If you hang on too long, it just deteriorates.

Rarely can we get our money back on these 'ol C's. Almost never can we make anything. We're in for the fun and enjoyment Roger. You are absolutely right about cutting your losses and moving on. That's a smart move. Now you can focus on the vert!
 
Best wishes Roger...

Congratulations on selling the 'ol F3 Roger. It's always a good feeling to send one down the road...but years later sometimes old feelings do come back. I don't think that will be the case with you though as you obviously have a much more desireable model there to tinker with and improve. A convertible is one classy ride and since it's a 70 F3...man...it just doesn't get any better than that!
Take your time to fill that hole in the garage. Sometimes I think the pursuit is more fun than the actual purchase.

I noticed you weren't jumping right in on some of the babbling 'round here...but I had no idea you were right down. Poor Steve...I'll do what Snotty does...will lift you up in prayer to the good Lord above. Get well soon...sit back take it easy...and just smell the grease and oil for a change...

Thanks Roger...That's excellent information and well explained. I take it there must have been a fire between 1968 and 1970 at the Chrysler records department in Detroit?

But to all of you here...I'm thankful I have a great place with great people to come to...to enjoy my Mopar hobby with. Have a blessed day everyone and thanks for being here...for all your input and help throughout the years.

Tech- - ELECTRICAL / Maintaining car batteries
« on: November 22, 2011, 10:46:54 AM »
Ok...What do you guys do when storing your cars over the winter...Do you remove the battery and bring it indoors and just charge it for a few minutes a few times over the winter? (I use to do this before I owned 4 cars and 3 tractors...now it's too much work) 
 
2nd question: Do you use a manual type charger in which you must be very careful that you don't overcharge it and boil the acid out which will ruin the battery?
 
3rd question: Or...do you leave the battery in the car and put a battery maintainer on it of some sort. If so, What type do you use?
 
I see many types of trickle chargers, float mode monitoring, proceessor controlled multi-stage chargers out there...What is the best type of charger to use if you just want to leave the battery in the car, plug it in and forget about it?
 
Thanks, Bob

General Tech / 1958 DeSoto heater core leak?

I forgot to ask you Bob. .  Where did DelcoJoe come from?  Did you finbd him or was that the eGay link I sent you?
 
Yes, it was you who sent that eGay link to me...It's mainly delcojoe's rebuilt heater core valves. "rebuilt" was the key word you used in your search. I didn't think to use it so I did'nt find these. He doesn't have the valve that I need (already rebuilt) so I asked him if he could rebuild mine and he got right back to me with a yes, a price and his address. Sounds like a very nice guy! So...It was you once again Steve, helping out yet another mopar freak  Thanks man  Here it is below for anyone else who may need it.

« on: November 22, 2011, 06:38:23 AM »
Thanks for the info. Steve. I'll just pass it on to others in case they need a rebuilder. I decided to go with "delcojoe". That's his e-bay member id. For $83.00 total, he'll rebuild mine and send it back to me. I'll let you all know how it goes. I just saw an NOS valve like mine go for $166.00 on e-bay and it was untested!!

They're not available Bob.  If you recall, that data was destroyed in a fire years back.  I have prices and weights, but no production numbers
 
Bummer Does anyone know approximate numbers?
 
Thanks Steve

Does anyone have the breakdown on production figures for the 1968 Dodge Polara line?  I'm specifically looking for the number of 68 Polara 500 convertibles built but to see the production figures for all the (full size) body styles would be even better. I did a search on-line but only found some ballpark guesses. Many said that a breakdown is unavailable. I have trouble believing that.
 
Thanks, Bob

UPHOLSERY HOW TOO's / Dying Carpet
« on: November 15, 2011, 11:05:05 AM »
I want to dye the brown carpet in my DeSoto to black. Is it worth the effort or should I just spend the $200 for a new black carpet. Details would be appreciated if someone here has done it before with good results.
 
Thanks, Bob
