  1. Who is saying your readings are high? Whoever is testing your car may know a good mechanic., Any good parts store should be able to supply a converter and other parts you may need. The car is not so old that parts would be a problem. Please remember cheap and good usually do not come in the same package. You will be way ahead to spend a little extra and have it done right
  2. That is quite a find. Trucks are more tricky to date because they did not change styles as often as most cars. It looks to be about 1920. The title will have the exact year and model number and you can work from that info. Also there appears to be a data plate on the right side in front of the door that will have lots of info. Good luck and keep us informed. And thanks for the pictures,
  3. Looks a lot like a 1936 GMC to me.
  4. Wonder how much that thing weighs?
  5. Hope you can rescue it. Please keep us posted.
  6. Those are good engines. If it can be saved that is what I would do. Keep us updated on your progress.
  7. My last car was a Certified Used car. To me that is a great way to go. Mine was just under a year old with about 20,000 miles on it and came with a great warranty. Way less money than a new one and checked out and approved by the manufacturer. Only one issue with it and it was resolved quickly under warranty.
  8. I had a 46 Ford pickup with the 6. It was a beast. Good old truck.
  9. It may be a gas powered heater for the interior.. The hot air vent type heaters used on the early Corvairs were not great. They would produce heat, but also a lot of fumes. I have had several. There were aftermarket gas-powered units produced. I think this may be one. I do not know if there was a factory option available or not.
  10. am no expert by far, but it looks much more likely to be an industrial setup than automotive. Hopefully someone will be along to give a definite answer soon.
  11. When I began enjoying this forum years ago, I joined at that time. A few years later when I retired I did not renew my membership as I was cutting expences. I kept visiting the forum and occasionally contributing and nothing change. I was still welcome here and nothing was ever mentioned. A couple of weeks ago I saw Peters note about contributing or joining. Then I considered the benefits of associating and communicating with fellow car buffs. Where can you get this kind of enjoyment and information for less than $4.00 a month? I rejoined last week and consider it a well spent $40.00 considering the pleasure I gain from it. A couple of cups of coffee a month is all it costs. I do not have an antique car now and will not likely attend any events or meetings, but the small cost is well worth it to do my part to keep the forum healthy. If you are trying to renew an expired membership, just enter the new membership section. Your old info will be there.
  12. I still do not think the seller knows what he has. Some details are just wrong.. Surely whoever owns the car should know the difference between a manual and automatic transmission
  13. 1950's or 60's International. Possibly model R190. They did not change much year to year so this is my best guess. Neat find.
  14. Don't think he knows what he has. Looks like an automatic transmission to me and he advertises it as a standard. I am not sure I could trust his knowledge of the car.
  15. If you can not transfer it into your name, any money invested in it will not be a wise investment unless you are planning to use it for off road use only. The general rule is get a title first, then start fixing it. If it has been in the family that long, there should be a way to file for a lost title depending on the state you are in. As Tininadin stated above, it appears to be from the 40's.
