  1. It could have started as an IH K/KB series, but there's so much custom, I can't be sure.
  2. It wasn't until the 1980s that passenger cars began to use electric heat. Before that, it was steam lines left over from the steam engine days when most of those cars were built and newer ones still used steam because that was all that was available. Passenger diesels had a steam boiler inside the body to provide the heat to the cars.
  3. There was also an 8 door version, both conversions by Stageway, sometimes called Airporters for their common use.
  4. In the video, it's identified as having 6-71's.
  5. The serial number is as close to a VIN as you'll find. The BMV probably combined the model with the serial for a VIN on the title. The WHS should be able to get your lineset with that serial.
  6. What is the serial number or VIN? That will tell for sure.
  7. Definitely not Canada. Some light lines and Scouts were assembled in Canada before the trade agreement removing tariffs on vehicles moving across the border in 1965, none after that.
  8. Yes, I'm seeing the same double stamping of the line sequence number on Springfield linesets, don't know why they did this.
  9. How long will you remain current--probably an annual thing?
  10. Eric Brown, a test pilot who might be called England's Chuck Yaegar, reportedly flew 487 different airplane types in his career, tells of being sent to pick up the first helicopter in England. "Is there a manual?" "No, just figure it out" and he managed to get it to where it had to go which seems more difficult than a plane. Google will reveal some interesting stories on him.
  11. I think that you can click on that reaction and it will let you delete it.
  12. Jim Allen did an article on them, said they were available 1963-68.
  13. Things must be really different in Australia. I've always heard that trees grow at their top, not from the bottom to do that.
  14. While researching the two stage pump, I found out why it was needed. The Model T Ford originally fitted 30-3 front and 30-3 1/2 rear clincher tires which needed 60 psi and the multi-stages. Later the Model T Ford moved onto 4.40/4.50 x 21 which ran at 35 psi and a single stage did the job.
  15. The engine size and serial number are stamped on a pad on the passenger side next to the fuel pump.
  16. Serial number is stamped into the frame rail on the left front. But finding it may be difficult. In the early days, it was right behind the bumper, but over the year it seems to have drifted to the rear, sometimes behind the axle. It may be easier to move the air lines enough to get the picture than it will be to find the stamped number under all the grease and dirt.
  17. I use Google Calendar, works nicely across multiple devices. But I'm sure there are many others like Outlook that do that just as well;Google is the one I started with and know. And I use it for history as you want to do. I delete all the routine things as they pass, leaving the ones I want to be able to recall in the calendar forever.
  18. Not a Pacific. When it was previously posted on a truck group, it was identified as an Oshkosh and while I can't read it, I think that's what the name on the hood says.
  19. And a Pacer too. There was a Bronco by the Waterloo Tractor Co.
  20. Truck is an IH L-160 to 180 with a Coleman front axle conversion, 1950-52.
  21. Probably not considered because I've read that when the Vega went away, there was no further use for the cars and they were cut up.
  22. Yes, that looks like an IH D-300/400/500 from the late 1930's, although there were others, particularly Whites, that had a similar profile. And I think that would definitely be a WWII slogan.
