  1. Matt, what all did they do to the radiator? Good deal on the tank. Sounds like you dodged a bullet there. Ben

    Mark, I don't want to hijack this thread, but would like to see a pic of the stand. I need to build one. Thanks Ben
  3. 263 oil filter

    Baldwin P26! Bought mine from a Peterbilt truck dealer . Had bought one from one of the restoration parts houses and received the Baldwin P26. Bought a case of them from the Peterbilt dealer. In rebuttal to Grimey's last sentence, my filter has a drain plug. Ben

    Maybe go that way to the gulf. Yep on the tear drop. Ben
  5. Modified 263 for my 1950 41D

    Kinda sorta. If the stars and planets align while I am a spring chicken, a dream is to circle the lower 48 as near the coasts and borders as practical. As in dropping south to the gulf/Mexico junction and head west. Or east, depending on the season. Circle all the way back to starting point, touching all four extreme corners. Probably a fantasy, really. Fifteen years ago sounded doable and fun. Ben

    Unless Miss Rita ======= You will need only one equalizer/anti sway rig. The front part slides into the receiver on whichever tower you are using. The rest is clamped to the trailer. Ben

    Hey, Carl, thanks for asking. Family matters and slow progress have precluded much posting. The sleeve arrived Fri and went to the machine shop yesterday. Hopefully on the way. I have to get this thing running so as to make the circle I want. Coming by your place. Be ready. Ben
  8. Been testing that for 70 years since I first heard it. No conclusion. Ben

    Well, dang, Marty! I was looking forward to meeting you. Ben

  12. 77 Seville Noise update

    Oh please! Bernie does not need explained. Hopefully the PC crowd will be restrained. Hopefully the shop he took it to Monday will pull the valve covers as was suggested Feb 19. Should prove or eliminate . Ben
