  1. Past hour
  2. I tried to buy a better solid one at this year's Hershey with a few dents but no rust out at the bottom. $175. He would not budge on the price. To rich for my blood to then have to go $850 + to get it nickel plated. Then reattach the riveted painted brackets....He still had it on Saturday morning. I had bought a complete radiator and shell with some cut off flange pieces and some dents 3 years ago from the same vendor. The radiator was junk.
  3. All set with my car batteries now - everything has been disconnected... electricity is where I lack in knowledge ( home & vehicles ) I know little, but not enough.... Thanks for the input ! Steve
  4. I have a 1946 Series 41 Buick. It didn't ever have mud flaps but I would like to fit some to protect the new paintwork from stone chips. Can anyone advise me where I can get front and rear mud flaps to suit (either genuine Buick or generic)?
  5. There was one Drone that flew over Saturday. I was watching them from where I was parked in Row 10. Drones and some large RC Planes must be register with the FAA now with specific rules! The FAA prohibits Drones from flying over events such as ours, and to make matters worse this guy was flying low at the same time and the same air space as a small Cessna type private plane that was making passes and circling .
  6. You're welcome! Glad to share. Still more to come as I work toward front of show field.
  7. It looks to be a Model 52 sedan not a touring but it certainly has a canvas top.
  8. Like I said, Aussie English, 😀. Very wonderful to see and here! We excel in overthinking!
  9. working from the back of show field toward the front
  10. The number looks more like the engine number. Check on the engine block just behind the water pump.
  11. You blokes are over thinking it. +ve = positiVE -ve = negatiVE.
  12. As requested, the different types of MotoMeters
  13. It’s UK English for voltage. All the same thing.
  14. For 1930s and older vehicles, I do know that sticking contact points at the generator cut-out is not so unusual. If the points remain closed after the motor is turned off, the battery will short right through the generator to ground. A lot of current can pass through a 16G wire, and a fire is very likely.
  15. On a negative ground auto disconnecting the positive higher voltage terminal takes away the ability for electrons to flow. With no push from the higher voltage no current can flow. Disconnecting both terminals is the safest as is removing the battery altogether.
  16. I'm 68 years old and ever time I read something about electricity I understand less and will die knowing NOTHING. Up to this point in my life there was POSITIVE with + sign, and NEGATIVE with a - sign. What is (-ve) and (+ev) ?
  17. As we know unfortunately not always, but most times.
  18. In the past few days there have been about 50 new span accts created. All from Russia. I've banned them all. However, many of the now banned accts sent private messages marketing misc things. They've all been deleted. I've adjusted the spam setting even tighter to prevent this from happening in the future. This is the internet folks. Spam Happens. We were NOT hacked. NO personal information was accessed.
  19. An easy way to set total timing is to use a Snap-On MT2261 timing light . No marks needed except TDC. I use one on my 1929 . This may too simple .
  20. This photo was found in a letter dated 1914. Researching the writer finds her name registered in New York and owner of a Franklin Auto in that year. Can anyone verify that this auto is a Franklin? thanks in advance.
  21. I would like to purchase a LED rear tail kit and the mustang site that is suggested cost about $250 for 4 bulbs and a flasher. Is this about the same cost from other suppliers? Or is there another way to do it with a different flasher? I appreciate any suggestions.
