Re: Prices for turnkey Flathead?

I spoke to someone not too long ago about his flathead. Seems he searched all over for a turnkey motor but the prices were in the nosebleed section. He ended up buying a completed short block from...

Re: Can I remove bonded lining from brake shoes?

Re: 1940 ford help or info needed on weather stripping and cats hair in window tracks

I think the track drops on to a little hook at the bottom of the steel channel. If the panel is off and the seat is out you can see it from the side. Fronts have a screw in the top of them on the...

Re: Fenton Headers

Will jacking up the front of the motor a couple of inches facilitate getting the left header on?
As you lower the motor you would be able to see where the "contact" points are. I put a set in my '40...

Re: Parts prices are killing our hobby

As I see it, it's like there are 2 economies. One economy for selling cars and the seller gets beat up for every nickel, and the other economy is for buying parts. The parts chasing and buying always...

Re: 39 /40 coupe body

The wiper towers moved to the cowl on the '40's. But seeing 4 door sedans become coupes, which is amazing, I guess anything you can imagine can be done.

Re: Just how dumb was I?

Re: Fleathead Fresh Rebuild very tight

I agree Capt. Kirk! Hey Mark, did you turn motor over after the flywheel install. Don't ask me how I know how the "wrong flywheel" can happen.
