  1. Gator's got your granny... Chomp, chomp chomp chomp...
  2. Those are fairly generic. Take some measurements and one of your u-joints to Napa and and they should be able to come up with something that will work. Here are some at Speedway that may fit. https://www.speedwaymotors.com/Universal-Drive-Shaft-U-Bolts-1-1-8-Inch-Cap,6578.html?sku=91048314&utm_medium=CSEGoogle&utm_source=CSE&utm_campaign=CSEGOOGLE&gclid=CjwKCAjwxqX4BRBhEiwAYtJX7TMHZ9_y7rj5THgtUAAB1Il9aFvrVCUrqgdYskX0t7-NQveOI74nIBoCRiQQAvD_BwE https://www.speedwaymotors.com/Universal-Drive-Shaft-U-Bolts-1-1-16-Inch-Cap,32127.html
  3. That's a beautiful car. It's hard to imagine it's appearance could be improved.
  4. View Advert 1947 Dodge D24 4 door sedan $3,000 I have a 1947 Dodge 4 door for sale. It's in good shape and fairly complete but was dismantled by the p.o. with the intent of doing a drivetrain swap. The body is in decent shape with some rocker rust but nothing noticeable elsewhere. The bumpers and guards are in excellent condition, there's an almost new Tanks Inc fuel tank, a spare set of rear fenders and a complete hood assembly included along with some miscellaneous parts. Tires are good, seat covers are nice. Headliner's shot, good glass, exterior trim, etc. I didn't get a radiator with the car. The engine and trans are out of the car but have been stored inside on a skid with all openings sealed since it was removed approximately 5 years ago. All the front sheetmetal, grille, etc, have also been removed. I intended to re-assemble this car but have decided to focus on a different project instead. The p.o. signed the title in the wrong place but has assured me that he will get a duplicate title. Barring sale of complete car I may reluctantly part it out. I'm not looking to profit from this but only to recoup my investment. This could be a very nice driver with little extra cash investment. The car and parts will have to be picked up near Sikeston, Mo. Advertiser MackTheFinger Date 07/09/2020 Price $3,000.00 Category Individual Member Classified For Sale Ad

  6. Mr. H has roots in southern Illinois and surely knows a dead end road when he sees one.. We got 'em beat, though; there are even more on this side of the river!!
  7. Anyone ever tried using a tractor reg? They're a bunch cheaper. https://www.amazon.com/DB-Electrical-GFD6000-3-Terminal-Bat-Arm-Fld/dp/B00Q8LRXOQ/ref=pd_lpo_263_t_2/137-1051434-3345205?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B00Q8LRXOQ&pd_rd_r=e9354a1a-849c-40ae-8411-a766660f91fe&pd_rd_w=Yp8uC&pd_rd_wg=H1tjQ&pf_rd_p=7b36d496-f366-4631-94d3-61b87b52511b&pf_rd_r=2PGBA87F3S4CCN2Z1WWN&psc=1&refRID=2PGBA87F3S4CCN2Z1WWN
  8. Borgeson makes a power steering box for later model cars. It should be possible to adapt it to an earlier model vehicle but it's a long way from bolt-in. https://www.borgeson.com/xcart/product.php?productid=1748&cat=143&page=1
  9. Man, that was a GREAT looking car!! One of my buddies had a junkyard for a long time. He always said that every one of the cars he stripped and crushed was someone's pride and joy at one time. We were really good friends and hung out together a lot but sadly he passed away almost 20 years ago. Two or three years ago I was at a gas station 30-40 miles from here and a slightly scroungy looking guy came over and said "I bet you don't remember me, last time I saw you was at C.W.'s junkyard 29 years ago!" It was one of C.W.'s ex-employees, George. Still don't know what his last name is. C.W. was one of those old-time junkyard guys and a lot of people thought he was just a hard case. George and I were talking about C.W. and George said that C.W. let him live in one of his rental houses free for a couple of years. George had been in prison for several years and was having a tough time getting back into society. Not everyone misses C.W. but George and I sure do!!
  10. That happens all too often. My old business partner I worked with through the '70's bought a Dodge Polara new in '62. He sold it when he got drafted in '63 and says it was the best car he ever owned.
  11. That's a really, really nice looking car.. Is that yours?
  12. I'm sure I'm in the majority when I confess my ignorance to Canadian geography. I had to look up Manitoba to find where it's located. One of my old HD brethren now lives in Mississaugu and all I know about that city is that it's fairly close to Detroit. As for the '57 and the contest, looks good to me! I've owned 55, 56, and 57 Chevys over the years and wouldn't mind having another. Closest it looks like I might get anytime soon is a '47 Chevy coupe that came up for sale nearby. Already subframed, small block, automatic, interior done. Biggest drawback is lousy amateur paint. Not my favorite body style but I followed one for a few miles yesterday while hauling Dodge parts home from St. Louis and it looked pretty darn good going down the road. If the guy accepts my offer I might throw some Dodge badges on it. PA would love it!! 😁
  13. To beat this old horse some more. If the tank's leaking replace it, if not just slosh some gas around in it until it comes out clean. I wouldn't use any kind of coating in any tank.
  14. If your tank isn't leaking it may be worth the effort and expense to have it cleaned and sealed. If it's leaking I'd toss it. I replaced the leaky fuel tanks on two of my non-Mopar cars in the last few months. Both replacement tanks were made in Taiwan, perfect fit and great quality. $500 for a new tank, straps, sending unit, and filler neck is reasonable. For the price of a couple of tires you can have a tank that you'll never have to worry about again.
