    Default 1142 Is On the road!!!

    1142 is now quite drive-able. I've redone the complete brake system, to include shoes, cylinders, hoses and lines. Treadle Vac was rebuilt by Mark II's referral program. I had the generator rebuilt, and installed a fresh set of Autolite plugs. i replaced both heater valves with SO CAL Ford Parts remans. $75.00 each, and they work great. Also fresh Brad-Penn 30w with zinc. I'm waiting for new belts, and a rad cap.

    I am amazed at well it runs and drives!!! After I cleaned and re did the battery cables, it starts very quickly. Next, the trunk gets trimmed, and a full detail. My plans are to have it at Hershey in the car corral first week of Oct. i will try and post a few pics

    Good job Steve. Now if your driving that on death trap RT 22, be careful ! LOL Those of us that use RT 22, know that no one, and I mean no one pays attention on that road. Tri-Axle coal trucks! I do not run my trucks out that way, so I guess your somewhat safe.
