  1. Bob soon realized he should NOT have gone with his buddy's suggestion about putting helium in the front tire to get more traction....

And yes....it DOES look a lot like that guy.
  3. Sounds to me like a broken brake return spring, then. If it happens under all of those conditions, it will probably be inside the drum. I have had that happen to me. There could also be a brake shoe retainer clip that has come apart or fallen off into the drum. Does it happen to make the noise when you back up, too? If so, it is a good indication of the malady I have mentioned. I would definitely remove the drum and inspect the brakes.

  5. What a great group to bring out such treasures in the rain. Mine will be on the road again soon and then it will be rain or shine for me, too! On one tour my wife and I went on in our '31, there was rain, sun, sleet and snow.
  6. EGGE Machine in Santa Fe Springs, California. They have a website and most vintage engine rebuild parts.
  7. Sounds like a bad thrust washer or bushing or too low on fluid to me.

It is a great aid in timing the car and performing tasks requiring precise crankshaft orientation; but a word to the wise avoid starting the car with it. </div></div> If you learn the correct way to crank, it is safe. Just make a fist and push with the palm/knuck
  9. Nice photos....I like the beige 1930 Dodge convertible across the aisle from the blue Ford truck.
  10. Try Ken Burbach in Apple River, Illinois.....he LOVES those GS400s. This guy has his phone number....Galen at (608)326-6346.
  11. I think ply33 is correct...now that I look closer, it looks like 1933 Plymouth standard cap.
  12. Nice car on your profile.....looks a lot like mine.
  13. Google "Irv Bishco books". He has lots of stuff for Chrysler products or go to the Chrysler Museum in Auburn Hills, Michigan. For $45.00 you can get a "build sheet" that tells exactly how your car came when ordered.

  15. Here is an appraisal guide from 2004. The prices and values are probably about the same as today's.

The cam slave sprockets were attached to the cam via teeth and expansion of the camshaft and eventually the teeth would sheer off leaving the cam stationary. No so bad one says but this is an interference motor and piston to valve contact was inevitable. Ford's solution was to use Loctite on the sprockets but in the end, that didn't work. Even wo

Yes, some folks have no control over their dogs (or kids for that matter). If I had a nickel for every kid I have seen at a car show hopping up onto the running board of a nicely restored car (with their parent watching and doing nothing
  18. So we still don't know how many doors......
  19. That's a tough one.......unless the stuff that has been changed (Model A Ford front fenders, chopped top, suspensions) is still around and could be put back without more major alteration, you may be better off finishing the car as a rod. It is REALLY tough to re-raise the chopped top.
  20. Sometimes being piled into from the rear will screw up a power steering unit. It happened to my '67 Plymouth station wagon. Some girl was distracted and hit my parked wagon. The transmission and the power steering were never the same again, so I traded it for a (rough) 1929 Chrysler roadster.
  21. I like the Challenger. The Camaro is a little "puffy". The Camaro is a little more sinister looking. Even though the early 'Cuda and Challengers shared the same platform, it is still hard to compare an OLD 'Cuda with a NEW Challenger.
