  6. Ted, When I put my truck up on stands the Rear stands go under the Rear End Housing and the front I use wood Blocks to go under the straight axle were it bolts to the leaf springs...….The truck sits just like it does on the ground only the tires are off the ground about an inch..... I can go thru the gears and hit the brakes and turn the front wheels during the winter months in the garage, instead of just parking it......It's Been working good for me all these years...... STEVE M
  7. Northern Michigan winters arrive usually by November and stays till the end of March, for winter I put my truck on stands in October then I can run it at least once a month thru the gears to keep the oils flowing, I have an exhaust hose I run out the garage door, it's kept in a climate control Log garage, I run a programable dehumidifier that controls the humidity until the temps get to 45 degrees for a high, that's what my furnace thermostat is set at 45 degrees unless I'm doing things in the garage then I turn the heat up, I use NON ETHONAL fuel and I keep a battery tender on the battery all year long.....So far so Good...:) Steve M
  8. Thanks Jack, Hopefully these parts can find a New home....:)
  9. Thanks for identifying these, they did come out of a Pontiac Cadillac dealership...
  10. Can someone tell me what Vehicle these parts are for? I believe one is a crank hole cover and the stainless bezels I'm not sure of, the bezel measures 7x 2 3/4 the crank cover 8 x 2 1/4 NO PART NUMBERS I've been going thru and inventorying my NOS parts I need to sell since I retired ...Thanks for any help ….STEVE M
  11. I look at it this way.....It took me 10 years to restore my truck, ( DONE in 2102) in that ten years I had to take 2- 401K loans to finish the truck, lots of hours finding parts, working on it in my garage and at the body shop, It's not a Rare Vehicle but it's my vehicle that I spent lots of hours on to get it to the level it is, I want to get the next 10 years with my restoration BACK enjoying showing the vehicle and keeping it to (THE END RESULTOF BEING FINISHED) and by doing that I will be trailering the 56 truck to AACA and VCCA shows for others to appreciate to see the 10 years I put into the restoration..... Showing my truck Since 2105, when I see others that trailer there vehicles to National AND Grand National events I know what it takes and appreciate what they go thru to keep there restorations to the Day it was finished. Maybe it would be easier to drive a Restoration that was (JUST BOUGHT WITH LOTS OF CASH or the car wash inherited) I don't know... I know there is another side to having an Older Vehicle the (DRIVING PART), because vehicles were made to be driven, I do miss that...I'm just not there with my truck yet until I feel the 10 year Restoration Burden is of my back, until then I will Trailer to Shows and enjoy the fruits of my labor ….then I can say (BEEN THERE DONE THAT)…..STEVE M
  12. 2004 Dodge Ram 2500 Cummins.....
  13. Good for you Terry......May you have Happier times ahead......My wife and I will be joining you with our retirement the end of this year....Can't wait...:)
  14. Keeping that Standard is the main reason in all of this from the beginning of the restoration to the Last AACA show the vehicle gets judged in.....The AACA shows TO ME, help take all the Headaches AWAY I went thru to restore our truck, We are finally enjoying what was accomplished in the restoration by sharing it with others that have the same passion in these old Vehicles, there is so much more I hope to explore by either doing Tours or just venturing out here locally, Oh and maybe judging also, I'm sure everyone in this club goes thru this with there restorations over time, I'm finding this out talking and watching others at every Meet.........:)
