Tough to lose a friend over "politics" also if you know what I mean!!!

As per your brother, your family, suck it up and make things right, you and him will be a better for it.

(Skip) has a better way with words, I'm more from the old school of hard knocks, but were both going in the same direction.

That`s sad Bob.
This obviously doesn`t sound like the man you`ve been friends with for 75 yrs... There may be a physical cause for his behaviour.

Emotions are a strange and dangerous thing.
At any one time a person is apt to say or do things that they wouldn't even think of before.
Let it ride for a bit.

Regret hearing this bob.
My brother and I have never seen eye to on anything(He broke my nose the first time.) except cars. So that's what we limit our occasional talk to.
You can't erase 75 years in a single conversation, even though it may feel like it right now. I married into a family that thinks that way and have spent 35 years fighting it.
Let things cool and see where it goes from there.

My family have always been conservatives, but not single party. My wife's family have been mixed, but in recent years, have moved into the conservative camp. Over the years, there have been some heated conversations, but as time went by, we all have mellowed and agree more than we disagree. I think all families have disagreements from time to time, sometimes it's hard to get anybody to compromise.

As to the 406, you might want to put a can of KD Block Seal in it. Follow the directions on the can, and it should seal any cracks in the cooling system. Seen it seal a Cummins with a cracked head, guy ran it 5 more years before he ever changed the head and it never lost coolant during that time.

Thanks Bamamav, I'll try that product.

Closing out the discussion on my brotherly conflict, he hasn't seen fit to call and apologize. That tells me where he stands. Since he started it and I never said one thing against him or what he believes, he owns it.

Don't let it own you, my friend.

The thing about a '39 Ford pick-up is that that ugly grille kinda' grows on ya' after a while.

Not taking anything too seriously.

It'll take some doing, Bob, but I'm willing to run down there and give him a fat lip.

Thanks for the offer Doc. Not looking to punish him, I just refuse to deal with his vitriol.
