  2. 230 Flathead

    I have a extra 230 that I could probably part with. I will be driving to Kansas next week...
  3. What year and model of Plymouth was this?

    One day while driving a 1933 Cadillac, I heard a loud "Bang" while applying the brakes. The pedal went to the floor as I idled between cars while running a red light. I was terrified! Needless to say, I don't care for mechanical brakes either. I don't blame you one bit! The pivot to the front brake rods broke.... It's dragging on the ground really didn't aid in stopping me. It seemed to somehow affect the leverage to the rears, they really didn't seem to be useful.
  4. .picked up 2 engines this week.

    Red Rams are cute little Hemi's.... What a great find!
  5. What year and model of Plymouth was this?

    The 1937-1938 trucks are just as expensive... Hard to find good ones.
  6. Stupid Is as Stupid Does

    I hate to admit this, but you are not alone! My wife called me into the house after I did a tune up. I closed the hood, and forgot about it. The next morning I was perplexed as to why it wouldn't start so I could get to work... I finished everything except installing the spark plug wires... Sigh. Quick fix at least! LOL. Six wires are easy to install back, so I was fine and made it to work on time. It seems that family life = Distractions, so yeah, start to finish can be a challenge.
  7. What year and model of Plymouth was this?

    Too bad it's small block chebbied! Boo! I have saved much worse cars. And yes, I can spell Chevrolet, I just like to poke fun at this terrible trend.
  8. What year and model of Plymouth was this?

    LOL... Boy ain't that the truth!

  10. Me and the Meadowbrook

    What a great day, and you got to see some great cars and meet some down to earth people too! Very cool! I take my oldest son to car shows also.
  11. Unnamed car, help

    I seen something similar in Poway. Strange looking cars for sure. I never really felt like asking the guy about it...
  12. Damaged piston

    I hope that they sell you a piston, I am bummed that this happened to you.
  13. Tom Langdon Closing Shop

    That is a relief! I think that I will save up and buy a set soon...
  14. Hood Does Not Open All The Way

    Whenever I work on my friends 1949 Coronet, I have to be really cautious, as I have "scalped" my bald head a time or two. I wish that they opened more also, being tall brings on this dilemma.
  15. Hairline crack near exhaust valve seat

    Definitely a new exhaust seat required. If the crack is wider than the new replacement seat, you can use a Lock-in-Stich kit from Turlock, CA. There are some you tube videos that show this repair being performed. I have personally used this product with complete success.
