  10. A small miracle happened today, I actually got the Henry J sideways into the section of garage I've been closing in for a better heated work area, that garage door shut with a car in it for the first time in 2 yrs since the project started. No excuses now on getting it back together and ripping next year. 20191113_151552.jpg

    Looking in the window from the side yard

    Before I couldn't get the car all the way in to shut the garage door, so life should be good this winter.

    Can't say for certain but I believe the red wire goes to a switched 12v source, the black to ground and the white wire to the ignition; tach terminal on an HEI. Not sure on a points ignition, positive side of the coil?

    Here’s a view from the top.spent longer fiddling about with bits of wood etc than I did making the thing.2 of the bolts go through into the engine mount and the 3/8 bolt at the bottom goes into a threaded hole on the timing cover.

    My friend and I traveled to the next town and picked up 5 old Army file cabinets , that I bought last weekend for $20. They will make great storage for small items in my shop! Boy those things are heavy!

    Found a brick and mortar locksmith and dropped off my locks. Should be done in a couple of days. No hurry, it's miserable cold and raining for the next few days anyway. On top of that, get to work and find we have no computers working. Fantastic. Gonna be a long evening.
     
  17. I got up fed the wood stove and animals. ate and then went to Thayer Mo to get some feed. I dunno something about the angle of the windshield on my wifes Jeep grand Cherokee and the sun shining at a low angle. as I drive past wooded areas it makes a kinds strobe light effect. And that gave me a terrible migraine headache. Ive been just laying down and its finally eased up. It only happens in the late spring and early fall. I aint taking her car anymore. I will take my old 66 GMC.

    I fought with trying to install some Metric GM brake calipers from Speedway. A combination of a "O" ring that has a bit too small an I.D., a caliper that wasn't grooved quite deep enough for said "O" ring to seat properly and be "captured", and a caliper bolt that really didn't have any taper to help guide it through the "O" ring ate up about 1 1/2 Hr. of my time and a great deal of patience. In fact, I think I had run out of patience and was operating on sheer determination......with a sprinkling of anger. I finally sanded a bevel on the caliper bolts so they can get through the "O" ring without trying to peel them out of their groove. :mad:

    Started trying to jury rig a set of block huggers into fenderwell headers to go on my 40 Plymouth Sedan. Of course now I'm going to have to move my proportioning valve and change my brake lines! IMG_20191114_174040290.jpg IMG_20191114_172245566.jpg

    Waiting for some fittings to arrive to finish up Deerslayer's O/T disk brakes. It's time to clean up the work area and get back to another half-finished task. The Jimmy 302 head is next on my list. I moved the workbench over under the lights and cleared the deck. I was cleaning ports with Oil Eater degreaser and Scotts Towels when I left off over a year ago. Pondering my approach to this task was assisted by Florida Beer Company's Swamp Ape Double India Pale Ale.

    Guess household lightbulbs that I've been used to for 68 years are a thing of the past. Bought LED bulbs, what are the 800 Lumens?

  26. 800 lumins= 60 watts

    This is wrong, the amount of light from the bulb is measured in lumens, has absolutely nothing to do with watts of energy used by the bulb!

    Lumens are a measure of light output, which really is what you’re interested in when buying a light source. Watts are a measure of power consumed. The problem is that for decades we’ve been buying light bulbs by power consumption, not light output. It’s kinda like going to the gas station and buying feet of gas.
