The champ is rollin!:D Got it started on Thursday and worked out the bugs to get it running well. Seems that some insect had moved into the fuel line. They had set up house in a one-way valve sort of way. Unfortuneately, that was the wrong way. Cleared that out this morning. Thursday and Friday I tinkered with the distributor and it's components (running on a two gallon can). So today I was able to take it to the gas station and the post office. Tooled around town and it climbed up the hill to my house like a goat. THE CHAMP IS ROLLIN!! Rollin! Rollin! Rollin in my Stuuuude!:D:D:D:D YAY... WOO HOO!:D:D

This is the first time in over a year that the Champ has been on the road. Maybe as much as two years.

Still have to sort out the brakes though, registration, insurance, I think the carb(Holly 650 cfm) will have to be re-jetted...[xx(]

I'll see if I can borrow Connie's camera tomorrow.

Does anyone know if changing the oil in the transmission (manual 3-speed) will make it 'sing' a little softer. It really does a good immitation of Kate Smith in first gear. This isn't new. The old fellow has always been a singer. Well, maybe more like Neil Diamond. It has that rich raspy sound to it. Not that I think there's anything wrong, it's just... loud.

Now, now, Steve. Louis' horn playing could never be described as rough. His vocals, maybe, but only in his old age.[8D]

Ok, so I'm drivin' a Singer.

Hey George, has that storm passed through your area yet? We haven't gotten anything but frost so far. I've had to go out and break the ice in my fish ponds the last two days. Several times a day.
No, Frumpy and Pick-a-truck are still here. Found out this morning that Frumpy looks good in Ermine White. It was white with frost. Looked nice.

Looks like Charlotte is on hold for now. That little Champ just isn't up to pulling Franken-trailer cross country. The trailer has a 7k dry weight and a 10k payload. That's 17k total, way beyond the capacity of this little truck. So it looks like unless I can talk a fella at church into trading, well that's it. One can hope. He has two trailers. One is a small box trailer. About 10-15ft and a flat car trailer. He needs a larger trailer and came up to see mine a few weeks ago. I think the dry weight put him off though.

Here's a pic. of Franken-trailer. This was taken three years ago, the day after we moved in:

That weight sounds high for that trailer. Just to look at it I would guess 3000# empty and gross wt of 10,000#. You should take it and have it weighed. What type of hitch does it have?

I like Lucas manual trans lube in my A-833 New Process Mopar trans. It it supposed to take ATF, but it still downshifted hard. Tried 90w gear lube, and it worked better. But, the Lucas Oil works the best, and the trans seems to be quieter, too.

Ron,
The weather has been strange here.. Last week it was raining and 60 degrees.. Then the wind come up.. Lost power for a little over eight hours, got it back on and eight hours later it went off.. Finally, the winds died down and we regained power..
Friday morning went from being somewhat warm to cold in the afternoon..
Saturday it was 32 degrees all day!
And thru all of this, all seven of the Studes we not hurt..
Hopefully, we will get some sun and warmth later this coming week..

By looking at your trailer it didn't look that heavy.. Wow, that's a load..

take care,

I probably should get it weighed. That would mean emptying it. I was caught in the process of loading when the Gimmy broke down. Still, when I looked under the trailer and saw the bracing and the fact that it is insulated, with plywood walls inside and a full ceiling, perhaps that weight is correct. Don't know personally. Just went by the sticker on the side.

The tag reads in Kilograms and pounds. I forget the kilos but here's the rest of what it says:

GVWR/PNBV (kilograms)/7000 pounds

It has the weight listed as 3500 pounds per axle.

I know what you mean, PopPop, my six horse gooseneck stocktrailer only weighed 6500 pounds and it was 45' in length. Trust me, they make horsetrailers much stouter than car trailers. Yet, that's what the tag says...

ok, I got the registration slip out of the valise and it says the unladen wt is 3140. That seems light, but more in line. So, I guess the only way to prove it either way is to have it weighed.

Ok, here's the promised pictures. I finally got down to the subdivision and borrowed Connie's camera.

These were taken on my driveway this afternoon:

I've a question for the experts in regards to the towing capacity of this Champ. Frankentrailer shows a Gross (loaded?) weight of around 7k (on it's DOT tag). I was told the trailer had a capacity of 10k. This truck has a 259 with 4bbl and regular 3spd tranny. Is it capable of this weight? My gut feeling is to sell Frankentrailer and get a smaller 12-14ft trailer. What do the experts say on this? Here's Frankentrailer:

http://i16.photobucket.com/albums/b18/Studeclunker/HPIM0240.jpg

The mis-matched hubcaps are on because I was deciding which I would use. I don't like the rims. They look nice and all, they're chrome, I just don't like them. Decided to use the Stude caps on the Champ and so the trailer will get the Caddies.

Wow! You're quick, Gary! I was hoping to get around 4k for it. Wrong coast for you though. I'd trade it for a flat bed and a smaller enclosed. Not even picky as to the... cosmetic apperance of the flatbed, as long as it's usable. I am about the box trailer. Don't much care how old it is, just as long as it looks nice.

No matter how many jokes I may make about my Interstate, it's my pride and joy. Clearly one of the nicest things I own. Problem is, I can't use it any more. Too big. So, need a new pride and joy. Trailer that is...:D Still grinning about the wagon, flat broke, but grinning anyway!:D
