  1. I drove the '15 truck to downtown Flint for the Back to the Bricks car show. The show took up all of downtown Flint and then some. The picture is of our truck in front of the GM Factory One today with other Buicks from the Buick club. Here is the website for the building.
  2. If It Ain't One Thing It's Another - '39 Fuel Pump

    Standard practice. Drive it, break it, fix it, repeat.
  3. Airplanes

  4. 1926 Studebaker President front brake shoes

    Will the recent aggressive enforcement of asbestos coming into Australia have any affect on getting shoes from overseas? Wish I could help, but not a Studebaker guy.
  5. Henry Ford?

    Should be The Henry Ford/ Greenfield Village. I don't remember seeing that there but will look for it when I am there for The Old Car Festival the second weekend of September.
  6. Questions about an old car

    I hope to be one of them to tour when I can get my 1,000+ piece three dimensional puzzle put together. I keep telling my wife that it is a 1908 Buick and she just says OK and smiles. The reason I bought it is because I have friends that own pre '10 cars had have gone with them on tours. Fun group.
  7. Here is a video clip about showing big trucks at the Back to The Bricks in Flint this weekend. I like the part about bringing your own man cave with you.
  8. Off the vehicle spin balance is my preference. The reason is that if the tire is ever taken off the trailer it would need to be re-installed in the exact position or you would have an out of balance condition. On vehicle balancing works only if the tire is never taken off the vehicle. Tough if you rotate tires. Every rotate would require a rebalance of all wheels.

    Here is the picture from the Sunday Detroit Free Press.
  10. AC K10 spark plug --- modern equivalent

    Looks like a modern AC-45. Would need to see the insulator tip to be sure.
  11. compression results and spark plugs

    I had the same thing on my truck. I drained out all of the water, put in 4 gallons of regular household bleach and drove it about 6 hot/cold cycles on a hot Saturday. Drained all of the remaining bleach out of the engine and flushed real well with water for at least a 1/2 hour and filled it back up. Never had an overheating problem since.
  12. Cars That Made America

    I also have the DVD and have watched it several times. The other Larry
  13. I always have my trailer tires balanced. I do not want an unbalanced tire(s) to shake the trailer suspension apart along with the trailer and load.
  14. Square hole in garage floor

    The last time they were digging for him was a couple of years ago about 2 miles north of my house.
  15. Colored Pre-War Photos

    WOW, great pictures.
