  1. autometers. the chrome rings are from broken speedo's drilled the rivets and used the bezels to bolt to the dash
  2. I put the booster under the cab, it take some custom work on mounting plates. I purchased booster, master and pedal as an assembly the proportioning valve went into the frame rail under the drivers seat. The only problem with this set up is to access the master for filling I had to remove the tranny cover plate.
  3. when I did the rusty hope disc conversion I went with a 7" brake booster with dual master attached, also I had a proportioning valve from a Chevy nova that I used to get the disc/drum pressures.
  4. I replaced the line using steel (brake lines) tube. Because of the frame flex, I used two short rubber hoses to transition from frame to tank and motor to allow for movement.
  5. Very cool. I was really surprised to see the Jaguar XJ 6 front suspension was almost a direct fit.
  6. sounds like its shorting at the distributor. There is a bakelite sleeve that insulates the small wire that passes thru the Dist. After 70 years it breaks when you look at it. I would check continuity between the coil wire and the dist case, and would guess you have a short. I fixed mine with the body of a bic pen, using the clear plastic as the insulating tube.
  7. thank you. Rims were 16x7 and the rubber was 235/85.
  8. these are my stocktons for the 1 Ton, bought them in 09, the rim is great.
  9. I do it for show, great fun. Never realized how much quieter it is OUTside of the cab. I do chock the wheels cause I don't trust the park brake.
  10. out of curiousity as a late 1955 is it a positive ground 12 volt?
  11. its my understanding that the resistor only pulls out electrical interference. As these motors have rudimentary electrical systems, I don't think it would make a difference either way. (using resistive or non resistive)
  12. exactly under the "B" on the map. Set up the tent on the edge, great spot for the night
  13. Went to Carpenter Lake in BC. Was a town of 800 in the 1930's, then about 60 people late 1950s then the HydroElectric company dammed the river and flooded the valley, including the town. Now they are servicing the dam and released all the water. Apparently Hdyro workers came in and removed some gas pumps and other items for relocation to a local museum, when we got there this is all that remains. It doesn't look like anything but when you start walking around you can see the houses, streets, etc. We found about 5 cars, now just skeletons, one had the glass of the door, the coiled regulator spring and the aluminum door handle, all other sheet metal was gone. One of the photos is probably a mine car or rail car judging by the wheel, but the thing that had we thinking was only one of the cars had a motor/tranny. All the rest did not. They had differentials, one had the seat, frame rails etc. Were the motors valuable? did the Hydro company remove the motors for environmental reasons? (this was the late 50's)?
