  1. I am computer illiterate, but if you check me out on the member list and scroll to June 28, 2014 I had my grandson post some pictures of my '52 Wayfarer. I made the grill from 6 sets of VW bumper guards. Had to cut all but the center one, but was no big deal. Bob
  2. Try patchboy.com. #17-501-OV. Brass oval stem, 1 1/2 in. for .625 hole. I have these in my '52 Dodge stock rims. Running Diamondback 215/15 radials for 5 or 6 years, and no problems. Bob
  3. I do same as Dodgeb4ya on my 52 dodge stock rims.. I use the oval valve stems and have no problem with leaks.Make sure bead on rim is clean. Bob
  4. I have a '52 dodge and the track has four 5/16th and two 5/8th balls in each track. I found them at Norfolk bearing, so I would think pretty muc h any bearing shop should have them. Not sure if # and sizes are same for '47 Plymouth. Bob
  5. Are you keeping the stock brake pedal or are you going to swing pedal? I'm getting ready to do a 360/ A518 swap in my "52 Wayfarer and I think I will keep the stock brake pedal. Will follow your post. Thanks Bob
  6. I got oval stems for my 52 Dodge from Patchboy, but I don't see them now. I did find some at Tire Supply Network, part #H-501OV. May want to call them and confirm they will fit. Their phone is 1-855-550-2626. Good luck Bob
  7. First read Gregs post about doing anything above my neck, I thought "I'm the same way". Then I realized he was talking about the height of what he was working on and not remembering why he was doing it.

    look at patchboy.com. check brass truck stems. I used the plastic beads for balancing with WWW radials and have same experience as Joe Lee.
  9. I second the 9' wide doors, minimum. I put 8' in mine, and regret it every time I use them.
  10. I have a '52 Dodge Wayfarer and I went to Lowes and got an 8 ft. piece of vinyl screen tight used to trim 4x4 porch posts.. I got the 3.5 in.wide section. You get base piece and snap on top piece. I trimmed it to fit and works fine. Doesn't look close to original, but covers rough rocker and looks somewhat finished. Cost about $12, so not a disaster if you don't like it. Bob
  11. Radio news going to work this morning warned not to eat your turkey if it was spoiled, or if came out of a trash can or dumpster. Point of announcer reading it was exactly as PA pointed out.
  12. fourth picture looks like a crude side post battery cable clamp.
  13. Had a good friend who drove an old beater Ford truck to work every day. He tack welded a box end wrench and a pair of vice grips to the top edge of the bed right behind the driver door and then waved back at everybody that honked, waved and pointed toe to tools.
  14. Oval valve stems available on Amazon for $18.00 for 5. Made by Milton Industries.
