The Jalopy Journal
I have been working on this 41 Oldsmobile since 1995, finally coming along now that I have retired.[ATTACH]
Are you using the reduced barrier hose for the air? Looks smaller than the stuff I am working with right now.
Yea, Headed over to celebrate my retirement. Official date, Aug 17, but taking off on Wednesday.
Going to Spokane this year?
There is one on Ebay right now.
Brian, Is there another intake seal under the retainer also, not just on top of it?
I'm still here, don't post much either. Looks like I am #175 Didn't know I was that low of a number. I do know I was on the old forum.
Keep up the good attitude, that seems to be the most important part of all.
That Ardun really sounded great.
It was white down here this morning after it had finally pretty much gone away.
Thanks Vic, That was kind of what I was looking for with the wires enclosed. One of the problems with living here in Helena is there's but only...
Steve, I found the following from Del City. They are flat and waterproof. I would hook them the same as the Maxi Fuse correct? I will keep...
Thanks Jim, not my first rodeo, but the biggest alternator I have ever used. Also a few more electronics than my other rides. I figure I will...
Minimize drop, and make sure I don't melt down. Also, the smaller wire is easier to route from the alt to the starter.
Steve, charging circuit question for you. I have a 140 amp alternator and a trunk mounted battery. I am using a maxi fuse near the starter.
Bob, you are for sure in my prayers. I have no doubt that I will see you on down the road over the next few years.
This one is a 39, you can tell by the center of the grill being higher than the end pieces.
I am pretty sure that the blue car above is a 42 Champion. At least the grill is a 42
That is a Champion, and stock, the entire grill was chrome, I was just after a bit different look.
The one I used to have. The color is off a bit, it is 1974 AMC Javelin fresh plum, closer to the rasberry color that GM painted some S10 pickups....
Brian, I was just given this link, have spend the last day reading everything. Great job on the posts, and the car is fantastic. Just a little...
Boones, I went out to your picture files, wow you take LOTS of nice pictures. How do you have time to even see the cars? I used to get pictures...
I did a google earth and I see the area that must be south of the entrance road that we use. That has not been open in past years, is that more...
They have expanded since I was there 2 years ago? Interesting, where did they expand into?
Highly observant of my as usual.
Thanks for the great pictures. Any idea what the car count was, look like it is down from a couple of years ago when I was last there. Next year...
Happened across this today and have a question or 2. I picked up a Sun 1115 a couple of years ago, and finally got a manual the other day. I...
Thanks for the GREAT pictures.
Thanks, I had forgotten on the headlight pigtail. Still would like to have one that I could mount (screw, etc) to a base plate.
