Re: Any advice on first Parade?

What ever you do if it over heat DO NOT ADD THAT WATER TO THE RADIATOR EVEN WITH THE ENGINE RUNNING. You'll crack the head or block.

Pull out and let it sit.

Re: What is your collector car Pet Peeve?

Those who try to make a Model A built with the technology of the late 1800 to ride like a car built in the 21st century.
That and rude people who think they know it.

Re: 4 digit engine on ebay

Wish the head gasket was off to take a look at the top of the block. On the head is that a scratch or a crack from the water port to the inside cylinder?
