Spring is here!

If you are bringing the old truck out of winter storage, or up from the woods, be sure to check the Tech Tip for a few helpful hints.

If you have some work to do before you go cruising, be sure to check out what parts you need from American Classic Truck Parts. They still offer a 10% discount to Stovebolters.

Anyone know what years GM used the simple spring style hose clamps which require a special pair of pliers to install/remove? Carl

Jacked the Panel up and put a new seal on the automatic tranny shifter arm and replaced a bad headlight switch. The NEW front drums have always been a suspect for being out of round so I pulled them off tonight and will get them turned in the mornin

Fixy, are you sure that you can achieve full throttle with only one inch of pedal travel? Are you using the original bell crank and have it installed correctly? (I don't know if it is possible to instal it wrong.) Something isn't right. Carl

I also am in need of a headliner. I see on e bay that abs plastic ones come up but they are expensive and they are also one piece. If any one has tried one would be interesting to see how they like it. Otherwise the cardboard type with a coating on

Thanks! I didn't want to tear my 53's housing down to take more pictures. This is a big deal for those backyard mechanics who have been told to drill a hole in their thermostat but are scared to do it. No need with this one. It comes in 160 and 180 a

Alvin, They are calling for rain all weekend here. As you know, I'm still running Kansas plates, and as of today, they still haven't shown up. Mailed out on the 19th for a total of 6 miles to the mailbox in Kansas. Supposed to be coming from there UP

Well, okay.. Is there a downside to using them? I've been here for 16 years through hundreds of thermostat threads and you have never graced us with this rather interesting info. Typical, but not sure why you would deliberately keep this sort of info

If Hambone has not swapped out his engine yet. That would make a good practice run next weekend. Or we could kidnap the Presidential Limo next weekend and just do it. We can blame it on Hambone, he can take the heat. Don

This thermostat is like nothing I have seen. Rather than drilling your own 1/8" hole to allow for steam venting, it has what they call a jiggle pin valve. It's a 1/8" hole with a little cover over it that opens when any pressure is present.

There is a large knob on the dash attached to a metal cable that runs through the firewall, and attached to a lever on the transmission that turns another small auxiliary drive line. However, I do not know exactly what this is for. I may take it of
