  1. As was stated by Sam this is a great tool and Advance Auto Parts stocks these and usually has a code to get you 20% off if you reserve it on line.

    That looks like a nice project. Good job on the firewall. Keep us updated on the progress
  3. Getting to where you can feel the progress and anticipate it's all coming together. Looking good
  4. Don't be shy take the full .050" off you will like it. I did .070 once it got to full clean-up.
  5. I attached a link with some options for the extended bell housing motors from the "Hamb" lots more information on the topic over there if you want to read up. I personally have steered away from the extended bell blocks. Picture an additional 8-10" of cast iron (estimated from memory) hanging off the back of the block. https://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/threads/331-hemi-extended-block-modification.249741/
  6. Ulu, Nicely done, looks like a good place to sit back with a cool drink and relax.
  7. Beautiful car Linus. Always liked that year and body style along with the 67 GTO. Glad to see it survived the years and is in good hands.
  8. E-bay has grown some for better and some for worse. The "Sniping" software made it easy for you and others to submit your bid in the last 5 seconds of the auction for example and really worked well. The trouble is most of that software available came with stuff you did not want when you downloaded it (nothings free). I am still a user and when in need it is a good source to check for parts first.
  9. PA, The 2 adapters/spacers are 4.5BC to 4.5BC purchased from E-bay site a few years back for another project that is on hold. I am impressed with the quality of them overall for the price. Placed them in the picture to show an option for those that may want to start with these to build a cheap puller. They are aluminum but I think I paid $25 for the set of 2. Similar to these currently offered below and I doubt I could make them for less money. 2pc Hubcentric Wheel Spacers Adapters ¦ 5X114.3 (5X4.5) ¦ 64.1 CB ¦ 20mm Thick | eBay (2) 1" inch 5x4.5 to 5x4.5 Wheel Spacers 25mm 1/2" x 20 Studs | eBay
  10. KeithB7, Really well thought out and executed garden. Had to be satisfying to sit back and enjoy it after all the hard work. When you work hard for something to get it the way you want it the appreciation of every detail is so much more than the eye can see.
  11. I see a lot of discussion on drum pullers for our old Mopars so I thought I would post this easy to make puller I put together a few years back. No flexing in this baby and never fails. If you slot the holes it could be used on other makes as well. You could also make an insert to adapt it for a slide hammer for pulling axles. I see some folks bidding on these lately and this may be an cheap option. Next to the puller you will see some wheel spacers that if you found in steel would give you a head start. Use a piece of pipe, 2 nuts and some threaded rod for those with limited machining capabilities. Posted in tool thread just now as well Hope this helps V$

  13. Here is a picture of mine from a previous year. Have not tilled it up yet this year with the cold weather and rain were having. I like the raised bed idea to help keep the small animals out. I trapped 14 skunks, a raccoon, 7 squirrels, a woodchuck, a feral cat, and 2 possum all in about 30 days winter before last. Deer are also tuff but my fault for not putting up a fence. I second Los comment on those PA buckets they look great and the price is certainly a deal. I see 55 gallon plastic drums come up for sale at pretty decent prices that could work.
  14. Does it really matter much to you what others think on this matter I guess dictates what you feel you need to do. I never had a car or motorcycle in a show and never really cared what others thought of my ride. Honestly we are all different and will fall on either side of the fence or somewhere in-between on the subject. I attend shows rarely and for me I can find something positive on most everything when looking at a car/bike. Now if they have a swap meet section, that is likely where I'll be treasure hunting for something I can refurbish, utilize, fix, hang on a wall or make into something else. One man's trash is another mans treasure.
