Re: answering "sheila's letter"

Gary,
I sent her email twice. The first time it came back with just the first names of three people and no message. Could have been a problem with my computer. Every member of the DMAC who uses our website should jump on the people who sign our Guestbook "like a fly on a June Bug." It is just good public relations and a way to increase our membership.

Hi All.....
I also replied, but did not recieve any response. I always try to respond to these guest book entries. Some times I even find cars and parts for sale

It's a good way to keep this Club growing ! !

Re: answering "sheila's letter"

I hope I did right then. I told her first thing was to drain and clean the gas tank so as not to gum up her carb .I could have told her to clean the plugs and all wiring contacts too but she said she has a mechanic friend ?? figured he would be able to figure out most of that .

Re: answering "sheila's letter"

I sent her a long letter on things to do before putting the key in and how working on cars from the 60's is not the same as a car in the twenties. I hope I don't insult him. I went over draining the oil and vac tank, disconnecting the water pump coupling, purging the oil line, cheking oil pressure and ect.
I think whith our help she can get this car back on the road. i also recommended that she get an owners manual so if someone has one she might be interested.
Have a nice day
