Re: Cowl lights- AV8 Roadster

God gave me a left arm but I think he (with my help) has taken away my shoulders.

Cowl lights- AV8 Roadster

A little out of place here, but I'm considering '32 cowl lights for my '29 open wheel roadster project. Any opinions? Thanks!

Re: Installing hub races - what lube?

Instead of a press, try a piece of 1/2" threaded rod and some big washers with your bearing drivers. (I rebuilt all of the IFS on my C**** using threaded rod and pieces of pipe cut up to look like...

Re: twin flathead truck

Didn't Ford build a bunch of twin powered trucks for transporting plane parts during WWII? They were COE and each engine drove one of the rear wheels.

Chassis paint recommendations?

Over the warm season, I got a lot of chassis parts made and massaged. Now, before the cold weather sets in, I'd like to get them painted. I'm talking about spindles, front axle, wishbone, tie rod,...

Re: Bruce Lancaster

Zach Suhr has a wonderful eulogy posted on the HAMB. Bruce was everything good to anyone who came across him.

Bruce Lancaster

I just spoke with Bruce's pastor and he confirmed that Bruce died last night. There will be a memorial service but the arrangements have not yet been made. It's a crappy rainy day here in New Jersey.

Re: Part numbers for F1 wheel bearings

All's well. I got the races from our local bearing supply house. I got the pitman arm nut and lock washer from the ACE Hardware. Size is 7/8=14 UNF. Thanks!

California fires??

They mentioned Windsor CA on the news in regard to the fires burning up California. I think Vern Tardel's shop is in that area. Does anyone know if he or any other old Ford guys are threatened?

I'm using F1 hubs on passenger spindles. I have the bearings and seals but I put the inner and outer races somewhere where they wouldn't get lost. Guess what. I can't find them now. They'd be the...

Re: Bruce lancaster

I saw Bruce yesterday. He's in ICU and conscious but not too coherent. He's got arms and legs moving so I take that as a good sign.

Hershey weather?

We're going to Hershey tomorrow (Thursday.) How are the parking lots? Should we go in the AWD SUV or the front wheel drive sedan?
