  1. Get some parts and motorize that wheel chair. It will give you something to do“. I like the idea, so i am researching servo motors, a good battery and a joy stick!!!!!
  2. Rat Rods from Africa. This older guys ideas are really impressive and are reasonable to do. For a beginner builder, for me it is a must watch. Happy Holidays to all.
  3. I have several. What size do no need. Im in central California.
  4. Found this surfing. I dont’ know, but the wheels and tail light might give good clues.
  5. “. . , So, if you have a power failure, then you cannot look at it to figure out what's wrong. He allowed as that could be a problem.?” I love it when such questions are raised!
  6. And hard body mounts, i will replace those, lots of great help in this thread.
  7. I did not know this body style existed. Anyone know of this?
  8. Thanks guys, very, very helpful information for novice mechanics like me. My exhaust system will be very tight from now on. So much to learn and so little time to learn it. My leg is healing.
  9. It seems , to me, that trucks, unlike cars of the same age are engine noisy and have a strong engine smell. How did they do that in the cars but not in the trucks. That aroma is the main reason my wife does not like to ride in my truck.
  10. Update: Stitches and staples were removed on Wednesday and a new cast. But I’m required to stay with the wheel chair for another four weeks. So I’m trying to figure out what to do during that time.
  11. I have a trailer like that, paid $50 for it, but it has 15” rims.
  12. I visited with this Desoto owner when we were in Winnipeg five years ago. His back yard was the river that runs through Winnipeg. His cars were near perfect. I cannot recall his name.
  13. Harvie, Rusty Hope’s. I have installed two of them. Best on the market from a very honest person.
  14. Good advise. Thankyou. Will not remove the cab. We have delayed moving east. I’m focusing on completing those projects. Was on track when I broke my leg. It is healing nicely, just have to wait out the healing process.
  15. If memory serves me correct, only 16 bolts are required to do a PH frame off. What that then allows one to do is raise the chassis and most of the work is at bench height. This eliminates most “on the concrete’ work.
  16. I cheated by installing a car starter with push button on the dash. No regrets. The foot push rod remains for some future owner if he wishes stock.
  17. At my age, the more advanced the modern cars get, the more I like my B3B. I just like to feel the road, hear the engine and smell the aroma.
  18. Leg surgery tomorrow at 8:00 a.m. Will get screws and a plate.
  19. I really like the hub cap license plate idea. Other walls as well. Shows you’ve been at this for a while.
  20. I didn’t know you moved so slowly that a mower could set green grass on fire.
  21. Physical therapist canceled the walking frame, So knee shooter will be ordered. Surgery next Thursday. Will put in a metal brace. Enjoy your day, be careful.
  22. I have an R11. What is required to put it behind my 218 engine.

      The OD itself is the same over all brands.  But the transmission case must match the engine.   I think yours is a Ford version.   really difficult to adapt that input shaft and trans case to a mopar clutch housing. 

       

      I've never tried it nor seen anyone else try.  Just to many hurdles to clear.   Better to find one intended for a Mopar, but they will be R10 versions.  I've heard rumors that some r11 models were used in the very late 50s in bigger cars, but have never seen one.

      I got it free, don’t know where, so will make a small amount for iron. 

  23. Broken leg update: x ray showed a long complete break of the finial. So surgery next week Thursday to put in a metal support. Then six weeks of non use of that leg. Yesterday they showed me that the ankle was dislocated also. So they reset that and set the broken bone. That was not an experience to write home about. I really appreciate the thoughtful encouraging responses from this forum, thank you all. Photo is the new wrap. I just found this, will have the Dr set the cast so there is room to use this. A true game changer.
