Re: V-8 Times

Third class mail delivery doesn't make corporate news media money and it doesn't get politicians elected. It'll never get fixed.

Re: where is this all going

Frank,

I agree. It's going to be hard for some regional groups, local car clubs and the national EFV8 Club. Not having a EFV8 meet for two years is serious disappointment. I do understand why...

Re: Ford V8 vendors

I live 5 hours away from my favorite V8 parts vendor. Service is great and they even let me spend the night at their home when I make a trip to their shop. That's real service!

Re: Question for 39 pickup experts

Years. I find them on occasion, however they are beat up beyond refurbishing. I quit looking hard for one though lately.

Re: Question for 39 pickup experts

Finding one of these NOS or in excellent condition has slightly better odds than finding the ark of the covenant. I'm still looking for one for my '39 pickup.

Re: transmission question

Why not rebuild the transmission with the 29/15 gear combo and go with a 3:54 rear end ratio. I have that in heavier sedans and I can cruise all day at 65 mph with ease. Plus it's a heck of a lot...

Re: Pre war vs post war engine bearings

He was checking the babbit in an old engine? Who cares what the babbit was like, you'll have to pour new bearings on any kind of an engine rebuild.

Re: Freebies

Wowzers, that's generous. Free and it takes time to deal with the requests.

I'm in no way affiliated with Third Gen Automotive, please support this small business.

Re: Anyone know?

I'd contact Michael Driskell at Third Gen Automotive. The Ford Bolt business he bought from Roy is impressive. As is his knowledge of fasteners.

Re: 2.5 ohm ignition resistor

I'm running the ICR35 on a 12 volt conversion. If I remember correctly, I have about 4 volts at the coil with this resistor.

Re: Car at auction

I'll go out on a limb and since it's a hyped up TV auction house, it'll bring something stupid crazy over what realistic value should be. TV car auctions are so dumb I can't bring myself to watch...
