  1. I've been through this three times on three different cars. On two out of three of the new senders the floats developed leaks....... One brass float and one plastic float. I was real happy........NOT....... 🤬
  2. My grandmother's 1961 Ford Falcon. A friend and his date road along too........
  3. Lucas Classic Tires has these https://www.lucasclassictires.com/34x4-1-2-Universal-Blackwall-82868L.htm Coker has these https://www.cokertire.com/catalogsearch/result/?q=34x4+1+2+firestone+non+skid+all+black
  4. Ask golfers, fishermen, campers, etc; how many of their expenses are recoverable....... Having fun can be as cheap or expensive as you want it to be........or run you into the poor house if you have no self control which, fortunately, you seem to have. I guess the real question is what's the price of making you happy........or not....... 😕
  5. In my family I'm the only one I can think of who was inflicted with the collector gene....... I've been through many collecting phases none of which had any relation to the other. My current, and LAST, are my cars which I'm done with too. I can't afford another collecting phase and, thankfully, I'm not only satisfied but happy with the three I have now.......
  6. You'd be amazed what the effect of a love tap to the hub will do. Anything to shock the hub will help it seat better.
  7. In my opinion Tim Conway and Harvey Korman were probably the best comedy team of all time. Neither one was great on their own but, as a team, they were golden. They were fortunate having teamed up with Carol Burnett so they could show their stuff. Even when they laughed at their own antics it made the audience laugh even more.......
  8. This video reminds of another featuring a couple of teenage boys who have just been introduced to an old fashioned dial telephone and challenged to use it. Having never seen one they figure it out in fairly short order. I gave them a lot of credit for figuring it out while others were making fun of them. I wonder how those who make fun would have fared in the same situation. I bet a majority of the fun makers couldn't find their rear ends with both hands so they'd never have figured it out. I'll wait for the first person who posts he/she knew it all at birth and never needed to learn anything........
  9. The rim was loose on mine which didn't do much to contribute to tight steering....... 😕 In order to tighten it I grabbed my jackknife and carved some wood wedges. I slopped up the holes in the rim with Elmer's Glue and drove in the wedges which did the trick. Sadly your rim is shot....... Keep an eye on ebay.
  10. Interesting you posted THAT one and, yes, I've seen it. I built this one for a friend........ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QNbc_kcRFqc
  11. I'm a long time fan of Hart Parr tractors (owned 7 of them) and Rumely tractors (owned 4). So my anagram is my first and last initials followed by hart and ending with ely.......
  12. The photos indicate a pretty nice car at a very fair price I think.
  13. Here are a couple for you to check out: Modern Forge Ellwood Group
  14. Use engine oil. The standpipe I have highlighted is the "gauge". Turn the hub upward and add oil oil through the pipe until oil runs out of the pipe when the standpipe is turned to the bottom.
  15. My sympathy to you on the loss of your dad. I watched my dad die from kidney failure. He went downhill fairly rapidly but the saving grace is he did not suffer which made the regression more tolerable. I fully understand the feeling of relief.
  16. Easter Monday here was fairly glorious for a change so I tackled a problem with a rear window in my '27 Model T Tudor. Last September I drove it to a tractor show on an uncommonly hot and humid day so I rolled down a rear window to get some air flow. When I got home no amount of pushing or pulling would budge it. Long story short is I got to the bottom of it Monday and found the trouble. The lower window lifter channel was "blown out" from rust which wedged it into the lifter mechanism. At any rate the weather was very sociable today so I finished the job and took it out for its first outing since early November....... 🤩 You can believe me or not but, as always, it started as if it had run yesterday.
  17. The same thing happened to mine. I happened to have an old double fuse holder so I removed the clips and soldered them to the fuse holder on the generator. https://www.elliottelectronicsupply.com/fuses-holders/fuse-holders-blocks-accessories/surface-mount-fuse-clip-for-agc-3ag-3ab-1-4-inch-diameter-fuses.html
  18. Last Monday I had my '59 Chevy out for the first time this year as it hit nearly 70º. On Wednesday we got about 8-9" of HEAVY wet snow so that was the end of that....... 😕
  19. Brooklyn Beer, I just realized HOW new you are to cars. Coming here and asking your questions is the best thing you could have done....... 👍
  20. ^ At that money you can fly out and look at it or pay someone to check it out for you. That the engine was professionally rebuilt is worth the trip alone.......
  21. If you don't check out this one sumting wong....... http://www.franklincar.org/forsale/
  22. You have it backward. The smaller generator pulley will make the generator turn faster......
  23. In his other post he states: 1931 Model A for sale in Lake Charles, LA.
  24. Even buying a "sorted" car is no guarantee that a rod won't start knocking, or worse, 1000 miles down the road.......
