    I see that Andy Bernbaum, under new ownership, is now advertising on the forum. I also received an email from the P15/D24 forum about this change and the fact that Bernbaum's is giving a 10% discount on all orders if you mention the P15/D24 forum. This runs to July 31. I needed some new spark plug wires so I phoned to order. Order was taken quickly, service was polite, and the wires will go in the mail today. The 10% discount was given also. If you need anything for your vehicle, it might be worth looking at their online catalogue. I am not promoting Bernbaum's over any other supplier

  3. The time has come to give my Windsor's carb a re-build. Thought I would share a step by step to help others in the future. This is my first time to rebuild a carter so any pointers or addtions will be welcomed. This is what I am starting out with. Very dirty after all these years! First of course, is to remove the air cleaner. My car has the automatic choke and the next is disconnecting the electrical connections. The one on top is a simple bullet plug. The one on the side requires that you remove two small screwsand pull the wire from inside the carb. There are two linkage ro

  4. Many site visitors appear to arrive with the pre-conceived opinion that some technologies because they are old, are outdated, obsolete and functionally replaced by newer technology. Case in point are two common forum topics, oil bath air cleaners and bypass oil filters. Both these technologies have been around for many decades and in fact perform better than the "newer" technologies of full flow spin-on oil filters and paper air filters. Let take a closer look at both. 
 I ride and wrench on dirt bikes and quads for fun. I mostly ride in the California coastal mountains, noted for dry, hot an

  5. I like my '38 gauges too much to change anything, but I always admired the bakelite dash in the slightly newer ('41,'42?) New Yorkers. I couldn't do the real thing, but "Hydro-Graphics" got me a satisfying (to me) look:

  6. I checked the web site & it looks like they may be a place to check out, thanks for the info. In case your wondering this is the reason it took so long to install the black grill, I just got the cast zinc grill medallion back from chrome shop.

    Worn timing chain is easy to check. Just pull the crank around to TDC. Pop off the distributor cap and note where the rotor is pointing. Mark the position. Then, revearse crank rotation while watching the rotor. As soon as it moves, stop and look at the timing marks on the crank. Take note of the diff between TDC and when you observed the rotor move. If the diff is 0-5 degrees, the chain is good. 6 to 9 and it's getting sloppy. More then that and it will be hard to start and be down on power. Replace the chain and gears. You can support the engine at the oil pan or from overh

  9. You might have seen my thread on re-building my Carter BB with automatic choke. Dispite what I though to be good photos of the process, I have run into 2 snags as I re-assemble the carb. I have a question about the gasket on the fuel bowl. Ther is a part circled in red below. Does it sit above or below the gasket? Photo A or B Photo A Photo B With the re-build kit I received a new fuel inlet nut that seems to differ from the original. The new one appears to be one piece while the old one h

    "He got the junk yard attitude" I think that is so true!! As my mini junk yard grows and I find myself fighting more bees and varmits.....I get a little "proud" of the part I've yanked out of there. Once in awhile you run arcross a guy who doesn't appreciate that hard work and/or changes their mind about what they want. That's when your skin gets a little tougher I think. I hope I never get to far gone, but there is something about those older guys who have a big junk yard and know where every nut and bolt is..... As far as AB goes, I've had good luck with them and look forward to the

  12. Go for it, worst case you have to sleep in the truck for a few nights... I've seen a couple Utes that were shipped over at car shows on the west coast of the USA. I'd love to get my hands on one. They look really nice with a restored/modernized vintage camper behind them. I'd say the original poster's silver one is about as close to perfect as you are likely to find. Maybe add some nicely sealed and polished gumwood or eucalyptis burl trimmings and enjoy driving it.

  13. It's pretty much the same deal here in Oz - Ford and Chev trucks seem to fetch ridiculous prices in comparison to those that fly the MOPAR banner!

  14. Truthfully She is worth the buy it now price, atleast here in the States! I do not know how Dodge hold up against Ford & Holden in Australia? But if it is the same as in the States, with Few exceptions Dodge is the underdog, But that only means that we can own them for less then the rest!
