  1. Glad this thread is back on track. I was starting to get a headache.
  2. Baling wire has got me home more than one time. Should be in every toolbox right beside the duct tape.😁
  3. Cleaned mine up when I had the dash out. It had years of old stiff black grease in it. Used the white lithium to re-grease. It made a noticeable difference. Prior to that I shot WD-40 down it, cranked it up and down and wiped the black off the metal strip each time. It did help loosen it up. I’ll pick up a replacement if I ever see one.
  4. I also wondered what happened to the classified for sale ads. didn't realize there was a charge to list.
  5. They will never fund your retirement so just help a fellow enthusiast out with a low price. Now if it's someone looking to resell at a profit that's another story. If the buyer needs them for his project, I'd go $10 to $20 each.
  6. Not to highjack Doug&Debs thread here but with all the fuel pump experience thought I might get an answer to a concern. I run only an electric pump. My old electric pump would build up pressure and stop but it was very noisy. When turned on, my new one runs quieter but runs all the time. Even if the engine is not running. I’ve monitored the carb for any signs of overflow and there is not. Seems it should also stop as pressure is built up. Any ideas?
  7. Just saved yourself a bunch of work. Now you can concentrate on your other projects with a clear conscience.
  8. Thanks Plymouth, knew you’d be on that. I’ve got a little vibration I’m trying to locate. Guess I’ll look to Ujoints next.
  9. I plan to put newer wheels on a 1936 Plymouth. Do the rivets need to be ground flush as in this picture for the wheels to set flat and run true?
  10. This brake drum appears to have the rivets ground off. What’s the purpose of this? Is it to allow newer rims to set flat against the drum. I’ve been wondering about this for some time as I intend to mount newer wheels on my 36 Plymouth.
  11. Welcome aboard. Very nice ride. Keep us posted on your road trips.

    Welcome aboard! Great looking car. I’ve taken dents out of the roof by lying in the seat and pushing my feet. Might try it.
  13. Great looking car. Glad you solved the problem. Enjoy the ride.
