posted at the time of WD's death:

It was a pleasure being corrected by WD after posting incorrect information. That's how I got to "meet" Warren - I often contacted/called him to help me "get it right" regarding information about stove bolt engines (WD ranked with Pre '68 Dave in his knowledge of these engines). As an off-shoot of our conversations, WD was the co-author (resource-person & editor) of these web pages.

A few years ago, I got to meet WD at the ATHS national truck show in Kansas. We decided to share a room and, in that way, we learned more about each other and about each other's family. What an interesting and knowledgeable man; and, what a gentleman. Warren paid for his share of the room by giving me misc NOS parts that he knew I needed (and it was very fair payment).

Warren would often contact me by phone or by email if he found a rare part that he thought I needed, or if he found a lead on a part that he thought I needed. We have spoken only a few times since his illness - I am greatly saddened but I will always remember WD with fond memories.

RIP, Warren

1954 3106 Carryall Suburban - part of the family for 50 years
1954 3104 5-window pickup w/Hydra-Matic - part of the family for 14 years
Z-series (54/55) GMC 350 (2-ton) COE - now part of Dave's family
- If you have to stomp on your foot-pedal starter, either you, or your starter, or your engine, has a problem.
- The 216 and early 235 engine are not "splash oilers" - this is a splash oiler.

That's a good post ... being corrected by WD. I think it is helpful. It happens around here enough and sometimes it's a "have you tried it this way?" kind of response.

That was great of him to work us the casting number information for your web site. (Oh, by the way Tim, your link doesn't work.)

Thanks for the posting.
