Re: Dec 7, 1941 Let us never forget

Robert/Texas. Did you know we had a German prisoner camp in northern NH named Camp Stark ? It housed about 250 men and they became quite friendly with the locals and did have reunions for a while....

Robert/Texas. I too was drafted on Dec. 6th, 1957. Was scheduled to go to Germany in tank core but last minute profile check being color blind kept me state side at Ft. Benning, Ga. for about 18...

Re: Old ford truck signage!

There used to be an electrical contractor in my area who had a sign on his truck that said, "call us to remove your shorts" ! I thought it was pretty neat.

Re: '35 / '36 restore

If that were mine and the cab was a 1935, (no radius at cowl, removable window frames etc) I would certainly do it up as a 35. Wire spoke wheels alone look sharp as opposed to the wide rims to me at...

Re: Running too warm

41ford1, this was one of my first thoughts. I recently installed a newly rebuilt distributor and it was set just a tad different than when I sent it down. I did just a slight advance thinking that...

Re: Running too warm

Re: Running too warm

Duh ! Tom, I just went down and looked and it is a 6 blade. Senile I guess ? Also the coolant level is down just enough to allow for expansion without blowing off. Teflon tape ? see that, I told...

Re: Running too warm

OK, going down the list here, there are no thermostats in this engine. After a 6 mile run it is pretty warm when I return home but I usually don't check to see how hot it really is. There is only a...

Re: Running too warm

Hard not to get excited when you see steam pouring out and coolant spewing on the ground after idle in my yard. Only happened one time and I let it cool down naturally before adding antifreeze and...

Running too warm

I know this issue has been talked about almost to death on here but I am disturbed by how warm my car is getting recently. I stuck a meat thermometer in the flow and saw over 200 and feel that is way...

Re: What does a 35-40 frame weigh?

I'll tell you they are pretty darned heavy when your walking backwards helping a fellow with one and you trip on a rock and the rear cross member comes down on your legs !

Re: WWII era

If you had heard the engine and several trips to the hanger with the "51" while up here once, you certainly would question your sanity about going up for a ride even if they gave you the $2200 bucks...

Sidevalve, beautiful aren't they ? They belong to the Collins foundation from Mass. I believe and fly into Laconia, N.H. every so many years. Ocasionally some one has $300 or so and gets a ride...

Re: Walt Duponts shop

So very happy for you and your wife John. Much better outcome than my wife who passed on in 1998 with the same issue. Most folks with that dreaded sickness are not so lucky. Glad she escaped the...
