Re: 2,379 mile road trip to Mexico and around

I wonder what you are seeing that I am missing. Looks like my 47 to me? Same rust and all.

Re: New brake drums on old hubs?

I've been trying to follow this, and it sounds like this discussion is for 'outies'. Yes?
My car has 'innies'. Would I need to acquire different hubs to do this on my 47?
Thanks

Re: purchasing flathead camshafts who do we turn to?

There's a 'ton' of good reading material here. Makes me feel really 'inadequate', and emphasizes how much I could learn. Thanks to all. And greatful for those tilden and mid state references.
