  2. Well, I did not need another project, but this was too nice to go to the scrapper. A friend told me about an old Chrysler wagon with a hemi, that had been sitting in the same spot for 39 years, up in the mountains of northern CA, about 3 hours from my house. I talked with the owner, a nice fellow, a lumberjack, sawmill owner who used it for his business in the 70's and in 1981, parked it when it began to smoke and drip oil a bit. He covered it up, and although the snow caved the roof in a bit here and there, everything else is in remarkable shape, even for a California car. It is a 1954 New Yo

  7. Got all of the screw holes converted over to square holes for carriage bolts. Required new tools it's an official project now! Side boards fit much better now and this will be the final assembly before finishing the wood and installation.

  8. did you check the forward silent block on the vehicle also the rear shackle bushing are notorious for wear to the point they knock the driveline out of phase......in this era the SB mount is a riveted mount...and not tweakable with shims as is later style....bushing are replaceable big box store item and are inexpensive Mopar A-body units...you will have to trim a bit as the older springs are a bit narrow.

  9. .19 degrees? Could be factory. if it drives normal and no unusual tire wear i wouldnt think twice about it. spring mounts could be another thing to look at. Worn bushings. Dont know how precise the alignments were back in 1947.

    Yes, yes I did. Glad to help. Now take a known accurate speedo and spin it up (wide open and fresh battery) with your cordless. Make a note of the speed. Adjust the next speedo's to that speed tested the same way. Bob's your uncle.

    LOL dude! Did you just say my spring is wound to tight? yep, that was it. 😊 the speedometer was not working at all for this truck, I’ll add another check mark in the “working again column” thanks!

  12. i’ve looked, but i don’t see any. i’ll take some once i pull the motor, since i need some parts from it - manifolds, distributer, coolant elbow, fuel pump, water pump, etc. got the transmission pulled today. a heck of a lot easier with my recent purchase, a transmission jack.

  13. Not done yet...You might have noticed I'm a pick nitter, so I will touch up the edges of the 8. The 3 is probably fine. I don't want it to look too good, they didn't originally. I used a dense foam block to sand, 2000 grit. But I pushed too hard on the 8 and it deformed over the edge. that why the bottom right looks like that. I started on the other end and was rushing a bit by the last character. The CAL at the top and 45 on the other end are the only other parts that still need white. Then clear over it all to give it some protection.

    Set it so the needle just barely rests at zero. You may have it wound too tight.
