  1. I'm surprised that GM didn't issue a service bulletin to cover their butts like they did with the 2007 Tahoe. When the motors started using oil... at 75,000 miles, GM issued a bulletin saying it was SUPPOSED to use 1.5 quarts of oil between changes. I was asked to join a class action suit. I gave the Tahoe LTX away. My friend put a motor in his 07 Avalanche. He couldn't keep oil in it. When the "gas saving" mode kicked in. The same cylinders would drop out. Hot, cold. Hot, cold. Hot, cold. The piston rings couldn't stand it. Thanks, GM. My whole family drives Toyotas. Bill H
  2. Check The Filling Station. They sell Chevrolet parts but they have the windshield kit. At least they did. Thats where I got mine for a 30 Chrysler CJ-6. Good luck. Thanks for the pictures and illistrations. Bill H
  3. A machine shop could possibly make and or reproduce the "snout". My spare transmission needs one also. I don't need it yet. Bill H
  4. So I'm not the only one. ALL the shows have that stupid guitar sound. No way you can call it music. Just noise. I can't stand to watch a whole lot of the shows. They all have it. Just irritating. Bill H
  5. When my 2007 Tahoe LTX started using oil..... General Motors put out a service bulletin saying that the V-8 was supposed to use 1 1/2 quarts of oil between changes. Nope.!! The problem was the gismo that cut out cylinders to save fuel. The same cylinders cut out / dropped out, time after time, which caused the SAME cylinders to go hot, cold, hot, cold, hot,cold which doesn't work with the rings on an internal combustion engine. I was contacted by a group to be part of a class action law suit. I didn't respond. I'm now the owner of a 2015 Land Cruiser, 2017 Tundra, 2019 4Runner and a 2008 Yaris. They owe me nothing. I used to and still do work hard for my money. I didn't grow up throwing it away. As they say. Beauty is only skin deep. Ugly is to the bone. No more General Motors vehicles for me. My Dad loved Fords. Thats why I was a mechanic ALL my life. I was union for 32 years in the pulp and paper industry. If you want to know about the good, the bad and the ugly. Talk to a person that drives a roll back, (wrecker), in a big city.
  6. For what its worth. My 30 Chrysler CJ 6 has a Delco Remy 714 Q starter. Bill H
  7. Cleaning out the garage. Delco Lovejoy lever action shocks. Believe are for a Model U Plymouth. Not sure. (1) #43140 R-6 1590C 3 D long arm. (1) #43139 R-8 1590A 3 C short arm with linkage. 100.00 plus shipping. For both. No leaks, no rust. Used. With original bolts, nuts, backing plates. Private Message Me
  8. Won't fit the Mini. Need to get rid of this. Fits 30 Model U. Presentable crank hole cover. Could stand a little polishing.
  9. Don't loose that crank hole cover. They don't exist. If they do exist, a 1930 crank hole cover is expensive. Bill H Thanks for the picture. from the side it looked like there was 3 bumpers. Good luck with your baby doll. Nice truck. Keep it as is.
  10. 30 Chrysler poking her head out of the garage door. Bill H
  11. I'm gonna need one for my 30 Chrysler CJ. Do ya think this would work?? Bill H
  12. Finnish or buy.?? If it goes on my trailer its over with. Nice truck. The market is all about trucks in North Carolina. Just saw a 63 short bed step side in nice shape go for 2500.00 as soon as it hit Facebook Yard Sales. . I need to learn how to copy and paste the cars I'm seeing come out into the sunshine or from in back of the barn. Must be drugs or hard times or too much Barrett Jackson. Bill H
  13. Goretex, rope. Probably 1/4 0r 5/16. I used to use it on anything from steam flanges to huge pump casings and oil reservoirs in Pulp and Papermaking / machines / and equipment. Has sticky tape on one side and flattens into a gasket. It is a white teflon type material. I have some 1/8 inch rope that I use for packing sink and outdoor water valves. Hope you find it. Good stuff. McMaster Carr has it. Bill H
  14. This is what I used. Fill to the top. 1930 CJ. Should be the same.
  15. My dream car. Broke my heart when I couldn't buy this one. Bill H
