Reunion Seminars? #1320377 Sun Aug 04 2019 03:22 PM

There has been a lot of behind the scene discussion and planning going on about the Reunion.
One of the topics is short tech seminars.
So we need some ideas on what folks want to learn about or demonstrate.
I'm planning on bringing the 48 Chevy "Chalk Board" and we can use it as a demo truck to play with.
Such as setting timing, points, spark plug gap, and an easy way to clean spark plugs.

Quote from John Milliman;
"George Capito (Wrenchbender) and Mike Wahl are great at this, too. Ask George what he'd like to teach this year. I've participated in both his carburetor and alternator rebuilding classes and thought they were excellently done.
Mike's demo of the fancy brake line flaring technology was fun, too".

We also have to mention Jerry (Hotrod Lincoln) also for the great "How to read a Mic" lesson he did a couple years ago.

Other past topics were anvils, more tool demos and we even had an old engine block one year, tore down and inspected.

What about topics for the fairer sex to discuss and share knowledge?
Knitting, sewing and hand made crafts. My wife Vicki is very talented in those areas. But she is rather shy.
Maybe Ron can do a talk about one of those topics?
Heck we could have a mini craft show. Bring something you made and proud of to show off. No sales though.

So give us your thoughts and ideas. This is a group participation event to meet, greet and learn.

Don

Got a tech topic I do want to do.
I have a potential Stovebolt buyer for the 48. But he is way up east and will have to ship it.
So truck pre buy inspection would fit right in.
What to look for when buying an old vehicle. We can really point out a lot of things with a group. Good and bad.
If I get permission to use his handle, It will let folks know who it is and they can PM him with their thoughts about the truck.
I will not reveal the quoted price to anyone. But suggested sell prices will be welcome.

Not too many buyers can get this type of evaluation.

You do a demo on how to tune duel carbs, Intarsia wood working and then one on needle pointing.

Show us your work.
Then you are a renaissance man.

You going to do the tape toss this year Ron?
You bring the tape, you throw them!!!

We will also have a Buckeye toss this year.
I bring them and Rusty Rod will toss them!

And it sounds like you will do a talk about two of the topics I mentioned.
Needle point and intarsia wood working?
At least bring a few examples of what you have made yourself.

More input needed!
Don

Thanks Ron for bringing this up.
We will have a few door prizes, but if folks want to add to the door prize drawing, you are more than welcome to bring something.
Keep in mind the kids and the fairer folks in our lives.

PM sent to Ron, he may be our MC this year?

Does anyone know enough about Hydrovac to discuss it? My two ton 6400 has one and I'd like to make sure it works.

I have never worked on a Hydrovac brake system.
But I bet Scott (48bigtrucks) will be happy to share his knowledge about how they work and repair procedures.
