  1. Looks like the future is looking bright for you and your wife! And "Edith" will have a nice new home too. Enjoy your retirement too. I retired a year and a half ago...but am always very busy working on the cars and other projects. Good luck to you🙂
  2. "Go to harbor freight, ask a clerk specifically for metal cutting, buy three, when they are worn out take the back for a refund! Worst that will happen is they will give you a store credit for other stuff" That's the way to bring up the kids!
  3. Photobucket... Is now where all past and future photo's end up.... In the trash gone forever They screwed themselves and everyone else in a big way. Bye Bye Photosucket💀🧐😂
  4. Your beautiful truck has a wonderful looking new home. Awesome!
  5. I have a 54 Chrysler 265 that has the crankshaft dual pulley and damper. It is a power steering engine.
  6. A lot of excellent planning/ design and quality of work. Like it a lot. Now get'r done.😄
  7. Cool original wrecker...1950 body style with a inside rear view mirror and a lot.of switches to play with.
  8. He needs....the 1-3/8" diameter valve spring retainer... It requires two (2) valve keepers with four grooves in each to retain the spring and retainer to the valve..🙂
  9. You got paid for a quick job well done!
  10. If you are going to rewire the complete front end of car / engine harness and some up under the dash... You will find as soon as you start undoing some wires from switches etc the wire starts to fray....so Take the complete dash assembly out with all the front of car/engine harness still connected to it. That's so you can photograph all the wiring and the way it's routed and connected. Leave the cluster in too. You can lay the dash and wiring out on a large bench or the floor being able to replace/duplicate all necessary wiring and clean repair what you want. >Remove the lower garnish molding...seven screws hold the top of the dash to the cowl. >Remove the 1/2" Rt and left lower dash retaining bolts (behind the top of kick panels) >Remove heater control panel (4 Phillip's screws) >Remove cowl vent bracket brace bolts to dash >Remove bolts securing steering column to dash >Photograph and disconnect/ mark all wiring in engine compartment that will be pulled through firewall rubber grommet hole when dash is pulled >Remove firewall grommets for..oil/temp gauge,speedo cable and main front wire harness >Disconnect oil gauge hose at engine >Disconnect temp gauge at cylinder head >Remove speedo cable if you can reach it from back of dash...if not remove it from trans..no oil will leak out >There might be the heater control valve temp sensor screwed to the side or rear of the glove box...cannot be sure >Some models will have a yellow wire at each end of fast connected to the door pillar switch remove if so >Dash should be ready to pull back and out...watch all cables as and wires as they come through firewall...remove complete dash..... If this was a.plymouth or dodge it would be simple but the Chrysler's are much more complicated and very tight. I have cut the main harness close to the firewall to separate the dash from the front harness for quicker R&R but normally don't as I want the harness undamaged to duplicate as original. Hope this helps and won't scare you away😬
