Yep a flatty (sorry Marge, but you don't big ones, sorry).



I get such a kick out of the thought that I am driving around town every day with this flathead, this obsolete motor, still doing it's job.

If it is even still running. Buying a newer vehicle makes no financial sense.

On the other hand, We just have to have a place for those grand kids.

For me riding in the back was ok... but on the roof ........Now THAT was cool...
Grandpa said the wagon was full of tools and he didnt know where else to put me,I did put up a fuss at first and he got mad because I kept climbing down the windsheild before he could get going to fast so he had to tie me down but after he hit 30 mph he couldnt even tell I was up there............

Story #2
Grandpa went to the supermarket and set me on the roof to load the car up and forgot all about me up there.... when he got home I had this big grin on my face and wouldnt come down so he got his camera and took this picture...

Well Ok I made that one up too......but the pic is for real.... I look a little like that kid on TV,dont I? Oppie
Everybodys so worried about screwing up their kids but I turned out just fine

Temp gauge stopped working in the '56 Jimmy so I went trouble shooting while the charcoal was getting ready (had some ribs to cook) - - - anyhow, I was lucky cause it turned out to be a loose connection created by an incorrect nut size so after I located a nut (present company excluded) I tighten'er down and now gauge is working.

Also, got some feelers out for a set of seat covers that I can put on myself - - - - samples are supposed to be in the mail.

I know the feeling, Brian. My 235 sixer with the 2 one barrels, headers and flowmasters has fooled more than a few.

I wish I had the number of miles I rode in the back of my dad's 55 F-100 with a bale of hay or two, it would be a LOT. However, I am just fine with the laws on this issue. I think children belong in a seat with a belt.

So I took the 3 disease-el fuel injectors in to have them tested - 2 were pretty much pooched and the third was only so-so, so I told them to rebuild all 3.

That's the good news

AND I got the diesel compression tester from Horrible Fright and tried it out on that li'l 3 cyl Disease-el

#1 was 425 psi
#2 was 450
#3 was - well - er- ahem - OK, OK - it was approx ZERO!

(That's the not-so-good news)

(Wonder if I may have found a part of the problem?)

Not a lotta use even trying to do a "wet and dry" check - with one hole reading a bit less than 2/3 of the square root of nothing whatsoever, I'm going to have to go into the little guy anyway so I'll see what's up then.
