Thanks to the site and everyone!

Recommended Posts

Well it was a bitter sweet day today, I had listed my truck thinking it would take awhile to sell, but I had someone here 12 hours later and they took it away today.  

It was time for a new adventure and that meant a lot near the lake and a trailer to go on it, so the other toys had to go.


I just wanted to thank everyone here for the years of knowledge and help and debate and general discussion, it was crucial to my success with the truck, and I hope in that time I also helped out a few other members.


I don’t see myself trolling here much anymore, I’m thinking that might be a downer for me, but I’m sure once in a blue moon I’ll stop by

Change is good. You helped a lot here.....maybe you'll try another era Dodge and see us here again. If not....by all means, thanks for all the help and input to others! Good Luck my friend.

Hey Guys,

Well I was feeling bad and had an urge to build something to remember my truck by, and I’ve wanted a propane fire table at the lake, so I built this little beauty…218 flathead fire breather.  I figure like my truck is a complete custom and you aren’t likely to see one like it.


One thing that did anger me in this build, in all my time and multiple past engines I never found a road draft tube bypass kit, or the special oil filler neck with the collection canister on it to dump the breather oil…this engine had it all, and would have saved a lot of under body oiling on my truck.


enjoy and take care guys!

I want to see pictures of fish musky, Pike, smallies or whatever you hook!😁

24” Walleye on yesterday’s outing…lol but the flathead only gets to cook marshmallows and hotdogs 😆
