OT: Loading Trailer for Trip to Recycle Yard
Posted by: Lane66m ()
Date: April 03, 2021 04:04PM

Donna & I have got our 10' trailer loaded with all the non-automotive scrap steel laying around our place. We also pulled about 100 pounds of Vair parts out of the storage container and have them added to the bed liners.

Next week we will start loading up the bed liners with steel Vair parts. Also starting to go through hardware bins & buckets to get rid of all rusted hardware. We are planning to make the trip to recycle yard a few days before we leave for Helen on the 21st. Funds from scrap metal should help with the gas bill.

3 photos of what we are loading next week.

Looks like a nice haul Al. Especially since steel prices are at about a three-year high. You don't separate your stainless, aluminum from the steel?

Our recycle yard's policy is if a magnet sticks to it, it is steel. No matter if it is shiny.

I am suspecting I will have about 1200 pounds on trailer, when all steel is loaded.

The LM front Camber adjusting bolts are getting difficult to find in decent shape.
You should hang onto those.
I am in need of a couple pairs with washers and nuts..

To me those are to far gone. I saved 2 sets of fronts and rears. It should suffice for my time as car taker of the 2 Vair cars I currently have.

I would take all of the front ones for my evaluation.
I have a welder and can repair any wear that might be present.
On the fixable ones.
I'll pay scrap price, or more, plus postage in a flat rate small USPS box.

Sorry, Bob. 3 cents for them is not worth my time to pack them up and take them to the post office. I suggest you might want to come to Georgia to just get them.

IDK if I'd go out of my way for everyone but I would for Bob. He's gone out of his way for me and came up with some pretty cool high performance Corvair stuff in his time. They would go in a small Flat Rate box.
I wish my stuff was sorted out that well. I understand when it's time to get rid of stuff though. Corvair stuff doesn't seem to have much value until someone needs something.

Hi Al,
Please put them aside for me.
I will ask John Purdy, who you know, to pick them up for me.
I will be seeing him soon.
Thank You, Bob C

Being from the east - there is always a need for good engine tin....

I'm from the north rather than the east but I've got piles of engine tin and very rarely have someone looking for it. I'll keep it for now but one day I won't, just like Al. I must have 50 transmissions or differentials...

Bob:

You going to Helen? We will be there. I will bring them along for $20. Same $ if I give them to John or ship in small flat rate box. You will get all of them that I didn't save for myself, along with nuts and any good washers.

We will also will try to sell some of the best unneeded parts I have at Helen.
New, used reworked and painted items. Going through bins this week to strip out used parts that haven't sold in three years. Updating the list of these parts also.

Tins are added weight to me. No one wants any of it in the past. Too bad for the turbo front shroud. But it is now in trailer. Any turbo stuff is trash unless it is in for sale bins. Not much for turbo there either.

Jim, there is a kid on Instagram--looks to be a 20-something girl--who just bought a 4 door Late and said "the transmission feels like it's slipping." I don't know if that reflects inexperience with what it feels like to drive a Powerglide, or a real problem. But with that many transmissions at your disposal maybe you could reach out to her.

I wonder if she's just low on ATF. I don't know anything about Instagram, clicking on the Link was a page with something about a private account.
I have no plans to join any of these newfangled social media things, Although I enjoy it, I already spend too much time here.

Donna & I got the boxes of possible for sale parts for Springfest Helen slimmed down from 7 to 4. Photos show Items that have been relegated to the scrap trailer. Didn't see to carry them any more.

So we are pretty much ready except to determine if any of my precious spare parts will go the Springfest. That is to be done next week.
