Someone on the 61-79 list said the parade was at 12 this time.
Don't know if its fact or not. Even so, we can still have a
get together for lunch.

Thought some of you might find this interesting. Looks like
theres a new giant in the automotive industry.

This came from an email from The Car Connection.

- ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Itís a Done Deal! The world now welcomes a New Auto Giant - DaimlerChrysler.
Details of the merger between Chrysler Corp. and Daimler-Benz were announced
this morning in London by Chrysler Chairman Robert J. Eaton and Daimler-Benz
Chairman Juergen E. Schrempp. The transaction, valued at $92 billion, is the
largest industrial merger ever consummated. The new firm, DaimlerChrysler will
rank No. 5 among world auto makers, behind General Motors, Ford, Toyota and
Volkswagen. Catch a brief summary of the news conference, plus quotes from the
two chairmen, later today. Keep returning to our site, as new material will
be posted continuously throughout the day and into the weekend.

From: Gary Callahan

Please cc all replies to him! Thanks.

I live in southern California and have been a member of this list for
over six months now. I have enjoyed it very much. I have posted
questions and replied to other postings. I have an idea I'd like to put
forth for concideration. I think it would be great fun to get together
with other members of this list for a weekend outing. I think we could
pick one of the trips from Harry Lewellyn's "glovebox" book on backroad
trips in southern California or if anyone knows of another good day trip
in the area. I think it would be best to limit it to a one-day event
for now. We could all meet at a predetermined location, drive the
scenic backroads to a nice spot for a potluck lunch, then home a
different route. Let me know what you all think of this idea. After
all the Jeep owners have their Jeep Jamboree. Why can't we have a
gathering as well. Send (or post) your thoughts to me soon, the summer
will be over before you know it. For quickest response reply to my
e-mail at work.

I think this is a great idea! How about we all meet in Edmonton Canada
later this summer. It's just a short trip from the US. For those of you
that want to meet this month, perhaps we could even take in an Edmonton /
Dallas hockey game! Opps. Sorry. All tickets are gone.

Steve,

I built the N7806 Reg. and installed it in my '53 F100. It produces a

rock solid 6V. However a fully charged 6V system should be close to
7V. I think my fuel gauge reads low. I think an adjustable regulator

would be a better choice.

Rich, I don't have a scanner to post pictures, but I do have some. Maybe I'll
ask Don Neighbors if he has acess to one and if he does I'll post the pictures
that I have. I didn't take very many in the building stage but I'll include
what I can find.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Re: Mono Leaf springs

Hello again to all,
First i want to thank you all for such a great information resource. If it
wasn't for this list my six year old would probably have the cherry GMC that
was for sale next door. (Thank my Higher Power for that one )
I have a quick Question for thoughts. Has anyone tried / experienced /
known anyone / etc. that has used the mono leaf springs? I want to keep my
'54 as close to original as possible but.......... I want to lose a few inches
off the height. The 223 six is almost finished with its rebuild and I'm
looking into the future for the next step. Let's hear any debates, cuz I'm
still open to thoughts.

Thanks,
Conor

No, there isn't a 7807. And You can buy adjustable regulators...
However, the 7806 is easily adjusted if desired. (-:

If You take a 1N4002 diode and insert it between the ground lead of
the regulator and system ground, it will fool the regulator into putting
out 6.6 volts instead of 6 volts. If You stack 2 diodes in series it will
raise the output voltage to 7.2 volts. 3 diodes would give 7.8volts...
The diodes are available at radio shack, $.49 for 2 pcs.

*PLEASE NOTE* If you use the diodes in series with the ground lead, You MUST
use insulating hardware to keep the case of the regulator from being grounded
to the heatsink (or anything else).

I put the circuit for a 6.6 volt regulator up at:
