  1. I'm thinking of converting my stock 6 volt system to a 12 volt on my '37 Special. Is this smart or is it not worth the effort?
  2. I am about to purchase a 49 Windsor and have a battery question. The current owner bought the car and purchased a new 6v battery assuming this was correct. The lights barely come on, blinkers won't work and the motor won't turn over. He stuck a 12v in there (and there is a ballast resistor) and everything works great and the car fires right up. Almost seems like a 12v conversion was done by someone else. How can I tell if a conversion was actually done? Seems like the car needs that 12v. If a conversion was not done, is it safe to continue to use the 12v battery since there is a ballast resistor? Thanks for the help.
  3. Does anyone know how to do this? I have the car in a rolling chassis and I've converted over to Wilwood Disc brakes all around. I need a master cylinder Thanks, Mark Vaughan
  4. Even though I am only 17, I have always wanted to build a car like the Hudson of the grapes of wrath, or the Olds of the beverly hillbillies, or any other car/truck of the sort. Now that I am getting closer to the age where it is possable, I was wondering If anybody has plans, or tips/tricks, photos, referances, links to websites... ANYTHING, that would help. I want to do it to a car, not as common or stereotypical as the model T or A ford ( great cars though). I was thinking of somthing that would stand out a little. I am not going to do it to a rare and valuble olds, but somthing like a Hudson, Chevrolet, or maby even a Buick or Dodge. Again, any help is appreciated.
  5. I want to change from automatic transmission to standard 4 speed w/ low,low. the transmission I'm being offered is from a 70 Chevy truck with a 327 V8 engine. My pickup is a 1973 short bed step side c10 with an inline 6. Other than the clutch assembly are there other things to modify, like the drive line, existing flywheel, are there converter kits, are there books on this subject or do you have first hand experience. etc. Please let me know. Thanks, Lance
  6. The Kanter brake kit could not be used as is and needed some modifications including a different new dual master. A special firewall mounting plate had to be made. Spacers needed modification. A number of other things. Anyway here's some pictures.
