  1. Nice Looking Truck , No answer to your question. There are a few Pilot House Trucks in your area ( Torrance/Gardena Ca)., I am working on a '50 B 2 B in Torrance if you need a hand let me know. Rod
  2. Hey Old CWO , Yepp, I have a couple. First bring good walking shoes LOTS to see, acres of parts. Second, SKIP the first Six (6) rows { all VW parts }. Not alot of Vintage Mopar parts but there are some scattered around. If you are into Vintage or Modern Motor Cycles there is a BIG Swap meet at El Camino College in Torrance. It will be held the Saturday before Pomona ( 12 Oct. 2019 ). It is too bad you will not be in CA on October 26, 2019. The BIG MOPAR Fall Fling Swap meet happens. Way too many parts to take home.

  10. The " Cleveland Style " U joints are straight forward, bend down locking tabs then use 7/16 box wrench to remove. Mark the relationship of driveshaft to rear end and transmission, otherwise you might get vibrations @. High Speeds. On my truck there was enough play / movement to slide the shaft clear enough to remove . A VERY easy job that can be done in one afternoon with all the parts there I ordered mine from Roberts Motors last year $ 150.00 + Shipping ordered on Monday , delivered by Wednesday afternoon,Back on the road Wednesday night
  11. Hot Rod Tractor, I had been Looking for set of SS bars for my '50 B2B for MANY years.

I found a set but the we're too beat up for the amount they were asking plus they wanted WAY more then the cost to ship them. Took me 5 years of looking many false le

  14. Hey all computer experts, Lucky me picked up a 7 year old Samsung Tablet last week. I was able to see this website but no where is there a place/location on the screen to " Sign In " that I can find.

Thanks for any and all help, Rod
