    My wife says we saw him once way back when but I sure don't remember it. If there was anyone left worth going to see that didn't cost an arm and a leg for tickets I'd be there. What do I care about other people? They haven't changed in the 70 years I've been around. 🙂
    I don't miss the past and wouldn't want to relive it. I do miss some of my family and friends who aren't around anymore but otherwise I'm satisfied with now.

    The above replies have been very helpful. Conclusion: i will leave engine as is. Will build a one high side panels on the box, use that to ship items, and ship it East. No time to do more here. And will, ship my replacement engine 
    TKS for the input.

    One ‘54 Plymouth  park lens and base was for sale on eBay for $45. There was a bid option so I bid $25 which was accepted. The part arrived today complete with rubber gasket, four mounting screws, and three lens, two late design, one early and the complete mount. Now that is what I call honest business.  Thank you JVP!!!

    When I was a child my father got one for use as a commuter car. Lasted for maybe 1/2 year until summer came along. . . The cooling system on it was not up to Arizona summers.

    Think classic Volkswagen Beetle if you're looking for a more vintage appearance.  The roof racks you can still get for those will hold something like 150 lbs, and they attach (clamp onto) the drip rails.  Only issues anyone has with them that I know of is the wind noise they create going down the highway.  I know folks that have them on hot-rodded (such as they are, for Beetles), as well as stock, cars that have no issues with them at highway speeds.  Knowing how handy you are, you could look them up and replicate how they attach on your project.  These MoPar drip rails are a bit stouter than those on Beetles.  JBugs/California Pacific, and Wolfsburg West are a couple of west coast VW parts houses that sell them.

    Got my first shot today. Appointment was at 2, arrived at 1:55. They had an army of volunteers directing cars, checking people in and getting shots. Hundreds of cars moving through the parking lot at any given moment.  Didn't even have to get out of the car.  I was finished and pulling out of the parking lot at 2:15.

    Reminds me of the old story about the man and the flood. A man was trapped on the roof of his house in a flood. He prayed to God for help. Shortly afterwards a boat pulled up. Get on they said. No he replied, God will save me. As the water rose a helicopter flew overhead, we'll lower you a rope. No said the man, God will save me. They flew away. The water now covered everything but the chimney. Another boat came. Get on before it's too late. The man said no, God will save me. He drowned. As he stood before God he asked God why he abandoned him.  God looked at him and said" I sent two boats and a helicopter"  The moral is, you also gotta help yourself.

    It depends.  In a parallel circuit voltage remains the same, but current will vary.  As long as the supply wire can handle the required current draw for both circuits, then no it will not affect anything.  If the supply wire is undersized then yes it can affect both circuits.

    Brake shoe adjustment tool. I’ll put tape on the shoe for my feeler gauge and set it thusly. Should be accurate enough.

    Overall update.. I cleaned and put in a new carburetor kit.  Now starts immediately. Once rear brakes completed and lines bled, then can test drive and get to CHP, so mechanically very close. Same with the Sportster, just received needed new engine mount so that in and engine installed that is ready for CHP also. So I’m slowly getting there.

    Update: our son is now definitely on the upward line, has been down, mostly fatuous for 12 days now. Yesterday his son, age 16 tested positive, so we try to live very carefully. My wife and I tested negative, I was more negative than she.
