  1. I just sent you a PM, you saved my butt with a gear set & it looks like you saved me again ! lol

  2. Car People / Hot Rodders never cease to amaze me ! Steve (Algoma 56) friend Lyle offers to donate the parts I need & then relays them to my town an hour away via his wife who works in the area, also Gary (Roadster1927) offers to pull the parts if I want to have them shipped, meanwhile I call an old College buddy who mentioned he had an old flathead for me a couple years ago, this morning we go to his father inlaws, walk thru the fields to the back brush line & there is the parts I need in an engine still in a 51 truck frame with cab on it..

    Then his father in law Russ pulls up on the atv & says, "I think there is another truck motor laying in the dirt somewhere around here".. after a few minutes of poking around, sure enough look what we find...

    So I decided to leave the "complete" motor complete & pull the from the dirt sunk motor, plus it was in a shady spot... came off easily ! Even got the half moon key, now to clean up & get Snoopy back together & return Lyle's parts back to his stash ! Feeling very fortunate for all the offers of assistance !!
    I plan to return in near future to salvage both motors.

  4. Yesterday when I was at my buddy's father in laws sourcing parts for Snoopy I get talkin' shop with Russ an ol' area hot rodder himself & he is telling me how the torque tube was shortened in Snoopy & how the original builder didn't want to pay the machinist because he thought he went overboard by adding an intermediate bearing etc., then he gets up & says "I got something you might like to see, it isn't the best picture" - comes back from the house & drops this on the tailgate of his truck !
    Original owner at the wheel & builder riding shotgun in the 1964 Community Day Parade ! Looks like they had no air filter on it & the oil filter was still on it before being deleted later.
    Never know what you might find when digging for parts ! Was a great Day !!

  7. Success ! Was so pumped to get home from work & get Snoopy back together !
    The wire brush & spray bomb rebuild on the pully looked good & I was able to put in a good used woodruff key as well.

  9. Snoopy will be going into hibernation shortly as mother nature has already fired off a couple warning shots, the sun broke out this afternoon so I stretched his legs a little & stopped for a couple pictures 20201017_133301.jpg 20201017_133337.jpg .

    Big cold front rolling in this weekend so we’re supposed to be down around -16 with a dump of snow. Had snow a couple times already. Needless to say my coupe’s been sleeping now for a few weeks! Happy winter

  14. I hear that ! Yep Snoopy made his hour long trip to his Winter Den two nights ago (when there was a break in the crap weather), now I'll get up on jack stands, pull the battery & put the cover on this weekend. 20201020_175433.jpg
