  1. Always a great source of good foods in the Chocolate field north they are missing this year. What happened?
  2. Pre 1972 vehicles from New York and several other states have no titles. What they have is a 'Transferrable Registration' which looks like a registration card but has a place on the back for Transfer information. To get a PA Title with one of these you need a Bill of Sale (I've done several that were not notarized and can't say if it is required), and a tracing of the VIN. A photo will not work and the Notary will tell you you must get an Inspection Mechanic to verify the VIN, but the tracing always works. Fill out the normal Title request, pay the tax and fees and you should be done.
  3. I just received a flyer with new information on Clean Sweep Wiper Motors. Now run by Melissa Klein it is at 3395 NW Elm Ave, Redmond, OR 97756 541-410-5671 cleansweepwipers@gmail.com Carl
  4. I last spoke w/Keith in June of this year. His nephew had taken over the rebuild business and then it became"Clean Sweep Wiper Service by MD" in Redmond, OR Contact them at cleansweepwipers@gmail.com 541-410-5671. Carl
  5. I don't think it is/was offered, it is wi-fi that Hershey park uses to gather the feeds from their security cameras. Carl
  6. I've been attending this show since 1982. It was an excellent show for some of unusual makes of cars attending. The flea market along with crafters took up all the spaces at the fairgrounds. As attendance and vendors dropped off it went to a two day show from a Sunday only show. Now it is street rods and modern cars on Sat and antique cars on Sunday. On Sat the flea market is crowded tho the crafters have dropped off and there are not as many vendors as the old days. 75% of the vendors leave after Sat and the Sunday crowds are pretty sparse. If it's Flea market you want, go Sat. If you want to see some great older and unusual cars go Sunday. If you have the time do both days.
  7. Well MrEarl, I never knew that was there and it's usefulness is yet to be discovered. What I was referring to is the first sentence of a post in the thread. I'm not sure I made that clear as I referred to the topic and not the post in the thread. Again, You used to be able to hover over a post and read some of the first sentence to get the 'gist' of what the author was writing about. Now all you get is a repeat of the topic and the date which is already visible without hovering. CArl
  8. In the old version you could scroll the mouse over the topic and it would show the start of the first sentence. It helped with new topics in that you did not have to open the topic to get a 'flavor' as to what the author had to say. You could then move on or open the topic. This was a big help when DSL was running slow. Now what you get is a repeat of the topic already visible and the date which is also visible. Perhaps there is a way to change this in my controls, but I'm not aware of it. Carl
  9. I've used Iron Out to de-rust a Lincoln 430 Intake manifold that had been totally rusted from outside storage. I immersed the manifold in a plastic storage box with water and added the entire bottle of Iron Out (Not sure what the dilution should be for this use). I used a small cheap plastic pump (like would be used in a small fish tank) to circulate the solution. After 24 hours the manifold was rust free, and the solution held much of the rust in suspension. After drying, the manifold must be painted or otherwise protected as it will quickly rust again.
  10. A residual pressure check valve is located in the master cylinder.
  11. The black triangle only appears when you are logged in.
  12. Something along the same idea is a riv-nut, available in many sizes thru industrial hdwe distributors. Requires a special tool to set them correctly.
  13. Modern repair shops when welding on computer equipped cars have a device that is connected to the pos and neg battery terminals. The circuitry within it isolates current spikes from the electronics. It also keeps the computer memory alive instead of being lost if the battery were disconnected. The device goes by different trade names, none of which I can recall. Snap-on, Mac, and Cromwell tool distributors carry them.
  14. The yard in the Watertown NY area ( Brownville) was run by Eric Farr, an cantankerous gentleman if I ever knew one. He passed away several years ago, and from what I understand, the yard is being operated by his son who has a full time job and is there infrequently. A check of phone listings might be a place to start.
  15. Back in June, I took Peter's suggestion and called the phone number and got what I thought were results. In a few days I had a corrected plate for my HPOF Board and the assurances that everything had been corrected, until today, when the 2013 Winners list arrived as an insert to 'Antique Automobile'. There it was again, 1960 Ford. What can we do to make a PERMANENT correction for this and future listings?
