Re: General Jumbo

I am really enjoying this thread, and I love the garage photo from Rich B. I'd give my left nut (lugnut) for a set of those for my woodie wagon.

Re: My new ride.

That is one really beautiful wagon you have there. It is clear that all the effort put into the restoration has paid off! Enjoy it!

Re: 226 flathead Ignition timing

I just rotate the distributor to hit the mark on the crank pulley with the timing light. I have never gotten to know ignition timing really well, but I think you need to remove and plug the vaccuum...

Re: Stationary engines good cores for rebuild?

25 years ago I was given a welder with a 59ab type engine. I was told it looked like a US Navy unit common around the shipyards. It was trailer mounted with dual vertical straight pipes. I got it...

Re: 226 flathead Ignition timing

What year or model? The G was early and an H was later. I have an H and adjusting timing is rather normal by rotating the distributor. Does the G have it's distributor on the front of the timing...

Re: Notes on a roadster windshield

I have been told how salty it is, and have used it for outdoor tables in the past with stainless screws and 3m 5200 adhesive. Spendy , but so is this outdoor furniture :) I wish this was cypress, not...

Re: Notes on a roadster windshield

Thanks Pete! Did some more welding/grinding with 3/8" square stock in preparation of having some glass in this thing. The wind noise is really getting to me, and along with no floor over the...

Re: Notes on a roadster windshield

Thanks all for your suggestions and commentary. I'm so close to getting some plexiglass in but work and family stuff has me driving in the wind. Last week I put a piece of stainless trim up the...

Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck

Sounds like a great show! Mine comes up in about 2 weeks. I'm still wondering what vehicle to bring/haul with. Puget Sound antique tractor and machinery Association show at Lynden Wa. I once had 8...

Re: Ford Pickup and Early V8 Parts stolen in Portland on way to Wenatchee

Seattle and Portland are doing all they can to defund the police. If you live under a blue tarp and don't want to work you can steal up to 900 bucks worth of stuff and walk out of a store....

Re: Finally found a 34 Roadster

I collected hit n miss engines for quite a few years. Now I have two. One rare big one and a run of the mill small one. Somehow it works out just fine.....

Re: Notes on a roadster windshield

I agree with you Pete! I actually have a pet peeve about frame swaps that get it close but the hideous modern tilt steering column and wheel give it away at a glance. I was sort of hoping to keep the...

Re: 1 tonner bended front axle

38 was the first year of the tonner. King pins, front brakes etc all the same as a half ton pickup. If pickup was same as car, which I think is correct then hopefully axle will be an easy find. The...

Re: Notes on a roadster windshield

The marine units are just right. Funny, when this was still a 4 door landcruiser wagon, the wiper motor quit and had been discontinued by the dealer so I drilled a hole above the driver's side and...

Re: Notes on a roadster windshield

Well it's final (for now) and I'm liking how it looks. This is a tough vehicle to get in and out of on the driver's side. You have to crouch down to get your knees under the steering wheel from the...

It's been way too long though. Frank's pictures of those long Montana roads just draw me in.
