I'm off to jank the rear axle out of my 53 sedan. It is in the 50s and drizzling. Last weekend it was in the 70s and clear. Who ordered this weather? I want a refund!

I finally decided my old truck would be an F-2 or F-3 after lots of thought (and experience?). Dad had a very nice 47 1/2 ton pickup when I was a kid (in the 80s) with a heavy grill guard, heavy duty...

Well, all that means is you need to have a 50 truck and a 50 car.

That is a very nice offer. I'd take it but it will be a while before I need it. I think letting someone else who can use it now makes more sense.

Merry Christmas!

You have hubcaps! Those are hard to find. If I remember correctly the V8 marked ones are 1940 and older.

I like original and recommend the flathead. It won't be as powerful as the overhead, but it gets the job done.

The ebay transmission will not help. It looks like an early 60s passenger car transmission.

Do you mean spark control valve when you say flame arrester? You may have the later 2110 carb. Please post a picture of the carburetor.
