Re: Fil Bonica is not posting

All he needs to do is contact me when he is at the computer he was using. Not today or tomorrow, I am on vacation, I will be home after Saturday the 19th.

Re: Where is Moose ?

Fil talked to me about that issue and I told him a couple things to try before resigning him up under a new account. I saw that he has successfully gotten online. He never called me to say otherwise. There has been talk on the Facebook page apparently that I think I know it all and I am making this ...

Re: Where is Moose ?

No need to call me sir, I was a sergeant and I worked for a living! I have not talked to him in a couple years other than some comments off and on about the site on his Facebook page but I guess he is doing OK.

Re: Horn Button

That is the only complaint I have about Red River is their shipping prices but I can tell you that to ship a carburetor the cheapest way, which is USPS Priority mail flat rate medium box is 17.00 anymore! It is like cable TV, They sucked everybody in and then jacked prices up. The parcel businesses ...

Re: Horn Button

It is the right number but keep in consideration that on the package it says it was cured in 10/1966, 54 years ago! What condition is the rubber on the button and the insulation on the wire? The horn button for the A2 is the same part, I would look for a newer part myself.

Re: Radial tires.. Mutt rims

I am pretty sure any tire in the 215/85 size is going to suit your needs since they are pretty much all truck tires. That is the size used on dually pick-ups for 20 years or so through the 80's -90's. There is no need for a tire as heavy as you are talking about and to the contrary those tires will ...

Re: Radial tires.. Mutt rims

Most of the guys that drive on a regular basis use 215-85R/16 All Terrains, Tubeless will work just fine as long as the rims are new or in good condition. If they are used I always recommend painting over the inside and rivet heads with a good quality paint. This will guarantee there are no air leaks.

Re: M151 Rally Possibilities??

You guys are talking Branson but Cobra, who is organizing this is talking South Bend, Indiana. There is just a tad difference in distance there. 700 miles for me so I won't be making it. It would be 1200 miles for me to Branson! Sorry guys but my budget just does not allow that kind of travel expense.

Re: Heavy duty head and spark plugs needed

I made the mistake (once) of running unleaded in a Chevy straight 6 without hardened valve seats and it just hammered those poor things right into the dust. Lead additive. That's the ticket. Makes the exhaust stink, but it works. Of coarse what he is not telling you is that he was hammering on the ...

Re: *NEW mutt owner and *Proud

While a lot of people will say that an Encore is not a real 151, and they are right, it is still a good vehicle. And it is the closest to the original looking of all of the aftermarket bodies. It will also last a lot longer than the original. I guess that means I don't get to trade for the hot rod o...
