. Don't remember where I got the size but I believe it was on this site somewhere. Maybe Tech section.

    Clock not working: any usual suspects?

    Like I said I had a professional redo it and he had it twice.

    Clock not working: any usual suspects?

    I set it in the same position on the bench as it sits in the car but I'll take a look at the hands. Tks

    Clock not working: any usual suspects?

    I had the clock in my 47 Dodge professionally fixed. It will run for over 24 hours on a bench hooked to a battery. As soon as I put it in the car it lasts maybe 20 minutes and quits. Even if just sitting. I have a good ground and good amps/volts to the clock. I don't understand it.

    1947 Vin Number location.

    The number is also stamped on the left rear frame outboard usually on the rear wheel arch. Some take a wire brushing to find.

    Nick ask any collage/tech schools around if they take cars to work on. Most that have an automotive or welding class do and only charge for parts. No labor fee.

    Little detailing

    That's the way I resize as well. Pretty easy.
