  1. Front brakes Locked up on mgb

    So what happened then? Did mixing of incompatible fluids cause this "relief hole" to plug up, and pressure to build?

  3. Vintage Oneida Truck

    Oneida Motor Truck Co. 1917-1923 - Oneida Mfg Co. - 1924-1928 - Oneida Truck Co. - 1928-1930 - Green Bay, Wisconsin Oneida is one of several American cars and trucks whose name is derived from American Indians, in this case a tribe which migrated from New York state to Wisconsin. The first Oneida trucks were made in four sizes from 1 to 3Y2-tons, all with 4-cylinder Continental engines, 3­speed Cotta transmissions and Timken worm drive. By 1919 a 5-tonner had been added to the range, and new components included Hinkley engines and Wisconsin axles. For a time Oneida produced an agricultural tractor, and also a 2-ton electric truck from 1920 to 1922. This was a cab-over design like most electrics of the time, with batteries suspended from sides of the frame. Financial difficulties caused two reorganizations of Oneida during the 1920s, but production continued on a small scale with trucks in the 1 to 5-ton classes and buses for 25, 30 and 42 passengers. Engines were Continental and Hinkley, and from 1927 onwards, Hercules. http://www.coachbuilt.com/bui/o/oneida_truck/oneida_truck.htm

  6. Selling Classic Cars on E Bay ?

    You have to handle the "cashier's check" as if it were a personal check. Either negotiate it at the very same institution that issued it, or wait until "it clears" and in that latter case make sure you know what your bank would say needs to happen before it is proven to have "cleared."

  8. Selling Classic Cars on E Bay ?

    I sold a car quite a while ago. A local came to look at it, said he really liked it and would bid. He bid low, outbid by someone who was in Las Vegas. He paid, then said he couldn't pick it up because the friend who said he'd give him a ride to get it changed his mind. Then I waited, he finally decided to send one of those discount haulers to get it. As soon as the local guy found out he got outbid he came right over and said he'd match the winning bid. Told him, too bad it doesn't work that way you should have bid at least $500 more. I thought it sold for less than it was worth but I wanted to get it done. Looks like you do not need to have PayPal. You do not need to accept a deposit. They recommend payment by cashiers check or cash in person. Or you can have a personal check and not release the vehicle until it clears. Fee is now $125 if it sells, and it looks like there is no listing fee and no fee if it does not sell. It used to be $40 to list plus another $40 if it sold. http://pages.ebay.com/help/sell/motorfees.html#vehicle-price Shipping and Payment *Shipping The buyer is responsible for vehicle pickup or shipping.Change this *Payment methods We recommend that vehicle sellers accept cashier's check or cash in person. *Full Payment Due * Accept deposit through PayPal (optional) *Item location

  13. Trailer Tires

    It looks like if that Corvair were towed backwards air would be directed under the rear bumper, causing some lift. but not symmetrical aerodynamically.
  14. How have you handled this situation ?

    I think meet at a branch of his bank, if there's one in your area. Bring pink slip and have him write you a personal check, cash it right there in his presence and hand over the pink slip to him. Your spouse drove the sale vehicle to the bank parking lot. And you deposit the money in your bank right across the street before there's a chance of you being robbed. Cash exchange in the driveway sounds too much like a large marijuana buy that could go wrong. What happens there is the money is handed over, the contraband is transferred, then the purchaser takes out a gun and leaves with both the money and the drugs.
