  1. I had to smile when I looked at the tractor trailer on the left. It has been a long time since I saw sanders on the rear axle of a truck. Dave
  2. I bought a new 67 396 SS Chevelle before I left for overseas. After I returned from SEA I bought a 67 427 Corvette Convertible. It has been a huge rollercoaster of muscle cars and Corvettes ever since.
  3. Wanted windshield wiper control switch for 1956 and 1957 Corvette. The cable length must be 35" Thanks, Dave Gray gray6363@gmail.com
  4. You don't ever want to work on the engine of that truck. one head under the hood, one head under the firewall and one head inside the cab. All that and the engine sits at a 14 degree tilt, making it even more fun if you have to remove or install the engine. Not the most user friendly truck ever built. Dave Assuming it is an in line 855 CI cummins. if not, it may even be harder.
  5. I have a soft spot for old Reos, Diamond Ts and Diamond Reos. I was a mechanic for several Diamond Reo dealers in the 70s and worked on many of these trucks. They were real workhorses.
  6. This is about right. Not a very tough job. If the car is still equipped with an underneath exhaust system, this can be as time consuming to remove than the actual clutch job. Small block and big blocks are no different in difficulty. I have done many of these jobs on midyears and it is not that complicated, Dave
  7. I watched them fly over on 2 different days. I agree with making it a tradition. It was wonderful to see the skillful demonstration. Dave
  8. I came with several others from the AACA museum in Hershey. We brought the 1928 Sprint car and the Datsun 280Z from our collection. Sorry, I did not get any photos. I was too busy looking at the beautiful cars and visiting with other participants and spectators. Great show.
  9. Kudos to the entire staff of Hemmings Motor news for the fantastic job that they did in organizing and conducting this show. The wide variety of cars made sure that there were interesting cars for all spectators. This is the first year that I have gone, but I doubt that It will be the last. Dave Gray Mechanicsburg, Pa.

  12. Corvette did not use these bars till about 1958? Of course they can be added to any C1. Is this going to be a race car? If not, I have used slapper bars under the springs and they work great to prevent spring wrap.. Dave

  15. Does anyone know the inner bore sizes of the brake wheel cylinders on a 1929 Plymouth coupe? Some of the replacement cylinders list 1 1/4" for the front and rear, but this seems too large to me. Thanks, Dave
