  1. are these chokes hard to find?
  2. Just unbelievable. I know is old news, but nevertheless just mind boggling.
  3. Agreed. I built this engine, my first build from the crank up, could well have done something wrong. I was told rod #5 is the one that usually goes, any truth to that?
  4. JAMES, remember these radiators cooled the flatheads at 30+ mph.
  5. So, why did mine throw a rod? Still baffles me. I had the replacement pistons and rods balanced to prevent, yet still lost #5.
  6. I sold “gave” a six bladed fan to a buyer in Australia, UPS, $145. Took it to the PO and shipped it for less than $25.00. Arrived on time! But then years ago, they found a Pony Express rider under a large tree wit an arrow in his back and the postal bag unmolestested. So they’ve had problems before! I guess you just take your chances.
  7. Today I put a starter into a brown box, 12 X 12 X 4. UPS . ... $70, same at the post office. So I put it in a white priority box of the same size, shipping COST dropped to $23.00. Destination, North Carolina, USA. INTERESTING.,
  8. Approximately what did those parts cost? I’m researching to install a Vintage Air VW unit in my truck. The inside space of the trucl cab is less than a VW sedan and the VW compressor only requires a 30 hp engine. Food for thought!
  9. Working on my ‘53 Plymouth. I ordered one from Roberts. Trust it’s the correct one!
  10. I threw my old rags on the floor. I believe they self lit. A tough Sunday morning!
  11. I put together a new oil on my bench. But my flex hose is no good and I’m having a difficult time finding a new one, VPW has them but very pricy. Suggestions will be appreciated. paul i found what I need at Roberts. Ordered it!
  12. Adams, Who would want to have armadillos for pets, in any season, or have to switch the stoves from the porch twice a year?
  13. The dirty one is too long. I have a rebuilt starter I don’t need.
  14. When I read about your maladies, I’m very fortunate and thankful to have lived 82 years mostly pain free. Have some knee and arthritis problems, but still getting along. My best wishes to each and all of you.
