  1. Looking for a good used/NOS/rebuilt 12V generator for use in converting my '52 Plymouth to 12V neg ground. Please email me at cmk1966 at hotmail dot com. I'm in Monroe, CT, so will very likely need it shipped unless you're close by. Thanks... Chris
  2. Got tired of seeing the '53 Chevy 3100 5 window just sit, so I pulled her out yesterday and drove her home, then did some errands today. Got about 10 "thumbs up" from other motorists, had the time of my life. Of course, it's loud as hell inside the cab, handles like a garbage truck with acceleration to match, but hey, if I wanted a sterile ride, I'd have taken my Nissan pickup. To many cars, too little time and money. Chris Monroe, CT
  3. <!-- google_ad_section_start -->Hello! This is my first post. I've been into older and muscle cars since i remember, and now finally own several, including a 64 Ford Galaxie and 2 Chevy trucks, a '53 1/2 ton and a '57 1/2 ton. I recently found a '46 Dodge 1/2 ton pickup that I'm interested in adding to the collection. It's originally from South Dakota, and it's about as rust-free as can be expected for a truck that's over 60 years old, and it appears to be all original. It's also running and registered, so will be able to test drive it to determine the condition of the brakes, etc. The owner was honest enough to tell me that there's a crack in the block. Although it's been sealed with block sealer and held for 2 years, I'd be looking to eventually replace the engine with another Dodge flat 6 if I bought the truck. On the bright side, the truck comes with another engine that turns and is 100% complete. The owner told me that it's out of another '46 truck, which is nice because I'd like to use an engine that's from 1946 or later truck. The numbers off the replacement are T112*121885. I've searched the net for over an hour, but have not been able to identify this engine's date of manufacture, although from what I can tell, the T112 indicates that the engine is a 218 ci. Dodge truck engine. Any way to confirm the year this engine was made? Thanks...
