Re: Classics with matching trailers

My wife bought a "Canned Ham " she wants to restore but we are using our 57 Chevy pick-up to pull it. SHE said she wants to do the work but I have this feeling I know who gets to work on it. :-)

Re: A question for guys who understand auto electrics

An inexpensive Volt-Ohm meter would tell you very quickly if the alt is working. With it running , the voltage should be over 13+ volts. Not running, the meter will tell the battery voltage. I agree...

Re: pickup Bed Rack Plans

Nice looking pick-up. I like the green wheels. I too am putting on bed rails and was thinking of putting " G&N Farms" on it but am unsure of how.
