  1. So I went in to drop off a prepaid package to my local post office and I asked the postman if I could just stick small prepaid packages in my mailbox to ship instead of bringing into the post office. He replied "Do you trust you postman?" I thought it was a bit weird as I thought he was my postman.
  2. I think this a great looking truck and stopped by to check it out last week. Every panel is roached out (rusted holes, dented, and/or mangled). The seller has used the great trick of flat black paint over the rust which is rusting again. The top of the truck is also smashed up. This would be a lot of work and it looks to me that it is not worth the effort even if it was free which is a shame. I used to think they were rare but there are 4 of them on the market right now (a couple of auctions, craigslist, facebook). I would look for one that is closer to restorable condition as this one is a bit too far gone. And the trailer is not much better.
  3. I saw the car at Iola and it looks pretty good. The new owner is just a flipper with a poor attitude. I asked him for details and he would not open the hood or doors and he just pointed to the facebook page that really didn't say much. I would not ever do business with him which is a shame for the car. When you take a car to a huge car show with over 100,000 people walk past it and it still doesn't sell, I would be suspect. I heard the previous owner was very meticulous and loved it so much he did not want anyone to drive it. He just wanted it preserved. What a shame.
  4. I took this suggestion and was really impressed. Honest shop, quick return, good quality, good packaging, and prices were very reasonable. I considered doing it myself but he was more reasonable than buying the materials and tools. Great recommendation and will be using "The Clutch Doctor" again for future brake work needs.
  5. I appreciate the attempt to work with everyone's request, but it has too many clicks, too many disclaimers, too many instructions, etc. To me, it should be as simple as aaca.org, click forum, click cars for sale and there is the list. I sometimes use my cell phone to look thru the website and now I just have to keep scrolling and scrolling past all the instructions, separate categories (Mine/not mine), and sub-forums. I don't consider myself an old guy yet and fairly tech savvy, but all I want is the list (independent of car makes) because I enjoy just looking for certain vintage periods of time. Just looking for the simple life again.
  6. The new format is lousy compared to what was here before. I am more confused every time I have recently come to the site. It used to be simple and entertaining to look what was for sale in a simple list (car and parts separate). I get you are trying to appeased the clubs but honestly, they are joining your service and not the other way around. Make it simple again and many of us would appreciate it. If they really want to just look at Fords, tell them to search for "Ford for sale" in the search field and make them include that phrase in the description. The current format is not good.
  7. I am looking for a 1920's oval dash panel bezel like the one in the photo. I have been told that Studebaker's or Gardner's may have had these in the 1920's but I do not know for sure. If someone knows what it was originally used for, that would really help my search. Willing to pay $30 if you have an extra undamaged one. Send me a PM. Thanks
  8. Go to YouTube and search "Kissel Fuel" and a video from "Dave" in Arizona explains how the system works and how to repair the sender. Very informational.
  9. https://milwaukee.craigslist.org/cto/d/oak-creek-barn-finds-vehicles-pierce/7076358197.html Not mine, but it looks like it is good shape. Supposedly recently restored 6 years ago and was barn stored for the last 2 years. Looks like an estate sale. I like these cars but I don't need one at the moment so I am posting it to see if anyone has any interest.
  10. Are you reusing the old driveshaft or having one made? Also, when you paint the leaf springs, do you take them all apart, paint, and reassemble or can you just blast and paint them? Looks good so far.
  11. I had a question related to a Lycoming 1929 Kissel 8-95 Engine. Does anyone have any recommendations on how to go about finding or having made Con-rods and Pistons for the block. It appears to be a bit unique as the rods are aluminum ad 9.52" long, crank bore 2.125" and piston pin 0.754". The pistons are 2.875". Is there any interchange information out there? Also any recommendations on manufacturers to have them machined? Or any recommendations on potential suppliers of the internals?
  12. Did you ever find one? I am interested in one too.
  13. Any chance anyone has a #4790 Clum Ignition Switch? or a #10677 Light Switch? Late 1920's switches.
