Thanks all. I decided to bite the bullet and get the Neway stuff from CHS. Few extra days but they are the tools I have used and know. In terms of cutting valves themselves, my buddies Sioux machine is great. Hopefully he will let me still use it a while longer.

I have been lucky the past few years that a good friend has let me use his Neway setup to do valve jobs myself. I got sick of long waits and poor work locally, and shipping was such a hassle to get them to professionals. Well I would like a decent set myself. Add to that I have a big flathead in my garage needing some slight seat cleanup.... I want to get my own set. Neway is quite expens

Good memory Kevin. I like the '48 so much I got the '50 to go with it. Pictures once I get it running. Getting new valves and guides Right now. Rnch -- my wife is incredibly jealous of the new town car. That was her first car, her dad to this day drives town cars.

No picture handy at the moment, will try to get a good one. I like to do an upholstery corner and bring the end back at 90 degrees to tuck under the top end flap. Gives it a finished look vs bending it over 180 and stapling. Have to cut back into the welting to remove the end of the foam.

Interesting Nick! I looked at my two spare yh's and the one on my '64. All are like the one on the left. Ill look at my '63 when I'm by it next but imagine it's the same.

Sad to see you selling it Dave, but beautiful work. If I could justify it, Id buy it.

Here’s my 64 with a several month old standard white. I weighed back and forth going with white or bright white. I think I was ultimately scared of keeping the brite white from staining.

Hmmmm a buddy mounted mine and I balanced them using his machine. Like Nick, I think we found a cone that fit. I also think you could mount the adaptor to the wheel and mount it on the machine that way.

Scrape, power wash, clean and de rust with wire wheel in angle grinder, clean with oven cleaner, prep with phosphoric acid, prime, paint. I like the rustoleum hammertone paints. Looks like original cast and durable.

Posted plenty of pictures of my rampy here before, but what the heck. Here it is today working, parked next to its sister, my 85 El Camino. My sister and I were doing a bunch of hauling to the dump transfer station clearing land.

Very nice car sir! I love that generation of GMs. My dad's first car was a 50 Chevy. From there he had a progression of similar models that continue to this day.

Very sad news. His posts were always helpful. I dont believe we ever met in person, but we traded parts and he was always wonderful to deal with. RIP.

I agree with Nick. Looks like a nice car from the pictures. What are the issues with it?

>Tach signal I guess that means the distributor signal? Yes. My rampside doesn't have a tach either, I just ran a wire to the distributor. From their site: "Interfaces to either 12v (or 6V for 12003-6V) square wave (aftermarket ignition) or factory “coil –“ tach signals" "

I just installed the revolution electronics controller on my rampside this weekend. Pretty sweet. Turns the pump on for three seconds initially to fill the bowls, then only runs with tach signal. Works as advertised.
