I think I learn something new just about every time I come here.....I may not need the tip at the time but we learn anyway......and pass it on to others.
Glad things worked out for you. The more we visit, the more we learn!!

I'd rather walk and carry a Chevy hub cap than ride in a Ferd.
I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you smile

Excellent point, Alvin. But let me add this -- The more we *share*, the more *others* learn.

Not a sermon, just a thought ... smile

I started hanging out on this site in 2010. As far as these old trucks are concerned, at that time, I was really good at taking stuff apart...
Fast forward to today, I have gained a vast knowledge of these trucks. I am now able to put stuff back together. ALL of the knowledge I have gained came from the selfless folks who have shared their knowledge on this site.

A teacher, but always an apprentice.
I agree. I think these thoughts every time I’m on. This is my internet time. This forum is a thing of beauty. I’m on other forums and they are terrible. Hard to navigate, abusive at times, buried threads; I could go on.

Thank you, Stovebolters. I couldn’t have done it without you.

I agree!! Very appreciative of all the help and education from you all, it has meant a lot in my quest to further understand my '53 that I've had since I was 14 (now 37). I've been hooked on these old trucks since I was a kid, and this site has been invaluable.

For the amount of stuff I have learned on this site, my truck and I will be in debt, a long time. Thanks Stovebolt.
