    Plymouth, Ca April meet info

    For those who didn't reserve a RV site when the discounted event block of sites was available, like Kurt said if you want a site at the 49er Village you should ask them for the group discount. Doesn't hurt! You should know that our deal was $53, not $65 which appears on our reservation form...

    Plymouth, Ca April meet info

    I don't think so. This would be as good a place as any to talk about that. Sellers in particular draw people from a long ways away so if pro or amateur vendors want to mention the kinds of things you will be bringing for sale, that's great. It grows attendance. Remember to check the...

    OK. Here are a couple images from 2019 and the current flyer. We always have a couple themed showcases. The jeep one drew 65 jeeps and there were probably 10-12 elsewhere in camp not attending because the owners were selling or buying parts, or otherwise distracted. This year we are featuring...

    Turbo classification...?

    Old thread. When switching turbos around it's best to find someone with experience doing it on these engines. Ideally ask around and locate a truck with an engine/turbo combination that works really good and try to copy it. Learn what part number the turbo is off its data plate. I can tell you...

    Plymouth, Ca April meet info

    This is probably the best thread for it. There are event details up on www.MVCCNews.net in the calendar area. The interactive map is not updated due to some churning of sites but by April 1 you will see which participants are in what site at the RV Village and the adjacent fairgrounds...

    Gun Truck - Did you see the post about the big Spring meet moving to Plymouth, CA in 2019? Did you go? I don't remember ever seeing a gun truck at our big meets. Strange. I mean the 5 ton or deuce types. We had to cancel the 2020 Spring and Fall events due to Amador County virus rules for...

    California MVCC 2021 Plymouth meet info

    Kurt contacted me to point out these meets actually started in the 1970s in Buttonwillow and he went to the 1977 one. That was 8 years before I got into the hobby and club. I was aware that there were events in the San Joaquin Valley before Patterson, when people like John Anderson, Dana Zwang...

    California MVCC 2021 Plymouth meet info

    A few points about this event.... It is open to anybody, it's not just a MVCC member event. And it is not only a campout which is what that campsite reservation form Kurt mentioned is for. Day visitors are welcome at no charge and parking is free. The parking lot and entrance to the...

    Turbo Matching

    Note to turbo installers. Always prime the turbo with oil right before installation. Squirt it in the inlet and watch it come out the drain, then attach the lines.. Same goes for the oil supply line. A dry line and bearing housing takes a number of seconds to fill when the engine starts up and...

    Turbo Matching

    Have you run the truck with the replacement turbo? Did you fix what killed the last one? Could have been hit by a foreign object left in the manifold by a mechanic, or an engine part. Melted blades can look similar unless you know what you are looking at. Radial play can be felt. It's less when...

    Turbo Matching

    That turbo PN is a BorgWarner and designed for LD-465 but there could have been other turbos specified over the years. It plus the CHRA (cartridge) part numbers are still in their system. I haven't asked if they have any stock at BW. If that is the turbo you want replaced I could check. Boost...

    BA-DA BA-DA BING BANG RALLY - Atlantic, IA

    Great background, thanks. But what about Omaha? There is some interesting military history there and maybe some sites for tours. Or other cities bigger than where you are. These conventions need to go to all parts of the country and even though your area is not too far from past convention...
