Re: Ford Motor Co during the war.

WOW!
Thank you for sharing 38Bill. I had no idea Ford built so much for the military during the war. Very interesting for sure.

Re: Speed bleeders for 1949 F1

Re: 39 Rear Axle

Thanks Charlie, please do. I have spoken to John at Columbia 2sp Parts.
The issue why I’m contemplating removing the Columbia is that I believe the planetary has gone for a dump. I will continue to...

Re: Steering wheel play

Re: 1951 8BA Flathead

If it was me, I’d leave the Flatty in there. Install a twin carb and maybe aluminum heads and it would be quite a machine. But, that’s me. Good luck.

Re: Ford flathead roadster at Speedweek fastest run ever

Congrats. WOW watching that video was awesome. 6000 RPM. I never thought a Flatty would hold together at that RPM. What does a regular Flatty rev to safely?
