    remembrance tour "Battle of the Bulge" (right in my back yard)

    his and this from many others service is highly appreciated! thanks
  5. We took old Betty for a tour around the monuments and special places of the battle of the Bulge where so many young guys fought (and died...)for our freedom. You see pictures of the Mardasson museum, Barriere Hinck, Bois Jacques with the foxholes, Bastogne barracks... hope you enjoy them; greetings from Belgium. (This was our first big trip from Flanders to Bastogne 200 miles in an ambient temperature of 35°C. The car ran fine, overheating problems gone thanks to a total flush of the engine and a new water distribution pipe. I have installed an electronic thermometer and it never exceeded 80°C, even when driving up the hills)I am happy....)

    renovating window channels and rubbers

    off course I have checked catalogues and websites but, to be honest my first goal is to find out if these trimmings are special for the plymouths or more or less "standard". If I can find a source here in Europe, that would be much cheaper for me. If it is special for mopar, I will have no chance of finding this here and that is where the above mentioned companies come in sight...

    influence of high octane...?

    good discussion... anyway from what I have learned so far... Our old engines are not designed for the higher octane fuels and they can't handle these very good. So the moral... "keep it cheap and the octane low".... :-)

    influence of high octane...?

    since I have installed an electric fuel pump next to the mechanical pump it starts right away. I used to have the same issues, even with a new carb. I turn the key now, let the electric one pump for two seconds and start.

    influence of high octane...?

    hello friends, I know that a lot has been written on the "octane" subject, but I would like to throw something in this group. I noticed that the Cranbrook was ideling a little "rough"... I checked the plugs and wires but couldn't detect anything wrong. The car starts and runs fine. I took it for a ride and instead of putting 98 octane fuel in, I switched to 95 and filled up the tank. I guess the tank was half empty or half full if you like, before I started to fill her up. After driving some 160km (100miles) I felt that the engine was running much smoother and the rough idling was gone. Now the question of one million, is this sudden change of behavior due to a different octane or just coincidence...?

    aftermarket radio and speaker installation

    one of the major problems seem to be that the car is positive ground; All available modern "vintage style" radios are neg grounded. These units can't handle 6V on the housing... I guess I will end up with a bluetooth module connected to an amplifier and with a remote control so that I can put everything in a plastic box under the front seat....
