Me too. Canadian Thanksgiving weekend, Monday off. Shawn took my Coronet front fenders in to a chemical stripper this morning. Maybe get my car going this winter. My wife said the 3500 truck “Douglas” is looking bad and should get painted next year, oh boy what a gal.

Good Afternoon Tom,
She is still kicking, Thanks for asking, She is still about in the same in condition. But she is seeing all of the doctors. And I guess that is a good thing. It seems that nobody is alarmed that she has a lot of swelling from the waist down. The big question for me, is why all the swelling and no one can or will address that concern? They all want to pass it off on the type 2 diabetes? And I'm way more sure that there is more to that story. So, at the moment we are just chipping away at trying to get her all fixed up. Might be a long road? All this stuff is new to me! Again thanks for asking.
Looks like I'm going to have to miss the California Hot Rod Reunion again this year. A little bummed out about that. Kind of miss all my old Nostalgia Racing friends and family !!! But family comes first ! Lots of offers to come out to the races and go back to work with a few teams. But they all understand whats up. It's nice to know that I'm missed, and folks still talk bad about me in general conversation... Hahahahahahahahaha Guess thats just how you set a everlasting impression on folks... Hahahahahahaha All in good fun of course !!!!!! Great bunch of guys. Anyways,

I'm not doing much, Just work and then home for more work after work...lol I did help my sister move and put a headlight in a 2016 Chevy Malibu. o and some engine oil in the old Dodge Truck this weekend. Now I'll have to go back to work to rest up....lol

How about you? Kid doing good? Did you get the Motor Bike? Made any headway on the Ford project?

Oh Boy, Thats a good one. Not sure where to find that adapter anymore? Hummmm
I would make the suggestion that you call these folks and see if they have a source.

http://www.advanceadapters.com/

I'll do some other poking around. I'll call Phil over at Blairs and see what he say's...

One other place came to mind. But I'm sure it's a pricey it would be. Wilcap mite make one we dont know about. They build them for hot rods.

Thanks. Sitting in the waiting room right now, looking at this and other Chrysler forums probably look like a dumb teenager. Most others here with there phones out are looking at Facebook postings, taking pictures of themselves and posting those giggling all the way. I don’t get why anyone thinks the rest of the world wants to know everything they are doing all the time, weird.

I've noticed a few changes myself, I don't get told anything. The one change I see I don't care for is the now lime green bar that tells me about the Mobil site, like I didn't know it was there befor.

I'm wondering if a Lakewood scatter shield could be drilled and a spacer made if needed, I don't know what difference there is between a Ford bellhousing and Mopar depths, length of inputs, I think the bushing in the crankshaft can be cut on a lathe. I'm thinking I could use a hydraulic throwout bearing.

Not sure the Lakewood is wide enough for the bolting of the A833 ?
If you have or can get a hold of a bell housing. Mock the boggier up...

I have no idea what that tire was filled with but that sob was heavy! 🙂

Good Morning Y'all, Nice day here in SO-CAL.85* and clear as a bell... Working on Brand-X today..
Tom, Thanks for asking, Short answer to the question, No.
From the waist down she is swollen up allot. Lots of pain from the swelling and way to many blister pockets filled with fluid's? Doctor's say it's the blood clots up in the hip area? but thay cant seem to get control of all the swelling!
Went to the special infection doctor on Wednesday, he took her off the IV and a med. and then put her on an oral med. Soo not on IV drip at the moment.
So, Not to drag this out to much, We might have to send her back into what we call "Club Med" lol (you know the hospital) but she is not set on it just yet. All i can say is she is one tough "Cherokee Indian" woman !!!!

Thanks for asking.. Best and well wishes to you and yours my Mopar friend..
