    You're lucky I got rid of the 318 from the late wife's diplomat. I'd tempt you wit free engine, you pay shipping. Oh. And it had a (727?) Auto trans too.

    I'll tell you what, it takes some self-control. I've never restored a vehicle, I've always made them better LOL.

    I need some of that self control, Seth! Is it sold by the yard or by the pound?

    I've always found that my self control is really made of leather and paper as found in my back pocket! 8-(

    I got the brakes back together on the 48. I honed out and resealed all 8 bores and so far no leaks even though the bores are less than perfect. These old brakes sure are old school and it was a learning curve. I've adjusted a lot of brakes in my life but I've never had any like this. They have an up and down adjustment and a shoe adjustment and according to the shop manual there is special tools involved. I had to get these things adjusted in a round circle and I was given some advice to use some scrap wood and a nail or something as a gauge and it worked out pretty well. Judging by the marks on the front brake I think I got it pretty close.Next is to pull the motor and have it re bored unless someone has a nice running 230 flathead for me.

    Those look similar to the Lockheed brakes on a pre-49 Ford.

    It's much easier to promise someone a "free" ride on the wagon than to urge them to pull it.

    Luck occurs when preparation and opportunity converge.

    My Dad has a flathead 6 in his 47 Dodge 1.5 ton. It turns over and supposedly ran good. We haven't tried to get it running because the truck is getting a real engine. I'm sure he'd sell it reasonable.

    If he wants to sell it, I am interested.
