I got the Nov/Dec 2020 issue in the mail today.

However, it was the copy I emailed asking them to send because I didn’t get my membership issue.

I still haven’t gotten that one. IF and when it comes, if someone needs it, please let me know and I will toss it your way.

What a talented guy. So interesting to see how he forms the sheetmetal. A real artist. Very impressive. Can only find part one and two on youtube, is there more or is this as far as the project has come until today ?
These are the only two he's done so far.

Re: Horn Wire Tube

William, I neglected to describe removing the donor piece from its column. If you wire buff the tabs it should reveal the dimples of the spot welds. If you drill these dimples, the channel will come off with the holes needed for mig welding through. It would be difficult to just break the spot weld...

Re: Horn Wire Tube

it's going to be on a 22. I have no idea what year the column is other than it has a round neck where it attaches to the firewall instead of the square neck of the 26-27 ones.

The tube is the same on the 26 one as it is on my 24-25.

Looking for a simple answer to a complex problem. I have a steering column that is practically immaculate except it doesn't have a horn wire tube.

Luther Mulder was born in May 1889 and died in Coopersville, MI on August 21st, 1954

There was also a Luther Mulder born in July 1917, and died in Coopersville, MI on September 2, 1997

So you know Mulder Motor Sales existed at least during WW2.

Chevy produced the Series 490 automobile from 1915 to 1922. The 490 chassis was a huge success and became the brand’s main seller. It took big chunks out of the Model T’s market and provided enough revenue to allow Chevy co-founder Billy Durant to buy shares of GM stock. Eventually, Durant merged Ch...
