  1. Wow, thank you Steve/ Jill, I thought interest in these older autos was supposed to be fading. Guess not!
  2. Thank you all for sharing your thoughts, I appreciate it.
  3. Thanks everyone, yes, I would just get another tranny and steering column from a later car. I’ve got a ‘41 Special but it’s too nice to part out. Where is Dave Tacheny from?
  4. I prefer a column shift transmission and am thinking about replacing the floor shift in my ‘38 Special with one from a later year. Other than the purists objecting, what problems would I encounter, if any?
  5. Sebastian Thank you very much for sharing your photos with everyone. Beautiful cars and beautiful scenery, I really enjoyed that. Tyler
  6. Auction results: 1919 Touring-12k 1923 School bus-10k '29 panel delivery-11800.00 '30 AA-10200.00 '30 Rs coupe-10200.00 '30Roadster-15800.00 '51 Plymouth-7800.00 '31 Victoria-13800.00 '56 T-Bird-16400.00 '52 Firetruck-f3-12400.00 '66 Belvedere-8400.00 '65 Corvair-6800.00 '65 Econoline-6000.00 Add 10% b.p. To all the above. Must be the economy really is good. I thought they realized very good prices for an auction. I'm only knowledgeable Ina few makes but I feel most of those cars brought very good
  7. Yes, just the socket Mr. Hinson. Would be great if you have one. What would you like for it? Thanks . Tyler
  8. Need to replace one of mine and don't see them in the catalog. So what's a fella to do, something else that will work? Tyler
  9. Thank you once again, Don. I would have thought the other way around. Glad I asked. Tyler
  10. Hopefully going to install the engine in the 38 Special today. Should the new engine mounts be installed in the car or on the engine? Either way, this does not look like it's going to go in without a struggle. Any advice from someone that's done this before would be great. Tyler
  11. Thanks, Don. I guess you shim until things are snug.
  12. Maybe I should have said "torque ball" I got a torque ball shim kit and new type of seal.
  13. Finally getting ready to install the rebuilt 248 in my '38 Special. How do you determine what is needed for shims on the torque tube? I can't seem to find that in the Manuel. Any other tips/ hints anyone can share on this procedure or anything to watch for? Really want to get this in right. Thanks . Tyler
