    Do not use any of the foam type padding. They will dry out and turn to powder when exposed to sunlight.
  4. Much thanks to Rick for his work effort. This is the stuff that gives a good history base for the hobby. These invoices can be downloaded to PDF files which are much more accessible for research.
  5. My base is intact. I feel fortunate. I believe there is a bushing that can be replaced but will not attempt without information required to do it. Still looking for information.
  6. While checking my distributor on my DA-6 noticed heavy grease buildup around the centrifugal weights. This could be my problem while using my accelerator. The engine stalls going from idle. Is there any reference material on these pot metal distributors? They look pretty fragile to rebuild?
  7. They served well. ”Ashes to ashes and dust to dust”
  8. The attached article titled “Van Ness Auto Row” may be of interest. Van Ness is a street In San Francisco that had many car dealerships. Lots of automotive history. This photo in the article. http://ohp.parks.ca.gov/pages/1054/files/van%20ness%20auto%20row.pdf
  9. This is dealership that is on my other build card. J E French had many dealers in bay area of San Francisco.
  10. Thanks for your information. This will be an addition to my history of this truck. This area is known as a farming and mining community. After I Goggled mapped this address it appears the building has been replaced with a motel.
  11. Is there a list of Dodge dealers in early 30’s? I got my build card for my truck and it states the truck was built in Stockton and delivered to “Iew and Harriman” in Elko Nev. Any information on this dealer is appreciated.
  12. What ever became of the HAYES TRUCK COLLECTION that was stored in Woodland CA? Last I heard it was moved to Reno to be part of car museum there.
  13. I attempted to make a bid on e-bay and found a note “Use your Facebook “. Use unable to get into my account. Ended up with a cyber connection to India and an attempt to set my password. I was unable to set my account password. I do not have a FACE book account and do not plan on getting one. With all this technology who knows what else will be used in the future. We already have Instagram. My grandsons do not even use Facebook any more and prefers Instagram. We still have telephones.
  14. FOUND THIS ON “SMOKE STACK” WEB SITE. THIS IS NOT A 29 DB AS STATED. IT APPEARS TO BE THE ‘“F” SERIES WITH A 4CLY ENGINE. https://www.enginads.com/classifieds/showproduct.php/product/162553/cat/42
