  1. Keiser31, Love your Dodge pickup; I had a Corvair, in that configuration. They are fun to drive intimeold
  2. I just want to weigh in on the "Original Question", Do "jumped timing chains really happen"? When I worked as an automotive technician; we often heard about jumped chains. I worked mostly on Ford, Mercury Lincoln products; but also all of the other makes. Some engines use timing gears that mesh together; rather than a chain and a crankshaft sprocket and camshaft sprocket or camshaft sprockets, depending on how many camshafts. Jumped timing happened almost always, in an engine that used gears rather that a chain and sprockets. Mostly because the camshaft gear was made of some sort of reinforced fiber. That fiber gear would have the teeth sheared off. The reason for fiber cam gears is most for noise reduction. I don't ever recall a camshaft chain slipping in the sprockets. I did see very loose chains; that had to affect engine timing greatly. The engine would still be in "time"; but very poor performance. Jumped Time was one of those phrases that just stuck. intimeold
  3. Yes, I have had similar occurrences happen to me basicly like that. Some details have been different. I end up frustrated, mad and feeling like I was used, by the seller. Mostly I think the seller the the "other buyer", are working together. This is a different scenario than you experienced; but I will never forget this one. One such case involved a 1936 Indian Chief motorcycle. No matter what I offered, cash in hand, right there at the motorcycle; it had to be approved by this other guy. Just for brevity, I will jump to the end. It took a while to get the story straight. Anyway the "other guy" owns the bike and after a few years the story came out that it was on a fraction what I offered. The original owner and I hit it off Very well, no problems at all. And she said the bike would be at home in my collection. But what happened I don't know. I never met the buyer until many years later. And he bragged he stole the bike. I am still pissed at that. Oh that buyer was a dealer in PA and I will never go into his place ever.

  5. OK, The Indian Motorcycle year 1946 Indian Chief Here is how I narrowed it down 1. Tank emblem was used on Chiefs, 4-cylinder, Sport Scouts, Scouts starting in 1942. When production started up after the war, in 1946, only the Chief was offered; so the earlier mentioned models were not made when this bike was new . The 1947 emblem is different. Also the front suspension shown, on the bike didn't start until 1946. Earlier bikes had a leaf spring suspension in front. 2. The front fender curves just a bit farther forward/downward at the front than the 1947. That is a 1946 front fender 3. The front fender light shown was used 1941-1946 4. That is a Chief engine, with cast oil pump shown 5. When production started up after the war, in 1946, only the Chief was offered; so the earlier mentioned models were not made when this bike was new 6. 1946, 1947, 1948 Chiefs have small differences, that determine the model year, I only mentioned a few that determine this is a 1946 There are a few period add-ons, such as the smaller lights on the front fender I bought my first Indian Chief in 1968, it was a black 1946, as the one shown intimeold
  6. I recall seeing such a bumper, with the H in the Diamond, at our shop when I was younger. Pretty sure it was off a Hudson, mid to late 20's may 1930 or so. Sorry I can't get it closer, but I feel that is the correct path, intimeold
