Re: Beverly Hillbillies

More good news this morning when we turned over the half track motor for the first time in...uhhh...11-12 YEARS! Stuck valves on number 2 and number 6 cylinders. Flatheads are notorious for this. So, I redosed the cylinders, turned her over again so as to splash some MM oil up onto those valves and ...

Re: shorted out module

Likely there's going to be a problem in the guts of the thing BUT, I don't see evidence of high heat on the potting material. My inclination (since I am a notorious cheapskate) would be to carefully expose that wire to ensure it's not burned through and recoat it (remember that conversation we had r...

Re: Beverly Hillbillies

Happy to report that, after the big upheaval around here with the addition of the GTB to the stable, most of the odds and ends are finally finding new places to settle into. The 42GPW is now mostly put to bed and I'll soon be changing gears around here and getting back into the half track project. S...

Re: Beware of rebates!

I'd join your rant but mine is about hazmat fees for shipping paint. Also ridiculous.

Re: Chevy TUFI

Ever notice that in the late 50s-early 60s there was an unhealthy fascination with forward control and cars that go in the water? Weird.

Re: Beverly Hillbillies

The saga continues... My son - What's that smell? Me - That's 6AM, son. That's what you're smelling. My son - Eauwwww! That's disgusting! Me - Yes, yes it is . Would you rather go when it's really hot? My son - If it means getting enough sleep, then, Yes . Me - You can sleep when you're dead, son......

Re: Beverly Hillbillies

As hot as it has been, I think that's going to be the trend. I can stand 100-103 all day long with no dramas, but put me out in the sun in that temp...well, that's a non-starter for me. Having the half track out where I can work on it and be in the shade is a huge bonus. Tucked in under the tent the...

For that low price you can become 'part owner' of a MUTT.

Re: Beverly Hillbillies

I Am CURSED!! I went to complete a trade today and ended up with what is probably a CJ2A frame, completely stripped with only very minor problems commensurate with it's age (such as a rather raggedy battery tray) and another set of jeep axles both front and rear, and four jeep wheels with what used ...

Re: My daughter just left for basic training.

After graduation, I shook my daughter's hand and said, "I want to be the first one to say, Thank You For Your Service.

Poor thing. She started to cry.

Cheers,

Re: old car show at Hardees

Hey, IMHO Hardees isn't your friend but neither are they your enemy....and they don't owe you anything. I would like to remind you that the guy you are looking for is out there . Sadly, nowadays, the guard dogs are the ones who get the blame. Why? Because they are an easy target and nowadays everyon...

Re: Beverly Hillbillies

At the moment, I have the carburetor off. Need to run a new fuel line and will probably get a new fuel pump in the doing of it.

Re: Trailer for sale in arkansas

Original post was long ago but these types of trailers are always hitting the market. Keep your eyes and ears open. You'll find one, I'm sure of it.
