    Failed Again! 1977 Seville

    Have you checked the plastic air intake 'accordian' for cracks? That could be affecting the air/fuel mixture.

    1981-1987 Motor's Auto Repair Manual

    How about $12.00 postpaid in USA? After the dust settles, I'll see about $7.00 for it, and you'll have a useful repair book.
  3. 1987 Motor's Auto Repair manual covers 1981-1987 American cars. Worn and dirty but complete and usable. You don't have to worry about keeping it clean! $15.00 postpaid by Media Mail in the USA.

    The decline of Sears

    The Sears near our house used to be a two-story 'anchor' store at one end of a large shopping mall. A few years ago, the upper floor was turned into a Primark clothing store. The remaining single-story Sears has 'loosely packed' inventory spread over a large area to give the illusion of a well-stocked selling floor. It's really a shame that the chain is going under slowly but surely. They already had the infrastructure to succeed as an internet retailer (catalogs, shipping, etc) but they fumbled it. Sears used to be a powerhouse retailer. Those days are gone. Back in the 1970's, JC Penney came out with a car battery that had a lifetime warranty. When they got out of the automotive business, Penney's had to pay other retailers to honor whatever battery warranties were left. Going forward, I suspect that retailers of Sears-derived brands like Craftsman will be required to honor the warranty of products bought at Sears.

    50's ? Plymouth hubcap?

    There were two sizes of this hubcap. The 9" version was for the Concord and the 10" version was for the Cambridge.

  10. FWIW, New York didn't issue titles until the 1973 model year. Older vehicles have a 'transferable registration' that can be signed-over to the next owner. New Jersey, on the other hand, titles all vehicles regardless of age. Sometimes the NJ Motor Vehicle Commission can be hard to deal with when it comes to out-of-state paperwork.....I've experienced it first-hand!
  11. I got this new top-of-the-line Walker 22363 muffler under warranty about 20 years ago and never put it on my car. It fits many GM A-bodies from 1983-92. If you go to walkerexhaust.com you can enter your year, body style , and engine to make sure this is the right one for your car. $30.00 picked-up in or near Freehold, NJ. If you want it shipped let me know your zip code and I'll figure out what it would cost. Thanks for looking! Harold
  12. PRICE DROP: $20.00 picked-up in Freehold.
  13. It's time for my Plymouth Bulletin magazines to find a new home. I've got most issues from # 140 (May/June 1983) to the present. Nearly all of them are in excellent condition, with a few having some wrinkles or shipping damage courtesy of the Post Office. I can fit 30 issues comfortably into a USPS Flat-Rate box. Send me a list and I'll include the ones you want if I have them. $20.00 per box, plus $13.65 for shipping (total $33.65). That works out to $1.12 each including postage, a great deal by anyone's standard!

  17. Here's a nice used (or maybe even NORS) 2-1/2" diameter glass taillight lens marked #329 for 1939 Chevrolet, 1937-1938 Oldsmobile, and 1939 Pontiac. $12.00 postpaid in the lower 48 States. Thanks for looking! Harold
  18. My ongoing quest to simplify and downsize keeps me looking for more places to run ads. I heard about Facebook Marketplace and was wondering if anyone here has had any experiences with it. All comments welcome. Thanks, Harold
  19. I think it was a 1940 Ford. There was one episode where the boys were going to the dump to get new fenders for Lumpy's car. Possibly the earliest Recycling Center ever mentioned on TV!
  20. I agree completely that free websites make their money by mining and selling personal data. It's only going to get worse as time goes on. My concern with Marketplace is that I don't want to publish my full name. I want to be in control of any interactions and transactions that take place. Since it's easy to get a home address from a name and city my personal security can be compromised. My usual routine with Craigslist is to meet the buyer in our local Best Buy parking lot. I don't know where they come from and they don't know where I come from. Anonymity is good. PS to Lebowski: I'm sure Fred would be proud of how Clarence turned out....
  21. Is there a way to post on Facebook Marketplace with an alias? I'm not too keen on posting using my real name.
  22. This 1993 manual explains the theory, servicing, and repair of automotive heating and air conditioning systems. Includes section on refrigerant capacity for American and foreign AC systems from the 1970's to the early 1990's. Good used condition with some wear. $10.00 postpaid in the lower 48 States.
