Re: What a waste of good thirties Ford bodies.

I think I see a tri-five T-Bird and possibly an early Vette on the top edge as well.

Re: Any tired and true method or suggestions

I didn't, but I can't see why you couldn't. Depending on your compressor settings, the water comes out with a good deal of force.

I keep doing it until the water ran clear.

Re: Any tired and true method or suggestions

I have a KR Wilson radiator flushing nozzle. It works by hooking up a hose and an air compressor to force water through the top of the radiator opening. You can use it with the system...

Re: Thoughts/Opinions on Piston Rings

Best way to do that is find a gently used side shift box and use all the gears, synchros, etc from that.

You’ll need a top with the bigger forks, but they are around too.

Re: 12v battery on 6v system?

Plenty of farmers growing up used an 8v in their 6v tractors. Certainly worked then. I still say find the issue. Re-reading your post, you could install a 12v just for starting, but that sounds a...

Re: 12v battery on 6v system?

I think the trick guys have done is use an 8V battery with a weak 6V system. I don't believe you can jump up to 12V battery with everything still being set up for 6V.

Have you checked all your...

Re: Flathead Spark plug Thread Repair

Haha. Good one, Dale. I was thinking of the smaller ones 3/8" for intake repair.

Re: Cleaning and sealing a gas tank

Does Por-15 make a sealer? There is paint is tuff as nails and I'd assume their sealant would be the same. I've never used it.

Re: Older style synchro

I believe Michael @ Third Gen makes a reproduction of the KR Wilson tool for the early synchros.

If you don't have it, purchase Mac's book and follow it to a T. Be prepared to take the trans apart a few times in order to get the clearances correct. It all part of making sure your clearances...

Re: The Ron Thorne Collection

I have not been to a live Mecum or Barett-Jackson auction, but I thought you have to prove some type of financial viability before you're allowed to have a paddle. That's all that should be asked. ...

It was stated Delaware earlier on. If it's who I think it is, I'm hopeful he'll come through in the end. I've done business with the person I'm thinking of and it all went well. Things are weird...
