  1. Well I see that Keiser31 answered you question on removing/replacing the engine thru the door with no problems. I myself went thru the side door as it was an option and available along with working with my engine puller. Not much more to add, good luck with whatever you decide to do. I know somewhere back in my thread I reference the Vintage_Vans site which could also provide more specific info on just these old vans. As far as stepping it up, not's not going to happen in the near future as I have had my hand full with other projects, maybe next year I'll get back into it. Scott...
  2. I totally agree that the car looks amazing, illusion accomplished for sure. Regarding the Canon camera, it may have a close-up setting that will make a major difference when taking near object pictures, my Canon G10 has that feature and makes a big difference, just a thought. Scott...
  3. Wow, looks amazing and what a great color when it's basically all together. You've made a lot of progress...
  4. Roger, I've followed since the beginning and replied early on your skills, I still always pretty much shake my head in amazement every time you post an update. I've run out of words to express my thoughts and often smile at the amount of talent you have shown while documenting this build thread. This is and will be one of the top threads I will always remember and am very happy that you did decide to post it here. I'll be disappointed when the build comes to an end as it is something that I and I'm sure many others will miss. Scott...
  5. Spent nearly 8 months in Bolton/Manchester UK over a two an a half years. Picked up a rental at the airport and didn't have any problems/issues. I became one of the drivers for others that came over while I was there. Scott...
  6. Roger, Still following along and will be here in the background until you finish. I too went out and viewed your video and it was amazing to watch. I also want to pass along that this is the first video that I'd taken the time to watch in at least 3 to 4 years and well worth it. Scott...
  7. Larry, It was good to finally have a chance to talk with you. I'm including the final pictures of the countershaft before mailing it out tomorrow so you will have an idea of what you will be expecting/receiving. The two shots of the countershaft were rotated to show you pretty much both side so that you can see that there are no chips or missing teeth. As I mentioned I'm including the shims that were used with this countershaft for what it may be worth. Scott... Countershaft Side #1... Countershaft side #2... In process of packing for shipment... All protected... Boxed and will ship tomorrow...
  8. I mentioned that I would provide an update. What I see is that Norton does not find any cookies to cleanup now. I do not have IE set to do clean up when exiting either. I did notice that there is a setting in IE11 that is set on with the install under the advance tab saying to send requests to not track, not sure if that too cuts back on cookies but I currently have no plans to change it. I was use to seeing 12 - 17 cookies being removed every time after I was on the internet and now the cleanup is 0. To bad that things can't continue to work better together. Again, I'll leave things the way that they are for now. I wish I had the knowledge of what's really happening under the covers and if I was shooting myself in the foot. Scott...
  9. Bob, Where things stand as of now is that it is working again, at least for now. What I did was to not allow IE11 to manage my cookies by using the advance setting and choosing to allow first party cookies and blocking third party cookies, no other options selected. I made this change this morning after reading your reply and was surprised to see that tonight I did not have to sign-in to the two sites that I frequent. Not sure if my choice is a good or bad thing but at least the problem with loosing my sign-on appears to be working. We'll see how this goes for a few days and I'll report back. Scott...
  10. Ok, I originally had a problem with my IE9, Windows 7 and Norton with the new forum software. I saw that others were running IE11 so I upgraded my IE to the 11 version. It at first looked like it solved all my problems, I could upload photos and could use the update thread flag again. What I found out though in short order was that I do not stay signed in even though I use the remember me when I sign in. As it turns out it is not just the AACA forum that this problem exist with but I'm asking any and all what I might try. I'm at a loss as to how to correct this issue and it only started with the upgrade to IE11, no changes to anything else. If anyone has any insight or suggestions as to what I might try to solve my problem please feel free to comment. Thanks, Scott...
  11. Test photo and test screen grab follow, all appears to be working now. For the record and those that may be interested I installed IE 11 and all is good again. Thanks Peter and Bob for their help on this. Scott... Test photo: Test screen grab: Ok, for some reason the screen grab does not save although it does let me paste it. Minor issue...
  12. Bob, I did send the photo copy of the screen grab that I did to show you what I see when I right click on the update thread flag. Peter posted it in my other reported problem on not being able to upload photos. If you or any one else can shed some light on what corrective actions might be taken to resolve I would be interedted in hearing them. Thanks, Scott...
  13. Every time I attempt to load a photo I get a generic message saying "There was a problem uploading the file". I've tried loading both photos I've loaded in the past and new photos. When time is available could this too be looked into? Scott...
  14. Bob, I've tried several ways to post a screen shot; tried just a screen grab with print screen which failed, then created a jpg picture file and it appears that I can not currently load photos either as I get a message saying that there was a problem loading the photo, tried another that I've post in the past and it too would not load.. So when the photo posting is solved I'll post a snapshot of what I get when I right click. Scott...
