  1. Anyone know where to find a 1/2" dipstick tube

    If the tube that you buy is a little loose in the block, place a round shaft or 7/16' bolt in the end and hammer it on top of your vise to expand it. (hitting the sides will expand the dia. by thinning the wall thickness) Or you could add soldier to the outside and file to size. Leave the very end a little small in order to start it into the engine. Have you thought about copper tubing?

  3. preservation - Buffing Patina

    Quote from Jack M "That looks fun." Thank you, It really is a very nice riding car. I lengthened it about 4' and the long wheel base is smooth. It drives just like you are riding in an easy chair without a care in the world. You can look down at the road right beside you and it doesn't feel like you are in a car. On another note, I hesitated to post the 38 Buick because I thought some self righteous person would shoot it down. And I really hesitated on posting the Ferio, however I was surprised that it was accepted so well.It is so nice to know that many people here have different tastes in cars. This site is the best one that I read every day, The post are written well and received by others in a gracious manner. Thanks to everyone who posts here for an entertaining and informative site.

    The 39 Buick uses a chain drive in the wiper towers and they broke after I spent too much time trying to get them to work, so I installed 2 elect wipers on the roof.

    I achieved the rust on my new body panels on my 38 Buick by spraying stright bleach on them.

    Does it really matter if the paint is missing. There are a lot of bald headed men on this site!

    I used nothing but WD40 0n this car. This is what it looked like when I bought it and when I finished getting it roadworthy after the WD40
  10. Did anyone get any snow.. ??

    Now that's a decent size toy box. What made the large tire tracks in the snow? They look like turf tires on a tractor. I just put a $400 set of chains on my tractor, haven't had the chance to try it out yet.
  11. Flat Towing vs. Dolly Towing

    Don't forget that you can not back up a tow dolly more than 5' or so. I managed to do it for about 30' once but it took several tries.
  12. Winter Driving Stories

    I love snow! I have always played in the snow with every car that I have owned. Once I drove in 3' snow until I could no longer go. The under side of the hood imprint in snow was all I could see when I opened the hood to see why it quit! It was packed completely in snow all the way up to the cowl. Did I say that I love snow? (:-)
  13. Tesla Truck Purchasers to receive $75,000 from Government

    You can buy baseboard oil fired heat for motorhomes why not trucks. Ps, they already have small internal combustion units in trucks that keep the batteries up and the cab temperature nice and cosy when you are not driving.

  15. I have a hitch just like that, although I never knew it was for a hitch as the ball was not on it. I keep it in my metal stockpile for when I need a curved piece of steel.
