Window motor removal

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Window motor removal
OK, I got the door panel off the Imperial after five years of bitching about the window stuck in the "up" position. I tried to apply power directly to the motor to see if the switch was bad or the motor. Just sparks and no movement. Motor needs to be overhauled.

Geting the motor out has proven to be a pain in the ass. Two fasteners are visible on the motor, and a third on the bottom bracket. Those came off fine. The motor? Ain't budgin'!

Where is the mystery fourth fastener?...

Cloud cars..

My younger son bought a '99 Dodge Stratus tonight. Nice sedan with 103K on it. Local car since new. Everything but leather and sunroof. New tires, timing belt service at 77K, 17" wheels off an SRT Neon. Champagne in color. Bought off a friend a mile away, who is the second owner. Icy cold air, drives right, tracks straight. Everything works. Plus, my friend is having it detailed so my son will have an ultra-clean car by the weekend.

Very cool '54 Hudson! 202 Six w3-speed (no OD). Lots of new on this. Clutch, brakes, tires, side glass, plugs & plug wires, battery, 12V conversion started. Stored inside. It's 66 years old, so it still needs attention to run/drive. Solid west NE car, been in OK since 2002. Nice body, floors have been patched, rear floor and trunk are excellent original metal. Gas tank removed and vatted. Carb and fuel pump rebuilt.

Only reason I'm selling is I want to trade for something Mopar, or...

My Imperials’ first show in quite awhile!

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on My Imperials’ first show in quite awhile!
And it was a success! Not only did it run flawlessly, brake as expected, and perform beautifully...it took home some hardware, too! We had our club cruise and show today (6/13). It was a miini-show at Pop's Diner on Rt 66 in Arcadia, OK that cruised to a fine collection of cars and automobiles displayed in four buildings, just a few miles away! From there, we proceeded to cruise 25 miles to the endpoint - another mini show, hosted by Brad Katzung, noted Mopar collector and someone I've...

Things you never say on a radio (military)

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Things you never say on a radio (military)
The military speaks in what's called the phonetic alphabet, especially on a radio. If you simply say the alphabet, letters like a, b, c, d, e, g, j, k, t, v, and z all sound alike. Cops and maintainers have their own versions, too.

Aircrew = A= Alpha.
Cops = A = Adam
Maintenance = A = Able
Canadians = A = Eh?
