  1. Just noticed this when I got into my 99 Chevrolet Pickup.
  2. A couple of pictures would help to identify the year.
  3. I had a fuel problem on my 29 Chrysler that drove me crazy for a while. Several times I blew compressed air back in the line from the vacuum tank to the fuel tank. Back out on the road it would run out of fuel. I finally found a piece of rust in the brass fitting at the top of the tank that connects to the fuel line. It acted like a flapper valve to shut off the fuel flow while driving. It sounds like you could have a similar problem with a blockage in the line.
  4. Interesting article in Automotive News http://www.autonews.com/article/20180128/RETAIL03/180129778/
  5. Sounds like it is running out of fuel. Did you check the screen at the bottom of the float bowl?
  6. Just curious, were both tires on the same side of the car?
  7. Engine is black with silver head. Transmission is black.
  8. On Saturday the amount of cars seemed about 60% of the normal attendance. It did rain early but turned into a very nice day, but I can't believe the attendance was down due to the weather. The number of parts vendors seamed about 2/3 from last year and I did notice a lot more barbecue vendors as well. Still a nice show with a large number of pre-war cars in attendance.
  9. Speaking of car show fun, anyone going to Das Awkscht Fescht at Macungie tomorrow? Very nice show! I will be there with my 29 Chrysler.
  10. Price Reduced $10k or BO Must go! I am out of storage space!
  11. Working as a Flat Rate Tech in a Ford Dealership in the early seventies, I had a 72 Ford Station Wagon come in with a no heat from the heater complaint. While inspecting the heater components, I found the cable operated doors in the heater box would not move. After removing the heater box assembly and taking it apart, I found 6 Ignition Lock Cylinders with keys jammed into the open space in the heater box. Quality Job One! A while later I had a customer come in with a new LTD who said he wanted to check the tire pressure but could not find the valve stem. No problem just pull the wheel cover and guess what! No valve stem! When they mounted the tires on wheels at the factory the machine would shoot high pressure air between the tire bead and the rim to seat the beads on to the rim. I had to drill a hole in the rim to let the air out of the tire. Again Quality Job One! I also remember replacing a large number of camshafts in 2000cc Pinto engines as they wiped the lobes off the shafts.
  12. The canister is the supply tank for the master cylinder. I have only seen a couple for sale at the flea markets over the years.
  13. If you would like more detailed photos just let me know.
  14. Yes! And I should have said the stripes are silver, not gold. I hope that helps.
  15. Black background with a thin gold pinstripe around the gauges. This is from my Model 65 "unrestored".
  16. The T bucket is Ed Big Daddy Roth. Cool video! I wonder how tall the guy on the line is?
