Re: Pre war vs post war engine bearings

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.

I will add that I have a 1974, 351w that I'd like to build and replace the 289. I'd also like to eventually go with the AOD transmission.
