Re: You Win! Tiny 03/30/24 04:46 PM
This thread shouldn't have been possible. Since it is I'll try to help. This is a learning process for all of us and Peter is busier than a one legged man in a butt kicking contest. JYD, Rusty, there are two ways I'm aware of to edit your details and add an avatar on the new site. At the top right of any page you're on, on the new site, should be your user name. Hover your pointer over that and Edit Profile should be part of the context menu. Click it. 2: To the left of any post you make, where your user name is, click the down arrow. One of the icons that appears should be a gear icon that says "Account" when you hover over it. Click that. Both take you to the page where you make those changes/additions.

As for the log in. I too went in the loop. I tried using my email and member number to no avail. I got frustrated and went to bed. The next morning I tried again and actually got the reset password page. You will have to reset your password BUT you can "reset" it to your original password, at least I was able to. I know it's frustrating. It WILL be different from what we're used to. The fact remains UBB Threads is dead. There is NO support. It WILL eventually break and not be repairable. When that happens all will be lost. Would it be better to wait until then or transition now?? The fact that Peter has set the parameters of this form to not allow posts from anyone other than admins and mods but posting in some places is still possible shows how buggy UBB Threads is. It's held together with bubble gum and zip ties. Eventually, sooner more than later, all posting here will stop. We all have two choices. Adapt or give in. The choice is yours. Edit: It does get better as you get used to it and discover how things work.

Re: Correct coil Chipper 03/29/24 01:12 AM
Do you have a carbon core coil wire or metal core wire?. Separation of the carbon core wires are a common problem particularly in 6 volt systems. The coils don't have enough voltage to jump the gap and spark plug also.

Re: Anyone in the Area of the Barry Weeks parts Auction? Nick_in_Manitou 03/28/24 09:05 PM
Tiny,

I just returned from being out and found an email shown as being from Geek@stovebolt saying that my registration at The Stovebolt Forums has been approved. One can see postings there, but not click on links or post anything until their registration has been approved.

It is probably a first line of defense against scammers. I certainly didn't mind having to go through that step. I should have gone ahead and signed up the same day I signed up with this forum...the day I came home with my project truck!

Nick

Re: Fixing my Dad's 1929 Chevy - Its a Surprise! beachbum 03/28/24 06:14 PM
One more thought. The brakes on a '29 have a lot of moving parts that will become stiff and drag. Roll around underneath the car and oil every part that pivots, moves, slides, turns, or pulls with 30 weight oil. WD40 will not be good enough, it dries out and does not leave any lubrication. All the way from the pedal, and the emergency brake lever to the wheels. You need to do this at least once a year before touring season. There is also an odd little equalizer at the front brake trunnion as well that helps the shoes adjust in the drum. If the car has been sitting, or that area has never been lubricated there is a good chance that the front brakes won't be as effective as they should be.

You can reach out to virtually any one on this forum. Either by the chat site, a private message (PM), or a direct email you can print off as a reference. We all enjoy seeing and hearing stories such as yours. Many of these cars are getting torn down to make rat rods, and hot rods. There are getting fewer and fewer. I believe you don't have to hot rod them all, and you don't have to save them all.

For parts the Filling Station in Lebanon OR, Marx Parts, or 20schevyparts online are a good start. Or if it is something else you need you can post in the "parts wanted" forum further down this page.

Please keep us posted as to your progress.

Thanks
