    I am finally preparing for my retirement project!!

    Wayne, I hope you bring it to Hershey. It will fit in nicely in the prototype class. You may want to add the correct period whitewalls.

    Terry, I bet you have mixed feelings about breaking your leg to get to see this series. Hope you heal soon.

    Radio Restoration

    I had my 61 Olds radio fixed by a friend in my antique radio club. One problem was the one transistor was bad. A replacement was $100, but a member had one he gave me for nothing. It is an AC Delco one, but there are equivalents available to it. I use an FM converter for FM.

    Just what he needs!

    British Standard Whitworth (BSW) is one of a number of imperial-unit-based screw thread standards which use the same hexagonal bolt head and nut sizes, the others being British Standard Fine thread (BSF) and British Standard Cycle. These three are collectively called Whitworth threads. Santa uses North Pole left twists if I remember correctly. He has to plug in thought as he runs at 330W.

    No smart phone but I added an app to my air compressor so I know which way to turn the wrench on when I plug it it.

    Wayne, I know it works for SAE and metric. However, what about us who have British cars that use Whitworth. Perhaps, there is an accessory to the wrench for those who need that British standard. I am very disappointed that you did not include the British version. I do have a left handed Monkey wrench for Whitworth nuts so they do make them. Very surprised about how little you know about tools. Why this year for Xmas, Santa is bringing me a left handed T-shirt for the Monkey wrench. All you have to do is ask Gloria. This way I will know which hand to use with which tool, instead of having to guess all the time. Don't even start me on screwdrivers, let alone pneumatic grinders. To top it off when I use lug wrenches I have to guess which shirt I have to wear and when I do late 40's Chrysler products I go nuts so I hope you are happy.

    Did Haggerty find that part yet for the 1901 Crosley rebuild?
  15. In Hemmings daily newsletter, they mention free vehicle kits for many Chevrolets, Cadilacs, and a few Oldsmobiles from the GM Heritage Center. They are in black and white but include sales literature, specifications, etc. E.G., for my 1968 Malibu, it has a 197 pages. The URL for it is: https://blog.hemmings.com/index.php/2016/10/12/free-vehicle-information-kits-for-many-chevrolets-and-cadillacs-and-a-few-oldsmobiles/?refer=news
