  1. I thought orange instead of red. I'm building up a 265 that will be hemi orange. The Fargo front bars are a little different. I used pinstriping tape.
  2. I used a relay. Some relays have a normaly closed contact as well as a normaly open. The key switch provides power. The N.C contact allows the pump to run. The car starts and builds oil pressure at the pressure switch.The pressure switch closes. The relay trips over, the N.C. contact opens and the fuel pump shuts off. Sorry if its a bit hard to understand. If you need I could provide a schematic.
  3. The engine was out of a 48 or 49 truck. I have not exactly determined the size of truck but it had a vacuum shift rear axle and boosted brake system. Could the baffles be for added durability for truck engines? Similar to the sodium valves in some truck engines.
  4. Not that I know their purpose but they were in one of my engines that I recently tore down. A 236 that I'm converting to 265.
  5. Southern Ontario. About 1 hr from Niagara Falls. Vacation is already booked for Sept. Tracey's Dodge for sure, Maybe my Fargo.
  6. It wouldn't be too late for me. Lots of nice cars and trucks from the guys on the forums. Maybe one calendar for car guys one calendar for truck guys. I would buy both.
  7. Its a great site bringing like minded people together. Thanks for what you do. As for fund raising how about an official P15 - D24 calendar? Anything Mopar is harder to find. Last years calendar was Ford this years is Chev.
  8. My Dad baled hay for several years with a 730 diesel that I put a cut down 6" transport exhaust on. Neighbours on the next concession liked the sound. Not just because of this but Dad has hearing aids now.
  9. I adjusted pedal travel and position by customizing the clevis and push rod length. 2 psi inline checks to make sure the calipers stay full. Jeep Grand Cherokee rear axle with disks and Scarebird front disks. No issues stopping.
  10. Started playing with 2 cylinders back in the 80s. Dad and I have collected a few since then. I don't like Champion plugs but that's just an opinion. I found out the hard way not to use modern high resistance plug wires on a mag. Our AR would not start unless pulled. Problem was solved by switching to copper core plug wires.
  11. The mounting pattern in your picture looks to be the same as on my 49 1/2 ton. I used a Toyota Celica master cylinder. 86 to 89 no ABS. Opened up the meteric holes to fit standard bolts and it fits into the original bolt pattern. No adapter plate required.
  12. I used a '02 Jeep Grand Cherokee rear under my 49 1/2 ton. 3.55 ratio and disk rear brakes. It fit nice but the rear bolt pattern was not 5 on 4.5. It was also a little bit narrower. An adapter fixed both width and bolt pattern.
  13. No customs issues. We explained what happened. He looked at his computer and said have a nice day. I'm pretty sure they know when both the truck and car crossed into NY state.
  14. Great bunch of people who helped me out a tonne. (meteric EH!) Unfortunatly this is how I got home. See you in 2020!
