Re: shipping frustration

^^What JSeery said, it's just a crapshoot right now. I've done a LOT of waiting lately, but I don't hold it against anyone. A lot going on these days and it affects everything.

Re: 12 volt switch on 6 volts

Denny: Except some of the brand new switches from NAPA, I've gotten some real trash lately. I'm still a NAPA man, but I now look for better switches.

Re: Cubic inch question

It would take me 10 years to understand why you square the bore measurement.

Re: Yup...It WILL Turn-Over!

Re: king pin replace

It wouldn't occur to me to buy new spindles, I like fixing old stuff. Experts will be along soon, but if you change the carb you'll also be changing the distributor. If it's stock now, that is.

Re: Pop-up Adds at Bottom of Screen

I hate this. At least it could be something that didn't flash and change constantly.

Re: aviation gas

If I ever knew just what JP4 was, I guess I've forgotten. Besides running it in the helicopters, we used it to heat c-rations and in our homemade bunker stove. Always did think it burned pretty good.

Re: starter button

Make sure it's grounded real clean to the dashboard metal. Some of the hard to push problem could be to make that ground.

Re: To those who've been there, original harness, am I fighting a loosing battle?

I like to buy the stuff from Brillman and make those big fat 00 cables, too.

And plug wires: Packard 440 and nice terminals.

Re: King Pins Anyone in MN that can do them

13/16ths maybe. I wanted to buy a reamer, but couldn't find one that would guide off of the other side of the spindle for a price I wanted to pay. Did the probably smart thing and took it to the...

Re: Positive Ground wiring situation

The way you first phrased that question makes it sound like you have it correct? You hooked his positive cable to the pos of battery, etc. Or what?

Re: 46 Pickup Kingpin Shims Where?

Thanks a lot, everyone. It's sure fun having all these new, shiny little parts to mess with. Spring eye bushings, shackle bolts, shackles, kingpins, etc.
