Yes, call Robert Skinner. Tell him you are a friend of mine. Smile 707-449-4200. He's in Vacaville. And/or "friend" him on Facebook, he has posted pics of a bunch of CA recoveries he's located and extracted recently. Very fair prices for you Lonny. And Michael, he's the one I told you about that will help you with any questions you have on your beauty.

Had two folks that were supposed to come
over and help that were not a part of this group.
No shows. No calls.
Put new negative cable on and picked up flared
11mm so I can see if brake fluid is getting to the
wheel. Already now it is getting to the back at
the rubber hose. (trying to minimize new
parts). Have new back wheel cylinders, but am hoping
I can not have to buy those hoses yet. Engine turned
over before, but needed that new negative cable.
Am chopin on the bit to do more.

Thanks for asking !

PostSubject: still looking for help w/58' - Rich in Ov ?   Wed Nov 30, 2011 11:31 am

hay there,

Apparently my wallet decided to take a walk.
Therefore, I do not have my personal phone book.
Am trying to get in touch with Rich in Orangevale.
He had a guy that might be able to help me work
on bus.
Any other suggestions ????????
