So long story short (some of you know it) but Dad wrecked his hot rod and I settled with State Farm and got him a new one. Bought it right here in the HAMB Classifieds. Killer, roller 32 Ford Three Window Coupe. All we had to do was drop the wild little 327 I had on the stand in it and he would be back on the road (...best laid plans of mice and men)! After several stupid issues and having the engine and trans in and out 4 times in 4 "freakin" days it was finally on the road. It ran like a banshee and looked awesome (but you know there is a but coming right?) It had a strange ringing noise when it was running down the road. It sounded like it was dragging a chain on the ground. It would start with a jingle and then work its way to a ringing sound. Sometimes in low, sometimes in high, there seemed to be no pattern to help explain the noise. I laid under the crazy thing for two days: tapping things, shaking things etc. I put it on jack stands and ran it but could not duplicate the noise. Then we pulled out of the driveway and there it was again. From the cab of the car it sounds like it was coming from the rear. After pulling the axles and center section and finding nothing suspicious etc. we put it all back together. But no sooner than we hit the road again, sure enough....ring ring! We were doing about 20 miles per hour, it is ringing and I have basically had about all I can take. I told Dad to grab onto something and he says what are you going to do? I said BREAK IT and kicked it to the floor. It broke the tires loose and tossed us back in the seat. My plan was just hold it to the floor until what ever was ringing broke and fell off or out etc. But no sooner than it kicked us back in the seat, there was a loud thud behind us. I let off and pulled into a church parking lot and this is what we found. The original TCI Chassis trans mount was now in view. Apparently it had worked its way under the seat. In its absence, we had fabbed up and installed our own. It had two bolts with lock nuts still loosely hanging in the mounting holes. I picked it up to show dad and it made a very familiar sound. When I shook it the bolts danced around and sounded like a chain dragging etc. etc. etc.
