    Me and the Meadowbrook

    Hey fellas got my car running again (it was a faulty fuel pump) and I wanted to start a new thread and leave my engine rebuild thread as something separate. In this thread I'm going to post pics of me and my family's trips/shows/gatherings and anything else fun that we do with the car. Tonight we went out for a cruise over to a neighboring town. It was sunny and 70s here today with hardly a cloud. Perfect evening for a drive. Mostly I drove just 40mph because that's what felt good Its so much fun to drive the old Dodge; our new cars simply have no soul. There's a bunch of shows and gatherings coming up soon around here, we hope to hit all of them. Here's some pics from today: I guess only the first pic is from us being out and about. The other 3 are when we got back home LOL. The back roads around here are really fun, but you have to watch out for deer!

    October 30th Our Buick is a good car, but has zero class. Which one catches your eye first?

    October 30th Funny how my phone's awesome camera makes the paint on my car look really good when it's really not.

    October 30th: Gave my son a driving lesson again. Like I've said before, what better way to learn a clutch than with fluid Drive! I sat right next to him and did the accelerator and the brake. He took the emergency brake off, operated the clutch, put it into gear, and steered the car. What a great father-son moment!

    Heater Control Valve

    Unless you're dead set on having an original, just get an after-market one. the one on my 51 Dodge is for a late model Toyota pickup. Works just fine. Do a search, I know there's information on this forum about those.

    Electronic ignition again

    It's good to hear everyone's opinions. For me, I've had quite a number of bad points over the years on different cars. Even a few that were brand new and bad off the shelf. I've had my Pertronix kit (6V) in the Meadowbrook since May 2017 with no issues. Around 8K on the engine rebuild and kit.

    October 10: Drove into town for some dinner and to grab a few things at the market. Weather turned windy and cold. The heater did not fail us. Don't the other cars just look silly in the background?

    Sept. 30: Drove the Meadowbrook into town with the kids to pick up a few things at the market. My daughter took these photos. I averaged about 40 mph because of all the deer. Heater...on!

    46 dodge oil pressure

    Mine runs those very numbers and it was rebuilt 7K miles ago. Runs perfect. Don't sweat it!

    Ecodiesel Files

    I’ve never had a nice truck in my life. Many capable and enjoyable ones, but never a nice one. So I picked up this 2018 Ram 1500 crewcab with the 240HP Ecodiesel. Man...what an awesome truck guys. I absolutely love it! Anyone else here have one with an Ecodiesel?

    Keith, we have in-floor heat and love it. We keep the house at 75 degrees... no way I'm busting my butt making all this wood and then allow myself to freeze on top of that. Greg g, I'd be too embarrassed to show you my wood pile, I can't stack worth it damn!

    Sept. 26: Drove the Meadowbrook to work this morning. It was a chilly 45 degrees. The heater worked great! I didn't even need the fan to stay warm. What a beautiful fall day! A guy approached me when I was on lunch getting some food at a gas station and asked me about the car. He said his dad just bought a 1940 Dodge with suicide doors for $6,000.

    Picked up a brand new Brave wood splitter last week. It's a 30-ton model. It will split wood in the vertical position as well. Honda engine. Now I don't have to swing the axe anymore. Towed it home with the EcoDiesel.

    Exploring my Meadowbrook

    Yeah it ran good. No real problems. Since it had no compression it got over 20mpg too. Later it suffered from a bad set of points or condenser, or both. But I had the engine rebuilt and a Pertronix kit put in. No problems at all.

    Me and the Meadowbrook

    Sept. 21: The weather has finally cooled off here. It will be in the forties tonight. We took the Meadowbrook into town to gas up and then took a cruise out in the country. I opened the valve for the heater about halfway but didn't need the fan at all. Car ran great and it was a fun cruise!

    Exploring my Meadowbrook

    My Meadowbrook engine was burning as much oil as you say yours does. When we took the engine apart 5 of the 6 top rings fell apart in many pieces. Having the engine rebuilt was a blessing. Hope you find the answer.

    Monday Sept. 10: Drove the Meadowbrook to work this morning in the foggy blackness. Had the heater on low the whole way. Stopped at the market on the way home for some groceries. Feels good to be behind the wheel again.

    Sept. 8: I told my wife she wouldn’t see another Meadowbrook. I was right, but later on this guy pulled in with a 51 Coronet with the Gyromatic tranny. He only lives 30 minutes from me, and invited me to his semi-weekly gatherings (for old cars). He had just got that 51 running and welded in some floorboards. The plugs looked like they had been in there for 50 years! Yet that old flathead ran.

    Sept. 8: This old Dodge was kinda cool. It had a full length snap on leather top! Now that’s a convertible. You can see it rolled up most of the way.
