Shaking

When I start out there is a point on letting the clutch out there is a fairly bad shake. This at times shakes the entire car. If I start in second it is smooth and don't notice it in reverse.. I learned to drive in a '61 chevy 6 cly, 3 speed with overdrive and have driven standard trannys ever since...

Weeweechu

It's a romantic full moon, when Pedro said, "Hey, mamacita, let's do Weeweechu." Oh no, not now, let's look at the moon!" said Rosita. Oh, c'mon baby, let's you and I do Weeweechu. I love you and it's the perfect time," Pedro begged. "But I wanna just hold your hand and watch the moon." replied Rosi...

Glad to hear that!
We had the other 2 grandkids today all day. What fun :)

Mrs took our daughter the the ER last night. She has some kind of intesinal virus, not the flu.
Severe dehydration but with an IV and some meds doing better now. Home and getting cranky.

Typical for our daughter! LOL

I have a manual on CD for 46-54 plymouths which includes schematics for several models of radios with the cap values.

It is a PDF document and still haven't figured out how to post any of it here!

Tell me how to get a page saved and I will get it to you.

Back in the day I wanted to add an eight-track radio and an FM radio to my 49 Dodge. Even then, the aftermarket units were all 12 volt negative ground. So, i used a 6v to 12 v converter and electrically isolated it and the 8 track unit from the frame of the car. Worked perfectly. Much easier than c...

Re: 12v wiring

You just hit on why so many people convert to 12v on their old cars. It's not that it is so much better,it is just that so much stuff is only avaiable in 12v. It makes life easier when you are tring to make upgrades. Gerry Yea, finding that out way to fast :( May consider a 12V change someday just ...

Go to a motorcycle shop. The sell modules that will do what you want to do. This situation is commonly seen with custom bikes. There could be left and right dual filament marker lights, and a center brake light. You want directionals and all three lights to function as brake lights, so you add one ...
