  1. I also have a few of those, "Black Handle Screwdrivers',; that have failed. They turned, to the color white and fell apart. I have all types of screwdrivers, and the handles usually last decades. But not the black handle Snap-On's. intimeold
  2. I just read the owner's original ad, on Craigslist: In there he states the V-8 engine is a 360. Well there wasn't an option for the 360 engine in that car, in 1978. The engine options were 351M, 400, and 460. The 351M is basically the same as the 400 engine. Shorter stroke and different pistons. Ford used the 351M name after they dropped the Cleveland name. This engine bares no resemblance to the 351 Windsor engine. All of these engines are torque monsters; well suited to this size of car. intimeold
  3. I am only going to touch on one difference in the two types of air compressors currently sold to home owners and small shops. Noise: This quote came out of another forum; but applies here. I don't know what study they cited. "Air compressors can get up to 70-90 decibels loud – the average conversation is about 60 decibels, oil-less air compressors running at full capacity and you'll definitely have a noise problem". From my own experience, no fancy study just my shop. Every oil-Less air compressor that I tried was louder than any new, used, antique, air co
  4. Gary F, Good try, and an orphan; so close
  5. I think the hint, helped some. We had fun with that one. intimeold

  7. No, not an Olds. Hint! The only thing this make of automobile has with Oldsmobile; is that both makes are orphans. I'll send you a PM; don't want to spoil the hunt for anybody still chasing this
  8. Being Top Heavy, you should be really careful with this one. Thank for posting this. intimeold
  9. Here in the mountains of PA; some of the Hot-Rod Diesel pick-ups have big stacks;; to Roll coal as they say. But I have never seen a bark covered stack before!
  10. Central PA Weather 02-18-2021 I have about 28 inches of snow in the fields right now. A lot of packing has taken place; and not much melting. intimeold
  11. Dale was always, friendly and enjoyable to talk with; when I saw him at the Antique motorcycle meets. A Great Guy. intimeold
  12. The third picture, of the pic of the rear of the white car, brought back memory's. I haven't seen one for many years. As a young pup, I actually rode in one of those cars. I remember being amazed at how different everything, about that car was. How many recognize, those tail lights? intimeold
  13. My version of the answer to that question would be, something like this; brakes that have "No power Assistance to Actuate the Braking Force, to the master cylinder or at the master cylinder "Thus making the pedal easier to depress, to increase braking pressure. After I study my words a bit; I may want to tweak that statement. I'll go with this for now. intimeold
  14. OH MY GAWD, I never knew this car was made!
