Re: PNW Flathead Rebuilders

I also can vouch for Dave Tatum. Last time I stopped by his shop he was sitting on a stool setting valve lash. He has always been good to me with price and his old flying stories are worth the drive....

Re: 1940 3/4 ton pickup

And there is always Bob Selzam in NJ. His business was always called 'half ton fun', but really he has a LOT of parts for the big trucks as well. He dropped his phone number and just does online now,...

Re: 1940 3/4 ton pickup

But since you are in Conn. Chuck's trucks is the choice. He is a really good guy and knowledgeable on the bigger trucks. I agree you have a Dandy heavy duty truck on your hands. Green bwith envy btw.

Re: 39 big truck driveshaft removal

Info and definately parts for the big trucks are from 'Chuck's Trucks' in Conneticut. I have had quite a few pre war big fords, but have settled comfortably into the 42-47 with their juice brakes,...

Re: Fix it or leave it

This sage advice reminds me of the ferro-cement sailboat guys in the sixties/early seventies. 50' hull framed with rebar, stretch on the chicken wire. Gunnite swimming pool guys spray on the goop,...

Re: Covid excuse to play hookey

My customers read the New Yorker. This toyota bumper is something I want to keep from my old station wagon. The right hand 'bumberette' was missing so I fabbed one from a piece of light 4x4 angle....

Re: Covid up date....Charlie

I live in a fairly remote place but I find myself thinking about your twin sister and her husband Billy during my workday. We hope and pray for the very best outcome for both of them.

Re: Covid excuse to play hookey

Not so much of a fan of all the orange parts involved, so I busted out some gray primer and a brush this afternoon. Also a makeshift spare tire location and continue to work on the 'cab' ok,...

Re: Car wash bucket....

I am also past the age of hard alcohol. Ok, on a very rare occasion I buy a bottle of 'old Grandad', but it lasts a long time and I share it. Beer and wine is plenty powerful for me and I still gotta...

Re: Car wash bucket....

With all the tree pollen and mold in this rainy climate, I go straight for the ultra caustic automatic dishwasher stuff every spring when I was my rigs. Like a miracle, I swear.

Re: Covid excuse to play hookey
