Re: Can you help with this? Tool related

Google “3M Roloc Mandrel”. Came up with a lot of hits.

Re: I Need Photos - Electric Windshield Wiper

Check out the electric wipers offered by Newport Engineering. They fit and work perfectly. That’s what I have on my ‘31 pickup.

Re: Windshield Wiper Conversion

My '31 Bud Cab Pickup came to me with a hand wiper. The rubber was completely rotted so I bought a replacement from one of the vendors. That didn't work either.

Re: What do I need to do to get a reliable engine?

Ron Kelley is in Royce City. I have one of his engines in my pickup. I have no qualms about taking off on a trip of a thousand miles or more.
