    YEAHHHH!!!! RETIRED!!!!!!

    You know it’s time to retire when, in the graph of your career your “have enough” line intersects with your “had enough” line. Congratulations! Zeke
  2. Speaking of driving lights, I have a set of Dietz 510 New York 6 volt lights that I am not going to get around to installing. They appear to be NOS slightly pitted with mounting brackets. The lights have been tested and work. But wait, that's not all! I will include another matching 510 light with working bulb, also NOS but without mounting brackets. But wait, that’s not all! Included in this offer is a NOS Niehoff “lite” switch! But wait, that’s not all. For a limited time I will include free delivery to Hershey next week! All this for $70.00. P.M. if interested. Zeke

  5. Re: master disconnect. I’m wondering if the stud you used on the starter solenoid is strong enough to support the cut off switch and brass bar. Zeke

    How not to ship vintage car literature

    In defense if the shipping agent, if the item isn’t prepared properly it will not fair well during shipment. There are a lot of parcels being moved around at any given time.It is a good idea to insert a separate shipping label with a return address inside the parcel In case the outside label gets damaged or lost. When shipping parts I use a shipping tag wired to the item. Zeke

    The Ressurection of Daphne - a 1932 DL

    My experience has been that "stop leak" additives don't work well in non-pressurized coolant systems. Stop leak needs pressure to force treated coolant out the hole until the hole seals. Zeke
  8. I was sitting in a car on the 4th of July one year with a friend who had a long string of firecrackers in his lap. Someone tossed a firecracker into the car and it landed in the lap of my friend. The inevitable ensued. We couldn't find the door handles to escape because of the smoke and commotion. Forty some years ago and I'm still a little surprised that I survived the experience. That might be the source of my tinnitus. As an aside, my friend never fathered any children either. To tie the event into antique autos, the car was a 1964 Chrysler New Yorker. Zeke

    ZDDP issues

    After reading the replies I think I will use the oil I bought for this change ,regrouping for the future. It appears that the Chevron Delo will work for this application. It’s certainly better than what passed for good in 1933. My main concern was to avoid a situation that might void my Dodge Brothers warranty. (s)Thanks to all for the research and thoughtful comments. Zeke

    ZDDP issues

    I went to the oil wholesaler today intending to buy some motor oil for my spring change today and found that oils have evolved yet again. I have been buying Shell Rotella for mixed use (gas or diesel). What I found is that Rotella no longer has a designation (SN in the API donut) for gasoline engines. I bought Chevron Delo because it had the SN designation but called the technical support number to be sure the oil was okay to use in gasoline engines. What tech support said was that most ZDDP had been removed from Diesel engine oil. I was told that what I bought was okay for my application but was not significantly different from strictly gasoline motor oil. Anyone else by motor oil lately? What is going on? Zeke

    MrEarl's Daily Therapeutic Dose of Buick

    Maybe you could utilize a gofundme account to help with the expense of a fill-up. Zeke

    1933 Dodge Cabriolet (DP6)

    I might have one. Could you send a larger, more detailed picture? The emblem I have is a grill badge. Might be the same. Zeke

    1961 Oldsmobile Dynamic 88 4 door Holiday Hardtop

    Were the legs an original accessory or were they aftermarket? More importantly, are they a package deal with the car? Zeke

    Right hand drive Saturn

    Not exactly correct cheeze my man. Mine was as red as a boboon’s butt. Out of three Subarus in our office only one was white and it was an older model. I did have to cough up 16 large before the dealer would even order it. That galled me because the dealer was as crooked as a dog’s hind leg. Edited to say that we didn’t get a choice about the color.
