      IF you have to drop the steering column -it is one of the easier tasks to get under the dash

              Eldubb, your dog is getting impatient! He wants that rush of air going by his face so he can snork the air with his gums flapping making him look possessed!

                My current project is a 39 Ford truck cab that will be used as a photo booth, for the cab section, at a soon to open farm to table restaurant in the area. We'll make a bench seat for it, dummy up the steering column so it spins for the kids plus a lot of other cool stuff. The truck will be a bright yellow of some sort still to be determined. I've been doing a ton of repairs on this thing. Its had a very tough life. My boss already got the 30's John Deere done for them. Since its pink per the restaurant owners request, its now a Jane Deere! The tractor is already inside the building and will get joined by the truck when we are done with it. The soon to be fabled flatbed will double as a dining table.

                  I'm off the 39 Ford for now and back on a 50 Chevy 3100. Have been putting the HVAC together, instrument cluster mock up, rear bumper changes, figuring out a trailer hitch, get steering hooked up etc etc. Its on a TCI chassis w LS motor, 4l60e, 4 link, 4 wheel disc plus lots more. Tons of stuff to do on this one. Need to get stuff made and fitted up then take it down to bare frame and send components out for powder coat, paint etc. This coming week the shop is moving to a better location with more room. The boss has more people lining up to get stuff done so this will help in that endeavor. I'm having a great time working here on this type of work as I'm a gearhead through and through. Maybe someday there will be a real project coming through, aka MOPAR! LOL! Soon I'll be able to get cracking on my 65 since we are in the preliminary stages of garage design for here at home. I'll toss in one to look at. There is already a garage and deck on the house, the new stuff will be on the rh side. Can't wait!

                    Still plucking away on a 73 Duster BB build. Got the 470 at the Dyno shop should go on sometime this week. The 68 Runner needs a pinion seal and will get a cam swap later this winter/ spring.

                        Firstly it’s carb cleaner not starting fluid I’m spraying in the carb to get it to fire.

                        This is a link to the video of what I’m dealing with right now. This 73 Charger was put away at least 10 years ago maybe 13 in the same state I have it right now. I know it has a vacuum cap missing on the metering block. I just put the FBO ignition on it today hoping that it would just fire up but all I get is the stuttering. I think I’m gonna pull the distributor cap and check the gap. The fuel pump is currently not running as I pulled the fuel line off it to ensure I don’t get any garbage in it. Any other ideas what I should look for?

                        First thought --firing order and be sure your order is right for the rotation of rotor. Big block Mopar is counter clockwise........MO

                        Worked on my Mini Mopar today (2005 Sebring). Inspection station told me last year that my rear upper ball joints had play and needed replaced. He knows I do my own work so he passed it. Well I procrastinated for a year and got to it today.

                        I thought I was going to break the press. I had a strong bar and a piece of pipe on that. Three times it broke loose with a bam before it finally came out.

                        Two hours per side. I'm getting too old for this shit!

                          I have been cheating recently....got myself another project :D
                          Yep, just shooting myself in the other foot with more work hehe.
                          Anyway, an old famous Golf GTI G60. 1.8 4cyl. with the unique supercharger called G-lader. (160 HP)
                          They are getting rare, plan is to save the car from rust and bring back to an original state.
                          Engine is healthy, but these superchargers require a full overhaul around every 40.000 km which will be first job to make sure it does not blow up on me.
                          Other jobs will be rebuild all suspension and brakes, kill all the electrical gremlins and the final is that the car will need a full respray (same colour).

                          Sourcing parts for this makes me laugh though, when you are used to the prices for these Mopars this stuff is cheap!
