  1. Ok see what I can do......somehow my son made this in black & white, how no clue..
  2. My rant here in Taxachussets. Registry crooks strike again. My car here regular plates which are hand me down. So this would be the 9 thousand registered vehicle in this state. My father said his father bought the first truck around here being a IH high wheeler with this plate number on it. So he said 1908 plus or minus maybe 1910. This number in all my days cherished by my father, he always said when I go do not loose it.....Ok , the "who cares number plates" are 20 or 30 dollars for passenger cars and they charge me $90 - they claim its a vanity plate which is BS. they should give me the thing or at least for the price of just a run of the mill number plate . Another case of dumb and dumber go to renew "antique" plate on Model T - go there they say plate no good????? My face turning red, blood pressure going up. I don't care, at my age I tell them you idiots issued said plates to me and you are conniving me to buy new or different ones. Not a case of money, its a case of principal to grind an old man as if I were some crook. And the fee is for a 2 cent sticker I can print on my computer. end result; I say boy, I shall see you in court & don't care how much it cost but I gonna fix you. So after he meowed with the supervisor I got the sticker. two hours sitting on a brick bench. Of course (after paid and said and deal done) flipped him the twig.... Old saying " do not mess with a old man he is likely to kill ya" nothing to lose he lived his life no government crook punk stops us seniors We Paid Our Dues
  3. I was watching Utube on the TV came upon street scenes of the 1940's. And right of the bat a 1933 Plymouth station wagon. I thought I once had the only one on the planet. A little different had chrome radiator shell chrome headlights defiantly not a PC. My mind forgets, was chrome shell a early version of a PD or was it PCXX all my 33's had black rad shell & chrome headlights PD bigger pic of the one we had.
  4. Buyer beware! one on ebay last summer $1200 Totally worthless without the control box and dimmer switch. My 59 Continental has it and is possessed!!!!!!!!!!!!
  5. I don't think Davids looking for tires, he is looking for a electric system thats 6v pos ground. I am looking too so far these units are all 12vt neg ground..
  6. Had one in a 1949 Ford company car.. The business end took up the whole trunk then it had a big Leece alternator too. I still dream about that car a grey 4dr, spotlight, overdrive ,super silent V8 . The phone was not used for blabbing like today only used for main office payroll use......
  7. Now come to think about this? I don't know how long there was a phone book in the mail box. Cable crooks too cheap to hand out phone books...What do you do? call assistance? then they charge for that. its a sick world...............................
  8. I drove my father crazy to test drive the all new Edsel, because if he did, I would get a new model. Mine is pink and cream color. Still have it still in the box. Somewhere in this very house.
  9. Thats shop 101 for freshmans in high school. They will do it free you supply the material. atleast around here..
  10. Looks export to me Wimbilton '6' another one of Walters ideas half Plymouth half Dodge half Chrysler.
  11. I remember even when quite new they went down the street like a hoping rabbit. Gas shocks not invented yet.......
  12. Just a little info on the above link. I recently sold a 1972 X265 Lhead 6. telltales= electronic ign, alternator and spin on oil filter made in Canada......sam
  13. Sounds like gummed up to me. Try lighter fluid then lube with light machine oil........Far as the ampmeter try jumping the two terminals > now does it charge? If not If I remember these have two coils probably cooked cause something got over loaded. Again if I remember the Hot + goes to one side and the Out + goes to a fuse I think being on the headlight switch. been a long time sam
  14. Ya guilty, big problem was these cars were a dime a dozen. I mean who wouldn't in their right mind would not buy a mint origional paint trunk back 36 Ford for 50 bucks, and my father said thats 50 bucks too much so he offered the dealer 15 dollars.............This pic taken around 1977/ I traded it even for a 1950 F8 Ford
  15. Still having dreams about this... as you see original all weather tires. I have reseached over and over so who built this. Not the common body company's . It had 6200 miles in 1960. Odd enought It said on the doors Briarway Estate Seekonk Mass. I googled that historical Seekonk with -0- results We got it in 1960. Then as a stupid teen we put a coupe body on it and the station wagon body down back went into history. My back hurts cause I'm still kickkin my self, but then I bought a mint PD 4dr $125 drove it to work until 1965 -where did that go. still have mint with folder operator manuals for those two . Now want one, aint gona happen if I can even find one...sam

    DANG!

    Plater I use takes pics of everything and I get a copy. No issues with that
  17. Don't put a thumb tack on the 70's! My father bought a new 1948 DeSoto Black Deluxe 4 dr. I thought this was very well built must have been fluid drive? I think. Anyway he trades that for a new Grey 1951 4dr DeSoto. Those days you go on a picnic or drive to some 200 mile day trip. Got into about 100 miles motor blew up came back on the hook. The dealer I think was good they said they will take it and for $50.00 more he got a new Sportsman top of the line. First week flat tire well the ole man has a shop and when tire was apart the tube said Ha Ha you need a patch? Next was a rattle around the left kick panel which rattled since day one but its only one week. The finding was a Coke bottle welded in there? Since then I believe in the built on Fridays or Monday theory. Then I grew up out of school, father got me a job in Raytheon. I was working on the Apollo project i'm like 19yrs . Things like this: a worker joker put locktite or glue in everybodys tool box locks so Monday was a wash out. The FBI got in here when the joker put super glue on toilet seats meaning the ambulance first aid and such. How these wire harnesses are made. In the cable dept. has asphalt floors in which the actual harness print was nailed to the floor, all breakouts have finish nails nailed in the floor, wire is strung throught nails so far good, but the joker 3M'ed the print to the floor so that print is for not. What this means prints are saved for the next print. The consuls we made were the actual ones in the "blockhouse" and those were the acutal ones that sent the men to the moon in 1969. So I was trusted to carry vent screens for the cousules each $3500 each made out of space titanium /gold and this joker ice picked them as I walked to the job, maybe 10 of them. Now I got to meet the big Brass like Army Navy Nasa. I can't say no more about this but this is what goes on in industry. 2017 I still may be investigated but I was not guilty per Military back then;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
  18. And if it does have power brakes before going crazy under the dash where the rod from the pedal goes into the booster try squirting some pb blaster or something and soak it. Thats where the actuator valve is and over time that white corrosion stiffens up the rod making it like pushing mud when pushing the pedal. Mine was at the point of seizure needing two feet to push the pedal down, then waiting for a slow slow return of the pedal. This is not a defect or engineering defect, its just a period of time thing. You have a nice truck maybe go thru the whole thing as mentioned Napa has all you need.....
  19. At my age no guarantee I wake up tomorrow.. Where I gotta go my 46 Ford V8 takes me there. Oh yea I need paint and interior but I have no rust no dings perfect stanless I use 20 50 racing oil 20 bucks a month for gas v/s $300 a mo. for F350 '460' so thats parked. Now I have a neighbor with Model A, 38 Plymouth ,41 Chev and more, the guys 10yrs older than me and has a nuclear meltdown if a fly lands on them. 80+ Yrs old no kids Hello Why? all are really nice then he has a mint 1960 Dodge Power wagon with plow= his driveway is 50 feet and he don't want snow flakes on it??? When this guy drops you all know whats going to happen. bottom line when I'm gone it ain't my problem!!
  20. Pretty sure its the same here in Ma. you cancel Ins. you suppose to return plates but It depends on how sacred the plate is. My case is a low digit hand me down plates from around 1903. I sold the vehicle it was on but kept very low limit insurance just renewing the same car I sold, because sooner or later the plate will go on something else. Here it also is 2 year renewal on plates So they were in my draw for a few yrs and now on a 46 Ford. Fact is you are dealing with idiots. They can't get threw the big hole in there heads that plates can be bought on ebay. My kid just got a set of Mass 1934 plates for his Ford all he did is run down the police station and have them run it >comes back no response fat -0- so they are good to go... In recap my plates have been at this residence since grandfather got rid of a horse and I just feel If I loose them when I drop dead, either my father or his father gonna give me a beaten...
  21. They say to squirt AT Fluid in while working the wiper arm back & forth to soften the paddle, then clean the valve assembly with brake cleaner. Vac tank a good thing but a check valve is a must. I use a Ford distrubutor check valve that they used in the 70's 80s (small green valve) something for emissions.. sam

    Heaters

    All I know is mine has a shut off valve on the right head. Picture of the heater will help. Is it a standard 3 door Ford heater ? Or some other generic - Allstate Arvin etc.....sam
  23. California politicians & law makers, don't they know we, us two legged creatures are only here temporary. So while we are here, why do they make life miserable? non detergent oil got nothing to do with anything. I'm told you can't even buy paint there or paint a car or have an old something in ya driveway. Offer me a million to live there NO : MOVE out of that dump, then kick it in the ocean...I've been there and there is nothing that gets my attention cause its all gone to a fake plastic place......Took a trip interior south holy smokes every body got a still junk in the yard a rockin on the porch with a shot gun in hand smokin a pipe with steaming whiskey ! your turn !
  24. Yes for 32 thru 53 valve guide pilot. They come up time to time on ebay. Or check with snap on ; Mine is snap on. Or find a pilot for your size guide, what these do is swell up the two piece guide so it doesn't fall out. Hard to ex plane but these are bigger than the valve stem but have split ends to swell when pushed in. sam
