The First Continental Congress met from September 5 to October 26, 1774. The Second Continental Congress ran from May 10, 1775, to March 2, 1789. The Journals of the Continental Congress are the records of the daily proceedings of the Congress as kept by the office of its secretary, Charles Thomson. http://memory.loc.gov/ammem/amlaw/lwjcli... http://avalon.law.yale.edu/subject_menus...

It probably has a distributor/point system. Take a spark plug wire off and have someone crank it. Hold the end of the wire near the block and see if you're getting a spark. If your not it could be point, condenser or wiring. A big problem with old cars that are not run often is bad gas or the gas will get water in it. In that case you'll have to drain the entire fuel system, change the fuel filter and be sure all the gas is out of the carb. I rebuild vettes and do not know much about ford products. In fact, I don't know that much about vettes. Fortunately I have knowledgeable Friends. Good luck www.isnrblog.com

odds are you have some fuel issue- old fuel, no fuel, varnished fuel..... or a spark issue. What made you decide to change so much? All you really needed to do was CHARGE THE BATTERY in the first place. Batteries go dead from sitting- 4 months will do it every time. Depending on the noise the starter may not be engaging all the way in the fly wheel teeth- not uncommon on older cars, but without hearing the nose.... Check for spark at the plugs (get a spark tester) if you have spark check for fuel. There are many issues that could be causing it- hands on basic engine diagnosis is the only way to solve it. If you are not comfortable at or capable of doing so have a reliable mechanic check it out. We can't diagnose is over the internet without basic tests that you are in a much better pace to perform and reason the results.

check that you have a good ground at the solenoid then check to make sure you replaced the two wires on the solenoid correctly I would also check that you have good battery and connection at the terminals Trick to the two wires at the solenoid is red in front brown in back good luck

Gaynor Originally Answered: What's it like to live in Hawaii as compared to the continental U.S.?
I grew up in the deep, rural south. I spent a few years in Southern cities, about 4 years in Washington, DC, 2 years in Taiwan, 4 years on Oahu, and 4 years on Molokai. I moved to Maui about a year and a half ago. On Oahu, I was a graduate student. I have taught schoolkids in DC for two years and I've been working for the Hawaii Department of Education on Molokai and Maui (with several trips to Lanai for work). I'm also a geographer by training, and that will show up in what I'm going to say. Quick history lesson: the arrival of Captain Cook in the 1770s set off a chain of events in which many native Hawaiians would die off from European, Asian, and American diseases (they were suddenly exposed to diseases that people who live on continents had centuries to resist). The islands would be united in one kingdom. The native beliefs (kapu, taboo) would be overthrown and replaced with Christianity. The land--which was owned by no one--would come to be owned by a handful: Hawaiian royalty and nobility, but mostly the missionary families (the Great Mahele). Huge sugar plantations would import labor from Portugal, the Azores, China, then later Japan, Korea, the Philippines, Pacific Islands, and Puerto Rico. The planters would force the King of Hawaii to sign a new constitution in which Asians could not vote at all, and others could only vote if they met certain property requirements. And later, when the King's sister was elected Queen, and her American husband died, the planters would force her from the throne to protect their own interests. The Native Hawaiians organized politically, and delivered petitions with tens of thousands of signatures to the US Senate, asking them not to annex Hawaii. The Senate and President agreed, at first, that annexation of Hawaii would be illegal. But a new president was elected, war was declared on Spain, and the Hawaiian islands were annexed anyway, to secure the US Naval Base that had been at Pearl Harbor for decades as a station on the way to the Philippines. By the time the local citizens elected statehood, Native Hawaiians were already the minority in their own country. So today, you find that Hawaii is a society dominated by the Local working class, with working class values. In some ways, the Native Hawaiians are at the center of it all. In other ways, they've been marginalized because they are often poor and they "refuse to assimilate". The Locals are not Native Hawaiian, but their ancestors worked on the sugar and pineapple plantations, so their spot in society is secured. When other people arrive, folks are waiting to see a) how long they're going to stay, b) how they're gonna act, c) if they will hang out with local people or only with their own kind, and d) how much they enjoy eating before deciding how accepted they will be. Having set that, the exact ethnic mixes and character of the place depend on the neighborhood. Every island has its own distinct culture and personality. Rural areas are very different from urban areas. In working class neighborhoods, folks are drinking beer on their carports because it gets too stuffy inside to have your buddies come in the house. In gated communities, the houses may be all sealed up with glass for air conditioning, with many of the neighbors gone because they earn their money someplace else, like California. Local people in their forties may live with their parents, brothers, sisters, nieces and nephews, spouse, and/or children under one roof. The real estate market is tough! I saw a short sale for $770,000 in my neighborhood. Most of the short sales are tiny houses for $400,000, though they often have a tiny cottage in the yard to rent to someone else for $1000 a month or so (these are a loophole in the local tax law, and are called "ohana cottages"). Personally, I'm living in an attached studio that used to be my landlord's garage for $900 a month, and taking my things to the laundromat. That was a little easier to afford before the state ran out of money, shut the schools down for 17 Fridays a year, and gave the teachers a pay cut. Hawaii's economy won't really recover until everybody else's economy recovers and people start splurging on Hawaiian vacations again. Land will continue to be expensive because the demand is worldwide, and the supply is surrounded by ocean!

I grew up near Boston, but have lived in Honolulu for 35 years. In some ways, living in Hawaii is not a whole lot different than living anywhere. You have a job. (Here, maybe 2 jobs.) You have an apartment or a house. You have meals to prepare, a lawn to mow. If you have kids, you've got homework to supervise & carpooling to sports practices. So the day to day experiences of life are pretty similar. But the backdrop is very different. In Hawaii, you live in a multicultural society. You probably don't look like your neighbors, they may speak a different language, eat different cuisines. If you have the right attitude, this can make for an interesting, enriching life. If you are uncomfortable being a minority, this may may make you anxious, and you may perceive racism around every corner. You will find that your money doesn't go as far, so you will live in a smaller, less fancy place than you probably had on the mainland. You won't eat out as often, or take as many vacations. This is somewhat mitigated by the fact that you can have a darned nice vacation staying at home. You may find that your professional opportunities may be limited, and you will almost certainly find that public education doesn't compare with what you experienced on the mainland. But it's not all negative. You won't have to worry about shoveling snow, or scraping ice off the windshield. There is great physical beauty around you from the mountains to the beaches to the rainbows. There are opportunities to participate in sports & outdoor activities year round. The food absolutely cannot be beat.
